Hired a company to remodel bath/tub area. They put in wrong materials, wrong (cheap) hardware, total sloppy job. We had local manager come in, he said they have to tear out and start from scratch. Then we never heard from them again. Multiple phone calls to salesman/manager/corporate HQ have gone... Read more »
It sounds like you may have claims against the contractor - and defenses on the loan. It will be based (in part) on some additional facts and the contents of any written documents you signed. I suggest contacting a Wisconsin consumer lawyer for a free consultation to discuss your rights and options.
There is no one answer to this question. Whether you have the ability to end the easement, is going to depend on a variety of factors, including the original language in the document in which the easement was granted. I suggest reviewing the deed with the easement language in it with a qualified...Read more »
A Wisconsin attorney could advise best, but your post remains open for two weeks. In general and basic terms, a Request for Proposal is meant to solicit a Proposal from contractors. As for the Bid, to solicit those, a business may use an Invitation to Bid. If you're talking about a fire...Read more »
Basically, I want to purchase on-demand liability insurance for independent contractors that get jobs through my site and I want to know if it is illegal to make this purchase as if I am them if I have their consent in signature form.
A Wisconsin attorney could answer best, but your question remains open for three weeks. Insurance is generally governed by state laws, but as a general matter, if information falls through the cracks and the carrier raises a defense that they were not provided with accurate information as to a...Read more »
A tenant may choose to break the lease. The landlord is then under a duty to mitigate damages - essentially to try to re-rent the unit. The tenant may then be held liable for the months in which no rent was collected from the tenant or the new tenant, the difference between the new tenant's...Read more »
My "residential offer to purchase" agrees to ingress egress easement from neighbor owner for parking. "seller shall deliver a written assessment in recordable form". Seller owned both homes at the time. 10yrs using easement access, the seller never recorded the easement and just... Read more »
I am sorry to hear about this situation. Did the seller ever deliver the written assessment to you in recordable form? If so, it sounds like it may have been your responsibility to record it as the new buyer. Does the offer to purchase explicitly state who is supposed to record the easement? I...Read more »
Seller accepted offer to bump our offer, which gives us 72 hrs to remove our contingencies per the original accepted offer. We have removed our contingencies and sent back this information, seller refusing to acknowledge although seller's agent has acknowledged. We have met all of the agreed... Read more »
Assuming the offer provided that the bump clause could be waived by the buyer within the 72 hours and assuming that you provided the proper and timely notice of waiver along with any required supporting documentation per the terms of the offer, then you could enforce the offer. If seller will not...Read more »
But found out there’s a lien on the house with someone else. The person with the lien passed away recently. If I end up paying for the house who does the money go to? Or should I keep paying my land contract and he pays of the lien ?
If two parties are not legally married, I do not recommend jointly owning property with someone who is also not liable for the mortgage on the property. Once you are married, your husband can add you to the title, if he wishes via deed. In Wisconsin we have a special form of ownership where married...Read more »
I signed a lease with company A that random February 2018 to January 31st 2019. The lease has an automatic renewal clause that stated it automatically renewed for 1 year but they would sent out a noticing giving provisions for lease renewal. Company A was sold to company B in November 2018 and a... Read more »
When Company B acquired Company A your lease was also acquired and transferred to Company B whether you were told or not. so, regarding the issue of you breaking the lease and leaving early, you lose. Written contracts are written for a reason. And they are not easy to get out of.
I signed contract and offer was accepted for 1,000 over asking price plus 4,000 closing costs. initial closing was scheduled for june 28. Now they changed the closing to july, 20th without my approval. I paid for inspection and inspector says windows need to be replaced for the loan to go through.... Read more »
It is impossible to answer a contract question without reading the contract. That being said, generally neither party may unilaterally change the terms of the offer. In the present case, if your lender will not fund the closing without the window replacement, then the terms of the contract may...Read more »
I was originally going to move into summer housing July 8th, and the landlord sent me the lease to sign (didn't have a signature of the landlord). I filled out my part and sent the paper to the landlord. Afterwards, I could not contact the landlord whatsoever - Facebook, email, call,... Read more »
Based upon your facts the only reason you think you have an "incomplete lease" is because your copy does not have the landlord's signature on it; is that right? If so, the answer is tough darts. As long as you signed the lease you are liable under its terms. Look at the lease and...Read more »
As a general matter, if the information is material (and not some minor and inconsequential fact or detail), it could possibly result in dismissal of the action. How it is treated by the court could be determined by the mental state of the person providing the information, in that if it is done...Read more »
The name listed at the top of the document is First, middle, last name. However, it was signed as First name, middle initial (only, not whole middle name) and last name. I also have a copy of his drivers license in his whole name, but with the signature the same as on POA: First, MI, Last name, to... Read more »
My landlord just sent us a letter saying that we need to have a carpets professionally cleaned before moving out. However, the lease does not mention the house needing to be professionally cleaned whatsoever. The most it mentions regarding carpets is that it should be "cleaned". And... Read more »
So, I've been with my current landlord for 9 years. We are on an annual year to year lease. I was thinking of moving when it is time to renew this year, must I give a 60 day notice even though my lease expires?
Regardless of the term of the lease, to avoid all problems you should give the landlord whatever length of notice required by the written lease. If the lease has already expired you are a tenant at suffrage; but you still should give the landlord some reasonable notice.
Signed an advertising deal with Wisconsin based company which I am now in the process of terminating by way of paying an early termination fee. My question is since they failed to inform me of my right to terminate and no where on the contract does it state it, do I have grounds for a complaint?... Read more »
Unfortunately, not every written contract is required to have a free "I've got second thoughts and want an early out" clause. In fact, you should be glad the contract even has an "early termination fee" clause, because that is not required everywhere either.
