We are renters in a home. We had a washer installed by Rent

We are renters in a home. We had a washer installed by Rent A Center, that had a defective hose. The first floor was flooded and had to be completely torn up. We were not able to occupy the home, we work from home and home school. What are our best options to recover losses, especially those that aren't quantifiable (wages for self employment, having belongings delivery delayed, etc.)?

I live on the third floor of a new apartment complex on Arrowcreek

I live on the third floor of a new apartment complex on Arrowcreek Parkway. The person(s) living directly below me on the second floor, play their music so loud that my floor actually vibrates with the bass sounds. It booms at various hours, including 7AM, the afternoon, and evening hours. I've reported it to the office 5 times and it continues. I work from home and have blood pressure issues. This noise is very disruptive. What can I do?JA: Real Estate issues can be tricky and expensive. The Real Estate Lawyer will need to help you with this.

I am a landlord, signed a lease with a woman on the 21st,she started moving things in - on her application she listed references I called they were good- I asked her for her current landlords number she texted me the number I call to get the reference - it's good - BUT- I found out on the 22nd that I had never talked to her current landlord, she lied to me - I called her on it she broke down crying and said she had lied about it and told me that she wasnt working as an RN like I was led to believe she was working from home for her son. She told me to discuss it with my husband and let her know if she needed to get her things and move out. (I should say that I went to alot of extra expense letting her move in a week early trying to get it ready. Anyway, I gave her deposit and pet deposit back and kept one months rent. I live in WV, my lease covers her breach of contract.JA: The Lawyer will need to help you with this. Have you consulted a lawyer yet?Customer: not yetJA: Is there anything else the Lawyer should be aware of?Customer: Just that I have since spoken to her current landlord and he says that she has not paid a full months rent in 3 months and has a lease with him til July or August - and I guess a copy of my leaseJA: OK. Got it. I'm sending you to a secure page on JustAnswer so you can place the $5 fully-refundable deposit now.

My neice was working as an exec Warner -

hello -My neice was working as an exec for Time Warner - she fell ill during this time and her Blue Cross Blue Shield refused to have her tested for Lymes Disease - a $2K test. AFter much time, I gladly paid for the test and it came back positive in the extreme. During here coverage under BCBS-they said they do not cover Lymes Disease and she continued to go toDrs. who proscribed hundreds of antibiotics. Her alimentary system is now paralyzed- Time Warner let her work from home for a while and have now terminated her position. They told her she only had 3 months of COBRA - I have been paying for her holistic medical bills and she is quite a bit better, however, after her termination in Dec 2015 and the mere 3 months of Cobra - I can no longer afford the previous $3K a month and now much more for her holistic doctors, which are the only doctors who have been able to keep her alive. She weighs 74 lbs. and can barely walk. She also has needed psychological counseling since she went from an honour college grad to a great job to an invalid within 3 years. Our question is what do we do now? Disability says it will take a year to get her on Medicare -that Medicaid will only cover emergencies. I thought Cobra was for a much longer period - and nowwe need to know about Obamacare - how to get her on it, what will we have to pay since she is unemployable and will they allow payment forthe holistic treatment that is the only thing that is keeping her alive.This is a family nightmare and we are having trouble getting clear answers from anyone,. Especially what doctors who take Medicare willtreat her when we get that or Obamacare when we get that. In the meantime, we are just hanging on and praying.thanks,kdw

I am researching a company to see if they are legitimate. It is a work from home offer that involves purchasing and shipping products specified from a purchase order. They claim to allow me access to their bank account and transfer funds to one or more of my credit cards to make the purchases. "After two weeks probation period they will provide a company credit card" Sounds like a scam to me... They said I can check them out through Official Federal Office of Justice is zefix.chCommercial Register: 27.06.2005Legal Domicile: Yverdon-les-bains (VD)Legal Form: Joint stock companyTrade Register Number: CH-550.1.044.369-0Commercial Registry Office: Canton of VaudWebsite: www.kcswisstrade.comAre they for real or just another scam?

