Thanks for your question. Unfortunately, this is a difficult question to answer without more information. It would help me to know the type of LLC your friend has and what ownership or relationship your friend's LLC or other two companies under it will have with the new business that you want to start.

Speaking very generally (and making a lot of assumptions), if your friend has an LLC that operates several businesses under it, then her LLC is likely classed as a "series LLC."...

Q: I was curious if a timeshare contract can be changed if the original contract was with another company?

Small timeshare resorts are often purchased by larger companies that seek to bring the new owners into compliance with their general policies. They can typically do this so long as the new ownership terms are not seriously different than those accepted when you signed your original document. Of the changes you listed, I think your first (changing how you are charged) may be the biggest issue and may allow you to cancel or find other relief. However, it will be impossible to know without...

If an oil company has violated its agreement with you, it is possible that you can get a court order requiring them to fulfill their obligations under the contract. They may also be liable to you for damages. You will first need to have an oil and gas attorney review the contract and the facts that you believe show the oil company has violated the contract. The oil and gas attorney can then review with you your options to enforce the contract.

The name a tax office has for the owner of property is not controlling as to who "actually" owns the property. An owner of real property is determined in the Deed records where the property is located.

Q: They are trying to make me pay for a month to month for a month because they were closed.

Tammy Lyn Wincott's answer
As I have not read your contract, I cannot answer specifically. Generally a 30 day notice given on October 2nd would mean the person has to be out by midnight November 1st.

As the unit has been vacant, I would expect they would want to release it for an extended period as soon as possible; therefore, I don't understand their argument over the one day (if turned in on October 1st, it would be a 30 day notice).

I wonder if the lease says a "30 day" notice or by the last day of...

It difficult to void a signed document in Texas, but Texas does allow voiding a document in certain cases where the signature was obtained by fraud. In order to determine if fraud is present in your father's case, you and your father will need to consult with an attorney who will review all the facts and circumstances regarding his signing of the settlement document to determine if the situation meets the Texas definition of fraud, and if it does, what procedures might be available to void the...

Classic problem with any rental institution. You are on the hook so it's easiest to keep busting your chops. As they are involved with lyft you may want to look for an attorney who handles employment cases and insurance "bad faith" cases and is a member of the Texas Trial Lawyers Association

This usually involves filing taxes jointly as a married couple, naming one another as spouse on employment and insurance records, holding out as a married couple and intending to be married. If the court finds an informal marriage ("common law marriage" does not...
