I had an accepted purchase offer on a home I am buying. The home was advertised with a lifetime warranty on a metal roof. Prior to closing, I found out there was no permit on file for the new roof and the roof warranty was not a lifetime. The owner is not able to provide receipts for the roof in... Read more »
The fact that you closed on the property even knowing that the property did not have 50 years left on the roof, will be used against you as an "affirmative defense," if you sue to get out of the contract. You may have a breach of contract claim, if you can show that the 50 yr warranty...Read more »
My sheepdog trainer owned a LGD that wandered onto his neighbor's property presumably chasing a coyote. The neighbor shot the LGD intentionally and buried it (he's threatened to do so in the past), then notified the owner. I was under the impression LGDs were protected since they are... Read more »
The VERY WORST thing an employer can do these days, is to draft up an "Employee Handbook." Idaho passed a law, rejecting unions, and making all work "at will." "AT WILL" is the worst thing that ever happened to workers in Idaho, because employers can literally fire...Read more »
Every contract for the sale of a car, includes "small print" provisions. If you carefully read all of the "fine print" provisions of the "extended warranty" addendum to the contract, it SHOULD say somewhere that after four months, the company may raise the payment to...Read more »
I would go to the county courthouse and ask where the Recorder's office is. Once there, i would give them either an address or description of the property and ask to see all of the recorded documents on that piece of land. That will give you a complete look at the property's history, show...Read more »

Well the landlord saw and re received a message saying the ping pong table needed to be removed as it can damage walls and... Read more »
Your daughter is too young to have sex with a 21 year old man, period. IF the father permits them to live together, as "house mates," no foul. If the father allows them to sleep in the same bed, that is illegal and NO the girlfriend has NO liability, because she has NO rights to your...Read more »
When I was 18 I got a petit theft charge. I got a withheld judgement and then got it dismissed. I’ve recently decided to go back to school to become a teacher. I know that petit theft is a form of moral turpitude. Is that going to cause me issues once I try to get certified and obtain a teaching... Read more »
Yes, these two documents, Civil Protection Orders sometime continue through the divorce proceeding. However, the Civil Protection Order is a "stand alone document," and doesn't need a divorce proceeding to survive. The statute says that after the first continuance of the CPO, you...Read more »
his PD attorney in person and they are talking about having him plead a deal. I am concerned he is not being properly represented. My question is, should he get his own attorney? Funds are very limited.
down plus put additional funds from my parents into property to make it livable. Husband signed quit deed to me a closing via title company. He is in prison now. I filed for divorce, he wants half of the equity in house as community property.
Idaho is one of 9 states which have "community property laws." This means that from the date of marriage until divorce or death, everything purchased, from cars to houses, belong equally to both husband and wife. Of course, parties often attempt to "over rule" those laws, as...Read more »
An Idaho attorney could advise best, but your post remains open for two weeks. It's usually not a problem in most settings. You included personal injury as a category. If that means the question is related to personal injury litigation, you could specify which address is to be used for process...Read more »
