Unless people in Louisiana do not speak the same language as the rest of the English-speaking world the meaning of the word "renewable" is not confusing; in this context the word "renewable" it means the contract is "renewable after the fifth month of the contract is (sic) paid unless notified of...Read more »
Teaching opportunity: The law is not designed to solve every little problem that comes your way during this lifetime; the Latin phrase for this rule is "De minimus non curat lex." Accordingly, if Louisiana laws regarding "rental law" do not contain anything about landlords requiring renter's...Read more »
If your contract had a deadline to pay the deposit and the buyer failed to pay, then he could likely be in breach of the contract. Depending on your default provisions in your contract, you could possibly rescind the sale. If he intentionally misled you regarding depositing money in escrow, you...Read more »
Unfortunately, you are now responsible--to the landlord--for all of the rent. If you default the landlord will probably sue BOTH of you--which might not be a bad thing--for you. Meantime, try to find a new roommate?
In most situations I am familiar with the dealer who leased the car has no authority to enforce the lease financing agreement. The financing company owns the leased car until the end of the lease, at which time the person leasing it has an option to purchase it from the leasing company. If they do...Read more »
You have equal rights to the leased property without a court order based on domestic violence. Either move and notify to our landlord in writing that he has a dog and is violent, or file a protective order.
Buyer's real estate agent has taken advantage of my elderly parents since the start. Buyer has failed to make payments on time every month since signing. 45 days have been given each time.

Assuming that you had the expensive dental work done the written documents you signed allow the dentist and the creditor to collect the money you agreed to pay from you; it doesn't matter what you were told before the procedure. If you are unhappy about the interest rate, contact a Louisiana lawyer.
Whether what the builder did was "legal" is impossible to say without much more information. I will note that there is very little difference between what you did (post a bad review online) and what you say the builder did in response (posted pictures of your signed contact online.)
If the title to the car is written the same way most are, the two owner names are either unconnected or are separated by the word "or" which in either case means the car is owned equally by the owners. If so, then each owner can sell the car, or possibly take out a loan against the car; however,...Read more »
I am not sure what you are asking. Can you please elaborate? In general, it is not uncommon for a credit to seek a confession of judgment in exchange for standing down on collection efforts for a period of time. The idea is if the debtor fails to become current on the debt, the creditor saves the...Read more »
Yesterday my wife & I both had a treatment session with this doctor who made us sign his paperwork which stated in his ad that there would be no charge if he did not get at least 50% relief during the first visit or he would not take one on as his patient. During both of our treatments, he kept... Read more »
You are probably not going to get any answer here because lawyers must have a chance to read the written documents comprising the contract for future visits before advising you. Contact a local lawyer.
