Its a contract related matter and the Prince George's county entered an Affidavit Judgement. I am trying to file a motion to vacate, so is there a form that needs to be filled along with the reason for not being present before the court or just a letter addressed to the clerk/court will...

You would use a general motion form. You should include any information as to why you did not show up in court, as well as any defense that you might have raised in the contract claim (i.e you didn't owe the money, you paid it already, etc.)
It looks like the landlord is keeping the previous tenant’s security deposit as your security deposit in lieu of refunding the previous tenant’s and you depositing a new one. So you have been unjustly enriched unless you repay the previous tenant.
Whether you owe her in a "moral" sense, versus a "legal" sense in that the funds were a provable, enforceable loan obligation, depends on a review of the situation by an experienced New York contract litigation attorney. Feel free to contact an attorney of your choice to...Read more »
If you pay the money but don't feel it was just, you may commence a case in Small Claims Court to recover the money you believe was collected wrongly. However, if you owe money for rent arrears, the landlord may counterclaim against you.

I know of nothing in the rule addressing this specifically, but the references to complaint, clerk, district court, etc. lead me to believe Rule 8.1 does not apply to small claims. Also, small claims rule 2(b) contains its own verification of debt requirements for assigned debt.

You might want to hire an attorney in the County where your Mother died to conduct a title search and examine the Court filings. He can then advise what you may want to do, or that you are already an heir at law.
You should notify the police or sheriff about this because it can be a crime to alter serial numbers when it was done to misrepresent the identity of the item.

In writing, tell him he has 30 days to remove the items from your garage and that if he does not remove them by that date, you will dispose of his remaining belongings, and then wait another 30 days before you remove them.
I had an oral agreement with a customer to plant 10 trees in her yard and provide five special cares (once a month) after the 6 months planting for $20,000 so the whole process is 1 year and 1 month. I bought the tree at $600 each and materials for one treatment at $300. After 3 treatments (9... Read more »
You should speak to a lawyer because ALL details and fine points matter for a correct analysis. Generally, an oral agreement in many instances can also be valid (although never advisable). Not having a written agreement is going to be challenging to proof in court, unless you, e.g., have direct...Read more »

No. The more legal question becomes whether this was a gift or transfer made under a contract. In either case, you are out that money. When you give someone a gift, you lose control once the transfer is made; if a contract, the money is theirs once you offered $3,000, they accepted it, and gave you...Read more »
