Q. If a car dealership is to tear down a neighborhood, would the seller be required to disclose before selling?
A: Unfortunately for you, no. Although, sellers will typically provide a "seller's disclosures" they are not legally obligated to do so. If they did provide a "seller's disclosures" and proactively said that they were not aware of any major changes to the neighborhood when if fact they did know about it, then you might have something. As is, it is an arm's length transaction and discovering items such as this is part of the buyer's due diligence. I don't think that this was the answer you were hoping for. Sorry, and best of luck. Wes
Q. How many calls and texts from a company does it go to harassment? This company will call and text up to 4 or more times.
A: I can only assume that you are talking about debt collection. If that is the case, then here is some information, section 806(3) of the Fair debt collection practices act states: 3. Multiple contacts with consumer. A debt collector may not engage in repeated personal contacts with a consumer with such frequency as to harass him. Subsection (5) deals specifically with harassment by multiple phone calls. Subsection 5 states: Section 806(5) prohibits contacting the consumer by telephone "repeatedly or continuously with intent to annoy, abuse, or harass any person at the called number." 1. Multiple phone calls. "Continuously" means making a series of telephone calls, one right after the other. "Repeatedly" means calling with excessive frequency under the circumstances. What that being said, I think that 4 phone/texts a day would be excessive under the circumstances. You have a couple of options here. 1) You can ask them to stop contacting you unless it is to tell you that they are are initiating a law suit. This will stop them immediately, but they will probably send it over to an attorney to start the collection process if the debt is big enough. 2) You can tell them that they are contacting you excessively and remind them that they are running afoul of the Fair Debt collection practices Act and if they will continue to do so you will sue them for harassment and they will be responsible for attorney's fees plus $1,000 or actual damages (if any). 3. You can just sue them w/out warning. ' Again this is all relevant to a debt collection provided that their collection of the debt is under the scope of Act. I hope this helps. Wes
Q. If a contract with a new client requires money to be spent to complete the contract, is that money a business expense?
A: Nearly any legitimate business expense can be discounted against revenues. I think you will need to be more specific on your question. If you are having to spend money to acquire new or specialized equipment or an upgrade of some sorts then absolutely. I hope this helps. Wes
Q. Can I take legal action against a pawn shop that gave me false information?
A: Hi, First off, let me say I am sorry for the situation. This can be extremely frustrating especially if there is sentimental value attached to the item. I am assuming you sold the ring rather than pawned it (you got a loan from them using the ring as collateral). If that is the case, you lost all rights to the ring when you sold it unfortunately. This was an enforceable and legal transaction. You got $100, they got the ring. The Courts will not intervene in this situation. The courts have intervened when someone purchased a valuable baseball card for $100 instead of $10,000 because the seller didn't realize the tag said $10,000, but this isn't one of those cases. You knew what you purchased the ring for, so you didn't walk into the transaction blind. Unfortunately, I don't think you much of a case. Pawn shops make their money by knowing more about the value and resell value of items better than their patrons. In addition,l you can't prove that the ring won't sell for $300 as far as you know the ring hasn't sold for $1,000. Maybe they have priced it too high. Again, I am sorry you are dealing with this, but honestly, I don't think you have a case. I hope this helps. Wes
Q. My uncle is in assisted living at a facility in Florida; I live in Utah. My uncle has a legal guardian.
A: First, you need to determine why it has your name on it. If you are a joint owner of the account then, no it is not the sole property of your uncles. If you are merely a payable on death beneficiary or hold a power of attorney, then it is your Uncle's sole property and the money should be used for your uncle's benefit. I hope this helps.
Q. My mother died 7 years ago my sister has been living in the home now the remaining sisters want to sell how do I remove
A: Who has title the house? Is it still in your mom's name? If so then you will need to file an action in probate called a determination of heirs (probably as the normal time to probate an estate has probably lapsed) in order to get a personal representative appointed who will then have the authority to evict her. If there has already been a probate opened, then the personal representative/executor has the authority to evict her, by the normal means. I hope this helps. Wes
Q. Curious if I am a Beneficiary and receiving home with small Mortgage through a Trust will I be Responsible for
A: I am assuming you understand that secured debts are those debts that are not attached to something that the bank/creditor can repossess and unsecured debts are debts such as credit cards, personal loans, etc. where there is nothing physical that the creditor can reclaim if the debt is in default. Whoever the trustee is will be responsible for paying the debts. If there is enough money left in the estate to satisfy the unsecured debt then the trustee can pay those debts with the other assets and convey title to you as the beneficiary named in the trust. If you are not the trustee, then you legally have no obligation towards the unsecured debts of your grandmother. However, if the estate does not have assets sufficient to pay the unsecured debt, the trustee can and will have to sell the home or take out another loan to satisfy those debts prior to conveying it to you or they could approach you to pay the unsecured debt prior to conveying title the house to you. You as the beneficiary have no legal obligation to do so but, but all legitimate debts must be paid prior to the distribution of the estate. I hope this helps. Wes
Q. I have a Question I am the Beneficiary of a Home with 50k left on Mortgage and it is worth 250 k. Will I be Responsible
A: Well that depends on your position. Are you the named personal representative? Are you a trustee of the the trust that the home is titled in? Perhaps you are on title with your grandmother as joint tenants with a right of survivorship. Or maybe you are named in the will as the beneficiary of the house. These scenarios all create different answers. I am assuming that you understand that the mortgage on the home is "secured debt" and that you are asking about credit card debt or other personal loans (unsecured debt). If you are not an executor/personal representative or successor trustee of your grandmother's estate, then you will have no responsibilities for the unsecured debt of your grandmother. If you do hold one of these positions, then you will be in charge of settling all the debts prior to any distributions. This would include the debt on the house unless you agree as the beneficiary to continue making payments on the home or sell it to satisfy the debt. The PR/Trustee/Executor is in charge of settling the estate. The priority of payout goes like this, 1st costs of the funeral/burial, administration, 2nd legitimate creditors, and 3rd beneficiaries named in the will/trust. I hope this helps. Wes
Q. How many days does a land lord need to evict for none payment utah
A: A landlord can serve a 3 day notice to pay or quit the day after the payment is due. If the tenant pays, they get to stay. If they don't then the landlord can start the eviction process. I hope this helps. Wes
