Unless there’s a written contract that provides for your agreement to a price increase or surcharge, you nave a point. Your agreement in some form to a price increase is required.

You have not provided enough information for a meaningful response. However, if you have a signed and enforceable land contract, the seller cannot change the terms without your agreement unless the contract provides for the change. You may wish to consult an attorney.
We don’t have enough information to determine which state has jurisdiction, and the proper venue for a suit. There may be diversity jurisdiction in federal court. Consult with an attorney to determine whether, and where, to file suit.

One of them is that he can't have his homeless friends hang over and stay the night. With him in Kentucky, it's hard to... Read more »
Your uncle could appoint you as his agent, giving you authority to act on his behalf. This does not necessarily need to be in writing, but under some circumstances, you might want to have it in writing. I don't know what it means to "trespass the undesirables from his property", so...Read more »

There is no "appeal" from this in the sense of a court appeal governed by the Michigan Court Rules of the Federal Rules of Appellate Procedure. Mr. Carron's advice about getting in touch with the issuing authority seems sound. If the letter was written 15 years ago, I would assume...Read more »
The answer is that it should not be possible for you to be divested of title to real property without your knowledge. As for having your name "removed" from a mortgage, if you were the mortgagor and the debt secured by the mortgage were to be paid, you might say that you were...Read more »
Winds blew it open, broke the top seal and bent the metal bar. He claims in the lease the exterior walls and roof, and structural maintenance, repair and replacement of the building and its foundation and that it doesn't include the door.
It probably depends upon the wording of the lease. The leases that I prepare for a particular landlord typically provide that the door, which generally requires more maintenance than the non-moving parts of the building, is the tenant's responsibility.
The federal Confiscation Act of 1862 would apply to gold owned by the Confederate States of America (which the Act did not recognize as an entity), with the result that the United States would own the gold. This is a hypothetical question because the CSA government probably held no gold at the...Read more »

I don't disagree with Mr. Zamzow's answer. He is analyzing the issues based upon the assumption that your relationship with the former roommate created a tenancy. His approach is the cautious one, and it helps to avoid liability, but if liability imposed by a court is a lesser concern...Read more »
