Someone had been watching our dog as we looked for a place to live. Among other things, the pandemic prolonged the time it took to do so (4 months). Right before we were to contact the guy to get our dog, he randomly texted and said he killed the dog and threw him in the fire. Devistated, we... Read more »
Unfortunately, it is not as easy as merely requesting a civil standby. I have not filed a case like this personally, but I believe you should be able to file a case in justice court instead of at the superior court level since all you are seeking is possession of the property (dog). The fees will...Read more »

If your mechanic ordered the engine from a dealership and it is stolen at the dealership while in their custody, the loss is taken by the dealership and they would need to order a new engine. The allegations by your mechanic just don't sound right. If he purchased an engine, he must have a...Read more »

Generally, in landlord/tenant cases, you sue the landlord (or property owner) - not the property management company or property manager.

Insurance generally runs with the property, so the relevant policy would be the one for the neighbor, not the one carried by your grandfather. The terms of the policy would govern coverage. The neighbors could put in a claim through their carrier. If it is accepted and covered, there could be a...Read more »

If he still does not return your money, you could file a small claims court action to recover your money. You will need to make sure you have documents which prove you handed...Read more »

There is no waiting period for the use of a small estate affidavit. Access can be given immediately unless the contract signed with this business provides otherwise. I would demand immediate access unless they have something in writing and signed giving them the right to delay.
Old ins. co. called said they are going to serve me to extend the case past 2 yrs statute of limitations in 1st wk of April 18'. The $1k settlement did not cover all my expenses. I have moved on though. They were taken away in an ambulance but walked to it.
You say you settled. You say there are fees. If the fees were for a lawyer, ask the lawyer what to do. If you are sued your insurance company needs to know and be involved. They will have a lawyer represent you.
You may have a good claim. Generally, a business is not responsible for the criminal conduct of a third party. But where a business has notice of prior thefts and does not take reasonable steps to secure its premises for the protection of its customers, there can be liability for a...Read more »
