Unclear what legal options you have since you say you are beyond the warranty period, but so long as you made the warranty claim within the waranty period, the ongoing failures to remedy the issue will act to extend that claim. Warranty clims are tricky and must comply with the notice requirements... Read more »
This is for car insurance. Bank statements and the Allstate app for customers show that the account has been over charged. They are threatening to cancel the policy if additional payment is not made immediately.

With any billing question it may be helpful to first review in detail the fine print of the insurance contract and/or ask the person/company imposing the charge to show you where in the contract gives the right to impose such a charge. For example, a contract might impose an "installment... Read more »

Read your contract. The fine print. Did they promise you a specific vehicle by VIN#? Does the contract say they may get you an equivalent vehicle and may choose to sell the specified car to someone else? Does the contract say your sole remedy is return of your deposit or acceptance of a similar... Read more »
Thanks Mark! Is there a statute law in Maryland about the financial contingency? Is it possible to waive the financial contingency though the buyer need to get a mortgage to complete the contract?
answered on Feb 5, 2023
It depends on the contract, whether you signed a financing contingency, whether you as the borrower failed to follow through in good faith with the loan application process, etc. Ordinarily, with a financing contingency, if the buyer fails to qualify for a mortgage per the contract terms, then the...

You would use a general motion form. You should include any information as to why you did not show up in court, as well as any defense that you might have raised in the contract claim (i.e you didn't owe the money, you paid it already, etc.)
The task/job was assigned to me through an app called task rabbit.

Can the Doctrine of Unconscionability only be used for issues relating to the contract itself or can it also be presented for issues beyond the contract? For instance, if the person can prove that s/he is the subject of harassment and harm and cannot fulfill contract obligations, can s/he present... Read more »
answered on Jan 9, 2023
No, unless the claims are directed at the other party to the contract, whose harassing actions directly interfered with or resulted in the harassed party being unable to perform their obligations under the contract. But the defense in that scenario is not "unconcionability" but a claim... Read more »
I paid in full for an all-inclusive wedding where the venue would pay the third-party vendors themselves with the money I paid them. We are now three months post wedding and the photographer is withholding our pictures because they still haven't been paid. The vendor is refusing to respond to... Read more »
answered on Jan 8, 2023
So, I imagine you would like the photos asap. You can pay a lawyer to send a letter to the vendor to either pay the money they owe at once, or you will pay and then sue the vendor for breach of contract. This will cost you (1) to pay the lawyer; and (2) pay the photographer what you've... Read more »

Without reading the contract terms and reviewing any consumer protection statutes that might apply to your situation, it is difficult to fully evaluate what legal rights you may have to contest the renewal directly. For instance, healthclub memberships are not allowed to contain automatic renewal... Read more »
If my business is in Maryland, and the business is being sued by entities outside of my state/county - do I have to retain lawyers from these particular areas?
answered on Dec 26, 2022
You will need a lawyer where the lawsuit is filed, but your lawyer in Maryland can probably coordinate that and try to get the case moved or dismissed and brought to you.
Told by property manager not to share specifics of a contract because it is protected intellectual property. No NDA or other confidentiality agreement in place. No mention of confidentiality in the contract. This is for a proposal not a signed contract.
answered on Dec 16, 2022
There is no inherent confidentiality in contracts. An NDA is a negotiated agreement between two parties. You do not state your connection to the landscape contract; however, if a contract offer was made and it was accompanied by a condition that the offer not be disclosed to others or the offer...

In other words, can a plumber just give one flat fee to install a well pump and pressure tank and all associated valves and guages or does the law state they must disclose the cost of the equipment they purchased if the customer requests that they disclose it...the job is already completed.
answered on Dec 14, 2022
No, if the contract was entered into on a flat fee basis. If the contract was on a time and materials basis, which would be stated, then yes. You are perhaps entitled to all manuafacturer warranties on the installed equipment.
Wouldn't this be a breach of the proposal/contract?

Contract agreement in net30 but payment is over 60 days past due. I threated to place a lien on the property and then the company had their attorney threaten me with lawsuit if I move forward with the lien. Am I able to put Lien on property? what are my options?
answered on Dec 7, 2022
Take your contract, your unpaid invoices, and correspondence regarding payment to a lawyer to review. Whether you pursue a mechanic's lien or file suit for breach of contract, or both, depends on the facts, what is owed, who you have a contract with, etc. Management companies do not typically...

He did not hire anyone and tried to do it by himself and one assistant. Unfortunately, no contract was signed, and the original agreement was $11000.
