Q. Is It Illegal Not To Have Water From The City Regarding Adverse Possession And Is It By The Owner Or The Adverse Possess
A: The solution to your issue depends on your status as an occupier of the land. How did you enter the property? Are you a tenant with a lease? One without a lease? Did the owner invite you? Did you enter via trespass? What is your relation to the owner? How the water bill is titled is an administrative matter that usually derives from the name on the title, or a lease.
Q. If I put in an offer on a property for sale, how long do I have to wait before the current owner accepts or rejects it?
A: It is up to the offeror to put a time limit on the offer. A letter, now, giving a deadline or withdrawing the offer will work.
Q. Dear Sir/Madam, regarding to returning deposit to tenant + interest in Maryland
A: The commercial practice of the banking community is often out of step with what the Legislature has ordered by statute. The Maryland landlord must abide the written statute. Every once in awhile, the tenants catch a break.
