Q. We live in an apartment complex. Our hot water has not been working since a week before Easter can we sue
A: Ohio Revised Code Section 5321.07 states that you should give written notice to your landlord at the place you normally pay rent. Given the severity of the issue you should ask that the matter be resolved in 7 to 10 days. If the landlord refuses to fix the condition, and you are current with your rent you can place your rent in an escrow account in the local municipal court, you can apply to the Court for an order instructing the Landlord to correct the issue, or you can terminate the rental agreement.
Q. Who is responsible for retention pond?
A: Your declarations and by-laws will most likely address the issue of the retention pond. Most likely it is characterized as part of the common area. Your annual assessment should be based upon anticipated expenses and maintenance of the retention pond if defined as a common area would be included the expected expenses. However, the anticipated expense would most likely only address routine maintenance such as mowing around the area. If the retention pond is failing or has a more serious issue, then it may not fall within anticipated expenses. There should be a line item in the annual budget that allows for a reserve fund to be built up to take care of larger expenses. If there is insufficient funds in the built up reserve fund, then the members of the association may see a special assessment to address the retention pond.
Q. Property lien purchased for 532.00.
A: Tax lien expires in 15 years. Interest rate negotiated on the tax certificate was probably 18%. In 15 years with interest the lien will be approximately $2100.00 and they will require you to pay Court costs and attorney fees to avoid the property going to Sheriff's Sale. It is not something you should ignore. Tax Certificates are purchased as investments.
