QUESTIONS

  • My father passed away, I'm named the executor of his estate. I currently do not have a will in place for myself. Should I get a will prior to the estate being finalized? In the event that I die before my fathers estate is settled, could I leave what would be my share to another family member?
  • We were paying our electricity through our apartment complex. They would bill it to us each month with our rent with a 50 dollar service fee. Last month they didn't bill us for it and it wasn't in our bill, so we were waiting until they gave us the bill or it was just added on to next months payment and/or rent. They did add it on to the next months rent/bill and we usually pay the 3rd if every month which isn't late. They turned off our power without any notice AT ALL on the second. They didn't give any warning what so ever. Is that legal?!
  • Are the small dance companies in AZ required by law to have their gymnastic spotters certified &/or have first aid certification?
  • The home I rented went into foreclosure and was sold, unbeknownst to me or to the property management company (manager was not the owner). I made 2 rental payments to the management company during the time between the home being sold and us becoming aware of it. I made a CFK agreement with the new owner and requested my deposit, as well as the 2 rental payments back from the manager. They told me to give them a key and they would return my deposit, even though I made it clear I was not moving out. I returned my key and they refused to return my deposit or payments. Do I have any recourse?
  • Nephew and ex sister in law have power of attorney of my brother who had heart attack and stroke. they put joes vehicles in nephews name, and arent paying bills like thdy should be, ie, mortgage is 5000 behind. Running up credit cards, and say theyre going to file bankruptcy on joe Isnt this against the law???
  • I got an eviction notice for non-payment of rent. I filed ch.7 bankruptcy and my rent is due 6/1, but i'm moving out so do i have to pay my 6/1 rent?
  • What is "Fair wear and tear" and how much can a landlord withhold from your refundable security deposit if there were no damages other than "Fair wear tear" or cleaning
  • I have an ongoing problem in my duplex with a black widow infestation. when we first moved in we had to kill many black widows that were in the backyard with a hammer. The next summer they returned, this time also in the garage and a bedroom closet. I notified the landlord and she provided us with store-bought insect spray for us to use ourselves. I used the spray and a few months later they have returned again. I am very concerned about being bit as well as the safety of my dogs. Since the store-bought spray didn't work doesn't it fall to the landlord to provide pest control? Esp. Safety wise
  • Is there a 3 day release from jail if not charged rule? But if the jail lists charges on the inmate, doesn't that mean that they have been charged? And if the preliminary hearing is scheduled, doesn't that mean that they have been charged, but not necessarily indicted? On major methamphetamine trafficking charges, isn't it unlikely someone would get out on the above-mentioned 3 day "rule"? Without a bond? Just turned loose?
  • We had a a verbal agreement to allow our son to attend a school out of district as long as my ex would take him to school on a daily basis..he got upset with me and broke the verbal agreement two months before school was out i was forced to make a temporay change in my work schedule to allow my son to finsih up the school year.next year i want to place him in the school which he is suppose to attent which is in our district and two blocks away from each of our homes. can he fight me on this we have joint legal custody ..will sedning him a certified letter making him aware of the change be ok?
