Q: 

Small trailer brakes, min wheel/rim size?

A:  Easiest method is the swap out the axle with an axle that already has brakes equipped, you''ll be able to get smaller wheel diameter you need no problem. this is a bad idea on these little lightweight trailers. they will lock up continually if they don''t have enough weight on them, especially electric brakes. I would go with the surge brakes on the tongue if you know welding they do come with a sheer pin that you can drop in while backing...

Q: 

Grandmother refuses to make payment arrangements

A:  does she have a bank account? She better close it. They an attach the bank account. You didn't say what state it is. If there is a mortgage on her house, I don't think they can sell it but if they wanted to get nasty, they could execute on the contents -- probably the contents aren't worth much and they won't bother unless to harass her but they WILL go after the bank account. They WILL attach her bank account if she has one and then she would have to go to court to prove that the money in the bank account was from the pension. She probably could file bankruptcy, but, if she has any equity in the house at all, she may not qualify for a chapter 7 discharge. It looks like her current income is from exempt sources, but that probably won't prevent "bank...

Q: 

Deed of Easement: Buying Property w/o a MISTAKE

A:  You are missing a key element here I think--If an easement is granted to land B to cross land A to get to B that does NOT entitle Land C to cross land A by any stretch of the imagination! Now there may be other issues--but look up dominant and subsevient property If you want to charge $25,000 each for a license to cross yor lands--so be it!  And grant licenses for hard cash NOT easements. An easement is a form of permanent right that funs with the land likley forever--and it compromises your values as such . A license is a form of permission that runs with identified people and depending on how written can be revoked, but If A grants permission to B to cross Blackacre thant does not bind next owner C to grant it nor does it allow B to convey  permission to D  .  ...

Q: 

Time-Sharing Question in FL

A:  1 - There is no "normal". 2 - You either negotiate something that you can both live with or the judge will make the dec... you. Nothing better than hostile divorced people to make the lawyers happy, all the way to the bank.     "She emailed me stating that she would "see me at the hearing" because I refuse to agree to anything they want to offer. " Girlfriend can email anything she wants but likely she has no standing with the court as she is not legally married to Dad.  "They" cannot make an offer.  Dad is the only one with legal standing with the court and when you sit down to mediation if what he is proposing is not reasonable he can expect the arbitrator to start imposing some pretty unreasonable expectations on...

Q: 

Term Life Age Bracket

A:  Most people purchase term insurance when they have a specific need for coverage, so age doesn''t really play a factor in the decision to purchase coverage. That being said, I find that I sell term insurance mostly to people in the ''earning years'' (ages 25 - 60) who have others (family) dependent on their incomes. www.conafg.com If you would like to run your own price quotes for term life insurance, you can do so instantly online at www.CEGLIFE.com.

Q: 

Fla. Employer now requiring "setup" before clock in?!

A:  No, it''s not legal. While your employer isn''t required to pay you for time spent hanging up your coat, getting a cup of coffee, putting your lunch away, etc. before your shift starts, they must pay you for all work time - and that includes the type of things you describe. You may want to point out to your manager (nicely!) that their new policy appears to be violating both State and federal wage and hour laws and give them a chance to review that and change their decision. If after that the persist in making you work this time unpaid, contact your State''s Department of Labor and file a complaint. When you talk with them (remeber-nicely!) mention that there are class-action law suits that did some serous financial strains on some companies for similiar situations. While you could go to...
