The president and other board members of my home association conjured to propose penalties against me. They are prejudicially and selectively isolating and discriminating against me based on my race, creed, and national origin. They conspired to create and to apply fictitious rules and false...

I am closing in the sale of my home. I work at the town office in the assessing department and so I am familiar with glitches that can happen with open permits etc. I am selling a Victorian home built in 1890 which has an unheated attic with sheetrocked walls and newer windows. The attic was this... Read more »
I have not seen your contract or listing. There is likely nothing wrong with an attic with no windows if it is not a living space. If the contract or listing represented that it was a living space, that is your problem. It is not the house that is in violation. It is the way you are using it...Read more »
My attic has sheet rock but is unheated. my town building department is calling it a "violation" because it has no "egress window" we are at the zero hour of closing the sale of the house and are being held up by this violation. I have been told unheated space cannot be called... Read more »
Unheated space cannot be living space. The issue is the fault of your lawyer when you bought the house, your broker who listed it now as a "living space", and your lawyer who allowed this issue to fester until closing. While it is sometimes reasonable to overlook these issues at a...Read more »
We live in a corner lot, and we would like to build a 6 foot fence on the property perimeter. We'd like to know how far can we take the fence to the line property, and if we can consider one of the "fronts" of a corner property as a "side". Only the "main"... Read more »
Sub-contractor gave a verbal price which I agreed too but told him to send me a written estimate. He went ahead and did the job without sending a written estimate. The invoice he sent is way more. I refused to pay and now he has an attorney threating a lien against the homeowner and lawsuit... Read more »
After 2 different reschedules, no show no call on the third reschedule. I had to track down information and I find out the owner was closing business financial problems this was on August 30. I have yet not received any paperwork from a lawyer stating he has filed bankruptcy. I went and file... Read more »
There is no time limit on filing bankruptcy. He could wait years to do it, if he ever even files. There is, however, a time limit on you filing a civil suit against him for breach of contract and fraud. If you were to sue him in the county where the work was performed you would have to file the...Read more »
This is not a criminal law case. It appears that if there is an inheritance and you are the administrator of the estate…you are the one that controls the distribution and management of the assets. How is your daughter keeping you from doing what you need to?
More information to properly answer this question is needed and most likely a proper answer can only be provided if one were to review both contracts. If this the situation where the same parties wrote up 1 contract and then agreed to write up a 2nd contract? Or is the property owner party to...Read more »
An Indiana attorney could advise best, but your question remains open for two weeks, and you express some immediate concerns about the safety and welfare of your family. One option here is to repost your question and include Landlord-Tenant as a category. Although all your category selections make...Read more »
I am a practicing member of the Idaho State Bar, my friend and have multiple lawsuits I can reference pleadings for if I need to. However, a "Template?" I'm sorry, no set of facts are the same; and, even the Rules of Civil Procedure have changed, just since my last suit. So, it...Read more »
Yes, it is possible to receive your money back and even be awarded treble (ie 3x the amount of damage sustained) damages and attorney's fees. NJ has very strict rules governing home improvement contracts. The best advise is to seek legal advise from someone familiar with home improvement litigation.
I had a leak in my ceiling in the apartment I rent. They rushed me out put me in another apartment but they damaged a lot of my property and a lot of it with sentimental value including an airplane propeller that my ex-boyfriend UPS to me when I got my bachelor's degree from flight school he...

This would not be an intellectual property question, but there's not really a law in regards to this. This would be more appropriately a question for the insurance company that was used to fix the ceiling. As far as I know though, most insurance companies don't give any additional value...Read more »
Contract states Final due on concrete Completion but we are getting paver coping instead of concrete. Still a huge piece of the project to be finished. Don’t feel it’s fair to give full payment with a large piece unfinished and unscheduled.
Contractually, you're likely obligated to make the payment. However, you may be able to renegotiate on your own or with the help of an attorney for different milestones and payments. I'm sure anyone who responds would be happy to help if you decide to hire a lawyer. Good luck.
I had a contract with a home builder to build a house but things went bad. I asked to walk away and the builder agreed to terminate the contract in exchange for some money which I paid. We didn’t use a attorney but wrote up a simple agreement and signed it. Am I clear of the builder’s contract now?

An Oregon attorney could advise best, but your post remains open for four weeks. I'm sorry for your ordeal and the loss of your home to fire. When you say you want advice, not answer, you may need to consider a consult with an attorney (if you don't have one already, where the attorney...Read more »
Dear Unpaid Subcontractor: Your options for getting paid are two-fold: (A) a breach of contract claim against the General Contractor and/or (B) a mechanic's lien processing against the Homeowner. Clearly, you are not "required" to pursue the Homeowner (as intimated by the GC)...Read more »
