A remainderman cannot also have a life estate. The interests merge and he would have the fee, although it occasionally may not be absolute and subject to other encumbrances or conditions. It is possible for others to have simultaneous life estates which encumber the other's fee. I suggest...Read more »
This is a hard question to understand. Do you currently have a sole proprietorship? Or will it be a new one? Nothing is required to establish a sole proprietorship. Your income is reported on Form 1040, Schedule C or C-EZ. You should be running all income through a separate bank account to...Read more »
This is impossible to answer without a review of the entire contract. 6-8 weeks is pretty vague. There are no doubt other terms of the contract. Any attorney who would say "yes" is letting you, a non attorney, interpret what part of the contract is important and what part is not...Read more »

Hire an attorney to prosecute an eviction action. It is doubtful that the occupant will want to present forged documents in Court. Even if he does, he has not paid rent, and the documents are probably irrelevant to possession.
Only the creditor can file a Notice of Satisfaction of Judgment. If you sent your demand for them to notify the Court about the payment of judgment in writing, and you have proof of receipt of your written demand, and they have not filed it, contact an experienced consumer law attorney. You need to...Read more »

Essentially I was promised the same type of equity the owner had as part of my total compensation. This is in writing through emails and recorded conversations. The owner was looking at an outside person for advice on many situations, whereby this outsider told me to take action contrary to the... Read more »
It depends. The primary issue will be what does the written document say about the "equity" and the effect your termination has on it. You should consult with an employment attorney as soon as possible.
The contract was signed by both parties and had a specific payment plan, the business was being financed by the owner for two years. The balloon payment was to be made at the end of 2 years. The buyer made payments for 17 months but has paid nothing in the last 28 months.
I am a tenant and owner of a counseling service, no longer holding in-person sessions at my rented office space due to the threat of coronavirus.

This looks like an issue that a North Carolina landlord-tenant attorney would know the most about. Your post remains open for four weeks. Although there are no guarantees that every question is picked up, you might have better chances of a reply under the Landlord-Tenant category. Good luck...Read more »
They requested a deposit of $1000 and in the agreement it says I agree to buy a home. The salesman told me this locks in my material costs for 30days. I hadn't closed on my existing home sale at the time and he told me not to worry everything would get going within 30 days. Lender he... Read more »
It's difficult to say without doing a full consultation that includes reading the contract and getting more information. However, as a general matter, a successful breach of contract claim will include the cost of lost profits. This is because the court is trying to put the plaintiff in the...Read more »
It depends on many factors, whether or not the deceased had wills, how the property was titled, what the marital status of the deceased was at their death, and who their legal heirs were. I would hire a local NC attorney to answer these questions, and from there, you can proceed forward.
A North Carolina attorney could advise best, but your question remains open for four weeks. It might be a longshot, as you were not the operator, but if you rented through a credit card, you could look into whether the card offered any type of protection. If you have a vehicle, you could look into...Read more »
we signed a contract on 8-17-2020 to purchase property. A week before the closing we were informed of a delay due to probate. The day the closing was schduled our attorney learned the estate was never filed. As time is ticking and the sellers are running out of time, our attorney and sellers... Read more »
The buyers can not give you a clear title until two years have passed since the death of the prior owner, or the notice to creditors has run in the local paper. How your attorney missed this significant detail, I do not know. I can only guess that you were paying cash and did not ask for title...Read more »
We signed a contract 5 months ago, they installed everything but the gates and 39' of fencing. They are not communicating with us and have failed to finish the project. It's a safety issue to not have the gates and we'd like to install them ourselves at this point. Can we legally... Read more »
I am sorry to hear that this happened to you. It is good that you asked prior to doing anything. It is always important to look to the contract first. Basically, look at your contract and see if there are provisions governing when the fence must be installed, when your payments must be made, and...Read more »
The first place you should look is your purchase contract with the dealership. See what rights and obligations you have regarding the purchase. If you have an option to return the truck, or have the dealership repair it, the purchase contract should outline your rights.
They have not done anything about it and i have a seven year old. it comes from the bathrooms and all in the apartment.. it seems to be coming from the venting system. i spray light candles ect. What can i do about this? im worried about my child and myself
I am sorry to hear that you are experiencing these problems. As for ensuring the landlord does something, the first place you should check is in your lease. I would not be able to tell you whether you have the right to enforce certain prohibitions in your lease, such as a smell penetrating your...Read more »
