Hello everyone. I worked at and purchased a solar panel system from a solar installer in Michigan. There is a panel that is not functioning and I have had no help from the installation company for literally 87days. The battery was to be installed in 2022 when available. The battery is still not...

You will need to sue the solar installer for breach of contract. In most instances, the finance company is not responsible for the solar system not working. All it did was provide money pursuant to a loan. The company that sold you the system, and the manufacturer of the system, are legally...View More
So the situation is I have a credit card that I got behind on and was being bombarded with 2-3 calls a day on average totaling way more than the reasonable amount allowed. Everytime I would try and awnser to request they stop I would get dead air then disconnected leading me to believe they are... View More
You may consider reaching out to an attorney who focuses on consumer rights or consumer protection law to handle this matter. They can assist in assessing whether the collection practices violate the Rosenthal Fair Debt Collection Practices Act or the Telephone Consumer Protection Act, and help you...View More
You can be sued for anything, really. But based on your summary I wouldn't worry about getting sued. The plaintiff in any lawsuit is required to prove damages. I doubt this LLC has been harmed by what you've done, as explained. (I probably wouldn't have admitted to forwarding these...View More
He has several student debt loans. He has never defaulted, but I believe has an IBR or IDR plan in place. Can something be done while he is incarcerated where the collection or reapplying for the IBR or IDR every year stops? Can the
I do not believe there are provisions exclusive to incarcerated individuals. I think he'll need to contact his student loan servicing agency, or have someone do it on his behalf through a power of attorney form. I would think it's a matter of certifying each year that he has no income...View More
Curious about starting a website like Nerdwallet or Bankrate.com, where we write articles about financial products/services and have affiliate links to personal loan companies, credit cards, insurance, investments, loans, etc. We wouldn't provide any goods/services ourselves, but would just...

Perhaps. There certainly are regulations that personal finance websites must follow when selling or promoting financial investments and tools. You may consider investigating whether or not the website is required to disclose any material connections or financial...View More
My home went into foreclosure in 2020 and I sold it 2 weeks into the redemption. I got a 1099-s, discharge of mortgage from the vice president of the company and a closure of account. I also walked away with a check from the sale. I am being told that I have a $26,000 balance on my credit report... View More
The bankruptcy discharge prohibits a creditor from demanding payment of a discharged debt. However, it does not require a prospective lender to lend to you. Therefore, it is illegal for the creditor holding a discharged debt to try to enforce it against you, but legal for a bank to deny you a...View More
I recently bought a car from a used car dealership in MI that was greatly misrepresented. The seller was just a guy who the owner was allowing to sell cars out of his dealership, not an employee. After many issues, I sued the person and the dealership, and the seller has since fled the country. Is... View More
Do you have a judgment against the seller? If you do, you may be precluded from now going after the dealer because generally you need to bring in everyone you can when you first file an action. If you don't have a judgment, you will need to somehow legally tie the dealer to the seller.
The bills are presumably for the amount owed, which does not go away even when they shut the water off. In most cases, that amount owed becomes a lein on the property, which means it cannot be sold without being paid off.
Seller said nothing wrong with vehicle. Said the trans was rebuilt and had a recent oil change. Upon further inspection AFTER the purchase, break lights don’t work, tailgate sticks/doesn’t stay up, battery needs to be replaced, needs O2 sensor, replace ABS control module, original VIN... View More
Unlikely. Is this a private seller? This is a classic caveat emptor situation: until the point where money and title changed hands, you had the ability to investigate, and either negotiate for a lower price or walk away. Unless the seller warranted, guaranteed, or promised you something, I think...View More

You really need to find a lawyer; this is far more complex than you think it is. And if you try doing this on your own, without a full knowledge of the court rules and applicable case law, you are going to find yourself the recipient of a summary disposition, meaning your case will be over before...View More
Not necessarily illegal, and in fact that is or was a commonly-pushed strategy of credit repair shops. When you dispute an item, the credit bureau contacts the creditor for verification. If no verification is received timely, then the credit bureau is supposed to take it off your report. So the...View More

No you cannot simply 'rescind' a completed transaction. You MAY be able to sue for damages especially if the agent of sellers took some affirmative actions to hide defects and failed to make appropriate disclosures in the paperwork, but...View More
The entire transaction was uninformed, no reading or understanding of what was being signed, the resident lured to residential office under false pretenses.

I suggest you provide some detail so that a lawyer will have necessary information to help you.
What goods/services did you contract for? Who was the seller/provider of services? What date? Who is the debt collector? How much is the alleged debt? Why are you not responsible for the debt?...View More
Your question is cut off, but it seems like you are probably asking whether there could be criminal penalties for keeping a lost item that you purchased. The answer is, it depends. The most important factor may be whether you knew at the time you purchased the item that it belonged to someone other...View More

Yes, there is a time limit to file a lawsuit. The exact time limit will depend on what causes of action you state (e.g., which consumer protection laws you invoke). It would be rare for the time limit to be less than a year, but acting sooner is always better.
I purchased a used truck in May 2023. As usual, I called the insurance company to add it to my policy on May 17, 2023, the date I purchased the truck. A couple months later, I received a letter from my bank stating that since they didn't receive documentation of insurance on my truck, that... View More
A Michigan attorney could advise best, but your question remains open for three weeks. It isn't fully clear what caused the misunderstanding here - a local attorney could probably sort out better after reviewing the file in detail. But a financial institution can require insurance. Good luck
