Legal Answers
Q. I need to know how to get my stolen cat returned. Unfortunately, it’s not taken as seriously as, say, a car.
A: If he will not voluntarily return the cat, you will likely have to file a civil lawsuit in your local County Circuit Court asking a Judge to order the return of the cat.
Q. Comm- tenant rights/sublessor refuse written lease but a year-to-year agreement increases each yr
A: If you have agreed to a commercial rental without a written lease, it must be on a month to month basis. Among other things, that means the landlord can change the terms, space, rent, etc. at anytime with 30 days advanced notice. If you want something more stable, either get a fixed term written lease or relocate elsewhere.
Q. Fallen down trees in the road
A: I am not clear what the responsibilities are for the arbor maintenance between the homeowner and an apparent HOA, but whichever is, they may be liable depending upon the details. Much depends upon why the tree limb fell - was it rotted out? or did a storm severe it somehow? I would start by seeing if your auto insurance or the homeowner's insurance will handle the claim(s) and go from there. You of course will want copies of all the relevant emails if you can get them.
