Five siblings own five acres and a two story farmhouse in northeast Ohio and four of the family members no longer to rent the property but they want to sell. Can this property be sold if one family member refuses to sell? Can the four members still sell it all and give the disagreeable member their... Read more »
Yes. Since more than one owner wants to sell, there will be a judicial partition action to force the fifth to sell or buy out the other four. You should contact an attorney to see how to go about this.
I took him to vet within 48 and he has a double yeast ear infection and intestinal parasites. I asked the seller to refund the vet fees and they said the contract says I'm responsible for vet fees. So then I asked to return the puppy for a full refund and they stated they will take the puppy... Read more »
You would likely need to hire a private investigator to track down the person. The private investigator should also discover if the person and/or company you need to sue is collectible, because if you win a judgment but the defendant has no money, then you would have thrown good money after bad....Read more »
In Cleveland they recently made it known (through a flyer attached to my ticket) that I can plead guilty and not get any points as opposed to pleading no contest and getting points on my license. It was for not making a complete stop at a stop sign.
It sounds like they are offering you to plead to a lesser offense, such as a non-moving violation. If you receive enough points, your license may be suspended and your insurance rates may go up, or you may be dropped by your carrier. You should speak to an attorney about your specific case, but I...Read more »
I am writing a book where I would like to include interviews and stories from participants. I have a consent form written that clearly states that participants will not receive any type of compensation for their participation. If they sign this form (therefore agreeing to the terms in it,) would... Read more »
You are asking two questions here. One is can they sue, and the other is will they win? A consent will not stop somebody from suing, and you would need to prove that they signed the consent to use the affirmative defense. If you are worried about it I would make it clear in a recorded interview to...Read more »
There are very specific privacy laws surrounding this. Talk with an employment attorney. Also, background checks are not free, so it is a good sign that they are requesting it, but I have only heard of background checks requested after a conditional offer is made and accepted. Talk to an employment...Read more »
It sounds like it will appraise no problem, so that should not be an issue. Your niece's loan officer will want an appraisal for the mortgage company, but they should handle the closing/title insurance/tax escrow, etc. The loan officer will not talk to you, so ask your niece if anything else...Read more »
You should contact the police to fill out a report and likely a civil protection order to keep the person away. Talk with an attorney to file a temporary restraining order against the person. The first thing is to stop the threat immediately, then worry about a civil suit at a later time.
You should look to get your record sealed. Technically expunging a record does not exist in Ohio, but you could likely seal it. The problem you have is the crime is inherently violent, and you likely will not qualify for a firearms purchase until the record is sealed. You can speak with an...Read more »
My fiances work had a covid exposure so everyone had to get tested. They made them return to work without seeing the results and more employees tested positive thus resulting in further exposure. Is this something that can be taken to court for those who test positive because the employer did not... Read more »
First, your fiance would need to test positive for COVID, or another employee would want to sue. In every lawsuit, you must prove the four following things: duty, breach, causation, and injury. Your fiance's employer has a duty to provide him with a safe workplace. The question will become if...Read more »
You can ask her again, and if she refuses, then file a police report for theft. If the possessions are yours, and not owned jointly by you and her, then she should give them back. After filing the report, depending on the value of the items, you may need to file suit for conversion in either the...Read more »
If you can prove that the other party knew they had the STD and failed to disclose, then you could have an action for assault and/or battery. If they intended to give you an STI, then I would talk to a criminal attorney about possibly filing a police report, however, Ohio statutes only seem to...Read more »
I contacted this accountant to have my sales tax set up for when I started making sales. He quoted me a price of $50.00 which I agreed to. We were emailing back and forth and I was asking him questions which he did not fully answer. A few days later I received a bill for $490 dollars. I was in... Read more »
Do you have an engagement agreement with the accountant? If so, then the services and rates should be in it. If not, then it will be harder for the accountant to collect, although I would attempt to work it out with the accountant first, explaining everything you have written here, and an offer to...Read more »
Many states will share information like this. So, I hate to say it, but it depends. The real question is will the state where the warrant was issued want to pay to extradite? That will depend on the alleged crime committed.
My landlord gave us a house that had dirty carpets, dirty walls, drywall damage etc. Additionally, he would not fix appliances for months. Recently, when reading my lease, I found out that my landlord was in breach. From the time we moved in until about a year ago, the landlord had not paid HOA... Read more »
If the landlord was the one who was in breach, then yes, the landlord is liable until the house was sold, at which point the new landlord is liable. The question is, what are you trying to do? Do you want the house fixed? Do you still live there? There are many questions, but from your...Read more »
