  • I have lived in a house I am renting with option to buy, for 4 years , my landlord is rushing me to sign a land contract,

    I need to have land contract paperwork looked over, and be advised on any other options I can use to pay off the house, $37,000.00

    Deano’s Answer

    I would agree with what has been said however most land contracts usually make responsible for all repairs and all property taxes. So if your landlord is rushing you to sign make sure there are no left over repairs that he is responsible for from the rental period that would now become your responsibility. Also make sure things like the taxes and water bill are up to date as you are usually responsible for that as well. Please call if you need attorney representation for this transaction.

  • After I, the landlord, won in court, the tenant vacated but still refuses to pay rent due. How does Interrogatory phase work?

    In court, the judge awarded me the back rent plus damages plus interest from November. Ex-tenant moved out but pays nothing. My next step to obtain redress is the Summons to Answer Interrogatories. How does this work and what questions should I as...

    Deano’s Answer

    What you are asking about appears to be what we call a "Creditor's Exam" in this state. Typically the questions you want to ask are where to they work; where do the bank; what cars do they own and so forth so you can collect the judgment. If they do not show you can request a civil bench warrant but in order to do so you must serve them "personally" with the summons and not by mail.

  • I co-signed for used car and they stopped paying. Can I take them to small claims court?

    I co-signed for a used car. After only 5 months they stopped paying. I had to take posession of the car, pay up on payments and this included late charges. I sold the car at a great loss as this car has little to no resale value. I'm out about...

    Deano’s Answer

    Well it appears you have exercised all the rights you have with the lender which is taking the possession of the car, making the back payments and selling it. Whether you can sue the other signer depends on whether there was ever any agreement between you and that person. If you didn't put the agreement in writing then it becomes your word against theirs and a court may not enforce it. If there was no specific agreement and you simply co-signed out of the goodness of your heart then YES this was a very, very expensive lesson learned.

  • Can I take a furniture store to small claims court for a refund if they keep missing delivery dates they determine?

    I bought a special order bedroom set (price 1010.00) from a furniture store back in June. I ended up not needing the bedroom set by the time I finished paying it off. I then called the store in hopes of canceling the order and they said they furn...

    Deano’s Answer

    Yes. First off however I would send them a notice in writing via certified mail stating everything you are stating here. After that I would contact your Attorney General's office and file a complaint, as well as contacting your local Better Business Bureau. Furthermore, depending on your state most states have a 3 day right of rescission period in purchases such as these especially if you signed the documents in your home or they were sent to your home. If you requested your refund witihn those 3 days then they may also be violating the law.

  • I have furniture from rent a center. I overpaid and am returing my furniture early. They are denying me a refund. what can i do?

    My contract states one month payment is 57.00 they made me pay 156.00 My contract ends as of tomorrow and they cannot get the furniture until the day after. They are denying me my refund of my overpayment. Is there anything I can do to get this mo...

    Deano’s Answer

    I would start by checking your contract and make sure there are not any early cancellation fees. If not, then you file a complaint with your Attorney General's Office over this practice. You can also file with your local Better Busines Bureau. If both of those fail you can sue them in small claims court.

  • I recently purchase table set at Ashley furniture my payments are 83.00 a month. they gave me 90 days to pay the price 620.00

    since my 90 days are up , they put the price back at 620.00 so i ended paying 1400 for this. can they do this. every time i make my payments taxes are involved and more taxes at the end of the contract. what are my legal rights.

    Deano’s Answer

    Without more information I don't understand your question. If you had 90 days and you have been paying $83.00 a month then you would have only of paid $249 not $1400. However if you feel they made misrepresentations about the program you may be able to file a lawsuit against them under your State's Consumer Protection Act with protects consumers false representations, statements or tactics in the sale of products to the public. If successful the act also entitles you to be reimbursed for attorney fees.

  • What does a tenant do when the landlord delay the walk through for one month after tenant moves?

    The landlord was out of the country and did not return to pic up keys or do a walk through and now withholds tenant deposit claiming rent for the month after tenant moved out

    Deano’s Answer

    I am not a Florida attorney but in Michigan if you have given the landlord "written" notice then you are only liable for rent up to the "date" given in the notice. In fact in most States the security deposit cannot be applied to back rent either without a court order allowing them to do so. The security deposit is to be used specifically to cover damage to the property or in some cases unpaid liabilities like utility bills.

    If he still does not release your security deposit you can either contact an attorney to write him a letter or file a small claims court case against him. In some states if you prevail in court you can receive 1 1/2 times your actual security deposit as additional damages.

    Deano’s Answer

    While I am not an immigration attorney my first answer would be that you can "apply" for a tourist visa. Whether it will be granted is obviously unknown until you do. However, after that I think you need to consult with an immigration attorney and explore your appeal options. Have you appealed any of your previous denials? If not you may want to see if the time to appeal has expired.

    In the end this is going to be a long "process" and you should get help to get through it. However in the end if seeing your children is important to you then you should get the process started.

    I would be happy to assist in any other way possible.

    Deano’s Answer

    Michigan has a landlord tenant act that protects tenants from unlawful conduct on the part of a landlord.

    There is also an anti-lockout statute in Michigan which prohibits the landlord from locking you out of the property.
