The first question would be whether those papers are indeed "legit", and we don't do product reviews. Assuming the company didn't mess up and she was legally served, the next question would be whether she responded (in the legal sense) or not. If she failed to respond at all within 21 days (add 9 days if she is out of state), then your next step would be to ...

NO In most cases there is no tax owed by the beneficiary and it has, in any case, nothing to do with the estate.

Lying in itself ("of course you will get a wifi signal here") is not a crime. However, if you have proof that the lies were intended to benefit your landlord at your expense ("You won't sign the lease unless there's wifi? No problem") and that they actually did so ("You've signed the lease, it's too late to back out"), he may be guilty of fraud, which is a ...

(For a definitive answer, consult an employment attorney). According to the federal Equal Opportunity Employment Commission, in general, An employee cannot be forced to participate (or not participate) in a religious activity as a condition of employment. This requirement comes from Title VII of the Civil Rights Act of 1964. Answer 14 on this page ...

You file another claim. Period. It's not unjust enrichment. You have no duty to fix your car. You are being compensated for the reduced value. Say I hit your door backing into a spot and cause a tiny dent. You get paid x for that dent. Then someone comes and rips the door off. The door needs to be replaced anyway. You are legally allowed to put in a claim ...

I wouldn't be surprised to see other states and jurisdictions with similar statutes. Fortunately, in the United States, there is a safe harbor against demands for state income taxes: For every dollar of taxable income, you can only be taxed by one state. (This was affirmed by the Supreme Court in 2015 in Comptroller of the Treasury of Maryland v. Wynne.) ...

If the stranger was aware of the reward offer at the time of the return you have a legally binding contract - you made an offer to the world, money for return of the phone, and they accepted it by returning it. If they were ignorant of your offer and returned the phone then there is no contract and you do not have to pay: albeit at the cost of being a jerk. ...

For regular firearms you only have to comply with the laws of the state to which you are moving. Since Utah (presently) has no state-specific restrictions on ownership or possession of AR-15 rifles that means in this case, as you say, "no problem." (The only exception would be registered NFA items – e.g., machine-guns, suppressors, SBR, SBS, DD, AOW &...

He may be entitled to (part) of the deposit or he may owe you more money When you and he agreed you both entered a legally binding contract - you are obliged to sell the vehicle to him, he is obliged to buy the vehicle from you. The deposit is merely the first instalment of the payment for the vehicle with the balance being due on delivery. They are not ...

Utah has a lot of public parks, so to point in the right direction, I will assume that this is a public park in Salt Lake City, it's just a plain old grassy field, and it's not during a special event. A person is suspected of some crime like selling drugs, not arrested, but told by a police officer to go away and never come back. This is way beyond the power ...

Your first line of defense against liability arising from the rental insurance is property insurance. Your next is the fact that a suit against arising from ownership can only be brought against the LLC, although this works only if you don't personally participate in the conduct that gives rise to the liability. For example, if the LLC hires a gas line ...

Short Answer If everything was set up correctly in the first place, it is probably unnecessary to open up either an informal probate case or a formal probate case, although it may be necessary to prepare a small estate affidavit. But, there aren't enough facts in your question to know for sure. There are also a couple of documents that have to be filed or ...

What Is A Disclaimer? A disclaimer is an unequivocal and irrevocable rejection of a donative transfer of property, such as a gift or inheritance, without providing any direction or guidance regarding who will receive it in lieu of the disclaimer beneficiary of the transfer. In other words, even if someone leaves you something in their will, you can refuse ...

The felon-possession law is Utah Code Ann. §76-10-503, which distinguishes Category I restricted person and Category II restricted person, a complex definitions that distinguish felons in general and violent felons, as defined at Utah Code Ann. § 76-3-203.5. In the case stricter case, the law says: (2) A Category I restricted person who intentionally or ...

I'm sorry that you've had to go through this. Car accidents are rough business (having been through two, I know how bad they can be!). As others in this thread have pointed out, Utah is a no-fault state. Legislators intended for this to cut down on court costs and unburden the legal system. Drivers just turn to their insurance companies and have their ...

