    Have your complaints been in writing? All complaints should be in writing. Don't forget to keep a copy of the complaint for your records. If you were not having these problems when you moved in, you should mention to your landlord that every lease agreement has an implied covenant of quiet enjoyment. In other words, the landlord has an obligation to ensure that you possess the premises in peace.

    First, the insurer can get a copy of the police report. You are not obligated to provide one to the insurer. You could provide them with the case number if they don't already have it. You are entitled to parts that will return your car to its pre-accident state, if possible. If you have collision coverage, you may want to have your insurer assist you with the property damage claim. You likely have a deductible, but your insurer, if the other driver is at fault, should assist you in getting...

    I'm sorry to hear about your accident. It sounds awful. You would be well advised to talk to an attorney about what options you might have. If the young man that hit you was living with his parents, they may be liable under the "family car doctrine." Also, if you have UM/UIM coverage of your own, your insurance may be able to pick up where the at fault party's insurance (or lack of insurance) leaves off. In any event, there may be options for you. You should definitely contact an...

    A "renter's license" is not required to rent property. However, the property must be "habitable." If it is not, you must give the landlord written notice about the problem. Make sure to keep a copy of the written notice for your records. A landlord has 24 hours, 72 hours or 10 days to START making the repairs, depending upon what the issue is.

    Yes. A landlord can serve the 3 day notice. Make sure you strictly comply with the statute. Judges (or more likely a court commissioner) strictly interpret the statute authorizing the pay or vacate process. A lawyer in your area could likely help you make sure you do it correctly.

    You should absolutely talk to a lawyer that handles products liability cases. You also need to preserve the evidence (i.e., the car). A good expert may be able to determine what the cause of the steering failure was, even if it is mangled. An insurance company may not be willing to take this extra step and you should therefore consult an attorney immediately.

    If you caused damage to someone else's property or injured them, you should probably report the damage. Whether the accident took place on private is irrelevant if you were at fault for causing the damage. If you were at fault, the statute of limitations would govern how long you could be held liable in court. How long you could be held liable for the damages would be a matter of years, not a matter of days.

    Weather may change the "duty" of drivers. In other words, if conditions are more dangerous, drivers will have a duty to adjust their driving to compensate for the poor conditions. If the persons that hit you were driving in a manner that was unsafe because of the conditions (in this case, snow and ice), they would probably be considered at least partially "at fault" for causing the collision.
