    You definitely have a case, but the problem is your damages. If you quit and find another job, they are minimal and it would be difficult to find an attorney to take your case on a contingent fee basis. Start looking for another job right away. The best way to deal with the bad situation is to get out of it. You should consult with an attorney and you might also file a case, yourself, in small claims court. You could seek damages of up to $5,000 there without a lawyer. Look up Small Claims...

    Depends on the will, if the sibling had one, and the inheritance laws of Washington and the heirs of the sibling. If the sibling had a spouse, he or she may get the property interest. You need to consult a lawyer (and pay one) to understand what your rights are with respect to managment of the property.

    Damage to your real property caused by the negligence OR trespass of another party is generally recoverable. You should immediately get an estimate from a licenced and qualified contractor as to how much it will cost to restore your property to the original condition and make a demand on the developer and the developer's contractor. Their insurance may cover it and you may get paid without much difficulty. On the other hand, if the damage is over $5,000 and they do not pay, you should consult...

  6. Can I sue a City of Seattle Municipal Court employee for torts?

    Answered about 1 year ago.

    You may be able to sue, but you have to show an amount for Damages. Since the judgment was vacated, the damage claim may be very small. Washington does not allow punitive damages. Figure out what the mistake cost you in real money (not emotional pain and suffering unless it made you go to a doctor) and find a lawyer that would be willing to take your case and has experience with claims against the city.

    The Washinton Residential Landlord Tenant act is very specific about what kinds of expenses can be deducted from rent due.

    A handwriting expert would be useful. Also witnesses that could testify to the signing, even if they were not notarys. It is a matter of proof, but the writing would be important and would be presumed to be what it said. If you paid him anything for the contract, that would be in your favor, especially if you had the check. If there was a penalty clause if YOU DID NOT BUY, that would also be in your favor. Does the agreement have an attorney's fee provision? If not, the next time you...

    Withour the words--"Wtith right of survivorship" or some proof that the joint tenant language was INTENDED to mean with survivorship rights, it does not look good for your prevailing in a suit to quiet title in your name, as the previous writers indicated. HOWEVER, there is a bright side of this, apparently there is no question that you are entitled to 50% undivided interest in the house. You can buy the other 50% from the estate. It should be easy to finance sine you already own 50% ---...
