  1. Why is it no one identifies their state anymore?

    I am reading your story and don't have any idea why the house was demolished. Also, who owns the house and who was living there?
  3. I don't see any civil rights violations. I see lots of supervisor-worker conflict and lots of passive agression on your part. It appears you were gettingyour vehicle to leave thhe job site after you were terminated, I would agree you were not an employee when the door struck you in the back. I would not take your case.
  4. You and your ex? apparently entered into a joint venture that involved proposed flipping of a piece of realty. In that transaction it is unlikely, although not impossible, that your ex? and you entered into a real estate agency agreement. That means she was (probably) not acting as your agent in the transaction. What that means, in my opinion, is that she was not acting as a licensed real estate broker or agent with respect to you. Therefore, the fact that she is a licensed real estate professional is probably irrelevant. The real estate licensing board should not be involved in this situation at all. But, you might still file some sort of complaint if you can prove she lied to you.
  5. I'm trying to wrap my head around the question. The doctor agreed that she will not treat any patient she saw during her employment unless it involves patients suffering from an acute problem (which would obviously go away in a reasonable period of time). But she intends to solicit patients she has seen during the course of her employment. Why would she solicit patients she has covenanted not to treat?
  6. The validity of the landlord's remedy depends on whether the tenency is less than for one year and whether the notice given is the second notice within a year. If a tenant was served with a previous notice to pay or quit , the second notice is final and cannot be remedied by payment of the rent. See 704.17(1p)(b). The effect of the second notice is to terminate the tenancy without recourse. So, if this is the second 14 day notice, it is appropriate to order the tenant to vacate and to file the necessary court documents to enforce the eviction the next day.
  7. Proof that the signatures on the will are not the signatures of the persons who are alleged to have signed it; proof that the testator was incompetent at the time he or she signed it, including that he or she did not know the identity of his or her probable heirs and/or that he or she was not aware of the extent and nature of his or her estate; proof that the testator's willingness to sign the will was overcome because he or she was under duress; proof there was a later will that revoked the purported will.
  8. Maybe they have an agreement with PRL or maybe here is little or no possibility of confusion between their logo and the PRL logo. What is the point of trying to make your argument here? We have warned you that you may back into chainsaw if you produce clothing with a logo resembling the Ralph Lauren logo or use the word "polo" on clothing not related to an actual polo club. If you think we are wrong, go ahead. BTW, I would be interested in your claim that the african-american community is a major player in the Ralph Lauren Polo demographic.
  9. I was speaking as a realist. According to Wikipedia, at present there are 744 people on death row in California but the last execution was in 2006.
  10. No, it is more commonly referred to as "disparaging remarks" and is quite common in divorce and custody cases. In the course of the custody proceeding, you should ask the judge to order both parties to refrain from making disparaging remarks about the other. If it continues keep a diary of the remarks and, if they interfere with your relation with your child, return to court and ask your spouse to be held in contempt with your documented evidence.
  11. California no longer has a death penalty for anything.
  12. Why are you concerned about whether the landlord makes repairs if you are no longer living on the property? Certainly if the landlord does not make the repairs she cannot withhold your security deposit - unless she is hoding it for unpaid rent.
  13. Just a minute here. Your post is a little confusing. Please verify the following: 1. Title to the house was solely in your father's name at the time of his death. 2. At the time of his death, your father and mother were not married. 3. your father had a will. 4. Your father's will was executed (signed) after your father and mother split. 5. Your mother was the executrix of your father's will. 6. Your father's will left the house in question solely to your mother. 7. Your mother did not complete the steps necessary to change the title to the house to her prior to the foreclosure. 8. On the day of the foreclosure your mother signed a document stating that she was in fact the person who would be the successor in interest to your father's title to the property. 9. Your mother is not contesting the validity of the foreclosure. The reason I am confused is that if your father and mother were not married at the time of his death you would inherit the property unless the will left the property to your mother. I am also concerned that a will signed before a husband and wife divorce, is revoked by the divorce as if the parties to the will had predeceased each other. However, you must realize that any objection the real party in interest to the property may raise, is only a delaying tactic until the party in interest makes all the payments due on the mortgage.
  14. Unfortunately, your medical condition is irrelevant. As a non-owner you are in no position to contest any irregularity in the foreclosure. You are simply a tenant and probably a tenant at sufferance. That means you are only a tenant until the owner decides to terminate your tenancy, which will probably not be long. You need to focus on finding someplace else to live.
  15. I don't know what the practice is in South Carolina. In Virginia, the "title search" typically only involved examining the grantee/grantor indexes (sometimes the will books) to determine whether the seller was the title owner and whether there were any encumbrances on the property. The examination only went as far back as the length of the statute of limitation on title challenges. The examiner also examined the tax department records to establish the taxes had been paid and determine the current tax obligation. I am not aware of any title examination that would have produced copies of any deeds or other documents. There was not generally any formal documentation of the title search aside from some notes by the title examiner. As a practical matter, there are usually very few title insurance companies in any area. Those that do cover the area normally have sufficient internal records of prior title searches and insurance sufficient to allow them to do primarily in house searches followed up with "title bring downs" to bring them up to date. In real estate transactions I was familiar with, the attorney (or settlement agency) that prepared the deed did not perform or review any title examination. The only entity concerned about the chain of title was usually the title insurer. Any exceptions would be included in the title insurance.
  16. Previously practice in the courts in Northern Virginia for over thirty years.  Practiced as a sole practitioner involving primarily: wills and estates; domestic relations;  bankruptcy; personal injury; real estate litigation.  Currently retired and living in Florida.

  17. It seems as if no one identifies their state. Anyway, your only alternative is to sue in small claims court to recover your down payment.
  18. Sorry about that. Please start your own thread. The one you posted to ended seven years ago.
  19. Folks generally establish residence in Florida because there is no state income tax- at least that's why I did. Also, there is no state safety automobile inspection or emissions control requirement. as there are in Virginia. There is no annual personal property tax on vehicles. So, what the OP can, and should do, is find a placeto live in Florida for a term greater than six months, , apply for Florida license plates and driver's license, and claim Florida as his or her primary residence. Unless the state income tax bill would be very large, I doubt the alternate residence state will actually require proof that the person actually resided in Florida for more than six months.That's not legal advice. I agree that making a revocable trust does not depend on residence.
  20. Since the thread ended almost 5 years ago (June 5, 2014) I don't understand the need for your post.

  22. We, of course, have no way of knowing why your supervisor called you out into the hallway. Obviously, she believed you had done something wrong. You believed you didn't. Without knowing anything more about the situation than that, it is unclear what anyone on the board could possibly suggest.
  23. Only the prosecutor can answer that question.
