Hello! My ex-fiancé told me after we broke up that he would bring me my things as I left quite a bit at the apartment we shared. It has been over 4 months now and he has not brought me my things or responded to my texts. I don’t mind having to go get my things but I don’t know if I can legally... Read more »
I suggest contacting the landlord and coordinating a time to obtain your things. You can also reach out to law enforcement as they often act as a peacekeeper to ensure no issues arise while you are retrieving your things.

There are many potential issues here. The co-signer is responsible in the event that the signer cannot pay.

For said car down payment my credit is horrible so we did it in her name. She decided to move to another state on an optional relocation at her job i did not follow. My name is not on the car. Ive got no access to a car now am i able to recoupe any money legally?

I'm technically in Lorain County. My landlord is cool but the realtor is now getting angry with my bf and I cause we were out of town for a showing that he failed to give a 24hr notice for. He's done it multiple times now and we have pets. What drew the line for him is when we refuse to... Read more »

Yes, you can take him to small claims court. You want to allege Conversion of Property.
