You do have a reasonable expectation of privacy, but even more, you have a reasonable expectation of safety. Take time to think through the problem, any possible solutions (like a better place to put the ladder) and then write them down, sign and date it, save a clear photo or scan of the document,...Read more »
I was given a ticket for speeding on I15 , officer did not write my driver's license information, just my name, I have a NY state license. I want to fight the ticket for lack of information on the ticket and I went to court to dispute it for missing information on the ticket. Is it enough for... Read more »
The short answer is no. There is a misconception that some missing or inaccurate information on a ticket is grounds to have it dismissed, but unfortunately that isn't the case. Any issues in the ticket can be fixed by the prosecutor and things like your driver license number are just ways to...Read more »

I would suggest reviewing the agreement you signed with the attorney and seeing if they will discuss it with you. If they told you it would cost one amount and changed it it may explain why in the agreement you signed. It is impossible for anyone to explain why an attorney would have advised you a...Read more »
You cannot go to the Utah Bar because you had a bad court experience. Attorneys have certain standards that they must follow for ethical and other reasons. The Bar oversees those ethical guidelines. They're not the attorney's supervisor that you complain to if you lost a case. If you feel...Read more »
The answer depends on what you agreed to. An attorney will need to review each of the rental agreements you signed to be sure. Also, you can ask the landlord to produce a document that shows how that money was applied to specific costs and expenses.
Generally, the credit bureaus just publish comments about your accounts submitted by those creditors who subscribe to any of the credit bureau's service. The credit bureau itself doesn't generate comments about particular accounts, although the bureaus may have picked up your bankruptcy...Read more »
You are. If the contract had price listed as $2,035, and they charged $2,700, then you are due a refund of the amount. Have you contacted the seller yet? I can't imagine that they would have a problem issuing a refund.
Contact them first and as soon as you can. This...Read more »
If you agree to have a specific amount taken from your account, then that is normal. If any other amount is taken without your permission, the landlord needs to return it immediately or they will be criminally liable. Tell the landlord they need to return the extra funds or your next call will be...Read more »
My son received a speeding ticket in one city and entered in a 6 mo. plea and abeyance. A month later he received a speeding ticket in a different city. Will the second ticket void the first plea and abeyance or is it held separate by jurisdiction?
Most likely yes. Any moving violation is likely a violation of the plea agreement, even if it occurred in another state. The question is whether or not the prosecutor discovers it. Typically they do, but I have seen cases where they don't see them if the case has not been resolved yet. It may...Read more »

My husband and I currently live in a townhome complex, and have been smelling our neighbors second-hand weed for some time now. It took us a little while to figure out what it was. The smell was mainly coming through our vents, and was confirmed to be weed by the vent repair guy, who also confirmed... Read more »
Your safety is going to always be a priority in these matters. If you can prove you gave the landlord sufficient notice of the problem, either by email or text or written notice, then you have something you can give a judge if they sue you for breach of contract.
My husband is a permanent resident and I'm out of status. He is very verbally abusive. We were married for 3 weeks and I left after being suicidal and over dosing on sleeping pills. He always uses my immigration status to "get me in line". Threatens to divorce me and tells me that he... Read more »

My lease ends this month and the apartment complex says that I need to give them 60 days notice that I'm moving out. I've never heard of needing to this. If I have to comply I'll be paying a ton more for a month to month contract which I don't want to do.
We rented a townhouse in Draper UT in November 2020. It is a 3 bedroom, 2 1/2 bath, with an unfinished basement. In late September 2021 new management took over the property (without notice to the residence, we got notice the day the transfer of ownership took place). At this exact same time our... Read more »

My fiance was arrested with no new charges for absconding. Is there valid reason to search the vehicle? He was in my vehicle, and the vehicle was searched and then impounded, is the search a violation of rights?
The short answer is: maybe. It depends on a several factors. First, when you say absconding, is that from probation or for failure to attend something pre-trial? If it's the former, it will depend in part on the language of his probation agreement. Second, if your fiance was the driver of the...Read more »

I smell mold and I have been sick a number of times. So I took them out early this week. He told me I now have to pay a... Read more »
Your relationship is controlled by your Rental Agreement. Also, if you agree in the rental agreement to follow townhome community rules, those rules will control your relationship with the landlord as well.
If those documents make it clear that you are not allowed to put bins out early,...Read more »

Continue to pay rent. In almost all cases, paying rent is crucial to maintaining your right to stay on the property. It's always better to pay rent, while simultaneously pursuing the landlord for failure to provide services noted in the contract.
