I am wondering if I have a case to go after the water

i am wondering if I have a case to go after the water company because they denied a claim we put in to themJA: Since laws vary from place to place, what state is this in?Customer: pennsylvaniaJA: Have you talked to a lawyer yet?Customer: no because we just received the denial letter todayJA: Anything else you think the lawyer should know?Customer: our garage and gameroom got flooded out while we were on vacation two weeks ago and it was due to a water line that broke on the street in front of our house. not on our property. We have physical damage outside and inside of our home. we also lost personal property. The water company insurance sent me a letter stating that they are denying our claim because this break was unforseeable? My homeowners will not cover it either. So I guess the water company basically can come in and ruin our home and not be at fault.

Hi SocrateaserFirst, I objected to the conservator's second accounting, my attorney went to the hearing without me. However, he later contacted me and told me that the opposing counsel suggested I file a petition for instructions. The judge ordered I file a petition for instructionWhat is a petition for instructions?My concern and goals was as follows:1. Object to the second accounting.2. File a petition to have the conservator removed.Why do you think my attorney let the opposing attorney and the judge extend the time the limited conservator has to inflict more damage and harm to our son by accepting opposing counsel's suggestion?.The following is just one of the problems caused by the limited conservator's retained phony services providers and The day program the conservator placed our son in:This day program, like the other day program he was taken out of is causing confusion, regression, anxiety, prompt dependency, loss of previously learned skills, depression, dysregulation of sleep pattern and Erick is now having frequent accidents urinating on himself since being placed at day program.Can I File a motion and ask the court to waive the requirements of the existing order on grounds that the parties are too far apart in their respective positions such that a petition for instruction, meet-and-confer, and mediation would be futile. I have the evidence to show the irreconcilable differences between us. Also, the conservator continues to act inappropriately.JA: Because laws vary from place to place, can you tell me what state this is in?Customer: California, Contra Costa CountyJA: Have you talked to a lawyer yet?Customer: YesJA: What advice did they give you?Customer: I am reaching out to socrateaserJA: Anything else you think the lawyer should know?Customer: Just Answer I communicated with before about my case is socrateaser

This is an odd question and not sure of the right category.

This is an odd question and not sure of the right category. I live in a cohousing "intentional" community (in reality a PUD) but the neighbors are supposed to be cooperative and collaborative. 24 of the 27 homes are owner occupiedThere is a group of people who keep chickens and I rent a house right next to the coop. For spiritual reasons, I am vegan and before I moved in, I asked what happened to the chickens after the stopped laying eggs. They had previously killed them but agreed to let me rehouse them when that time approached. We are now at that time, and since my original conversation, 2 years ago, a new and generally disruptive person has bought the house right next door to me. She wants to kill them for their meat and keeps pushing the agenda, despite having been told by me and someone else in the club that we agreed to rehome them.Do my spiritual beliefs have any legal rights?This situation has prompted me to leave the community to move back to my own home in a few weeks time, but this woman is such a bully, and is always waiving the Fair Housing flag when people complain about her unruly son that I wondered if I could mention violation of my own Rights. The family (child and dog) have certainly violated the "peaceful enjoyment" clause in the CC and Rs.thanks, Amanda

I have a question. I had a balance of approx. $82,000. on my

I have a question. I had a balance of approx. $82,000. on my mortgage. I had to go through bankruptcy due to a "cute little trick" that my mortgage company did to me in order not to lose my home. For three years I continued to make mortgage payments and trustee payments. I managed to get out of the bankruptcy, yet when I did they did not give me credit for all the payments I made on the mortgage during that three year period. Not only that, they added over $20,000.00+ to my mortgage after the first year I was out of the bankruptcy. Which made my total over $96,000. I discovered that during the whole three year period they were consistently adding fees and charges and my attorney seemed to be more concerned with what they wanted then with what was right for me. All the monies that I paid on the mortgage for that three + years was supposed to be subtracted from the balance of the loan, yet they never did! Do I have a case, and if so would a lawyer do it on contingency? I bought this home for $69,500., which was way more than it was worth. I very much was taken advantage of! Yet that was in 1998. I refinanced it once after the first year for $80,000. After 18 years it should be almost paid for, yet the mortgage co., at present, Ocwen Loan, has my balance a little over $82,000.??? I would appreciate any help and advice you can give me.Sincerely, ***** *****

I am being sued by a credit union for failing to make a

I am being sued by a credit union for failing to make a payment for a short sale on a motor home. They loaned me approx. $20k on an unsecured note for 8 years. I simply got tired of paying it but they sent $20k of my money for the down payment on a piece of property in another state as part of a three way trade deal when I originally bought the motorhome and then decided they would not loan on the out-of-state property after they had wired my money for the down payment. Needless to say I lost they $20k so by me refusing to pay for the motorhome short sell after they made me make payments on it for years they of course are suing me. What are my options?
