I already paid for a dog from a rescue in Ohio, but I did not sign the adoption contract since it was clearly one sided and in favor of only the Rescue. I have a receipt and have licensed the dog in my name. Is the dog legally mine since I paid for it first? I picked up the puppy and the foster... View More
In Ohio, if you sold a puppy on a payment plan without any written agreement, and the buyer is now not making payments, your options for recourse can be limited due to the lack of formal documentation. However, the verbal agreement you had is still a contract, albeit harder to prove in court....View More

Check the verbiage in your purchase agreement. Specifically, see if there is a contingency on affordable or your ability to obtain financing. You didn't mention this in your question, but what is the $5k number for? My guess would be that it is earnest money; some purchase agreements will...View More
the company privately for an undisclosed price and now wants to "make me whole" by making 20 payments of $500 or $10,000 total to compensate for my 10%. That would mean the company is being valued at $100,000--equal to the salary of a current employee.
Your rights as a minority 10% owner are determined by the LLC's Operating Agreement and any buy-sell or other agreements. Use the Find a Lawyer tab to retain a local business law attorney to review those agreements and advise you of your options.
i was late one month and was charged a late fee of $25 which i understand is ok, but also a finance charge. there are no terms and conditions stating this charge and they are not a lender that i am borrowing money from. is this allowed and if so, why?
If the full amount owed to the HOA, including finance charges, is not paid, then the HOA can record a lien and foreclose it if not paid. The judge would decide if the finance charge is allowable based on the HOA declaration and any actions taken by the HOA board of directors to implement finance...View More

Write the caseworker from Children Services and ask if you might qualify for a waiver based on income. It sounds like your issue is with a private provider rather than a state agency based on the facts of your question.

Default may be defined by your land installment agreement. Assuming for a moment it is not, it would be any failure by a patch to fulfill a duty under that agreement. If they are late they are in default. You may exercise your statutory rights. Contact an attorney who regularly practices...View More

It is my intention to move within the next 6 months but my lease renews for a year on the 1st of May. Can I advise landlord in writing that I do not wish to renew a year lease and would prefer to move to a month-to-month basis while I am looking for a new residence. It is possible that I may move...

You can ask, but the landlord does not have to agree to month to month. If it renews automatically for another year, then you might not be able to break it if you have to move. You might ask landlord to include an early termination in which you would pay some extra amount to terminate, but...View More
