Thank you for your question. I look forward to working with you to provide you the information you are seeking for educational purposes only.
While the lemon law does not cover mobile homes, warranty law and your right to redhibition and product liability law does apply. If the product is not conforming to standards and is defective, then they must fix it in a timely manner or must replace it or refund the money (their choice) under warranty law. If the seller/manufacturer cannot repair the item in a reasonable time, you can sue for redhibition in that the product did not have the quality represented and was defective in addition to suing for breach of warranty for failure to abide by and honor the warranty.
So, if the manufacturer/seller will not replace or refund your money and cannot repair in a reasonable time, your next step is to file a complaint to the LA Attorney General since under Federal Law (Manguson Moss Warranty Act) they must offer mediation for any warranty claims. If the AG cannot resolve this, you have grounds to sue for breach of warranty and redhibition and seek to get a refund and any expenses incurred as a result of their defective product. You have only 1 year to file suit from date of the defect appearing.

It worked great. I had the facts and I presented them to my ex-landlord and she folded and returned my deposit. The 50 bucks I spent with you solved my problem.

Is this service only 35$? Texas. I live in texas and back in
I live in texas and back in 2011 i purchased my own home. Ive been living in this home paying every single bill on my own. Until my boyfriend at the time unexpectedly didnt know his lease was up, which im not sure how that happens, and advised me that he would need to move out his apartment. I suggested for him to move in with his mom, he didnt like that idea, and after a few days of driving around with his clothes in his truck, he started bringing his clothes and things into my house that started an argument as i didnt want to live together this all happened this past nov. He stayed, and made a payment towards my mortgage in dec to march. In march i simply asked him when did he plan on paying his half of dish bill he was behind on that turned into a heated argument, which turned physical on his part and the cops was called. He tells the police that i stabbed him with an ink pen, which i did not and he later admitted to that, yet still i got arrested. I got bonded out by my parents and even to today still staying with them while i pay my mortgage. Meanwhile between march 26 the day i was arrested to around april 4, he didnt pay anything and wasnt planning to. One day i went inside my home while he was gone and saw that he had half way moved out, the closet was empty except one bag. He met up with me at a fiesta store to give him this bag of clothes. So i figured ok he is gone now and moved out, afterwards i changed the locks. Now because he cant find an apt due to a family violence charge on him for hitting me he is threatening to go to court for an illegal eviction. I am scared for my life and have not returned home. He has a gun. Living together could become fatal. What are my rights? Who has the burden of proof? No written agreement as he refused to sign the one i made.… read more
