They can bill you whenever. If there was a written contract then they have six years from the last date of work performed to bring a claim against you for non-payment.
If they were required to get a permit, and didn't, then you have a strong claim under Ohio's Consumer Sales... Read more »
I filed a complaint with BBB and have all documentation, including contractor's acknowledgement of failed fix. What are my next steps?
answered on Dec 12, 2022
If you are in a municipality that requires a contractor bond, then you can make a claim on the bond for the work that is not up to code up to the value of the bond. Otherwise you will have to bring a lawsuit against the contractor. It is likely that you would have a claim under the Consumer Sales... Read more »

Then they called the buyer and told him that the trailer he bought was unsafe to move.

He would have to sue you for breach of contract or on some other basis such as fraud, and the judge would determine if you have to return the money. If there is no written contract or anything else in writing to confirm what was agreed between you both, that would make the court case more... Read more »
The mail boxes old and the lock system is now broken so the mail carriers can not open it to deliver our mail. It has been 3 weeks! Does the owners of the park have to fix this and how long do they have?
answered on Jun 3, 2023
This would depend entirely on your agreement with trailer park. Trailer parks so not fall under the landlord tenant act unless you are renting the trailer rather than just the lot.
They think I am running a business that has been defunct for 9 years. I produced evidence that this was not the case and proof I made them aware of this years ago. I sent this to the tax office, Attorney General and the courts. They were dragging their feet so I contacted Ohio Senate and got them... Read more »

Keep om writing to the authorities not less often then every three weeks. Explain everything, in detail. Do not give up. Eventually you will indeed get their attention and they will respond in a correct positive manner. Don't give up!

They are a BWC drug free workplace but I was 10-99 and not even an employee. I never took a pre or post drug test. Is this legal?

Yes. Even if you were an employee, Ohio allows for termination of employees who use medical marijuana.

Down payments are not illegal. They are legal and ubiquitous.
They want me to set up payment or go to court. I can’t go to court it’s 7 hours away can’t take off of work. Is there anything I can do or can I just ignore it?

Talk to a bankruptcy lawyer in your community to help you evaluate your options.
Is this even legal? I’ve got bills to pay. Family to feed. I deposited 3/25/22 and was told there’s a hold on it until 4/4/22.
answered on Mar 28, 2022
Holds on checks are not uncommon and legal, particularly if the check is out of the ordinary for the account. A check is not money, it is a promise to deliver money. When you give a bank a check, it has to clear through the federal reserve system before your bank actually gets the money from the... Read more »
He won't give me the receipts that I already paid him half upfront that was in the agreement, but also he lied telling my bf how much he would get for work.
answered on Feb 1, 2022
You may have a claim for breach of contract and/or a claim under the Ohio Consumer Sales Practices Act. You have not given a lot of details such as if the contractor has completed the work that you have paid him for. I would suggest reaching out to an attorney for an initial consultation.
Can I cancel the agreement? And he won't give me any receipts that I paid him up front...and he also lied about the amount he promised my bf working for him. We were helping him out with letting him have the job and getting his name out there and he tried to pull one over on us...do we have... Read more »

Yes. If you've paid him, but only because he told you he was licensed, then the contract was induced by fraud. Take note that if he did any work, you may have to provide some kind of compensation.
This may also be a violation of Ohio's Consumer Sales Practices Act.

Avoid bankruptcy - many medical expenses - Would you know what would happen if we just wrote a letter explaining our situation?
answered on Oct 4, 2021
You may not be able to avoid bankruptcy, that's what it's there for. You can contact the credit card companies to see if they would be willing to work with you. Otherwise, a debt consolidation service may also be of assistance.
Best of luck.
The store says they deleted the payment two hours later and I still owe them.
I have a different credit card now and can’t get the statements from that card.
Does my zero balance receipt work as payment in court
answered on Sep 29, 2021
I'm sure the court will look at the receipt but the store may well have evidence that they reversed the transaction after the time of the receipt.
The other day I went and made a withdrawal from Checksmart and the woman who did my transaction gave me $675 and then gave me a receipt with my transaction my old amount my transaction amount and my new balance. After that she gave me the $675 in cash and when I got home she called me and told me... Read more »
