With a tort, where the injury occurred. Almost always you can sue in the defendant's home place. Depending on the case, you... Read more »

You should notify the police or sheriff about this because it can be a crime to alter serial numbers when it was done to misrepresent the identity of the item. You can also probably sue the seller for fraud. But you should talk to a lawyer about this first. What you can and should do will be... Read more »
Someone fraudulently cashed a check I sent to pay my trash bill. The trash company never received it, so they still say I owe the bill. Who is responsible for getting the money - the bank, or the trash company?
answered on Jan 13, 2023
Most likely you.
If someone intercepted a check you wrote to pay a bill and wrongly cashed it, you can legally pursue that person and possibly your own bank as well as the bank that cashed the check.
But you do still owe your trash company and should pay it. This time I recommend... Read more »
They are not my mortgage company, and i am at the point of screaming into the phone that i do not want to talk to them.

A Tennessee attorney could advise best, but your question remains open for five weeks.

You should probably consult a lawyer to review the contract. If any part of the agreement seems questionable you should make sure of what you are being asked to sign before you sign. There might be more problems than you notice.
Also look at the State of Tennessee website:... Read more »

A Tennessee attorney could advise best, but your question remains open for two weeks. It doesn't make sense for a provider or billing company to jeopardize payment for medical services by submitting procedures (or supporting documentation) out of sequence; further, the claims examiner should...

I signed a loan contract for 4.90% APR, dealership sent contract to lender showing 4.99% and forged my signature on the contract.
Is it worth pursuing? Only option given by dealership is signing an updated contract for 4.99APR.
Car purchased in Nashville, I reside in Cincinnati.
answered on May 24, 2023
You might inform seller you are paying only the actual contract amount of 4.9%. Especially in OH it will be difficult to repossess. Tell them if they have a problem you will call Davidson County Sheriff about the Forgery, which a lawyer cannot do.

You should consult a lawyer who practices construction law and is familiar with the licensing requirements and work. From your description, the contractor made a mistake and you should not have to pay for his mistake. You seem to have bargained for something other than what they are offering to do... Read more »

If they had reason to believe that the water leak was coming from your unit then their conduct would likely fall under the emergency exception to the notice requirement under the lease and the landlord tenant act.

No. It is very common because cars frequently depreciate more than the amount paid early in the term of a car loan.
I purchased a tax sale property in Jan. i did my due diligence before i even brought it. I was assigned the property On April 1. I found out they condemned the property in feb when I went to try to sell it out. I was defrauded out of my money and I want my money back plus more.

Unfortunately tax sales sometimes purchase nothing. However it can also clear a title. Did you search the Title? There are probably some code complaints filed. You also have to get a Deed not just the bill of sale, and deal with the owners/heirs redemption rights. It is doubtful that any... Read more »
I got sue from the fitness center from breaking the 3 year agreement when I'm not even signed I was out of the country when the agreement was signed it was my husband who signed the contract so my question is,is this contract valid?
answered on Apr 28, 2023
If there is a judgment, then you must attack it for lack of jurisdiction. The merits may not help. Hire an attorney or prepare to be garnished/executed upon, where you need to assert your exemptions.
I purchase jan 11 and they still havent paid taxes so i don't have tags or registration. Was only given a ten day temp. Im in Tn, dealer was in Alabama but he brought the car to my home in Tennessee, where we signed the documents.

It sounds like the contract is in AL, so call an AL attorney.
I volunteered to have it repossessed and I was told I would be left with the outstanding balance to pay when the vehicle is being repossessed

You might want an attorney to work out a compromise, so that no note deficiency is outstanding. The threat of Chapter 7 Bankruptcy might give you leverage. Also you might record and serve a Notice of Exempt Property.

It sounds as if the contractor may not be properly licensed or doing work he is not licensed to do. This may violate the contractors licensing statutes and the Tennessee Consumer Protection Act. The TCPA allows for treble damages and attorney's fees. This can get pretty complicated --- you... Read more »

That is a Federal Crime.
(Please don't tell me I need to hire a lawyer). This is for a silly debtors examination that is 4 counties and 100 miles away and I have already submitted written answers. I can't imagine they will "chase" me down over this in another county? What typically happens in a case like this?
answered on Jan 24, 2023
The next possible steps are a show cause and then a body attached (arrest warrant). Depends on how aggressive the creditor wants to get.
They know I have no assets, so they are doing it as a form of harassment ( I have already submitted written answers). It also requires me to travel 100+ miles. If I do have to go, what techniques can I use to make it as expensive as possible for them so they finally understand their ROI is zero? I... Read more »
