Occasionally, there are customers who agree to have the work performed and the price, even with the understanding that payment is due upon pickup of the vehicle, who then do not pay. I am not aware of any law in Pennsylvania that allows a mechanic lien to hold the vehicle until payment is... Read more »
You absolutely can keep the car until you receive full payment for the repair services performed -- so long as the owner actually requested that the services be performed. Pennsylvania common law grants you an "artisan's lien" on property that you've made more valuable as a result of your repair...Read more »
I went with a contractor who started work but moved slow. Kept giving us days and times that he would he back to finish but wouldn't show up. Missed the times. This went on for about a week. Now hes not returning any calls or messages and the job still is less than half finished.
PA has a Consumer Home Improvement Contractor's Act that helps to protect you. You can file a complaint with the Attorney General's office regarding this particular contractor. I would suggest starting with a letter to the contractor indicating that you were prepared to file a complaint with the...Read more »
Mom was living in Lancaster county, Pa when she purchased a Cremation Services package for 1300.00 in 1993. Mom now lives with me in Blair County, PA. I called the number on her card and apparently the old company sold the contract and the new company states that there was only $241.00 in the... Read more »
They all gave us the go ahead. We checked the Lebanon County, PA rules and there were none. We had a company come out and start to install our fence (vinyl 6ft high) to be served with a cease and desist from developers who sold the land to the builder. The builder didn’t disclose the deed... Read more »
This, among other reasons, is why people should have lawyers when they buy houses. A competent lawyer would have asked the title company for copies of the restrictions, and you would have then known what they were. However, you may have a legitimate beef with your title company for not providing...Read more »
My insurance dropped me because I “make too much money” but I never received the notice they said the mailed me. So I had gone to the ER and now I have a $4000 hospital bill. The insurance company said I can’t file a complaint because I am no longer insured under them and the insurance... Read more »
Unlikely from the facts that you give. You let your fingers do the walking. Google didn't make them. I don't see it but ask some attorneys--note that emotional distress claims are highly technical, and not favored.
Full story, I went to the Toyota dealer with my sights set on a Toyota C-HR limited model. The dealer did not have one available so I test drove the XLE, which is one grade below the limited but the same engine. The salesman tried to sell me on the XLE but I told him no way. I wanted the navigation... Read more »
Try to unwind it. If they won't contact Toyota USA --you want a Toyota, just not that one. However, as you had a chance to sit in it etc. you may be stuck as you could have walked but didn't, had a chance to look at it but didn't get in a good light.
My electric bill has been unusually high, so I called them. They informed me I had a 3rd party supplier on my bill I was unaware of. I called said 3rd party and they informed me that I had added them to my account last summer. Going through the details it came across that my sister had given them... Read more »
We signed a contract with a window company. We filled out the credit application jointly (my husband and I). It was denied and the window company reapplied seperately to different companies to get us the financing. They did not check with us regarding this and it has now hit out credit report as...

Sorry to inform you but "hitting your credit rating twice" is not actionable at law because you cannot prove any damages. At best you can complain about the creditor to the credit reporting agency--who probably has a file on this same window company.
File a complaint with the police; if they won't take it check with the township to see who owned the business license, sue those people in small claims. Ask the landlord who takes the property for your machine.
Not seeing a question. If you want to file a class action you have to be aware that they are highly technical and not something to do yourself. If your action was covered in the first action you have to continue under that unless you have "opted out."

Ask to meet with the shelter manager and find out why. If they don't satisfy you ask the police if you can file a complaint with them for not giving you your property. Maybe call the state ASPCA first to get an idea of the law regarding shelters.
was flagged by Nissan and was to be sold at auction with "no engine warranty". The small dealer I bought it from never disclosed any issues or any flags to the engine warranty. Now I have a car that needs a new motor. Car was sold in New Jersey.
Go tell it to the judge, esp. if you weren't driving. But the way the cop can prove that you were driving is that he/she can *ask* you -- under oath -- in front of the magisterial district judge. I suppose you can "plead the 5th" and refuse to testify, and the judge may then toss the citation...Read more »
In November of 2018 I received a notice from a sheriff’s deputy that a credit card debt that I had not paid was scheduled for arbitration for a date in July 2019. On December 3, 2018 I received a letter from the same law firm indicating that I had not filed a defense or objection in writing and... Read more »
The problem may be your "assumptions." I suggest contacting the Delaware County Bar Association for an attorney referral, and then sit down with him/her and going over everything. Knowledge is power, y'know?
I do not practice in Pennsylvania, but your question has not been picked up in four weeks. You could consult with a Pennsylvania attorney who could ask you about the type of damages you might be seeking, for instance, if there was injury in the form of dental damage, or other forms of injury. An...Read more »
