First attorney was to refund me 5200.00 dollars. Never did. Second attorney can get that for me but I will only get 1000.00 back. He stated I need to pay taxes and excess charges. Is this legal? What should I do?
This question leaves a lot to the imagination. If your first BR lawyer never gave you $5,200 way back in 2011, why are you just now trying to recover it? Oh..wait; let me guess? So you can pay BR lawyer #2; right?
Unfortunately, this very common problem is occurring at an ever-increasing rate in Texas--and in all other states. When wire transfer fraud like this happens--unless the bank is able to claw back the money from the fraudster's account-- you are out of luck. The only possibility available to you is...Read more »
Unfortunately, unless you are renting on a month-to-month basis, there is nothing you can do that will not cause more pain. You may be able to get the landlord to stop charging for unwanted services; unless you agreed to do so when you signed the lease.
A house on base which is 15 miles away. I gave a proper 32 day notice stating we was gonna fulfill our lease but not resign. Apparently they said they needed a 60 day notice. Not sure what I can do so I’m not charged the month to month rate fee in September. On base housing takes away my Basic... Read more »
I already have a signed contract from a buyer to purchase my home in Michigan. I can understand them requiring the purchaser of their home to have a local lender or whatever they want because it is their home. It doesn't seem to me like they have the right to infringe on my home sale.
During an owner financed real estate transaction, I signed a promisorry note. In a section titled PAYMENT it states I will pay the note back before 1/01/2029 via monthly installments, however under another section, BORROWERS FAILURE TO REPAY, it states "If I do not repay the loan amount in full...

The tenant informed me of the damage and says he's not sure how it happened. We both suspect the damage was caused by the lawn mowing company the tenant hired, but there was no witness to what happened. The tenant contends this is my responsibility to pay for repairs on the basis that my wife told... Read more »
Your tenant is right: Damage to the OUTSIDE of the house cannot possibly be "damage outside normal wear and tear" to the leased space inside the house. If you have fire insurance on the rental house it should be covered; if you do not carry fire insurance you should get some.
Is this normal? Why should I have to pay for a lockbox when one is probably already on the house? This was not stated in the lease or when I signed the lease 2 weeks ago. I just received an email with this information today.
Landlord is telling my family to make arrangements to leave for 4-5 days while they make repairs. Alternatively, I can remain without AC in the middle of July in Florida. As well, I will not have hot water for the duration of the repairs.
Hi I am living in a apartment 2 room 2 bath and have a roommate who is starting drama and I want to leave before it get worse and I am going to put notice in with the landlord about me living can I live with out them knowing? If not how can I approach them and without getting sued after I get out?
If you signed a written lease you are responsible for all the rent--regardless of how much your roommate agreed to pay you. If your roommate also signed the lease then they are also responsible for all the rent. Wordk out a deal with the landlord to let you go.
I discontinued work with this particular client because I discovered he was committing what I was quiet certain was investor fraud and did not want this to affect my or my companies reputation. I later discovered that he left the state of Connecticut because he had been summoned and fined for the... Read more »
Unless you sue the deadbeat client and receive a Judgment, collecting all the money they owe you is nearly impossible--especially without competent counsel to help you. Look for a good lawyer using the Find a Lawyer tab at the top of every page.
Lawyers are very intelligent and highly trained professionals--but we are not soothsayers; nor do we do crystal balls. Therefore, I am constrained by a fundamental law of the universe and unable to opine on your current dilemma. Why not begin by asking Nemo?
I ask as this pertains to a "lifetime warranty" on a brand of paint that has malfunctioned less that 3 years after application. Can I hold the paint manufacturer responsible for labor costs, etc ? Not just the replacement of paint ? Thank You.
My attorney had me in emotional distress at our probate mediation, while he had me mentally under pressure after telling me that we were signing PR over to the plaintiff or its 5 to 10 years in prison he asked me to sign a paper stating my presence at mediation. It took me a minute but I was trying... Read more »
