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It ua necessary to review the whole contract to know whether it can be rescinded.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?
Hello, I received a funds transfer on July 14th of $20,138.00. I called my bank and they said it was transferred from another account and could not see where from. I waited a week to touch the money just in case. Then I used to to help pay of bills. The day after touching the money I get a call... Read more »
This isn't the answer you want to hear but I believe that if grandpa sues you then you will lose. From a legal standpoint, I question whether there was any "consideration" given by you in exchange for his statement that he was not going to sue you. Consideration is an essential...Read more »
A Contractor I hired to remodel my home merely covered ceilings with new drywall rather than removing damaged, molded tiles, insulation, & wood. He did the same with plywood on the floors. This was unknown to me until after I fired him & hired a new Contractor. The floors are now COVERED... Read more »
You could contact the Missouri Attorney General's office. If work was done poorly, as opposed to your money being taken and no work done, unfortunately that office is unlikely to go after the contractor on your behalf. You'd need to hire your own attorney to sue but before doing so you...Read more »
There is a lot going on here. You definitely need to meet with an attorney. They can help you get copies of the necessary documentation and potentially make a claim to enforce the contract. Hopefully your requests listed in your question were made in writing. But as long as your contract is in...Read more »
Depends on the court. Depends on any scheduling order that has been entered. Depends on whether a hearing has been scheduled. Depends on whether your opponent can add a thrid party as a matter of right. How's that for a lawyerly answer?
A judgment in Missouri is valid for 10 years, so that fact that the judgment against you is 5 years old only means that it is still valid. If you get summoned, you need to appear. Consult with an attorney familiar with judgment debtor examinations, as there is an easy way to avoid answering the...Read more »
