Please answer the question I posted. Thank You
This is the heart of the duress that I am experiencing. This agreement was
not voluntary or willful on my part.
My question I am being forced to sign a contract in order for the Corp to release my money and they want part of the money. Is this legal?
The Corp felt I was using their name Storm Tight Windows Corp. We were
Storm Tight Windows Fort Myers Corp. They wanted 4,200.00 a month
to continue using the name. I owned the rights to the name through
federal trade mark application. They were funding our jobs through a
FHA lending institution to assist us. When we decided not to pay this
amount they held our funding for window installation we did. They are
on the east coast and we are on the west coast of Florida. They also
forced me to withdraw my trade mark application and said they would release the money after taking over $8,200.00 out. We are being held
hostage or go out of business without our money.
They made a contract of 1 page poorly done, not by an Attorney and
demanded me to sign it. They forced me to dissolve the Corp, and with
draw my application for the trademark on the name Storm Tight Windows.
I have complied but they still have much of the money and we have been
severely damaged. I was under the Impression they financed the customers. They don't. It's through Lendmark which is a FHA regulated
financial institution. This in itself may not be legal.
NO it does NOT.
Please one more question. We have acquired extensive damages because of their action. Can we add this to our suit. And can we re apply for the trade mark because of the duress forced upon us?
