Jackson, MO asked in Business Law for Missouri

Q: Is it illegal for a business to not have a begining and ending balance when paying installments?

This is on a mattress. They think they can repo it at your at will without documentation to enter home. They want payment but will not except check but want currency. I remember when I bought the mattress the sales person wanted to know if I wanted used or new. I thought that was odd because I didn't think you could sell used, because of hygiene issues.

A: If the contract shows the amount due and the installment amount and any interest, then I'm not sure you've been wronged. Whether the business may break into your residence to nab the mattress is a separate issue.
