My landlord put the townhouse i am renting from him up for sale. He has had interest and has had a potential buyer sign a purchase agreement.

We have sole ownership/responsibility for our individual dwellings, both inside and outside.One of my adjacent neighbors has affixed a metal structure to one of my walls whichfaces his property, through which he has run cables for his newly installed central air system. He recently bought the house, so we have no longstanding relationship.This was done without my knowledge or consent and was brought to my attention byanother neighbor.I do not want this structure on my home and would like to know what my legal rights arewhen I approach him to request its' removal.

Friend moved out of his townhouse after two years...

Friend moved out of his townhouse after two years... approximately 40 days AFTER he moved out he received a check in the mail followed by an email that same day that said something to the effect of:'So here is what I think...' and then proceeded to discuss certain things he was going to withhold monies from the deposit for. Deposit was $2400, landlord kept $550. Said there was a scuff on the wall and one set of blinds needed to be replaced. This was AFTER the 30 days required to send a letter in the mail - which he did not do, he sent an email 10 days after the 30 day requirement. My buddy didn't cash the check yet.What type of letter or response does one need to send to him to explain he failed to meet the burden of Florida law as far as disclosing how much he was withholding from their deposit? Is there something official to send or do they just need to write him physically (or email) explaining he failed to meet the deadline and the entire deposit is required to be returned.Thanks

I recently moved out of a townhouse that I rented for 6

I recently moved out of a townhouse that I rented for 6 years. I understand that my ex-landlady has the right to steam clean the carpets in order to remove the smell of my dog. But I left the house clean. I cleaned the bathrooms and the kitchen (all the appliances) I vacuumed the whole house. I dusted the base boards. I left the townhouse broom ready. CleanShe insists on hiring a cleaning company to come in and professionally clean the townhouse so that she can sell it. But she wants to deduct that from my security deposit.Can she legally do that, since I left the house clean?

I live in a three unit townhouse. One owner states doors,

I live in a three unit townhouse. One owner states doors, deck doors, garage doors, and windows should be paid by the HOA. In the Declaration of Covenants, it states that painting and staining, roofs, gutters, downspouts, exterior building surfaces, trees, shrubs, grass, walks, mailboxes, fences, exterior post lights, and other exterior improvements are provided by the HOA. It states glass surfaces shall not be included. To me, doors are omitted and windows have glass surfaces. Does this mean by omission doors (including garage doors, deck doors, storm doors) are excluded and glass surfaces mean windows? Thus, the individual windows and doors of each unit are the responsibility of the townhouse owner?Also, in another section under assessments (section V) it states we may have special assessments to defray the cost of any construction, reconstruction, repair or replacement of a capital improvement upon the common area, and in connection with exterior maintenance, including fixtures and personal property related thereto... What does it mean by personal property related thereto?

I own a townhouse in Tucson Az, which I currently have

I own a townhouse in Tucson Az, which I currently have available for lease. We have a potential renter, but the person who will sign the lease and make the payments is the parent of an adult child. The person living there would NOT be the person who signed the lease. We are NOT comfortable with this, as we are concerned we will have no legal standing with the occupant, if this person is not the leasee. We have one other concern: the occupant has 2 very young children whom would live with her. This is a small 2 bedroom home, so we would prefer to lease to someone with no more than one child, so the room would not be shared. Do we have the right to refuse to lease to this occupant, for either of the stated concerns above?

Included with a new landscaping plan we plan to present for

Included with a new landscaping plan we plan to present for HOA approval, we would like to remove 2 queen palms located within our private yard of our townhouse. The HOA requires us to get the sign-off of our 2 immediate neighbors before presenting to the board. Can our neighbor block us from getting our landscaping approved because they will not sign if we are going to remove the 2 trees?
