Generally speaking, it would be unusual for something like that to result in arrest. Breach of contract is for the most part a civil wrong. That means the remedies of the damaged party are usually limited to monetary compensation, specific performance, or other civil law-type measures. That is as a...Read more »
It has been well over one month. They have not contacted me and I cannot reach them on the number they provided. They had originally planned to bring me a cashier's check and pick up the trailer and title that day but instead paid by personal check. They were supposed to come back on the weekend,... Read more »
One month is NOT enough time. FYI: Most Americans have "put things on layaway" for more than a month. Whatever your obligations may be they do not include selling the camper again--at least not until you have truly exhausted all possible ways to locate the honest buyer. Go get a copy of his...Read more »
He wants to include the rent as part of the price we discussed. I say no, we've had this rental agreement for yrs & that agreement has nothing to do with the price of the land . If he buys he still owes me rent for land he has farmed and sold his crop for this yr. What say you?
Unfortunately, unless you are renting on a month-to-month basis, there is nothing you can do that will not cause more pain. You may be able to get the landlord to stop charging for unwanted services; unless you agreed to do so when you signed the lease.
During an owner financed real estate transaction, I signed a promisorry note. In a section titled PAYMENT it states I will pay the note back before 1/01/2029 via monthly installments, however under another section, BORROWERS FAILURE TO REPAY, it states "If I do not repay the loan amount in full...

I asked the builders agent twice and I was told it simply did not work out for them. I believe there was an affirmative duty to tell me if anything involved a defect with the house, so I assumed it was a problem with loan qualifying. I had studied the radon maps for this county in NC and did not... Read more »

Whether the document is notarized or not does not matter. This is a simple internal payroll issue. It sounds like the employer has allowed your husband to return to work but is also docking your husband's pay because he used more than 40 hours of PTO while tending to his medical needs. This can be...Read more »

Lawyers are very intelligent and highly trained--but we are not soothsayers; nor do we do crystal balls. Therefore, I am constrained by a fundamental law of the universe and unable to opine on your current dilemma. Try calling the leaders of the NC legislature and ask them why they have not done...Read more »
My Girlfriend bought her sister's car, she paid the sister a downpayment and then took over the monthly loan payment. The car is in the mother's name as is the loan. My girlfriend has no documentation to prove she paid the sister anything. Or any legal agreement to put the car in her name when it... Read more »
Your girlfriend did not buy a car - she basically has just been making the payments on her mothers car. Without something from the title holder in writing (preferably a contract) there is not much she can legally do. Chalk it up to a hard learned life lesson - sucks that she had to learn it from...Read more »
Original note was 144 payments of 550 due on the 15th monthly. I'm threatened with foreclosure all the time. He's changed my due date with no new installment agreement. I only have 4 payments left, but his balance reflects a balance of more than 3 times the amount I truly owe. I have 3 children.... Read more »
It sounds like you may have uncovered a despicable collection tactic used by some individuals to steal property from borrowers who are not paying attention along the way. According to your facts, the total amount you agreed to pay (beginning nearly 12 years ago) is $79,200 ($550 times 144); and...Read more »
The landlord/property owner pays for the water; however, they put in the lease that it is submetered to each tenant and that the tenant is responsible for the bill. They said this is in the lease because they have the "intent" to start charging for water sometime in the future. Essentially they are... Read more »
