I have been in a billing dispute with my hoa. They will not allow access to records or books as afforded in the bylaws. A previous tenant gave me a copy of the cleared check for a debt the hoa claimed had not paid. I requested access to the records they denied. They hired an attorney and racked up... Read more »
The association’s declaration and rules & regulations govern.
You would “have a case” if you sue and a case number is assigned. If you don’t pay the disputed charge then I don’t know what damages you’ve suffered. If you do pay the disputed charge and then sue, you’ll...Read more »
You probably need to move out. Whether it makes sense to sue your landlord will depend upon multiple factors, such as the lease's terms, your financial situation, and your landlord's ability to satisfy any court judgment that you might obtain.
PERSON A listed vehicle on Craigslist, with intent to pay off lien. Thursday, Person B purchased used vehicle with cash. Bank(LIEN) paid on Friday with said cash+. B called Sat to back out. What should happen next?
With limited exceptions, under Missouri law a party to a contract cannot simply change his or her mind. Courts are there to adjudicate contract claims when parties cannot agree and someone files a lawsuit.
There’s no way someone can tell you whom the court will believe. What I can tell you is that contracts for deed generally go badly for tenants. You should hire an attorney if you can afford one. If you proceed pro se you’ll likely lose, especially if your landlord is represented by counsel.
I paid a small business in MO to clean my townhouse and the job was botched. My landlord was not satisfied and took over half of my deposit to get the place cleaned. The small business owner that did the botched job said she will give me a full refund but I have not received it and she has blocked... Read more »
I am being forced to pay insurance on the property or face foreclosure. Even tho the contract does not state that I am to pay said insurance. Is there a statute of limitations to file suit for recovery of insurance premiums.
Have an attorney review the contract. Contracts for deed, in my experience, generally turn out poorly for the tenant. Missouri has different statutes of limitations for different causes of action. Breach of contract is generally 5 years but breach of a written contract to pay money is 10 years.
I had a sheriff deputy come to my house and detain me using a Writ of Body Attachment. I was booked into the county jail and held for 8 hours until my husband could get home from work , borrow money from friends and post bond.
This writ was issued in March (unbeknownst to me) after our... Read more »
You probably failed to appear for a debtor examination and therefore the body attachment was issued. I suggest you hire an attorney to review the court file (that can be accessed online from an attorney) and to give you advice. A body attached, as you learned, is a serious thing. A purpose of...Read more »
Your question is rather vague so it's tough to answer. You didn't indicate what laws are not being obeyed. If you add some context you might get a useful answer. In addition, you indicated that you are in Colorado but posted the question under Missouri.
I paid $350+ for a Walmart Grocery pickup order. One of the employees there got into a very heated conversation with me and said "I'm gonna F**K you up, you B***H F****T " among other things. Ultimately, I was never given my order and I had to just accept the abuse.
An attorney would need to review the contract. Even if you couldn’t pursue a claim for breach of contract, Missouri’s consumer protection statute, the Merchandising Practices Act might be an avenue for legal relief.
It ua necessary to review the whole contract to know whether it can be rescinded. However, it is worth mentioning that the Covenant of Habitability is part of a lease agreement. You contact a housing attorney. Good luck!
I was rushed into signing a 2 year lease agreement via docsign without seeing the property first (although I requested to see it and they ignored my request). After viewing the property, my child had an allergic reaction to the carpet and things were not in good standing at the property. Was not... Read more »
You are in a bad position. The fact that you felt rushed and chose to sign without seeing the place is an explanation but is legally irrelevant. You chose to sign nonetheless. If you were not to pay rent and get sued then a court would likely find that the signed lease controls. You’ve raised...Read more »
September 1st for the reason of paying rent late and my rent Payment was always coming from somewhere different each month. I am a single mom of 2 and just went through a divorce, tore my meniscus on my knee requiring surgery and 3 months later had to have a hysterectomy due to a prolapsed uterus.... Read more »
At the end of a lease for a term the lease converts to month-to-month. In that type of lease, the landlord can give notice to vacate if the rent is not paid. The tenant must be given the option to pay the past due rent and all other sums owed under the lease. If the tenant does this within the time...Read more »
The account number is missing 2 numbers. Example: contract signed at hospital. J1234567. Account number on bills they sent me after service have J001234567. The 2 account numbers don't fully match. Can I use that to get the case dismissed?
