I filled out an application that included a $500 holding

I filled out an application that included a $500 holding fee. I was not made aware until after I completed the application that all utilities would remain in the company's name and be added to the rent every month. We have a budget and would not have signed the application if we knew this beforehand but the company is refusing to reimburse our money. Are we owed our holding fee since they did not disclose this information beforehand?JA: 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: It's a 12 month lease. No issues with maintenance or upkeep. We did not sign the lease because we saw the information about the utilities.JA: Anything else you want the lawyer to know before I connect you?Customer: No

I am a Notary in the State of Indiana. I have closed for a

I am a Notary in the State of Indiana. I have closed for a Notary service a Loan on 06/15/2016. As far as my information goes all documents were executed correctly.On the 06/22/2016 I was informed I forgot the stamp on the deed of Trust. I know that is a mistake but I have corrected the problem right away and in addition, I have enclosed a loose Acknowledgment and overnighted the documents. After giving it some time I have noticed that I have not received the agreed payment as of today 09/21/2016. Naturally, I asked for my pay, the service explained in an email to me today that they had flagged my pay since I had made a big error and they had so much trouble with it. However, I did not hear any further complaints or other errors for this or was informed the Loan for this did not fund properly. Now they expect a fee reduction I do not find that appropriate.I am taking my commission very seriously and try to avoid any mistakes at all cost but sometimes the amount of paperwork it's just simply crazy especially for elderly ppl that have trouble signing and are unhappy about a number of signatures required. I do not try to excuse the forgotten stamp we are all humans and mistakes can be fixed and no harm was done as in this case. I am sure I would have heard about it and a claim would have been made to my Error & Omissions insurance.I know this industry is sometimes not the most honest in my years in this capacity I have heard a lot and as it is said you have to be washed with all waters to work in this industry and expect sometimes not to be paid at all. My question is do I have to accept this ? Since I have not heard any other complaints I find this what this service claimed a little false and they are looking for reasons to not pay the agreed amount. Is this legal? And what can I do without opening a can of worms and spending more on legal cost etc eventually collection? I have never received any complaints against me and always made sure and I try to stay compliant with the laws and regulations which cost also a lot of money. I just want to be informed what the legal side of all this is out of interest and how a handle such things in the future thank you.Thank you

I am going to small claims court tomorrow to sue a small

I am going to small claims court tomorrow to sue a small auto dealer (not franchise) for repairs to a car I purchased. I believe they will claim that as it was under warranty, my claim against them is invalid. The insurance company denied the claim as an "improper liquid" was found in the engine. I did NOT put the liquid in the engine. Other legal council stated: The dealer sold you a warranty which was void when they sold it.But I'm worried that I can't win.
