The fact that you closed on the property even knowing that the property did not have 50 years left on the roof, will be used against you as an "affirmative defense," if you sue to get out of the contract. You may have a breach of contract claim, if you can show that the 50 yr warranty... Read more »

The VERY WORST thing an employer can do these days, is to draft up an "Employee Handbook." Idaho passed a law, rejecting unions, and making all work "at will." "AT WILL" is the worst thing that ever happened to workers in Idaho, because employers can literally fire... Read more »

Kevin M Rogers answered on Sep 3, 2021

Every contract for the sale of a car, includes "small print" provisions. If you carefully read all of the "fine print" provisions of the "extended warranty" addendum to the contract, it SHOULD say somewhere that after four months, the company may raise the payment to... Read more »

That will give you a complete look at the property's history, show... Read more »
