Possibly, however it depends on the contract. I would need more information regarding the language in the contract.

Any Mississippi lawyer can help you with this issue; however, if you are alleging that someone stole from you or a family member, the thing to do would be to contact law enforcement to file a complaint with them so that an investigation and arrest can be completed. If you are looking to recoup the... Read more »

I can't see if this question is linked to the topic I was researching. It concerned cemetery law. 2013 Mississippi Code, Title 41 - PUBLIC HEALTH, Chapter 43 - CEMETERIES AND BURIAL GROUNDS, CEMETERY LAW

In law, reasonableness is subjective and dependent upon the particular circumstances and people involved, so cannot be broadly defined.

Not necessarily. The only thing that the officer would need to establish would be that he had a reason to suspect that you violated a traffic law. That being said, the search of your vehicle could be challenged, because there is a particular process that the officer would need to follow in order to... Read more »
I bonded a friend out of jail and paid the bonds person $1000. Not even 12 hours later they picked him back up and said he wasnt ever supposed to be bonded out because he had a hold with the department of corrections. Can I get my $1000 back? Who regulates bond companies?
answered on Mar 11, 2020
Unless you can convince the bond guy to return your money you are out of luck. Why? Because they will say that they did their job--kept your friend out of stir--and are entitled to keep the bond you paid. Lesson learned: Don't bond out any more friends.
They want me to pay the remaining balance but that doesn’t seem correct.

You posted in Contracts, and you are correct. A lease is a contract. But if you reposted under Landlord-Tenant, you might have a better chance of a Mississippi L-T attorney seeing your question. Good luck

Contracts was a good selection for your question, but it remains open for three weeks. Because such a contract involves employment, it's something that an employment law attorney would know best. You could repost and add Employment Law as a category. Good luck

I called them to pick it up because i could not afford the payment anymore but they have not showed up for 5 months
answered on Aug 12, 2019
Yes. Why? Because--unless the "rent to buy" contract you signed allows you to cancel the contract at anytime--and also requires Aaron's to come pick it up ate your convenience you are stuck with the furniture--and stuck with the contract too. Enjoy.
