Q. Up to July 31, 2017, I was a legal tenant in my apt. I am in the process of buying a house and my lease is up.
A: Look at the closing date provision int he Real Estate Purchase Contract. If it says "on or about" that generally means within 30 days of the date stated, if it says TIME BEING OF THE ESSENCE it means that day only and a Time is of the Essence demand letter should be issued. In any case, in NY you cannot get out of the deal and get your deposit back without the consent of the other party or the expiration of the demand period which flows from the Time is of the Essence date. These are general guidelines, every situation is unique. I'm happy to go over your particular matter for a reasonable consultation fee.
Q. I have a unique opportunity to take ownership of a NYC appartment via a legal will. Can you help me navigate this?
A: Congratulations, all she needs to do is have a valid will with a specific bequest to you of the house. I'd be happy to assist on that front for a reasonable flat fee.
Q. What is the Federal Acquisition Regulation and how does it affect businesses that want to bid on government contracts?
A: It's a set of standards for RFP's, bids , vendors, etc. Yes, you need to follow it. Reach out to me privately if you have more questions.
Q. We have been renting a home for 18 mths now ..6 mths in I found out its in foreclosure proceedings since 2013.
A: Your lease is still good, but the landlord will change to the bank once the foreclosure is finalized. You should not pay rent to the current landlord who is in default to the bank, instead create a separate bank account that is in your control and deposit or transfer the amounts you would otherwise be paying in rent to that account. That is the safest thing you can do to preserve your rights presently, but you may want to retain an attorney in case an eviction proceeding is started or if you need to negotiate with either the current landlord or the bank.
Q. Can a police officer change a view obstruction(coat hanging on coat hook) ticket to a speeding ticket before my trial?
A: Doesn't seem proper. It's one thing to plea bargain down to something, but if you're charged with one thing on the summons / notice the governmental authorities should be bound by that. Now if they issue a second summons post facto that would be something they likely could do and it would be more likely to work for them, but they would have some explaining to do as to why it wasn't issued contemporaneously with the original traffic stop.
Q. How can I stop a curb cut for a private garage which will eliminate street parking spaces on our block?
A: If there were a permit issued there would have had to have been a notice concerning the application, if you missed the notice or didn't respond in time then you can't contest it unless something was defective with the notice. You should have an attorney review that. Now all of that said, the city can authorize / approve of a permit for a private party so long as it is not arbitrary or capricious and serves a legitimate governmental purpose; allowing for private development can certainly serve such a purpose.
Q. 1163A "Improper or unsafe turn/ without signal".
A: Contest it if you feel that it was not correct, but based on what you're saying I am confused as to what transpired and therefore whether you did in fact violate the traffic law in question.
Q. My dad was issued a ticket for property damage and leaving the scene two days after the incident. Can this be dropped?
A: You need to answer / appear for the summons. You can discuss a reduced charge, etc. with the town prosecutor. - Barry
Q. How can I transfer a mortgage to the person whose name is on the deed to the property? Do I need a lawyer?
A: The mortgage is probably with a bank or other secured lender. He can purchase the property from you and get a loan in what essentially would be a refinance of the loan and that would take you off the mortgage. It's best to get a lawyer to do this so that it isn't screwed up and it should cost you under $1,000 by a local attorney.
