Q: Is it legal for a storage company to auction my unit with my motorcycle in it?

I have the title to my motorcycle, but a storage facility sold it along with the contents of my storage unit for non-payment. Do I still legally own my motorcycle because I still have the title? How can they sell it without a title?

Q: Can my roommate put a camera in the living room without my consent?(WY)

My two other roommates and I both signed lease contracts. Another roommate agreed to the installation of the camera. I didn't sign anything and couldn't see the footage or manage the cameras. This camera has both audio and video capabilities, I'm not sure when it will be turned on.

Unless the other owner has died you are going to have a difficult time "removing his name off the title" because they still own it with you. Hire a lawyer to advise you.
