I am a resident of Iredell County, North Carolina. On

Hi, my name is Mike,JA: What state are you in? It matters because laws vary by location.Customer: I am a resident of Iredell County, North Carolina. On January 13, 2016, I purchased a 1991 Rolls Royce from a south Florida resident. I placed a bid over the Internet on the EBay Motors site and won. I tried to have the car pre-inspected by a roving mechanic but he was leaving for a two week vacation within a few hours. I called the Rolls Royce dealership and it would be almost 3 months before they could inspect it. Just after the bid, I sent the seller $1,000. Deposit via PayPal. Their ad quoted "any inspections are to be completed before the end of the sale, not afterwards. Please, NO EXCEPTIONS. Winning this auction does not entitle you to come inspect the car and decide if you want to buy it, but OBLIGATES you to complete the purchase. Please note that all sales are binding and FINAL. The vehicle is being sold AS-IS, WHERE-IS with no warranty expressed or implied." That was the terms of sale. The description of the car was, "This is a beautiful meticulously maintaining car that has been serviced regularly. The previous owner had a new alternator, new battery's, new power steering, new brakes, wheel alignment, and regular service and maintenance for many years prior. Virtually, everything works great and there are no leaks, so don't worry about its dependability or any oil on your driveway. The engine was completely resealed two years ago. Everything on the car works well even though it's an older car. It has never failed to start and we have had no problems with the car. For it's age, it's in great condition. This is the most iconic car on any road and the respect that you get from other drivers is un matched. It delivers a combination of safety, luxury, performance, status, cost of operation that I was surprised was very reasonable. You can see from the pictures I took from the underside of the car that it has virtually no rust, and the history of the car shows no accidents. It is loaded with a beautifully functioning automatic transmission with a 6.75 liter Rolls-Royce V8 engine with a very efficient fuel injection system which provides ultra-smooth idle and driving and the car has a fantastic air conditioning system that is ice cold all the time, even in the severe Florida heat." (Mike) My decision to bid on this vehicle was solely based on the elaborate description on how well maintained the car was depicted along with the photographs of the exterior and interior. So, until I seen the car on January 13, everything was well. The two owners would not allow me to inspect the car, I was shown only what they wanted me to see. The rest of that day was spent at the bank and Motor Vehicle Department. I was told by Stephen, whom I spent most of the day with that he could not answer any questions about the car because his partner James is the mechanical one and the one who has the receipts that I was to get when I picked up the car later that day. We arrived back at their home at about 4:40pm and Stephen had a client meeting at 5:00pm. When we got back, Stephen left for his meeting telling me that James was not home and that they would send me the receipts, which I never received. I come to find out through earlier conversation with Stephen that he was the Chairman of his own advertising company. (So much for the ad). Ironically, they were playing good cop, bad cop the entire time, one would appear, and one would disappear. When I tried to look at something, I would be called to the other side of the car to show me how something works. Stephen and I parted ways at about 4:40pm and I drove 145.8 miles, or 2 hours and 11 minutes to a hotel for the evening. The following morning I was driving to a mechanic shop called Sam's, as they were highly recommended by several people that I spoke with and they had a certified Rolls Royce Mechanic on staff. I wanted the car checked out before I continued on. From the hotel after breakfast, I drove another 105.1 miles or just less than 2 hours and was exiting exit 168 on tJA: OK. To minimize me, please click the down arrow at the top right corner of this box.Customer: bono, and how would I do that? - could I get a public defender as representation, and, How long do I have to file this case? Please include any suggestions that I have not covered. Sorry for the novel, but ai needed for you to understand. One last thing, do you know of any lawyers in Charlotte or another part of North Carolina that you can recommend. Please be as specific as possible in answering my questions. THANK YOU FOR YOUR TIME AND ASSISTANCE. GOD BLESS!JA: Has anything been filed or reported?Customer: I reported this to EBay, my bank, my bank said to contact the Police, I had a Sheriff come to my house he read the paperwork and read the words as-is, he called his Sargeant and was told not to take the report and Ebay also said to contact the Police and FBI. How strong are the words as-is and no warranty implied in this case?JA: Anything else you want the lawyer to know before I connect you?Customer: Is this an expensive process for me?

Hello. I have experienced several issue with my employer. The latest issue that prompt me to seek an attorney was a written counsel I was given. Assistant: Thanks. Can you give me any more details about your issue? Customer: Basically, my 2nd level supervisor provided instructions on how to handle tenant disputes. A dispute occurred and I handled the dispute as directed. I went to the location when both my 1st and 2nd level supervisors were on the premises to ask if they were pleased with my handling of the situation. Both gave me praise. *Incident occurred October 22nd. * My 2nd level supervisor provided me a written reprimand of the incident, a month later. According to my 1st level supervisor, there is an email addressed to me where he acknowledged that he instructed me to do as what is written in the reprimand However, within a months time. I told one of the tenants that they needed to report him for asking her to obtain medical documentation stating that her previous sexual abuse has any effect on her current state, which he would then consider letting her out of her lease. FYI, she had an incident regarding sexual harrassment with one of the staff members.

My girlfriend, Sage, and I,, are in a 2 yr res. lease. Our

My girlfriend, Sage, and I, Steve, are in a 2 yr res. lease. Our 3rd roommate, L, has become a continuous threat to us, our cat, L's own dog, and our material property. L is verbally abusive, abusive through text, intimidating, physically destructive, and physically abusive to animals. We have witnessed L pick a dog up off the ground by its leash hanging the dog. We now keep the dog in our room for safety. L has also stolen from our bedroom, as well as the remote and Xbox controller from the living room; it is our TV and Xbox we can no longer use. L placed peanut butter covered dog bones in my shoes. L walks by our door at night and forcefully shakes the handle and door. Sage and I have been forced to place locks on our bedroom door, desktop, and various other things to ensure L does not steal, harm, or damage anything else. L drinks heavily every night (wine and vodka), while eating very little then threatens and intimidates us directly and indirectly through loud conversations with her other dog, herself, or people on the phone. L stomps around slamming doors, forcefully imposes religion with verbal abuse, blasts religious music, physically and verbally interferes with business-client interactions, academia progress, etc. Sage and I have tried numerous times to have civil, constructive conversations of respect and understanding to maintain life in the house and the property, but L refuses to listen or work with us. L responds with conditions sage and I must adhere to otherwise L's actions continue. L has openly expressed not caring what she does to us, the house, or sages business. Sage and I have contacted the leasing company expressing fear, stress, and discomfort for ourselves, animals and property. The management company told me not to worry about the legality of the lease when I attempted to bring up the termination process in regards ***** ***** situation. I was told a meeting would be had between L and the management company, but that never happened. Sage and I were told not to worry about it. How can sage and I get out of this lease? We are under serious physical and psychological stress, which is impeding on business, school and overall quality of life. Thank you.JA: Because real estate law varies from place to place, can you tell me what state this is in?Customer: Of course.
