Is there any sort of warranty on the vehicle? Have you had an independent mechanic or other dealer dianose the problem? Can they testify that the work performed is the cause of the problem? These are preliminary questions that should be addressed prior to contacting an attorney for specific advice.
We have made monthly payments, including homeowners and have been paying property tax. The only paperwork we signed was promissory note and vendor's lien deed.

Was this transaction (if a "purchase") conducted with a title company? If so you might have a claim under the title insurance and potentially the seller.
However, from the sounds of it - you still owe the original owner for the purchase of the property (If I am reading the... Read more »
The lease ended 8 months ago so we have been paying month to month since then. Now my mother has been staying with me and my landlord is trying to evict us because terms of a lease.

The question is premised on an improper understanding of the legal status of "month to month". it is not correct that you do not have a lease. You do have a lease, when a written lease expires without being renewed, it typically becomes a month-to-month tenancy, subject to all the same... Read more »
Would be auctioned. I never received a letter stating when and where my car was to be auctioned at. The next letter I received stated that my car had been sold and that I owe 6,911. Per their contract, I wasn't properly notified. What can I do about this?

Hire a civil lawyer to sue the car seller and seek damages for their breach of sale requirements.
I am in the process of hiring a lawyer on a contigency fee basis, to sue for tortious conduct for interference of a body. emtional distress, etc. What is the normal/good percentage for a lawyer for such a case?
answered on Oct 24, 2022
It varies from jurisdiction to jurisdiction. Typically, in Alabama, the minimum fee for a personal injury case is 1/3 of the settlement.
It is not uncommon for the fee to increase to 40% or even 45% if the case is litigated or taken all the way to trial. Complex or difficult cases, such as... Read more »

What does this have to do with Florida law? And what would "p.p" mean? Depending on the state in which the truck is titled, it might be possible for Mom to give you a power of attorney. Mom seems to be under the impression that she cannot allow someone else possession of the truck... Read more »

You likely need an attorney who handles contract disputes. Often construction law attorneys deal in large commercial disputes. A general practitioner or trial attorney will likely be able to give you advice on your individual situation.
Should we inherit or transfer deed into name and just pay the property taxes?

A Living Trust would be one of the best simple ways for your father to set up his estate plan. The real estate would need to be transferred to the Trust and the documents would most certainly need to be prepared by an attorney.

The specific language of the contract may allow cancellation on certain terms. The common law may also allow cancellation based on certain breaches or conduct of the parties. However, the analysis is very fact-driven. It depends on the contract and the specific dispute between the parties. You... Read more »

General statute of limitations for debt collection actions on a contract is six (6) years. If it is a credit card or open line of credit then it is potentially three (3) years.

If you want to get out of the contract, then you should take the written agreement to a contract attorney who works in a different area than the attorney you are having trouble with, and see what they have to say about the terms.
If you feel the conduct was unbecoming of an attorney enough... Read more »

If the contract is governed under Alabama law, you should look at the contract itself. ALabama is a very conservative state in terms of contract law. The terms of the contract will govern, and courts are very reluctant to decide that this is just unfair to you. You should hire a lawyer in the state... Read more »
Timestamp on video is different from what police says when crime was committed. Reports show Feb 2nd 2016 a control buy was made. Video shows it was 9/26/2009.
answered on Oct 24, 2020
No. If they have the confidential informant there to testify to the actual date it happened and also the police officers, then it will not matter what the time stamp on the video says.
The seller is 70 yrs. old and on disability and is not able to move. I know he should have thought about this before signing the contract, but he didn't.

An Alabama attorney could answer best, but your question remains open for three weeks. As a general premise of contract law, such a contingency doesn't generally provide an out. I'm sorry for this sad situation. Maybe review by an Alabama real estate attorney (if one is not already... Read more »
I want to start an LLC, as an absentee landlord & investor, I wan to employ a contractor whom will inspect my potential properties and sign purchase agreements, as well as other important documents for the procurement of properties. Is this legal to do in Alabama?

She is now saying that she used the wrong deed bc she and her late husband had resurveyed the property. So will the property be in my name or still in hers. It was also filed in the courthouse of the same county. It was also a quitclaim deed.

From what you are stating in your question it seems the difference between the "ol" deed used and a new one would be the... Read more »