"No fault" is a term of art in this case. In a "no fault" insurance regime, such as the one in place in Utah, minor car accidents are covered by the insurance company of the person who suffers the damage, and not by the person who is at fault in the accident. Utah's "No-Fault" Insurance System Utah is a "no-fault" car insurance state. This means that ...

Utah uses the IFC Code with modifications (none of which apper relevant based on a seach for "extinguisher"). You describe your premisis as a "townhome" which suggests it is a free-standing house, if so the classification of your building would appear to be R-3 and fire extinguishers are not requires in that classification. If it is instead an apartment (...

It is a principle of equity (of which damages are a part) that you are not entitled to be enriched. Let's say that the first collision did damage costing $500 to repair. If after the second collision the cost of the repair is now $700, the first driver is liable for $500 and the second for $200. That said, let your insurer sort it out - that's what you pay ...

Was the case Sealed? Or is it considered to be Private? Those are two different cases. I was not able to find any laws regarding sealing, or expunging records of Name Changes, but was able to find the Utah Law for Criminal Records. I can only assume they draw from one another. All that being said, assuming your whatever case is sealed, then Some ...

At common law, an employer can require their employee to follow any lawful and reasonable direction. I can't give you US case law on this but in Australia it has been held (R v Darling Island Stevedoring & Lighterage Co Ltd; Ex parte Halliday (1938) 60 CLR 601, 621–622) that this means employees are obliged to comply with a command that ‘relates to the ...

Probably not Your landlord must fulfill their obligations under the lease and local tenancy law. Those obligations would generally not include an obligation to tell the truth. If they are lying to avoid their obligations then the lying is not unlawful, the avoidance of the obligation is.

Am I responsible for paying for the damage on his car? Yes, if you were deemed at fault in the accident. Does the citation you got state that you were at fault in the accident? If so, you are liable for the damage. If you were at fault in the accident and for the damages, this is an issue between your insurance company and the other drivers' company, and ...

"Legal requirement" can and in this case simply means "it's what is required in order for us to be reasonably able to offer you this service", noting that it would be unreasonable for such a dangerous business to operate, when one moron slipping and suing them could put them out of business. It's a little surprising that you've never had to sign a waiver ...

@DM's answer is correct, but maybe not as straightforward as the OP might prefer. Usually a disclaimer is made by giving timely written notice in proper form to the person who is in control of the inherited asset (using the word "inherited" in a broad non-technical sense) within the time allowed by statute. But, this can only be done if the rule that is ...

“The right to disclaim property or an interest therein is barred by…”? This phrase means that you cannot disclaim something if one of the listed things happens. I think maybe it means that the only way to disclaim is to (a) disclaim the specific thing in writing, That's not necessarily the only way, because the law also says: This section does not ...

Can the bank do this? Yes. Are companies allowed to create contracts with anything they want in them, and apply them to you because you didn't read an email and subsequently jump through 5 hoops? It is allowed to do this because it is part of the original agreement you entered into when you established a relationship with the bank and signed a lot ...

For a contract to be valid, there needs to be "consideration" given to both sides, which is legalese for "something of value", including money, credit, service or goods. In the case of your neighbors, you are not giving them any consideration With your bank, you are engaged in a contract, with each of you receiving consideration. Generally, you get ...

If you cannot legally purchase a gun in Utah due to any restriction, such as residency, and you engage someone else to knowingly buy or gift you a gun (such as a "straw man" purchase from a dealer or private sale), that is illegal. From the same link you posted (my emphasis): Can I buy a firearm as a gift for someone? Yes, as long as the receiver is ...

Until the rental period ends, it's not yours to rent While the tenant is paying rent, it's their home and you do not have the right to rent it to someone else. It seems like your manager has been proactive in looking after yours and your tenant's interests. By proposing a win-win outcome where they can start showing the unit and possibly renting it early (...

do we legally owe them their rent back? The previous tenants are entitled to a refund of the portion that your property has been rented to a new tenant. Generally speaking, U.S. law prohibits a landlord to get double rent for the same unit at any given point in time. I highly doubt that Utah law is any different in this regard. Even if the lease contract ...
