We live out of state and spend summer in Michigan. Called lawn service to cut grass in Mich. Agreed on price . No written contract. Find that they cut grass high so it needs it every week. Only able to afford service every other week. They disagree.
Regardless of the type of agreement you have, the most important information you could have is... you probably have a contract, and binding. But, what the terms of the agreement are, you'll probably need to hire an attorney and litigate it to ever know for certain.
I am in Michigan and my old apartment complex never sent me an itemized list of damages or what they were using my security deposit for and its been over a month. I took a video of me dropping off the letter in their drop box with my forwarding address on it which i gave them the exact day I moved... Read more »
There is a particular timeline that must be followed in Michigan regarding security deposits on both the landlord and tenant side. If that timeline hasn't been followed, then you might have a cause of action to file and recover it.
After closing on my home, but before moving in, my neighbor had his property surveyed. Among other things, there is a semi permanent structure built by the sellers husband, who is deceased, that the survey shows is encroaching on his property. On the Disclosure Statement, the seller stated there... Read more »
I work for a non profit swim club and we are wondering what the limit of earned income and reserved income we can hold onto with out losing our non profit status. We are following all the other non profit policies, but cannot find a clear answer for this. Thank you.
My husband took a new job and I had to stay home with our son and the company I was at kept my last check my when I hired on I got a sign on bonus well I guess I signed an agreement saying if I didn't stay a year I had to pay it back
Without seeing any agreements it's difficult to point you in the right direction. But, probably not. However, they would probably have a pretty clear path to obtaining your sign-on bonus, even if it required a lawsuit. Whether that means all of the sign-on bonus or a fraction of it, again, depends.
It's probably not entirely helpful to send you to read a statute, but there is a pretty helpful website from the State of Michigan that discusses the boundaries of the Youth Employment Standards Act (YESA). It doesn't appear as though a minor 16 years or older requires a parent's...Read more »
An addendum is probably not enough, by itself, to permit the seller to terminate the purchase agreement. Usually an addendum is an offer to modify the contract and not a termination of a contract coupled with an offer to reform the contract under new terms. But, there's really no way a lawyer...Read more »
Like Mr. Geers says, probably not illegal, but also likely unreasonable.
I could imagine a discrimination based complaint where a practice like this is discriminatory against persons who don't have ready access to a device that connects to the internet. But, there would need to be a...Read more »
She told our Manager and asked her not to tell us because the employee said she’d tell us. When she told me over the phone, after working together for the whole week, it was 8 days notice. I feel since our employee handbook states 2 weeks required to get paid out PTO, I’m being just. She’s... Read more »
Did she work 8 out of 10 work days? Did she work 8 days out of 14 days? It sounds like no matter how you cut it, she probably didn't work two weeks, but it is almost never that simple. Did she work 8 days separated by a weekend? Why didn't she work 2 weeks? She told your manager that she...Read more »
Well, think about it from a big picture. While, it is true that they cannot damage your property, if they do damage your property you're only reliable remedy is a lawsuit against them. It is also true that your parents can evict you. Every familial situation is different, you might look back...Read more »
Probably not. Most tenants are under a lease or month-to-month terms, in those cases, a landlord can generally only raise rent or change the terms to begin follow the expiration of the lease, or with at least a month before the next rent payment is due.
After my 12 month lease i went to a verbal monthly agreement with my previous landlord. Someone bought the place and is trying to give me 7 days notice for a rent increase and wants a lease signed then as well. He thinks since I only had an oral agreement with the old owner he doesn’t need to... Read more »
There is something called the Michigan landlord tenant handbook that is free through the State or Michigan State University, and it will have your answer in there as well as some other helpful information.
But, your instinct is correct, 7 days notice is not sufficient in a month-to-month tenancy.
My dog and I were at a dog park when another dog, out of nowhere, ran up and bit my dog's leg. My dog did not provoke the other dog as she was in my arms when this happened. My dog is currently at the vet and is being checked on, but they're saying it could cost $1,500 or more and I feel... Read more »
That is a tough answer to pin-point without a more exact question.
Michigan defaults to the FLSA, and the section 3(m) changes promulgated in the Consolidated Appropriations Act of 2018 (CAA). This regulation was finalized fairly recently, while I can't know exactly what you're...Read more »
I just got a renewal contract from my landlord saying that he needs 60 days instead of 30 for terminating the lease. What happens if I can’t notify in 60 days? He only gave me a 30 day notice to renew the lease.
Depends on the context, door-to-door sales, contract for the purchase of goods, employment contract, etc. Each will have its own method of getting out of a contract but they nearly all will depend on the other party.
