Jason Anthony Greller's answer I'm surprised that the buyer's inspector did not note that the dryer was not vented. If the dryer is not vented then it should be a condenser dryer.
The issue here is whether or not you had knowledge of a condition affecting the property and failed to disclose that condition in your condition report. You can argue that this is not a condition that affects the property but the buyer will argue the opposite. The concern here for you is that the property manager seems likely to testify...
Tammy Lyn Wincott's answer It sounds like she may be considered a tenant at this time and you may have to evict her. There are specific steps to follow in eviction and they vary depending upon the circumstances surrounding the eviction. Your local precinct or county should have information on evictions or you may look on the State Bar Website for Landord/Tenant guides.
I’m NY, small claims court has subject matter jurisdiction over amounts in dispute between $0 and $5000; civil court between $5000 and $25,000, and supreme court in New York entertains cases where the amounts sort by plaintiff and our defendant and counterclaims exceeds $25,000.
For a debt of around $3000 search is this one I would recommend hiring an attorney and bringing in action in small...
Timur Akpinar's answer The scenario you describe appears to involve the legal principle of necessity, which could serve as a defense to doing something which is ordinarily deemed to be wrong, but is excused because the exigent circumstances. If this is not a hypothetical question, and is a real-life situation, a consultation with an attorney could provide guidance about how to proceed with the lawsuit. Again, if it is a real-life situation, it would also be advisable to learn if the old couple filed any form of...
Gregory L Abbott's answer It largely depends upon what the written agreement says and, in the end, what the seller/landlord admits or disputes. The only way to know much is to take everything you have in documentation to an attorney for evaluation and review. Sadly, your feeling pressured and/or having no where else to go has no legal relevance at all. If you did not have a gun put to your head and you signed a document anyway, you are likely to be bound by its terms, though there always some exceptions. Good luck.
Mr. Michael O. Stevens' answer Not entirely certain if you are sub leasing to them, or you are sub leasing from them. If you are sub leasing to them, you are the landlord, and you can sent notices of deficiencies or a for cause eviction if they are violating the lease.
If it is the other way around, review the lease and see if your landlord has violated any terms you can use as leverage to get out of the lease.
Lastly, just remember that this is a commercial lease, so the landlord-tenant laws do not apply.
N. Munro Merrick's answer Pay the rent owed. The landlord must keep the items safe and may move them into storage at your expense. After a period of time if you do not repossess them, he make auction them off, deduct his rent, and pay you the balance.
If your vehicle was at fault, then your vehicle's insurance will pay for the driver's mistake. If the person was not authorized to drive that vehicle, the insurance may either a) not pay or b)pay under a "reservation of rights."
Much depends on the "not authorized." If the owner is just saying that to protect their rates that's one thing. If they reported it stolen that's another. "I told him not to use it"(but left...
Mark Oakley's answer Maryland abolished the causes of action known as breach of marriage and alienation of affections, and any similar action, three quarters of a century ago. The engagement ring must be returned if demanded, as that is considered a conditional gift, with the condition being going through with the marriage. If your ex-fiancée incurred costs and expenses paying for things like the wedding venue, engraved invitations, etc., then maybe they would be able to claim 50% contribution toward those...
Brent T. Geers' answer Small claims seems to be the way to go. Although for that amount, you really need to weigh the costs versus potential recovery. If he doesn't show up to court, you might get a default judgment, but then you still need to collect on that, which may not be easy against someone already avoiding you.
Michael David Siegel's answer The key line of your post is your fault for not checking. As to the bank, you have to pay. As to your ex, if you are named in a bankruptcy as a creditor for this debt, it will be a discharged claim, and you cannot sue your ex.
Trent Harris' answer Here is the venue statute for Michigan. http://www.legislature.mi.gov/(S(mrmnjrzw5bkzjtbkhau2r4ik))/mileg.aspx?page=getObject&objectName=mcl-600-1621
It says you can sue the corporation in any county where it has a place of business, does business, or has its registered office. If none of these exists for the corporation, then you would be allowed to file in your local court for your home county. But you have to look for a county where the corporation has a place of business,...
Ronald J. Eisenberg's answer Welcome to the world of collections. Getting the judgment is often the easy part. It’s tough to find employment and banking information. The good news is that your judgment is good for 10 years before it will need to be revived and it will accumulate interest. You could try to find a collection attorney to work on a contingency basis.
William John Light's answer If the bollard needed to be cut to install the water heater, that should be your expense, although the plumber should have given you a written estimate beforehand. If the bollard was cut through accident or negligence, then he should replace it. I think that these pipes are only about $65.00. I doubt that this is worth your time fighting over. Offer to buy the material if he will install it without further charge.
N. Munro Merrick's answer Do you have a written promise of some kind? The statute of limitations may have expired if your loan is only oral. In California, oral contracts have a two-year statute, written ones 4 years. It is not applied automatically. He has to know of the statute and raise it as a defense.
You stated as fact an opinion that is not. You may file a claim any where in the U.S. by mail in any court with the proper jurisdiction. I have experienced N.J. court personnel dealing with an...
