We signed a contract to purchase ($700k) home and entered into escrow. The home inspection showed a lot of repairs, so we decided to cancel the contract. My realtor sent “Cancellation of Contract” to the seller.
The seller called us back saying that they are willing to fix the repairs... Read more »
Each side's lawyer (i.e. buyer's lawyer and seller's lawyer) is going to claim that their respective client is "right." Who will win a lawsuit depends on more facts. Did the seller agree to repairs in writing, thereby waiving the buyer's cancellation? Was the...Read more »
It depends... on the facts, the injuries, the adjuster, the insurance company, the status of your case, and even the attorney representing you.

Generally, a dealership has selling a car, has to sell it with clean title, which means the lien needs to be paid off. You need to call an attorney to have a full consultation and review your purchase documents. Only then you can explore the options available to you.

There was no agreement signed stating that the deposit was non refundable but she refused to refund my money and is planning to sell to someone else.... Read more »
it's generally not a good idea to give anyone a deposit without a written contract. at this point you will either need to pay a business attorney for a complete consultation and advice or possibly take your chances in small claims court (if the amount is under $10,000).
I answered the lawsuit within the 30 day period however they filed a "motion to deem request for admission". The hearing (which doesn't require an appearance) is scheduled for 3/4/22. Problem is, I was never served, mailed, or emailed any Request For Admissions. What motion should I... Read more »
First, an appearance is absolutely required unless you want a default against you. You must attend all hearings. Second, you will need to file an opposition stating that you were never served and attach a declaration. I highly recommend you contact and consult and even hire an attorney. These...Read more »

If you cannot pull the documents from the court online system, you can ask opposing counsel to email you another clean/clear copy or you can go down to the courthouse and ask for the documents to be printed by the clerk's office (for a fee). It's not clear whether you are claiming the...Read more »
no. if you are on title to the property, you would not be able to bid at auction. the post is a little confusing because you say the "house was auctioned off" which implies it was already foreclosed upon so it's not clear how you would be able to bid on anything at this point....Read more »
Attorneys cannot solicit your business here. This is a forum where we can answer specific questions about general legal principals. You will need to use the find an attorney feature and call attorneys to have consultations and get quotes as to fees for the legal work you may need. Good luck.
I signed a contract for work to be done on my house after some water damage was incurred. They came to my house on 10/30 to look at what needed to be done and provided me with an estimate on 11/2. However, I now know that their contractor’s license expired on 10/31.

Yes, if you are on title you would be entitled to something. however, if he made all the payments, he could be credited for those. you would need to have a full consultation with a real estate attorney as to your rights and the specific facts of the matter.
