• Is it odd my landlady does yd work in front of the house & she doesn't live here?

    She is either running the weed wacker or pulling stuff from flower beds constantly. I feel my privacy is being taken away from me to have her in my front yard all the time. If she lived here I could see it, but she lives on the other side of town. I think she's doing this to spy on me! Is there anything I can... show more
    She is either running the weed wacker or pulling stuff from flower beds constantly. I feel my privacy is being taken away from me to have her in my front yard all the time. If she lived here I could see it, but she lives on the other side of town. I think she's doing this to spy on me! Is there anything I can do to stop her doing this? I've told her I will be glad to hire a gardener & pay for it. She said she prefers to do it. I feel like I need to move, because I didn't know when I rented this house she'd be in my front yard at all hrs of the day. I never know when she'll be here. She stops me & my girlfriend or my friends as we come & go from the house. She talks & talks & talks. It's really gotten ridiculous.

  • Is the landlord bluffing? Or should i just pay it? 10 pts for best answer?

    Best answer: $167 is it all that much. Personally if it were me I would just pay it to avoid all the drama and Bs as well as my credit being damaged from going to collections. If you can't afford just giving them the entire $167 in one shot give it to them in regular, timely, payments. I would just pay it and be done with... show more

    I would just pay it and be done with it and them. No need to make a small problem turn into a big problem that hurts you long term for something that can be done and over with short-term.

  • We paid a realtor/contractor for an upgraded lot and did not get one?

    My husband and I bought a new contruction home a little over 2 years ago. We paid an additional $10,000 for an upgraded lot.

    My husband and I bought a new contruction home a little over 2 years ago. We paid an additional $10,000 for an upgraded lot. The contractor/realtor told us that the lot was more valuable because it backed up to green space. 6 months later the developer of the neighborhood cut all the trees down and started building a neighborhood directly behind ours. I contacted our builder to ask him about it and he said that there was a 50 ft buffer between our neighborhood and the one being built and that after they graded the ground for the new neighborhood they would replant trees. A few months later they build a drainage servitude behind the house. I’ve contacted the builder to ask for our money back and he is now offering to plant some trees behind our home only. I find his behavior unethical and have saved the e mails regarding this matter. Who would I file a complaint with about this matter? Thanks!

  • How do I legally evict my cousin who is renting a room/bathroom in my home? We have no written contract. What are my timeframes?

    Best answer: In the case of a single lodger in a house where there are no other lodgers, the owner can evict the lodger without using formal eviction proceedings. The owner can give the lodger written notice that the lodger cannot continue to use the room. The amount of notice must be the same as the number of days between rent... show more
    Best answer: In the case of a single lodger in a house where there are no other lodgers, the owner can evict the lodger without using formal eviction proceedings. The owner can give the lodger written notice that the lodger cannot continue to use the room. The amount of notice must be the same as the number of days between rent payments (for example, 30 days). (See "Tenant's notice to end a periodic tenancy" link) When the owner has given the lodger proper notice and the time has expired, the lodger has no further right to remain in the owner's house and may be removed as a trespasser

    I am 19 years old and currently 6 months pregnant. Recently I have moved out of my grans house as I was living with her since I was very young and she asked me to move out so I moved in with my boyfriend and his family and they live in another borough. This was because my gran can’t afford me living there and she doesn’t want the stress as she is 85 years old. I have lived in that borough all my life and have family there and my doctors is there. My boyfriends family home is very cramped as there is 7 of us living there and our room (mine and my boyfriends) is very small so we have to share a single bed so there is no room for a baby or even a cot. I have been adviced to sign on the council for a flat or house. However I want to sign for the borough I used to live in not this one could I do that if I have only just moved out of the borough. ( I have prove I have been living there) or do I have to sign for a council house in this new borough because I want to get somewhere close or in my old borough as my boyfriend does work and I’ll be on my own throughout the day and I want to be close to my family so I can receive support. any advice?

    I am trying to liquidate my parent's estate and advertise antiques and collectibles on various Internet selling sites. The few responses I get ask if I could ship the items. Some people only live a few miles away. Seems to me it wouldn't be putting them out to come over and look for themselves. I told some acquaintances about this and a consensus of opinion is that Internet selling sites has them home-bound shopping orientated. People don't even think of getting in their cars and going to estate sales anymore. Agree?

  • Is there any chance a group of 18 year olds can rent houses in the greater NJ/NY area?

    I've searched everywhere and it seems you always have to be 21-18 years old. Should I just give up?

    Best answer: Time to be Sherlock Holmes. Do you know who is calling the police? If you can find that neighbour, offer to work with him/her to find the source of the problem. Explain that you do not smoke pot and that you are being threatened with eviction. Someone IS smoking, the smell of pot is very distinctive. In my building we discovered that a couple of kids were smoking in the emergency stairway. The fact that the smell is around your front door is a clue. Take a look at your hallway vents. Bathrooms too.

    At the same time you should provide copies of the police reports to your apartment office so that they can see your history. If you document everything and are very firm and polite, they will see that you will fight the eviction and may back down. Nobody who actually smokes pot will ever contest an eviction because of the risk that the judge will order a drug test. Be glad that your building is well managed, pot smoke is a menace.
