Healthful living may soon be built into new communities
An Urban Land Institute report examines how urban design and development can contribute to living environments that help residents thrive.
A New York developer may be the first home builder to integrate wellness into its products. But if a major real estate education and research group has its way, healthful living will soon be incorporated in many of the places we live and work.
Is landlord retaliating for tenant's refusal to pay 'pet rent'?
A landlord won't renew a lease for a tenant who defied demands to pay an extra $50 a month in 'pet rent' for a service dog.
Question : I moved into a small fourplex a year ago with my service dog, a border collie named Harlan. I have a seizure disorder and Harlan alerts me when I am about to have a seizure. The apartment manager gave me no problems about my dog when I moved in, but she charged me an extra $50 a month in "pet rent." I later found out that she was not supposed to charge pet rent for a service animal because it is not really a pet under the fair housing laws.
Vote attributed to comatose board director isn't legal
When an association board director falls into a coma, another director at his bedside with a cellphone tells the board how he believes the comatose director wanted to vote.
Question: I'm a board director at my homeowners association. Last year we had an extremely important board meeting scheduled with an item that would have allowed the board to spend a lot of money we didn't have. Owners didn't want that money spent the way the board wanted to spend it. Just before the meeting when the vote was to take place, one of our key ally board directors — whose vote we desperately needed to defeat this massive spending spree — took ill and ended up in the emergency room. The board sent me to the hospital with a cellphone and instructions to not let him out of my sight. I sat right next to his bed with the cellphone. By the time of that call the ill director was in a coma. The board asked me how the ill director wanted to vote. I told the caller "Hold on. I'll ask him." Then I told the caller "He votes no." No one knows that he was actually comatose at the time of the vote. The board just took my word on it. After he got out of the coma, he said he agreed with how I voted. But I still wonder, was that vote legal?
