My mother is living in a retirement apartments and it takes

My mother is living in a retirement apartments and it takes her whole check to live there. Well they were told they had bed bugs so her friend that lives with her and he shares the rent he is on the lease also. His son foot the bill for two days in a motel room. And they sprayed or what ever they do. My mother and her friend weren't the only ones that had bed bugs in the place. My sister and I couldn't put her up because my wife smokes and my sister takes care of my dad. Well after taking care of bed bugs once they are now saying they have them again and want them out for a week to treat. I think they should have to accommodate them since they have no money and no where to go. This is really a bad deal and my sister and I are stuck not knowing what to do.

I was looking to relocate from Illinois to Wisconsin. I

I was looking to relocate from Illinois to Wisconsin. I found an apartment online, because of work I was not able to go to Wisconsin immediately. I did an application. I asked them for pictures of the apartment, I was told to contact the on-site manager, which I did do and he did send a photo. I completed the paperwork and sent a deposit in the amount of first months rent. I received a phone call from the management office asking for another months security, which I did send. About two weeks after the approval I went to the apartment, this was to take measurements and sign the lease agreement. The apartment was dirty, the 2 bedrooms was only one bedroom and what appeared to be something the size of a pantry. Because it was Sunday, on Monday I called the management office. I told them that I could not take the apartment. I was told that we had an agreement and that my application was the agreement. Since the agreement is only for six months and I did need a place to stay I decided to try and deal with the situation. I was told by the office to contact the site manager and make arrangments to pick-up the keys. When I called him I was told that I must pay another months rent. I told him that the ad said that my first months rent was half off, he told me that I was wrong and that that was only on the one bedroom apartments, I hung-up. I still live in Illinois and have never lived in Wisconsin. I do have a copy of the ad that was posted, giving me half off first months rent, this seem like bait-n-switch. Can they hold 2 months rent on a six month lease for an apartment tht I never lived inand never had keys to?

My ex-brother-in-law was deeded S40ft of an acre which

My ex-brother-in-law was deeded S40ft of an acre which included a barn. My ex-husband was left the rest of the acre. When he mother passed away he was the executor of the will. He wrote out the warranty deeds and filed his deed with the Appraisal District the same day he probated the will, but when he did so he went from the s40ft of the acre to 13,330 feet. My ex-husband has passed away and I am trying to get the estate in order. He has already sold the lot to a neighbor. There is no specific language saying where the lot starts and ends. Is this legal and is there anything I can do about it?

I am a tenant who has been having issues with the A/C in the

I am a tenant who has been having issues with the A/C in the home since May. The A/C has gone out 6 times and because the house is covered under the home warranty the same company continues to come out. A new unit was installed approximately a month ago and because it was installed wrong the unit has been leaking and currently the leak has caused a major whole in the ceiling in the living room. Due to this whole, the insulation, that is made of fiberglass is dropping down on the living room. What are my rights as a tenant? Can I opt to move out and break my lease or have the landlord pay for my hotel?

I live in Murfreesboro, TN. I bought my home new in December

Hello, I live in Murfreesboro, TN. I bought my home new in December of 2013. I was told there was no HOA and was very careful to read the warranty deed to my home and there is nothing that states my home is associated with a HOA. TThere is no common area, no pool, play ground, etc. Recently some of the homeowners have brought to our attention that there are CCR's registered with the county and that there was a non-profit HOA established by the developer in 2008 who is now deseased. The HOA was never officially handed off to the homeowners but the developement is now more than 75% complete. The HOA was disolved by the state in 8/2011 for non payment of corporation fees. There was recently a meeting held in which a board of directors was elected and are moving forward with a mandatory HOA and enforcement of the original restrictions. The issue is alot of the homes were built by different builders after the HOA was disolved and many have violoations of the original CCR's. Some include windows that are less than 6 feet tall on the first floor of the home. Some driveways are wider than 25 feet in the turnaround area and there are some circular driveways all of which are violations of the original restrictions. Would the homeowners that bought homes during the period that the HOA was disolved be required if asked to correct these violations? Can the new board pick and choose which viloations they want to enforce? To correct some of these violations could cost homeowners tens of thousnads of dollars?
