I have a first floor condo unit that for years

I have a first floor condo unit that for years intermittently every few months gets dirty water up from the sink, in some case getting into the floor and causing significant damage. In the past every time that happen the condo association will clean the ducts but never fixed the cause of the problem. Over the last 1 ½ years I have a new manager that, bot***** *****ne, misunderstood himself from the situation and blaming the problem on my unit. He said all evidence point to that. I send a letter and spoke with the board of the condo association without response. Lately I have been absorbing the cost of cleaning the duct every time gets clogged. I just paid an evaluation where a plumber came with a camera and look inside the ducts and conclusion is that the problem is 100% a building draining system and not my unit.I had lost probably between $5-7 thousand dollars at least on this situation over the last 2 years. Which includes changing hardwood floor, plumber and losing rent, as I could rent unit on time due to damages.First, I need the association to take responsibility for the case because its going to continue happening. Happened twice in the last 10 days.Second, should I sue them to recover part of the money lost.

Real Estate Questions. We recently did a dry closure,

Real Estate Questions. Good morning.We recently did a dry closure, because we were buying the house for cash but the money did not hit yet. So we were doing extensions until it did hit. Well in the mean time we were trying to get a personal loan not a mortgage to see if we could get funded for the house. The sellers realtor then calls the bank and tries to get information about our loan without our permission. The bank said they don't know us or any loan to the realtor. The realtor is trying to pull some funny business. What should I do?ThanksMalorie

I need help in regard to filing a lawsuit against a couple

Hi, I need help in regard to filing a lawsuit against a couple that my husband and I were leasing-to-own a house.JA: Because real estate law varies from place to place, can you tell me what state this is in?Customer: TennesseeJA: Has anything been filed or reported?Customer: They filed a claim against us for "back rent" and "damages" that they were awarded by default. We were not properly served.JA: Anything else you want the lawyer to know before I connect you?Customer: We put a down payment on the home in the amount of $20,000. This is what would be seeking if we pursued a case against them. They defaulted on the lease to own contract in several ways, ultimately filing for chapter 7 bankruptcy, lying on the court documents to exclude the property via the Homestead exemption by claiming that her "husband" was living at the house were were leasing to own. She didn't claim any of the money that we were paying to her in rent, or the $20,000 we put down on the house.

My hoa in texas got a loan to replace a fence after a

My hoa in texas got a loan to replace a fence after a hurricane. And it was going on the home owners property. Not an easement!this was in 2005. And they were calling it a special assessment fee. We frefused to pay since it was going on private property. They never filed a lean on our property or filed a suit against us. Now that we have sold our house the hoa called the title company and told them that it was dues that we owed. After 11 years. How can the title company take this 1800.00 out of our closing documents, just because they said it was dues. The title company asked the hoa president if he got our lawyers letter and he lied and told them no. And we had a lawyer send them a letter back In 2006 telling them that it wasn't going to be paid. And the hoa never responded to our lawyers letter. Which he also lives out there also. What happened to the two years if someone wanted to sue you for something, then after the two years you have no suit. Can we sue the hoa for the 1800.00 if the title company gives them the money. Our lawyer dosent know how a tithe company can do this after they ran a serch on our property to see if we had and leans or jugements against us. Please help. Stacy ****** *************
