Kevin M Rogers' answer "Secondary paper" is bought and sold all the time, so yes, its legal for a business to sell whatever accounts they have collect on or sell to "bundle" or sell separately. However, upon googling "Geyron Zaugg," there doesn't seem to be any information on him. From your question I gathered that Mr. Zauugg worked for SHS? If so, then SHS is absolutely liable for any double billing and assuming you caught the mistake before you actually sent double payments, then I don't think you have any...
Kevin M Rogers' answer Why don’t you ask your mother to quit claim her interest in the property to you? Partitioning this property won’t answer the question of what money you might owe to your mother? As for your question, this is not a difficult situation for an experienced attorney to handle, and if you know what you’re doing why don’t you do it yourself? Any lawyer you hire is going to charge you a retainer but I can’t imagine why that would make the situation you find yourself worse.
Michael Hales' answer The prior owners will be responsible, but the new ones may be as well depending on the sales agreement when they purchased the business. You may want to talk to an attorney who can review all the facts of your situation.
Michael Hales' answer Depending on the amount of money involved, I'd recommend just working this out with the office. I assume that their argument is that they gave you a discount for a long-term service agreement, but without any writing, this will be difficult for either side to prove, leaving you with the obligation to pay a pair fee.
Michael Hales' answer Sounds like you have a claim for breach of contract. However, this is an area of law that has many exceptions and rules, so I recommend having an attorney review the situation, especially if it's a substantial amount of money.
Michael Hales' answer I had a very similar case in Orlando a few years back. The parties were planning a joint venture, but it never went through. Unfortunately, my client made some verbal promises that the other party relied on and started moving forward as if they agreement had been made. My client didn't stop him even though he knew this was going on. Keep in mind that verbal contracts will be enforced if there is evidence (like some action being taken by the other party) that an agreement was made. This case...
F. Anthony Bullock's answer Courts in most states would construe such an arrangement as a gratuitous promise, unsupported by consideration, and therefore unenforceable at law. In short if you attempted to engage in litigation to recover the requested sum it is unlikely that you will be successful.
Adam Studnicki's answer First place to look is the terms and conditions of your order form. The UCC might apply. Talk to a local lawyer.

Zaher Fallahi's answer This depends on the terms of the rental contract. Generally, ordinary tear and wear in the regular course of business may be borne by the owner. If storm was reasonably expected in the area and under the circumstances, this may be covered by the owner. Read the fin lines of the contract and consult a local business lawyer.
