The penalty is 375 dollars because I did not supply them with a copy of my tenants lease agreement and 200 dollars processing annually. I was not aware of this. I do not remember this being a rule when I lived there. It has been 4 years since I started renting the place and I live 3 hours away.... View More
More than likely there will not be a Court case until the HOA sues against the condo to execute the Lien. Those charges will be converted into a Lien against your property, and will be placed of record. Hire an attorney to search the title, read the Master Deed, etc., and advise you of your...View More
They sold the loan agreement to a new business that bought them out and want me to sign an agreement with the new company. If I don’t sign can the new company repossess or does this void my contract because the debt was sold without my approval

A Tennessee attorney could advise best, but your question remains open for two weeks. Filing a lawsuit is generally an option in most insurance claims (a local attorney must advise here after reading your policy - sometimes arbitration is listed as a forum).
I’m military, living in Tennessee but currently serving a tour in Korea. Seller lives in Missouri. Lien is recorded in Illinois. After months of excuses about the bank being slow I received a picture of a title with matching vin showing the seller as the buyer and the lien signed off. So not a... View More
If the contract was made in TN, then jurisdiction arguably lies there. But it sounds like it is a MO contract, and apparently that is where the seller would be served, so MO is alot safer. You did not mention the price involved, which makes a difference. If that photo shows a lien, then contact...View More
In Personam Jurisdiction varies greatly. If there is a contract, it might have a jurisdiction term, or you might be able to sue in the County where it was formed. With a tort, where the injury occurred. Almost always you can sue in the defendant's home place. Depending on the case, you...View More

Better start checking out the financial and asset status of your probable defendants. If insurance is involved, the carrier will have subordination rights. Proving your cause of action for negligence and proximate cause will be difficult, so get opinions of what happened in writing if...View More
The judgment not being in your name makes no sense with you wanting to collect on it. The Judgment Creditor needs to collect his own Judgment. If the latter died, then possibly Probate is in order. In any event you are going to need a competent attorney to get that money.
Generally places that are open to the public fit in this category. Shopping centers, apartment complexes, office parking lots that also allow access to the public. Places that would not fit might be a fenced area with a gate that required a pass card or check in with a guard. The answer to your...View More
There is a road adjoining our property which we always were told was a private road. The man who said he owned this road sold the right of way to us in 2013. We paid $3450 for this ROW and have been paying property taxes on that parcel of land. We have since sold 1.78 acres adjoining said ROW to... View More
Apparently you did not check the title. If not a warranty deed, no cause of action probably exists as a practical matter. With a WD, it will still be iffy. You might ask the Trustee for the taxes back, or even sue for them, but I doubt it will be successful.
It is my understanding that it is not enough for one party to prove he/she did not intend a binding contract but must prove that both parties agreed there was no binding contract between them. Is this correct in TN law?
Both parties must agree to as to the formation of a contract - a unilateral "contract" generally would not be binding. But contracts can be formed by one party requesting an action and the other party performing and the performance is an acceptance- so your question's answer may be fact specific.
Nonavailability of transportation is not a legal defense. Hire an attorney to represent you and go from there upon his advice. At least file an Answer within 30 days of service, and call the Clerk & Master about this Case. If being sued for money, you probably need to examine your...View More
My aunt has weaseled her way into being the trustee because the original trustee not one of the beneficiaries turned it down and named her. My aunt named her husband as her successor trustee and her husband named the original trustee who turned it down.
Who created the Trust? The Settlor appoints his Trustee/ Successors in the Trust. Have you read it? The Trustee may be able to appoint his Successor. Are you a Trust Beneficiary? If not, you lack standing. Otherwise you can file suit in Chancery for an Accounting, Removal For Cause, etc....View More
