Legal Answers
3 Questions Answered
Q. Can a Bank prepare and record an assignment of mortgage on a second loan after seven years from the original date
A: Generally debt and mortgages can be assigned. This is very common.
Q. I want to collect payment for loan made to daughter's former boyfriend and for repair of windshield he broke
A: You would likely have to sue him in small claims court. This may or may not be worth it depending on the amount at issue.
Q. Am I legally responsible for a dog bite that occurred when the landlord had electricians come in to do work?
A: Under the Animal Control Act dog owners are almost always legally responsible for dog bites so long as the dog was not provoked and the victim had a legal right to be where the incident occurred. Renters' and homeowners' insurance usually covers dog bites (though breed restrictions do exist). If you have insurance, report it to your carrier. If you do not have insurance and the victim has threatened to sue, contact an attorney.
