Q. We brought a Shea home in 2015 we had a flood from upstairs just recently and were told the pipes are brittle and need
A: I recommend that you speak with a real estate attorney. From the information you provided, you may have recourse under Arizona's Dwelling Action law, ARS 12-1361, et.seq. The statute of limitations concerning such a claim can be up to 8 years from the substantial completion of the dwelling.
Q. Can a land lord lock you out without getting a court order?
A: A commercial landlord can lock out a tenant without first obtaining a court order. This option is often specifically reserved in many commercial leases. It is also one of the remedies allowed by ARS 33-361.
Q. The Board of Directors in my homeowner's association has only Board members from the builder.
A: The answers to many of your questions should be in your Community's recorded Covenants, Conditions and Restrictions (CC&Rs). You should have been provided a copy by your title company when you purchased. If not, they can be obtained online from the County Recorder's office. The recording information should have been provided by your title company in the condition of title report. If you still have questions that are not answered by the CC&Rs, I recommend consulting with a real estate attorney. Once your attorney knows all the facts and has access to the CC&Rs, he our she will be able to answer your questions and advise you.
