If the property is abandoned then yes, you can dispose of the property freely. That's the bind though. Just because the property has been left behind does not necessarily mean that it has been abandoned. The best way to cover your liability is to have the previous tenants sign off that any...Read more »

Likely no, the insurance company will require you to sign a release before giving you the settlement proceeds. That release will bar you from going after the insurance company or the individual in the future.
You would need to provide much more information to answer the question accurately. A warrant can only be lifted by the court and that would depend on the underlying charge, the length of time since missing the court date, the number of times the person has missed court in this case and any other...Read more »
There's no definitive answer that anyone here can give you. Attorneys all have different fees and fee schedules. Some may offer a flat fee while others ask for a retainer. Others may charge hourly and bill you later. The only way to get a definitive answer is to call attorneys and ask them.

You may have a claim, but these types of claims are not only extremely difficult to prove, they also rarely pay out as there is no insurance and most individuals don't have the money to pay a substantial verdict. You also have to show the economic harm that these statements have caused, which...Read more »
I was in an accident involving only myself. My vehicle was then towed. I need to get some of my personal belongings out of the vehicle but the towing company wants to charge me to get my things. Can they do this? I have all the paperwork and the keys to the car.
If your car was towed because it was not driveable, the towing company had a right to tow it and an obligation to store it, probably under police order. If you do not have towing on your car insurance or you do not have car insurance, you are responsible for the towing and storage fees. The...Read more »
I was walking out of my garage going to get mail. Next door neighbor's dog ran up to me and started barking. While the minor who was with him told me he (the dog) didn't bite, the dog instead bit me three times. One of those times left a mark on my lower leg. I spoke with one parent who... Read more »
Do you have a claim?: Maybe, this depends on whether the dog has shown a violent propensity before, this is known as the "one bite" rule in Indiana. Basically, if the dog has never bit anyone before then the owner will not have had sufficient notice of the dog's violent propensity...Read more »

There's nothing stopping her from suing you for the cost of the transmission or for fraud. The real question is whether or not she would be successful. Unless you made any guarantees, offered her a warranty or had knowledge of a material defect, which it does not sound like you did, the odds...Read more »
I've tried to be neighborly but have recently had more issues with him on another tree. Do I have any options for the one that happened 3 years ago and is their anything I can do about a tree that is dead center on the property line that I want gone but he doesn't?
No, it would not be worth appealing. The limit for collecting in Small Claims in Indiana is $6,000. If you look to appeal a judgement from Small Claims you will need an attorney because appealing is not friendly to non-lawyers and you will have to hire an attorney to help you. The costs for hiring...Read more »
