I recently bought a car from a used car dealership in MI that was greatly misrepresented. The seller was just a guy who the owner was allowing to sell cars out of his dealership, not an employee. After many issues, I sued the person and the dealership, and the seller has since fled the country. Is... Read more »
Do you have a judgment against the seller? If you do, you may be precluded from now going after the dealer because generally you need to bring in everyone you can when you first file an action. If you don't have a judgment, you will need to somehow legally tie the dealer to the seller.
The bills are presumably for the amount owed, which does not go away even when they shut the water off. In most cases, that amount owed becomes a lein on the property, which means it cannot be sold without being paid off.
Seller said nothing wrong with vehicle. Said the trans was rebuilt and had a recent oil change. Upon further inspection AFTER the purchase, break lights don’t work, tailgate sticks/doesn’t stay up, battery needs to be replaced, needs O2 sensor, replace ABS control module, original VIN...

Unlikely. Is this a private seller? This is a classic caveat emptor situation: until the point where money and title changed hands, you had the ability to investigate, and either negotiate for a lower price or walk away. Unless the seller warranted, guaranteed, or promised you something, I think...Read more »

You really need to find a lawyer; this is far more complex than you think it is. And if you try doing this on your own, without a full knowledge of the court rules and applicable case law, you are going to find yourself the recipient of a summary disposition, meaning your case will be over before...Read more »
Not necessarily illegal, and in fact that is or was a commonly-pushed strategy of credit repair shops. When you dispute an item, the credit bureau contacts the creditor for verification. If no verification is received timely, then the credit bureau is supposed to take it off your report. So the...Read more »

No you cannot simply 'rescind' a completed transaction. You MAY be able to sue for damages especially if the agent of sellers took some affirmative actions to hide defects and failed to make appropriate disclosures in the paperwork, but...Read more »

Can you? Yes. Should you? No. You need to understand that major corporations like Ford have entire departments full of attorneys working for them, any of whom would have a field day with a pro se litigant. The first thing they will do is remove the case to the general civil docket because 1)...Read more »
You may have some cause regarding added fees, depending on what they are for. But the remedy for that is to adjust the contract amount. It won't save your car if that is the concern.

Probably not. Look, insurance is a business. It is probably not worth their while to fully investigate what might have happened, especially when clearly, the insurance company is paying a claim anyway, just to save a few bucks.
It is pre-arranged; insurance companies are most collision...Read more »
I think you're right that you can sue them. I would try consulting a consumer rights attorney before trying it on my own. And I would plan to go ahead and sue in the general civil division (district court), not small claims. In small claims, neither party can have an attorney, and a business...Read more »
We live out of state and spend summer in Michigan. Called lawn service to cut grass in Mich. Agreed on price . No written contract. Find that they cut grass high so it needs it every week. Only able to afford service every other week. They disagree.
Regardless of the type of agreement you have, the most important information you could have is... you probably have a contract, and binding. But, what the terms of the agreement are, you'll probably need to hire an attorney and litigate it to ever know for certain.
A recall (ECU software update) that came with an emissions warranty came out in 2019. I tried to have the recall done in 2019, dealership said they couldn't do it due to modifications made to the vehicle. In 2021 I went back to have the recall completed with same "modifications"... Read more »

I was served in regards to an old debt. The debt is mine, but I'm unsure if the amount is correct as I paid part of it in the past. Most of what I've read says to deny the complaints just to make them prove its actually mine and that the amount is correct. Is this a good idea? Solosuit... Read more »
She has scammed others and I have the proof online from reviews. I just want my money back and she’s refusing to give it to me like she promised. She asked me to stop emailing her and got mad when I said I’d have to involve the authorities.
