I am an administrator for a small convention, and we are working with a hotel in Pennsylvania. The convention owner would like to tell the hotel that we (the convention) don't want to be crowded while we are occupying the hotel for the weekend (Friday to Sunday). We take up about 30 of the 180... Read more »
Your contract can state language like that, but I cannot imagine any hotel would agree not sell the rooms that you are not occupying. I assume that if you wanted to pay for all the rooms they would agree to keep them empty.
A Pennsylvania attorney would be in the best position to answer this, based on state law considerations. But the question remains open for three weeks. As a general matter, it would be helpful to have additional information. For instance, why did one company sign in lieu of the other? Was it for...Read more »

The problem is that the person who is leaving is the one that provided the security deposit. And I don't believe that the remaining person can afford the rent by themself. The lease expires at the end of the year. Who do I hold responsible? Who's security deposit am I holding?
I know the guy and he could rewrite those identifications to exhibit his knowledge about each of the patents. Also what does the 'grant' detail as a per say award to the person. Plus, would you be clear with returning the answers and does a 'grant' expire and who is eligible to... Read more »
There isn't enough information provided to actually answer this properly. If the local branch is a franchisee typically you cannot go after the franchisor. However, more facts are needed to truly respond properly.
My husband & I signed a purchase agreement for a new house. The construction will begin now. During the closing which will happen in November, Is there a chance to get out of it just for me? What are the circumstances that I might face?
I went to welfare today and told the guy at the desk I didn't want child support. After talking for a while and signing a few papers I found out one of the papers was to find the father after I told him I didn't want it done. Can I stop them from finding the dad if I don't want child support?
I'm not 100% sure, but it's my understanding that DPW may require you to seek child support before you're qualified to receive public assistance yourself. Either that, or *DPW* will file a petition for child support against Father to seek reimbursement for the public assistance you...Read more »

It was denied and the window company reapplied seperately to different companies to get us the financing. They did not check with us regarding this and it has now hit out credit report as... Read more »
Sorry to inform you but "hitting your credit rating twice" is not actionable at law because you cannot prove any damages. At best you can complain about the creditor to the credit reporting agency--who probably has a file on this same window company.
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?
