Q: AD FOR RENT AT $500 WHEN I CALL PROPERTY OWNER THEY SAY NO ITS $600. CLAIMS DOESNT MATTER WHAT AD SAYS.
WOULD THIS FALL UNDER FALSE ADVERTISING IN NORTH DAKOTA?
A: I'd let this one go. If I advertise bananas are $1 and you come to my store and they are $1.50, I was not necessarily obligated to continue to offer the advertised price.
A: Generally, an advertisement is not binding unless it states something along the lines of "while supplies last" or "to the first 10 people". Without such language, the advertisement is referred to as an "invitation to officer" as opposed to an offer. If the court finds it is an invitation to offer, then there is no offer, thus no legal obligation. It would help to know all the details of the advertisement. You must know that this is general legal information, thus it should not be relied upon in your specific matter. An attorney cannot give adequate legal advice without first meeting with the clients and determining all facts relevant to the matter. I hope this helps!