My 40 year old son has never been married or held a regular

My 40 year old son has never been married or held a regular paying job for more than 2 years. He has no children. He gets a little money and then quits his job until his money is gone. He tries to get jobs that are seasonal so he doesn't have to work regular hours through out the year to keep a regular paycheck coming in. He moved in with me 2 years ago because he couldn't afford to live alone. He doesn't help with any of the bills, groceries or chores unless he is asked to do a chore. He is obsessed with playing games on his phone. He is currently helping his grandfather farm who pays him enough to pay his bills, but he constantly does not manage his money to pay his bills on time. He will let a bill go without being paid until it is a huge amount then goes into a panic trying to pay down the bills. He blows his money on what he wants instead of what he needs to pay. He has stolen money out of my purse, stolen my diamond ring to pawn it, he has sold everything he has that is worth anything, yet he won't look for a better job. He has ran up charges on my credit cards without my permission and gets very angry at me if he has to pay me back. He is verbally abusive, threating and makes gestures of hitting me when he has his mad fits. He gets very angry when he has to do any work or chore. He is also very angry at his grandfather. His thinking isn't normal. I have asked him many times to move out and he won't. His grandfather and I both try to help him and be nice, but he doesn't see it that way. He sees it as control and superiority problems on our part. He gets angry with me because I have a very good paying job that allows me not to do physical labor and work from home. He throws that up in my face constantly. He wouldn't finish college so he has very little training or skills. He thinks everyone should take care of him including the bank when he overdraws or his check bounces. Is there any way I can get him declared as incompetent and get mental counseling for him or any legal action I can take to get him out of my house. If this continues I believe he will eventually harm me. My theory is if he has a problem with me or his grandfather, he should get another job and move away from us so he won't have to try to get along with us. We are a hard working responsible people of good character who try to get him to do the same for his own good. But, we have failed. It would be best if he would move away from us so he could live like he wanted without involving us.

Several years ago, I was going through some major financial

Several years ago, I was going through some major financial losses (due to embezzlement, overt theft, and threatened foreclosure on my house. Fortunately, I was able to sell the house to some cash buyers just before foreclosure, and I paid off multiple debts (including the IRS, my family and some bank loans), and ended up with very little cash left and no assets. I moved into a small apartment, and shortly thereafter, my wife was diagnosed with cancer, and I took what little cash I had and invested about $20,000 in a company called “GoDaddy,” which advertised that I could work from home on my computer selling websites and .com companies locally, with the implication that I could make a good return on my investment.My intent was to help pay for some of my wife's debts which I anticipated would be significant, given my limited income (Medicare Disability). However, she died shortly thereafter, and I developed some significant medical problems requiring several hospitalizations and procedures. I attempted to get a refund on my investment, but the company refused to do so. After multiple attempts, I stopped trying and wrote it off as another “loss,” and forgot about it. Since then, I was forced to move in with some family, and left Texas and moved to Oklahoma City, where I began to recover slowly and regain some functioning physically and cognitively. I am currently looking into some reduced housing available only to low income families or singles, but have not yet established Oklahoma residency.Last week, I received a call from a company called “E Business Financial,” and the representative who contacted me stated that they had purchased “GoDaddy,” and were in the process of returning the investments to selected people who had not used the product. The stated return to me was “$27,500,” (apparently the difference was due to “interest earned” on the account), but with the stipulation that the company was required (by their bylaws) to collect 20% of the return. I was informed that if I were to send them $5,500 by Cashier's Check, that they would then send me the remaining $22,500.I suspected this was a scam and did some online research, some of which I cut and pasted onto the document attachment, but on the website, there is no way to upload it. It is a bit more lengthy than my “question,” but is available, and I think, informative regarding the issue, and I can send it separately, if desired. After you review my question and get back to me when it is convenient, I will send it if requested; there is no urgency, and I do not plan to act until I hear from someone knowledgeable and can make a plan as to the next step. Thank you.Respectfully,Terry D. Woodard, MD, FACPe-mail:***@******.***cell phone:(###) ###-####
