I lived here for 9 years the owner died and family's took over now they have a problem with me.
Your rights are controlled by state law, local ordinances and your written lease, if you have one. You don't say what problem your landlord has or whether they've told you to remove things from the property, but if they have asked you to remove something they need to have grounds for that. Typical reasons would be safety and health issues, or aesthetic concerns. You should confirm what the issue is and decide whether it's worth disputing. If they are asking you not to store something on your porch that you've had there for nine years you may be able to defeat their attempt to changes things now. I think this is worth discussing with a local attorney to see exactly what your rights are in your particular situation.See question
I am not allowed to sublease rooms in my house but I did it. The people living here are now refusing to pay the rent. I am ok to let them stay but I want to take all my furniture back, beds, mattress.... Is it possible?
Your rights and theirs depend on state law and local ordinances. I assume you do not have a written agreement with them. Your ability to take back the things you've allowed them to use will depend on what your oral agreement was and possibly what their reason is for not paying you. Self-help is not usually encouraged in situations like this so taking your things back may result in another level of headaches. I believe that you've stepped in a big enough problem that you should seek a local attorney to help guide you through the solution.See question

It's hard to tell from what you wrote exactly what your question is. Your rights regarding your landlord are controlled by state law and local ordinances that vary throughout the country. If you have a written lease, you will have whatever additional protections it may provide. In general if you are in compliance with your lease a landlord would need to follow legal procedures to evict you. I believe that you should consult a local attorney to see what your rights are and how best to protect yourself.See question

Your rights will be controlled by Connecticut law and any local ordinances that apply. It sounds like the local inspector believes that he's not authorized to inspect single family homes whatever the issue is.
You don't say whether you have contacted your landlord about this. If you haven't it makes sense to do so in writing. If you have and he hasn't corrected the problem, you may be able to withhold rent until he does. I believe that you should contact a local attorney to find out if withholding your rent is an option in your circumstances.See question

Questions like this are controlled by state law and local ordinances that differ across the country. When you can withhold rent varies from place to place. In general, if your landlord is not providing a habitable place to live, you can withhold rent until the premises are made habitable. Documenting your efforts to get your landlord to deal with this problem, his responses to you and the impact this has had on your life will help you in your case. I think this is important enough that you should consult a local attorney to see what your rights are in your particular circumstances.See question
I have been evicted from my business rental property due to a stipulation the plaintiffs attorney got me to sign without me having an attorney present and now after further review of all court documents it is clear that several of the judges signa...
In many places electronic signatures are being used by courts. Also sometimes signatures don't look the same each time. The first thing I believe you should do is call the court to determine whether the orders you have were all signed and filed in the matters that you are involved in.
If you believe that you were tricked into signing a stipulation and/or have other reasons to re-open the case, you should speak to your lawyer about that and pursue re-opening on those grounds.See question

Because he has lived on the property for more than thirty days with your father's permission, state law may consider that an oral tenancy has been created and your father can only remove him by following eviction procedures. You should consult a local attorney to find out what your rights are under your own state law. These things differ throughout the country.
Going forward it would make sense to try to come to a written agreement about the terms of your living there so that you have more protection from your father's changing moods or in the event he becomes incapacitated. Discussing these issues with an attorney is also a good idea because getting documents about financial matters and health care before your father becomes ill is a lot cheaper and easier to do than dealing with courts afterwards.See question
Can the other party show more evidence in court that wasn't shown in there discovery?
The answer to your question depends on a lot of variables that you don't include information about.
What was the question that the discovery addressed? Should a fair answer have included the evidence now proffered in court? If so, what was the reason for not including it in the discovery response? Was there a discovery order in this case? What is the evidence? How did it come to be introduced at trial? Was it in response to a question by the opposing side or proffered in direct examination?
Often, scheduling or discovery orders include provisions that exhibits need to be exchanged prior to trial and that exhibits not exchanged will not be admissible at trial unless there is a good reason to make an exception.
You haven't given enough specifics to answer whether your situation is one where the evidence would not be allowed.
At the time it was offered was an objection made? If not, then you may lose the right to object.See question
Isn't that a double positive (or double negative depending on how you look at it). It's like saying "more bigger" or something. Isn't it a given if you're a licensed lawyer, you're going to be litigating in court?
Lots of lawyers spend their entire careers never seeing the inside of a courtroom. The term "litigation lawyer" is applied to those lawyers that focus their practices on matters that either are in suit or may end up there unless something can be worked out.See question
I have a commercial lease with a short period of time remaining. The landlord is selling the building. I was told that the new landlord would have to honor the lease period. Is the following language "Tenant may renew the Lease for two (2) one ...
Generally a purchaser would step into the shoes of the seller and be bound by all existing lease requirements. The lease itself, however, may have provisions for the sale of the property that could change things. The provisions you cite seem to provide for the renewal and should be effective unless there is some other provision that says otherwise. It may be worth running this by a local attorney familiar with local ordinances and state law.See question
