Hello there,I bought a newly built property in October last year, and I found a serious issue that there's wastewater pooling under my deck. I gathered enough evidence to prove that the issue was caused by a wastewater pipe leak on my property before I purchased the property.However, the seller refuses to fix it and claims it's not their responsibility after providing all this evidence to them.Plan to take legal action to resolve this.The whole process is stated here https://docs.google.com/document/d/17UHByVcH5z3T2dWmVma7O7Q5yuoxvLILRs2zhCbcGC … read more

I entered into a verbal agreement with someone to create a
I entered into a verbal agreement with someone to create a product over the past 8 months. The verbal agreement was that we would invest 50% each of the initial capital and do 50% of the workload with a 50% profit split. The company was set up in my name and he is not a shareholder. After 5 months he had done nothing and I had done all the work. We rearranged the profit split to 70/30 with the agreement that he would begin helping more. He still hasn't done anything, but the product is selling well now and I don't see how it is fair for us to continue. I've offered him a full return of his initial investment plus 20% interest on his money, but he wants his investment plus 20% profits till January 2020. What legal rights do I have? This is in New Zealand … read more
