They Couldn’t Turn the A/C to 68 at Their Swanky Hamptons Rental. Now They’re Suing.
A Manhattan attorney and his dentist friend have filed a lawsuit in New York State Supreme Court, arguing that their summer vacation was ruined when the owners of their $10,000 Hamptons rental prevented them from lowering the air conditioner by two degrees.

We start with the good news of day for parents who use child care. Since Tuesday, families who have employed a nanny or have used a service provider to take care of their child (s) of more than six years can benefit from the immediate advance of their tax credit. It allows you to obtain a reimbursement by the State of 50% of the sums undertaken, within the limit of 12,000 euros.

For parents of children under the age of 6, still a little patience, the mechanism will only be activated from 2024.

Heavier repairs, linked to aging or a case of force majeure, on the other hand, will be intended for the owner. To see more clearly, Capital indicates the repairs incumbent on the tenant and those incumbent on the owner.
