I am a renter and have a roommate that has made the living

Hello, I am a renter and have a roommate that has made the living situation difficult and dangerous. she uses our private living space as a commercial space, servicing clients with hair cuts running a full service salon. This information she has not disclosed with the landlord. she also knowingly brings in allergens that I am deathly allergic to (peanuts) and its becoming a health safety issue.I tried to control this issue internally between us, but she refuses to leave since we are both on the lease. I am writing to see what my options are.

I live in a condo building in Florida, have a 1 year lease

I live in a condo building in Florida, have a 1 year lease from 11/22/15 to 11/22/16. There has been major structural work going on since January. The pool and entire deck (on the roof) has been closed and today they put plastic over my windows and sliders. We were asked to remove our patio furniture last week to accommodate this. We live on the intracoastal waterway, so the view and use of our balcony are the primary reasons for renting here. they have been jackhammering 4 days a week for 10 hours daily. Is there any way we can break our lease without penalty? We were not notified until after the work began.JA: Because employment law varies from place to place, can you tell me what state this is in?Customer: FloridaJA: Have you talked to a lawyer yet?Customer: NoJA: Anything else you think the lawyer should know?Customer: Just that it so noisy that we cannot rest or relax and the dust created by the jackhammering is having a terrible effect on our contact lense wear and sinus reaction.JA: OK. Got it. I'm sending you to a secure page on JustAnswer so you can place the $5 fully-refundable deposit now. While you're filling out that form, I'll tell the Lawyer about your situation and then connect you two.

I have a tenant that uses a drive to enter the rented home.

I have a tenant that uses a drive to enter the rented home. It is a private road that runs from the county road on my property to access my homestead, my shop building, and provides access two my rental properties. I have a posted speed limit of 5 miles per hour. I signed a one year lease with a the tenant. At the time of the application and two seperate viewings the potential tenant was informed that i am very strict about the speed limit. Upon acceptance/signature of the contact and payment of deposit-i again stressed that the speed limit is strict. especially due to the fact that i have animals and other tenants with children and for respect and safety for all tenants and animals-the tenant and other occupants assured that they understood and having a child of their own appreciated the caution and agreed to follow the posted speed limit. less than one month into the contract i encountered the tenant driving past my house and another tenants residence at 15 to twenty miles per hour! I admit i handled the issue inappropiately as i called him and said "I am Dead f**king Serious about the speed limit. You almost ran over my wiener dog! You run over my dog and you will be out" he stated that he was unaware he was speeding. I asked "did you even see my dog?" he answered no. I then told him that "i dont care if you are on the way to the f**king hospital...you need to be cautious and away of the speedlimit and surroundings. drive 5 mph all the way from entry to end all day every day" now the tenenat has sent me notice to terminate the contract on the grounds that i threatened him and that he is no longer able to exercise his right of "quiet use and enjoyment of the leased premises" is this incident cause to legally terminate the contract? im fine with him moving on but expect him to pay rent unil i find another tenant. also am i obligated to refund his deposit?

When entering into a rental agreement, does the management

When entering into a rental agreement, does the management company have to disclose to the renter major upcoming repairs, such as paving your parking area and stripping and painting the exterior of your condo complex, if this is going to occur during your rental agreement period? Contact with owner of property, was he knew about upcoming maintance, but did not consider it important to notify us or the management company.Are we expected to honor the remainder of our rental agreement, approx three months, as long as we make a thirty day move out notice and have condo professionally cleaned as agreed upon.Thanks for reading thisGaryState of Hawaii

I reside in a 4-unit condominium, all owner occupied, in

I reside in a 4-unit condominium, all owner occupied, in Massachusetts. We are a self-managed property and three years a go a new resident purchased one of the units; this owner's Master Deed is both in their name and his mother's; his mother does not live on the premises.Since this individual has moved into the Association there have been significant violations of bylaws as well as safety concerns that have involved the police: spray painting the exterior of his door with red spray paint, stating obscenities; screaming for hours on end at night while also causing physical destruction w/i his own unit; threatening to murder people; leaving pools of his own blood in common area; taking a baseball bat to the fire alarm; and a series of other disconcerting behaviors.We, and our neighbors, routinely call the police and they have taken him into custody on some occasions and not others. In some cases, unfortunately, association members have not called the police out of fear of escalating the situation (fears include that this individual could hurt himself, others or cause damage to our property). We have attempted to engage the parent, who is also on the deed, who only assures us that this individual is harmless.While we are not certain that this individual is mentally ill, we assume that the presenting behaviors are indicative of such, so we are at a loss as to how to protect ourselves and our property while also being mindful of the law.What can we legally do?

Several months ago I contacted hydro one regarding poles on

Good day several months ago I contacted hydro one regarding poles on my rural property that infringe on property. I set a rate and asked that they look into the matter and that I would commence charges of 1000 per month plus interest on occurring accounts. They sent someone in Feb to check the poles and lines out. Since that date I continue to send letters and bills they are now up to 7000. and have failed to answer. I now would like to send them another letter stating that I am going to increase the amount since I had plans on constructing and their failure to answer me has hurt me further. What is the legal term for this is it failure to allow me Quiet enjoyment of my property. I intend to issue tidy sum to gather their intention to this. As well I will be sending a copy to my MPP . Also do you have and further suggestion on how I am handling this. Thankyou
