24 Questions Answered
- Q. landlord is selling the house I live in she is trying to let people come in our house to look around we are in Buffalo
- A: Unless your lease says otherwise or there is an emergency situation involved, the landlord is generally allowed to enter into the premise to prospective tenants or purchasers for purposes such as repairs, inspections, installation and showing the house/apt, provided that s/he gave you a "reasonable advance notice (24 hr)" for the upcoming entry. Their visit is also required to be made at a "reasonable" time, which generally means after 9am and before 5pm, exclusive of weekends. So if the broker shows up at 5am with no prior notice with a wall street stranger who has to get to work early and want to see the place quickly before that, their entry may be lawfully rejected by you. Depending on your relationship with the landlord and future intent of staying, etc, you may need to retain a lawyer.
- Q. Was issued a speeding ticket while in city employee uniform & showed bandg. I work in the security deptmt of the MTA
- A: I'm guessing that you got the citation for the speeding in NYC or where your case will be heard in what's called TVB (Traffic Violations Bureau)? Plea negotiation is not allowed in TVB. So in order for you to have no impact on your license, you need to dismiss the case or get a not-guilty verdict which is difficult. Generally, your occupation rarely makes a valid defense to a speeding violation. You presented your ID or badge to the officer, but nonetheless got the ticket. The only option left will be to fight the ticket and get the case dismissed or win at the trial.
- Q. Passed breathalyzer (of course,) failed field sobriety so officer charged me with dui based on that.
- A: More specific factual backgrounds will be necessary for a better answer. Why were you pulled over in the first place? Speeding? A broken tail light? Was this done part of a traffic "checkpoint" stop by the police? Roadblocks? Did you have any prescription medication in your system or with you? I strongly recommend that you retain a local counsel who knows the personality and culture of the local courts of your jurisdiction. Never lightly jump to the reduced charge that may be offered at an early stage of the case since the ramification will be most likely severe. You may want to keep in mind that the State has the burden of proof, and you don't need to prove or disprove anything, and you are entitled to many kinds of information a/k/a "discovery".
