    Warren’s Answer

    Doesn't sound too difficult. You want to set up an LLC or other business entity, and really look at what you are doing, both from a legal standpoint and your CPA to ensure you stay clean on tax issues.

    Raffles are heavily regulated. See the link I've added.

    This is probably not the wise thing to do. You can sell your business based on the buyer paying you from the business operation over time, but it has to be done right. You need to visit with a local attorney to help you with this.

    Warren’s Answer

    You need to read between the lines of the answers - your question indicates that you are about to take an adventure in business for which you are not really prepared. You need to visit with one of us and really get help. What you are talking about is not trivial and you can't fake it.

    You could sue him in small claims and force him to comply with the agreement or give you back the truck (if it's worth less than $10k). Hire a local starving attorney and get attorney fees on it.

    • Selected as best answer

    Unless you have a contract, you have no claim, based on what you've said. I would try to touch base with them and confirm.

    I believe that the form above requires participation of both parties.

    Is there some aspect of the issue that you are trying to avoid? Who's paying the registration?

  • I never gave my tenant a lease Am I not protecting myself by not having one. Please explain how.

    I live in Glendale CA She's rented for a year and took over the property from her friend our previous tenant

    Warren’s Answer

    When you don't have a contract, you don't have anything that governs the rights of the parties. Who's to say that you haven't told them that they can pay late if they get into trouble? They say one thing, and you say another, but there is no document. You need a lease.

  • Can a cell phone company keep a lock on my phone due to bankruptcy

    I claimed bankruptcy on my cell phone company and they have a lock on it. I need to know if they can keep it locked or do they have to remove the lock so that I can get a cheaper carrier?

    Warren’s Answer

    Did you include a discussion of the cellphone contract in your schedules? You should have, and also included a statement that says you are continuing with the contract, or rejecting that contract.

    You should have an attorney that tells you these things.
