I will be out of state due to work the next week. Me and my girlfriend are trying to get an apartment and I want her to be able to fill out applications and with any luck an apartment lease while I am gone. Can this be done with a power of attorney?
If you are refinancing your home, the bank is required by law to give you 3 business days to change your mind and cancel. So the bank doesn't allow the funding to be released for 3 business days. The bank rarely will send the funds early to the title company, but they will tell them not to...Read more »
he doesnt want to fulfill what's in the contract. He gave me options whether I stop asking him for things based on the contract or he will take me to court and exercise the letter of law. I am a paying tenant, I never pay my rent late, even during my business' shutdown due to COVID19. I... Read more »
I am sorry that you are in this situation. I am not sure that you have a question in your comments. It does sound like you are on the right side of the law and you could start enforcing the breach of contract actions that are most likely listed in your agreement. Maybe there is a...Read more »
I am 17 and about to go into college. My birthday falls in a weird place and I do not turn 18 until two months after the school year starts. I have an arrangement with a friend to share an apartment because neither of us can afford to stay in the dorms. My parents are okay with this and are willing... Read more »
The answer lies in the state where you will be going to school. Whether or not you can sign a contract with someone will depend mostly on them. If they want to let you sign it and then try to enforce it later when it was signed by a minor, that is the landlord's problem. They might still...Read more »
If the condo is in Nevada, then you will need an opinion from a Nevada attorney. Suing someone for interference with a contract is possible, but normally you have to prove exactly how much money you lost. If you sell the home to someone new, and get the same amount as was in the original contract,...Read more »
It looks like some of the other ordinary resources that post UCC 9-105 (Control of Electronic Chattel - Paper) do not include them. You posted under Admiralty/Maritime - I checked but could not find cross references under ordinary maritime laws I work with. The attorneys familiar with banking...Read more »
Old roommate broke lease when we moved out a month early, we paid rent to her for last month of lease and she moved out right after us breaking the lease which she was also on, we were sued and had to pay full amount plus interest and fees as she moved to California
You don't have to sue her in California, you only have to get her served there. You can sue her in Utah. I would suggest going through the small claims court here. If you know where she lives, then file suit here, hire a process server to serve her the summons and complaint, if she...Read more »
Currently I work as an exotic dancer and I am licensed with an SOB license. If I go in front of a judge and am found guilty of this, would that revoke my license, I can't find anything online regarding it, it says I need to tell them any past arrests but not what would revoke it. I can't... Read more »
The answer would depend on which municipality issued your SOB license. It also depends on what exactly you are being charged with. An arrest or conviction could possibly impact your license. You should contact an attorney immediately if you have been charged in connection with the recent protests....Read more »
Definitely. When you cosign, the person you are helping gets a house or car and you normally get nothing. If that is the case, and you have to make the payments, you can demand that they give you the house or car, or at a minimum make their own payments.

We are supposed to close and fund on April 16th with the buyer using a FHA loan. We found out today that they changed to a USDA loan and could possibly delay funding past April 16th. I am paying for a moving company to move to Texas, closing on a new home on April 16th in Texas, and have to start a... Read more »
You only have 3 days to cancel the lease agreement if the lease agreement gives you that option. There is no state or federal statute that will give you that right. If the place is deficient or "uninhabitable" then you would be able to cancel on the ground that the Landlord is breaching...Read more »

If your eviction is still pending, a landlord-tenant attorney could advise in the best manner - or given the difficult situation, you may have already decided to start looking into other places at this point. Good luck
I accepted a new job offer and it requires me to put in my 2-weeks notice to my current employer on the same day I get my 2019 performance bonus paid out. Does my current employer have any legal right to clawback my bonus if it has already cleared in my account?
No. Bonuses, though voluntarily paid on top of other compensation by your employer, are still considered wages in the eyes of the IRS. Bonuses are paid for past performance, with the hope that you will continue to work at that level.
Once they have paid you, they can't take it back....Read more »
I was promoted to a manager position in September. This was to come with a $.50 increase in my wage. I've just noticed today on a pay slip that my wage had not changed at all. After looking over this, my GM raised my wage to the appropriate amount but refuses to back pay as she does not have... Read more »
You can take them to small claims court. It will cost at least $100 to file the claim. You will need to show proof of when you were made a manager and started doing work that managers do. You will want to weigh the effects of suing your own company with the benefit of obtaining the unpaid $300....Read more »
What do I need to do to get those voidable contracts voided or what's the next step to repairing the war zone that has become my life because I'm now homeless and I've lost a lot everything my life's work forgive the errors and no punctuation I'm talking into my phone
The four corners rule basically states that the Court will look no further than the four corners of the document (contract) to determine what the terms of the agreement are. The exception to this is if there are ambiguities in the contract, if there are the Court will look for outside information...Read more »
Lawyers are very intelligent and highly trained professionals--but we are not soothsayers; nor do we do crystal balls.
