    You should review you situation with a local attorney, but you do not want to change locks if she can be construed as a tenant and has not abandoned the house as her residence. You would need to evict her if she is tenant. Also the state has specific requirements for dealing with left property property.

    This a complicated issues based on your particular circumstances, such as how units are being rented out. Also whether or not you rent through a government program such as section 8. If you have 4 or more units then FHA requirements kick in. ADA typically applies depending on whether or not you are accepting applicants through a government program. You should speak to an local attorney to review.

  • Do I have to pay contractor for building fence? What are my options? He will not raise the fence to level set it as I requested.

    I hired a licensed contractor to put up a fence. I paid him half in advance. Before I agreed to hire him, I reviewed his look book and viewed a fence he built. Everything looked great. My fence on the other hand, looks less than stellar. The 100...

    Withholding payment in the short term maybe appropriate if the workmanship is indeed in question. The Contractor may attach a lien in the short term, but one you pay him you lose your leverage. You should have another fencing contractor review the work as Ms. Johnson suggested. You can ask them how much it would cost to correct the work. You could at that point the original contractor his fee minus the new estimate to correct his work.

    The height of the fence is usually code mandated. The maximum height is measured from grade. If you lot does indeed slope, then your fence will have to step. You may have to cut the top of the fence measured from the low point of the lot.
