If someone bought the property, you must file a petition with the court immediately. You are going to need a lawyer as this is no time and place to learn the ropes of this kind of case. Lack of notice is a valid reason to overturn the sale, but some courts are putting the burden on the taxpayer when it should be on the taxing body. If you pay taxes on other property in the same county that comes to your correct address, there is a line of cases that should be helpful to you, especially the...
Write a letter stating that you require specific notice at least 24 hours in advance of the date and time of any non-emergency visit. State exactly what happened and that this is an invasion of privacy. Point out that, while it my not have been intended by management, some employees may use this as an opportunity to surprise tenants, especially women, who are not fully clothed in the privacy of their own home. Tell the landlord that you will call the police and consider it a breach of the...
Put curtains or some type of covering in the window. I am sure you are hesitant to call the police because of the fact that he is your landlord's boyfriend, but it may come to that if the conduct continues.

Tell him you would like to know when he intends to cut the lawn. If possible, try to have it at a time you can be home. Otherwise, make arrangements to pick up the mail on those days or even have it held at the post office for a day.

While my colleague in the above answer is undoubtedly right that the LL will not voluntarily return the deposit, I would encourage your sister not to walk away, but to sue the prospective LL in the magistrate's office. She should assert that the LL cannot enforce an oral agreement, nor can he keep a deposit when there is no subsequent written agreement. The legal term that applies here is called the "Statute of Frauds" and it applies to all real estate.
The new owners were leasing from month to month. When they moved out you had the right to take possession immediately. If there was any doubt, the matter was clarified when they handed you the key.
It appears that they abandoned everything left in the store after delivering the key. This stuff appears to have little value (except possibly the computer). Move the property off premises and give them 30 days to claim it, provided they pay a reasonable storage charge. Tell them that you...
No, you do not have to sin the lease as presented. However, it sounds like the LL will never give you a decent place to stay. Find a new place to live. This LL is not worth enduring through a new lease term. Talk to a lawyer about making a claim for damages, primarily soot marks on your furniture and the extra cost of heating after the inadequate heating system was installed. You were entitled to have adequate heating under the lease.
I am unclear whether the property is currently being foreclosed, as well as being subject to sale for delinquent taxes. The specific facts would be important. I am surprised that the bank did not accept your offer to pay off the mortgage (or even to bring it current) and I think you are right to be suspicious.
It would be unethical for a close relative of a bank insider to use confidential information to purchase a property in a foreclosure by the bank. If the property has substantial...
You should not plead guilty without the advice of counsel. If you must attend an arraignment or preliminary hearing before you are represented, plead not guilty. Defiant trespass sounds inappropriate for a retail store which is open to the public. There would have to be uniques facts to justify such a charge. Were you apprehended with the goods? What were the circumstances? Don't tell the world the answers to these questions. Tell a lawyer who undertakes to represent you.
