Hi, my lousy tenant vacated at the end of the lease term and I switched my property management company due to the bad experience with the previous one. The previous property management company has colluded with the tenant and wants to favor the tenant. My property repair work hasn't been done... Read more »
The only way to bring a complaint against the property management company is to file a lawsuit in Court. I am unaware of anything that is done in your situation by HUD or NARPM. If you file a lawsuit in Virginia, you are subject to appearing in court to prosecute your case. There are no remote...Read more »

My sister took my wedding photos for free as a “gift”, but since then has decided she’s not going to give them to me. She won’t talk to anyone or listen to anyone who asks her for the photos. Many family members have offered to pay to see the photos but she refuses. We were married in a... Read more »
Unfortunately, no. The law does not provide for any way to enforce unkept promises unless there was an agreement and unless both sides received consideration. I suggest you try to compromise and at least pay the photographer something--because the photos are hers.

You have equal rights to the leased property without a court order based on domestic violence. Either move and notify to our landlord in writing that he has a dog and is violent, or file a protective order.
Generally, a Court Order must be complied with unless (A) you get the Court to vacate of modify the Order, or (B) the Order itself contains conditions that would permit you to stop paying (and I'm guessing it doesn't). So hire a lawyer who is in Puerto Rico or a Florida lawyer who is a member of...Read more »

I was assaulted by the guards producing bodily injuries. And because I blow the whistle there was abuse of my due process and there was a malicious prosecution under color of law and on 5-9-19 my case was dismissed. Can I sue the County
You can sue the guards for assault and battery if the charges against you were dismissed. The time within which to do so is short, so you should contact a lawyer with experience in civil rights cases to guide you through the process. You could also sue the county which employed the deputies. A good...Read more »

You were prepared to go ahead with your end of the deal and she wasn't. You are correct. However often there is something else left out. Does she now say the cage wasn't part of it? If so there is no agreement--you think it's A she thinks it's not A but B ---and if no agreement she should give you...Read more »
My husband and I checked in on 8/30/2018. We have been here continuously, since. I have receipts to prove this. With that TCA, does the police not have to enforce the law as stated, even though it is civil? This hotel also turned our power off, and I know this is illegal as well, so I flagged a... Read more »
You are incorrect. The Police enforce criminal law violations. It is up to the citizen or the civil authorities to enforce common law, statutes and equitable principles in the Courts of our State. You may have a cause of action to sue for damages or to enjoin what you believe are illegal...Read more »

Do you have an expert to testify? If not you are correct that you didn't sign the contract, but then your girlfriend is on the hook--bottom line, you don't need a contract if you ask them to care for the dog and they do, and it's commercial and you know there's a charge.

If I understand your question correctly, I think you misunderstand the difference between your LICENSE and the vehicle REGISTRATION. these two things are not the same.

Yes, the attorney can obtain a writ of eviction. Your appeal was dismissed, and so the judgment issued in January remains valid. The original date to obtain a writ of eviction is simply a waiting period; in other words, the landlord must wait until that date to obtain a writ of eviction, but he or...Read more »
