Legal Answers
Q. Who pays for repairs to upgraded driveway easement?
A: Attorney Keshvarian is absolutely correct. I will only add is that you should factor the cost of paying a lawyer to litigate versus the cost of repair. Consider sitting down with the neighbor and discuss the cost of repair (get estimates before the sit down) and try to determine the cost to each of you. Involving attorneys will only increase the cost. If the cost of repair is under $12,500, then maybe consider a small claims case if you are not able to come to an agreement as to the repair amounts.
Q. California Code which requires seller of residential property to disclose to buyer that the property is within an HOA.
A: Civil Code Section 4525 requires an owner of a property within an association to provide various items of information and documents to a prospective purchaser of the owner's property “as soon as practicable before the transfer of title or the execution of a real property sales contract.” (Civ. Code § 4525(a).)
Q. Hello, I feel I was unfairly treated by a clinical research company which I participated as a healthy volunteer
A: Based on the facts you state, i do not see any legal grounds you would be able to pursue against this company. In a clinical trial, the company chooses its participants base don their own criteria, and they do not promise nor are they obligated to use any participant that wants to participate. It would be extremely difficult if not impossible for you to prove they discriminated against you (within the legal meaning of discrimination).
