My lease end date is for July 5th. I sent a notice on June 5th as we were not sure if the Covid cases will continue to increase/ decrease before our move out date. I have moved out of the apartments last week. Is it possible to fight the system as I don't think I can manage 2 rent payments at... Read more »
No lawyer can solve a problem that has not happened. So if you are still planning to move on July 5, you will need to wait to see what the landlord is going to do after you move out An option would be to stay put, and then see what happens. That will make you a 30 day tenant not encumbered by any...Read more »
Their customer support literally told me that they won't release the funds because one client was not satisfied but they won't tell me what client. Sounds like something very arbitrary and impossible to solve. What can I do? Should I sue fiverr? I also see a lot of other sellers in the... Read more »
The only way to evaluate your potential claim is to have an attorney review your contract and discuss the facts in detail. If the contract was breached, then of course you would have some type of legal remedy. The procedure for making a claim, whether that be by lawsuit in court or by...Read more »
Depends on the agreement you had with that business that it apparently breached. Also, some agreements, particularly those entered on-line, have arbitration clauses prohibiting you from suing in court, instead requiring you to bring your claim to arbitration. You would need to have your attorney...Read more »
I invested in a property to which I have a promissory note and after the 6 months, I would be receiving my investments back plus the interest. The promissory notes specifically states the address of the property I have the note against. 5 months in to the agreement, the debtor sold the property and... Read more »
Basically you have an unsecured debt in bankruptcy but you may be able to be paid out of the proceeds of the sale. Was the property the homestead property of the person who sold? My advice is to immediately retain an attorney who understands real estate, contracts and bankruptcy law and have them...Read more »
Never been late a payment, assumed the agreement was month to month, never notified otherwise or paid any additional and never was given a new lease to sign. They said it is in the contract that it auto renews each year (12 years ago, who knows?). Is that legal for them to keep me in a contract... Read more »
You must read your 12-year old lease to determine if it has an auto-renewal clause, which CANNOT legally say (in layman's terms), "This auto-renews whether you like it or not!" (If it were to have that, it would be unenforceable.) My guess is that it says that the lease auto-renews...Read more »
Lawyers cannot tell you what a rental car company is going to do under any set of facts. however, in general I will tell you that the quicker you return the rental car--to the same agency office where you rented it--and pay all the late fees and pay for the extra time you have been driving their...Read more »
I obtained a car loan to purchase a vehicle through my bank. I am still paying off the loan. I have been letting my girlfriend use the vehicle and am now considering gifting the vehicle to her. Is this possible?
If you happen to be in an arrangement whereby you take title to the vehicle after final payoff, though you may give permission to your g-f to use the vehicle, she cannot take title until you pay off the loan, obtain title, and then convey title to her. Alternatively, if she has decent credit, you...Read more »
You need to be more specific in your inquiry - WHY you seek a refund of your $50K. Did they take your money and give you absolutely nothing in return? Did they give anything at all in return? Did you demand your money back? If so, did they respond in any way? And what report did you see? I...Read more »
I signed an Employment at-will contract, which was created under our American jurisdiction, but I had to sing it in an another country. The question is related with the uncertain problems that I could have in the future. There is contractual term which indicates that in the case of any dispute or... Read more »
If and when the contract is ever raised in litigation (or arbitration), be sure to make your attorney aware of it. I don't know what the contract says, but "employment at will" is the law just about everywhere in the U.S. anyway.
In Feb. 2019, through a Stock Purchase Agreement (SPA), I sold my internet golf business, an S corp in which I owned 100% of the stock for $160,000 to a buyer and owner of an internet LLC in which he owned 100% stock. Terms were $22,000 down and $1500 per month minimum until Dec. 31, 2020. A... Read more »

You seem to be sending this "inquiry" over and over again with different wording, yet you do not state what your goal is. Are you a party to the agreement, and if so, is other party breaching it? Are you seeking to get out of the agreement? Are you seeking your money back? Are you...Read more »

Regarding the "contract" you made with your mother, it's not a valid, enforceable contract (even had you signed a proper signature). Minors do not have the legal capacity to enter into contracts, and even if you were an adult, the contract would not be valid for other reasons....Read more »
If an app advertises winning real money, and they really don’t pay out to anybody, would that be a good reason to sue for false advertising. Especially if someone spent money on in game purchases and got nothing out of it?
I gave contractor money for work that was completed incorrectly and will need to be redone, and money upfront for future work. Since he had never been back to my with several reasons and has only talked to me when I initiated contact. Because of this I told him to refund me and cease work. I told... Read more »
There is no special way to settle any case. The non-disparagement clause is pretty much standard in all settlement agreements; and you are being foolish to risk not receiving your refund by insisting on your "right" to bad-mouth the other side on social media. Perhaps the other party will...Read more »
