Mr. James Charles Wright's answer I'm guessing you left them there- the custormer is claiming that you didn't finish the job- and that if you want the tools you can either finish the work or otherwise resolve things. You could contact the police but I am doubtful the police would get involved. After all the customer didn't go get the tools - you left them. You likely would need to bring a lawsuit to get the tools back - so it may be better (less expensive) to try to resolve matters amicably. If you can't otherwise work -...
Mr. James Charles Wright's answer Commision based worker's are subject to the terms / conditions of their employment agreements. If the contract allows for a chargeback on commissions for unpaid amounts - the employer can do this.
Benton R Patterson III's answer If that is all you want to accomplish, you do not need to convert the partnership to another entity. A partnership can obtain an EIN, allowing the partnership to obtain credit and file taxes under the partnership's EIN, rather than a partner's SSN. You can apply for an EIN on the IRS website.
Anthony Marvin Avery's answer You have not provided enough information, such as whether you have a firearm disability or not. But generally you need to hire a competent attorney to conduct a Preliminary Hearing. The actual owners should be supoenaed to Court, to state ownership, your lack of access, and actual possession. If Indicted, you need to discover fingerprints on weapons, ammunition and accessories. You may need to file a Motion To Suppress Evidence. Hire an attorney now.
Mr. James Charles Wright's answer Yes. A gas station in Tennessee can refuse to allow you to use the restroom-- Unless you have a medically certified condition that by state statute would require the gas station to let you use the restroom.
Don Himmelberg's answer Yes - returning the stolen item does not "cancel out" the original crime of theft. Returning the stolen item can affect what charges you would face. For example, if you stole a car and tried to "Get away with it," you could face felony theft charges (assuming the car was worth more than $500); however, if you stole your neighbor's new Porsche and took it for a spin around the block before returning it, you may 'only' face joyriding charges, which is a misdemeanor
Don Himmelberg's answer If you are facing criminal charges, you should consider calling a criminal defense attorney. Even theft of goods under $500 is a Class A misdemeanor in Tennessee, and can carry up to 11 months and 29 days in jail and a $2500 fine. A defense attorney will be able to advise you of your rights and recommend the best course of action
Mr. James Charles Wright's answer Your contractor will need to pull the permit for the project. You may be able to sell the solar equipment. But you cannot be the contractor unless you are a contractor. I would explain in your agreement with the homeowner that you are selling a solar equuipment and that a licensed contractor will install the equipment. So there is no claim that an unlicensed contractor did the work.
Mr. James Charles Wright's answer If the seller will not return your money, look at your contract. Look to see if there is a remedy provision for what happens if one side breaches the agreement. It may include language on where a lawsuit can be brought and other terms. There may be a provision for attorney's fees if a party breaches.
If there is no restriction, you should probably write a letter demanding the return by a date certain or you will file a suit to reover.
Mr. James Charles Wright's answer It is really difficult to answer with out reviewing the documents. A person is generally presumed to have read what they sign. In fact there is probably language that says you have read and understood. But that doesn't necessarily mean you have to sign new documents.
Mr. James Charles Wright's answer If your dates are accurate, if you wait 2 months you will have met the time requirement. This would be the safest route. There may be some issues as to the enforceability of the terms of your non-compete. But simply putting your business you will be doing in your wife's name is probably not going to help you. You should have someone look at the noncompete.
Mr. James Charles Wright's answer You would sale, sign over, transfer your 50% interest either to either the company or the other 50% owner. If it is a corporation - you transfer your stock. If it is an LLC you transfer your membership interest. A simple agreement is all you would need. It shouldn't cost much at all unless there are some complicated details.
Leonard Robert Grefseng's answer Generally, yes, any agent is free to negotiate the amount of their commission. However, any listing agreement or fee agreement should be in writing signed by both parties. As to advertising, consider checking with the State licensing board for real estate agents for specific requirements.
Mr. James Charles Wright's answer I am intrigued as to how a law firm ended up with a lien on your home and this may impact the response. But beyond this, if the law firm legally dissolved a proper lien right would not just disappear. The rights would pass to someone- potentially even a creditor of the firm.
