- Q. Citizens Bank won't refund money stolen from my business account, now what can I do?
- A: Hi Richard, Sorry to hear an ex-employee robbed you. Did you check your insurance policy of you are covered for employee dishonesty? Some policies have automatic coverage like $5K-$15K.How were the monies taken, by ACH/wire/check?
- Q. My boyfriend moved in with me in June, we have since broken up. I own my house how can I get him to leave? (I've asked)
- A: Hello, You will need to evict him in accordance with the RI Lanlord/Tenant act.
- Q. My boyfriend's dad is our landlord, his son just got locked up last night and next day he writes a note saying I have to
- A: Hello, Based on the info you provided, your boyfriend’s father would have to evict you and give you proper notice.
- Q. My father is selling his mobile home, agreed on a price, inspection came back and told he needs to deduct $800?
- A: If the agreement was for $26,000 your father should receive the full $26,000 if he does not want to make any concessions. Generally the agreement with have a time period for the due diligence - inspections, etc. during that time if an issue is discovered, the buyer can chose to waive the deficiency and purchase or the buyer can walk away. It's highly unlikely for the contract to contain a provision that would require the seller to pay for correcting the deficiencies that are discovered during the due diligence period. I would carefully review the contract to determine what his rights and obligations are as expressly written in the agreement.
- Q. My husband and I are tenants in common. We have no will. What happens to his portion upon his death.
- A: Hello, I’m sorry that you are going through this difficult time with your husband. I just need to know if your husband has any children and if any of his parents are alive. This will determine what you receive. Thank you. Sincerely, Andrew Bilodeau
- Q. Bought home with big fenced yard for dogs, 5 minutes after closing found out 1/3 of the yard belongs to neighbor. Help.
- A: Hello, There are many components to this That need to be examined before I would be able to give you a correct answer. If during the transaction you purchased title insurance and the owner signed an Affidavit swearing that there are no known encroachments, boundary disputes, etc. you may have a claim. I would recommend obtaining a survey. If the prior owner of your property is actually encroaching on your neighbors and the use of the property that was encroached upon fulfills the elements of adverse possession, you may have a quiet title action to obtain the land in dispute. I would highly recommend seeking a restraining order restraining & enjoining your neighbor from erecting any fences until the determination of property rights can be made.
- Q. what can i due if a tenant use there surcerity deposit as there last month rent and there was damage to the place
- A: Hello, You will need to provide notice to the tenant regarding the damage to the apartment/house with an itemization of the cost to repair and you can pursue those damages in a court action if they are in an amount to be worthwhile. I would also evaluate whether or not the former tenant has the ability to pay. You may be able to obtain a judgment which remains valid for 20 years along with accruing interest but individual with whom you have a judgment against can never pay, then you will be out those funds as well.
