I’m leaving my current company who relocated me to Seattle. Like many of my coworkers we signed a contract for relocation money. Some people have quit or been terminated and haven’t been pursued for the money but they are coming after me. Can the company pick and choose who they go after?
This a brand new community. It's labeled as a recreational facilities agreement. It states: "The developer shall contract the following for the Largo Town Centre: ..." However, the community name is Largo Creseant. I find it odd that they would build a gym, gazebos, and tennis courts away from the... Read more »
Many people who sell or trade vehicles (or other objects) experience this. As a general rule, the law does not impose a requirement that money paid for something be fair market value or a good deal when it comes to the sale of goods or property. It could be whatever the parties bargain for, with...Read more »
I bid as an owner occupant, through the listing agent, on a HUD property. I chose to be the back up offer and should have had my offer accepted. I was never informed as I should have been by HUD rules. An investor's bid (lower than mine) was then immediately accepted. I only discovered this 2... Read more »
From the brief description, it sounds like the short answer would likely be yes. But you should look at the contract for terms that address whether arbitration would be mandatory in lieu of suing in court, as well as other possible conditions. Good luck
You could look for one on this site or through your own independent searches. There is no section here for "Acquisition" but there are sections related to business matters, such as Business Law, and possibly others, depending on the nature of your business. Good luck
Ask for the 13,000. I assume you filed a police report and can document the value? Note that the value you'd get in court would be the value as they were. Tell them you expect the 13. Chances are they are trying to avoid an insurance claim.
Although I am not up to speed on the current requirements as to when a Realtor can lawfully share commissions with another Realtor without actually being involved in the specific transactions I recommend taking the high road, like that required of Florida lawyers sharing legal fees with associates...Read more »
Based upon the information you presented--and assuming everything you said is true--in my professional opinion your concerns are substantial enough to investigate. You should consider filing a complaint against your Florida lawyer with The Florida Bar. Before you file a complaint is it wise to...Read more »
In Virginia, if the lease provides that the landlord shall provide wifi, cable and the like yet disconnects those services, the tenant can bring a claim against the landlord for breach of the lease contract.
It could depend on the terms of the underlying agreement between you and the photographer, in particular, what is said about the deposit. If that point is not addressed, it could be open to debate. Good luck
Hi, I live in Missouri and have a rental business. Every month I have to go through 1-4 evictions. Most judgments I get are never paid. This is an ongoing issue. To make things easier, I have created a spreadsheet that fills out forms for Rent and Possession, Unlawful Detainers and Garnishment... Read more »
Rent and Possession petitions and Unlawful Detainer petitions need not be filed using the forms made available by the Missouri judiciary or your local circuit court. I am not certain but believe that the garnishment forms on the available at https://www.courts.mo.gov/page.jsp?id=103116 and your...Read more »
The new landlord got the property I’m currently at in a recent divorce but I just moved in three months ago and the new landlord sent a letter stating I have till Jan 20 to leave and she’s not returning my security deposit that I’d have to get it from the previous landlord. I have receipts... Read more »
If you have a lease term- it can not be shortened by simply a change in the ownership of the property- unless there is language in the lease that would make the lease terminable- which would be unusual. Usually the new owner takes subject to the lease.
If it's minor, it could be inconsequential. If it is significant, it could undermine the formation of a legally binding contract. The state of mind or intent of the party to whom the misrepresentation was attributable would be a factor. Good luck
I loaned someone $3,000 in 2017. We wrote a contract for this person to repay me within 5 years. I did not require a monthly minimum payment. I did, however, include 7.5% monthly interest (which I later found out is an illegal amount. Monthly interest must be much lower). I wrote the contract in... Read more »
Every contract has to have consideration to support it. Therefore, if there is no consideration, there is no contract. A couple of things to note. First, consideration is anything of legal value and not just money. Second, even if the contract is legally unenforceable, the employer may file a...Read more »
