You can work on your own car. If it was illegal there wouldn't be AutoZone stores everywhere. But if you are on private property, say in an apartment complex, you may be prohibited from working on your vehicle on that particular property, for example.
This sounds like it could be something to discuss with a Tennessee attorney in confidence - but your post remains open for four weeks. If you need a defense attorney, you could reach out to them here (Find-a-Lawyer tab above), or conduct your independent search for one. Good luck
Random person is splitting up 20 rural acres he owns into (4) 5 acre tracts and selling them. I want to buy one of the 5 acre tracts. He is adding in his contract that I will build a minimum of a 2200 square foot home and I have to use a certain builder. Everyone that lives on that road builds... Read more »
That should be an enforceable contract. Hopefully it will not be a recorded restriction. But enforcing it will be expensive and difficult for the seller. You may want to buy elsewhere, as you are buying a home that you know will probably have problems.
Your question remains open for five weeks - you could consider contacting auctioneers. They might be able to direct you to attorneys familiar with the law in this area. It's a narrow field and might not be something that the average general business law/contract attorney deals with. Good luck...Read more »
She paid $4000 up front and then changed her mind. She called within 24 hours and sent a certified letter (no signed return receipt received). My brother found out later the address given for the company was an empty lot. She did receive a letter from contractors attorney saying the contractor had... Read more »
From the facts, it sounds to me like you may be describing a breach of contract claim that your Mother would have against the contractor here. This link provides information on common Tennessee statutes of limitations...Read more »
I settled over an $800+ bill in court and paid it off. Now the same collection agency on behalf of the same hospital, is saying i owe another $1900+ from previous service dates before the aforemention $800+ bill. Is this even legal? What should i do?
Could be legal. Sounds like you only settled one bill. Without seeing the other bills, it's hard to say whether they can collection for various issues including statutes of limitations. Consult local counsel to best determine your options.
I am not sure as to the question. If they stopped making payments and you want to collect you may have to bring a lawsuit against whichever one or both that bought the vehicle in order to collect. Your rights will either be based upon common law remedies - or upon your contract - if you have a...Read more »
She said this is from check into cash from TN. I didn’t even live in TN in 2013 and has an old address from 2011. She said they a trying to file suit against me. Can they do that if this is not my debt
Yes they can sue you. If served, hire a competent attorney to represent you. Talking to the creditor on the phone after telling them it has nothing to do with you will not help. The creditor should be forced to produce the check, any other writings about the same, and possibly a witness.
A Tennessee attorney could advise best, but your question remains open for two weeks. If you haven't already, just concentrate on working out reasonable terms for getting your car out of there for now. Each day it sits there, it continues accruing storage fees. You could sit down with a...Read more »
I asked her why the increase and she told me that she had families on a waiting list willing to pay more. I explained to her that I did not mind the increase and that she just went up and with everything going on that it just seems shady. She sent me a message back stating she would send my final...

I am not sure the question. If you are wondering if the landlord can 1) raise the rent or 2) terminate and not renew - on a renewal - the answer would be in your lease which should have provisions as to how the lease ends- and perhaps renews. There is also generally "hold over"...Read more »
Someone passed a stolen check of mine and made a purchase of over $1000 at a Tennessee Walmart in late 2001. I was not aware of this until June 2020 when I was trying to purchase a handgun and was rejected by the TBI. The information I was given is that there is a case against me in the county... Read more »
Most importantly, you need to know if it was only a charge, or a conviction. A charge is not a firearm disability although the TBI will not okay your firearm purchase from a FFL. But a conviction, and a felony at that, will be life changing. Hopefully it is only a charge, and a very good...Read more »
dealing with a surety company regarding claim for auto fraud with an auto dealer in my area. the surety company finally responded with a letter stating they will have to have prove via DMV determination or a judgment from a tennessee court proving fraud before they will continue with their...

There is not enough information to really respond to your question. I am not sure why if you are a consumer the reason you would be dealing with a surety company. But there is probably a good reason. You may want to contact a lawyer - rather than putting a lot of details here.
Unless you are her Attorney In Fact or other Fiduciary, no, you have no standing. You might check the Deed to see who is the actual owner, so maybe you have an interest. She needs to file a Detainer Warrant today. Actually it may be too late and require Ejectment. She needs a competent attorney...Read more »
You don't say if your creditor is calling for past due payments on an existing loan or credit card, to collect on a judgment already obtained against you, or if the calls are from a collection agency, or a purchaser of your debt from the original creditor. There may be other options if you...Read more »
Both retailer & Mgfr agree defective. But we took the Law Tag off. We did not receive instructions from retailer as to Warranty nor did we receive a warranty booklet/tag upon delivery. The retailer offered 50% but rescinded after we went to TN Div of Consumer Affairs. We purchased $7,500.00... Read more »
At this point, with your post still remaining open, you could try to arrange a brief consult with a Tennessee attorney familiar with consumer law to advise you whether this would be viable to pursue, and your options under arbitration, small claims, or other venues. Unfortunately, the recent...Read more »

The seller is keeping the plate and I don't have another plate to transfer to it. I know the vehicle needs to be insured before I drive it, but if I drive it home without a plate I'll surely get pulled over, right?
