- Q. How can A company enforce a mutual binding arbitration agreement, If I was terminated two days prior to signing the form
- A: If you have not agreed to an arbitration agreement the company will not be able to compel arbitration.
- Q. I am a visitor at an apartment complex and are demanding medical history to prove need for my service animal. Can they.?
- A: Basically - Yes they can. The issue is not only that your dog is actually a service animal but you must also prove that you have a disability which the dog in some way alleviates. Housing rules are slightly different from ADA rules which deals with public issues.
- Q. Under § 38-12-103. Return of security deposit do they have to send certified mail if they are withholding??
- A: Certified Mail is not required by the statute. But, traceable mail is a good idea for a landlord.
- Q. Does my mom have to sell my dad's estate after probate? He had 3 kids prior to marrying my mom & they then had 4 kids.
- A: It is not likely that a probate under these facts will result in a forced sale. But, if the estate is contentious, i.e. someone wants money, your Mother should hire an attorney to assist and defend her.
- Q. Had an inspection & found out the water heater/furnace weren't new, when the listing said they were. Anything we can do?
- A: If you are using the CO Real Estate Commission Buy/Sell Agreement this form provides you the opportunity to renegotiate or terminate the contract based on the results of your inspection. If you are using a Broker he/she should be able to help you with this, if not you may want to consult an attorney to assist you.
- Q. My cousin is buying 2 homes in Puerto Rico I have my real estate license in Colorado Is there any way for me to get paid
- A: You may be able to work with a PR broker and get paid via a referral.
- Q. Can our landlord give permission for anyone he wants to enjoy the land our house is on?
- A: You will need to review your lease, or have an attorney review your lease and advise you as to your rights in this issue. The primary question will be did you lease the entire 11 acres, if so the landlord has no right to use the land unless he carved our some rights in the lease; or did you only lease the house. You certainly have the right to call the police if people (even the landlord) is trespassing on your property.
- Q. Does Colorado Springs Colorado have only 1 "approved" contract used for buying and selling of real estate?
- A: You can use any contract that you want, but beware you are stuck with the language in the contract however good or bad it may be. If the real estate is valuable I recommend contacting any attorney to assist you on a low flat rate for contract drafting.
- Q. I own a powder coating company. A customer is claiming that a project I powder coated failed in the field.
- A: Hopefully, your contract limits your liability. Seems unlikely that your $300 job created $4,000 in damages. If you get sued you should contact and attorney to defend you.
