We were forced to sign an agreement in door to door sales, we tried to cancel it but did it in an email after 5th business day. now the seller is not willing to cancel it and I am not willing to buy it. How to get away with it?
This all really depends on the agreement that you signed. But from your question, it looks like you cancelled the agreement within the permitted time limit, so you will likely not be liable for payment. You should be able to successfully defend yourself if the seller tries to enforce the agreement...Read more »
Hi, while my parents were trying to sell their business my dad passed away and I believe my parents business broker and the buyer took advantage of my mom while she's was grieving. She signed the papers to sell two weeks ago the new owner took over but she still hasn't been paid. The new owner was... Read more »
Possibly. Grieving is not a legal reason to avoid a contract. What you should do is gently question your mother and find out why she agreed to the terms the buyer offered? Was your mom represented by a realtor or attorney? Why weren’t you there to help her in the closing?
My GC is claiming items (specifically exterior doors) are not covered in the contract because their installation is referred to under the payment section (ie payment #4 of X dollars required when doors in existing house are installed), rather than in the top section of contract listing type of... Read more »
Based on the information provided, installation of doors is included in the contract. If he doesn't install the doors, then he wouldn't be entitled to the payment that is contingent upon that work being performed.
I hired a GC in August (with a written contract) that had an estimated timeline of 6 weeks to completion. It went well in the beginning, but he began to demand advances, which we naively provided via credit card. He continued to demand advances, threatening to walk if we didn't pay, while showing...

Your rambling post raises many issues that require much more information before someone can give you reliable advice. Signing a severance agreement and receiving money in exchange for that agreement may mean you have walked away from most of your rights against this company. However, the prudent...Read more »

Wife & I rented a home with a friend during the beginning of her divorce paying all initial costs, etc. After a short time, it was clear it would not work. After multiple attempts to discuss options, the only option she would agree to was her keeping the home. This meant having us replaced on the... Read more »
She can report anything she feels like, but I suppose you're asking if you are at some kind of legal risk if she does. It's unclear from your description if you're talking about just one solitary email asking for payment that triggered her reaction, but if just the one, there should be no legal...Read more »

Our company hired a debt collection agency to handle our delinquent accounts. We have proof that they collected on at least $9150 on one account. They never paid us & we have been trying to get our money paid back to us & they are unreachable. Where do we need to report them & what can we do?
You will have to hire an attorney to find out to to serve the Defendant. Then sue, hopefully in a Tennessee Court, but probably you might have to go to the State where you agreed in writing to litigate. Federal
Court probably does not have enough money for jurisdiction here. There...Read more »
I have a radio show that airs every Friday, I do not own the station or receive money for the production but I would like to advertise the show using posters. The radio station itself DOES play commercial advertisements but not during my hour segment. The poster that I have created uses some... Read more »
You should not use images that are not licensed for commercial purposes. Although you do not make money from your show, the radio station is a commercial entity. If you want to use photos for show advertisements, I'd highly recommend purchasing the correct license. You don't want to be liable for...Read more »

A co-owner has rights to the undivided whole of the property and could sign such a contract. What you need to find out is if the contract was secured by your real property. If it was a secured loan, then the solar company can ultimately force a foreclosure to get their money out, subject to any...Read more »

The brick subcontractor was paid short about 7400 of 29,000. He contacted me 5 months after his work was completed. I have already paid the contractor in full and now the contractor won’t return my calls. The subcontractor filed a suit in small claims Parker county.
Although this sounds like a dispute between the primary contractor and his sub-contractor (the bricklayer), the result might become a big problem for you--if the bricklayer files a mechanic's lien against your property. Whether or not they can do that lawfully is beyond the scope of this question...Read more »
