10 Questions Answered
- Q. Could a lawyer that practices in probate look over a final probate paper that im an heir in? I think I got robbed...
- A: Absolutely. If you hire a lawyer, they can perform any skills or tasks that you hire them to do. This is why it is imperative to go to a lawyer who practices in your needed area as an expert!
- Q. I used my boss' credit card for a couple of personal purchases. Is that identity theft?
- A: No. If you had no permission, it is plain old regular illegal theft.
- Q. Property deed doesn't match tax record. Complicating sale of home. Is this hard to correct?
- A: No. Your attorney can handle this.
- Q. My brother took over our family business and paid me out.
- A: It depends on what your buyout agreement says. That is the governing document.
- Q. How do I get money owed me out of someone who is bankrupt?
- A: The short answer is you don't. That is the point of bankruptcy -- to not pay your debts. The long answer is that if there is a basis to seek non-discharge of the claim, you can make a complaint to do so.
- Q. My neighbor claims trees on my property are blocking his view
- A: Ignore, unless they overhang his property, in which case he can cut that part down.
- Q. "town and village codes"
- A: It depends on what your contract says. If it is the form, you need to legalize the deck or cancel the contract. This is a common suburban issue. I am not sure why your attorney cannot deal with it.
- Q. Landlord keeping deposits?
- A: You can bring a small claims case. The terms of your lease will govern.
- Q. As a %50 beneficiary of a revocable trust in New York State, what are my rights?
- A: Can you clarify if the Grantor/Trustee is deceased or alive? In other words, do you have a current beneficial interest or do you have a contingent beneficial interest. This very much affects the answer. I would presume that the Grantor is the primary beneficiary. If Grantor has passed away, and you are the beneficiary of the trust, you have a right to a copy oft the trust.
