Had it canceled the first year and now they want the rest of it.
answered on Jun 1, 2023
An attorney would have to actually review the contract you signed to accurately answer this question. In general, many service contracts for a number of years have conditions that say you cannot cancel early, or if you do cancel early there is a penalty of some sort. Most likely you do owe them...

Had to be torn out and replaced by another company.
First company is an LLC. No written contract. Estimate only. Checks were payable to the owner's name.
Can she sue the LLC in small claims court?
Should she sue the individual who is the LLC owner and to whom the checks were payable?

If you haven't already, you should file a claim with any and all insurance/warranty companies involved.
The shipping company will probably argue that their subcontractor is liable, instead of them. But that's not necessarily so.
The contract might say that you'd have... Read more »
judgment. I have a smaller judgment that was placed against me by an individual creditor in September of 2011. This judgment was renewed in 2021 on its 10 year anniversary.

The Federal judgment does not "supersede". You need to resond to the Notice of Right and claim your exemptions on time. The State court judgment creditor can have the Sheriff take any non exempt assets with a writ of execution. The two judgments are independent of the other. There are... Read more »
We bought the car on the first of the year. Financing is fine, insurance is fine. Dealership issued a 30 day tag, which expired on the 30th. We now cannot drive the car, because the dealership never sent us a permanent plate when we realized they’d registered it to me and a complete stranger, as... Read more »

By law am I required to still put a cash down payment?
answered on Dec 14, 2022
A car dealer can still require a cash down payment even when you trade in the car. The TILA disclosures should credit the trade in allowance and the cash down payment against the purchase price and tax, title and license.
TILA does not mean they cannot require a cash down payment. TILA... Read more »

They told me I have to make a down payment to get a car and have car insurance beforehand. I was reading up thats possible to get your money back if you write a letter outlying the codes they violated.
answered on Nov 6, 2022
I'm not sure where you read this, but requiring a down payment on a lease and proof of full coverage insurance is not illegal. Any right of recission would exist immediately after you signed the contract, and only for a limited time. You are asking if you can sign a long term contract, pay on... Read more »

Unfortunately, this is too complicated to answer online. If all you have been getting is verbal reassurance from the lender, you may be in trouble and the car may already have been sold. You need to get something in writing from the lender. Contact a local attorney for assistance with the specific... Read more »
The main office is out of my state. The local office did the work. I found out the plumber that did the work is not personally licensed but working under the license of the company.
answered on Oct 25, 2022
If the local office is a franchise and separately incorporated, you sue them. If they are part of the main company, you sue the main company. To be cautious, you sue both. Please note that you cannot sue the out of state company in Small Claims court. You have to file in District Court if the... Read more »

It sounds like a scam. A typical loan requires NO "up front" payments. Do NOT send any money without receiving, reviewing and signing a complete promissory note or loan agreement that describes how much the payments are, the interest rate, and the total amount to be paid back. This is... Read more »

You would have to prove that the shop knew there was a security problem there. As in, it's happened before there very often, but they failed to warn you or take steps to increase security. If no police reports are filed, that would be very difficult to prove. You may be able to search police... Read more »

You can try, but it is very unlikely Walmart will agree to pay the cost soon enough to get your car repaired - even if they agree. You will have to pay for the repairs yourself and then seek reimburement from them. The reason is because it is not crystal clear that WalMart is responsible. Your... Read more »

This will have a negative effect on your credit. You can try to voluntarily surrender the car. OneMain is NOT required to take the car in satisfaction of the loan.
