Does a tenant's new contract negate the old contract? The

Does a tenant's new contract negate the old contract? The new contract says no smoking. The old contract did not stipulate no smoking. The tenant says she is "Grandfathered in" to smoke. The new contract had no written "grandfather clause" that added/ deleted/amended the old contract. Does the clause that would allow her to continue smoking need to be written into the legal document? Can she continue to smoke because she was allowed to do this in the past?

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?

I am looking for a real estate lawyer for selling a property

I am looking for a real estate lawyer for selling a property in Verona, Wisconsin. I have already identified the buyer, and would like to sell them one of the two adjacent lots (25 acre, the other is 10 acres). Due to a neighboring zoning board, this property cannot be "split" into the two separate lots, so I am considering selling the whole property but maintaining easement and property rights to the 10 acre lot. I am looking for a lawyer to help write this statement up and consider all future situations to address in the agreement. This is a really complex situation so let me know how I can clarify! Thanks!

I live in Madison County, Pendleton, IN - I own some acreage

I live in Madison County, Pendleton, IN - I own some acreage which I farm the neighbor on the south side of the property owns between 6-7 acres. They have put in a spring fed pond which they have put a culvert under their driveway to which allows them to keep the water level where they want it. I have asked them to remove the culvert I don't want the water in my field. They treat this pond and since there is no working tile the water moves across the field and into my goat field and I don't want my goats drinking this when addressed they say it is safe and refuse to stop. I want this water stopped. Can I fill in the area they have washed out in my field since there is no tile there? This will force them to put in a tile that functions they will have to cross my property to do this but I am not footing the bill. I want to solve this problem not create a new one. These people keep protruding over in my field and have now planted crop approximately 10 rows of corn after they tore my fence down. Not sure what to do??? I had a line survey done only to have these people remove the wood stakes immediately. They tell me I cant put my fence back without their permission. What to do???

I need some legal counsel form a knowledgeable and

I need some legal counsel form a knowledgeable and experienced HOA attorney.Issues (summary): Tom and/or Abby HouseOn or about 7/25/2000, were provided a signed statement from Conrad Nebeker attesting that the Selmar HOA and Declaration of Restrictions dated June 11, 1979 were no longer in effect at the time Lot 6 was purchased from Conrad Nebeker by Abby Dunn (now House).On or about 12/1/ 2014 became aware (through a Title Search) that on September 23, 2002, Wayne Bennett (Incorporator) and Dean Sorensen (Registered Agent) created and then filed with Bear Lake County (without written and notarized authorization by Lot 6 owner(s)), Indian Creek HOA and included Lot 6.Tom and Abby wish to correct this error or mistake by the HOA in the County Recorders Office and the HOA is slow and reluctant to act.JA: Because real estate law varies from place to place, can you tell me what state the association is in?Customer: Bear Lake County, IdahoJA: Has any paperwork been filed in court? And what is your ideal outcome for the situation?Customer: No legal papers have been filed. The ideal outcome is for an attorney to write a letter-head correspondence to the HOA requesting they correct the mistake in naming our property in the HOA's filing with the county...and then the HOA takes timely action to correct that error, without retaliation.JA: Anything else you want the lawyer to know before I connect you?Customer: Originally our property's water and sewer were provided by the developer who formed a now defunct HOA. The developers's family took over maintenance of the water and sewer system, charging the homeowners $100 per year for the water, plus any maintenance costs for either the water or sewer system. Wanting to get out of that, the developer's family turned maintenance of both systems over to the newly formed Indian Creek HOA, which had no CC&Rs and no documents from any homeowner agreeing to join the HOA. In 2012 the HOA pushed for CC&Rs and could not get agreement and still had no documents from home owners agreeing to membership in the HOA and adherance to CC&Rs etc. That when I and my wife became aswer that the HOA already filed HOA formation papers with the county recorder's office naming all lots and homeowners as members of the HOA. Last fall the HOA had a meeting in which we declared our position of NOT wishing to be part of the HOA but remaining "friends" of the HOA. The result were meeting minutes in which the HOA stated that we were exempt from the HOA CC&Rs but nothing has been corrected with the papers filed in the recorder's office. Those recorded papers still name our lot as part of the HOA, etc.

Pre-Marital Agreement. A California Divorce and Property

Pre-Marital Agreement. A California Divorce and Property settlement. I have a complete Pre-marital Agreement, prepared in accordance to the Pre-Marital Agreements Act and Case Law as Contained in Family Code sections 1600-1617, in which my to be wife and her Attorney signed. Her current attorney representing her in the Divorce/ Property settlement is trying to invalidate it, when the agreement so states the only way it can be invalidated is for a statement is signed so invalidating it?In 2011 - 2012 my health prognosis was not very good as I am 77 and she is 53, I deeded a percentage of 4 properties to her and in 2014, I declared BK and one of the properties that I deeded 25% ownership in was seized by the BK court and sold. That particular property was Homesteaded by me and because of my age I was awarded a $175,000 exemption. The BK Court negated the transfer of 25% in the Homesteaded Property, due to lack of funds being exchanged. The other 3 properties were part of an inheritance in which I deeded the entire 25% ownership to her. These 3 lots were released by the BK court back to her, as they deemed them to have Title Flaws, etc. As far as i am concerned, she can have those lots, however she wants those plus she wants 25% of the $175,000 exemption? I have valid proof that she was the cause of the BK, plus a statement in thye Pre-marital Agreement says; "The parties agree that a change in form of their separate property shall not constitute a change in its characterization and the separate property of each party shall remain that party's separate property regardless of any change in form."I have gone Pro-per and she is on her second attorney, which is being paid for by her new boyfriend, which use to be an old friend of mine. A few twist over 2 years of battle, in which I had to do a Ex-Parte hearing to overturn a court order that was attempting to make me divide the money from the BK court Exemption. Thanks to you and your organization gave me the information necessary to stop it.I need case history of Pre-marital's that were invalidated and why? I also need case history of Pre-marital agreements being upheld in court and why. My agreement contains a provision for Attorney and legal expenses to the prevailing party? Can I ask for that before the final decision or do I have to wait for the final?

We are buying land and there is a issue that has came up? There was a previous owner that when he sold this land to the person we're buying it from ,that he has all hunting and fishing rights for his life as long as he lives. So my question is can he sell or lease those hunting and fishing rights to someone else? That would allow someone else to hunt and fish on our land ?
