Q. we have a dog in our rural area that has killed several livestock and pet
A: Sue the owner in small claims court and ask for the reasonable value of your livestock. Best of luck.
Q. I also just had surgery and can't be lifting things yet
A: If your landlord did not fix the house problems such as bad plumbing and holes in the wall, ten your landlord may be in violation of the law. Please consult with a Tenant Lawyer regarding this issue. Best of luck.
Q. Who can i call to get help
A: You can call any lawyer in your area that practices landlord/tenant. Best of luck.
Q. I was served with a three day notice and a 60 day notice in the back of the three day notice and know I was served with
A: A lot of landlords are evicting tenants right and left due to a few days of back rent. Unfortunately, unless you have any issues related to warranties of habitability, i.e. housing issues such as: rat invasions, cockroaches, bedbugs, broken stairs, lack of heaters, bad wiring, sewer back-ups, leaky plumbing, etc., which the landlord has not fixed on a long time, you may end up without a place to live. Call a Tenant lawyer to help you if you have any of these issues. Best of luck
Q. What, if anything must a landlord provide to tenants in case of displacement due to fire, in a multi-unit dwelling?
A: The landlord should consult with his insurance company to find out whether his policy can provide temporary shelter for the displaced families. The benefits would be the difference of the normal rent and the rent for the new dwelling. Since the damage was caused by unlicensed contractors, the owners may be on the hook if they knowingly hired said contractors.
Q. is it legal for my landlord to charge me for his rejecting my rent payments even thought the money was in my account
A: If you wrote a check to your landlord but there were no funds available in your account when his bank attempted to collect the funds from your bank account, then his bank would charge him a fee. This charge is an amount that your landlord would pay automatically. However, if the reason why he is being charged is your lack of funds which can occur in a microsecond, then you would be responsible. It is harsh, but that is the way he would see it. if you do not pay, your landlord may decide to initiate an unlawful proceeding sometime in the future; and that would be a lot more expensive, Best of luck!!!
Q. What can i do when a housemate screams at me and cusses me out in front of my 4yr old son?
A: This is a very tricky question. You seem to meet the elements of a DV case, however, you are not married to the housemate and you do not have an intimate relationship that would qualify him as a boyfriend or living companion. The law in this case is that you may have to file a civil restraining order based on the facts stated by you. If he is verbally abusing you or your child, the Court may recommend a restraining Order or jail time. It is based on facts and proof. Additionally, this type of case is very difficult because you are living in the same household. Meanwhile, write a letter t the Landlord. and keep copies. Do not engage in conversations with this person and try to avoid being in his presence. Do not be afraid of calling the police. Best of luck
Q. I live in the state of California and my landlord has exposed me and my daughter to mold.
A: Yes. You can sue the landlord for failure to provide a/c on hot days. It would help if you could provide medical records of your daughter elevated temperature and also documentation that you notified your landlord of the several property violations. You have technical violations but the damages recovery is based on the severity of the injuries suffered and proof that you can provide at trial. IIt helps if you have City inspector reports and medical records. Best of luck.
Q. A dog was running across the street without its leash and got ran over by my back tire.
A: It is a sad tragedy and there is no way to make the dog owner feel better. only time will do that. Researchers say that losing a dog is like having a family member dying on you. Show compassion for the loss. Do not blame the dog owner and express your sorrow in a manner that is not confrontational. Explore with your car insurance company whether they can handle it. Do not talk to the dog owner and do not make any offers to settle. If the car insurance refuses to do it. Then talk to your house insurance agent and ask them whether you ae covered for accidentally hitting the dog. My feeling is that the dog owner is in pain and feeling guilty for letting the dog run outside without a leash. However, your arguing with him is not going to help things. Best of luck.
