I have a property that I rent out to travelers as a short

I have a property that I rent out to travelers as a short term rental (under 30 days). A few people in our City have decided that this right should be terminated. There are approximately 25 short term rentals in our City. Do I, as a property owner, have the right to rent out my property either long term or short term?

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?

To let you know I am 63 year old women drawing window

To let you know I am 63 year old women drawing window benefits. At the time of the sale of my mobile I was employed and not on social security.I had a 2012 mobile home that I sold to my mom and brother in 2014. I still owed $35,025 on it and just wanted too get from underneath that debt. They wanted to downsize from 80 acres and a house to a smaller house and very little property to upkeep - so they sold. At the same time I had listed my mobile home for sale - they bought the mobile for $66,000 (but the land was not included nor for sale). The mobile was on my 3 acres and still is. In the bill of sale it stated:"SELLER HERE BY TRANSFER TO BUYER'S ALL RIGHTS OF THE SELLER AND THE FOLLOWING PROPERTY MINUS ACREAGE: 2012 OAK CREEK MOBILE HOME FOR $66,000 DOLLARS. THE MOBILE HOME CAN REMAIN AT CURRENT LOCATION UNTIL THE DEMISE OF EITHER MY MOM OR MY BROTHER".I am living with a friend that has a house and 5 acres - I rent from them and have since I sold my mobile home.So... shorty after the sale of the mobile home my job was relocated to the corporate office in a different state - I was laid off. I have worked for 50 years and had only 4 jobs in my life. At which I've never been on unemployment. For the past year in a half I was on unemployment - which ran out and now I am drawing social security for the past 4 months. I definitely paid my share.Due to the situation I need the money and want to sale my property. My mom and brother are paying nothing living on my land and refused to buy or move - said we had a contract til death.So what is my recourse in legally getting them off my property so I can sale? My land butts up to the turnpike highway and the turnpike authority has contacted me in the last couple of weeks and said that they are expanding the turnpike and want to purchase some of the land. I was hopes they would buy it all. But since it is the state I'm sure they are going to give me next to nothing. better then what i am getting now! Not too mention if I refuse to sale, they will just do "EMINENT DOMAIN".

I closed on a condo in Rancho Cucamonga, Ca on 6/16/16

I closed on a condo in Rancho Cucamonga, Ca on 6/16/16 Rented it back for two months until August 11, 2016When We moved the refrigerator I could not get the valve completely turned off. There was a small drip and I put some plastic on the floor and a bucket to catch the drip. The new owner came buy to look at the cleaning then went to Las Vegas for the weekend. He maintains that he had someone come and empty bucket. On Monday Aug 14, I met him there to give him the keys and pointed out the bucket and drip. There was no mold at that time, his homeowners insurance sent out a company to dry up the water and that person told the new owner that that has been leaking behind the wall for a long time, I owned it for 4 years and never ever say water leaking from behind the wall or in the pantry. He now says he doesn't want to use his homeowners insurance because his premium will go up next year. He is holding me responsible even thou I had no knowledge of what was happening behind the wall. The water and mold abatement man said it has been leaking for a long time. Not to my knowledge, and we had a home inspection prior to close of escrow and it was never mentioned.Help!

I am a landlord in a village in New York State. I am in the

Hello, I am a landlord in a village in New York State. I am in the process of renting rooms in a 7 bedroom house. Some tenants will have rent paid by the Dept. of Social Services and others will have jobs. Neighbors on this street are beginning to harass me because they are speculating that I will be renting to DSS tenants (true) and convicts (false).Tomorrow a group of 20+ neighbors will be protesting in front of the home, during which time the first 4 tenants (all DSS) will be moving in.There are currently 3 landlords in this village renting rooms to sex offenders and convicts and nothing has ever been done about it. I have been told that the village granted the permit necessary to protest tomorrow.DSS tells me I am doing nothing wrong renting to these people that have no home. Is there not anything illegal about this protest. It seems that although they are protesting against me and my rental practice it is the new tenants that will be embarrassed and feel threatened.What can I do to stop this horrific action against me, these tenants should have rights.

Three of us lived in a house together. only one of us are on

three of us lived in a house together. only one of us are on the mortgage. the house was split three ways at closing. one person voluntarily moved out in may 2016, the move was documented, and he said he would not be returning for any property. as of yesterday, he has been barred verbally from the property for escalating a situation in which he tried to take property out of the house. he is claiming that the paperwork, signed only by the mortgage holder, entitles him to occupancy of the house. as far as we can see, the house was split three ways in case of a sale, which would entitle this person to part of the sale. he has also signed a property release document, but it has not been notarized, and he refuses to sign anything or make time to get it notarized.does he have legal rights to occupy the house? how do we go about removing him from any document giving him any rights whatsoever to the house?

In March 2015, a foreclosure hearing was held on my town home in Lake County Florida. The foreclosure sale of the property was July 21, 2015. The mortgage insurance company has filed a motion on August 3, 2016 for a partial deficiency judgement. What is the statute of limitation to file for a deficiency judgment? Does it make a difference if the mortgage servicer requested a deficiency judgment during the foreclosure process?
