Several months ago, I paid someone to patch up the bumper on
Several months ago, I paid someone to patch up the bumper on my car. Today, the repairman called me and gave me some shocking news: he had used materials stolen from his boss (who owns an auto body shop) to make the repair. He said that I may get a call soon from his boss, and warned me to deny that I had ever worked with him, or I could get my car towed.Could I be held responsible for the fact that stolen materials were used to fix my car?What would be the best way to navigate a possible impound of my car to minimize the inconvenience to me?Could I recover the cost of the repair so I can get it redone if the shop owner wants to strip my car of his stolen materials?Additionally, I have reason to believe that I could put my life in danger by cooperating with a police investigation due to retaliation from the repairman and/or his friends. Could I obtain police protection during and after the investigation?
I just came across your site while researching a question.
Hello. I just came across your site while researching a question. Do you provide free initial consultation? I am not sure yet if I will need an attorney. My situation is that on 10/2/16 I placed an envelope in my landlord's mailbox (as I had done on other occasions). The envelope contained a money order for August rent, a check for October rent and a note. On 10/3 and 10/4 she sent me a text and an email stating that she received the check and what was stated on the note; however on 10/19/16 I received a 10 day notice to quit or pay rent and when I called her she said that she did NOT receive the check or money order. I have a copy of her text and email stating that she received it though. I was able to place a stop on the check and get a cashier's check instead but I have to wait 90 days to replace the money order (I do have the receipt and also a letter from the bank confirming that it will take 90 days to reissue). I am concerned that she will still move forward with the eviction and am wondering if my evidence is strong enough on its own to present to a judge or should we try to get a low-cost attorney. Thank you for your time.JA: The Landlord-Tenant Lawyer's require payment for their services. It's way less expensive on JustAnswer than face-to-face would cost. Because laws vary from place to place, can you tell me what state the property is in?Customer: IndianaJA: What are the terms of the lease? Any issues related to maintenance or upkeep?Customer: No nothing major. She hasn't come by to repair a toilet or put knobs on the cabinets but nothing making it uninhabitable.JA: Anything else you want the lawyer to know before I connect you?Customer: Only that I sent a letter to the landlord today via certified mail stating the facts and payments that I made to her previously showing we should be up to date.

Star Power can install solar panels for anyone including a renter if they want to pay for them. Our obligation is to properly handle the install. Are you still interested in going solar or no? We have the materials and that's the biggest problem. Once Star Power lays out this kind of money we have to recoup it".
We are in negotiations with a 501c3 to purchase our
We are in negotiations with a 501c3 to purchase our property, to help offset the capital gains taxes, at one point years ago, they offered to over pay us for the property and in return we would donate the overpayment back to them as an In Kind Donation, thus receiving a tax deduction in the amount of the cap gains taxes. Now they say they cannot offer this as an incentive as it could jeopardize their not for profit status. Is that correct?
