I recently talked to the bank concerning my monthly payment.

I recently talked to the bank concerning my monthly payment. I was told I could not make any further arrangements. They then stated that the call was being recorded. I stated that I would make a payment before their offices closed at 9 PM. I later called back well before 9 PM and made a payment via credit card. I was then told that the repossession paperwork had been pulled as I had made the total payment due. In less than 20 minutes after I made a payment they came and towed my vehicle out of my driveway. Can I sue the bank and the repossession company in Ohio?

I am having a dispute with my Neighbor, he just purchased

I am having a dispute with my Neighbor, he just purchased the house next to mine after renting it for a few years. He had the property surveyed, and it turned out the property line in roughly 5-10 feet at most further over to our adjourning property. There is two problems, 1) we were just notified the lots were re zoned years ago, but we were never notified, and have been taking care of area since 1993. The previous owner had a small bush and a little garden fence at the site it was surveyed in 1963 and 1993. 2) since the new stakes were put in, he has parked a trailer and 2 cars inches from the line. I have researched and our local zoning codes states vehicles must be at least, and advisable more from line, since it on grass. Also if there is more than*****parking available, athere most be a barrier. I believe he is doing this to try to take advantage of my mother, since my father passed away a few months ago. we went to the police, and said they couldn't do anything, tried talking to zoning official, nut he has not got back to us. My question is what should my next move? I wrote a cease and desist letter, but my mother is worried about sending it to my neighbor. I ask you kindly, please advise me if I should go to the local magistrate or our county court house? My biggest concern is his immature action of parking on the grass and his driveway is clear, and a little turn around lot in the rear is clear. Thank You,Michael

Major, major problem. I have a very small business. We need electricity. There is only ONE electric (rural coop) that supplies power. We have NO other choice. They have been over billing us for at about 6 months. We are set up on automatic payments. But upon seeing the bills we have been billed late charges, then we were grossly over billed (2-4 times our normal). I wrote letters, called. I had a lawyer wright a letter. The company insists they are right! WHAT? Late charges when they have my credit card on file? GROSS over charging on top of that! I filed a complaint with the BBB. Nothing happened.When they REFUSED to explain the HUGE overages I but a block on my credit card. That won't really help though. They will simply cut off power when they cannot charge my card. HELP! If I have to file a suit it will simply take too long and I will be broke! What else can I do!

The deed to our lot is not filed with the county as being

The deed to our lot is not filed with the county as being part of the current property owners association. The POA insists that we sign forms to have our deed filed with the county. We abide by all rules of the neighborhood and pay the annual dues on time each year. I cannot get them to explain to me why they need this done so badly. I think it is because they want to be able to place a lien on our property if for some reason we suddenly paint our house purple or stop paying the dues. They said that they own the roads in the neighborhood and if we don't sign this document then they don't have to pave our road. (We live on a dead end and I guess they could stop paving at our driveway?) I am concerned at the aggressive behavior of this POA. What benefit do I receive from signing this form ?

I have a question regarding an easement. The people that

I have a question regarding an easement. The people that wrote the easement are dead but the easement came with the property purchase. There was a stipulation in the easement agreement that the property owners would continue this easement agreement with the new property owners but that never happened and I have continued to access this driveway to my home for 42 years. Now, the new property owner behind the person who made the easement claims the driveway is on her property and is going to close it off. Do I have protection under public domain law?JA: OK.

I live in Claremont Ca. An ingress and egress easement to my

I live in Claremont Ca. An ingress and egress easement to my property and to the lot to the east of me was created by three neighboring lot owners and my lot owner in 1985. The easement was never used or built until I bought my lot and built the unpaved road in 2000. The three neighboring creators of the easement (not my lot owner) signed a required City maintenance agreement that excluded themselves from all maintenance costs or repairs and allocated the costs to the remaining 5 lot owners. The home owners to the south of my lot were one of the original creators of the easement and excluded themselves from the costs of maintenance. I own the property of the easement created that provides access to the property to the east of me. It is their only access.A new owner of the property to the south of me insists that he has rights to use the easement adjacent his but my property the same as the property owners to the east of me. His property was developed in 1955 and has always used a different road and a different easement for ingress and egress that does not require any access to the easement created in 1985. Does he have a right to use the easement that would put his driveway in my front yard private drive?

Just bought a car from Rothrock dealership in PA a few weeks

Just bought a car from Rothrock dealership in PA a few weeks ago. I bought the car as is and they told me everything that was wrong with and one of those issues was the turbo was going to need to be replaced. So I bought the car and it broke down hardly even 10 miles of leaving the dealership because the turbo blew. Called them and they did nothing to try and help me except for give $200 for repair that cost $2,100. They said they to sent the $200 check 2 Mondays ago. I have never recieved this check. So, I put the new turbo in myself, and barely 30 miles of driving it blows out. So, this time I took it to a professional mechanic. He said the bottom of the engine is blown which is why the turbos keep blowing. The dealership said the engine was good and it just needed a turbo. I'm paying on $10,000 paperweight because the dealer sold me a car with a blown motor and didn't tell me about it. I am now wothout a car and struggling to get to work and have no way of getting around. The dealership knew I was in the military prior to me purchasing the car. Is there anything that can be done here?
