A South Carolina attorney could advise you in the best manner, but your question remains open for two weeks. But as a general matter in most any jurisdiction, the recourses would be limited. It's a private sale sealed over a handshake, no warranties, and no contract. Don't beat yourself up over it....Read more »
My attorney had me in emotional distress at our probate mediation, while he had me mentally under pressure after telling me that we were signing PR over to the plaintiff or its 5 to 10 years in prison he asked me to sign a paper stating my presence at mediation. It took me a minute but I was trying... Read more »
Basically I was trying to sell my used computer and I posted it on various apps and online marketplaces and I forgot to take it down on one of them after I sold it. I just want to know if those initial listing are considered contractual offers or are they viewed more as invitations to offer or... Read more »
FYI, 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." In this case the amount of money involved is way too small to be of interest to most lawyers; and you are advised not to worry about it...Read more »
You must give your landlord a reasonable amount of time to repair the oven. You should probably give the landlord written notice if the oven is not repaired within a reasonable period of time, you will make the repair yourself and deduct the amount from the monthly rental payment.
We are now having to tow the jeep. It has many issues that we were not informed about before the trade. We have messages where the owner told us the jeep had no issues. The car clearly had issues as they started a mile from their house, where we signed titles over. Is their anything we can do?
Probably not, because neither the Jeep nor the motorcycle are worth enough money to make it worthwhile for you to hire a litigation lawyer and fight the seller. Unless you want to try in a small claims court.
The organization is saying I can now only use my money on a short term trip with them in the next three years. I was only committed to going with them because they were helping me get overseas to work with them long term & they never told me of any time limit.
IMO, if the organization "gave" you the money upon condition that you make the trip overseas to go to work for them within the next three years, then you must either do that or give the money back--so they can use it to find another employee willing to move overseas to work.
Purchased used vehicle for trips from dealer paid cash. Told me he would mail title docs they were at other location of dealership ( in another state) month later docs reveal dealership never had title - I cannot get title or tags. See questions above. They don’t own vehicle so returning to... Read more »
You could try reposting your question in the Landlord-Tenant section, since it hasn't been picked up in four weeks. You are correct in that it involves a contractual/business law matter, but you are speaking of remedies of a company that may have arisen under a lease. What you describe sounds like...Read more »
We are going round & round with a current vendor and they sent us over a signed agreement/payment terms from 8 years ago that someone agreed to way before myself or my Controller started here. Trying to figure out how long these are valid?
If you actually received the goods, then the app/credit terms is a contract valid until paid or until the statute of limitations in your state expires. If you did not receive the goods per the app/credit terms, then there is no contract and no monies are due.
The company I left does a small percentage (less than 1%) of work that I would potentially be competing with so it would not affect their core business. Also, I would be providing only some overlapping services, and not all that I was producing at the previous company. Do I need to worry about an... Read more »
The answer depends very much on the exact language of the non-compete. SC law requires that a non-compete be limited reasonably in time (three years or less, generally) and reasonably in geographic scope, among other requirements. If you serviced customers all over the US, then the agreement MAY...Read more »
I'm 17 and I have been told I broke a few things in my car. One I will pay for, but the rest they claim I broke when I didn't. Can they legally make me pay for it, even though I'm underage and there was no contract?
Technically they'd have to show it was you, but you need to decide how much you want to push the issue. You'd come off more mature saying that you didn't break the other items but you'll be glad to help out by paying them.
Normally, with new construction the contract contains an inclusions list. If your inclusions list reads gray granite, floors and walls, you may have rights against the builder. If this however, was only verbal, then you had better get used to what he installed.
I am a Bariatric Surgeon. I recently resigned as a solo hospital employed Bariatric surgeon because of bad faith dealings on the part of my hospital. I had a non-compete restrictive covenant in my contract for one year, 70 mile radius of the hospital. Since I was a solo practitioner and the... Read more »
