The answer to this questions depends on what you want to do. On the one hand, if the contract clearly states that there would be no refunds in any circumstance, probably you cannot ask for a refund. However, if there is a force majeure clause or a similar clause making exception you could be able...Read more »
Does it mean that the sellers do not have to the obligation to sell whatever on the advertisement?? If the seller sell something different from the product on the advertisement, can he be sued for misstatement??
It sounds like you might be a student. If that's the case, see if your textbook covers the issue of whether an advertisement is an offer. If it does not, you could find material on this issue online. If this is a real-life situation, more details would be necessary. Good luck
Determine if the warranty was transferable. Just because it was lifetime, that might have only been to the prior owner. It might not transfer to a subsequent purchaser. And even if it is transferable, there might have been some requirements to register and transfer the warranty. Pull out the...Read more »
If all tenants in common do not agree to sell property a certain way, then there is no sale. The possible sale price might make all three happy. But if no agreement, then any of them can file an Action for Partition. However the maximum sale price will probably not be realized by the Court.
The buyers declared residency as being CA, but have moved out of the country without disclosing that information to us. We're being told the check could take 6-8 weeks to clear. It has not been deposited. Their lawyer has not responded since we contacted them about the foreign bank/foreign currency.

Without knowing a few things it would be difficult to give you proper guidance. I would like to know 1) what the evidence was that you tried to get in; 2) what the objection was to it's admission? 3) what point was the evidence sought to be introduced? Did the case make it to trial? Was...Read more »
There may be language in the GAP contract allowing them to back out. Obviously you should get your money back for the contract. If it was part of your finance contract, you may want to request a new breakdown of costs because the Truth in Lending Act requires them to provide perfectly accurate...Read more »
I am presuming that the loan was documented by a written agreement. The terms of that agreement control. I do not know how long you have been sending payments which have not been cashed, but I would recommend that you review the agreement and if you do not have a copy, then contact the lender....Read more »
First procedural error was lack of proof of service. Second for lack of fees. Request for entry of default entered on August 28th after personal service. Defendant hires attorney on September 18 who demands dismissal of default. How probable is the defense to win on excusable neglect-given... Read more »
Hmm, let me consult my crystal ball about the chance a Judge will decide in your favor. Eureka!! It says you have a very good chance of overturning the default based on public policy!!!! The best things in your favor are your two TIMELY failed attempts while in Pro per, and the fact that you...Read more »
I'm an American and staying in Puerto Rico right now. I'm 18 and I signed a contract here while in puerto rico. Is it legally binding? I was born in America and I do not have a Puerto Rican citenzship.
I received a proposal on 07/28/20 for a pole barn to be built. Prior to the contractor ordering the material package, we had to obtain engineered drawings and a building permit per the contractors verbal instruction. I signed and accepted the proposal same day. Today, I received a revised quote... Read more »
There is no specific law. If you don't agree to the increase, the contractor is unlikely to build your project. You could claim a breach of contract, select another contractor, and if the other contractor charges more for the same construction, you could sue the first contractor for the...Read more »
It ua necessary to review the whole contract to know whether it can be rescinded. However, it is worth mentioning that the Covenant of Habitability is part of a lease agreement. You contact a housing attorney. Good luck!
I was rushed into signing a 2 year lease agreement via docsign without seeing the property first (although I requested to see it and they ignored my request). After viewing the property, my child had an allergic reaction to the carpet and things were not in good standing at the property. Was not... Read more »
You are in a bad position. The fact that you felt rushed and chose to sign without seeing the place is an explanation but is legally irrelevant. You chose to sign nonetheless. If you were not to pay rent and get sued then a court would likely find that the signed lease controls. You’ve raised...Read more »

Since your post remains open for a while, at this point you could consider checking with an Arizona attorney if this is something the person(s) appointed to handle the estate would handle - but if it was a matter of cash exchanged over a handshake, there might not be any record of it. Good luck...Read more »

It depends how your clause is written. As you defaulted before the PAUSE order in March, you do not get all of the COVID protections, including the voiding of guarantees like yours in NYC. You should continue to try to work something out. Once the courts start hearing cases again, my belief is...Read more »
A Hawaii attorney could advise best, but your question remains open for two weeks. As a GENERAL matter, if a contract is valid, it should be legal and binding. If it's a standard contract that has been used for years without being challenged and it contains the requirements of a valid...Read more »
