To Whom it may concern,, and I live in a gated community

To Whom it may concern,My name is***** and I live in a gated community called Nees Park Place in Fresno, California. We have lived in this home for almost 20 years. We have never had any issues or complaints until recently. Last Saturday, May 22nd, 2017, my gardener brought his 16-year-old son to help him with his duties at my house. The gardener knows to fully close the gate so that my dogs can't get out. Unfortunately, the son left the gate open and two of my dogs got into the front yard. When I realized my two dogs had gotten out I immediately proceeded to get them back into my house. One of my neighbors who routinely walks her dogs in front of my house told me that I had to, “Put my dog down because I can't control him.” She said that this was the second time she felt threatened by my dog and she would report it to the community and my dog will be taken away from me. My dog barking at another dog and their owner doesn't constitute my dog being punished. My dog hasn't caused any physical damage to any other dog nor person that requires any veterinarian or doctor.My dogs are American Bullies. They are a relatively new breed between English Bulldogs and American Bull Terrier. None of my dogs are over 14 inches in height. They are considered exotic and are considered show quality dogs. Two of the three dogs are Nationally Registered Service Dogs. My first dog named “Sweetie” has been in training for almost three years now. She is a registered Service Dog and also a part of the program called Therapy Dog International. This is a very high honor for any dog and only the “Top 5 percent) of dogs even pass. Sweetie, my first dog is the mother to my other two boy dogs. Their names are ***** ***** Panda. Blaze has been identified as the dog that I can't control and is the target of unfair abuse by my uneducated neighbors. Unfortunately for some reason my dogs are to intimidating to look at and are being unfairly judged.Blaze has been my Nationally Registered Service dog over almost 6 months now. He, like his mother before him, passed the prestigious Service Dog Test. Blaze takes part in competitive training 4 days a week. Some of his accolades include 2 AKC Titles for First Level Obedience Competition and Basic Obedience Exercises. In total, Blaze has participated in 6 AKC dog shows and he has always placed in the top three.What I need to know is my legal rights with regards ***** ***** my service dogs as well as my home from people who may try to bring unnecessary threats to my well-being or my dogs. I am a retired teacher and need my service dogs to help with my daily life. I have been diagnosed with lupus and fibromyalgia so having service dogs makes living much easier. My well-being depends on protecting my family and my dogs are family. Please advise me on my legal rights and how to proceed. I look forward to hearing back from you as soon as possible.Thank you,CustomerJA: Because real estate law varies from place to place, can you tell me what state this is in?Customer: Fresno, CAJA: Has anything been filed or reported?Customer: I was told, They did.JA: Anything else you want the lawyer to know before I connect you?Customer: There is a person who work for police.

My ex-husband managed a project to split one bathroom into

My ex-husband managed a project to split one bathroom into two bathrooms in the second floor of my raised ranch house about 10 years ago. We got divorced 6 years ago and I'm having a hard time maintaining the house so I'm going to sell it, however since a building permit wasn't requested prior to starting the construction I'm going through the whole exercise of it. The mechanical inspector stated that the center of the toilets have less than the required 15" on each side. The toilet in one of the bathrooms has 12" & 14.5" from the surrounding walls, and the other toilet has 12" & 40". The inspector suggested that I file request for modification but I'm not sure how to answer the following sections of the Request for Modification Form: 19.

I am in the process of buying a house in New York State, and

I am in the process of buying a house in New York State, and the seller has proposed that I pay for all closing costs. The way it was phrased was:"I will pay my attorney fees and title clearance.All other expenses with regard to closing would be your responsibility including the transfer tax of $4 per $1,000. "When asked to explain, she mentioned:"Typical closing cost for the seller are their attorney, title, NYS transfer tax and broker commission. I would pay my attorney and title clearance. You would pay the NYS transfer tax $4 per $1,000. You can find this information on line."There is no broker involved (no sellers broker, either), so what exactly would I be responsible for?

My husband and I own a 300 cow dairy herd in the state of

My husband and I own a 300 cow dairy herd in the state of Minnesota and are a C corp. We store and feed out of harvestore silos. On March 19th of this year we had a collapse of the top 25' of one of our 90' harvestore silo's. We have determined the cause of this to be that the contents created a frozen crust to form at the top and as the feed was taken out on a daily basis an estimated 20' cavity formed. The top sheets of steel are of a lighter weight and the grain adhering to the sides on top thawed at a faster rate than the lower portion causing the grain to fall on the crust causing the grain to shift faster than the vent could handle causing a vacuum that resulted in the top 25 feet collapsing inward all the way around. The structure is sound so as not to fall to the ground but needs to be repaired at a cost of up to $85,000. We carry insurance to cover catastrophic events such as this and this silo is covered to that $ amount. The insurance adjuster talked to both my husband and myself before he came out to asses the damage. On the day he came he happened to be there at the same time as 2 employees of the local company we asked to come and assess and give a repair quote. This adjustor denied our claim stating we do not have coverage for silo "implosion". We are covered for " collapse caused by weight shift of contents", so feel that he is playing with the meaning of words. This particular adjuster has also done some things we have documented that we feel are unethical, such as manipulating conversations to try and coerce my husband, myself, and the 2 Genex employees to phrases that would work into his denying the claim. When we received the second denial letter we asked the Genex employee to review that letter, the adjuster stated in his letter that Genex indicated the reason and concurred with his findings. The genleman stated that was completely false and that each time the adjuster attempted to get him to commit to a reason he rebuffed him stating he was here to give a repair quote not determine the reason the repair was needed.My husband and I feel we are entitled to coverage due to the fact that it was the weight shift of the contents that caused the vacuum that caused the collapse. Do you think we are correct and should we seek legal council?
