  1. Well, I guess the first option is to ask your neighbor for enough money to compensate for the loss of the use of your land. If that doesn't work, you get a lawyer and you sue him for it. You may even have a malpractice case against the realtor but you'll need a lawyer for that too.
  2. You were told not to leave and you left. Case closed. As to your unhappiness with the product or service that's something else. When you don't pay for something you get trouble.
  3. If you want the law, give us your state. If you want common sense, change your locks, reclaim the room, clean up the mess, and deal with anything that happens when it happens.
  4. That's not exactly correct. You can arrange for the sale through an escrow company that will hold the funds from the buyer, pay off the encumbrance, and get the deed of trust released. That's assuming there is enough money in the sale to cover the amount owed. That's right, it comes out of your money. Then, if you want indemnification from the guy who sold you the property, you'll have to sue him.
  5. It's legal. Pay on time for 12 months and you get it back. Pay late and you get a late charge and you don't get the deposit back. It's that simple.
  6. Did you not have insurance? If not, why not? Who is "they"? A deed of trust is typically a recorded document that would come up in a proper title search. A deed of trust means that there was a loan outstanding on the property. It was either to secure your obligation or the former owner's obligation. You can still sell the land but the loan balance would have to be paid out of the proceeds before you get the deed to the property. Sure. But for what? What did the previous owner do to you that's actionable?
  7. What type of mold was identified by your lab test? Name it specifically. What state do you live in? Maybe there is something in your landlord tenant statute that can help.
  8. Tell your husband from me (a former landlord) that he's his own worst enemy. Frankly, if you aren't going to evict that tenant for non-payment, it doesn't matter what she pays or doesn't pay or what you charge or don't charge. Forgive my bluntness but I predict that, on May 24th, your deadbeat tenant isn't going to pay because she has learned that her landlords are a prize pair of suckers who are content to let her live there for free. Cut your losses and get rid of her.
  9. Yes. At the very least in case there is a criminal record even if credit doesn't matter. Just make sure everybody signs the lease jointly and severally (though you might know that already). BTW, owning a "few" rentals makes you subject to the VA landlord tenant statute (though you might know that already). But here's a link just in case: https://law.lis.virginia.gov/vacode/title55/chapter13.2/
  10. Common sense would dictate that you move out and quit paying rent. You apparently have enough evidence to defend yourself if the owner sues you. A year and a half implies that you had one lease anniversary. You should have left then.
  11. She CAN do whatever she wants to do until you go to court and get a judge to tell her not to. If you think she is going to change schools, you'll need to go to court and seek an injunction to stop her from doing it.
  12. If they catch you. Better be carrying documentation of your diagnosis with you.
  13. No, you haven't entered into the agreement. You made it clear that you declined it. However, if you don't want to accept their gag order, or want more than $450, you will have to sue for it. Anything you were previously "told" is moot. What counts is what's on an agreement that you sign.
  14. Bad idea. Could have told you that would happen. Wants to? There is no "wants to." There is sue or not sue. For her to sue you? Sure, it's possible. Nobody can predict the answer to that but I'm leaning toward no. All I can suggest is that you get your car back and see what happens. Then learn from the experience.
  15. According to Merriam-Webster "a-hole" is the proper euphemism. Might just be that the poor employee got a-hold (figuratively) of an a-hole.
  16. The termination was legal. But I'm with you. You have a right to stand up to aholes, especially violent ones and I applaud you for doing it. Just understand that, when you do that, it comes with consequences.
  17. Give us the from-to dates. When and how did that happen? Provide dates. Details count. Month to month rental agreements don't need signatures and they don't have to be in writing so you are going to have to provide a better explanation of what happened.
  18. It's possible that the utility company easement was platted when the land was originally subdivided. You can look that up in the county land records. Nothing illegal about that. It's quite common. There's a lot of ways to write an easement. You can include restrictions and limitations that require notice except for emergencies.
  19. The lawyers will be spending a lot of money on your behalf with no guarantee of winning. They are entitled to their payday. If you aren't willing to pay for representation either sit back and wait for the government to act or figure out how to do it yourself. Keep in mind that litigation is likely to take years and during that time you'll be out of a job and probably unemployable in your chosen field. If your "proof" is so strong why hasn't the government filed suit or brought criminal charges? Eh?
  20. I'm guessing that the board can remove her as secretary and then get the police involved if she doesn't return what belongs to the HOA.
  21. Once you committed the crime, there is no undoing it. My guess is that it's legal to search your person and what you are carrying once you have been arrested. Hire yourself a lawyer and stop admitting to your crimes on the internet.
  22. Or uphold the lower court's decision if it is not in error.
  23. Why are you asking? What happened to YOU that gives rise to the question?
  24. He doesn't need "records." Presumably he has his copy of the CC&Rs. He's free to walk the community, take photos of non-compliance, and go from there. Sure. But having the right to something doesn't mean you are going to get it. Where are the other board members on this matter? He's going to need their cooperation to enforce the CC&Rs. And put pressure on the Secretary for the records.
  25. What do you expect to learn from the interrogatories that he won't say in court?
