They asked to rent the garage for 45 days after closing, now they want 90 days rent free because of the closing cost they have to cover due to the FHA loan stipulations! I had planned on opening my own business in this garage! Is that legal?
I am the plaintiff in a civil suit (domestic violence) and was counter-sued. I eventually had to go pro se because I ran out of money. The firm representing the other side has since taken to having multiple junior lawyers contact me and when asked about the issue, was told that rules of evidence... Read more »
I am unaware of any bar association in the United States that does not allow its licensed lawyers to split or share fees with any other LICENSED lawyer in any other state. So, unless the rules of the PA Bar Association forbid its licensed lawyers from splitting legal fees with any lawyers who are...Read more »
Yes, unless there is a written contract that says otherwise. Your very best bet here is to go through with the rest of the VERBAL contract and let the contractor finish the work he promised to do. (And get a contract in writing.)
It's up to the property holder as to whether they wish to respond. Common courtesy would suggest they respond. You may always submit a bid to the officers /board of the non-profit. But like any seller, they may decline if it doesn't match their offer. An offer of sale is for a stated price. Most...Read more »
We had a contract with a home improvement company. We did give them a few months as a due date in the contract date. They were little late getting done, but we found out some defects as the contractor never got permits. We had to pay for the permits and some work. The original contractor never... Read more »

Contacting "local authorities" will probably do no good because this is clearly a family business matter. And unless you can show some actual damages the courts will also be hesitant to get involved. Finally, unless the actual amount of money involved is very substantial it is likely that the cost...Read more »
Basement contract, upfront 30K no work 5 months. Due to family issues had to delay further since initial promise by contractor work would be completed in three months. When I was able to restart work told VP would contact me. Now it has lapsed over 2 years without contact by company or VP on work... Read more »
I worked at a daycare from December 11 to March 22. I was expected to get paid today and didn’t due to some daycare expense issues. I “owed” $690 in daycare expenses and had a plan set up with my boss to take out $50 biweekly. since I had to relocate, due to not having a place to stay nearby... Read more »
Let me break it down for you: If you received $690 more in daycare services than the amount of your paycheck--and then quit working at the daycare--it does not appear unlawful for your employer to withhold and apply your last paycheck to cover a portion of what you owe them. Nor do they have to...Read more »
A home that we are considering buying has a 3rd floor room that the seller is identifying as a bedroom. We do not believe that it is but we cannot find the minimum requirements that would deem it to be, or not, a bedroom. Thank you
Better check in with JAG corps on this--sounds like potential multiple violations. You should know that access is for the specific purpose only. Can you hand out cards, or other items? Not sure of that but if someone is looking to burn you you're giving them a match it seems to me.
How do I get around a breach? I'm trying to acquire the LLC and continue the current lease as is. The LLC owner wants to retire and offered to sell me his business. Would a partnership with the LLC be a better option rather than an acquisition? Another detail about this situation is that I am also... Read more »

In November of 2018 I received a notice from a sheriff’s deputy that a credit card debt that I had not paid was scheduled for arbitration for a date in July 2019. On December 3, 2018 I received a letter from the same law firm indicating that I had not filed a defense or objection in writing and... Read more »
The problem may be your "assumptions." I suggest contacting the Delaware County Bar Association for an attorney referral, and then sit down with him/her and going over everything. Knowledge is power, y'know?
