My brother is renting to own an older home in Indiana. There have been major issues with plumbing and heating. The landlord paid for the first issue which was plumbing, but now refuses to pay for massive roof leaks that have just happened. My brothers contract says they are responsible for all repairs, but I read that under Indiana law that a landlord is still responsible for the home to be habitable, even in rent to own scenarios. Does my brother have a case against his landlord?

I have 3 acres and house valued at 350,000. I have 63,000

I have 3 acres and house valued at 350,000. I have 63,000 mortgage on it yet. I have a buyer who doesn't have the 100,000 I am asking for a down payment. I am willing to do a rent to own contract with them. I will be living in a motorhome on the property for a minimum of 3 years. My question is would the rent be applied to down payment, who is responsible for the upkeep and repairs during this time, and how do I go about making a contract to protect me and them? I am a single woman with no retirement but the value of my property.What type of attorney do I look for? What will I expect to pay for this?

I saw an online guru say you can find home sellers buyers

Hi, I saw an online guru say you can find home sellers buyers who have bad credit or no down payment and negotiate a lease option fee where they could buy the property after some time with you collecting a fee. Is that legal or even doable?Thanks in advanceDevin

According to the Apartment Owners Association, a resident

according to the Apartment Owners Association, a resident manager of an apartment building has to have a signed employment agreement, they are employees not contractors, and cannot pay above a certain amount of rent.I own two duplexes on a street that has 20 buildings, mostly duplexes and one 3plex, with all buildings owned by 6 owners. There is a filed maintenance agreement with the county that stipulates that all owners will split common costs like our two water wells, the streetlights and sewer and main road repairs. the agreement states it runs with the land, so all (new) owners have to abide by it or change it with 51% of the owners agreeing to do that.There is a couple who have lived there for more than 20 years and "manage" the properties, taking rent to the bank for some owners but not all, making sure the wells stay in good repair, etc. It says in our maintenance agreement the "manager" is to receive no compensation unless we as owners change that. we do reimburse the managers for any expenses they incur.and since I purchased the duplexes in fall 2014 I've paid a small part of these managers' rent. paying part of their rent is written down nowhere.now, we are writing an "employment agreement" for these two managers. Do these 20 separate buildings qualify as an apartment building, so that we can follow the laws pertaining to apartment resident managers??Thanks, ***** ***** Maxwell
