The city I live in replaced all the main sewer lines this past summer about 8 months ago. Since then, three houses in a row, including mine, have experienced ruptured pipes on our properties. Other homeowners on the street and other streets have experienced the same thing.
The neighbors should band together and hire an engineer to inspect and determine a cause for the problem, then the neighbors can retain an attorney to review the situation, talk with the city, and try to find a resolution.
In which court would I file a successor liability suit for a lifetime basement waterproofing warranty that came from a company that is now defunct. The former owner now owns a new, unrelated company that works to fix bowing foundation walls. He used to own a waterproofing business. Thanks!

He is trying to bully you. Ignore him. If his name is not on the title, he has no rights to it. If he takes it, call the police and report it stolen by him. If he signed the loan, his obligation is to pay the loan, but that does not give him any rights in the car if his name is not on the...Read more »

Tell him if he has it towed, you will sue him for the towing, and report it to the police as car...Read more »
