Blogging Hiatus

I know that I have an inbox filled with unanswered questions, but I was swamped with work and my Masters degree assignments due last month.

I promise to answer ALL questions from Tuesday 15th, 2011.

Thanks for your patience and I apologize for any inconvenience, as I saw that some questions were urgent!


  1. I am renting for the past 3 years from the same landlord. He was doing some renovations and contacted me and insists that he has to go in my apartment to change the door. I did not give me consent and informed him that i would be there in the next two hours. However, he still proceeded and went in without my permission. The workmen stole my customer's laptop. Who is responsible for the stolen laptop?

  2. Hi good evening I need your expertise in this question:
    If A purchased and surveyed a parcel of land and B was present for the said survey, after a couple years A decided he wants to block his property only to find out B has removed the boundary pickett and now claims that the portion he is not living on and that has been surveyed by A is his and makes confusion so that A builds his wall straight. After some years B decided that he would build on the said portion of land and join it to his old structure. A is now deceased and A's survivours has written to B stating encroachment of A's property, B then hires a surveyor and his surveyor states that he is in fact on lands of A and will have to break down can B now apply for adverse possession or amnimus possessendi.

  3. If you have been on a land for over 25 years and the owner have not been coming for rent what can you do..

  4. Hi good evening, there are some abandoned lots of land nearby to where I live, if I wanted to obtain this property how would I go about it so I'm within the law. Do just put up a structure and hope for the best or can I go to the city cooperation to find out if it is indeed abandoned?

  5. Good day, I got married to my wife in 1990 and moved in with her.The house was owned by her grandmother who died in 1991, however there was no will. My mother in law verbally gave her the house. My wife was born in 1969 and lived there all her life. Her mother is 74 years and was also born there. Her grandmother grew up there also and was paying rent up to 1988 prior to her death in 1991. My wife has paid all taxes up to date. However she never knew ownership of the land change and no rent has been paid since 1988 to the old landlord or the new. 2017 After 28 years or the death of her grand amother a gentleman appeared and informed her that he was the new owner without saying when he became the owner and producing a feed. He offered her to buy the property and gave her a letter to go to the bank. The bank requested a copy of the deed and to date he can't produce same. One day he came with a surveyor and surveyed the land and said he was going to sell part of the land that we are occupying. My wife refused and told him that she was not allowing that as her family was occupying that land for well over a hundred years. My wife then fence the property where they placed the marker out thebetween leavingt two pieces of land hers being the larger piece. Recently my wife received a pre action protocol letter from his attorney indicating that she is unlawfully occupying the land and he wants possession of the both pieces or if she is interested in buying he is selling at $80 a square foot and 21 days to reply of Court proceedings will be brought against her. Can you please shed some light on where we stand. Thank you
