Hello, I am a graduate student and I requested letters of recommendation for doctoral studies from both my graduate and undergraduate faculty from two different schools and they both turned the letters in late even though we had communicated via email prior. Once I saw that the letters were late... Read more »
A Virginia attorney could advise best, but your question remains open for two weeks. I'm sorry this happened to you. Unfortunately, one of the issues that would confront a law firm that contemplated such a case would be the determination of damages, absence of contract issues and uncertainties...Read more »
Hi! I am having an issue with a vehicle dealership in VA not sending the NCDMV a corrected title. The original title sent at purchase omitted the VIN number. NCDMV sent them a letter in March 2021 requesting a corrected one and they still have not. I have called and emailed them with no response. I... Read more »
You need to consult a qualified consumer law attorney in Virginia about this. If the vehicle were purchased in North Carolina it would be subject to NC DMV fraud and licensing bureau for car dealers. I suggest filing a complaint with the Virginia equivalent of North Carolina DMV theft or car dealer...Read more »
If the vehicle was represented to you as "new" and it was not new, then you have a claim. If you have a warranty, the warranty should cover these repairs regardless. If you decide to hire an attorney, I'm sure anyone who responds would be happy to help. Good luck.
I discovered days after purchasing my car that the dealership slipped a service contract and gap insurance into my loan contract. I then called/emailed the dealership multiple times asking for a cancellation but they refused, insisting that my car loan was tied to those products (contract says... Read more »
I was a truck driver. I went into the 7 eleven due to a stomach ache for some Tylenol. I didn't see it so I decided to use the bathroom instead. There was an item in front of the door but no do not use sign or out of order sign. Like 5 minutes after I sat down a big loud man Congress banging... Read more »
A lot depends on what the person did, was it on video, etc. Certainly, there is no excuse for chasing someone out of a stall. However in most states emotional distress cases are difficult. You should consult with a member of the Virginia Trial Lawyers Association for the county where it happened....Read more »
Its almost impossible to answer this question in a vacuum. There are too many variables. You say your "LAST" theft charge. You didn't say your "only other" theft charge. If this is your third or more theft charge, there is a higher probaility of at least SOME jail time....Read more »
You obviously have a breach of contract case. You should file a Complaint in the Court where the property is located and seek an award for damages of the failure to make the repairs in accordance with the contract.
I bought a dark grey sofa and immediately had issues. The color wasn't as advertised and the required cover to velcroes on didn’t fit. I couldn’t get anyone on the phone bc they had tech issues. I reached them via Twitter and they send me a replacement cover. This one was even smaller.... Read more »
I was sold a cilajet warranty with my car. I called to make a claim and the company says it was never submitted by the dealer. The dealership had no contracts with the company that they sold me the warranty for. Im paying on the warranty for nothing. I have the original contract. The manager... Read more »
You should sue the dealership for the cost of the warranty you "bought" and the cost of the repairs you're going to make that would have been covered under the warranty. You certainly have a breach of contract claim and possibly a fraud claim. If you decide to hire a lawyer, I'm...Read more »
I bought a truck under the agreement that I would be provided a clean title. The guy gave me a complete different title then what was promised. I then found out he never registered the truck in his name therefore he would be title jumping with isn’t allowed. I believe what he did was fraud or... Read more »
So the check with the bank name that is now closed under my father and my name. it does state "F/B/O fathers name IRA and acct#****. but the bank won't even accept the check and create an estate account. This is the second check that was issued from them and they cant get it right.
I don't know whether there is enough money involved to make it worthwhile, but I think a simple one-hour consult would straighten things out. It sounds to me like the brokerage hasn't explained that the funds are not part of the probate estate, so they don't belong in an estate...Read more »
This is not legal advice. From my jurisdictions (California and Arizona), I don't normally see a fee demand with a cease and desist, although I do not believe there is anything improper about requesting a pursuit fee in the right case. See you at the top! Attorney Steve®
You could sue them for a violation of the VA Consumer Protection Act, but you'd need to have someone testify that the watch is a fake. You'd be able to recover the amount you paid, reasonable attorney's fees, and possibly treble damages if you can prove that the store knew the watch...Read more »
It depends on whether there were any subsequent affirmations and/or payments on the loan and when the loan was supposed to be paid back. I'm sure anyone who responds would be happy to help if you decide to hire a lawyer. Good luck.
I took an online loan from Advance Financial 24/7 10/2019 for $1250. From October to March 2020 I paid them about $325 a month. In March I enrolled with Encompass Recovery Group, a debt settlement group for payday loans. They settled (late August, early September) with Advance Financial for... Read more »
The owner would not prorate my rent and said it's mine until 10/31. So I said that's fine then I won't return the keys until 10/31, but the owner also wants to paint the unit before 10/31. I know I have to allow the access for showings and maintenance, but do I have to allow painters... Read more »
The answer to your question should be expressed in your lease. Generally in Virginia, a residential lease permits the landlord to have workers, such as painters, access the premises on 24 hour notice to the tenant and for reasonable reasons. It seems that painting the premises would be considered a...Read more »
I prepaid for biweekly lawn care 3 weeks ago. He came out the same day and mowed 1/3 of my yard, then claimed his belt broke and he would return the next day. He has never come back, providing a multitude of excuses. I have asked for my money back several times, to which he always says he will be... Read more »
In Virginia, the Office of the Commonwealth Attorney generally files charges in criminal matters, not individuals. With regard to your reported facts, you may have a right to file a civil lawsuit for breach of contract, called a Warrant in Debt, in the General District Court for the county/city in...Read more »
I owe a debt for some dental expenses. I never received the final notice that the debt was going to collections. So I was under the impression that my insurance was working this issue, per a conversation I had.
The letter caught me by surprise, because the debt stated was 50% more then the... Read more »
Did your written agreement with the dentist say anything about attorneys fees? If not, then they may not be able to collect them. Did it say "reasonable" attorneys fees. What's reasonable if so far all that's been done is to write a letter.
That depends on what they did. Violating the POA Act is unlikely to result in criminal liability on its own. You would want to read the Act in conjunction with the HOA's governing documents to determine what the board did and how to proceed. I recommend getting an attorney to help you...Read more »
