I rented out a 210 square feet studio apartment and my brother has nowhere else to live and needs to live with me. I live in Syracuse, NY, and heard something about the "Roommate law" When I was first shown the apartment the person showing it to ...
Attorneys Smollens and Treiman are correct but do you have a lease? If "the person" showing you the apt was a Realtor, perhaps. If yes, how much time remains? If no, you're month-to month. Either way, you need to decide whether fighting over this (risking being evicted) is worth it. If you'r e a month to month tenant, your landlord needs no reason to evict you. And if you lease is almost up, he needs no reason for non-renewal.
My co-tenant wants off the renewal lease and we provided a notarized letter asking for such. My landlord now wants additional information such as proof of new address. My former co-tenant does not want to get further involved in the process and ...
I agree with your co-tenant. If he's not renewing, why would he need to provide forwarding address info to your landlord?See question

I participated in an event where someone was hurt by a flying drone that had nothing to do with me. The person sued the event host and the organizer. The organizers attorney sued me as a second third-party defendant. I have 4 kids and and extremel...
You've received 5 basically the same answer, all correct. But I want to ask what you mean when you defined yourself as a "participant." Were you an event organizer, sponsor, or somehow involved in the event itself, or were you merely a participant "spectator?" If you were involved in the event, is this your business? And, then don't you have insurance? If you do have insurance for your business, you ought to let them know, perhaps they should be defending you. Just a thought. Good luck.See question

I have a murano 2009 which I'm still financing however, the engine has blown it can't pass inspection and i can't afford to do anything with it right now. I was hoping it would be towed but instead I've received almost 2000 in tickets. Are they al...
Attorneys Nicotera and Goldman are correct but I wonder:
1st. If you're still financing it, you MUST have full insurance, no? Why can't you get it fixed? Surely, your deductible isless thant he tickets you've accumulated (and apparently were expecting).
2nd. I would think you'd be better off calling the finance company and having the vehicle repossessed, no? call the financing company and tell them you want to surrender the vehicle.
3rd. What's it worth? If you're still financing it, there must e some value. Someone might buy it from you - or take it off your hands for the lease payments - to let you walk away.
He had dropped out of school at 18 and is now 19. Since these decisions are made by him and operates on his own can I have the custody and child support dropped?
You already asked - and several attorneys answered - this question previously.

Mr. Haber is correct but we still need more info. You only say that decedent had a house but we need to know how he held title (was he in title with anyone else) and whether he was married at the time he purchased the house and / or when he died. His son may not be the sole heir and based on the info provided, we cannot be sure. Real property can pass outside one's estate depending on the manner in which title is held so that we need to know about that before we even look to the heirs. Retain counsel right away.See question
