In regards to my last question what is the best scenario for

In regards ***** ***** last question what is the best scenario for us:1. Get it fixed quietly and do not tell about the lightening them hoping the neighbors do not say anything to them ( could take a while for them to get to know them and stuff) I can also ask the neighbors as they are friends of mine .2. Ask our agent what to do? She knows we are mad at her so she might see what she can get negotiated. She seems to be " sorry" but I do not really trust her.3. Tell our agent about what happened in writing so she knows about it and get it fixed and if she does not tell them then it is on her?I agree we need to just fix it and move on but not sure wether to tell them or not? What if they will want another inspection done? They have a VA loan with some " escape" clause so not sure what that entitles them to. Closing date is in 4 days from now. The HVAC people are fixing it Monday as they had to order the parts and the family who is buying it is doing the final walk through the very next day !

i recently purchased a townhome with a home warranty. I had an inspection. Haven't moved in yet, while painting noticed 2 toliets broken, 1 tank totally cracked, 1 leaking. Warranty refused to cover sating not included in inspection report, clearly it was, stating that all waste , flow, etc were tested. Now I have a soft D.R ceiling with wet spots, there is an acvent nearby and a master bathroom on top. I havent owned home but maybe a month! Please advise as these issues were unknown to me and realtor not responding.

We have a real estate closing next week. The buyer's attorney has sent us a NC General Warranty Deed to sign and have notarized. Is there any danger to us of signing and returning this document prior to closing and receiving funds?

We have had an issue with our landlord about a wet basement

We have had an issue with our landlord about a wet basement for the 3 plus years we have lived in her property. Every time it rains the basement fills with water and stays damp for weeks and weeks after. She refuses to do anything about it. I finally got the town Board of Health involved and the landlord was cited for 13 violations of the Massachusetts State Sanitary Code. She was not cited specifically for mold, but for the holes in the basement that allow water to enter. The landlord refuses to believe there is mold in the basement and I have emailed her twice since 2014 telling her there is. Can I legally have her (the landlord) pay for testing? We are in the process of buying another property and will be moving, but I want to hold her responsible for my illnesses while living in her property with moldy conditions. She should also not be renting a known moldy apartment to others and has already told me that the house is 100 years old, the basement will always be damp, and she plans to do nothing about it. I do have mold allergies. How can I legally force her to pay for testing? Should I get the Board of Health back to look specifically for mold? Thank you. I also have typed up a Demand Letter Pursuant to Massachusetts General Law Chapter 93A asking her for $6,000 damages. Can I do this legally?

From in Alpharetta GA. 10 months after the contractor

From David in Alpharetta GA.10 months after the contractor "repaired" my sinking front door brick steps, i already see where the brickwork is again pulling away from my house.After removal of the original steps, the contractor said the addl demolition work would be $4500.Now thats its sinking again, the contractor said the issue must have been deeper. Does that matter, or was it his responsibility to find/address the real issue the 1st time.

I bought and paid for a house 13 years ago ( 143 Willetta

I bought and paid for a house 13 years ago (***** with my girlfriend ( paid cash). I put in her name and fixed up the house. We signed a 10 year balloon loan contract and got it notarized. The contract expired Aug 2014, and I then took steps to transfer back to me since she did not have the money for the balloon payment. Nov 5th she transferred to me via general warranty deed and 3 months later I transferred into a LLC and into my trust. I bought another house with my girlfriend 10 years ago(*****. I paid for the closing fees, and all upgrades and repairs ( about 50K) over the 10 years. I put it in her name as I had 1 rental already and wanted to reduce my liability in case of any legal issues and it was easier to get a 30 year loan ( was a 100K home). Basically I was the owner (or private lender), and she paid the mortgage sometimes to help out. I did not sign any written agreements this time as I was in love and I assumed we would be together forever( haha).Unbeknownst to me on Nov 8th 2014 ( just after the 143 house transfer) the IRS paced a Lien on Ms. Wilson due to Tax audit. Jan 2015 we separated, and signed a separation agreement, and I gave her 40K for*****home( tax value 105K)( to compensate for any mortgage and tax payments she made)...not knowing still that there was any liens on the house.IRS wants to foreclose on both properties claiming fraud...??!!IRS Say their lien on 138 was before the notarized separation agreement and I paid her no considerations.Do I have a Equitable position in #138 house to trump their tax lien? As the house we bought before ( 143) has a paper trail showing our "relationship" with me being private lender and equitable position long before IRS debts. I have receipts of repairs that I paid also.

I closed on a house on March 10th but it turned out they

I closed on a house on March 10th but it turned out they tricked me into signing paperwork and then told me the funding wouldn't be released until March 17th. They called it a dry closing. I did not receive any paperwork because the seller didn't have a clear title due to probate issues. On March 17th, I was told that the funding was released but the documents still have not been recorded and I still do not have any paperwork. They sent me to this app called sure close where I can see the paperwork I signed but the recording documents are still showing as outstanding. Should I get a lawyer?JA: Because real estate law varies from place to place, can you tell me what state this is in?Customer: FloridaJA: Has any paperwork been filed?Customer: I do not know. My lender is vague. I asked him if the paperwork had been filed and he said he would ask?JA: Anything else you want the lawyer to know before I connect you?Customer: I was very specific with the realtor and the lender that I did not want to deal with any probate issues on this house. The day before the closing date of Feb. 24th they said the title company screwed up and asked for a two week extension. I said that if we could not close on March 10th, I was walking away from this house. They lied to me to get me to sign the paperwork on March 10th. Now I can't get anyone to give me a straight answer.
