The building isn't registered. It's only at an occupancy stage right now. I suppose I'll have to contact my RE lawyer.

According to the floor plan, the den in my new condo was supposed to be an open square without obstructions. Now that I have possession, I notice there's a square wall in one of the corners taking up about 4 square feet. I spoke with another owner on the same corner of the building and apparently the space is occupied by a vent, so there's no removing or changing it. I'm not seeking legal advice, but what happens in situations like this? Any real estate folks kicking...

I like to think about my job, not just perform it. Perhaps that's because I appreciate just how powerful my role is in shaping the lives and destinies of others. I will be called to the Bar in June, by the way.

Quote: Originally Posted by Lord-Barrington This thread seems to be confusing "I'm defending a guilty client" with "I'm trying to get a child molester back on the street on a technicality". The former I have no issue with, the latter I do. Interesting. I think I fall into this camp, as well. The line is drawn by the moral worth of the client, not whether or not he or she is strictly "guilty". I think we can all agree that the black letter...

As an example, I get clients charged with PWID (Possession with intent to distribute) all the time. The vast majority are not trying to sell the stuff; they bought for personal use (a lesser crime). But the Commonwealth can't seize a person's vehicle and sell it at auction to support the Drug Task Force unless the person is...
