Conciliation Questions

Conciliation is a process where two sides of a situation that involves a dispute agree to settle the problem with the services of a conciliator, who then meets with the two sides separately in an attempt to resolve their differences.

What format do I use to file for a summary judgment with DACO (Consumer Protection) in Puerto Rico regarding failure to follow procedures of Condominium Law and respond in writing with the requested documents?

Actually, there is no one particular standardized form that pertains to this particular circumstance out of the currently available documents: Transacciones Gubernamentales. The Departamento de Asuntos del Consumidor would have to be contacted. The goal of this agency is in helping to resolve consumer disputes; generally a simple written outline of the grievances will be fine in order to start the investigatory process.

In February 2011 I took a property management company to small claims court and won. They countered and they won. Both parties agreed payment. This small claim that the property management filed against me has appeared on my credit report which is dragging down my score! It does say that it's paid which is a small conciliation! My question is how can I get this removed from my credit report?

The person can have it marked as settled and paid. It cannot be deleted unless that person can get the company to remove it. After something is settled, it is supposed to be updated. As times goes on; it can be removed through a 7 year span. The company can remove it due to an error.

I live in Minnesota, I had lost my credit card, there were charges on the credit card that I did not make or authorize. I took the credit card company to "conciliation Court" and the defendant did not show. The judge sent me a dismissal, due to the fact of jurisdiction. How does the plaintiff take a foreign company to a "conciliation court". I don't know what other court in MN to take the credit card company to court; the credit card company still has not credited my credit card.

The thing is conciliation court does not have jurisdiction to handle claims against companies that are not located in the state. Conciliation court has very limited jurisdiction and they are not allowed to take actions on such cases as these.

Is a debt collector the same as a collection agency? Will a judge accept that? Do I have to provide some form of legal definition citation or something

Yes, a debt collector and a collection agency are one in the same. No form of legal citation is needed nor is trial.

I am a member of a non-profit flying club. The bi-laws state that the club must buy back my share of ownership on my written request. The club is low on funds, and the board has decided they will buy back my share when they have the available funds instead of following the club bi-laws. How would you suggest I proceed?

If a person receives a judgment against a corporation, that person will be entitled to various legal avenues to collect. A person is allowed to settle any collection of tax debts against any assets owned by the corporation; that includes bank accounts or airplanes. If a person places a lien on an aircraft, the lien will need to be paid before clear title may transferred. If that individual does not want to wait, then they can have the aircraft auctioned to raise money to pay the judgment. This can happen only if there is nothing else in the by-laws, regarding member rights, which would affect any of this.

Having the right information about conciliation can help individuals deal with difficult situations and make the right decisions. Ask Experts about conciliation and other related topics.

  • Are tow trucks contracted to repossess a vehicle allowed to

    Are tow trucks contracted to repossess a vehicle allowed to move a car in the way? My roommate is 60 days overdue and we share a parking spot where I park behind them. There are cars on either side and without moving my vehicle, it would be impossible for them to take their car without damaging it, or picking mine up and doing the same.
    Is that allowed? I'm afraid my car is going to get banged up....
  • Hi! I had an agreement with a merchant that was supposed to

    Hi!
    I had an agreement with a merchant that was supposed to provided certain services outlined in the agreemt. I paid the fee upfront by this agreement. The agreement stated that the amount is refundable within first 3 days. But the services take more time to do so there is no reason to cancel the services at this stage. Also, the merchant included a statement that I cannot chargeback them. However hey breached the agreement by not providing the outlined services and/or doing some of them not as they were described to me. So I exercised my right of chargeback based in the reasons: not provided services and what was provided was not provided as was promised. I paid with Discover card and decided to dispute the charge. I just received am unanimous email from them informing me that they are sent these charges to collection and they I will be reported to credit and it will stay there till I pay or revoke the chargeback. What are my rights? Are they acting legally? Do they have right to prohibit me from chargebacking if they did not provide services? Thank you very much!
  • I just purchased a volkswagen beetle turbo convertible 2005

    I just purchased a volkswagen beetle turbo convertible 2005 on 12/15/14. I paid the dealer cash( like a fool) $5000. I tried calling my mechanic for his advise prior to purchase but he was I'll, so I went ahead and did the deal. After seeing my mechanic today he said that's the worst vehicle I could have bought. Although I paid cash, I have not taken possession of the vehicle until this Saturday, 12/20/14. The car was purchased in NH. The dealer said he needed to fix a door panel and clean it for me. I have not received the title either. I do however have a sales agreement in hand. Can I get my money back?
