Anthony Marvin Avery's answer I doubt your writing is a Note, but it can be part of the Evidence to sue upon an "Account Stated" in General Sessions Court. You need to file a Civil Warrant, have it served upon him, and then try it. Collection upon a Judgment its the hard part, and I suggest hiring a competent attorney to collect after you get a Judgment. If it is not enough money involved then forget about it.
Anthony Marvin Avery's answer You need to find where the car is most of the time. File an Action to Recover Personal Property in General Sessions Court. Court Costs and a possible Bond will be required. You must also put an exact description of the car with VIN in the Civil Warrant. Hopefully the Lender has not already secured the collateral. The Lender must be dealt with also.
Leonard Robert Grefseng's answer The suit would have to be filed in Tennessee where the defendants live or where the accident occurred. You can't sued them where you live for something they did in Tennessee..
Mr. James Charles Wright's answer The lease terms will control whether either party can terminate early and under what conditions. In the absence of language in the lease, without the agreement of the other party you cannot terminate the lease early.
Mr. James Charles Wright's answer It reallly depends on the reason the otehr person is refusing to pay. You could go to small claims court- General Sessions and represent yourself (unless you are doing business as a Corporation or an LLC- then you can't represent the entity).
Anthony Marvin Avery's answer The Landlord will probably file and serve a Detainer Warrant for you in General Sessions Court. He may just ask for Possession or he may additionally sue you for rent and damages.
Frank J. Steiner's answer General Sessions, (small claims) has a jurisdictional limit of 25,000. If the damages are more than that it would be filed in Circuit. You really need to discuss this with a Lawyer before you proceed.
Leonard Robert Grefseng's answer Based on the facts in your question, unfortunately, NO, there are no easy "escapes." A lease is a contract, and once signed it is supposed to be binding on both parties. Read the lease to see if it allows "early termination ( sometimes you can "buy out" the remainder of the lease term. Lastly, you can always go to the landlord and beg for mercy ( I assume you have a really good reason for needing out- not just that you simple changed your mind). By keeping your deposit, the landlord has...
Anthony Marvin Avery's answer Since there is no completion of the construction, there probably is no Equitable Conversion, nor cause of action for Specific Performance. Apparently you have a lawyer, so he might want to file a Notice Lis Pendens at the Register's Office to tie up the Title. The Real Estate Agents should have nothing to do with it. If the builder is not licensed, you have a problem. And yes, he should be able to sell the improved real property unless you get the Court to enjoin it or discourage it by...
Leonard Robert Grefseng's answer Your question is unclear. If you paid cash for the property at the closing, the deed reflecting you as the new owner should be recorded within hours or at minimum, a few days after the closing ( for example, if you closed on a Friday, the deeds office may not be open again to receive documents until the Monday). It's uncommon in my experience for this to take the time your question suggests- I suspect there is some miscommunication somewhere- either in what they told you or in your question to...
Mr. James Charles Wright's answer It is hard to give a good answer without much detail. But if you have changed your mind about selling your home, just tell the realtor and you should be able to cancel your contract. Note if you then sell your home shortly after you may owe a commission.
