My mother has been living in a senior living apartment home as a tenant. Three days ago, she slipped on the floor in the bathroom and pulled her emergency cord that is supposed to directly ring the local fire department for emergency help. However, after she pulled the cord for 30 minutes, no help... Read more »
Contact an attorney. Do you have any evidence that the Landlord knew that the cord didn't work. They should have some policies in place to avoid such a situation. Like a weekly test of the system, etc..
Today, I received a letter from the HOA stating that i need to remove the signs now, as the election is over. Note: The election is not over yet until all states certify the election and/or legal action is completed and decisions are rendered in all states and electoral college. I believe this... Read more »
This is a common refrain one keeps hearing about local HOA, i.e. that they continue to interfere with our personal freedoms in some fashion or another. The present issue lies in the fact that you do not consider the election "over" yet. It is only a matter of semantics, because for all...Read more »

So this goes with the other question posted in probate. Apparently this check comes from an escrow on a refi and is a one time deal. Your other post said there was a joint account. Deposit the check there. The old lender is no longer involved once paid off and does not need any additional...Read more »
What is not clear from your post is who is the maker on the check? You provide so much extraneous information that is sounds like the check is coming from the trust that your father is the trustee on. But that makes no sense. IMO you should go to the maker of the check and request that the check...Read more »
It’s a common situation, but every bank and credit union and other financial institution has its own rules. My experience as an estate planning specialist with over 25 years in the field is to simply have your dad endorse the check on the reverse side as follows: “For deposit only”, and then...Read more »
I'm the son of the partner who is unable to speak. Her spouse is not making choices in her best interests and our family believes he is using his power for his benefit.

If the power of attorney is NOT durable then it was automatically revoked when your mother became incapacitated. If it is durable and your mother is no longer able to revoke it, then you would have to go to court to get a guardian and conservator appointee. The conservator would then be able to...Read more »

It isn't an easy procedure, you will need a Guardianship/Conservatorship/estate attorney. This will give the Court jurisdiction over the way father's social...Read more »
My father still has a small mortgage on the home. He already has a Will and Durable POA. He is interested in creating a mechanism such as a living trust by which his home and minivan can be transferred to me as his sole heir without the necessity of the property going through probate. His Will... Read more »
I'm a caregiver in an assisted living facility. Back in July 2020, one of the residents (in her 80's) mentioned about her vacant home and asked me if I wanted to lease it. I answered yes but told her my current lease ends November 30, 2020. She said her friend (her trust administrator)... Read more »
Because of your position as a caregiver, any transaction that you have with one of your charges will have, at least, an "appearance" of impropriety or overreaching by you. This is whether the transaction is in fact, disadvantageous to the charge or not. On the other hand, if you are...Read more »

Best wishes to your mom. Start with getting a letter from her M.D. stating that she has suffered a stroke, is suffering from COVID and cannot make decisions for herself. They probably want to cover their asses rather than cause you grief. I assume that you do not have a Health Care POA. You...Read more »

I believe she is isolating her and then leaving her alone just to cash her social security. She claims COVID-19, but this started before and my mother has been seen in... Read more »

IMO you need to file for a Conservatorship of your mom. You can search for an attorney that deals in Conservatorship/Guardianship on this...Read more »
Sorry for your loss. This is really not a "Family law" issue or "criminal law" issue unless your family member was a nurse or M.D. This may be an "Elder abuse" situation and it may be a "wrongful death" which is a category of personal injury actions. As his...Read more »

And now his arrogant, mean, hateful ex wife is doing all kinds of illegal things to me. Like changing all the locks to everything and only giving me 1 key to 1 door. And now they've completely locked me out of the garage where all of my electrical and carpentry tools and materials are located?... Read more »
Your "gentleman's agreement" is only worth the paper it is written on. However, your LL is not allowed to commit "Forcible Entry" under CCP 1159 or 'Forcible detainer" under CCP 1160. These things include changing locks to exclude you from real property that you...Read more »
