Owner, contractor, and HOA insurance all notified but each claim the other shares liability. What are my rights as a third-party claimant? My own insurance does not fully cover the loss. Someone else is responsible. I don't want to start reconstruction until I have money to reconstruct.
Not sure what your theory is against the HOA - if there is one, they can be included in a lawsuit. Otherwise, you can sue the upstairs neighbor (and their contractor since you've already uncovered who they are). The insurance companies have a duty to try and settle a loss after liability has...Read more »
Homeowners Insurance company is asking for a lot. They want me to create a spreadsheet of thousands of items, describe each of them, document their age and put a value on it.

I was hit by another driver. The dealership will only honor my lease if it is repaired there. The other driver's insurance is saying they will only pay for aftermarket parts, and not the new ones the dealership will use. Can I sue them for the difference?

If the other driver's insurance won't pay, sue in Small Claims court. You cannot be forced to purchase aftermarket parts, regardless of its policy...Read more »
