Help Real Estate Law Question....?
Seller And Purchaser Enter Into A Contract For The Sale And Purchase Of Real Property For A Price Of $175,000. The Property Has A Value Of $190,000. The Purchaser Fails To Perform.What Is The Amount Of Money Damages To Be Awarded To The Seller? What Is The Amount Of Money Damages Owned To The Purchaser If The Seller Fails To Perform?
Are you asking what the law says or what would actually happen. For the law it would be costs of either party and the deposit in the buyer failed to perform. In theory they could get the value of the contract (not the appraised value) or possible the appraised value minus actual value for the buyer, but in actual practice it would never happen. This really may not help if this is a textbook question (since I'm kinda vague here) but its an annoying question more interested in what the law kinda says than in reality.
For what would actually happen is they'd probably bicker back and forth for awhile calling each other nasty names and questioning whether one or the other was sired by dogs, or worse. One or both would get lawyers who would send legalistic but vague letters back and forth. They'd both threaten the closing agent with terrible penalties if they released the deposit to either one of them but eventually they'd probably settle for splitting the deposit in some way to mollify them both (anywhere from buyer gets it all to seller gets it all but rarely would I expect more than the deposit to be agreed upon).
How Do I Go About Temporary Guardianship?
I Am A Full Time College Student Who Just Graduated With My First Degree And I Am A Single Parent With Two Boys. My Oldest Is 3 Going On 4 And My Youngest Is 1. I Do Work Part Time, But Is Not Enough To Take Care Of My Little Family. My Mother Wants Full Custody Of My Boys But I Am Just Afraid That If I Give Her Full Custody Of My Boys She Will Cut Off All Relationship With Me And My Boys. I Do Feel That I Can Take Care And Raise My Boys To Be Good Men In The Future, But As Of Right Now I Don'T Have What It Takes To Raise Them. My Degree Is Only A Undergrad Degree And As Of Right Now I Am Looking To Transfer To A University. Once I Am Finished With School And Get A Really Good Job I Will Then Be Ready And Excited To Raise My Boys How I Want To Raise Them. So Until Then I Will Not Give My Mother Full Custody But I Am Looking To Give Her Temporary Guardianship.
Guardianship is a relatively easy procedure. You can get the forms at probate court and fill them out. Your mother takes them in to probate court and files them. They have a hearing and if the guardianship is not contested then they will grant it. It doesn't affect your parental rights but it gives you mother 'custody' in that she can make all medical/educational decisions for the children.
That said, think long and hard about this. Temporary guardianship is for 6 months. At the end of that term, your mother can file for permanent guardianship. That's very similar to custody. Even though you would still have parental rights, she would have 'care and custody' of the children. And she would legally be able to cut off contact with you. That you're fearful she might do that should be a clue that she probably would, as soon as she is legally able to. Also, the only way to dissolve permanent guardianship would be for you to go back into probate court and file to have a hearing. You couldn't just show up and claim your children. The burden of proof would be on you to show that the children would be better off with you. And if they had been with your mother for a couple of years the court would look at the emotional impact of removing them from your mother's care and might deny your request to dissolve the guardianship. Think carefully before you do this. It might be better to work full time to support yourself and your children and go to school part time rather than give your mother guardianship.

First, psychiatric service dogs ARE service dogs - not emotional support animals - and ARE covered under the ADA (Americans with Disabilities Act). There is no legal registry required by federal law that makes one a "real" service dog. And small "lap dogs" can be service dogs, regardless of some peoples prejudice against them.
And first, before you read further, make sure it IS a service dog. Most therapists, mental health professionals and Dr's don't have a clue what the qualifications are to have a service dog. A doctors note can't get you a SD if you're unqualified. So first, lets review the law:
Service dog (SD): You must be disabled to have one. Must be specifically trained to perform a task, that the handler cannot perform themselves, that mitigates their disability. Is permitted to accompany the handler into no pets businesses, facilities and generally anywhere the public can go.
Emotional Support Animals (ESA): You must be disabled to have one. Does NOT have to be specifically trained to perform any task. Provides comfort, companionship and support through it's mere presence. Is not afforded public access. Only given special consideration in no pets housing and flying in cabin in a plane.
Disabled is by ADA standards - NOT your Dr's opinion. The disability must substantially effect a major life activity in every day life. For Psychiatric service dogs, the psychiatric disability would have to be very severe to make daily living a struggle, even with medication. According to the ADA and NIMH (National Institute of Metal Health:
"It is not enough to have a mental illness to qualify as a person with a disability under the ADA. According to the NIMH, 26.2% of adults in the U.S. suffer from a mental illness in any given year, but only 6% are severely mentally ill. So more than three quarters of those with a diagnosed mental illness are not disabled by that illness and would not qualify to use a service animal even if they would benefit from one."
Service dogs and ESA's must behave and cannot be a nuisance. They cannot bark excessively. Service dogs are supposed to accompany their handler wherever they go, so barking while left alone isn't usually an issue. For ESA's it can be and needs to be immediately corrected. Obviously they can walk - if she can hear a 7lb dog through the ceiling, that just says how shoddy the construction is. Saying that, it seems like the neighbor wanted a dog, got turned down and is now Pissed you got one and is hell bent on making sure you can't have one either.
ESA or Service Dog, the management already approved it's presence there. It's their responsibility to explain to your neighbor that you have a right to have the dog.
Although I'm not a lawyer, I investigate fake service dogs and file charges against people who have them, and this is what I would do.
A: Set up a webcam camera on your computer and record your dog while your gone. Watch the tape later and see if it's actually barking. If it's not, save the files for future proof if the courts get involved. If it does, do whatever is necessary to stop the behavior. Citronella bark collars work and they make shock collars for small dogs.
B: Send a registered letter to the apartment manager and owner, stating your neighbor is unjustifiably harassing you. State you have a federal right to have your service dog and it was approved by them in advance. Inform them that you have proof that the dog isn't barking. State that you feel the neighbor is jealous that you have a dog and instead of just agreeing with her, they need to back up your federal right to have the dog. Let them know that the harassment is aggravating your disability. State that if it doesn't stop IMMEDIATELY you will be forced to file an injunction against harassment against her - something you do not want to do. Tell them you will also file a discrimination complaint with the housing authority and the Attorney General's office against then if it doesn't stop IMMEDIATELY.
C. If it doesn't stop IMMEDIATELY, file an injunction against harassment against the neighbor. Demand the police arrest her if she breaks it.
E. Start writing down every and all problems you have with the neighbor, even if they're not serous enough to have broken the injunction against harassment. Send it by registered letter to the management every two weeks. Tell them it's just to inform them of the harassment you are receiving.
F. Just in case things don't improve, start looking for a new apartment. In the end, it may be better for your mental health to just move.
