I have Stock Appreciation Rights in my previous company that are still valid. If the company sold for more than $8 million, I should get some proceeds. They sold recently, but the CFO told me the sales price was too low to activate my SARS. I'm skeptical. Should I point blank, in writing, ask if... Read more »

Would I have rights to my house, if my moms dying wishes, with out a will, & possibly just a verbal agreement, were for her sister, my aunt, to buy a home for me & my brothers, which she did, but she never put our names on it, only hers, her husbands, & Garza Trust, are on deed, & she has taken...

All agreements concerning real estate must be in writing, so you would probably lose on your contractual claim, but you might succeed if you could prove with clear and convincing evidence that your aunt intended to deceive your mom and profited from that deception. Your claim would be based on...Read more »
As you will so often hear from attorneys on this forum, it is impossible to provide an answer regarding a contract sight unseen. However, the contract very well could be "legal." If you have any money at stake it might be penny wise and pound foolish to fail to consult an attorney.

My grandmother asked me to dog sit for her for two weeks while she’s moving. I let my landlord know out of decency and he told me it was okay. He has a father that is very controlling and isn’t the landlord and told him to tell me I can’t dog sit at my apartment. I went to speak to him and he... Read more »
This doesn't make any sense. "[D]efinition of confidence"? Never heard of it. If you are asking whether you are entitled to the specific model of rental car, instead of a similar car within the same class of cars, it would depend on your contract. However, if the rental agency substituted a...Read more »
I took over a solar contract when I bought my house in 2012 and after a few years I was getting billed an annual reconciliation fee. I called them up and asked about it and they just said what it was and didn't help. Then I got a copy of the agreement and contract and what I agreed too was being... Read more »
I know this may sound weird to you, but just because someone has breached a contract with you does NOT mean you can sue them for breach of contract. In order to sue anyone the plaintiff must be able to state--and ultimately prove--that they have suffered some sort of damage; and in contract law,...Read more »
I signed a sublease agreement but shortly after (2 weeks later) I was told by management that subleasing was not allowed and that we would be receiving an eviction notice in the near future. Is the sublease contract that I signed void? or is still still legally binding even though it was against... Read more »
A review of the underlying lease should provide the answer as to whether a sublease is allowable within the confines of your lease. If in fact there is a provision not allowing for a sublease, then your sublease agreement with the lessee is not valid.
We entered into a real estate contract with a buyer for our house. During the contract, he asked for
additional time to complete his loan paperwork. In order for us to get that we had to agree to give up our $15,000 deposit should the deal fail to be completed. Are we entitled to get that... Read more »
How and why were you "required to give up your $15,000 deposit on the new home? Surely your Realtor working on the purchase of the new house warned you about the consequences that might materialize if you put down a $15,000 deposit on the new home without making the purchase contingent upon the...Read more »
In August 2018, a health care provider delivered through FedEx, a broken piece of CPAP medical equipment, which I was unable to use for my diagnosed sleep apnea.

Regardless of how frustrating and expensive this travail has been for you, it has none of the required legal earmarks to support a simple lawsuit, let alone support a class action. Rather than search for a lawyer or law firm to help you bring fire and brimstone down upon the heads of all the...Read more »
I have a job which is complete now. My first progress billing was April. My final billing was May. Neither have been paid to me, yet the prime contractor has required all closeout documents, including warranties to be submitted. Further stating all progress payments will be held until documents are... Read more »
Since this is the end of June, it sounds like the primary contractor has had trouble getting his progress payments from the buyer, or whoever is building the property. Here is the bottom line: Regardless of what you "have always believed" about progress payments and when documents are due, and...Read more »
Our original lease stated we went one year then month to month with 30 day termination. We amended twice to add a year. The 2nd amendment for extend the lease ending 5/31/19 and added 60 termination. When amendment expires doesn't the original lease go back into effect? We gave notice on 6/1 and... Read more »
Based upon your (confusing) facts it appears you should have given notice 60 days before June 1--or 30 days before June 1--if the second amendment was not accepted. By waiting until June 1 you may have violated the lease and are subject to eviction at any time.
A gym I was a member of closed at the beginning of this year without warning. That gym also switched everyone who attended that gym to a different local gym. I’m now stuck paying a membership for a gym who I never signed any contract for. Is this legal?
Unless you have a signed contract with the gym in question, I don't believe you have to pay for a gym membership. I would suggest not paying membership fees. I doubt they will try to sue you for it. Good Luck.
A few years ago we made the mistake to buy a time share in Mexico that we paid in full; a few months later tried to cancel the contract but the company never accepted to get our money back or cancel the contract. Every year they try to get money from us because we supposed to pay maintenance fees.... Read more »
Yes, Mexican timeshare companies can sue you in the US. However, I am wondering whether you purchased your timeshare from a Mexican timeshare company--or (more likely) from an American timeshare company that sells timeshares in a timeshare property they own down in Mexico. But it really doesn't...Read more »
