  • What recourse do I have if a contractor does not do the job right?

    I paid a contractor to fix my leaking roof. He also gave me a 10 year warranty, One week later, my roof still leaks and he will not return my calls

    Jesse’s Answer

    I would consult an attorney in your area. If your demands go unmet, I would file a breach of contract/breach of warranty against the contract. You can recover against the contractor's bond. You may want to do this sooner than later so other disgruntled customers do not file for the bond funds first.

    Jesse’s Answer

    You have a long process ahead. Bankruptcies can take years to complete. Whether you get paid and when you get paid depends on many factors including the number of creditors ahead of you, the amounted owed, and the debot's assets/income. There is even a chance that the court may forgive the debt. I'd highly suggest going over the details of your situation with a bankruptcy attorney in your area.

    Jesse’s Answer

    Yes. Of course you can send documents to your overseas partner and they can sign and return the originals to you. If you need a signature notarized or otherwise authenticated, they can also have that done overseas and sent to your office. All founders do not need to be physically present to start a company.

    Jesse’s Answer

    If the house has been foreclosed upon then you will not be able to sell the house. There is likely a new owner on the property. I'd recommend doing a title search and seeing what pops up.

    Jesse’s Answer

    Your rights will largely be determined by the terms of the lease agreement. However, you generally must keep paying rent even if the house is in foreclosure. The rental agreement will likely contain a clause that deals with foreclosure. If the house is not damaged you should get back your refundable security deposit. You should also be able to have the last month's rent applied.
