They marketed it as a completely new event, changed the price, and refuse to offer deposits back. They have offered other options such as transferring it to next year, pay for the new event, or lose your deposit. It seems pretty reasonable that you should get your money back if they cancel an...

This new world comes with new problems. Without knowing about the event, the terms and conditions related to the deposit, or any agreements you have with the event, it is very tough to give you an answer. An example may help. If you bought an airline ticket and your flight was canceled due to...Read more »
I assume the bike has an NC title. If it has been more than 60 days since you purchased the vehicle, they have not delivered the title on time. They were required to disclose to you in writing they did not have the title in their possession when you bought it. If they don't give it to you...Read more »
It was filed in the local District Court on May 15, 2020, the cover letter was dated May 28, 2020 and I received it Jun 1, 2020. I am a single mother basically living paycheck to paycheck. What recourse do I have and what do I need to file as a response? The judgement was filed in Onslow County... Read more »
It sounds like you may have received a Summons and Complaint. The face of the Summons states that you have 30 days to file a response to the Complaint. You can either do that on your own or with an attorney. You can also request a 30 day extension if you need it. If you owe the debt, you might...Read more »
The paperwork has Tenant and CoSigner on the lease, with Tenant's family listed as occupants. When filing for summary ejectment, do I need to include Tenant's wife and CoSigner's wife on the court paperwork?
We were contracted by a new customer to provide a skilled service and materials for a project. The new customer is a multi million dollar company in NC. We are a 4 person small business in NC. We fulfilled our end of the agreement, but the customer now says they can't pay us (they can't... Read more »
You can certainly pursue a claim against the company for balance due. Based on the amount, I would suggest filing a small claims action. It will have to be filed in the county where the company is based and you will have to present for the hearing. Otherwise, it would have to be filed in District...Read more »
My (now) ex and I share the same phone plan. It is under his name and he pays for it. I used to just give him my half every month. Now that we are broken up, I blocked him on everything. I am figuring out getting my own phone plan but there is technically still money that I owe him to date.... Read more »
I hired a GC in August (with a written contract) that had an estimated timeline of 6 weeks to completion. It went well in the beginning, but he began to demand advances, which we naively provided via credit card. He continued to demand advances, threatening to walk if we didn't pay, while... Read more »
He said he can’t stop or he’ll be in contempt. Can the funds be placed into an escrow account pending custody to change order petition? If not, can he sue her afterwards for overpayments?? How does that work? We are in Hendersonville, North Carolina.
Original note was 144 payments of 550 due on the 15th monthly. I'm threatened with foreclosure all the time. He's changed my due date with no new installment agreement. I only have 4 payments left, but his balance reflects a balance of more than 3 times the amount I truly owe. I have 3... Read more »
It sounds like you may have uncovered a despicable collection tactic used by some individuals to steal property from borrowers who are not paying attention along the way. According to your facts, the total amount you agreed to pay (beginning nearly 12 years ago) is $79,200 ($550 times 144); and...Read more »
I have an old debt with a landlord in Ohio from 2014. A judgement was issued in Ohio in2015. I completely forgot about, as I had zero communication with the debtor in the past 3 years. Now they got a bank levy and I have til May 1, 2019 to respond to a notice for a hearing or to claim why I... Read more »
This would be an easy problem to solve if it did not involve two separate states. If the bank levy was filed in the state of North Carolina you should hire a NC lawyer to help you. If the action was filed in Ohio, you need an Ohio lawyer. Do not try to defend against this levy without a lawyer.
Probably not--unless your mom's name is listed on the same debt you owe. This problem can be solved by you giving your mom a quitclaim deed to the property, or by the two of you creating a new deed in your mom's name only. Do NOT try anything without a competent lawyer helping you.
Wasn't enough money to replace mailbox post and have it installed . Contacted citi taxi and they refused to cover expense or to give me name of taxi driver so at this point I don't have his insurance info to make a claim. I have his "hack" # and cab number, but not his name or... Read more »
My friend and her then boyfriend had an agreement. She bought 2 kayaks, and he bought 2 paddles. He is claiming this is a gift and that she cannot take the kayaks back , even though she has the receipts to prove her purchase. Legally, is she right to take the kayaks that she purchased ?
Receipts only prove she purchased the kayaks - not that she currently owns them. He is claiming they are a gift (although why he would claim she gave him both kayaks is sort of dubious). If she can get the kayaks without breaching the peace, she can take them back but he may call law enforcement...Read more »
If the debt is legitimate, then the best option is to speak to the creditor and attempt to get a payment plan to pay the debt. You have 30 days from the date you are served to file a response with the clerk. If you don't, the party will be able to get a default judgment against you. Once the...Read more »
He has been out of work since april 2017. He has paid a few bills here and there when he was getting unemployment. We are not doing good and he refuses to go to work or pay his half. He will not leave. He thinks this Is all funny. I know I can do it on my own bc I am doing it now. Is there... Read more »
You are in one of the worst positions possible - not married and own property together. You likely can't legally make him leave because he ownes the property and you can't use divorce law because you aren't married. Likely your only option if he won't agree to let you buy him...Read more »
Having a very hard time in collecting money owed from someone even after a judgement has been awarded, a writ of execution served and a promise made to sheriff serving the writ. When does it stop costing more money to try to get money owed? What would be the next most beneficial and successful... Read more »
There is no exact answer on the next best step. It really depends on the debtor and what steps might get their attention or result in assets that could be used to satisfy the judgment. There are other types of actions that can be taken to collect a debt. Its best to consult with an attorney as the...Read more »
The defendant has no property of value for me to take so it is my understanding my only other option is to try to get as much out of her bank account to be paid back. Do I need to know her account number to do this?
You don't need to know the account number, but you will need to know the bank that the defendant uses. The process is long and involves filing an execution and bank levy. If you have any questions about the process, please consult an attorney.
The class action if lucky you'll get 500 dollars which is about 1 yr of protection actually defense can't protect now and it won't cover any time or aggravation or IRS protection from scammers but in small claims on and individual case could I ask for maximum pay out for local jurisdiction
