Legal Answers
24 Questions Answered
Q. Connecticut residential lease holdover- Do the terms of the expired lease carry over into a month-to-month tenancy?
A: A standard clause of most written leases provides that the terms of the written lease continue if the tenant holds over as a month to month lease. Check your lease to look for this clause.
Q. Connecticut residential lease- tenant signing and their attorney as trustee
A: The attorney is signing in his capacity as trustee of the trust so he is not personally responsible the trust is. If you had to pursue the trust for payment you would name the attorney as trustee as defendant in a collection suit to obtain a judgment against the trust.
Q. Can I either leave my federal student loans out of chapter 7 bankruptcy or keep paying them so they are not defaulted
A: Unless your eligible for a hardship discharge which is a very difficult to obtain if you are currently employed which you appear to indicate you are as a teacher your student loans will not be discharged so you should continue to pay, As attorney Winterstein indicated you have to list all debts on your schedules not just debts that are eligible for discharge and you also want to list them to present a full picture of your financial situation and list your student loan payments on your expense schedule to reflect the burden of paying them.
