A gym I was a member of closed at the beginning of this year without warning. That gym also switched everyone who attended that gym to a different local gym. I’m now stuck paying a membership for a gym who I never signed any contract for. Is this legal?
Unless you have a signed contract with the gym in question, I don't believe you have to pay for a gym membership. I would suggest not paying membership fees. I doubt they will try to sue you for it. Good Luck.
To my knowledge, all of the codes in California are State (i.e. California) codes. The Code you referenced appears to be a section of the California Codes which references multiple State codes (i.e. 21660 through 21669.1). Hope that helps.
It is hard to tell from the information that you gave what kind of tenancy you have. Assuming that you have 30 days to move out, and that you gave the landlord a security deposit, the main question may be whether or not you get your security deposit back. Landlords love to find excuses for not...Read more »
It sounds like the Realtor was waiting for the best offer, before he/she accepted the financing. While that is not a very professional way to operate, I don't think you can sue the Realtor unless he/she went forward with the offer without telling you. I would call or write the Realtor and...Read more »
I loaned him an amount in expectation of getting a monthly payment after his business got off the ground. The month came to when we agreed he had to start paying it back with interest and he never did. Can I sue him for the principal investment plus the interest we agreed upon? Also I have the...

Unfortunately, without a signed agreement it is more difficult to convince a person to pay back money he or she owes you. The emails help somewhat, as that confirms that an agreement was reached, even if it was not signed. Also, the mere fact that he acknowledges the debt is helpful. I would...Read more »
How do I know if the 60 day notice to vacate property is legit if I haven't been informed nor has it been mentioned by my landlord/owner of property and the notices I have received were not signed by the landlord nor anyone else
If you have a lease, then you should be given 60 days notice to vacate the property. Only an original, signed Notice is valid. If you only received unsigned copies, they can be ignored. I would point this out to the Landlord and make him give you another full 60 days before vacating the...Read more »
Unfortunately putting your girlfriend's name on a deed is like giving her a half ownership interest in the property. I don't think you can get her off of the deed unless you buy her out. Hopefully you can work it out with her, but be sure that you have a written contract drawn up...Read more »
It generally varies depending on the Arbitrator, how much evidence is presented, how long her/she spends analyzing the facts, how many witnesses and parties were involved in the Arbitration, etc. Expect at least a week, or longer for a complicated case.
Your question is somewhat confusing, but I will try to sort it out. I am assuming that you are looking for a lawyer to oppose a conservatorship (or a conservatorship proceeding). If the person in question still has his/her faculties, and does not appear to need a conservatorship, then it would...Read more »
I have repeatedly requested a full accounting of showing hours worked and what I am being billed for. The attorney has never sent to me either via email or USPS an accounting of the supposed hours he worked on my (divorce) case. I am at a quandary. We return to court in July where he is requesting...

I don't know where you live, but most courts in Riverside County (where I live) require that an attorney must first must first mediate the issue of fees in a mediation or arbitration. If the County where you live follows this rule, then you should bring it up in Court if you haven't...Read more »
Hi there, So two weeks ago I accepted an offer for an internship and signed an offer of employment letter. It was contingent on a background check which was in process, a drug screen which I haven’t done yet and signing other confidential agreement forms. But just today I was offered a... Read more »
You are technically obligated on your contract(s) (which I have not seen), so it simply depends on how nice they are. Since you haven't started work yet, that is in your favor. But your change of mind on the new job will not be pleasing to the existing employer. You may not pass all the...Read more »
Parking in the complex is $80 a month. Been paying that fee for months and today I tried to pay and they tried to charge me a $20 late fee when this is the first time a late fee has been implemented and there was no notice that a late fee will now be charged
From my experienced as a lawyer, and living in a condo complex for 40 years, it seems that HOAs can do whatever they like. The Board is always supposed to give Notice of any change in the rules to all members of the HOA. You are lucky, as your dispute is (for now) only over a $20 late fee. I...Read more »
Bought a car from a private party, received car pink slip and smog test, but can't register it because the title instead of having signature of current owner it says check b/s which I don't have and I can't reach the seller anymore. Should I call the police?
I recently got a car and was putting down $2,000 as down payment but the dealership forgot to charge me the down payment but instead charged me everything else for the car. We signed the contracts already and everything was a done deal. Do I need to go back and give them the money they forgot to... Read more »
I assume there was a shipping receipt or written contract somewhere in this transaction. Reading the contract may answer your question. Transfer of title is a very complicated subject. I would seek help from a Maritime attorney in your area.
Your first mistake was having an affair with a married man. Morally you are at fault for all of your problems. I am sorry you are going through all of this, but I don't think justice is on your side here.
The county wants to auction the house for unpaid taxes. I am a veteran and on a fixed income. I want to stop the county from selling the property which I consider mine because my sister left it to me if not legally then orally. What can I do?
Unfortunately, an oral promise concerning real property is invalid. The deed to the property must have your name on it for you to claim an interest in the property. Be sure there is no Will from your sister. She may have drafted one and you don't know about it. Good Luck.
