Q. How do I start a case with former employer who left owing me money and money from my 401k?
A: If the employer was based in Maryland (or the work was performed in Maryland) then the employer would need to follow Maryland's wage and hour laws. There are two ways to proceed with unpaid wage claims in this state - one can either file a complaint and let government officials review/investigate OR one can directly sue the employer and demand the unpaid compensation. Although the general rule is that each side pays for their own attorney fees, in these types of cases a winning employee can shift attorneys fees to the employer. Note that there are a number of different legal theories that may apply depending on your particular case. I encourage you to promptly seek legal advice about the specifics of your situation. The law has strict timelines for asserting claims. You are welcome to contact my firm for a no cost initial phone consult of up to 10 minutes or contact another firm of your choosing.

Q. How do I remove md state tax lien
A: The only way to remove a lien is by satisfying or discharging the debt. One can contact the creditor (here apparently the State) to see about working out a compromise or settlement if compelling reasons exist. In Maryland one would contact the Comptroller's office for state tax matters.
Q. In the state of Maryland can a wife buy a house on her own without her husband having anything to do with the loan proc.
A: Yes. There is no legal requirement that a spouse join in a loan or purchase (note that a particular lender may set its own policies as far as qualification goes).
Q. Is there anyway to reinstate a corporation in GA after the 5 year mark ....my 5 yr mark has pass by 8 months
A: This question was posted in Maryland. If your corporation exists in this state (MD), then reinstatement is a matter of paying back personal property returns and filing Articles. If in another state, you may wish to contact the Secretary of State or equivalent state corporation division.
Q. I need to file an amendment and restatement of charter for a MD corporation
A: Either title would probably be accepted by the SDAT but the first is more accurate. Yes, if a second amendment / restatement the word Second should be included.
Q. How often can a landlord raise the rent?
A: Generally at the end of any negotiated term (e.g., if a 1 year lease, every year; if a 1 month lease every month). Proper notice must of course be given and retroactive increases would be problematic. Infrequently a lease might be governed by rent control laws that limit increases but ordinarily in Maryland a landlord can increase rent for any new term at its own discretion.
Q. Can a lanldord in the State of Maryland ask a tenant questions relating to his property without it being considered
A: The question is not clear. A landlord can generally ask any kind of reasonable question related to his/her own property. The post does not give enough information to know where the harassment concern comes into play. Note that a tenant does have the right to quiet enjoyment of the property so that if the LL questions are delivered in person or the landlord continually visits at unreasonable times or without proper notice such activity could raise issues.
Q. I am a tenant in a commercial building the landlord won't split the electric meter. the bldg. is 13000 sq ft I use 3k
A: Commercial leases are generally left up to the parties' own negotiation. Utilities should definitely be a topic addressed by the lease. What does the lease say? Did you agree to a certain formula for determining electric usage? If the lease requires the LL to get separate meters then a tenant could certainly hold the LL to the lease terms. If the lease is silent, it may be difficult to force sub metering so long as the LL has some plausible basis for the allocation.
Q. How do i get a bogus lien off of my present house from a former landlord?
A: If the lien is from a judgment, the only ways to remove short of discharging in bankruptcy involve either paying off the judgment or getting the court to invalidate it. The last option is rarely available and it is extremely difficult to toss an enrolled judgment. In special circumstances a judgment debtor can seek to have the judgment tossed or "vacated" but this requires proof of fraud, mistake or irregularity and the courts are loathe to revisit after a trial has resulted in judgment and the appeal window has passed.
