The shop replaced the converter and billed me for ALL parts and labor. My auto insurance reimbursed me for the costs... Read more »

You would have to prove that the shop knew there was a security problem there. As in, it's happened before there very often, but they failed to warn you or take steps to increase security. If no police reports are filed, that would be very difficult to prove. You may be able to search police... Read more »
Sold an item on eBay to a recipient in Ohio, but the item was mislabeled and sent to a previous customer (Facebook marketplace) in North Carolina. The NC person reached out to me over facebook messenger stating they have the package. They initially agreed to send it out to the correct person... Read more »

If the name on the label was theirs, this is most likely not a crime. You mistakenly labeled the package. You could always try and file a police report, Depending upon the value of the item you may choose to sue the party in small claims court. The lawsuit would have to be filed in the county where...

Im honestly confused do i go to the court house to fill out a form i cant find anything online?
answered on Feb 27, 2022
There is no official NC Courts/Administrative Office of the Courts "form" for this application. Check with the Clerk of Court, some clerks will give you the form over the counter. Otherwise, you will need to get it from Legal Aid or a local attorney. Reaching out to a local attorney is... Read more »
We live in NC. I never knew that tenants by the entirety existed until after we executed the deed. I added her name because I'm significantly older than her and thought it was probably a good idea. We were dating when I bought the house. We have had a joint bank account since before the... Read more »

Without more information, I cannot give a definitive answer, but unless you had actual knowledge that the lawsuit was imminent you are likely okay.

Most mortgages have a due on transfer clause in the contract, which means that they could require full payment of the remaining balance of the loan. You should contact the mortgage provider to see what your options are.
We have been going to them for over a year with zero complaints. The manager says my dog hurt himself. They were rude and refuse to help me understand. We took him to a vet and the vet confirmed he was strangled to death. The company refuses to show me the video footage from today that would prove... Read more »

You would need to sue them and then as part of the suit demand to see all videos that they took of your dog that day.
While interviewing for a chain restaurant GM position mid Dec of 2019 I was asked what annual salary I would accept to leave where I was currently employed and work there.

Yes. You can take action. You should hurry though because you are running up against the statute of limitations. You should be able to use the documentation and text messages that you already have in your possession. You may take the restaurant to small claims court for the difference in the amount...

A will is not valid if the testator lacked capacity at the time or if it was the product of undue influence. You can contest the will if you think that is what happened but you must act quickly or you will lose any rights you might have had. Look for a probate or will contest attorney in the... Read more »

Complaint to corporate. Give negative ratings on the product and on the store. You can't sue them in small claims because they are not an NC corporation. Court costs alone for District Court are over $150.00. The money you lost is not worth filing a lawsuit over. Stop giving them your... Read more »
I bought a boat and trailer in NC. The person who sold me the boat and trailer failed to send in the trailer title to be transferred to his name. When he sold me the boat he gave me a bill of sale and said that was enough to get the title under my name. When I went to the DMV they said that they... Read more »

You can threaten to sue or actually sue. Both of these actions might induce him to act as he should.
The abandoned office is in Charlotte NC and was their only NC office. There is nobody here to receive the summons. Their HQ is in GA, where we know the summons will be received.

You cannot file in small claims court if the defendant is not a resident of the same county. Your only option is the district court, sorry.
6,000. They offered a settlement of around 1500. I was able to send in $550 but was unable to settle as soon as they wanted. I continued to stay in contact but they voided the settlement.

More details are needed. Was this an internet "payday loan"? if so, they are unlikely to sue. If this was a local finance company or a bank, they might sue or they might not. We do not have wage garnishment in North Carolina. If this is an out of state lender they may sue you in that... Read more »

You might possibly be able to get them to give you the car back if you make all past due payments plus pay late charges - but they can legally refuse to agree to do that, and they can demand you pay off the loan in full - just because of missing one payment. You loan agreement most likely says any... Read more »

They marketed it as a completely new event, changed the price, and refuse to offer deposits back.

This new world comes with new problems.

My temp tag is expiring soon and I don’t yet have a tag or title. The dealer is saying they need more time to get the title. What should I do next?
answered on Jun 17, 2020
I assume the bike has an NC title. If it has been more than 60 days since you purchased the vehicle, they have not delivered the title on time. They were required to disclose to you in writing they did not have the title in their possession when you bought it. If they don't give it to you... Read more »

The paperwork has Tenant and CoSigner on the lease, with Tenant's family listed as occupants. When filing for summary ejectment, do I need to include Tenant's wife and CoSigner's wife on the court paperwork?
answered on Jun 1, 2020
Only those parties that signed the lease are the responsible parties. Spouses are not responsible simply because they are spouses, nor are people simply listed as occupants.
