I gave a credit card company the run around when it was time for payments due to the fact that I was currently going from job to job and wasn’t in any position to pay. My account was sold to a debt collector. Now I have papers to appear in court.
A decent lawyer should examine the Statute of Limitations, any Defenses, Compromises or at least work out a Slow Pay Order. If nothing else he should inform you of Exemptions. Garnishments will follow the Judgment now and in the future.
Not sure what the collateral is. But you may need to hire a competent attorney to file suit. It has to do with the value of the collateral as to whether it is worth the trouble. The Fair Debt Collection Act might give you some relief, as well as a set of TN Consumer Protection Statutes.
My wife took her car to an auto body shop to fix a paint spot on rear bumper. The car had to be taken back a second time to be fixed properly, but after getting home she found 3 new scratches on front bumper and the interior and exterior was covered in white dust. We don't want to go back to these... Read more »
A Tennessee attorney could answer you best, but your question remains open for four weeks. One of the issues that could materialize if you found yourself in court over this matter is that the judge could ask the shop what their response was. And if they state that they offered to repair the damage,...Read more »

None of that information sounds classified or privileged, and it is likely in your condo association by-laws that they may divulge that kind of information to prospective lenders. You'd need to read the by-laws and all amendments, but even then, it's likely permissible without explicit language...Read more »
development projects that add even more traffic to the same street without any improvements and traffic accidents increase as a result of overly congested streets, could the city be held liable for injuries and damage to vehicles since they knew the street was over capacity but continued to...

You raise an interesting point, and in a textbook-type analysis, your argument would be strong. But in reality, this takes everywhere, and most courts would not be likely to consider such arguments. Most courts would limit their analysis to the immediate parties at hand. Good luck
Signed agreement with roofing company. I had 5 days from insurance approval to explore my options. I told them on day 5 I was not interested. They said since I signed the contingency, I owe them $1000. I was never given a copy of the form, nor informed of that clause. They only stated they got the... Read more »
Contingency about what? Was there ever an actual contract? You might need to read the contract and then act accordingly. But if you really want your money back, you will have to hire an attorney to sue in Sessions, and it may not be worth it. And you may not be entitled to the money's return,...Read more »
That could very well be a breach of contract. You should consult with an attorney to review your contract and the circumstances of the transaction. If the seller did not honor the terms of the contract then you may have to file a lawsuit to obtain your money back.
You need to find out from the Department of Safety what you need to reinstate the license. Then spend the money and time to do it fast. Campbell/Claiborne Judges and DA's should give you a continuance if you honestly try to get a TN DL, Insurance and a Bumper. If there was a wreck, then it will...Read more »

It's possible part of your post was left off; there wasn't a question included here. You could try reposting so that a Tennessee attorney could see your question. As a general note, the homeowner should be given the opportunity to review the terms and sign; at the same time, technicians can...Read more »
Although the lease stipulated that the renter (me) would pay for the electric utilities, at no time during the course of the lease (nor the five or so months following its end when I resided on the premises as a month-to-month (leaseless) tenenat) did the landlord broach the subject of the...

While it's possible to legally analyze this from the standpoint of whether the material was abandoned, what did the contract say about leftover material, etc., it could be more simple and practical to look at it as a matter of common courtesy. Send the contractor an email, and if they reply that...Read more »
I counted votes with reality company board hired. President now had several proxy’s that looked fishy. They verified their own proxy’s.

You may want to consult with an attorney. HOA cases are not easy to win as a plaintiff. This is because the legal standard that applies usually favors whatever action the HOA takes. There are limits to this deference to the HOA though. Outright fraud may be actionable. The facts here that...Read more »
Im liable for the money unless i truly believed the check was good? And i even offered to pay the bank back in installments if theyd draw up the paperwork, but he said no and now it's gonna be a lot more! Help!
I believe I already answered this question when originally posted; and since you still do not understand why you are liable for the money that the bank lost on the bad check you deposited allow me to try again to explain.
1. All bank customers who deposit checks that later bounce are...Read more »
