Potential new review

I opened a claim saturday night with my warranty company, got an email saying they would call for an appointment. Monday at 920AM my wife comes home and they let themselves into my yard and were messing with my equipment.
They did not call to set up an appointment. They did not know what was wrong, they just opened the fence and walked to my backyard like they owned the place and started an unauthorized exploratory search of my equipment. Nothing appears damaged so at least i don't need a new claim for that.
 
They called me and were adamant that what they did is how they always work and is the correct way. Given that i have had at least 6 other different services from AHS, and they all called first, i find it very hard to believe that they legitimately believe they can just waltz onto someone's property without their express consent.
 
I received a letter today,9/6 complaining about some of the words I used in my original review. They did NOT argue that they had entered my property without permission, nor did they in any way claim that my story was untrue or that they had in fact been in compliance with their contract.
 
According to http://www.dashfarrow.com/criminal-law/criminal-trespassing/, Defiant Trespassing is defined as New Jersey Statutes (NJSA) 2C:18-3b explains that a person commits a petty disorderly offense if he or she had been notified against trespassing but still chose enter or remain in a place. The warning could have been verbal, through signage or via fencing designed to keep intruders out.
As my entire property is fenced in (albeit unlocked), one could argue that there is notification against trespassing. As such one might read my review above and then read the definition of trespassing and perhaps connect the dots.
Any updates?

Is recommending an attorney considered legal advise?

Hi,

Looking for a lawyer that can tell me if I have a case to sue.
My son broke his leg in a park.

Please PM
what did you end up doing?

I was elbowed in the face during a basketball game and will most likely be needing a root canal,
Somone mentioned I should look into sueing the guy who elbowed me.

Can some recommend an attorney that deals with forming entities, especially not-for-profits. Ty
If you focus on being a boss, you will never be a leader. Leaders lead people to growth and improvement.

Not 100% sure if this is a law question, but I'll give it a shot here first.

I have an accepted offer on a house that is over a million. Due to various issues that came up on the inspection, and an overall rethinking of the value of the house to us, I'm likely to be renegotiating - with an eye towards getting under a million to avoid the NYC mansion tax. I don't think I'll necessarily be able to get there directly by just lowering the total offer to $999,999, just based on the gap between that and the accepted offer. My question is whether it's possible to explicitly exclude as many of the things being left in the house that are personal property, and then come to a separate agreement on a purchase price for all those items? And if so, what is the process (if any) for valuing all of those items so that it's both legal, and can still represent a significant enough amount to make a dent from a negotiating standpoint?

You should ask your lawyer.
And if you don't have one you should get one.

I do have one, and I will be discussing it with him, but that doesn't mean I can't get other perspectives. It may be possible to do, but not something my lawyer is familiar with, or maybe not comfortable with, etc.

Your lawyer should be able to suggest other options to avoid mansion tax. Get a good lawyer next time
