My downsrairs neighborblasts music all hours of the night screams and yells is very inconsiderate and an altercation happened the other day where at 5 AM he was playing loud music I texted that it's inconsiderate to be blasting music at this tim...
Do he and you have the same landlord? Do you have a good relationship with the landlord? Do you have a lease?
How much do you love this apartment, aside from the late night music? Is it worth fighting over/for?
If he is blasting music at 5AM, call the police, as he suggested.See question
I signed a contract on an investment property in Niagara Falls, NY. One of the tenants moved out, and squatters moved in. The property, therefore, is not in the same condition as when I signed the contract. I do not wish to close on the property a...
Mr. Chertock's advice is the best: speak to your attorney or retain one now if you did not already have one. My GUESS is that in Niagara Falls, the contract was probably prepared by the Realtor and does not address the condition of the property other than to say that you were taking subject to the tenants (which it sounds like is what you wanted). Seller's only obligation is PROBABLY to have tenants and he can, therefore, evict the squatters and find new tenants in order to not be in breach of the agreement.
I wonder how much time has elapsed from when the tenant moved out and squatters moved in? It should be a relatively quick process to formalize their eviction. Your local attorney can guide you best. Good luck.See question
A few months ago, I quit my job after several months of being in a hostile environment. I was originally going to leave in January, but I was stringed along by HR to stay until they could come and remedy the situation. Two months later, they came ...
Courts abhor defaults and will, generally, allow a party to reopen a case where they have a meritorious defense and a reasonable excuse for the absence. Count on it being reopened.See question
I was driving rental car while mine was in repair shop and state trooper stopped me in Brooklyn NYC on belt and gave me two tickets one driving without insurance another driving unregistered car. I wasn't aware of any issues and my insurance cover...
I agree with the numerous responses that say the rental company should cover you. I cannot imagine a legitimate rental company allowing this to happen and then to allow you to suffer any consequences - so I wonder whether it's really a rental company or you just "rented" a car from a friend?
Why were you pulled over? The rental company might not be covering you for that. What do you mean by :"they 'broke license plates?

I own a home in Staten Island and it was purchase over 10 years ago while I was married. We are now divorced and the house is mine. I am remarried and the deed still has my former husband's last name. Is it imperative I change it and if so...
I don't necessarily disagree with the responses of attorneys Chertock and Welch. Your question is not worded clearly and I can read it more than one way. They've both assumed title is in both your ex husband's and your names. But you said the house is "mine" and you only said the deed has your former husband's last name. Are you concerned that you're "now known as" another last name and you were the only one on title? Or are you concerned because both yoru husband and you are in title AND you're in a different last name?
If it's simply you in title and your former name, you need not concern yourself. When it's time to sell or refinance, you'll show ID in both names and/or the judgment of divorce that gave you the right to change your name.
If your ex is still in title, then there may be reason to record a deed sooner than later. First, he could die or become otherwise unavailalbe and that could slow you down later if you need to sell o rrefinance. Also, we need to know whether there was consideration (a payment) for the house and whether there were any existing liens (mortgages). There could be transfer taxes due, depending on your facts. And, the late payemnt of those will come at the cost of fines and interest. Finally, if he's in title you subject yourself to liability if he ends up with a judgment against him.
if you're doing it yourself, here's a checklist, but it's fairly easy to make mistakes.
I always thought motorcycles were allowed in the HOV lanes. I googled it and think I am correct there was a case where another Staten Islander got the same ticket I got last week for riding in the HOV lane but federal rules say it's permitted, so...
I also received a ticket 6 weeks ago for riding my motorcycle in the HOV on Staten Island. The Federal rules seem clear but I found the NY traffic rules confusing, at best, so I wrote to and received a written response back from the Regional Director of the NYS Dept of Transportation. She confirmed that motorcycles are, in fact, allowed in the HOV lanes in Staten Island. We'll see how it goes for me in court. If you want a copy of my letter, feel free to contact me privately.See question

A gift in contemplation of marriage (the engagement ring) is returned to the giver if the marriage does not occur. Depending on the value, maybe small claims court (up to $5k) otherwise, civil court. Be prepared, though, for her to counterclaim for any debts she claims you owe.See question

I don't know the answer but moved your question from "lemon law" to "criminal." I think you'll get better responses here.See question

Sorry to hear about this. Not having seen either agreement, I would defer to Mr. Porzio, who certainly knows what he's doing. As far as suing an agency for bullying and false claims, I'm not sure what damages you would be able to establish. You should speak to your attorney about this. Good luck.See question
two lanes ,ones marked left turn, one right I was in left lane waiting at light when I noticed two cars in front of me was a dump truck spilling nasty water or whatever it was coming out of the back so basically I made a right turn to avoid water/...
Mr. Brosnan is correct but note that on Staten Island you have the worst chance of beating a moving violation than anywhere else in New York.See question
