You should contact a lawyer right away. There are numerous technicalities in the way that landlord obligations function with respect to independent contractors such as the plumbers who were working on the building. Or, if there were no plumbers then determining how the water got so hot and how the pressure was so elevated that it sprayed. Did any of your neighbors have issues? How many units at that complex?

I DO NOT accept the fault determination at face value! 25 years ago I tried a case on very similar facts, disabled vehicle partly in road, truck driver, no brakes, terrible tragic injuries. Ultimately The jury was convinced that the truck was at fault, even though police said not!

I have two Judgements against the tenant for the months of Dec 2016 and January 2017. The Feb Rent is not paid either and Rent court date is Feb 17. I am expected to win but no Judgement yet. Parallel to this is RENT ESCROW case moving alon...
The warrant of restitution that was filed with the Sherriff will say which tent and how much needs to be paid. If the tenant pays that rent the eviction will stop and you'll have to wait for the next one.
What county is this? By the way you should have your judgment for more than one month under most circumstances with future rent included. You may not have done this correctly along the way.
The the rent escrow if not dismissed will stop everything. But the tenant will have only a short time to pay all the back rent into escrow and then keep paying.See question
Hopefully this is a simple question. Recently had a small claims case in dist. court where I was given a partial award (about 10% of amount I was seeking). I intend to appeal but have since realized that I did not properly name the defendant busi...
You are going to get a brand new trial at circuit court. If the name is incorrect on the complaint you want to fix this so that the judgment is correct at the end.
File a "motion to correct caption" and explain the things you just said about the name being incorrect but the defendant not objecting.
If the court says yes then continue on. If the court says no then you can file a new lawsuit against the new defendant.
But, there is a complicated set of issues if collateral estoppel and res juducata when you have two similar suits based on identical facts.
Unraveling that will be tricky. If you were still in dustrvu court you could fike the new one and ask the court to consolidate them for trial. But I'm your facts you can't do that because they'd be in different courts. And if you file the new one in circuit court then that one won't be s small claim, it will be on a different more expensive and difficult track for a person representing themselves, and it would take a pretty careful motion to consolidate.
In a perfect world, a lawyer would articulate all of the is s motion to correct the caption, demonstrating to the court how and why the caption should be corrected.
I wish you luck.

The insurance policy you had at the time of the accident should cover your defense. You need to contact them immediately by phone, get s claim number. Send them the suit papers by fax and by certified mail both so you can prove you gave them notice. They should take care of everything.

A lender took a confessed Judgement in 2011. The lender was not interested in taking over the title of the property. It has been five years and the title is still in my name. The property has been boarded up since then. Since the market is re...
You don't need to regain title under the facts you describe. Just know that if you find a buyer, the bank has a lien. Also, you shoujd check the title. If you haven't paid the property tax in five years it may have been sold and retitled at tax sale by now.
You really can't guess about this stuff though. Only a title search reviewed by an attorney can give you the full answer. It can be complicated.See question
He is telling me that the previous use of this lot for parking is not legal although it has been used this way since 1987. This is according to the Land Management Authority. The parking spaces in the downtown historic district add considerably t...
Oh my! This is a very fact specific question. Generally speaking if the easement was properly recorded in the land records and the language was proper it cannot be simply "rescinded" in any logical way.
If the neighbor believes the easement is improper or invalid he or she will probably need to bring a quiet title action and get a court order to cheat the title. Otherwise it's unlikely a title company will insure a sale over the cloud greater by the easement on record.
Additionally beyond the easement you have in writing, at this point having used the property under color of title for so long you may have either an easement by prescription or perhaps outright title by adverse possession.
I would not recommend doing nothing. Since the neighbor has now challenged your right and title you need to talk to a competent real estate litigator and map a strategy. This is not s job for your title attorney who processes transactions, you need to find someone who knows real estate law, zoning etc, and who is a litigation attorney, because you need to either prepare for litigation under these facts and use that preparation to back the other guy down, or you need to actually fight.
It sound as if these spots are worth money, so the other side may be aggressive because it may not only add sales price for them, but it could skso make it Sell more quickly. And everything he wins you lose.

My boss accused me of stealing but he didn't have any proof. The police did an investigation and to find that nothing was stolen from the company.
Your boss can fire you for any reason or no reason unless you work for the government (in which case there may be civil service protections), you have a union contract (in which case that contract may affect y our rights); or you have a written employment contract that sets out terms for termination.
Otherwise, you are employed "at-will" -- meaning that your employer can fire you for a reason, even if it's unfair, and even if the boss is mistaken about some fact.
The major exception to all of this would be if the boss terminated you b/c of you status as a member of a a "protected class" ie. race, sex, religion, national origin etc. In other words, the boss can't fire you b/c of your race, sex etc.
the boss also can't fire you based on retaliation for taking action related to "protected classe" or because your are trying to exercise other legal rights. For example, the boss may not be able to fire you in retaliation for complaining about unpaid wages or overtime; or FMLA benefits usage etc.
Having said that, even if think you don't have a claim for wrongful termination, you should have an employment attorney evaluate your case at least quickly. Sometimes a good attorney can find different types of claims that can filed that you haven't even thought about. For example, if you were not paid correctly, that could lead to a wage claim that could be bigger than a wrongful termination claim.
Roughly 2 out of every 5 workers who are paid hourly are victims of wage theft and have claims. You should contact an attorney who is knowledgeable and willing to take the time to try to FIND a way to recover for you.See question
