I work at a restaurant in Fort Worth. We booked a musician to play, then we had to cancel him 25 hours before hand. There were no contracts signed, no verbal or written agreements that we would pay a cancellation fee and there is no verbiage on his website pertaining to cancelled shows. I scheduled... Read more »
Oral agreements are enforceable in Texas. If the musician was not able to book a new gig for the same amount of money you agreed to pay him, he likely can successfully sue you for that amount arguing that you repudiated the agreement when you cancelled the gig on such short notice. He might be...Read more »
First, you are very lucky you received a warranty when buying a used car. Most are sold as-is. Whether the erroneous mileage voids the warranty depends on the exact wording of the warranty itself. The only way to tell is by reading it.
Second, as far as the contract, if the mileage was a...Read more »
A Texas attorney could advise best, but your question remains open for three weeks. To give a reliable answer, someone would need to see the contract and know about your conversations/correspondence.

Ordinarily, title loan companies do not pay any excess proceeds to the defaulting borrower.
Your friend should check the written terms of his title loan to see if it states how long. Generally, if a contract doesn’t state a specific time for performance, a reasonable period of time is inferred.
He claimed he was the best. I know alot more now about PCs than when I hired him. I put down $250 and the overall fee I'm supposed to pay upon completion is way over market price and reluctantly I agreed as long as I had in writing what service after the sale would I be receiving. Never got... Read more »

First, make sure that the deed to you when you bought the property was properly recorded. Usually, the title company who handled the closing does this correctly. Often, when people don’t use a title company, they fail to properly record the deed.
You can file a lawsuit seeking the return of the down payment. Carefully read all of the paperwork if any associated with the transaction that didn’t go through to determine if the down payment was non-refundable or if you have any obligation to pay for the use of the vehicle prior to its return...Read more »
