I started working for a program that advertised and was written in my onboarding documents as paying 16 hours per day. They have since asked for the same level of comitment and hourly work but only will allow me to report 13 hours without getting approval beforehand for overtime. I never signed any... View More
My sister and I went on a trip to Oregon. I paid roughly 600 for the lodging and she paid about 240 for the rental vehicle. Not even 24 hours later she left me in Oregon. I was forced to pay for a rental car, stuck in lodging that was paid for 2 people, and lyft fees in order to pick up the vehicle... View More
A Utah attorney could advise best, but your question remains open for a week. I hope you're able to find a friendly solution here. One option might be looking into whether this falls under your local court system's small claims part. Most small claims courts have online resources that...View More
The check engine light came on just a few days after driving it home and the brakes were so bad it was scary to even drive. I'm also paying over $35,000 for a vehicle that isn't worth $11,000 at least not with the shape it's in.
I am sorry to hear that you are having trouble with your car. I am unsure what you are asking when you say "emissions being done". Are you asking whether a dealership has a duty to make sure the emissions are compliant with state law prior to sale? Or are you saying something else?
You are. If the contract had price listed as $2,035, and they charged $2,700, then you are due a refund of the amount. Have you contacted the seller yet? I can't imagine that they would have a problem issuing a refund.
Contact them first and as soon as you can. This...View More
It's a mobile home park, the firehydrants don't work, the water and sewer lines are right next to each other. Others in the park are taking him to court. The city is taking him to court. I'm in a rent to own contract and the manager told me to stop paying my payment and lot rent... View More
Continue to pay rent. In almost all cases, paying rent is crucial to maintaining your right to stay on the property. It's always better to pay rent, while simultaneously pursuing the landlord for failure to provide services noted in the contract.
If it is not outlined in the parenting plan in the Decree or Child Custody Order, the parents must either come to an agreement, go to mediation, or take the matter in front of a judge. I suggest the two of you attempt to resolve the matter. You could suggest that the other party choose which weeks...View More

A Utah attorney could advise best, but your post remains open for two weeks. You present a number of issues to sort out, and it's possible you might benefit from an attorney who has insight into a number of the different areas (such as L-T) you describe. In terms of your immediate needs, a...View More
We dropped off our very small dog to a care-giver supposedly vetted by a larger company (like an air bnb - you find a care-giver in your area with ratings or close by). When we went to pick him up he was extremely lethargic. Care-giver said he was just tired. It didn't make sense. Our dog was... View More
With respect to the criminal side of things, you just need to call the police in the jurisdiction where the abuse took place. They will take the information you have and investigate further, as needed. As to the civil side, this case would probably come down to the value of the claim. Assuming the...View More
I’m trying to prove that the termination of my 12 year lease because i informed the landlord about a mold concern, was illegal because of landlord retaliation laws protecting tenants in Utah. They are now trying to sue us for a large sum of money that is exaggerated and fabricated. They have no... View More
There are many things that might be put in a lease but they can't be pursued in court because they are inappropriate. It would be a waste of time and energy to try to list them all here. You cannot be taught how to defend yourself in a short note like this. Having an attorney review your lease...View More
The unit below me was raided a couple weeks ago and they seized over $1 million in meth. I told the office I was moving because of an unsafe living environment. They told my I had 2 options, both required me to continue to pay. My understanding is that if the landlord doesn't provide an quiet... View More
If you can't afford an attorney, contact utahlegalservices.org. They are good with landlord tenant situations and I think you have a good argument that your apartment is unsafe. When a home is found to have large amounts of meth, they will often destroy the home and dig out the basement and...View More

There is no rule. You can actually rent a property without a lease if both parties agree to do so. This is called a month to month tenancy. Leases are recommended as it gives stability and allows the parties to have a signed document confirming everything agreed upon. If you have no lease, you are...View More
A Utah attorney could answer best, as elements of state public health law and state executive orders could apply. But your question remains open for two weeks. As a general matter, they probably could because of the public safety issue - unless a doctor's note excuses usage on a medically...View More
I am a pro se litigant and I recently filed a Complaint. However, the Clerk designated my case as a contract case, when in fact it’s a personal injury case. I’ve tried calling and talking to the clerk, but she’s firm in her belief and claimed to read my complaint. If she did so, she would see... View More
The designation by the court of the type of case you filed is not critical. It's my understanding that the court does that for administrative purposes. What is critical is that you Complaint correctly pleads your case. If you believe you have a personal injury case, but you've somehow...View More

If your eviction is still pending, a landlord-tenant attorney could advise in the best manner - or given the difficult situation, you may have already decided to start looking into other places at this point. Good luck
