I am a 78 years old and really need the money. I haven't done anything since Covid, but now he is back in business and... Read more »
Contact a lawyer who handles business disputes or a contract lawyer or a collections lawyer in your area----bring them the agreement signed by your partner and ask them the best way to enforce it, that is, collect the monies owed.

It sounds like you may have claims against the contractor - and defenses on the loan. It will be based (in part) on some additional facts and the contents of any written documents you signed. I suggest contacting a Wisconsin consumer lawyer for a free consultation to discuss your rights and options.

Today he received a letter saying that that has been rescinded and it is now going to be month to month. Out of 3 units he was the only one put on month to month and when he asked the landlord he...

Had he signed and accepted the offer prior to the rescission, there is likely nothing the landlord could have done. But if he rescinded before your boyfriend accepted the renewed term lease, your boyfriend in now likely going to be on a month to month. But that is not the end of the world - to...Read more »

You would be best served hiring a law firm that has both intellectual property attorneys and business attorneys. If your business involves entertainment, then you may need an entertainment lawyer as well. But most business questions can be answered by a business attorney. Best wishes.

A lease is a contract between the owner of property and the party who wishes to occupy or utilize the premises for the purposes and duration agreed to in the lease. The lease then is a contract. Inherent in every contract is the potential of one party to refuse, for whatever reason, unilaterally to...Read more »

There is a clause in our 3 year lease that’s titled “Vacating Upon Termination” and it states “Tenant agrees upon expiration of the term of this lease or upon early termination of the lease for any cause tenant will at once peacefully surrender the leased premises etc.” My question is if...

The answer will depend on the language of your lease. If you have a three year lease- without any provision related to termination prior to this then you have a 3 year lease. The language you provided doesn't sound like enough to allow for an early termination.

The landlord is stating you are in default. Why? It should be plain, by the terms of the contract, whether you are...Read more »
Mike is our landlord. Jeff rents the house from him and his name is on the lease. Jeff is subletting to me, and two other roommates. Jeff moved out but is still on the lease. We have been sending him rent money and utility money to pay the landlord and utilities (in his name). We found out today he... Read more »
It sounds to me like you need to get out in front of this with the landlord as well as the sub landlord. It might be a good idea to review the lease between Mike and Jeff to see if he had the right to sublet. It is likely that you may be evicted, and if the PEPCO bill is in your name, you might...Read more »
