Q. A leasing agent is asking me to sign a lease/pay surety bond before I see the apartment. This legal? My rights? Options?
A: Advice? Seek a different leasing agent/apartment. Would you buy a house without looking at it first? There is nothing LEGALLY requiring someone to show you an apartment before leasing it, but there is nothing LEGALLY requiring YOU to lease it either. If they are unwilling to do this, imagine how bad the day to day management must be. If you have an issue with an appliance or utility you're not going to get a good response from someone like this. If they couldn't show it to you until tomorrow that is one thing, but refusing to show it to you until you signed a lease? Bizarre at best. --this answer is offered for information only and does not constitute legal advice nor does it create an attorney-client relationship. If you have further questions I urge you to consult with a local licensed attorney.
Q. Caregiver, man set up $ security w accountant n brother, passed day before meeting w brother
A: It is unclear what you are asking, but if the estate has been closed without the caregiver making a claim, the recourse may be gone. If there was some sort of security that WAS set up, there may be options, but the only way to know for sure is to meet with a local attorney and review all the facts. --This answer is offered for information purposes only, and does not create an attorney-client relationship or constitute legal advice. Please seek local legal representation if you still have questions!
Q. How do I correct a misspelled name in my Will, Power of Attorney and Health Advocacy paperwork?
A: If the misspelling is obvious / innocuous (smyth vs smith for example) there will likely be no big issue and an affidavit is fine. A simple codicil will also work well. The BEST solution is to redo the document particularly if there is the possibility of any misinterpretation. (You have nieces named Jayne Smith, Jean Smyth and Jane Smith for example. In which case, the document should be more specific anyway!) You should also READ the document with the attorney before signing to make sure this stuff gets caught. MOST attorneys will fix typos at no or very minimal charge if caught quickly though. Ask!
