I don’t have possession of the puppy and yet I am left with the bill. I didn’t have anywhere to go with the pup at first so I said he could take care of her. Is there anyway I can get out of a contract if I don’t have the dog ? Also, since I am the owner (says the vet) do I have rights to... Read more »
You can file a small claims action for either the vet bill or the dog. You can also plead in the alternative for either. For example, your requested relief from the court can be either he turns over the dog, or he pays the vet bills.
Do we have any recourse? Does the owner, the home inspector or real estate agent have any liability? The plumber is telling us this was a covered up issue from his findings. The repairs are going to cost us a lot of money. Help!

The actual time period is 60 days. The statutory default for a month-to-month lease is 30 days. However, you say your lease states 60 notice or it automatically renews. The contract provision will prevail unless you contact your landlord about accepting the 45-day notice.
My neighbors leave their dog outside in a small fenced in area 24/7. I never see it out. There is a dog house but it doesn’t have a flap and I don’t think it has any straw. It stays out there even when temperatures drop below 30 degrees. Is this even legal? It’s heartbreaking.
