I took my dog to a doggy day care about 2days ago when I arrived to pick him up they inform that somehow he got free and bolted through the dog I have yet to find him so I wanted to know what are my options and how to go about them. Thanks
You described your situation but didn’t ask a legal question. If you were served, be sure to show up at court or hire an attorney if you can afford one. Missouri has a statute covering tenant repairs if a landlord won’t make the repairs but the statute is a weak one.
He breaches the contract if he doesn’t honor its terms. For example, if there is a May 1 deadline for him to finish the roof and that date hasn’t yet arrived, then unless he has told you that he won’t perform he hasn’t breached the contract.
purchase material. I am told the contractor has purchased the material. The contract says if I cancel I pay 20% of the contract amount or the contractor's costs whichever is higher. If I cancel can I just forfeit the $11,000 but will I be entitled to obtain the material? Is the material in... Read more »
That's a large sum. For an attorney to provide a meaningful answer, the attorney would need to review your contract. If it makes financial sense to you, pay an attorney to review the contract. In addition to the terms you stated, the contract might also have a one-sided attorney's fee...Read more »

Any judge can rule against a motion but if you’ve satisfied the judgment and the plaintiff refuses to file a satisfaction then you are entitled to have it satisfied. So long as you can provide that you’ve paid it in full, including post-judgment interest and costs, I see no reason that you...Read more »
I thought the original creditor dismissed this account as a hardship. I was surprised when a debt collector tried to collect on it, and now a different debt collector has bought the account and is suing to collect.
He used our money for his own purposes & then couldn’t afford to replace it, fed me lie after lie, I chased him down for a year. His dad finally loaned him the money so I wouldn’t press charges. I paid for all materials/labor. Finished the roof a year later Nov 2022. Now he wants to be paid... Read more »
Your contract governs. I think you misstated something. You claim that you entered into the contract in November 2021 and he finished the work in November 2022. We are only in early April 2022. Although it took longer than expected for him to finish the roof, unless you’ve suffered financial...Read more »
It’s hard to answer your question. I presume you are an adult and therefore responsible to honor your written commitments. I don’t understand how you were “made” to sign an agreement as opposed to having chosen to sign the agreement because you assessed the situation and viewed not...Read more »

So I talked to my property manager and they said that I’m responsible for paying next months rent since I have to give them a 30 day notice and that they also have to send it in to their corporate approval. I was also told that I’m responsible for the rent because they have “sent someone to... Read more »
An attorney would need to read your lease in order to give sound advice. An attorney could try to negotiate a mutual termination of your lease so that no lawsuit against you gets filed. If you simply decide that your landlord breached the lease and you vacate, you will likely get sued.
