2 Questions Answered
- Q. The previous owner of our property stole land from our neighbor to expand driveway 10 years ago who legally owns It now
- A: Adverse possession is recognized under Connecticut Law and requires a 15 year period, pursuant to Connecticut General Statutes Section 52-575. Adverse possession is a method of acquiring title to real estate, accomplished by an open, visible, and exclusive possession uninterruptedly for a 15-year period. Do not let your neighbor cut into your property, call the police if she does and explain to them this is a civil matter and your neighbor needs to bring you to court, she cannot dig into your driveway.
- Q. I am getting calls from a company that bought a 11 yr old car loan. trying to sue me for intent to fraud
- A: This loan is likely barred by the statute of limitations for fraud which is three years. Also the statute of limitations in Connecticut for debt collection is 6 years. HOWEVER, DO NOT ACKNOWLEDGE TEH DEBT OR MAKE A PAYMENT ON THE DEBT, because that will start the statute of limitations all over again and they will have grounds to sue you. Fraud is very difficult to prove and you should probably not discuss anything with them other than telling them to cease and desist from calling you. Things a Debt Collector Cannot Do. There are several things that a debt collector cannot do under the FDCPA. They cannot: Call you before 8 am or after 9 pm, based on your time zone Call you at work, provided the debt collector is aware your employer doesn’t approve of these phone calls Harass, oppress, or abuse you Lie to you or falsely imply that you have committed a crime Use unfair practices in an attempt to collect a debt Conceal his or her identity on the phone Disregard a written request from you to cease further contact You can file an online complaint here. https://www.consumerfinance.gov/complaint/
