All I want is the difference taken off with the value of my car and finish paying the difference on my Loan
answered on Apr 26, 2023
A few things to consider:
The amount owed after surrender a car to the lender may be the difference between the loan and the SALE PRICE (not the "value").
Surrender may be considered a voluntary "repossession," and it will likely show on a credit report as such... Read more »
In May 2022 I signed a contract with a builder where no completion time is fixed in the contract. This contract involves adding on a small office space, approximately 250 square feet to the existing structure of my home. The contractor verbally agreed to a completion date of September 2022....

What is considered "reasonable" may vary. For example, if you had to order specialty materials and delivery was affected by the recent supply chain issues, a year might not be extremely unreasonable. However, the fact that the completion date was only agreed on verbally means that you... Read more »
I worked for a video production company in Charlotte, NC for about 5 years. I recall signing a noncompete when I first started, although I remember it only being a few lines of text. I no longer have the copy of it. I've started my own video production company, and I'm wondering what are... Read more »

Most non-competes either define competition or at least give examples of what would constitute competition. So, the agreement itself sets the expectations for what you will and won't do. However, a non-compete can be unenforceable for various reasons, including prohibiting too much conduct... Read more »
DMV said I need a lawyer for "claim and delivery" for vehicles. DMV investigated and put a block on my 2 titles so he cannot sell them. In early March DMV officer K.F. Dalton told the dealer (who permanently lost his dealer license in Nov 2022) to return my vehicles but he ignored them... Read more »

Claim and delivery is not an issue that comes up every day, like traffic tickets. So, most attorneys will go their entire career without ever handling one of these.
However, if you're specifically looking for an attorney who already has experience, you might try an online search for... Read more »
Senior stockholder has kept company afloat, and now wants to liquidate some assets. Today he referred to me as president of the company to a prospective buyer, when I have not agreed to serve or been asked to serve in that capacity. I am under contract as a Consultant.

Sure, a senior partner "can" make such a statement. But that doesn't necessarily mean that doing so is justified or is without consequences.
However, a few of the really important questions are (1) why the senior shareholder would make the statement, (2) how the statement... Read more »

Whether or not you owe the general contractor money would depend on the terms of your contract with them. If your contract specifically required the contractor to maintain a valid license during the course of the project, and they failed to do so, you may be able to argue that they breached the...

The general rule in North Carolina is that a person who provides contracting services without the required license is not entitled to be paid for those services. Essentially, the contract for those services is illegal and, therefore, unenforceable.
However, there is an exception to this... Read more »

It's difficult to address this in an online forum. Many facts are missing. It smells like scam to me. "UCC Liens and Enforcement" is supposedly the name of the collector? Have they sent you anything in writing at all? If not, another red flag of scam, including the threatening phone... Read 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.
answered on Nov 6, 2022
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... Read more »

A contractor charged an additional $8000 to replace his mistake.

Under certain circumstances, a landlord is allowed to refuse past due rent payment, even when the lease doesn't reserve the right to do so. You should consult with a knowledgeable attorney about your rights and options.
There was no contract. We paid the $800 in two parts and I kept both receipts. The venue owner has been very rude, and I'm wondering if small claims court is worth it.
answered on Apr 24, 2023
Whether or not you can win in small claims court (or any other court) would depend in part on the terms of the contract itself. You may want to start by consulting with an attorney who can review the contract and advise you on your specific rights.

answered on Apr 10, 2023
This isn't an easy "this or that" question. Typically, the contract itself says what jurisdiction's laws will govern. But if the contract doesn't say, then there's an analysis for assessing which jurisdiction's laws reasonably should govern. You might consider... Read more »
