Everything else, including a house, first goes to the spouse of the decedent, if all of the decedent's children were...Read more »
I was promoted to a manager position in September. This was to come with a $.50 increase in my wage. I've just noticed today on a pay slip that my wage had not changed at all. After looking over this, my GM raised my wage to the appropriate amount but refuses to back pay as she does not have in... Read more »
You can take them to small claims court. It will cost at least $100 to file the claim. You will need to show proof of when you were made a manager and started doing work that managers do. You will want to weigh the effects of suing your own company with the benefit of obtaining the unpaid $300....Read more »

I am sorry to hear of your father's passing. My condolences. You mentioned your father lived in Oregon and purchased a house there. Unless your father owned property in Utah, then you are going to be dealing with Estate and Probate law in Oregon. Each state can have very different laws regarding...Read more »
The answer depends on how your father and uncle owned the property together. If the deed says they are "joint tenants" then your father will receive sole ownership of the property. That would only require a simple document recorded with the county with a copy of the death certificate.
It depends on a few things. Who are listed on county records as the owner of the home. Sometimes this may surprise you. If she signed and recorded a deed placing her property in a joint tenancy with someone else, that person now owns the property.
The owner paid to have someone fix the a/c and got it working in all units but mine. I am currently on a month to month plan because I am over on my lease. With that they charge additional rent plus a $100 month to month fee. I have told them many times that the a/c still isn't working in my... Read more »
You are free to negotiate your rental costs on future months, but your choice to stay is your acceptance of any past agreements that will cover the current month. If the landlord fails to provide a service that was previously agreed to, (perhaps AC has been part of the lease?) then you have an...Read more »
What type of document would I use for an agreement with a supplier of a product that has agreed to discount the sale price of their product to us in exchange for us optimizing their product listings on Amazon and working to boost overall sales of the product on the Amazon platform?
I would need more details before I named your contract. It sounds like you need a simple contract. This would state who the parties are, what services and products would be exchanged, and how long the agreement would last. Depending on how formal you want the agreement to be, more issues and...Read more »
Our joint fence was completely removed, and they have embarked on a 5 week process to construct a retaining wall and new fence. We were given no written plan or written notice. They have excavated on our property, and they are trying to get us to pay part of their project.
If both landowners paid to install a fence directly on a property line in the past, then yes, they need your permission to remove or replace the fence. Many fences are not built on a property line, but are instead just on one property or the other.
As it has been five weeks since you posted, I suspect you have already been forced to make a decision. In case this issue comes up again, most of your relationship with the mortgage company is controlled by contract. Many lenders will agree to waive mortgage insurance if your equity exceeds a...Read more »
Since 10 days have already passed, I assume you are already out of the property, unless you retained an attorney that was able to help you work something out with the city. In regards to paying rent and getting a refund from the landlord, any rent paid in advance for days you aren't allowed to live...Read more »
You stated, "the trustor had specific burial wishes". If those wishes were stated in the Trust, they must be followed. Even "settling the affairs of the estate" could reasonably be inferred to include the costs of burial. If the Trustor had specific wishes that were not stated in the Trust,...Read more »
