We got a letter from a lawyer claiming that a women was bit

we got a letter from a lawyer claiming that a women was bit by a dog while walking by our rental property. we spoke to our tenants that own the dog and they said that they walked past her on a street behind our house and she was never touched by the dog that was on a leash at the time, they were returning from a walk. there have been no previous issues with the tenants or the dog and they have been good renters for the past 18 months. there is no police report, but the city came to check on the health of the dog 2 weeks later. Are we liable?JA: Because real estate law varies from place to place, can you tell me what state this is in?Customer: PAJA: Has anything been filed or reported?Customer: with the police? no. the women must have called the city at some point.JA: Anything else you want the lawyer to know before I connect you?Customer: the tenant said that no one else was on the street at the time so they have no witnesses

My father set up custodial bank account for me. In my tax forms I've always claimed the 1099s as my own but I am now legal age and when I visited the bank they said technically it's still my fathers account. I am confused.

I live in Paso Robles, Ca. and the is an amphitheater about

I live in Paso Robles, Ca. and the is an amphitheater about 5 miles from my house. I can hear the music from their concerts in my bedroom even though I've put memory foam in my window, run a fan to block noise, and I also wear earplugs on the nights of their concerts. They say they have an exemption to normal noise ordinances and can hold as many concerts per year as they wish. They say that as long as the sound does not exceed 100 decibels and the concerts are over by 11 p.m., even on weeknights, they are within their rights. What can be done to make them lower the volume or at least make them end at a more reasonable hour, especially on weeknights where I have to get up early and go to work?

Mom is 101 years old. Went on vacation, stayed in a VRBO

Mom is 101 years old. Went on vacation, stayed in a VRBO rental, entry way had one step down to L/R, Mom took a mis-step and fell on the marble floor. Fractured pelvis and sacrum. Hospitalized for 8-days and in a life care rehab facility for 9 weeks. She lives with me (her daughter) and is back at home. Owner of the VRBO is an attorney. Mom has Medicare A and Federal Retirement Blue Cross/Blue Shield. Most bills have been paid. Her out of pocket co-pays are around $10,000. It is my understanding the property should be insured with a small amount of medical coverage if someone is hurt on the premises. First told, it was being turned into insurance company. Then given name of insurance company, who did not insure the property. Given another name of insurance company who indicated policy had been cancelled on 04-04-16 and the accident occurred on 04-29-16. Received text from VRBO owner there was no insurance and he is not required to have insurance. My belief is he uses the VRBO as his residence as well as a VRBO rental. Property is located in the Black Forest in Monument CO. Believe this is a possible case for small claims court? However, would feel more comfortable knowing how to proceed. Thank you.

Buyer and seller ready to close on 8 ohio parcels. Buyer

Buyer and seller ready to close on 8 ohio parcels. Buyer discovers roof damages from recent storm. Title charge have been generated from the title work. Seller wants to close asap and seller has filed insurance claims. The insurance "should" cover; however, how can the closing take place and still protect the buyers interests with rights to the insurance claims ? If insurance does not cover, then buyer will want some considerations for the damaged roofs. What options do we have to close now ?

My son went to school with a black eye due to a scuffle between he and his brother. The school took pictures and contacted the police. I understand if the school has certain protocols to abide by but I was never notified. What are my rights here? My son felt the most uncomfortable the way everyone was making him take pictures.
