Real estate misrepresentation on uor home we purchased april 2021. *our
JA: What steps have you taken so far? Have you prepared or filed any paperwork?
Customer: no
JA: Where is the property located?
Customer:*****Brockton PA 17925
JA: Is there anything else the Lawyer should know before I connect you? Rest assured that they'll be able to help you.
Customer: The bank/appraiser that works for our lending bank changed the square footage of our home to meet the asking price of the sellers. It is $36,000 over what the home is worth. We purchased on April 30th 2021 and I had it reappraised August 2021. It is a bilevel with a sunroom attached. The home is 1130 sq feet and they listed it on our appraisal as 1450. Our independent appraiser came back with 189,500 and the bank came in at 225,500. Both real estate agents pushed for the 225,000 sale when the seller was asking for 210,000. If the appraisal would have been correct 2 things could have happened, 1 we would have walked away or 2 the seller could have come down resulting in lower mortgage and not being tremendously upside down in our new home. I understand the seller could have stuck to the 225,000 that the agents pushed for but then we would have walked. We would not come up with the difference. Why are their laws in place for things like this but did not have to be followed. The comps were not comparable to our home at all and if the square footage does not matter why jump through all the hoops in the first place. The home buying process is backwards. Please let us know if anyone can help us. Mrs. Megan Kufro
We are fighting a housing development project in Reno, NV.
JA: Have you talked to a NV lawyer about this?
Customer: We are fighting a housing development in Reno, NV.. The project is an irresponsible project on a mountainous side hill taking deep cuts and fills in extremely rocky terrain. The parcel has been deemed a high radon area by the local university and will expose the current neighborhood to contamination which will be aerated during construction estimated to last three years. Also, there is an endangered plant species found in only a few locations in the world located in the canyon. The project is in complete opposition to sections of the city’s master plan and building codes. It was originally rejected but the city’s development agency but overturned by the city council on appeal. What can be done to stop this dangerous development?
JA: The Lawyer will be able to walk you through that. What steps have you taken so far?
Customer: thanks for ant help
JA: Is there anything else the Lawyer should know before I connect you? Rest assured that they'll be able to help you.
Customer: There is also a high possibility for water contamination due to the aggressive ground work proposed. The soil type is volcanic andesite rock and clay. There are large deposits of sulfur in the soil which, when exposed to air and moisture are converted to sulfuric acid. The canyon is considered an important watershed area for the Truckee River below which is our city’ main source for water. The city council has disregarded all of the negative impacts this development presents to residents.
I live in South Carolina, Lake Wylie. I'm the owner of a town home. I moved in to the townhome on December 23rd 2014. The current HOA was effective effective around August 2020. The HOA sent emails to owners advising removal of yard art. I have not been well and under a doctor's care this year. I was very sick in December 2021 and consequently did not read or see all of my emails I have several questions. One of my neighbors asked me if I got the email and that is how I found out about the HOA violations emails. Now I only have a few days make the remedy they are requesting are my email said I would be assessed $100 a day. As soon as my neighbor told me about the violation emails I went into my phone and found it and responded to it immediately explaining my health etc. Is there a regulation or law that requires HOAs to send out written communication communication through the USPS? The HOA has asked me to remove several concrete objects that I have had and brought with me when I moved in to the neighborhood on 12/23 2014. They are not unsightly and I asked an HOA board member when I was moving in if there would be a problem. I was told no by the board member. I have been here 7 years now and all at once, I am getting notice of violation. In my recent email to the HOA, I advise them of all situations as far as my illness affected my delay in answering their email and also requested a hearing because I do not consider my statues to be unsightly or in any way obstructing the maintenance of the lawn. Most of the homeowners only were advised to remove"yard art'. My questions are should a written letter have gone to homeowners advising that there were violations and explaining exactly what each person's violations were? Also, and what time should they respond to my written requests by email for a hearing on my violations that I feel are not valid? My name is********** Lake Wylie South Carolina 29710. My email address is***@******.***
JA: What steps have you taken so far? Have you prepared or filed any paperwork?
Customer: I sent an email on February 3rd 2022, explaining that I had just found out about the violations emails that they had sent through the HOA that same day. I stated that that was very important information and I didn't understand why a written correspondence had not been sent from the HOA to the homeowners via USPS. I also told him everything I have told you in this text message. That I asked about these concrete statues before I moved in and I have lived here for 7 years and it has never been a problem. I made it clear that I was requesting a hearing. The next day I got a message from someone in the architectural design for the HOA saying that they were trying to clarify with the HOA what yard art meant. They never mentioned my request for a hearing or my disagreement about the validity of the violation
JA: Have you talked to a lawyer about this?
Customer: . No I haven't. I am hoping that you could help me
JA: Is there anything else the Lawyer should know before I connect you? Rest assured that they'll be able to help you.
Customer: Yes, most of the homeowners living in Harper's Green townhomes were never given copies of the CCRS . Also. Currently we only have three HOA board members and there should be six. They have not been able to fill the other three positions. So we really do not have Fair representation for the homeowners and I would hope there is some kind of law about that.
I am a homeowner in the HOA Summer Place in Clearfield, UT. The HOA has requested I make some landscaping drainage repairs in my yard with which I agree. But their letter has unreasonable deadlines and they are requesting a release of liability. I need legal advice, letters to the HOA about these and probably other future issues. I see no reason why this issue cannot be settled amicably. I am having trouble finding a lawyer. What type of legal practice should I be searching for? I have searched under Real Estate Law and HOA Law (which gets me the lawyers who represent the HOAs so they don't want me as a client). I am not considered a desirable client as having the HOA as a client is more profitable although I am not without funds. What kind of lawyer can help me?
JA: What steps have you taken so far? Have you prepared or filed any paperwork?
Customer: The drainage problem has created ice on an HOA sidewalk. The HOA wants me to sign a waiver of liability for the ice on the sidewalk which comes from the drainage of the ground water. I have not signed this and don't think it is advisable to do so. I have lived here 4 years. The HOA is 28 years old. This problem has existed for 28 years. The HOA is just now taking action due to a request from their insurance company. I actually understand their position. I am willing to rectify this issue, but there is no simple solution. They stipulate a waiver of liability, plan submission deadlines and resolution deadlines. I need these deadlines extended. I have increased my personal liability insurance to $1M.
JA: Have you talked to a UT lawyer about this?
Customer: I have been unable to find one. Have reached out to 20 of them at this time.
JA: Is there anything else the Lawyer should know before I connect you? Rest assured that they'll be able to help you.
Customer: The HOA wants the waiver of liability tomorrow. They want submission of plans to them by March 15, 2022 and completion of project by May 14, 2022. I need advice about waiver of liability asap. Ice issue is moot as April - October in Utah is above freezing. In light of this, need extension of plan submission and completion dates extended. Labor shortage is exacerbating this situation. I don't want to respond to them personally as their initial contact with me about this problem was through their lawyer. I feel we need lawyer to lawyer communication. Until recently I was on the board, I know how they work.
