It wouldn’t be right or legal for him to do so. But keep an eye on your cat because if your neighbor catches him and takes him to the pound, there will be little you can do to get him back, especially if he doesn’t have a collar or a microchip.
Ask? Of course. Require? Not a chance. Do you want others going through your home when you are not there? Neither do most tenants. Further the tenant has an absolute right to deny you entry as long as they do not do so unreasonably - and good luck in getting a Judge to say a tenant is being...Read more »

I recommend you hire an attorney to assist you with this case. I'm not entirely sure what "Subpoenas for information" refers to. If you are trying to pursue a Will contest there are important time limits in place so it's essential that you hire an experienced probate litigator as soon as possible
I would look to your rental agreement to see if the issue of dog neutering is addressed. Landlords can have a policy of no dogs or only neutered dogs. If your dog is a service dog, then the landlord will need to accommodate your disability. I am not sure if the neutered status of your dog affects...Read more »
This fine is devastating and seems way out of line with the infraction. There was no one at the intersection (except the officer), he was driving under the speed limit, and he made a conscious decision when he saw the stop sign that it would be safer to drive through it than to slam on the breaks....

I will also be eligible to apply for naturalization in September. Would... Read more »
I was making a purchase in a Chevron convenient store located in Dexter Oregon and they charged me 5 cents for a paper bag that was from WinCo is that against the law especially during this whole Corona virus epidemic
An Oregon consumer rights attorney could advise best, but your post remains open for two weeks. That rule is being implemented by cities all over the nation and is more closely tied to recycling/waste reduction than to the pandemic. Good luck
My house closing has been pushed back past when I am supposed to be out of my apartment and the landlord says I cannot stay longer. What happens if I stay past my move out date. I only need an additional 4 days.
No worries - while your landlord won't like it, and you will still owe rent for the additional days, the only thing the landlord can legally do is file to evict you in court. Not only does that cost him money, but your first court appearance cannot be before 7 days after he files (and no...Read more »
An ex and I signed a lease for an apartment 2016, 3 months before the year was up we had to move out of state and didn't have the money to pay the rest of the lease. Of course there is an eviction on my credit (and probably his too). He and I broke up due to abuse and I have no idea where he... Read more »
You cannot file for bankruptcy on only one debt - all of your debts must be listed and are affected. You may want to consider seeing a debt settlement attorney in your area, perhaps you can work out a favorable settlement on this one debt.
Well, assuming the grace period has already expired and there's no common law use or federal registration(s)/pending application(s) for anything identical or similar in the relevant categories, then you could attempt to register the mark. I'd recommend hiring a trademark attorney to...Read more »
I had a business associate who was going to be a partner rip me off for a lot of money and inventory. We started a new joint bank account together at banner bank.

If you opened a personal joint bank account, it is usually opened "A or B",not "A and B", which makes a huge difference. If the account was opened as "A or B" or "A,B", the meaning is the same. The Terms and Conditions agreement you would have been given by...Read more »
A cat showed up at my house and I am trying in good faith to find her owners (if any) before I adopt her as my own. I took her to the vet after 3 days to scan for a chip (none), check for sterilization (spayed but not ear tipped), and check her overall health. I have checked any/all social media... Read more »
In Colorado, the law on abandoned property is 5 years. You would have to look up the abandoned property law in OR, because animals are considered property there, too. That said, you are doing the right things to protect your ownership claim if the true owner does ever pop up.
We had a tenant who broke the lease and left the floors in bad shape. More damage here than what is left of the deposit and so we will be looking for them to pay. This is definitely more than normal wear and tear but we have new tenants ready to move in and they are fine if we put off some of the... Read more »
