Hi, I am currently renting a house. About a few weeks ago I started to notice mold growing on the side of the ceiling and windows. Also, found some on shoes and clothing items.
Your problem generally involves landlord-tenant law. My sense is that if you find an attorney who does a lot of apartment-related work that such a person likely deals with mold issues because they are becoming prevalent in apartments that are not well maintained.See question
I am attending a university which has deleted information in regards to placement testing that I needed to register for classes in my next semester. I have already taken the test, less than six months ago, but after contacting the department it ap...
I think you are going to have to work this out through the administrative procedures of the school. I don't see how you can sue them for losing an academic record, because there's no remedy a court can give you. Unfortunately, it seems to me you are going to have to take the test again.See question
We have a son together and lived together for 1 year, the truck is in my name and he is on my insurance. He was recently in a car accident and 2 weeks later ordered to pay child support. 3 days after the court order he says he isn't going to pay...
You have too many questions and too many facts for someone to help you from a post here. For example, "your ex": Ex husband, or ex-boyfriend? As far as paying the truck note, I don't think it depends on the accident, but whether you have some sort of binding agreement that requires him to pay the note.See question
I recently entered into a contract to purchase a vehicle from a private owner.We wrote up a contract for purchasing the vehicle. We didnt say any specific date to have the truck paid off nor any set agreement on what minium i have to pay a month. ...
This is an example of why any contract should at least be reviewed by a lawyer before you sign it.See question
My husband responded to an ad for a job paying $20 per hour as a OTR CDL driver. Today he was informed that management is saying they are dropping their pay to $18 per hour and now only going to pay them for one hour of layover even if the drop t...
You have two good answers already. I'll add that employers need to be able to react to changes in the economy or even just in their business, and at times cutting wages is a necessary way to cut costs. Your husband's situation is not ideal, but he should now evaluate whether the $18 per hour and the reduced layover time are better or worse than he can get elsewhere. He has the right to change jobs if he can do better. Before he does that, he might want to ask if this is a permanent change or temporary; whether he's eligible for raises in the future, things like that which allow him to take into account a long-term prospect and not just the immediate situation.See question
That's an excellent suggestion to go online for social security information. They have a lot of info there that can answer many questions, including how to apply. Technically, it would not be "his" social security but a benefit set up for survivors that pays you a certain amount that would differ from what his benefits might have been.See question
I am on the title to our house, but not on the mortgage. When I sign the quit deed will this take me off of the title to the house?
When you speak with an attorney make sure you discuss why you want to be taken off the title. Most people feel it is to their benefit to be on the title.See question
As he has the degree, earns more money than I do and promised to repay me years ago, now he is married and decided he cannot afford to repay his loans. I certainly cannot pay his $77,000 myself. What can I do?
Assuming you are correct that the loans are "in your name" this most likely means you co-signed for them. Two options come to mind: (1) sue your son for breach of contract; he has not kept his promise to you; or (2) wait and see if the lender will pursue this if he doesn't pay and make sure if they file suit that they don't mistakenly assume that you make more and go after only you. You could join him into the case if that happened. If you are facing pressure from the lender to pay on the debt then it's time to speak directly with a lawyer.See question
I am the victim of a crime for a aggravated assault charge, due to strangulation. I called the police but it was only to get my things out the home, and my cell phone. I didn't press charges, and I do not want to testify. I've talked to one DA fo...
You didn't want to get involved but now you are. I think that calls for rethinking your objectives here, and I would hope that you want to see someone who has committed an act of criminal violence be brought to justice. Think about who else you might be helping by doing that.See question
I have a Visa check card through my bank and I have always wanted credit transactions, never debit. I know when I use it as debit there is an extra $1 charged to my account. Now Walmart gives me no choice. I am told that they do this so that they ...
I don't know of any reason why Walmart cannot be selective as to any form of payment they take. For example, some companies for decades have refused personal checks. But I see two quick options for you: (1) stop shopping at Walmart; or (2) shop there only when you need to spend more than $50. If you can get your groceries there, it's easy to exceed $50 and then you can also get that $10 item for the kitchen/bath/garden/whatever and not have your card run as a debit.See question
