What rights would I have as a homeowner as there is no quality of life where I live any longer? I pay my maintenance on time and yet have no rights, or so it seems. Is there any type of legal action that I could take that would not be too expensive for me? Unfortunately, moving is not an option as I would lose money on my townhouse.
