I purchased a new car in 12/19. All the contracts have been "signed, sealed and delivered", I received my new title from Sec. of State. I paid out of pocket (plus a check from my insurance co.) for the car, there is no leanholder on the title. Can the dealership say "oops, one of the rebates we... Read more »
I would not dismiss the idea that the dealer can come back for more money. The answer probably depends upon the written agreement. I would look at what you agreed to: You may have agreed to pay $X for the car, and the papers probably show the rebate as the source of partial payment, so, from the...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 »
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 »
I need to hire a lawyer for help with an employment contract. I've found one in town, but I live in a fairly small town. Should I ask the lawyer if my client is their client and avoid using that lawyer if that is the case?
Without seeing the terms of the offer it is hard to say what you can or should do. Possible remedies range from getting your deposit back and declaring the deal ‘dead’ to forcing the sale, or something in between.
You need to consult with a local attorney in the area where the house is...Read more »
A third party brought a judgment (not sure when) Judgement was $5000 and my wages was just garnished for a 19 year old judgement for $20,000. We have not heard anything since we agreed on $5,000 until his wages where just now garnished from another 3rd party who bought the judgement. The real funny... Read more »
With interest and costs, it's quite easy to get from $5,000 to $20,000 over nearly 20 years. Did you complete the terms of the settlement agreement? If so, that you should take that to the court with proof. Often times, a settlement agreement early on would say something like "defendant agrees to...Read more »
I moved into my apartment in November 2018. As of September 2019, not one item from my move-in checklist has been addressed. I have a ceiling fan that is inoperable due to the fact that it is not securely attached to the ceiling. I have a non-functional bathroom exhaust fan, which was inspected by... Read more »
You may be able to withhold rent and/or fix things and subtract it from your lease if the repairs are ‘necessary’ to make the place habitable but only if you follow the appropriate procedures to do so.
A better option would be to walk away and rent...Read more »
I purchased my home back in March this year and I wish to put up an additional garage/pole barn (following all local permit rules). Some of the neighbors have mentioned that this cul-de-sac was a part of a HOA years ago. This was never disclosed to me and I was never given any information during... Read more »
The most effective way to remove your name from the loan is to pay it off. Short of that there is very little you can do because the bank alone makes that decision. (Note: It would not hurt to notify the bank about this situation, just to get it on record that you are worried.)
Unless the landlord has significantly improved the trash removal services included in the lease--like going to a system where someone will be picking up your trash at your door--the current term in lease still applies.
Advice: If you contacted the company to complain and get all your money back you were wasting your time. Why? Because unless the crack in your "stamped" concrete patio has rendered it completely unusable or damaged some other part of your home, IMPO no court will let you keep a new concrete patio...Read more »
I am a licensed real estate agent in Michigan, but do not practice as one. I have a friend who lives in California & I viewed several properties he's going to buy, took photos, and retrieved info from the seller for him since we are both local and he isn't. At closing he has proposed the title... Read more »
Rather than go out on the 'net and do legal research before answering this question I will suggest an alternative that skirts around all the sticky legal issues: Have you friend pay you personally--outside the closing--thereby avoiding a paper trail.
My ex and I are on a land contract together however he refuses to leave, has no job, and does not contribute financially in anyway. I have made all the house payments, utilities are in my name, and I made the initial down payment. Only real claim he has is that I foolishly allowed his name to be... Read more »
No damages. It was a new car that I purchased and hadn’t taken home yet. The dealership put an extra 150 miles on it when my contract said 11 miles on the odometer. Shouldn’t they had it towed to get the moonroof put in and not driven it?
She was told she had to sign paperwork in January even though she leases August to August. Now that she has found a house to buy, they said she can’t get out of the lease agreement even though it doesn’t begin until August 2019. She’s been there for many years and she goes through this...

The written lease should specify exactly when it will come up for renewal, as well as what happens if the tenant does not renew at the time designated. Most leases come up for renewal about 60 days before the end date; and some leases will allow tenants to "holdover" after the end date--but only at...Read more »
