    I assume you're deciding whether to hire a real estate agent or a real estate attorney. Buyers benefit most from realtors, who have the ability to market a seller's property on MLS and other listing services. But buyers obviously do not have the marketing needs of sellers. Buyers like you who have identified a specific market (Lake Elsinore), can perform their own research online to find prospective properties and pricing within that given market. So without the need for marketing or for...

    I have a slightly different take on your situation than Mr. Abbott. You purchased a house with money provided by your parents for the down payment, but also through the use of your good credit to qualify for a purchase your parents couldn't qualify for. Yes, mom and dad paid the mortgage but they enjoyed the use of the property during that time. Several key facts are missing, such as whether and how you documented this transaction with your parents. Arguably your parents are the 'equitable'...

    Although it is not illegal to eavesdrop on a conversation among people who don't know you're listening, California Penal Code section 632 makes it illegal to use an electronic device to eavesdrop and/or record a confidential conversation without all parties' consent. In order for a conversation to be considered confidential, it needs to occur under circumstances that reasonably indicate at least one person to the conversation (in this case the father) intends for the conversation to be private....

    You can request that the court allow you to file part or all of your responsive papers under seal. This will require a sworn declaration specifying the reason(s) for your request (e.g., safety concerns, etc.) Ask your court clerk and check your court's local rules for the proper procedure to file papers under seal.

    It is inappropriate for you to question the witness directly. If for whatever reason your attorney cannot adequately prepare for the deposition, you might consider discussing with opposing counsel the time and expense to be saved by stipulating to allow you to question the witness within agreeable limits instead of having to break every time you need to coach your attorney.

    Courts typically require both sides of the case to meet and confer regarding their respective pretrial documents, including pretrial motions, jury instructions, witness lists and exhibit lists. Many courts require the parties to file jointly. Check your court's local rules and contact the clerk of your department to determine your judge's particular requirements. Whatever your courtroom's procedure is, each of your exhibits will be assigned its own number. That number will be used for the...

    If you are a tenant and your townhouse is part of a homeowners association, your lease/rental agreement with your landlord is not the only document governing your tenancy. Other governing documents include the association's Covenants, Conditions & Restrictions (CC&R's), bylaws, rules and regulations, and any other document the association may have created for the governance of the association. Ask your landlord for a copy of the association's governing documents to determine your rights and...
