Almost all new vehicles in the United States are sold with a warranty. The terms and conditions of the warranty govern your daughter’s rights and the manufacturer’s obligations. Most such warranties require the manufacturer to make necessary repairs within a reasonable time. Many states have...View More
I bought kitchen cabinets in March, which the manufacturer shipped to Lowes' delivery agent around May 1. They were intended to be installed in June, but due to ongoing construction delays we have had to reschedule the delivery date several times, most recently to... View More
The paperwork you signed probably says that you must pick up the cabinets upon notice of delivery or something to that effect. There is no law saying that they cannot charge a storage fee or that they have to disclose it to you beforehand. You should seek out alternative locations to store them if...View More

Most likely you do owe them...View More

The Federal judgment does not "supersede". You need to resond to the Notice of Right and claim your exemptions on time. The State court judgment creditor can have the Sheriff take any non exempt assets with a writ of execution. The two judgments are independent of the other. There are...View More
We bought the car on the first of the year. Financing is fine, insurance is fine. Dealership issued a 30 day tag, which expired on the 30th. We now cannot drive the car, because the dealership never sent us a permanent plate when we realized they’d registered it to me and a complete stranger, as... View More
A car dealer can still require a cash down payment even when you trade in the car. The TILA disclosures should credit the trade in allowance and the cash down payment against the purchase price and tax, title and license.
TILA does not mean they cannot require a cash down payment. TILA...View More

They told me I have to make a down payment to get a car and have car insurance beforehand. I was reading up thats possible to get your money back if you write a letter outlying the codes they violated.
I'm not sure where you read this, but requiring a down payment on a lease and proof of full coverage insurance is not illegal. Any right of recission would exist immediately after you signed the contract, and only for a limited time. You are asking if you can sign a long term contract, pay on...View More
