Barrister, A tenant had a bike stolen from the garage and is

Hi Barrister,A tenant had a bike stolen from the garage and is now wants (I quote) "something to be done about it"Here's his two E-Mails (from today)1st. E-MailHi Kevin,I went to move my bicycle outta the garage today but it is not there. I've noticed the garage door has been kept open for hours when you have folks working here. I'm sure someone walked in and took the bike during one of these times. What can be done about securing our building more. Do we need cameras? The bike was really expensive. I had a lock on it but someone must have just picked it up from the garage.Cheers,TB2nd. E-MailKevin,My bicycle has been stolen from the garage. Too many times have I come home to the garage being wide open. Only to speak to someone that you have contracted to work who has left the garage open. Or maybe it's the person who is subleting their spot to a non resident. Either way, my $2,000 bike is gone. What can be done as I'm pretty upset about losing it. I have been keeping a record of the garage door being left open should you need that but please do advise.Cheers,TBNot sure how to respond. I don't know if he had a bike at all and the garage door could have been left open but who knows if it's a tenant or contractor (or him). Shouldn't he have Renters Insurance to cover this (or be responsible for taking it into his unit --if it's valuable).

I'm an employee, of a Subcontractor Company in which my company works for a Dealership company, and from time-to-time we work at government installations, facilities/buildings. My question is if the dealership is doing work for the government does that mean that the dealership company doing the work for the government gets government pay rates. And if so is the subcontracting company also entitled to the same government pay rate as the dealership company.

Good Morning.In 2012 my wife and I joined a country club. We paid an initiation fee, in total, for membership in their beach club, and also paid two installments on the "main" club membership. Total payments were about 20kIn less than six months we became very dissatisfied with the club an initated complaints about numerous issues with the general manager (since fired)The complaint cycle with the former GM turned quite unfriendly and she refused to do anything to address our concerns (she was promoted to GM BTW from the position of accountant at the club after her predecessor was fired, she had NO experience in the hospitality industry)Anyhow, we stopped paying initiation fees and dues, and then the club suspended us.We never signed any type of agreement with the club.We want our money back...how do you suggest we proceed?Not in a position at the moment to hire an attorney for this.Thanks!
