Title is legal ownership of a piece of real estate. Unless he was placed on title in error, or through fraud, your boyfriend currently owns a portion of the real estate. The only way to remove him in that case would be to get his signature on a deed releasing his interest to you, or if he refuses,... Read more »

If you want to sue someone on your own, you can go to your local justice court. This is called a "Small Claims" court. The court will have a maximum amount of damages you can sue for. You might sue for the money back you already paid if they improperly repossessed your car. Or you might... Read more »

Once the police choose to back out of the situation, your only option is to sue the landlord.

No, this is illegal. He has breached his contract. The contract was made when he purchased the product. If you want recovery, you can sue in small claims for the price of the product and service fees. It may not be worth your time, but you have a cause of action.

Lawyers are very intelligent and highly trained professionals--but we are not soothsayers; nor do we do crystal balls. Therefore, I am constrained by a fundamental law of the universe (no one can tell the future) and unable to opine on your current dilemma. The only way you can bee 100% sure if you... Read more »
I am now trying to buy a house but they say I'm in a contact for 8 more months. I've lived here 1.5 years after the initial contact was complete. Is this legal? Is this something I can fight in court or is it something I more than likely will lose. They want 3 months rent for fees.
answered on Jan 10, 2019
Contracts with auto-renewals are valid. It cuts both ways, if you didn't want to move they couldn't terminate the contract for another year.
More common than the auto renewal contract is the one that goes a month to month after the expiration of the initial term.

I am sorry, but there is not much you can do legally. Offensive speech is free speech. There are such claims as "intentional infliction of emotional distress" and "negligent infliction of emotional distress" but his conduct would not rise to that level.

We bought a 6 month old puppy through KSL classifieds two months ago. We took her in to be spayed two weeks later and learned that she had a severe bladder infection along with blatter stones and crystals. The cost of diagnosis and treatment exceeded the cost of the puppy. On top of that, we... Read more »

I am sorry for your situation. Utah is a buyer beware state. There are some enhanced duties if the seller is a "merchant" meaning that they do this for their profession, but unless he actively hid it from you or represented that the puppy definitely did not have eptopic... Read more »
I bought a dog 2 months ago and now the lady that sold me the dog is saying that she wants him back and is saying legally the dog is still hers. I paid $500.00 for the dog and I have a bank statement saying I sent her the money. Can she’s call the cops and come after me?
answered on Mar 15, 2018
Animals are property. And I guess technically would fall under the "statute of frauds" that states that goods sold over $500 need a written contract in order to be enforceable. Was there a contract or some type of writing generated for the sale of the dog? Or was it a cash deal of... Read more »

I paid $1000 for a diamond wedding ring from Zales. We were in a desperate situation and needed cash fast. We looked into Pawning the ring but they said it was only worth $100 and that they could only sell it for $300 at most. They told us we were lied to about the value from where it was... Read more »

First off, let me say I am sorry for the situation. This can be extremely frustrating especially if there is sentimental value attached to the item.
I am assuming you sold the ring rather than pawned it (you got a loan from them using the ring as collateral). If that is the... Read more »

answered on Apr 27, 2017
Yes. Even if you file bankruptcy after your license has been suspended, you can have it reinstated immediately upon filing bankruptcy and taking written verification to the appropriate office. In my experience, the Utah Driver License Division is very familiar with the fact that the federal... Read more »
