More details would be needed here for an attorney to respond - at least some basic information about the type of matter involved. Or if it is something you don't wish to post on a public forum, you could contact attorneys in your area directly. Good luck
If someone buys a property and later you find out that an issue was not disclosed. You file a lawsuit and then you decide to sell the property in dispute. Can you transfer the lawsuit to the new buyer? Can you add their name to the suit and remove yourself?

You may well have claims against your landlord but you will need to review it all with a local landlord-tenant attorney to know for sure and exactly what. The obvious solution, however, is for you to simply move - something you are likely going to have to do before long anyway if your set up truly...Read more »

Your roommates have no authority to terminate your tenancy or to force you out, anymore than you have to terminate their tenancy or force them out. Only your landlord has such authority and then usually it needs to be for cause. Problems? Review everything with a landlord-tenant attorney. Good...Read more »
I met with a lawyer after being referred though the Oregon Bar Association referral line and after we were done talking I asked that what I shared be kept confidential. He told me that he was under no obligation whatsoever to keep my information confidential. He said that a consultation even if I... Read more »
I can't speak reliably for the actual Oregon Bar Association referral line (that communication is probably not a confidential communication subject to the attorney/client privilege), but the communication with an attorney is subject to the confidential communication privilege.
Mother removed children from oregon. Got restraining order for domestic violence and because children were being abused/neglected. Judge in oregon allowed father to violate order and virbal badger children and mother. Judge gave custody to father because of restraining order.
There is a lot of information that is needed to provide a full answer. In general, Oregon restraining orders are only good if there has been abuse of one party by the other. The children are obviously involved, but a restraining order likely wouldn't be upheld if it is based on abuse of the...Read more »

This is a common and unfortunate scenario when there is no comprehensive estate plan in place. If your mother and father owned their assets jointly while they were both alive, the surviving spouse will own everything when the first spouse dies. There is no estate and no probate for the first...Read more »

He should see a local landlord-tenant attorney immediately. Yes, he has rights and no, step-mother had no legal right to either dispossess him of his property or to oust him from her home without first obtaining a court order.

Just humor your mother. Pay for the carpet and the padding. You got free rent. Do the right thing. Besides, it probably won't cost you any more then your first trip to talk to an Attorney. And I agree with your mom. If you are going to put in new carpeting you should also change the...Read more »

A tenant cannot unreasonably refuse you entry to inspect your property. Whether you can clear brush etc. depends upon what their lease says and what their rights include. The only way to really know is for you to take a copy of the lease to a local landlord-tenant attorney for an in depth review...Read more »

You simply can't put something this complex on a website, summarize what happened and ask a question and expect a decent answer. No competent Attorney is going to try to answer something this complex. They will need to sit down with you and review everything that happened and advise you and...Read more »

There is no such thing as a survey being impossible. Get a surveyor and work out the boundaries of your lot using your legal description in your deed and the maps filed with the county. A surveyor can file a new map with the county if the old map is wrong.
