I have been renting a house since September and the property management company conveyed a concern from the owner that I was made aware of the high cost of utilities, stating the water bill is 350-400 in the summer months. This was also stated in an addendum to the lease that I signed. There have... Read more »
Dear Menifee Lessee: You have asked about responsibility for excessive water bills, as between the Lessee or the Lessor. From the description of your question there seems to have been "notice" to Lessee but at a $350-$400 level, whereas you have indicated that you are seeing bills...Read more »
I wrote a song and did the music arrangement in Logic Pro X using many royalty free loops to create my song. If I work with a producer who does his own interpretation of my original song via new music production how much ownership do I have regarding the music content?
I'm in default but have learned that the contractor needed a separate permit to perform the work so that the work would be reviewed by the city and signed off accordingly. That was part of the contract, that I would have to pay them once the city signed off the permit. Since they didn't... Read more »
if there is a default against you, it means you failed to appear and the judge entered judgment. there are only limited circumstances where that default could be lifted and you will need a lawyer to go over those options and do the work which means you will need to pay a lawyer to do this. it is...Read more »
not sure what the question here is. also not clear if you purchased a new house or are renting one. different laws apply and therefore lawyers don't always practice in both arears of law. maybe rewrite and report your post and question with more information and details.

My former client (of 16 years) pursued 5 of my 6 subcontractors until they terminated their contract with my company and went to work for my client. At first, my subcontractors were concerned that the "non compete clause" in their contract with me would prevent them from working for my... Read more »
Based on what is stated here, there might be a claim. More facts need to be examined. California "non-complete" restrictions are widely misunderstood. Under California Supreme Court decisions, there are facts under which an agreement having an obligation restricting competition can hold...Read more »
I signed a rental agreement in September of 2020 and I noticed a clause that said the property management company will perform non-specific inspections, pretty much to check on the property and the tenants. We haven't been here 90 days and they are already trying to do said inspection. Do they... Read more »
Leases customarily have landlord inspection clauses. They also have specific notice requirements and the notices must be in writing. If your lease has these provisions it is legal and valid. I recommend you cooperate with the property management company and let them inspect. Otherwise, you will...Read more »

I do not think the contract package is legit, because during the process, the broker always mess up the docu sign contracts and I worry if there is something shady in the contract. Especially during the Covid time eviction is impossible I am really worried.

you will remain liable on the debt whether you are in possession of the vehicle or not. If you give the vehicle to the creditor, they can sell it but whatever difference between the sale price and the money owed on the loan you will still be liable for. You can try to refinance the vehicle, or...Read more »

Or do I go ahead and file, show proof of the overpayment, I just don't want him to say he didn't get a chance to... Read more »
It always looks better to the judicial officer if the plaintiff tried to resolve the dispute, in a reasonable way, before filing a lawsuit. This dispute sounds significant enough that it would be worthwhile to get legal advice, especially if the work was substandard.

You ask for your $17,000.00 back under any circumstance, do it now. Not obligated to warn of legal action, he will figure it out. This is more than Small Claims, you should get a local contracts attorney to assist you.

You need an itemized list of what was taken so you can put a value on this. Sorry to hear you lost your memorabilia, but it is gone now, and the only thing you would be entitled to is money in return, not quite the same.
