What are my Options with a Car I Owe Money on?
Please advise me on the best way to handle the following situation:
I bought a car in Florida not knowing a couple of months later I would be living in Germany for an undefinate amount of time (married a German and employed in Germany). Because I wasn’t sure of how long I would be here (employment reasons) I decided it would not be wise to get rid of the new car right away. It has been a year of me making payments and insurance payments on something that is sitting in my sisters garage. I am ready to eliminate the problem and realize I will be losing a good chunk of money. I realize I can’t sell the car privately because I don’t own it. I just sent the Power of Attorney to my sister to be able to sell my car. What are my options to end this whole ordeal with my car? No one seems to know and I can’t find any answers. I thought possibly of selling it back to the place I purchase it for. They will offer about half of what I owe so I am a bit reluctant. Please help.
My landlord just called and said she want’s to raise my rent next year. I haven’t been looking for another apartment and there is not much time left. She has another person who would like my apartment, but I don’t want to say that I will or will not renew the lease until I’ve had a chance to look for alternatives.
How much time does she have to give me by law? What are the laws concerning lease renewal? Do I, as a current tenant, have first shot at next year’s lease over another prospective renter? Is there a time before which a landlord may not enter into “next year’s” lease agreement unless I specifically state I intend to Not renew?
quit claim deeds
Aproximately 8 years ago my mother in law died leaving a house worth approximately 60,000 equally to her 4 children. One brother lived in the house and the other 3 quit claimed the house to him with understanding that if he moved out of the house and sold it that they would receive 15,000 each. He recently moved to Florida, sold the house, and sent none of the proceeds to his brothers and sister. Can the brothers and sister recover if he does not offer to share? He received consideraly more than 60,000.
Damages to apt.
This is a follow-up to the question I posted earlier this afternoon. My fiance left me and I never signed the lease to the apt. She stuck me with the bills and the landlord is trying to get back-rent from me (could not pay full rent and bills at the time.) I am also being charged for a large amount of damages due to her dog defacating on the carpet and chewing things. Am I responsible for the damages? Again, my planned defense is that since I never signed the lease I should not be held responsible for damages to the place. Any ideas, I saw where they said to use ‘month to month’ tenant as my defense, what would that do for damages? Thanks for the great advice!!!
Tenant Violates Lease Landlord Gives Notice to Quit
I had a tenant rent and move into a room in my apartment in August 2007. Since then the police were called to the apartment twice for noise complaints, he sexually harassed me, heavily damaged the floors with scratches, and refuse to clean or maintain the apartment in a reasonable manner. I gave a notice to quit citing that the tenant was in violation of sec. 11 of the Massachusetts Standard Fixed Term Lease (which was signed by both parties). The tenant moved out within a few days and is demanding return of security deposit, which was handled and deposited in the proper manner and which I will return minus a percentage of the cost of floor repairs and cleaning. I want to know if however I want to know if I can demand reasonable damages for part or the remainder of the lease under section 25 of the lease? The term reads: The Lessee covenants that in the case of any termination of the lease by reason of the default of the Lessee, then at the option of the Lessor:
a) the Lessee will forthwith pay to the Lessor as damages hereunder a sum equal to the amount by which the rent and other payments called for hereunder for the remainder of the term…
Tennents have not signed a lease agreement (they only have verbal agreement to rent a property for 1 year), and want to leave the property for a new one. The landlord wants to have them sign a written agreement to verify the verbal agreement, or vacate the property. How soon can the landlord request the tennant to vacate the property?
Is it possible to file 498a in this following?
Iam 48 years old female. married for 30 years now. My husband was always abusive. He used really filthy words about me and my entire family. Last year he demanded a land which my mother gave me. I refused to give it. Based my in-laws advice he left me. He is living somewhere in the same city. When my brother met him, he asked for Rs.5 lakhs to come and run the family. My brother gave it to him for my well being. But he took that money also and ran away. We waited patiently for around 1 year now but nothing good happened. Since iam 48 yrs old, Is it possible for me to file a criminal case on him through 498a under the fact that he has cruelly deserted me? One more thing…The day he left the house, he kicked me in the lower abdomen and forcefully obtained my signature on a blank check which he later used to withdraw Rs.10 lakhs from my sons account. My son is a NRI and I was the power of attorney holder of my sons bank account. So he made it appear as if I took the money out of my sons bank account. Can I file using sections 498a + 406 + 420? Iam planning to apply for divorce also since I cannot bear this atrocity anymore from my husband and my inlaws. Please advise me thinking me as one of your sisters.
If the daughter is the power of attorney and there is a living competent spouse (step-father). Who of the two takes priority on making any medical decisions?
contingency contract by parent for a minor and minor rights as an adult
When my so was 9 we were involved in an auto accident. the other driver was at fault and was insured. I settled my claim with ins co directly my ex husband hired an attorney for his and asked that he be allowed to do likewise for my son. My son is now 20 years old and the attorney has finally received an acceptable settlement offer. However the paperwork he has sent my son claims a settlement of $10.000 and includes with it a power of attorney form and a release form which states that the attorney is to receive $4,900.00. The agreement we had was 33 1/3%. He states he will not file this case with the court and that my sons Statute of limitations runs out on 4/19/2004. What can my son do ? Is he bound by the contract We signed? the attorney has been asked for a copy of the contract but has declined to produce it. I feel he is taking advantage of my sons inexperience and placing unfair pressure on him to settle this in this way. What are my sons rights and responsibilities? What can he do?
I have sold my mobile home, but in order for the buyer to move it, he will have to pull it across my neighbors’ land. My question is, if he does damage to their property, whose responsibility is it? Mine as the landowner or the new owner of the trailer? My property is only accessible by an easement on one neighbors land, but the mover will have to venture out in one of the neighbors hay fields and they both are already upset about the potential damage. Thank you! Jan
