We live in Staten Island, zip code 10309. We are the only residents to receive a ticket for our fence being too high. Interesting enough, everyone has a tall fence. We don't want to modify it and feel it is unfair to have to shorten our fence. The...
The fact that the neighbors did not receive tickets may be due to their fences being grandfathered, as you would like yours to be. Generally speaking, fences can be a maximum of 4 feet high but fences built before April 30, 2008, can be up to 6 feet high. Did you obtain a new survey when you closed or did you obtain a prior survey from your seller? Maybe an older survey would show the height being greater than 4 feet prior to 2008. Maybe ask your seller for a copy of his survey even if you had obtained a new one.See question
I recently moved into a home in September so I did not realize the heat would be this much of an issue. The windows in this home are very cheap and poorly installed so they did not close all the way and the home is very poorly insulated in general...
You have received 3 good answers but none have addressed - not have you mentioned - whether your landlord is even aware of the issue. You need to first complain to the landlord and give him an opportunity to cure the issue before any of the other "remedies" will apply. Also, do you actually have thermometer readings or are you guessing at the temperature? I would take photos of the thermometers if I were you.

Unfortunately, this sounds like your mistake and the JFK personnel who may not have noticed are not liable for your error that got past them.See question
I'm 2 months behind in my tent and the landlords wants payment by Friday my husband is disabled and is waiting on his workers comp settlement which should come in 6 weeks
No, the kind of self-help you are describing is illegal. There's a legal process the landlord must adhere to. If you cannot afford an attorney, your local bar association (Rockland County) has a website with info and a referral program that may be useful. http://www.rocklandbar.org/
So my ex boyfriend posted a picture of me giving him head on social media and tag me in it along with my address and telephone number. Is this illegal ?
Have you contacted the social media site and reported it? Have you called the police?See question
I was supposed to go to greece and got detained at france for using the wrong passport.
I'd say it depends. What do you mean by "wrong" passport? Was it someone else's or expired? I'm not sure that the answer is different than what the other attorneys have provided, but I'm curious to hear more details before saying...See question
We have lived in this house for 8 years. We do everything from fixing the leaky roof, to the leak in our basement which was costly because of mold. My name is on the water bill. We pay all the utilities. The only thing we don't pay is the taxes. O...
You have received some correct answers already but I wanted to offer a practical suggestion. Let your landlord know you're serious and find out who his attorney is. Have your attorney speak to her. Hopefully, she's reasonable and will allow the c ontract to either be drafted to allow for an appraisal contingency (so that the value you arrived at with your CMA would probably be used) or at least to confirm the mortgage contingency has to permit the lender's appraisal to control. (You probably won't get a mortgage anyway if the sales price is substantially higher than the contract price). Maybe once your landlord speaks to his attorney and gets a taste of reality, he'll listen to reason - or else when he sees it appraised for less than he anticipates, maybe he'll understand.
Good luck.See question
The mobile home sits in a park .. so we don't own the property but lot rent is paid..
Presumably, you're asking whether you can be evicted and made to move your mobile home from the park? Depends on your lease, if any.See question

The current tenants that are occupying my rental property have ended their relationship. There are 8 months left on the lease. One of the tenants would like to continue living in the rental but would like his former girlfriend's name removed. H...
This is their problem, not yours. It is not in your best interest to help remove one of the two parties to your lease, since your ability to sue both is better than the ability to sue one. If they are current with the rent and you have no concerns, you can release her and/or enter into a new lease, but keep in mind she may have a claim to half the security, as well. Good luck.See question
