Not really a big deal --- where it is clear that both parties meant and understood the correct year, the court will enforce the lease with the corrected year --- The correction of a scrivener's error is a court-sanctioned action reforming a contract or other document. We note, however, that a...Read more »
It appears that they got a new license number. Is this legal? If I am trying to get the contract voided would this matter? It seems very shady to me that the license number they provided on my contract, while valid at the time, became listed as terminated, on the DPOR website, about 30 days later... Read more »
As long as the contractor has a valid license number and the numbers were associated with him (and not someone else) then this seems OK. Of course, this doesn't mean the workmanship was sufficient, but from a strictly licensing perspective, this may be OK. If you decide to hire a lawyer,...Read more »
I discovered days after purchasing my car that the dealership slipped a service contract and gap insurance into my loan contract. I then called/emailed the dealership multiple times asking for a cancellation but they refused, insisting that my car loan was tied to those products (contract says... Read more »
Contract states Final due on concrete Completion but we are getting paver coping instead of concrete. Still a huge piece of the project to be finished. Don’t feel it’s fair to give full payment with a large piece unfinished and unscheduled.
Contractually, you're likely obligated to make the payment. However, you may be able to renegotiate on your own or with the help of an attorney for different milestones and payments. I'm sure anyone who responds would be happy to help if you decide to hire a lawyer. Good luck.
I was sent my lease renewal documentation the week before my current lease's end (Sept 2nd). I signed the Docusign and submitted it electronically on the 25th. The next day, I received an email notice saying that the document was voided by my leasing manager due to "incorrect rental... Read more »
In Virginia, the landlord can terminate the month-to-month lease by giving a 30 day written notice to the tenant/occupants. The acceptance of rent applies only when the landlord has given the tenant a notice to pay or quit for a failure to pay rent and then the acceptance of the rent must be...Read more »
Can I cancel said event if they were late are their second payment and I have reminded them 4 times when it was due? Do I need to give a reason on why I will no longer provide services for them? I want to cancel the contract but I have every intention of still refunding the non refundable retainer... Read more »
Probably. As long as the customer can find another vendor in time, the customer probably won't care, but you should certainly get a waiver/release agreement in place in exchange for the refund. I'm sure anyone who responds would be happy to help if you decide to hire a lawyer. Good luck.
It really depends on the content of the NDA and what you have done. Maybe it wasn't even a breach. You probably want to hire an attorney to review the NDA and the cease and desist letter. I'm sure anyone who responds would be happy to help. Good luck.
Sold a car to a former coworker in January 2021. A written agreement was signed stating she would make monthly payments until paid in full, and if she did not pay we would be picking up the car. She has not paid in 4 months, and she will not tell me where the car is located so we can pick it up. So... Read more »
previous tenant was on a month to month lease and had decided to not vacate, and was not planning to vacate anytime soon. They said the apartment is no longer available. I believe this is a violation of Virginia State Statute 55.1-1238 of the Virginia Residential Landlord and Tenant Act for failure... Read more »
Yes, you are correct. The question for you is whether you are trying to terminate the agreement or enforce the agreement, so you can take possession. If you decide to hire a lawyer, I'm sure anyone who responds would be happy to help. Good luck.
My daughter had an Instagram (made her delete it) she’s 16 and wants to become a model. Someone approached her saying they were a company, everything was pretty suspicious from what i saw. She said she was interested and filled out a form asking about measurements, phone number, address, model... Read more »
A contract with a minor is usually unenforceable and it doesn't seem like a criminal violation if they gave her the money (as opposed to her stealing the money). If she's contacted by law enforcement, reach out to a lawyer ASAP. I'm sure anyone who responds would be happy to help. Good luck.
We just found out the air ducts in our home are pulled out of place and two rooms are not getting the air (it’s literally just pouring AC out under the home), and many other small things that weren’t noticeably to the eye during a walkthrough
It really depends on the specifics of the job and the terms of contract. If the contractor is 1 day late that probably would not be a basis to cancel the entire contract unless there was very specific language in the agreement. You should have an attorney review the agreement with you and I'm...Read more »
They had a contract notarized and we’ve made every monthly payment on time and have receipts. Her stepdad was sick and went to hospital and diagnosed with cancer and told he had days to live. My question is in the state of Virginia will that contract still be good? We’ve put so much money into... Read more »
In Virginia, generally when a person signs a contract that person must be competent and have capacity. This will require testimony from witnesses. It may be subject to a Court case to test the validity and enforceability of the contract that you referenced.
Preparation for the Bar exam does not involve knowing a little bit of everything. It involves knowing a lot of some things, and it is exceptionally wise to find out which things from a very expensive preparation course that requires intense concentration and memorization of huge amount of state law...Read more »
I have a lot of friends, and they are concerned with today's environment, and most are unable afford life insurance policies. If I were to buy life insurance for them and split profits with their selected beneficiaries, would it be difficult for me to... Read more »
