    Protect Rental Property Assets with an LLC
    Real Estate has always been considered a safe investment since the supply is finite and the demand grows with the population. Even though we have seen some swings in the real estate market over the past decade, the theory still is held true by many.

Neighbor repeatedly reporting us to City agencies... Is there any way to stop the harassment?

The older, single woman living in the house next door to us has been repeatedly reporting our house to various city agencies, complaining of rodents (rats, which live in HER yard), "trash" in our yard, building code violations. We have had our yard inspected repeatedly with no violations. Can she be reported for harassment?

    It'll run it course. The departments will see a pattern develop and stop responding to her. Contacting the Alderman's office as well as the main departments that are her favorites to explain your circumstance may expedite things toward some peace and quiet.

    I had to call out the Streets & Sans Supervisor for my neighborhood to put to bed once and for all that our fence on the alley wasn't a problem for traffic (since it was my neighbor's one and only pressing issue, apparently). As soon as he met me in the alley, he pointed to the house with the old lady in it who was causing the huff and said he remembered her from 15 years earlier when she was causing a condo development headaches and calling all the time. He gave me his direct number and said to call if I ever had an issue. They've never been back out since.

    Imagine having only one pair of shoes to wear year-round. Now imagine you're also homeless. In 2012, Justin Johnson had a chance encounter with a man who personally encountered this hardship. His toes had burst through the soles of his shoes, and they were his only pair.
