My husband is relocation for work and I need to break our
My husband is relocation for work and I need to break our lease. We have had numerous issues with flooding and plumbing in our building spefically effecting our apartment causing me to miss work, ect. I would also like to include that the apt next to ours was a hazardous disgusting waste land from the occupying tenant that the apartment complex knew about and took no action, along w criminal activity (theft of vehicles) occurring without notifying the tenants. According to the lease, we would forfeit our deposit of 2 months rent, owe an additional months rent plus a turn key fee. We cannot afford this!! I feel bc of the issues and the move that there has to be another way that would not cost us a small fortune! Any advice is very appreciated thank you in advance
A tree fell on our house in January. We aquired this company
A tree fell on our house in January. We aquired this company to do the restoration on our house. We signed a contract in April to start work. Well since April the only thing that was done is removal of our belongings for storage.Since we have had nothing but broken promises of work being started. During this waiting period the house was broken into and our air conditioning unit both inside and out was stolen not to mention our plumbing(copper pipies) as well. Still no work has been started. Now trhis morning my wife recieves an email from them invoicing us for $11,000.00 for storage. Not to mention that we been still paying mortgage to keep the house. We do insurance to fix the house through our mortgage company.I would like to SUE. Thanks.JA: Because real estate law varies from place to place, can you tell me what state this is in?Customer: Maryland.JA: Has anything been filed or reported?Customer: police report, stopped insurnce company from paying out.

Since January nothing has beendone.
Can we enter a rental unit immediately to repair something
Can we enter a rental unit immediately to repair something the tenant (now under Writ of Restitution) claimed in court is a danger to his daughter? Both HUD rep and city maintenance supervisor (who did other repairs on 9/24/16) said this issue was not in existence at that time; now the tenant says the nails holding frame around the attic entrance are coming out--(we have good reason to believe the tenant is engaging in sabotage to the unit). We want to just go in while he's at work and film the work being done so he can't continue to pull down the frame surrounding the ceiling entry to the attic. We fear if we don't document that the frame was nailed back in he will BEFORE the Sheriff removes him on 10/19, that he will continue to pull it out until he ends up causing the ceiling to collapse and then file suit. It's my understanding that a 24-hour notice is not needed if it's something the tenant complained about and/or it's an "imminent danger" if not taken care of immediately. Thanks!
I signed a lease on Aug 30th that was supposed to start on
I signed a lease on Aug 30th that was supposed to start on Oct. 1st due to work that the landlord had to complete. On Oct. 1st I was told that the work was not done but that the place would be in perfect condition by Friday Oct. 8th which I stated was ok. When I arrived on the new move in day, the property was still a mess. There was water leaking from an old washer, I was told they still had to fix plumbing because there was concrete in the drains, the upstairs toilet would leak substantially through the floor into the basement 1/2 bath and there was mold in the floor joists from the leak. The kitchen sink was also covered in dried paint and nothing had beven cleaned. The landlord still had old furniture all over the house. I informed them that I would not be moving in and they have refused to return my security deposit and first month's rent. Do I have a legal right to sue them for my money back?
I have a tenant in a small town home apartment building. She
I have a tenant in a small town home apartment building . She used some type of chemical she ( says ) it was just bleach and cleaner - BUT - seriously damaged the brand new overflow valve in bathtub MELTING the valve -Damage caused flooding in hallway, and apartment next door , hall ceiling in entry waylights came down as well as ceiling tiles, smell of some type of organic cheap soap permeated the hallway , all tenants of 8 units came out- offered towels to soak up wateruntil we arrived- 9 PM - 1 am we stayed and had to rip out all the wet drywall, ceiling tilesand find problem which was the melted overflow valve .- next day had to continue ripping out and drying out area,- rented large fans, specialist to soak up the water from thehall carpet - rehang light fixtures that came down and also cameras that came down because of wet ceiling tiles … Now today 16 days later - we are going back because she says that her toilet and kitchen sink are clogged and have been a problem since ( incident) her words which happened on the 16th of September- has waited until now to tell me .which I feel is also neglect …. what should I do with this tenant … she has lived here in a different unit for 8 years - my cost to repair and hallway so far is 7,177 there doesn't seem to be a smell from carpet and since no pad feel good about that , however I may still have to remove the carpet in hall and stairs resulting in 6-7K more that may have to be spent …. I can give her neglect notice but shouldn't she pay for damage since it was obvious neglect. The smell was similar to a perm smell that some of the tenants have said they used but only by beautician because of smell, strength, and caustic nature of hair straighter.
I am a new homeowner and it is suppose to be the most
Hello,So i am a new homeowner and it is suppose to be the most exciting time in my life and right now it is just stress. My HVAC system (Described as brand new) i had to buy a piece for 311.00 plus a service call for 69.00. The plumbing is backed up in my kitchen sink (Sinks wont even drain it is so bad). But, the worst of all is the roof situation i am going through right now and was told i should get in contact with a lawyer. There was a new roof put on the house in dec of 2015. I moved into my house 4 days ago and signed closing papers on September 22nd 2016.. When i moved in i found a building permit on the window dated 9/19/16 stating that the roof failed final inspection States "Roofing affidavit improperly executed, lacks notary seal, lacks count/quantities of vents". When i contact the owner of Suncoast roofing solutions in tampa florida he states that "Someone was using his company name fraudulently and that his business does not do roofing installation where i live" So basically he was telling me there is nothing i can do for you. I feel i am getting screwed in this situation and as a new homeowner i am very upset that i should have to be going through this. Is this something that the previous owner should be help responsible for? All answers appreciated.ThanksKeith McArthur
