My boss and I got into an argument about work and she took my phone and went through my emails. Does she have the right to do that?
Yes, he does, as well as your work computer and your work email. Be careful what personal business you do on your employer's assets.See question
I was late on my rent but I want to pay it to be current they don't want it an we have a year lease are they breaking the contract
I would suggest a non-legal choice first - communication. Call the landlord, or if it is a management company, visit their office and have a face-to-face discussion. You'd be amazed at what you can accomplish when the lines of communication are open.See question
The wife has given verbal permission to the husband to sign the title and bill of sale (private party sale) so is it legal for me to accept this from them?
Nope, you'd need the wife to sign a power of attorney to the husband so he has legal authority to sign on her behalf.See question
She is not on the lease does not pay rent does not receive mail at the residence and has been there less then 120 days
Another way to get rid of her is to pay her CASH and have her sign a surrender of possession and liability against you. That often works with my non-paying tenants. Yes, I know, you think she doesn't deserve it, but remove your emotions from it and you'll see that it's faster, easier and cheaper than an eviction.See question
My dad has ownership mineral rights on three different properties. He is older now and wants to make sure that these mineral rights go to me after he passes. He is several thousand miles away from me in a different state but I live in the state w...
What you may be looking for is a "beneficiary" deed, which passes ownership at death automatically, similar to a joint tenancy. The other option is to deed you 1% of the property now, making the two of you joint tenants with a right of survivorship (ie, the other 99% goes to you when he dies).
The forms are not terribly complex, but neither would the attorney's fee be for doing something like this, so you may want to seek the advice of an attorney and get a few quotes.See question
My friend and I are starting a business and were told to do a partnership instead of an LLC? Now we find out we needed to do the LLC instead. We delayed our date to Feb 1, so our licence hasn't even started yet. Is my only option to dissolve the p...
The Colorado Secretary of State website is pretty simple to navigate. You want to file a Statement of Conversion from partnership to LLC. It costs $50. However, you should also have what's known as an "operating agreement", which is similar to a partnership agreement amongst the owners ("members") of the LLC. It's a good idea, especially if you have more than one partner (that isn't your wife or husband) to have a lawyer draft the operating agreement to make sure all of the appropriate legal issues are covered.See question
My roommate died and I'm not on lease. Do they have to go to court to make me leave
Yes, even if you don't have a lease, a landlord cannot have you forcibly removed from a property without a legal proceeding.See question
I arrived at apartment management office, as they were closing, they refused my full rental payment and started charging late fees.
This totally depends on the wording in your lease, but I can't imagine tendering payment during legal business hours would be considered "late". If the management office closed at 5p and you showed up at 5:10p, I suppose it's arguable, but I don't see a judge in landlord-tenant court siding with the landlord in this case. Best thing would be to speak with the supervisor of the management company, or, if you can locate the owner, write a letter to them.See question
Were both on the deed. She wants me to sign a quit claim so she has full rights to the proceeds. I told her I would if she signs a document stating I get x amount of dollars at closing.
You are smart to get that in writing, because if the proceeds go to her, you may be out of luck if she walks away. I would suggest you go one step further (in addition to the agreement) and make sure the title company closing the deal has you paid directly out of closing proceeds. If you really want to be "airtight" so to speak, then you can have her sign a promissory note and a deed of trust, which is recorded as a lien against the property. That way, she cannot sell without paying you off. You also should consider the "what if" scenario if the closing does not go through.See question
I would like to sell items online on eBay and Amazon and eventually my own website. I am a one person at home business and would like to know which is better for me, a LLC or an S-Corp. I will go see a lawyer and a CPA (both of which I have not fo...
An LLC can be setup to be taxed as an S corp, which essentially is the same thing as an S corp for tax purposes. However, LLCs are easier to run, less formalities required than a standard S corporation. In NY, however, most people go with S corp vs. LLC (assuming the LLC will be taxed as S corp) because it is MUCH cheaper in NY. NY law requires that you publish a copy of the articles of organization in the newspaper, which in NYC is OUTRAGEOUSLY expensive.
Bottom line, this is more of a CPA question than a lawyer question - seek tax advice before proceeding.See question
