The house next door is a rental, we have paid to have the tree cut in the past ,but it has become a big problem it's over my roof and removing the slates : Your home owners insurance has been canceled as the tree is dangerous. Over two years now,the owner made a big show of marking the tree ,but rented the house again.and the renter's are responsible for maintaining the garden.They obviously didn't have the kind of money needed to take care of this problem. Right now it's rented,but not like before he takes care of the property it was rent to own.I would be greatfull to understand the law I'm in South Carolina. Union.

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?
