I need to make sure that it does clarify.
If you say no, then I can expand and make it clearer. But I always asks if it clarifies if can you do not understand.
That way, I know that you do.
Like I said nothing I did not already know - that does not mean the answer is wrong in law. One could say I have been through a red light, am I in trouble. I could say yes, because the law says you cant go through a red light and the person might come back and say, well I knew that. It does not mean the answer is wrong or incorrect.
I wanted to know what her responsibilities were to her property what was and is she liable for and the same with us:
The responsibilities are as detailed in the lease. It sets out each parties rights and obligations. In absence of this it has to be implied by a Court. What were the intentions of the parties? Was it to create a legal relationship and lease.
Here clearly the answer is yes, because she allowed you to do the work. Not to contribute to the work is not equitable and not fair. That is how it will be judged.
Does that clarify?
