Questions About Home Dept

How can you get your neighbors to treat their home for roaches?

Someone just bought a condo but discovered a roach problem. After Terminex (sp) visited a few times the problem was still there and then it was figured that the whole building must be infested. (After a neighbor commented on how her roach problem wasnt so bad lately) Obviously one person can't pay to exterminate the building so could you report the situation to the health dept? She said there is no one to talk to as far as who runs/owns the complex and i suggested the health dept. Or is this the kind of thing they will just have to deal with? Most of the tenants are (i believe) owners and not just renters. This is in NC.

I've had contractors working on the home that I rent for almost the entire time I've lived there?

I've been renting a house for approximately a year and a half. During a majority of the time that I have lived in the home, there have been contractors here working most of time fixing major things that have broken in the home, three months after moving in, I had black soot coming into the house from a broken flume under the house. it was all over the walls curtains, in the refrigerator, the dishwasher, furniture, in my children's noses etc. it was repaired within a week. a few weeks later, the A/C ventilation had to be cleaned as well since it was full of soot as well. November 09 thru March 10, the basement garage would flood from all the rain and snow that we got. There was also oil from an old Old fuel tank that had been removed years ago that seeped into the garage walls from the ground and was now coming thru the walls in the garage. Drylox was used to coat and patch the walls in the garage and it lasted for about a month before they had to come back out due to it flooding ag

Home Made Dog Treats?

Home Made Dog Treats? Can anyone tell me what is required to sell home made dog treats in the State of NJ? I have called the USDA, they referred me to the County Health Dept, they referred me to NJ Dept of Agriculture, and I haven't heard back from NJDofA. Anyone? The treats will be made from regular ingredients found in any kitchen and will be made at my house. I am only going to sell at Craft Fairs and Dog Shows in the area. Also, if anyone knows anything about Craft Fairs/Dog Shows, what documents will they ask me for to set up a table? At this point, I don't have an EIN, and not sure I would need one. Any help from anyone who is familiar with this would be most appreciated...

What comic book characters would be a MUST include in a Home Theater room?

I am in the process of planning out my home theater room. My wife and I grew up with reading and watching the comics from the 70's and 80's. We want to create our home theater room based off of these characters. I have come up with some ideas: Making the front speakers into buildings and have one the Daily Planet and the other Gotham City Police Dept. with a spot light of the bat symbol. A bar made to look like Silver Surfers surf board. The rear speakers would be the back of the the X-men's X-Jet, the motors the speakers. For art work we were planning on paintings of superhero's, logos or even figurine boxes (as we have a few already). We just need some more ideas to incorporate into the room. What superheroes are a definite MUST have? I am very creative and handy with paint brushes and wood work so anything crafty would be great! Thank you in advance for any suggestions.

Help me find trout and a tank to set up at the Nursing home so their residents can go fishing!?

I can't find anything online about renting a tank or buying trout to stock the tank. I called the dept. of fish and wildlife, no help there. Anyone have any idea on how to make this happen for the Nursing home? We want to set up the tank in their parking lot and have a fish-fry. Most of the residents are in wheelchairs and can't go to a lake to go fishing, so we need to bring the fish to them. We are near Portland Oregon. Thanks!

Who is responsible for finding out if asbestos is present, a contractor of a project or a home owner?

My construction project was halted by the NYC Dept. of Environmental Protection after a neighbor complained about asbestos present. The contractor did not realize that asbestos was present and neither did the architect, who at one point certified that asbestos was absent. I as a homeowner did not know that asbestos was present and trusted the contractor or the architect to find out if the substance was present. Is the contractor responsible? He is the one who haphazardly modified the asbestos insulation of the house and did not even realize the asbestos was what it was. The project was ordered to be suspended by the NYC DEP and delayed the remodeling for a couple of weeks and costed me about $10,000 (including filing fees).

How many monthly payments do you have to miss before the mortgage lender attempts to Foreclose on a home?

The answer that was given was either misleading, uninformed or confused. The Mortgage Industury, which supports flipping of houses, has changed the law on the Federal level where they can take your home with one missed payment. I do not who this 'expert' is. I lived through it with National City Bank. I missed one (singular payment. Although their 'Loss Mitigation Dept' try to work with me, the repayment to get back on track was $1,000, next month $4000 and the next $9,000. In the meantime they hired a foreclosure attorney which sent me threatening letters, but years end, the so-called amount to right the loan was $64 thousand dollars. You see, in West Jordan Utah, house prices skyrocketed from $130K to $350K. National City bought the home back from themselves for $108K. I had short sale offers as high as $122K. Instead I filed bankruptcy to stop the foreclosure on automatic stay. The Fed Bankruptcy Court let the house go in May 2004 to the NCM, profteering.

What is the appropriate state legislative body for complaints against a nursing home in California?

I wish to find the state assembly, councilperson or subcommittee group or groups that handle problems with nursing home and their retaliation for making compliants against the nursing home for poor health care towards one's family members (besides Public Health Dept). I understand that counties have their own representatives; but, I would like to narrow it to the correct channels.
