700 sq ft Apartment in Jefferson County, we have the AC running 24/7 and it is still over 80 degrees inside, and we pay almost $300 for electric. Seems absurd, maintenance has looked at ac twice and says its fine, it does pump out cold air but mainly sits in the cavity in the ceiling. Wondering if... Read more »
The issue is whether there was a mutual mistake. You can research Missouri law on it. Ideally, you and your broker can come to an understanding. Otherwise, you might purchase through someone else and then find yourself named as a defendant in a costly lawsuit.
We had bought our solar system from Green Solar Technologies out of California. They had subtracted our system out to 4 different installers from 2019 until today.

He used our money for his own purposes & then couldn’t afford to replace it, fed me lie after lie, I chased him down for a year. His dad finally loaned him the money so I wouldn’t press charges. I paid for all materials/labor. Finished the roof a year later Nov 2022. Now he wants to be paid... Read more »
Your contract governs. I think you misstated something. You claim that you entered into the contract in November 2021 and he finished the work in November 2022. We are only in early April 2022. Although it took longer than expected for him to finish the roof, unless you’ve suffered financial...Read more »
It’s hard to answer your question. I presume you are an adult and therefore responsible to honor your written commitments. I don’t understand how you were “made” to sign an agreement as opposed to having chosen to sign the agreement because you assessed the situation and viewed not...Read more »
After a plaintiff fails to achieve service on the first summons the plaintiff may request an "alias" summons. After that the plaintiff would request a "pluries" summons. If you are getting sued and have been served all that matters is that the summons was served before expiration.

It is unclear from your post whether at this point you can back out of the sale.

An attorney would need to review your lease. It’s unclear whether remained there on January 27 and you paid rent for the next month. If you stayed and paid and the landlord accepted the rent then you might be on a month-to-month tenancy. Any lawsuit that you file probably won’t get an...Read more »

By the time I drove it home the oil light came on and then the check engine light came on. It was a Cam position sensor code and there was no oil showing on the dipstick. Will I be able to cancel this contract since it's not me just changing my mind?
It is you changing your mind on account of problems with the vehicle. If you are able to prove that the seller know of problems and made a misrepresentation to you, then an attorney might be able to help you. The challenge in these situations is proving what the seller knew.
