Q: 

Service Agreement Dishonored?

A:  "So I asked my alarm company to upgrade my alarm monitoring..." "...to which the Company indicated were possible provided I renew my contract, which had not expired." So far it appears that you requested an upgrade with the understanding that you renew your exisiting contract. If so, and now you don't agree to the renewal then that's your bad. A question at this point. Does your new and improved service agreement/contract provide dates? Did the contract renew starting on the date of the upgrade or does it extend from the original end date? "I was okay with ''at an additional cost to...

Q: 

Is email discussion legally binding?

A:  No signature, no money, no sale. He doesn''t have a leg to stand on. Unless you have a signed contract, you are not legally bound to sell him anything. Emails can be legally binding but in this case it is not. Think about it like this : if you own a piece of land and talk to a neighbor about selling it to them for lets say 1k and then decide to keep it for yourself they cant do nothing about it. If he did not sign any forms (electronically or in hand writing) or give you any payments then there is nothing legally binding in this situation. Under UETA the contract is only binding if a contract of some type was written up. There has to be an electronic signature. If you agreed to give something in...

Q: 

How do I (the seller) cancel a short sale that is already under review? What are the consequences of the cancellation based on the purchase agreement?

A:  Unless I am missing something, you have a contract with a buyer to buy your home. If the bank accepts the short sale, you might have a legal problem. I agree that the best thing would be to talk with the bank and now consider a loan modification. The bank would rather do that than short sale or foreclosure You have some fantasic news. And, you need to address the short sale ASAP. You need to consult with your Realtor. Plus, you really need to consult an attorney who handles residential real estate matters to make sure the Purchase Agreement is is resolved properly & legally. Ask your Realtor for an attorney who handles residential real estate matters. You may want to ask family, friends, co-workers, etc. for a recommend an attorney. Sela, You...

Q: 

My husband and I put an offer in on a short sale home in early June.

A:  It is illegal in the state of Maryland and any other state for that matter to have more than one ratified contract for one single property. There are a lot of Realtors "attempting" to do short sales with no basic knowledge . . . putting their clients at risk A sales purchase offer is ratified when both the seller and the buyer accepts it by signing it. . . essentially the third party approval is just a contingency similar to . . . .just a home inspection contingency I hope this helps This is what makes people so nuts when trying to purchase a short sale! In my area (Tampa, FL) almost everything is a short sale and it seems like every agent works things differently. The "rules" are evolving as we go along, but it''s hard to get everyone...

Q: 

If open adoption agreements were legally binding?

A:  normally open adotions end up that way, where a family adopts the child, and the birth parent is known as a close family friend, or sometimes even an aunt, uncle, or cousin... it''s a way that the birth parent can continue to see the child and how they are doing but not be the childs parent... i think a lot of open adoptions are done because the birth parents can''t afford the child, but still want to be a part of the childs life, and see the child grow so they do an open adoption that way the baby can have a good life, but the birth parent still has some contact with the child When a couple gets divorced, custody is enforced. Often a couple is required to live within a certain radius of one another, say 30 miles. Why can''t open adoptions be enforced? Since natural parents have...

Q: 

Any good advice for PA fathers? Pennsylvania

A:  I just recently ended a two year relationship with my girlfriend, and the road ahead doesn''t look too pretty. Within two hours of when i left or work yesterday a sheriff walked in and handed me a restraining order, which was later explained to be for emotional abuse, and I was not allowed to see or contact my daughter or her mother for something like seventy two hours. Not to mention I was not allowed to go to my own apartment. It has been a rough couple of days, and I have no idea where to start trying to get a handle on the situation. Does anyone know of a good free resource that can explain my options to me, or are the any sudgestions? I think, although she did file for a restraining order off the bat, that when the restraining order ends she will try and come to an agreement with me...

Q: 

Earnest money ? Wyoming

A:  My husband and I signed a contract on a new construction house. We currently own a home and we had a renter to lease our home on a month to month basis until we could sell. Well, our renter has backed out and now we can''t get financing for the new home. The bank sent the letter to the builder notifying him that we couldn''t get financing. We were pre-qualified by the bank after signing the contract, but our mortgage broker told us a pre-qualification letter is not legally binding. The builder refuses to return our $2000 in earnest money and said it is up to us to figure out how to pay for the new house or else he will start charging us 10% interest each day after he receives the certificate of occupancy. We are meeting with a

Q: 

Job Offer Letter Legally binding?

A:  Depends. What is that that YOU are going to be expected to sign if you accept the position?   So can anyone tell me if these types of job offers are legally binding on ME if I accepted the offer but decide to prior to starting the job that I will not work there.  No.  This is an offer letter, not an employment contract.  You are free to accept and back out of the offer anytime you like, just as you can quit the job any time you like after you begin employment.  As you can tell by the content of the letter, the employer is also free to rescind the offer should the company not be awarded the contract, should you not pass the background exam, should you not be able to get the necessary clearances, etc. The...

Q: 

dealer refuses to sell for winning bid amount

A:  If you want to fly to FL to file a lawsuit against this guy, go for it. OTOH, it is possible they can show that this was, in fact, a clerical error and then you will lose. My guess is the auction is legally binding but its going to cost you a bundle to pursue a case for specific performance. Had you had a friend walk in the dealership , drive it out for a test drive then sit down the block while a 3d person  walked certified funds or CASH over to dealership you might have had different bargaining leverage.   You may be stuck posting blogs that said dealership refuses to deliver on cars it auctions ? Technology is beyond me--but I suspect a 16 year old may help you alert the entire world that this dealer is not to be trusted.   Hey if an item...
