Go see them and negotiate a change in your lease to upgrade your apartment or get a reduction. If they won't do it, sue in small claims for the difference over the term of the lease or see a local Tenant's rights attorney.

If they didn't give you a ticket, then it is very likely that you don't have a case. You can check the courts online periodically to verify for up to one year.

Q: Does an easement appurtenant ends when the servient estate obtains title to the Dominant estate?

Or in order for the merger doctrine to be applicable the dominant estate must obtain title to the servient estate?

John Robert Skrabanek
John Robert Skrabanek answered on Aug 2, 2020

Title is taken by an individual or entity, not the land. If the same owner takes title to both the dominant and servient estates, then the easement is extinguished through the "merger" of the estates. I hope this helps answer your question.

You need to speak with an attorney in detail about your situation. Any bought prior to the marriage is pre-marital property. If the house is purchased after the wedding, it is marital property, regardless of whose name it's titled in.

Unless you get the other Tenant In Common to buy your 1/2 Undivided Interest, you will probably need to file an Action for a Sale By Partition. Hire a competent attorney that litigates real property.

Performing any activity within the United States that can be construed as unauthorized employment can jeopardize and, in fact, violate your F-1 student visa. I recommend that you exercise extreme caution in proceeding with your plans to start and operate a business venture while on the F-1 status.

Whoever is the estate fiduciary can file the return. The refund, if any, goes to the estate. The first $50,000 of any estate (unless there is a will) goes to the spouse. Thus, you need to determine if there is anything in it for you, if an estate is worth commencing, and if a return should be... Read more »
