2034 Questions Answered
- Q. Wife has a business, opened in March. Roof leaks whenever it rains. What rights do she have against landlord?
- A: A leaking roof violates the warranty of habitability. She can stop paying rent. However, the landlord is not responsible for lost business, etc., just the rent. Call the town to issue a violation.
- Q. I am both non-domiciled and a non-resident of CT but wish to make a will applying CT law. Is this possible ?
- A: I am not aware of any CT law that is unique in estate planning the way corporations use Delaware law for certain purposes. As you have not stated your purpose, no one could answer your question. The short answer is a will is probated in the court where you reside when you die. So, if you are a New York resident, your CT will still gets probated in NY.
- Q. In NYC, Signed agreement with a company without reading everything. Owner info they wrote is incorrect. Can we void?
- A: If something was written after you signed, that can be challenged. Claiming you did not read something before you signed is not a defense.
