Answered Jan 10, 2023

Courts will protect you from an illegal deal, but they will not protect you from an unwise deal. On its face, this is enforceable. However, I know Texas has some very strong consumer protection laws and a Texas attorney may be able to help you with that. You will need to speak directly to a Texas attorney. I'm in a neighboring state and not licensed there.

Lien

Georgia

Asked on Aug 27, 2021

Need a free consultation.

We are selling our house in 1 week and a GC put a fraudulent lien on our home well past the 90 days. Thank you

Donya G.

Answered Oct 5, 2021

Why is the lien fraudulent? Here are some options: How to remove a property lien You'll need to file a lien release form in order to sell or transfer your property. A lien release form can remove a property lien, or a claim a creditor has against your property for a debt you owe. Property lien removal process A lien against your property will prevent you from selling it until that debt is paid. Here are the steps to take to remove the claim of the lien holder against your property. Make sure the debt the lien represents is valid. If you don't believe you owe the debt to which the lien is attached, you may want to consult with an attorney. Pay off the debt. If the debt is valid, pay the creditor in full. If you work with an attorney, you may be able to negotiate a lower payoff amount. Fill out a release-of-lien form. You can often find lien release paperwork online. If not, try the county clerk's office or an attorney, if you have one. Make sure the form includes your name, the lien holder's name, proof and amount of the debt paid, and a description and address for the property. Have the lien holder sign the release-of-lien form in front of a notary. The lien holder needs to sign the document in the presence of a notary public. File the lien release form. You'll usually file the lien release at the county recorder's office, at which point it becomes public record. You may have to pay a small fee to file. Ask for a lien waiver, if appropriate. A lien waiver is a document from a contractor showing that you have paid for the work in full and waiving all future lien rights of the contractor in the work or equipment. Keep a copy. You'll want to have a copy of the release form for your records. Other ways to avoid or remove a lien Court order. If you believe the lien exists due to bad faith, coercion, or fraud, you may be able to obtain a court order lifting it. The lien is a result of a money judgment issued by the court. I encourage you to engage an attorney with knowledge and expertise to assist you with this matter. All the best, Donya

Florida

Asked on Feb 16, 2022

Michael K.

Answered Mar 4, 2022

Hello Jake, I'm a transactional and corporate lawyer working in-house counsel for a company with 13 entitles and thus, I have to constantly draft, review, amend and negotiate commercial transactions and contracts on a weekly basis. As a result of this work, I have a great understanding of what clauses are needed within a contract to protect an entity/person and what clauses are needed to ensure the contract is covering all probable scenarios that may arise of the contract, such as, lack of payment or breach of contract. Maybe I can assist you with your purchase agreement. Feel free to text or call me at (305) 510-2722 or email mjosephkelly@gmail.com Best regards, -Michael J. Kelly, Esq.

Construction Contract

North Dakota

Asked on Sep 3, 2021

Does this constitute a breach of contract on the part of the home improvement company?

I'm waiting for a roofing project to get started which is holding up my other home improvement projects. I received an email from the company stating: "This is to confirm that we have your roof install set for 8/25-8/26." After sending several emails to the scheduling manager without response, I called the local project manager on Wed, Sept 1 to check the status. He has no idea when it will get done. I was unaware that they are subcontracting the project so they can't find a crew to do the job. He said he would get back to me but I haven't heard anything since. Contract states in part: "Customer shall be responsible for the cost to Company of any custom ordered products or materials, a 10% restocking fee on any non-custom products or materials, installation costs, if any, incurred by Company, and liquidated damages of 30% of the contract price as and for Company's lost profits. Such costs and damages may be withheld from Customer deposits." I have paid them half of the bid, $7200. Are they in breach of contract? Can I cancel this contract without being responsible for costs and damages and receive a full refund?

Donya G.

Answered Sep 24, 2021

Post the job you need to get accomplished – for example “ I am looking for an attorney to review a contract to determine whether the party is in breach -------------“ 2. Once posted, attorneys on the website that are interested and qualified will respond to your posting 3. Choose an attorney/s based upon their qualifications and cover letter to have a quick call so that you can decide who you would like to hire. 4.

Remember to discuss the cost of the project as well as how long it will take to be completed as well as when payments will be made. 5. Once you have decided who to hire, click “HIRE” and that attorney will now be hired by you. Donya Gordon, Esq.

I never knew how difficult it was to obtain representation or a lawyer, and ContractsCounsel was EXACTLY the type of service I was hoping for when I was in a pinch. Working with their service was efficient, effective and made me feel in control. Thank you so much and should I ever need attorney services down the road, I'll certainly be a repeat customer.
