Q: So I was at my ex boyfriend house I woke up my car was stolen. I had just purchased the car my title was in my car

Theodore Allan Greene answered on Jun 17, 2019

Hopefully you had insurance. Since you had the title you must have paid cash. That usually means the "market value" of the car is less than you paid unless you had replacement insurance. The police may find it and hopefully not damaged too badly.

Q: I have a question my landlord lost the house he still wants us to pay him the rent . What can I do he's not the owner ?

Theodore Allan Greene answered on Jun 4, 2019

When you say he "lost the house" do you mean the bank foreclosed on him? If so then don't pay him. Wait for the bank to contact you most likely through a real estate agent. Unless someone bought the house through a foreclosure sale - then they should contact you. But if the owner/landlord still... Read more »

Q: MR. LIGHT WHAT IF I DIDNT HAVE INSURANCE ON MY CAR AT THAT TIME?

Theodore Allan Greene answered on May 18, 2019

The penalty for not having insurance is that you can only get your car fixed and your medical bills paid and possibly a wage loss claim. That is of course if the other party caused the accident. Now DMV might have some punishments for you and the police may issue a citation as well..
