We’ve found a decent flat in Rotherhithe, London. We’ve made an offer Monday. Owner has accepted. Yay? Suddenly we’re getting ice cold feet. Are we doing the right thing?

My brother rents a property in Virginia and after a storm four months ago, a massive tree was struck by lightning and fell and is now blocking their driveway. They are still able to drive through the yard to get to the house but the landlord has been dragging his feet to remedy this situation. What can he do? [more inside]

What should I do about a (possible) problem renter who isn't paying on time and putting off late fees he owes me?
I'm renting out my condo and have been have been having a problem with getting the renter to pay on time. (This is the first time I've rented out to him the place.) He's always paid the rent portion in full, but he owes me $150 in late fees and has put it off, I want to snuff this out quickly and not make this a chronic problem. I moved out state about a month ago but explained to the renter that the check had to be postmarked on the first of every month to be mailed to me. I still have a bunch of local friends acting as 'property managers' who can go and break kneecaps if necessary. [more inside]
