My goal is to respond to a government-issued RFP to sell land for a new building site by offering the land for sale, gauge the interest of the government entity to see what they are willing to pay, then use that information to buyout the rest of the co-owners so that I can make a profit on the...

I do not understand your stated strategy. However if you are a tenant in common of an one/quarter undivided interest in the real property, you can only convey what you own. Any representation that you can convey a fee to ten acres is fraud. The proposed purchaser would probably find out...View More
My mom passed in October and didn’t leave a will. Me and my two older sisters, of course, inherit her house. The oldest has her own home and doesn’t want any ownership. Me and the middle daughter were living in the home with my mother, and are now. We had agreed to sign a contract pertaining to... View More
I am assuming you are correct that you and your two sisters inherited the house. Based upon this the three sisters have an undivided 1/3 interest in the property. I understand you and a sister live in the house. The third sister owns an interest...View More
Recently I was booted by my school, then told if I didn't sign an agreement to pay their parking fees they would keep the boot on my car. I'd like to challenge that staff member and campus officer to mutual combat via fisticuffs (with the nessicary PPE provided by myself).
No, it is illegal to engage in mutual combat in Tennessee, even if both parties consent to it. Mutual combat is considered a form of assault and is prohibited by law. Engaging in mutual combat can result in criminal charges and other legal consequences. Additionally, attempting to challenge a...View More
Depends on the debt. Are they personally obligated? Is the business just in debt? Or does it have a positive fair market value? Typically, without an operating agreement, when a member quits the LLC pays fair market under TCA 48-249-505. But there are other considerations as well. Consult counsel...View More
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.
A Tennessee attorney could advise best, but your question remains open for three weeks. If it's a contract with the school, it's possible that violating it could result in loss of privileges or some form of discipline by the school. Depending on what's posted, it's even possible...View More
I have an online business that I made with a friend but everything is in my name included the LLC but he is in a good amount of the footage that our online course provides but his name is literally on nothing except for about half of the videos. I do think he should be payed something but how do I... View More
Your post indicates that you are the only member of the LLC and from this I am assuming all of the online content is owned by either you or the LLC. You don't indicate the agreement with this other person - and you likely should discuss this with a lawyer rather than creating another post. -...View More
I ordered and a contract was approved by me for glass. The contract was amended by the company, as per my instructions, and "tempered glass" was added to the final invoice that was not specified. I signed and accepted the amended invoice when I picked up and paid for the glass. I found... View More
I have a noncompete in my urgent care contract. My boss is not fulfilling the hours or my bonus according to my contract so I'm leaving. It is stated as "not over 50% walk in volume" which would apply to emergency rooms too. I'm ER trained with a doctorate in EM. Can this urgent... View More
It appears that the contract will be breached by your working in an ER. Hire an attorney to read the contract and listen to the prospective new jobs. You may get sued in any event and have an attorney ready to go.
Not sure what "paying online" has to do with this. You must pay rent as the Lease requires or modified by both parties. Otherwise you breach the contract and may be the defendant on a detainer warrant.
Money was given before signing an agreement that's when we were told she wanted the title to the car but the title is on mine and someone else name. We aren't behind and now they are recalled immediately to be paid in 10 days
A Tennessee attorney could advise best, but your question remains open for four weeks. Written terms generally prevail over verbal ones. One option could be to try to reach a compromise on the fee - getting an attorney involved could cost more than the amount in dispute here. Good luck
Can they give me a move out or eviction date if I do not fill out a contract with them before 7/31/24? Can they increase my rent before 7/31/24 without me signing any new documents? I'm new to Tennessee and really need help. Thank you.
Cops parked in the road I need to travel down to get home. They demand I tell them if I live there, (multiple houses on this road) I ask did something happen. He demands I show my license. I ask if I have been suspected of a crime, he said my failure to identify is suspicious and jerks my car door... View More
The extended warranty company approved an itemized parts list & labor for a truck repair job. After the repair, the shop sent them an invoice with an itemized parts list & labor exactly as pre-approved (to the cent). The extended warranty company now wants all invoices for the parts as... View More
You might inform seller you are paying only the actual contract amount of 4.9%. Especially in OH it will be difficult to repossess. Tell them if they have a problem you will call Davidson County Sheriff about the Forgery, which a lawyer cannot do.
I ordered replacement windows. The contractor stated he did not note that the exterior measurements were different from the interior measurements. The option is to cut the brick around my windows which I do not want to do. They will not break contract for a refund and will not honor warranty... View More
You should consult a lawyer who practices construction law and is familiar with the licensing requirements and work. From your description, the contractor made a mistake and you should not have to pay for his mistake. You seem to have bargained for something other than what they are offering to do...View More
