My initial answer is yes, you should get your money back. Even though you signed the contract, you never took possession of the vehicle. The reason should not be an issue. You never took delivery of the vehicle so one of the conditions to make the contract never occurred.
What do I file if a company ignores a Subpoena to produce documents by a certain date in SC? I am representing myself "Pro Se" because I can't afford the large attorney cost I was told and I make too much to qualify for help. The Company installed the flooring wrong and it is uneven... View More
You will need to file a motion to compel and for sanctions if the company is ignoring the subpoena. This is done pursuant to Rule 11 and should get you the desired result. You need to send a letter threatening to file the motion to the attorney for the company.

Legally, you may have a case against the dealer. The case is likely not worth pursuing using an attorney. The reason is that the damages you have suffered are minor. You can buy a different vehicle and mitigate your damages. A lawsuit is an expensive thing to pursue and any recovery is likely...View More

You need to contact the person who conducted the sale of the property. This person may be called a Master, Special Referee, or Judge. There is a form you will need to file to claim the proceeds. The person conducting the sale may have the form for you to sign or you may have to obtain the form...View More

We rented a home with a dock on the inlet for the sole purpose of fishing and water activities but when we arrived, the dock had been torn down and under construction. There is no access to the water due to the construction material along the entire inlet wall. No communication was made to us... View More
The short answer is probably yes. If a property is held out to you as including a dock, you have the right to be compensated if the amenity was not available to use. Of course, you will have to prove the difference in the value of the property with the amenity and without the amenity....View More

If you co-signed on a loan for anyone, you are liable for repayment if the person you co-signed for does not pay the debt. The creditor can and probably will come after you for any amounts it does not receive. Bankruptcy will not keep the creditor from coming after you.
You must give your landlord a reasonable amount of time to repair the oven. You should probably give the landlord written notice if the oven is not repaired within a reasonable period of time, you will make the repair yourself and deduct the amount from the monthly rental payment.
Most lawyers will not consult with someone who is already represented by an attorney. If you feel the need to consult with a second attorney, you should advise your first attorney that you are doing this. Most attorneys do not feel threatened by such a request and actually expect the second...View More
The real issue is whether you are on the note or guaranteed the loan. If you did agree to be liable for the debt, then, you would be liable. Usually, if a spouse is not on the mortgage they are not on the note or otherwise guaranteed the loan.

First, since your check never cleared it would appear that the check was not received. Simply putting a check in the mail is not enough when you are behind this much on your mortgage. You needed to call the lender and make sure that money was received. You also needed to make sure that you sent...View More
It is possible that an attorney could file a motion to reconsider and set aside the sale. That is not very likely particularly with the short period of time you have until the sale occurs. You probably need to hire an attorney who is familiar with bankruptcy laws. You may be able to file...View More
The answer is a little dificult because the answer can change based upon the facts. The creditor must first sue and obtain a judgment against you. Once the judgment is obtained, it becomes a lien against the property for 10 years. Most of the time the creditor is not going to do any more than...View More
