There is no survivorship on the title. I am not the executor of her estate. There was only one executor. She died in 2012 and this car was not part of her will/estate. The donation company tells me all I need is to give them a notarized inheritance affidavit and have a death certificate, but DMV... Read more »
You should give the car title with your signature on it, your grandmother's death certificate, and the DMV affidavit of heirship to the company you want to donate the car to. The affidavit of heirship should be signed by the beneficiary of your grandmother's estate. You can get the DMV...Read more »
This doesn't make sense. If party "A" gave money to party "B" in exchange for a promisory note there is a secured transaction. If you are saying that the documents listed party "A" as a New York Corporation that didn't exist, the fact remains that there...Read more »
There is just no way to answer that question with such limited information. When you go through the divorce process the court will evaluate all the property acquired during the marriage (and that includes property you had before the marriage to the extent that the value increased during the...Read more »
So I took my car to another shop to have the repair work done. The first shop charged me a fee for me to take my car out of their shop. I feel this is wrong. I need to know if I have a mall claims case against the first body shop
I would need some follow up information in order to answer this question. Did you have a written or verbal contract with the original body shop? Was there an agreement of a time period to fix your car? Did they do any diagnostic work that was contracted for. What is the body shop's...Read more »
I would contact a lawyer, preferably one that deals with bankruptcy and debt issues. I know you want to take care of this debt but before you do pay it, you might want to know if bankruptcy is a better option which it might be if you have a lot of other debts. I see people struggle to pay one debt...Read more »

This isn't my area of expertise so you will probably need to still look for an attorney that specializes in used car purchase issues. What I can tell you is that the buyer usually has the responsibility to completely inspect a used car before purchasing. It is wise to call in a professional...Read more »
I had a storage facility that was on auto payment. When my debit card was lost and changed, the payment no longer went through without me realizing it. I did not receive any notice from the storage facility, either by mail or email, that they were selling my property. I received only one notice of... Read more »
I'm not in my office, so I can't look up the statutes, but there are a few on the books that should allow you to go after the storage place. If I recall correctly, there are certain procedures that need to be followed before they can sell your items. An attorney can review those and your...Read more »
I reported damage to the company immediately. I got pictures of damage and I showed them to professionals. They said it will cost $300 to return to original condition. The max $500. Company with whom I rent house, saying it cost $2000. Do they have legal right to make me to pay this amount or I can... Read more »
If you have homeowners insurance, turn it over to them. They should defend you even though you were traveling at the time. You are only responsible for the reasonable cost of repair. The problem is you may have to prove what is reasonable. You would need to have your own expert give an estimate...Read more »
On black Friday the 25th of November 2016 I was informed by my Bank JP Morgan Chase that my account had a levy placed on it by the California Franchise Tax Board. The total amount in my account was placed on hold and still is. In addition to that hold amount, I was charged a $75 legal fee by my... Read more »
First you need to get the paperwork they sent chase. They can't just show up with a levy. Second you need to find out who this board is. I'd also worry the whole thing is a scam, so follow up with JP morgan at a number you get on your statement not on some email.
A lot is fact specific and your damages would be the cost of what you paid (or payment plus monthly charges). Suggest you write them a demand letter for starters--any judge will want to see that you asked. No, you don't get paid for hassle of it, waiting on hold, and other fun Verizon times....Read more »
The title company that did the refinance thought that it would be better since I had just started my own business but was less than a year. Now I am very concerned about this, My name is on the taxes, I am and always have been the one to pay the mortgage. He had a horrible motorcycle crash 7 years... Read more »
The mortgage companies are flooded with properties that they have to pay the taxes on and the upkeep and the insurance.
