My husband and I have buildt a single family residence ...

My husband and I have buildt a single family residence on property that we hold the title to in Port Orange FL. We are having a difficult time with the city officials regarding landscaping. We are zoned county, agricultural. They are demanding that we "cover all disturbed land areas." We have bent over backwards tying to comply with their demands for the front yard which has been completely covered. We are doing a xeriscape to conserve water. The backyard and side yards we were initially told did not need to be "covered." Now they are saying we need to do it. My question is this: 1. what are my rights as regarding private property (can I tell them to bug off and leave us alone? We need to get a Certificate of Occupancy, which also rubs me the wrong way!) 2. I am a person of integrity and responcibility and would love to landscape if I could move in first and take my time in planting. Can they really make us do all this?

I live in Santa Clara, CA and I won an unlawful detainer

I live in Santa Clara, CA and I won an unlawful detainer lawsuit yesterday. My attorney's office informed me that the Writ of Possession was obtained from the court and filed with the sheriff's office. They said the Date of Restoration was pending. Today, my neighbors informed me the tenant and two helpers were loading her possessions into a moving van. My question is this: Is it legal for me to re-enter my house before the Date of Restoration?

If my apartment is going to be tented Aug. 12, my landlord

If my apartment is going to be tented Aug. 12, my landlord informed me I, plus my 2 dogs, one of which is a service dog, must vacate for 3-4 days. I am on disability and therefore only get one check per month. I need to find out if the landlord is responsible for the expense of a hotel/motel until I am allowed back in? I also checked another site and in addition to the rental of a hotel it also said that I should be compensated for the money I spent at restaurants above what I would have spent for food prepared at home.
