My ex and I went in together to get a car, It was best for me to put it under my name - due to credit issues - at first he was making payments then stopped etc. etc. he was the registered owner to vehicle and insurance was under his name, back in ...
As the one who signed (or co-signed), you're obligated to pay what's due but you can certainly sue him for any shortfall. Depending on facts, you might be able to recover some of it. How much is the shortfall?See question
He ran a yellow light . I feel he should've given me at least 5,000.00 for leaving me without a car.
I assume your insurance would have made you whole except for your deductible. You must not have been able to establish you lost more than $700 dollars, including your deductible if you sued for 5k and received a judgment for only $700. Was it a judge or an arbitrator? A judge's decision can be appealed but an arbitrator's cannot.See question
OSC is not filed.
Mr. Smollens is correct but I want to point out that the tenant can also file an OSC before the date comes if he knows he will need more time and wants to give the court the appearance of not waiting until the last moment.
Can the bank, gov., whoever place a lien on my home if my daughter is on the deed to my home? If I were to put my daughter on my deed to my home. And her and her husband both owe past due student loans.
Absolutely. And, if you're considering adding your daughter to the deed and she and her husband owe student loans - DO NOT DO IT. If you want to make sure she gets the house, there are better ways to go about it. See a local attorney to discuss options.See question
I purchased a home 2 years ago. Mortgage and deed are both in my name. All of the bills are also in my name. I asked my "now ex" boyfriend to move out several times. He keeps telling me he is going to leave but keeps pushing the date back. He quit...
I agree with what some of the other attorneys have suggested, but am not sure it's something you should be attemtping yourself. Note, if your ex never paid rent, he may be entitled to a lot less than 30 days' notice - which, by the way is not a literal counting of 30 days - and if you start the wrong type of eviction or provide inadequate notice (or the wrong amount of time), your eviction will fail and you will have to start over. Even though you don't have the money for an attorney, it will cost you more (in time and aggravation) in the long run without one. Guaranteed. Good luck!See question
Do these type of retainers usually extend to the point the tenant is physically removed? If the landlord prevails after the trial and gets a warrant, how many more appearances are there generally? Are those appearances covered in a flat fee evicti...
As you suggested, each attorney is different. Some may include a certain number of appearances in a flat fee for a holdover (with a per-appearance fee after that number is reached), but I doubt any will include a trial, which would typically turn it into an hourly fee or at least an additional appearance fee. If you're talking about a particular firm's flat fee eviction, you should ask that firm what it includes. Good luck!See question
It's been over 3 months since my lawyer failed to start a illegal lock out case. Can I ask the judge if they will allow me to bring up the case without counsel since it was never heard by a judgd
I've read the question and responses to the other attorneys and am even more confused now then when I started... You're the tenant and you were illegally locked out? You had a lease? You've been living somewhere else for the past 3 months? We need more info.See question
Someone may have used my name to get a ticket under my name but gave false information. I was given advice to run my name by a friend because he said he "thinks" he overheard someone getting a ticket and giving the officer what sounded to him like...
I'm just chiming in to ask where you "ran your name" in order to find this ticket.See question
The lease was signed with my name 10 years ago. The lease was for one year. After the lease expired I kept paying rent and have never missed a payment. The undertenant pays me and is overdue for four months now prompting my holdover case to evict ...
I'm confused by the fact that you spoke to a judge who said you had to demonstrate your "right" to the place and you concluded by asking whether your lease will hold up. How far along did your holdover action proceed and what was the last determination? You had a trial? Otherwise, why was the judge involved? I would think your original lease and proof of payments as a month-to-month tenant for the last 10 years would be sufficient proof that you had standing to bring the action against your sub-tenant. Is the subtenant's lease in writing?See question
I've been living in my property for over 3yrs now and I wanted to put up a fence during that time. I was doing some work on my home and the town of Hempstead in Nassau said that I had to put up a temporary fence while construction is being done. ...
Mr. Rothstein is correct. Unless there's only one surveyor in your town, the surveyor has no way of knowing or finding out whether your neighbor had a survey - but if they've lived there over 30 years, it may be true that it's been that long since most homeowners never need to update their survey while they own. If you have the town's approval, I see no reason to not install your fence. Let the neighbor bring an action if he wants to try and stop you. Good luck.See question
