hi I got an AC contractor to replace the compressor of my house AC after it failed. They came and replaced the compressor. But the new compressor they put on failed in 3 days. They sent me a $5240 invoice, which I refused to pay. Now they send an affidavit of Lien on the house. How do I fight it?
The options depend primarily on the type of lien, which I cannot determine from your question. If it's a judgment lien, there is a form affidavit you can complete stating that the property is your homestead, and therefore the lien does not attach to the property. If it's a tax lien,...View More
I am doing legal research for a YouTube video in response to someone who seems to believe that a character saying, "on my tax returns, it says I sell seashells by the seashore, but I moonlight a bit" as a way of saying he does oddjobs, is somehow equivalent to perjury.
and now they will not send the money to my Landlord or back to me is that not stealing!? The deposit is 1900 plus two months rent April/May’s. I’ve already sent an email to the management company asking them to forward the money to my landlord or send back to me immediately and they needed to... View More
The prior manager stole from the landlord, not from you. Your landlord is the one with the claim, not you, which is why your landlord is asking for your assistance to get the money back. Give them a copy of whatever you have that shows you gave the payment to the prior manager.
Keys to what? A house, a car, a safe, a boat, a crypto-currency account? Is the item you want keys to yours, or was it your father's? If there's no will, you need to look at the rules of intestate succession to determine who has rights to what property. In order to take any action on...View More
The short answer is no. Being related to someone in the past is not at all sufficient to show your ownership of any property. For example, I'm related to my grandmother, but I certainly do not own the house she used to own before she died.
No, the landlord has no authority to hold property belonging to someone else. Go show him whatever documents you have showing that the 4 wheeler belongs to you, and pick it up. If he won't release it, you can sue for conversion - small claims court will have jurisdiction over claims of less...View More
I had a mentor that would have me sign contract with “businesses” that were really not real. Not only were they not real but I was paying him upwards of 4000 a month to him. $300 was legitimate as he would meet with me as a mentor. I however have a contract through him with his parents who i... View More
It sounds like you have multiple contracts with this person, and he has multiple assumed names (the business names on the contracts.) If you are not receiving the services you contracted for, you may be due a refund.
As to the car, it's impossible to tell from your description...View More
The status of the probate case is not clear, but before anyone can do anything with the house, two things have to happen: 1) There must be someone appointed to represent the estate - if there's no will, that means you need an administrator appointed. 2) The administrator would have the...View More

Yes their are repairs that need to be done..but i feel those are thing the landlord should fox like the water does not come out the tub or sink in 1 bathroom and the ceiling fan in the living room went out and these things have been broken for years
Most won't do it, but renewing a lease is entering into a new contract. With a new contract, everything is up for negotiation. Of course, the deposit does not apply to the repairs; it applies to cover damage to the property by the tenant.
Look here for a detailed description of how...View More
It sounds like you have a life estate. Life tenants must maintain the house, which should include an insurance policy to protect the remaindermen in the event that the house is damaged. If there was a fire, for example, you'd be responsible to pay for the damages. An insurance policy is cheaper.
My father is horrible. I am 16 years old, my mom passed when i was 10. I love my father i have to, but i cannot stand his verbal abuse. He does so much for me, but i am breaking as a person everyday. I have a sister who is financially stable and she would let me come over anytime. I just don’t... View More
I was in a similar situation, and got a job so that I could spend as little time in my father's house as possible. It sucks, but I think you're stuck for 2 more years. The good news is that by that time, you can save some...View More
So details ( I’m not delinquent on rent) I have a friend who had kidney disease and was on dialysis. He couldn’t work and was on his death bed. I took him in and made sure he went to his appointments and he was on disability but it barely covered anything. His dialysis clinic let him know of a... View More
If you already own the land, you already have a deed which covers everything that is permanently attached to the land, or that becomes permanently attached to the land; this would include a house (assuming it's not on wheels). If you're buying the land, then yes, you'll need a deed,...View More
I do not know how a property would be "accidently" put in your name, or how anyone could sell property (by auction or otherwise) that they had already transferred to someone else. Take your contract, payment records and any notices you received to a lawyer for review.
