    wish there was something we could do to hold them responsible for non-disclosure.


    There isn't. You had every opportunity to do a thorough inspection of all the nooks and crannies, but you didn't.


    Two lessons:


    1 - Always inspect thoroughly.


    2 - Never believe anything anybody tells you when they are trying to sell you something. Even your buyer agent is going to lie to you to make sure the sale goes through without a hitch. Any belief that a buyer's agent represents the buyer's interests is delusional.




  2. It's not your appellate decision that's costing you jobs, it's you record as an habitual offender. Employers see that record on the criminal background check, they don't go looking for appellate case decisions.


    As for your appellate decision being used in law schools, it's one of hundreds, maybe thousands, that are used as case studies in law schools.

    was told that it would be removed


    "I was told" is the most dangerous phrase in the English language.

    The plates and sn come back with no owner.


    Then report it to the appropriate agency for removal.


    Or, keep it and hope nobody claims it. Make sure you make a photo inventory before you touch anything, just in case.

  4. No, you don't own it and you have to be real careful about trying to own it, lest the rightful owner come after you.


    If the property was not owned by the seller then the seller could not convey it to you.


    Which begs the question, why didn't you know about it before you bought the property or during the inspection contingency period or before close of escrow. Didn't you bother to inspect the property?


    Virtually every city and county in the country has an ordinance addressing abandoned vehicles on private property. Look up yours and follow the instructions on reporting it and having it removed.

    In fact, if you were contractually obligated to pay it and you didn't causing the loss of the home the estate may well have a claim against you.


    For the unpaid rent, not for the loss of the home. It would have been up to the owner to enforce the rental agreement while alive. If he didn't, there might not be an actionable claim for rent (laches).

    Reviewing any documents issued for what? What am I looking for?


    Plan documents. Memos. Correspondence.


    Anything that might make your benefits a contractual obligation of the employer.


    You might also talk to an attorney who specializes in ERISA, the federal law regarding retirement plans.


    Seems to me that there must be something that protects you from losing benefits that you have already acquired. I could be wrong.

  7. The best answer should come from the disability agency.


    However, my guess is that he not file a second claim until the WC doctor releases him for work. Then, if he can't work because he is not yet recovered from the surgery, it would be time to file the second claim.


    Again, that's just my guess. Bob needs to confirm that independently of strangers on the internet.

    They told my mom she needed to open an Estate account and she would need an EIN before they would cash it.  Is the bank correct in having her open an account and obtaining an EIN? 




    Takes a few minutes on the IRS website.

    Now my questions are shouldn't that house actually have been placed in the probate?


    Yes, if the house was solely in your Dad's name.


    No, if the house was owned jointly with right of survivorship. Read the deed.

    I am also curious why that wasn't done when my dad died and she, with an attorney, filed whatever paperwork they had to file for probate and showing she is the executor of the will?


    Only your Mom can answer that question.

    I had been making the house payments


    Were you paying the mortgage company or your Mom? If you were paying the mortgage company properly, the house shouldn't have gone to foreclosure.

    the money from that insurance  refund check in my dad's name should be mine


    No. It belongs to your Dad's estate, which appears to need probate before you get anything.


    You can check with the probate court to see if probate was opened at some point. If it was, the will should be in the case file. If it wasn't you can open probate under intestacy and you may be able to claim a share of his estate, if there is anything worth claiming.

    4 months into retirement the company is no longer going to offer these benefits as of Dec. 31,2019


    To you or to current employees? That's the first question. Check it to see if you misunderstood something.


    If, indeed, they are discontinuing your benefits, you will need a thorough review of any documents issued by the employer regarding the retirement benefits. Obviously, we can't do that from here.

    I appreciate you attacking my disciplinary style, but maybe your ignorance caused you to miss the intent of my question....try re-reading it,


    You try re-reading it.


    Your questions:

    Does anyone have experience with something like this?  What recourse do I have?  Do I need to have the courts step in?

    The major issues with this is that my kids then have their friends at my house, are not supervised, eat all of my food, leave my house a mess, etc... 


    And you called your children's behavior the "major issues."


    So I addressed your "major issues."

    Yes, I have lots of experience with something like that. It's called disciplining your children. You should try it. There's no excuse for their behavior when they are home alone. Since you are the custodial parent and they live there, there is plenty of punishment you can dish out. As long as you accept the behavior unchallenged you have nothing to complain about.


    PS: Nothing wrong with your ex dropping your kids off when you aren't home. They are certainly old enough to be on their own.

    They can't just tell you wrong information, allow you to base your decision on that information, then go back and say "oops.....sorry", can they?


    Obviously, they can because they did. Sorry, but you made the mistake of relying on what you were told on the phone without verifying it by reading your 401(k) plan and loan documents.


    The loan repayment requirement is based on the IRS 401(k) rules.

    Therefore my question is, are homing pigeons raced for sport considered "fowl" in the eyes of the law in Tennessee and or Blount County?


    What were your reasons for buying into an HOA?


    I'm wondering what was so attractive to you that you willingly gave up your freedom to use your property as you wished.

    Cant, im still technically employed.


    You're not. "Indefinite unpaid leave" means you've been laid off, fired, canned, given the axe. It's also a scam that employers pull so that naïve people don't file for unemployment compensation. You've already lost a great deal of money by believing it. File now.


    You should have been looking for another job from the getgo.


    That you haven't gotten any answers speaks volumes. Nobody wants it.





  15. Signal Hill, I see that the link I posted is no good. Try the following link and click on "View Code."

    the police are likely exercising their discretion not to deal with it


    The abandoned vehicle code refers to a "city abatement officer" whoever that may be. Up to the poster to figure out who that is.



  16. You are trying very hard to make this the crime of the century and the perpetrator public enemy number one.


    Neither is the case. It's a violation of Signal Hill's (if that's where you live) city ordinances.


    See Title 10 Chapter 10.46 and learn what you can do about it.
