I use to train at this gym, but I left and ended my contract with them. I then signed with another gym. The old gym had a no dating client rule. One of their employees and I fell for each other. I haven't been at that gym for over a year, but can that employee still be fired for dating me?
I'm bipolar (not officially diagnosed, but I've lived w enough to know). The other day I woke up to my daughter telling me landlord had been by. Called him, & before the end of the convo, I was getting MAD, & usually wind up cussing. Told him I was getting mad, just woke up, & I was going to let... Read more »
Depends on the court. Depends on any scheduling order that has been entered. Depends on whether a hearing has been scheduled. Depends on whether your opponent can add a thrid party as a matter of right. How's that for a lawyerly answer?
I have read the financial agreement signed and it states "parents have financial responsibility for those rare days daycare is closed to catastrophic events. The legal definition of catastrophic events references natural and man made disasters not pandemics. This is the only thing I've signed and 3... Read more »
The answer to your question would depend upon how the court construes the definition of a "catostrophic event." Now one will be able to tell you with certainly how a court would construe the definition. For example, how is a "man-made disaster" defined? You are free to sue in small claims court...Read more »
There was a commercial kitchen for sale. It was technically only the equipment. The space has to be rented separately but you couldn’t take the equipment from the space. The price was $25,000 with a required down payment of $5,000. For the deal to work you have to be approved by the landlord... Read more »
In hindsight, you should have required that the deposit be placed in an escrow account. If the contract entitles you to a return of the deposit, then you are entitled to it right away. As the other attorney stated, you might need to sue to get it. In my opinion, small claims court is often a...Read more »
A judgment in Missouri is valid for 10 years, so that fact that the judgment against you is 5 years old only means that it is still valid. If you get summoned, you need to appear. Consult with an attorney familiar with judgment debtor examinations, as there is an easy way to avoid answering the...Read more »
property manager lied to landlord stating I am 3 mos. behind to get me evicted when I owed Feb. rent of $525, $25 for Jan., and $10 from October. I knew I owed Feb. rent because it was 13 days late with $10 a day late fee. I paid it all in their office, Feb. 14. Was handed 30 eviction for refusing... Read more »
The security deposit statute governs withholding of the security deposit for damages but it does not prevent a landlord from suing for damages. I don't know what you mean by saying that you only have a week to pay. According to whom and what will happen in a week?
My kitchen sink and dishwasher has been pouring into my walls and causing extensive water damage. Flooded carpets, mold growing everywhere..etc. I've asked for them to repair many things and they come "look" at the problem and just leave saying they will be back to fix it.. I've had problems for... Read more »
I am sorry to hear about your bad situation. This is a question-and-answer forum however and you didn't ask a legal question. Based upon what you've written, I think you'll need to decide whether to pay an attorney to represent you or to continue dealing with the landlord on your own.
(I recived my final check from my ex employer. I took the check the same day to a check cashing place and cashed it. Today the check cashing place called me and told me that my ex employer had placed a stop payment on the check and I owed them the money back plus fees. We are paid for current week... Read more »
Your post is unclear because you don't explain why the employer is claiming you owe the employer rather than vice versa. Therefore, it is hard to assess whether you owe your former employer or vice versa. For example, if the the check was to cover more than days you had worked, then I could...Read more »
Former partner signed 5yr contract. I honered the entire 5yrs. I tried to end contract when 5yrs were up but they say since i didn't give 30 day written notice they are suing me for liquidated damages plus attorney fees, etc. They said there was auto renewal unless written 30 day notice. I didn't... Read more »
That's a lot of money. I suggest you schedule a consultation with an attorney. The attorney can then review the entire contract and give you legal advice. An attorney could also help negotiate with the opposing counsel if that is something you desire.
First, exhaust your efforts to get paid without hiring an attorney. If that doesn't work and enough money is at issue hire an attorney. Most attorneys could send a letter and many could file suit if necessary.
You didn't indicate whether this was a real estate contract or something else. Regardless, you ought to have an attorney review the contract and assess the facts in order to give you meaningful advice. You are better off spending a little money for a consultation now than thousands in defending a...Read more »
