    Landlord Responsibility

    Here's a link to an explanation of The Alaska Landlord & Tenant Act http://www.law.alaska.gov/pdf/consumer/LandlordTenant_web.pdf I found the first, third, and fourth paragraph on page 15 interesting while pondering your situation. Here's a link to the actual act...

    Landlord Responsibility

    Maybe what state? Do you have a lease? If so, how long? Why are repairs needed? Did you request the repairs? Did you create the need for repairs?

    Help Needed - German USA Citizenship Question - American Citizen

    You need a German immigration lawyer. Here's why: If the roles were reversed, and you were both German citizens, you were a dual citizen and you travel to the US intending to get US Citizenship for your spouse. When your wife/fiance enters the country on a visa waiver, she has just committed...

    Traffic citation in Italy

    Probably, but many debtors are judgment proof, or at least extremely difficult to collect from. He also would have had to pay the attorney out of pocket and hope to collect. He could easily racked up five figures in legal fees and costs chasing $800. So if he wins, he'll get a judgment for...

    Help Needed - German USA Citizenship Question - American Citizen

    US Law does not require she relinquish her US Citizenship upon becoming a German Citizen, but German Law may require she do that.

    Traffic citation in Italy

    I believe it will be difficult for a collection agency to prevail in court on this one. They will either have to prove that you committed the offense, or prove that an Italian court determined that you committed the offense and that you are responsible to pay the $450. They could sue you in a...

    Driving without Registration

    Wait a minute - I lied. That was the three cars before the last one. The last one I bought, the seller told me it was drivable with a battery. Being the trusting soul that I am, I brought a trailer with me (and a battery). An in a shocking development, it wouldn't start. The ECM (computer) was...

    Driving without Registration

    It's not too far outside the box (for me). The last three used cars I've bought, I paid for and took the keys. Got plates and returned a few days later to pick up car. There's a slight risk that the seller will 'steal' the car from me, but since I have the title, all they could do is bring it...

    Driving without Registration

    Option 3: Tow the vehicle to PA Option 4: Ask the dealer if you can drive the car to PA using his dealer plates? (Highly unlikely) Option 5: Pay for car. Take title and keys with you. Leave car parked at dealer's lot (with permission). Properly register car in PA. Return to MA with PA plates and...

    No temporary tags in Mass.

    Driving without Registration

    If you get stopped in MA, the car WILL be impounded, and will not be released until you show up with proof of insurance and registration (and $$$ for towing and storage). You can probably show your proof of insurance to the judge, but I doubt the police will take your word for it that a vehicle...

    Ford motor Credir

    I dunno. If you're in Massachusetts, there are specific items that they cannot take, even with an execution, such as The bibles, schoolbooks and library used by the debtor , 2 cows, 12 sheep, 2 swine and 4 tons of hay , 1 pew occupied by the debtor or the debtor's family in a house of public...

    HOA Transfer Fee

    Is that an answer to the first, or second, question?
