Can I ask one more question to this case (see below) please?

Can I ask one more question to this case (see below) please?The purchase price as agreed is $145.000.- as the contract shows. This is an extraordinary high price for a mobile home in this park, where prices for this size are normally by around $80.000.-/$85.000.- Is there any possibility to ask for a 'Fair Market Value' with the result of a price reduction by law?Old Question:Would you be so kind to check in general the attached "Lease with Purchase Option" Contract? We told the landlord in written Form on January 12th 2017 that we decided to buy this home and ask him to proceed. He wants to have a money order of $100.000.- within 3 hours. This was not possible then (weekend) and after the 15th he wrote that the contract expired and he is not ready to sell the house. For my opinion we was entitled to make the purchase decision until 01/15 which not means that we have to pay for it latest on 01/15/2017.

My car was hit on 06/30/2015 when it was parked in my

My car was hit on 06/30/2015 when it was parked in my apartment parking. The damage done was on the passenger side front door and backdoor. I called up my insurance company and reported them the incident. I also inquired about the deductibles. They opened a claim for it. But I didn't pursue with the claim. Instead I lowered the deductibles and reported it as a different incident on 07/21/2015. It was my first time and I didn't understand how to handle it. After multiple back and forth calls with the SIU investigator I couldn't prove the second claim was different from the first claim and hence had to sign a property damage withdrawal form. Is there a way I can reopen the first claim or atleast get the insurance company share the costs? It was definitely an accident. I couldn't just prove the dates.I have been paying the premiums regularly for more than 3 years.

I'm in the process of buying a condo. We hit a bump in the

Hi, I'm in the process of buying a condo. We hit a bump in the road - namely, that the original owner has tenants in the condo that they said would be given 30 days notice once I received my clear to close. After I got my clear to close, they contacted my realtor and asked if I would be willing to have the tenants live there a little longer if they paid me rent since they hadnt found a new place yet. I said no, and they responded that, well, shucks, the tenants aren't leaving. Assuming that they were squatting, we were hopeful that the issue would be solved within a few weeks, with the owners offering the tenants money to leave. As the date grew close, we were told that it wasn't the tenants fault at all - the tenants had a lease that went until april that we were not informed about, and had no plans on leaving until then. We should have closed in early December, but now we can't until April. That ruined a lot of my plans for the year. They agreed to take $9,000 off the purchase price since they were in breach of contract, and they came to us with some paperwork specifying the conditions. We returned the paperwork with a few addendums - mainly, that if we were unable to close in April, that I would retain the right to pursue any legal means to be reimbursed for my damages. They just sent back an addendum to that addendum that seems to limit my legal options, and I'd like to get an opinion of whether or not I should go forward with their addendum.JA: Because laws vary from place to place, can you tell me what state the property is in?Customer: MichiganJA: Has anything been filed or reported?Customer: Legally? No, just a few contract addendums back and forth between us and the seller.JA: Anything else you want the lawyer to know before I connect you?Customer: I'd like to be able to attach the addendums

I leased a new vehicle in Connecticut with the understanding

I leased a new vehicle in Connecticut with the understanding my son could drive the car and had 36,000 miles on the three year agreement. I also was told I did not have to make a oyment right awy. Yhis morning I read the agreement and it only gives 10,00 miles a year, only I can drive the vehicle and payments started on the day I bought the car. I already have over 200 miles on the car, they were aware of my daily commute, and I really feel like I was misled. I want to increase the mileage to 45,000 miles and include my son Stephen as a driver. What can I do? I leased the car 12/23/16. Peggy MosleyJA: Because laws vary from place to place, can you tell me what state the property is in?Customer: I leased the car in Connecticut and have MA plates on the car at this point, I still need to get a sticker, I just put the plates on last week.JA: Has anything been filed or reported?Customer: No, also the radio is not functioning properly, and I did speak to the sales rep about tat recently, and he said I could bring the car to any dealership to have it fixed. I asked if the meliage was 30,00 or 36,00, I did not have the paperwork with me, and he said he was not sure, but he definitely told me it was 36,000 when I leased the car.JA: Anything else you want the lawyer to know before I connect you?Customer: My previous car was totaled, and was under some pressure to get a new vehicle, so I was just believing what the rep was saying and the fincance manager so I could get the rental turned in. I really felt like I could trust this group! They are Suburban group off route 87 iin Connecticut. I went there because I had received a letter from '''capital One that I could get a good rate if I bought a car from this group, and I was having some financial difficulties from a bankruptcy I flied a year ago related to an ex-husband property screw up, that I was technically not responsible for, but that is another long story!!!
