I own an apartment building. My tenant moved out of a unit

I own an apartment building. My tenant moved out of a unit on April 20, 2016. I had forgotten to contact DWP to put the service for the unit in my name. I contacted LA DWP a couple of weeks ago and wanted to start electric service on the unit as of April 20th. They want me to pay 2300.00 because he failed to pay his electric bills before turning it over to me. (This is an accumulation of nearly two years.) I have a rental agreement that states he is responsible for utility bills except for water. I have receipts for rent that I have recorded.I went ahead and paid the bill with my credit card. The account was in his name. I started service in my name as of today. Can I stop payment on the credit card transaction. Would they turn the power off?

I have a similar question. I am not concerned about getting

I have a similar question. I am not concerned about getting my deposit back; but I am concerned about being forced to purchase the vehicle.I signed a CT "Retail Purchase Order for Motor Vehicle" for a car that was 'in transit.' And has only now become available for delivery. Since the original signing, I have had the opportunity to look at other vehicles and am having second thoughts. Am I obligated to continue with the purchase of this vehicle?A few facts:(1) the purchase order at the bottom says "THIS ORDER IS NOT BINDING UNTIL SIGNED AND ACCEPTED BY DEALER." It was never signed by the dealer. The copy in my possession only has my signature. Wouldn't this mean that nothing is binding yet?(2) the back of the order has item 11: "if you agree to assist me in obtaining financing for any part of the purchase price, this order shall not be binding upon you or me until all of the credit terms are presented to me in accordance with regulation "z" (truth in lending) and are accepted by me. If I do not accept the terms when presented, I may cancel this order and my deposit will be refunded." Financing was a part of the deal, yet I have neither seen or signed any term details, etc.(3) the trade in to be used was declared up front to be someone else's car that the would relinquish either in person or via notarized proxy. Couldn't they just refuse to do so and that get me out??

I purchased a new vehicle yesterday. I was told that the APR I would be paying was because of the discount I was receiving on the vehicle. The financing is through Chase and is at 3.9%. Chase's published auto loan rates are at 2%. Is this legal? I was an auto dealer at one time and if I remember correctly, this is in violation of Truth in Lending (reg Z)

Here is my issue: I bought a new car yesterday. The sticker

Hi,Here is my issue:I bought a new car yesterday. The sticker price is $25885 and the dealer is giving me discount of $4385. They told me I had to pay sales tax on the full price which I understand is correct but they added some of the incentive on top of the $25885 making the sale price $28,500. That makes me overpay sales tax and increases the bot***** *****ne.Is what they did legal and can I brake the contract?I appreciate your time.Mila

I recently purchased a new auto the interest rate was be be

I recently purchased a new auto the interest rate was be be 1.9 percent. When I received my first invoice for my first payment I was confused in how interest calculated so called dealer.Was told simple interest used. Ask for the calculation used said they would get back to me.So I did some exploring on the Internet and discovered that the interest being used was 1.93 percent. When I went to dealer they explained that because the contract was signed on 08/15/15 and the first payment is due on 9/28/15. That the interest started on 8/15 and not 9/28And that is the difference. I said how can interest start before the first payment. They said this was the norm. The I told them that I did not ask for the 1st payment to be on 9/28. And why was this not explained or mentioned in any way. I was not told or given any option in the matter they just automatically to it with no disclosure. Is this a legal practice? I purchased the auto in Rhode Island. Seems like a deceptive practice to me. Thanks Joe

question relates to debt settlement. many companies offering this service do not do business in as many as 20 states. Is this because it's not legal in those states, or because licensing is to onerous in those states?
