Legal Answers
Q. What obligations does a self storage facility have to the renter if his/her unit was burglarized?
A: Did you have insurance? Do they? Check that first. In the absence of insurance there's probably a negligence standard to exercise reasonable care. You likely signed a contract that likely has a provision disclaiming liability. But you may want to retain someone to review the agreement to see if there may be liability, and discuss what the storage place did or didn't do.
Q. Lease due to expire on June 8, 2024. I notified that i was moving out on my date of expiration and was told i have to pa
A: As long as they're able to re lease your unit (and they should be taking appropriate steps to re lease it) then they should not be able to collect that. But you're likely going to have to try to negotiate that I think... this is more of a landlord tenant issue. You may want to hire an attorney to write a demand letter after you know the full amount they're trying to withhold.
Q. Will I get a ticket for passing this school bus?
A: In Virginia the bus has to be stopped when you pass it. It doesn't sound like you committed a violation. If the bus was already stopped when you passed they can use a camera ticket (traffic infraction) in the mail but the bus would need to be stopped with the sign out before the pass. Or you can get a ticket for reckless driving if an officer witnessed you passing a stopped bus but they would have had to initiate the stop right then. It sounds like you're fine, nothing to worry about.
