The check engine light came on just a few days after driving it home and the brakes were so bad it was scary to even drive. I'm also paying over $35,000 for a vehicle that isn't worth $11,000 at least not with the shape it's in.

I am sorry to hear that you are having trouble with your car. I am unsure what you are asking when you say "emissions being done". Are you asking whether a dealership has a duty to make sure the emissions are compliant with state law prior to sale? Or are you saying something else?
The contract price was $2,035. I was charged $2,700. I did not even realize it until now. Am I entitled to the $665 back?
answered on Apr 22, 2022
You are. If the contract had price listed as $2,035, and they charged $2,700, then you are due a refund of the amount. Have you contacted the seller yet? I can't imagine that they would have a problem issuing a refund.
Contact them first and as soon as you can. This... Read more »

Continue to pay rent. In almost all cases, paying rent is crucial to maintaining your right to stay on the property. It's always better to pay rent, while simultaneously pursuing the landlord for failure to provide services noted in the contract.

We dropped off our very small dog to a care-giver supposedly vetted by a larger company (like an air bnb - you find a care-giver in your area with ratings or close by).

With respect to the criminal side of things, you just need to call the police in the jurisdiction where the abuse took place. They will take the information you have and investigate further, as needed. As to the civil side, this case would probably come down to the value of the claim. Assuming the... Read more »

If you can't afford an attorney, contact utahlegalservices.org. They are good with landlord tenant situations and I think you have a good argument that your apartment is unsafe.

BF died of drug intoxication. Insurance is asking for prescription list, autopsy and toxicology. We were not married how do I obtain these? I doubt his family will help me obtain one.

Obtain some sort of official demand from the life insurance company and give a copy to the sources of the documents you need. This may work.
Attorneys can normally obtain these items with a letter saying they need it for their client to obtain insurance.
If neither of these work,... Read more »

There is no rule. You can actually rent a property without a lease if both parties agree to do so. This is called a month to month tenancy. Leases are recommended as it gives stability and allows the parties to have a signed document confirming everything agreed upon. If you have no lease, you are... Read more »

The designation by the court of the type of case you filed is not critical. It's my understanding that the court does that for administrative purposes. What is critical is that you Complaint correctly pleads your case. If you believe you have a personal injury case, but you've somehow... Read more »

Not a lot of facts to go off of here, except that you are saying that you signed and recorded some quit claim deeds a few years ago while you lacked capacity and now you want to void the deed.

As long as you are on the deed, they are unable to kick you out. You are an owner. House ownership can be split among persons and sold separately from each other.
