I have a rental property that borders a new housing plan. I received a call from tree service that they want to use my property to access the tree line that is on the border. apparently there is a a few trees that may be on my property that would like to remove which i have no problem with them doing. My question is if they pay for the tree removal and the trees are found to be on my property can the file a claim (maybe a quitclaim) and take that part of the property?
Two siblings become co-owners of a residential property as a
Two siblings become co-owners of a residential property as a result of the termination of a QPRT established by their parents; that is, the parents have outlived the QPRT term and the property is now fully transferred to the siblings. The parents then move elsewhere.One sibling (A) moves into the property and pays fair market rent to the other (B).A wishes to purchase the other half, and B is happy to sell.1. Is there any way to avoid paying capital gains taxes in full on B's realized cash?2. Is the value of the property from which the capital gain is calculated the value at the time the QPRT was set up, the value at the time the parents originally purchased the property, or something else?

My elderly mother (we are in Texas) wants me to manage her
My elderly mother (we are in Texas) wants me to manage her rental property because she is not happy with her property manager (repairs are overly expensive and other additional costs). I also have property and my boyfriend and I take care of everything. I need to know if it is illegal for me to do this for my mother (I'm not a real estate agent/broker). I also need to know what steps I can take to stay within the law. I would like to set up a service contract with boyfriend, for a set fee, to provide a maintenance plan for her homes (check ACs, condition of the roof, siding and general condition of each property). Additionally, if there's a minor repair, he would also do that for a set fee. I want to ensure that he is not viewed as an employee but as a contractor. He is self employed, owns one rental property and performs these duties for me and some others. Thank you.

My question is, does a landlord have the right to remove a
My question is, does a landlord have the right to remove a tenant's property from around a rental property?I erected a pop up shade canopy like the ones used in Farmer's Markets on the patio next to the house i am renting. it provided shade to a very sunny & hot patio, helped to reduce heat in the house & a place for me a 73 year old woman to sit with my dogs. On October 1st, my landlady told me that the carpet in my house was going to be cleaned at 10 that morning. I said i wouldn't be there as I had a chiropractic appt. & would take my dogs with me. When I returned about an hour & half later, the canopy had been taken down. The nylon top had been removed & ripped from the center cap. The top should have been folded together with the frame. i went to speak to her about it (she lives next door) & her attitude was that it was her husband's deal & i had not responded to a voice mail a few days earlier to remove the canopy & i didn't have any rights because I had been a terrible tenant Neither one of them spoke to me personally about it & the voice mail just said they were cleaning things up before showing another house on the property. They have not finished with the other house & have not cleaned up anything else on the property. What are my rights in this situation & how can I prevent retaliation?
I am a rent paying tenant in Kentucky. I have always paid
Hello, I am a rent paying tenant in Kentucky. I have always paid rent on time and am considered a good tenant by my landlord - quiet, keep the place clean and tidy, etc. However, my landlord had neglected the outside of the building to the point that the local housing dept (or some other local government agency - I'm not exactly sure who) threatened fines if he did not make repairs to the building. The first of which was repairing and painting the rotted wood trim around the house. This project was started in late March 2015 and was not completed until October of the same year. This included a 2.5 month "hiatus" in which the contractor (and I use that word lightly) did not show up one single time. Even my landlord did not know where he was. The contractor has no vehicle so he was leaving his equipment in our basement, which has outside access through cellar doors. At one point my landlord changed the lock and issue us new keys because of the contractor's disappearance. When was on the property he was a constant distraction. Always playing his radio loud (after repeated requests by myself for him to turn it off), smoking right outside my open 1st floor windows, using my patio furniture as his "break room" and using my picnic table as his work bench (it is now ruined). Half the time he was on our property, he was on a smoke break. And most days he was only here for a few hours. Needless to say, I was beyond relieved when the work was finally finished. Then, a few months later, I informed my landlord that I would be traveling out of the country for one month (1/15 - 2/15) and wanted to give him rent for both of the months I would be gone. He informed me that this was good timing because he needed to install a new toilet in my bathroom. During my trip, he decided to update the entire bathroom (fine with me, right?). Well, upon my return to the US, he informed me that he was unable to finish my bathroom in time and that I would be without a shower for a couple of days. This fact annoyed me but it wasn't the end of the world. However, upon entering my apartment, I discovered that the entire place was covered in a layer of construction dust. I have somewhat of an open floor plan - somewhere between a studio and a 1 bedroom. The bathroom runs off my kitchen. But dust covered everything in apartment - everything. It was obvious he made no effort to contain the dust to the bathroom and/or kitchen, which would have been easily done with two or three old bed sheets. When I called to discuss (in a very civil manner) he quickly came up with an excuse to end the conversation and said he would have to call me back. He never did. I repeated asked for a deduction in rent because of the length of time it took my to clean every single item in my apartment. Those requests have never been addressed - he just ignores them. Then, in August of this year, he informed me that he needed to do more work to the outside of the building. This time it was replacing the sidewalk on the side of the building (which is about 50 feet long) and some repair work to my back patio and the deck directly above me. He hired the same worthless, inconsiderate contractor to the jobs. Well, needless to say, the work is still continuing with no sign of it ever finishing. I have requested a deduction in rent base on the loss of use of my patio and lack of peaceful enjoyment of my property. I work from hoe often and have a non-typical work schedule to begin with so it is extremely distracting to have a cement mixer, saw and other loud equipment being used right outside my widow. Not only has he denied my rent deduction requests he has actually raised my rent each of the past two years. I would like to move (I am currently month to month to I would not be breaking my lease) but I recently suffered a serious leg injury so moving is not an option at this time. Am I within my rights to withhold rent until this job is finished? Is there any law requiring work being done to a rental property to be completed in an acceptable amount of time? I am having difficulty interpreting Kentucky law on this subject. I am not only losing use of my property but I am losing my mind with this contractor constantly disturbing my piece. One more note, the contractor leaves an unacceptable mess on our property at the end of each day, despite my requests that he leave it in a clean and usable manner. Please advise. Thank you.
