It doesn't sound like a safe place to live. You should consider moving.
The LL is not responsible to you for the noise created by the garage doors as they open and close. The LL is also not responsible for the general cleanliness of the unit, whatever that means.
If there is a termite infestation or other rodent or insect infestation you should provide your landlord in writing in notice of the issue. Same goes with the electrical issues, mold and lack of safety detectors. If he fails to...
Let me first say that I am so sorry to hear about your son. That is truly a tragic event and I can't even imagine the pain and the loss that you must be going through. I have young children of my own and cannot even fathom the pain of losing one of them.
As for your question, there's really not much you can do. If the police continue to contact you and ask you questions then it might be a good idea to lawyer up.
Yes. See California Code of Civil Procedure section 94, subdivision (a)(1) - (3).
You're also only allowed one deposition. See Cal. Code Civ. Proc. section 94, subdivision (b).
A good idea, though, is to serve a case questionnaire with the complaint as authorized by section 93. That way you can get basic information like names, addresses, witnesses, etc. without having to waste any of your 35 questions.
You can also check online the status of your case. If a trial date has been set by the Court it will be posted on line as well.
Assuming the case has been filed in Los Angeles County because that is where the question was posted, you can find the LA Superior Court website here: http://www.lasuperiorcourt.org/
You'll need the case number as well as the name of both parties and the address of the residence.
I agree with Mr. Chen.
You are responsible to the Irvine Company under the lease agreement that you signed. Unless the Irvine Company decides to release you from any liability, they can claim any unpaid rent from you.
However, the Irvine Company cannot recover damages which through the use of reasonable care and efforts could have been avoided. For example, if you had 9 months left on the lease and through reasonable efforts the Irvine Company re-rented the unit after 2 months, then you'...
The LL had 21 days to mail you a letter outlining the reasons why he withheld your security along with proof of payment in the amount withheld. And, if there is any security leftover, he must return that with the letter and proof of payment for deductions. Again, this must be done w/in 21 days of you leaving the premises.
The LL's failure to do this exposes him to liability in the amount of actual damages and statutory damages in the amount of twice the security if you can show the he...
The first thing you need to do is calculate the 30 day period the Defendants had to respond. It appears form your question that it is going to be close and that each Defendant was not served on the same day. As the other attorney noted, the method of service and any weekends or Court Holidays will effect the 30 day period.
If their Response is untimely then you still need to oppose the motion and demurrer. Bring this issue up as point number one. BUT, do not rely only on that procedural...
A corporation may only appear in court through a licensed attorney.
In the eyes of the law a corporation has all the powers of a natural person in the carrying out of its business. This means the corporation may avail itself of the state's laws and may bring a lawsuit. However, under long-settled common law, a corporation cannot represent itself before courts of record without a lawyer, and it cannot represent itself through an officer, director or any other person who is not also a...
