He could reject the lease and get out of it if he files bankruptcy. A mortgage and ownership vested in you is a much safer plan.
I am aware that the 2017 year leave of absence cost me the right to have a step increase. This was a decision I made willingly when I chose not to return to work that year. However in 2018 I did return to work and I was still denied a step increase they were two steps in two years and I didn’t... Read more »

You provide an interesting legal question and situation. To fully address the legal issue, you will probably need to hire an attorney licensed to practice in Connecticut. I wish you the best of luck in the resolution of your situation.

If you have a lawyer who has entered an appearance in the case, the court may not allow you to bypass them. An option is to fire the lawyer; however, if things go south again you may regret it.
The original one-year lease ended in 2012. I would like to keep my month-to-month tenancy. The proposed addendum does not include any language about timing/terms.
answered on May 30, 2019
In most states a "holdover tenant" is called a "tenant at sufferance"--which means you can be evicted at anytime--even without notice. However, if you are still paying your rent on a month=to-month basis, the law would probably allow you stay for at least 30 days from the date... Read more »

I'm a pastor. I've created some stuff for use in church, and now have people who want to buy it, but my church says they own it. Nothing in my contract specifies who owns the copyright to my work, which I thought meant it belongs to me since IP creators are presumed owners. Who's right?
answered on Jul 24, 2018
All depends on what your contract says, the nature of your creation, and other circumstances not clear from your question. So the short answer is, "it depends."
I signed a contract and I paid a deposit on May 1st. I was verbally told the work would be done by the end of May. I have not heard back from the contractor since (it is now mid June).

A charge off combined with the release of your second mortgage would have provided you the ability to avoid the payoff of the... Read more »

You can have an agreement with someone from out of state. You can pick any law you would like to avail yourself too. It is not necessarily bad to use CT law. Many national business agreements tend to be in NY or DE. It is also possible to change the state at a later date. For most people it comes... Read more »
