Asking for my parents- They helped my brother by advertising and selling a used minivan for 2700 dollars. The woman who bought it test drove it and paid full price. She signed a bill of sale that said as is. Yesterday, a week after she bought the car she came at 9:00 at night to return the keys.... Read more »
Sorry to hear your folks are having this problem. Normally "as is" covers all problems, but there could be an exception, that is where the seller knows of a defect that cannot be readily detected. Why does the buyer want to return the car? As the seller, once the buyer took possession...Read more »
I am still trying to get this straightened out. I paid H&R Block to handle back tax filings. They never file my 2018 return. Don't these people have a fiduciary responsibility? I suffered a significant financial loss due to their inaction. Do I have a case to sue them?
Oregon commercial lease and a landlord wishing to sell your building and the realtor goes door to door claiming your closing and have no lease when you do. And the evidence was shown to be true and they had 3 law firms try a manmade default what would the law of limitations be time wise and how... Read more »
We paid a deposit for a venue in Oregon for an August wedding. Due to COVID-19, the venue is telling us we are being limited to 25 people. We asked for our deposit back and they are refusing. Not only are they refusing to return our deposit, they are telling me they will be grabbing the remainder... Read more »
The answer to this question will depend on a number of specific factors--and COVID-19 makes matters even more complicated. Everyone, including attorneys who assist clients with the law, and lawmakers...who make the laws, are in uncharted territory right now; unfortunately, you too are impacted by...Read more »
To qualify for deferral of paying residential rent, the tenant is supposed to have applied and provided proof to the landlord before the 1st of the month that their ability to pay rent is currently compromised due to covid-19. Good luck in getting a Judge to enforce that and it won't really...Read more »
What are my options? We have two months left on the lease. We have had to put multiple orders in for the same thing and we are told by the owner that he did not know and the rental company is telling us that the owner didnt want to fix it. The major complaint is the back deck is rotting away and... Read more »
First, be sure you have documented everything - the habitability violations and your requests for maintenance and yes, document EVERY request you have made (and put future maintenance requests in writing). Try calling your city building code inspectors to see whether they will come inspect and...Read more »
In light of the moment-by-moment changes being made to federal, state and local laws as all the governments try to handle all aspects of the Corona virus pandemic sweeping the world I have decided not even to try to answer any of the scores of "what if" questions being posted by askers...Read more »
Been dealing with a mechanic about 3 weeks. Ordered a part I needed a week ago told me it would be in within the next week. Asked him about when it would be put in this week. And now hes told me another week out, I decided to go somewhere else and now he wants to charge 20% of the price of... Read more »
It's hard to say but unless he promised you in writing a date by which he would have your car fixed I think you are being unreasonable and you should either pay for the cost of returning the part which he only ordered for you or just let him finish the job and have him guarantee in writing...Read more »

This is not a legal question. If you are unable to get financing than you have to take the car back. Period. If you keep it and refuse to do what they say, you will soon have a real legal question or three.
The buyer, without our knowledge, approval or consent placed an ad to rent our house. The ad was an almost exact copy of the listing description. They included two pictures of our property in the ad. They even had people scheduled to tour the house 2 weeks before the closing date!!! The only... Read more »
They would be entitled to rent the house once the sale closes. But it sounds like they acted prematurely. I wouldn't jump to conclusions without knowing the facts. Have your real estate agent contact their real estate agent and get this sorted out, ie no rental advertisements until the sale...Read more »
We lived in the same apartment in Los Angeles for ten years. The landlord let the building degrade over that time refusing to fix basic things like the roof leaking into the bedroom every winter from the start of the lease, not fixing broken security gates & doors, leaving the front gate of the...

It’s hard to say without seeing the lease and buyout agreements. In some cases, taxpayers can argue that a payment like that is actually a reduction in the monthly lease payments based on not receiving the value that you initially bargained for. In other words, an adjustment to the purchase...Read more »
My wife has a lease in oregon with two other roommates. One roommate is the daughter of the landlord. She also has a different lease from the other two tennants allowing her to have a dog. The other two tennants, my wife included, are not allowed to have any pets per the lease they have signed. Is... Read more »
Certainly - and is one reason to have separate leases rather than all on one. The terms of the landlord's agreement with one tenant does not have to be the same as with a different tenant, so long as they are on different leases. It also means that you can't get evicted if she does not...Read more »
Can they still increase if I renew? Usually, I get at least a 60 day notice with what they call an "offer" to renew...and always at an increase. If they increase by 7 to 10 percent, I might want to move, but without notice that doesn't give much time. Does the new Oregon law require... Read more »
First, although you do not say, I am assuming you are referring to residential landlord-tenant in Oregon. If so, then one needs to carefully read your existing lease to determine what it says about termination and/or any form of renewal. That said, you are correct that you likely are entitled to...Read more »
You need to start calling around for attorney's ASAP, as attorney's here cannot contact you (please don't contact me, I can't help you). Use the find a lawyer link above and find someone who does landlord/tenant or perhaps trusts and estates.
I'm trying to decide whether to stay on month-to-month rent or get a lease, and future neighbor NOISE is the main wildcard. My current neighbors are luckily quiet (for the most part) but new ones could be bad. The managers say they can't legally tell me when the quiet people's lease... Read more »
Sorry but you have no legal right to know anything about the rental agreement between a neighbor and the landlord. You may want to know; you may have use for the information; but you have no right to know. Ask your neighbors, perhaps they will tell you. Only you can make the decision as how to...Read more »
I was working with a guy on his business. I created a website for him and I was working on a crowdfunding campaign for him. I guess I didn't complete the project fast enough for him and now he is saying he is gonna press charges on me for fraud and theft and contacted a lawyer. Is this a civil... Read more »
I live in multnomah county in Corbett. The logging outfit has all but quit, with a huge mess, not fixing the driveway or regraveled, and still many trees left to cut down and haul to the lumbermill! I have 12.75 acres and this is a huge undertaking! I have bills to pay and trees to replant. With... Read more »
You will have to consult an Attorney because I would expect you signed some type of contract or paperwork and part of the answer to your question is figuring out what your rights or liabilities are under the contract. Sometimes you need to take formal steps like have an Attorney write a letter to...Read more »
