I sold a rental SFR in Aurora Colorado April 29. The Realtor

I sold a rental SFR in Aurora Colorado April 29. The Realtor advertised on the MLS that I would provide a Blue Ribbon Home Warranty to the buyer for 12 months from the date of closing. When we signed a sales contract, it stated we would provide a Home warranty for 12 months from the date of closing. When we closed, the sale occurred without a home warranty included in the sale. In August, the buyer realized they had not gotten a home warranty and emailed my Realtor that they wanted the home warranty. I asked my Realtor who she used for home warranty and she said First American. I called and bought a home warranty, the buyer then says it is not the right kind to cover the evaporative cooler; so I cancelled it and bought a Select Home Warranty which is the same as I have at my residence that does cover evap coolers and actually had a lower co-pay that First American. Because I bought the First American policy in the buyers name, I could not cancel the First American Plan. I had to ask the buyer to email First American to cancel the pla for my refund. Fron the date of my request to the buyer, 8/17/16, the buyer did not make the email cancellation within 30 days of the purchase, thereby losing to free look provision for 30 days and was charged a $ 50 cancellation fee plus a reduction in premium refunded due to proration of the policy in force past the free look date. The second plan I bought from Select Home Warranty has been in force since 8/17/16 and was purchase for a year from date of policy purchase which was 8/17/16. The contract only called for 12 months from date of purchase of the property so the property buyer was getting the full 12 months even though we were 4 months after purchase when the issue was presented to me. Now, to further complicate the matter, my Realtor originally put into the MLS sales ad for the property that a Blue Ribbon Home Warranty would be provided and now the property buyer insists that I provide that or she will sue. In summary, I am now out $ 675 for two home warranties, the Select HW is valid which cost $ 375 and covers everything. The property buyer has not followed through on my request to have them send a valid cancellation request to First American to cancel the first plan so I can get my refund; and now she wants neither of the plan described but wants the Blue Ribbon plan or she will sue. What is my liability and what is beyond the contratual demands from the property buyer just described. What should I do to follow Colorado law and fairness to me and the property buyer? Thanks

I have signed a Warranty Deed with the title to the property being held in my name and another person as joint Tenants with Full Rights of Survivorship. It has been filed in the Lee County Clerk's office. Now myself and the other person do not agree on occupancy and do not want to hold title in this manner. How do I go about changing the ownership language.

Yeah I moved into an apartment on August 12th of this year.

Yeah I moved into an apartment on August 12th of this year. Less than 30 days after moving in we had a termite infestation in our bedroom, which they came in and vacuumed them and told us not to open the windows. This left our house extrmeley hot and stuffy, but if we opened the windows termites were pouring in. So fast forward to this Sunday, they infested the apartment again and even more this time. The maintenance vacuumed them and then AGAIN yesterday they came back, and we found them in our clothes, shoe boxes, even eating into our brand new furtnireJA: Because real estate law varies from place to place, can you tell me what state this is in?Customer: CAJA: Has any paperwork been filed?Customer: No.....we asked them very specifically if they have any issue with pests and they said no and did not include any type of disclosureJA: Anything else you want the lawyer to know before I connect you?Customer: No not at this point

We were scheduled to close on a home on September 7. I set

We were scheduled to close on a home on September 7. I set utilities in our name to continue service and avoid disconnect/reconnect fees on the same date as the seller's cancellation. Closing was delayed, and on the 12th, we stopped by the house to peek in Windows because we found out the house was vacant, only to discover a massive leak in an external wall. We immediately called our agent and the water company so the seller could make repairs. On the 14th, we reinspected the home only to find no more running water, and wet paint over a distorted internal wall, and a wet external wall. There was no evidence of the wall being cut open to inspect insulation or subflooring. Due to concern of mold, which is heavy in this region, we tried to cancel the contract. Now, the seller's are threatening to sue us for damage because the water was in our name if we don't continue with the purchase, and allow them to make repairs. What are our rights/responsibilities, and who would win if there were a lawsuit?

I have been experiencing excessive noise in my apartment in

Hello, I have been experiencing excessive noise in my apartment in Mansfield, TX. I went to the offending tenant who lives above me, and I've gone to the property manager several times, the latest time in writing by certified return receipt. I've documented the dates and times of the excessive noise. The manager apparently speaks to the tenant, but within weeks, sometimes only days, it's excessively noisy again with loud banging, bumping, and thumping all day and night. At this point, I'm done. What recourse do I have to move?

I rented a house. No lease was signed. Now am being evicted

I have rented a house from a friend, the deal was she would buy the material and we would do the work. I gave her two lease agreements that she didn't sign. They bought the bathroom sink and tile. We have put in over $6000 of our money to fix this dump. Its been almost 2 years and we are still living in boxes. I can't pay rent and fix this house. Now they are trying to evict use for non payment of rent so they can sell. They said they would give me a lease, but I got a 3 day notice. I'm in a wheelchair and sick, what do I do?This is in the state of Florida.I received an eviction summons today.I have an affidavit about her buying the materials. We had to haul off trash people left, new sink, pump, had to fix septic, new walls, we are still living in boxes. There is no way I could move in 30 days. I don't even have a running car.

My daughter is living in a rental house in Columbia Missouri

My daughter is living in a rental house in Columbia Missouri with three other roomates. The house has had a number of issues and the property management company has not done a number of repairs. Two of the issues have become pretty major at this point. There was a hole in the ceiling in the front room of the house and there were squirrels invading the same area. The squirrels have managed to break the temporary cover (a piece of cardboard put there by previous tenant) and there was actually a squirrel loose inside of the house. The property management company came over and removed the one squirrel but there are other squirrels that you could see looking out of the opening (about a 1 foot square opening). They also nailed some plywood over the hole and said someone sprayed a repellant into the attic. However the squirrels remain and the property management company has not made any arrangements to remove the squirrels or to repair the ceiling. There are some other issues as well but this one seems to be a health and safety issue with the squirrels. What can be done to get them to effect repairs and remove the rodents as well as to work on the other items?
