No pages were initialed. Its actually an agreement and not a contract, though still not identical. One person used an initially proposed agreement and not the one that was finally settled on.

Unfortunately, the answer you likely didn't want to hear is, it depends. Was each page of the entire contract initialed? Are the different provisions substantive provisions?

After a reasonable amount of time has passed and no payment, a common practice is to send a second notice. Usually you... Read more »

You can also communicate to the Attorney General that you do not wish to go forward with any complaint against your... Read more »

If you truly lost the item, then you have most likely not committed a crime. However, you are responsible for the loss, and you will have to reimburse the person who loaned you the camera. That means you are most likely going to have to pay the value of the camera back.

Well...if you don't have a written agreement, then what you technically have is a month-to-month lease...and what the rent is supposed to be is admittedly a bit of a mystery, but at worst, it's the rent from your old/other apartment. Typically that would be decided by the history of what... Read more »
Can I use the last month's rent from the lease to pay for the first month's rent of the month to month?
answered on Aug 3, 2017
The shortest, best answer is..."it depends on the terms of the Lease Agreement." But based on your question, I suggest that the answer is, "probably not." Let me clarify a few points, though: First, as you know, many State statutes permit landlords to charge both a... Read more »

No. Fraud requires an intention to defraud, knowingly false statements and a duty of care to the other party. Largely the same for securities law purposes. News media are supposed to be accurate but do not have a legal obligation to investors, voters or even viewers.

The contract says if we break the contract we are responsible for 70% of the cost. Due to unplanned pregnancy we can no longer afford the windows or the 7500 compensation
answered on Feb 1, 2016
If it is within three days from signing the contract, you may be within your rights to renege on the deal. If you are more than that in time, consider retaining an attorney to assist you in negotiating a compromise that will save the contractor the trouble of filing the case in court.
