There is not enough information in your request for me to give you a decent answer to your question. I don't know what Court you are in, or in which County the case is pending; I don't know who the "tenant-in-common" is that you refer to. Is it your mother or someone else? And why is the...Read more »
Since you pay rent to share two rooms in the landlord's house, you are on a month to month tenancy. If your landlord wants to evict you, he would have to give you 30 day's notice. A Lodger is more like being a Hotel Guest, where you pay for a certain number of days, and when those days are up you...Read more »

Your question is too complicated to answer without seeing all the documents and facts involved. I suggest you contact a local attorney near you for advice. Boundary disputes are often very expensive, and the outcome usually depends on the documents. Good Luck.
Attorney appointed by insurance co. This matter has always involved real estate. I was abandoned by this attorney two years ago, but my husband continued to try to resolve this. It's not going to happen. We have lost a strong six figure amount of provable money out of our pockets. Please advise.
I can't tell with the short facts that you have stated, but it sounds like your attorney may not have been competent, especially if he only recently stated that you should see a real estate attorney. I wonder if the attorney had a real estate license of broker's license. At any rate, I can't...Read more »
Landlord used a tractor to dump televisions onto lawn and breaking glass everywhere then told us to clean it up in 60 days or else. Tractor forcefully shoving me out of the way. 4 or 5 park workers aggressively threw televisions on mom's lawn.
This doesn't sound like something they should be doing. Did you have any other witnesses? Did they give any kind of explanation at all? Very strand behavior. You should consider consulting with a local attorney to see what options you might have.

If you don't know how to 'terminate' the tenancy, you should contact a local landlord/tenant lawyer to make...Read more »

Keep the ball. If the neighbor causes damage with the ball, then you can hold the neighbor responsible for whatever damage she caused. If the situation escalates, you can always call the police and make a complaint against your neighbor. You could even go to court and file a claim of harassment...Read more »

The remaining 15' is too dangerous for me to maintain. City is going to fine me if I don't clear it out. Is that legal to put me in harms way to clear vegetation on city property? Live in Riverside CA.
An unauthorized trespass on another person’s property is called an encroachment. First, one must confirm that the area of land in dispute is in fact owned by your mother. This can be done by hiring a professional surveyor to survey the land to confirm the property boundaries.
