I signed a contract to buy a property, then made a counteroffer which was accepted. Now the owner must pursue a quiet title and has not signed the extension of the closing date. Am I still obligated to buy?
It ua necessary to review the whole contract to know whether it can be rescinded. However, it is worth mentioning that the Covenant of Habitability is part of a lease agreement. You contact a housing attorney. Good luck!

I bought and fixed a car recently. When I went to go have it put under my name, I realized that we cant find the title and bill of sale. I am worried that if I ask the previous owner to get a new copy, he will say I stole the car and I will lose my hard work and money. How should I go about this?

If you did not hire the contractor then I don't think you have a legal basis to sue the contractor. But I believe it is worth looking into suing the sellers for violation of Missouri's Merchandising Practces Act (MPA). Here's a blog article that I wrote. Beware, Missouri's...Read more »
