Welcome! My name is Maverick. I very much enjoy what I do and I hope that you will benefit from this information.
1. Whose handwriting is in the original inventory written in?
2. Is that dated and signed by both parties?
3. Is there any way to prove that he added things to the list after the sale?

I was suppose to work at the salon after even selling the salon, but they denied when after agreement was done like 20 days. told me onlywork on sunday. so I opened a shop not far away from the salon. nothing on contract though not to open or open w/in certain miles. Now she also has owner carry left which is 5 k. she wrote the 5 checks. suppose to start on May 1st, but wrote me from June 1st. I didn't say anything. now this problem happened. they want like over 20 k. and I sold the shop with all equipments and whatever listed on inventory... for 35k. got 30k and 5k is owner carry
