    Yes it is, but don't think that it will necessarilly protect you completely from any liability that may result from its use. Also, if you are going to have a waiver signed, you may want to have it professionally drafted to make sure that it is as comprehensive as possible. My recommendation would be to simply find a less risky activity for your party. The response given is not intended to create, nor does it create an ongoing duty to respond to questions.

  2. How do I get my neighbor to cut the branches of his tree that the branches rest on my roof?

    If you are comfortable and competent to cut them yourself, that would probably be the best way to proceed. As stated previously, it appears that the branches rise to the level of a nuisance. If you can not or prefer not to cut the branches on your own, you should commence a suit in Minnesota District Court to 1) obtain an order directing the branches to be cut, and 2) obtain a money judgment in the amount necessary to hire a service to trim the tree. You may want to seek an attorney's advice...

    No. There is a statute dealing directly with notice to tenants about abandoned property. I question whether it applies because it is far from certain that he would be considered a tenant. But, it gives good guidance as to how this should be looked at. If a tenant abandons personal property, the landlord must attempt to provide notice, and then allow a period of time for the tenant to pick the property up. There is a similar statute for property left in storage units. Unless you have...

    The best answer to your question is likely contained within the document itself. I would recomend that you review the administrative powers contained within the trust to see how it deals with the powers of the trustee generally, and specifically relating to real property. Occasionally a trust will specify a time for disposing of real property. If it does, these specifications should be followed by the trustee. More often, the trust will give the trustee the power to retain property for as...

    If you don't get a satisfactory answer here, try posting in the family law/dissolution forum. This is a common divorce issue, and you should get an answer there.

  6. Do I need a tenants right attorney?

    You ask two questions. The first is whether you need a tenant's rights attorney. The second is whether your landlord has the right to do what he did. As to the first question, oftentimes the better question is whether it is worth retaining an attorney to represent you. As a general rule, a litigant in the State of Minnesota pays their own legal fees. This means that, prior to retaining counsel, a person should weigh the potential cost of litigating against the potential gain. In addition,...

    The answer to your question depends on a number of factors that you have not provided information on in your question. For example, is the lease oral, or written? Was it a month to month lease, or a lease for a period of time? The answers to these and other questions will have a big impact on your rights and the rights of your landlord. In general, there is not a magic rule that by providing 30 days notice you have a right to cancel the lease. The closest thing to an exception to that...

    Yes, the loan modification is a contract. You are actually amending your previous contract with the bank.

  10. Can I raffle off my house?

    Answered over 4 years ago.

    1. Cameron Royal Kelly
    1 lawyer answer

    First, you will more than likely run into trouble with state and local ordinances preventing raffles and/or gambling. In the county that I represent clients, a permit can be obtained for a raffle, but the purpose has to be charitable, which yours is not. Second, the due on sale clause in your mortgage will prevent you from transfering the property to another person without the mortgage companies permission. If you transfer the property without permission, the mortgage company can...
