Q. Can a car lot in Georgia charge me a fee to get my personal items out of a car that was just repossessed?
A: If the car is not merely being held in the lot and still in your name, then I would see no reasons why you could not get your personal belongings. If, however, the car is repossessed meaning that you are no longer the rightful owner then it is up to rightful owner to decide whether or not you have access to the car. Try to work it out with them as I am sure that your personal belongings mean nothing to them unless they have a policy that any personal belongings left in the car at the time of repossession are now here lawful possessions of the new owner, then you may have to live without whatever it was your left behind.
Q. Can a Rental Home Furnishing Company sell their customer information without notifying them?
A: What did the notification say? If it said that they were going sell your information to a third party unless you expressly object or something along those lines and you did not object, then they are probably selling your information. Furthermore, I would bet that the contract says that they will sell your information unless you expressly agree otherwise so read the contract and the sign carefully. If you did expressly state that you did not want your information sold, then report them to the better business bureau and possibly the police as well since they have not opened you up to potential identity theft.
Q. ON THE INTERNET AND NO WHERE DOES IT SAY THAT THE PRICE IS A DOWN PAYMET.CAN I HOLD THE BUSINESS TO THE PRICE ADVERTISE?
A: How do you know better? Where does it say it is the down payment? If it says that somewhere and you know it, then you are bound by those terms. Normally, the price is an offer and if you accept the offer without making any changes, then you have a legal binding contract. You seem to have some extra information and you can't pretend you don't know it if you want the protection of the law.
Q. What if a dealership brings a different car with different vin after signing a contract. (After 10 days from signing.)
A: Delcine the car ~ it's not the car you bargained for .....do not take the car, it could be stolen and you could end up in jail. There is no 3 say right of refusal if yo are not just getting the car and it's not even the car you bargained for. Get your money back and get away from whoever this car dealer or broker is and report them to the Better Business Bureau ` and the police.
Q. Does the six year statute of limitations for credit card debt expire at the time a case is filed or heard?
A: When the statute of limitations runs on a credit card debts does not necessarily have anything to do with any of the factors you have mentioned. The statute will keep running as long as you are receiving and paying, or using, the card. When that stopped is not clearly set forth in this case. The court can figure it out but you should have a consumer law attorney look at ALL the factors before you assume that you are going to walk into court and have your case dismissed based on the statute, imperfection or service or otherwise; with all due respect.
Q. My dad died leaving a car loan in his name do we have to pay only one year left or will they take the car
A: Unless there was someone else on the loan for the car, then the car loan company owns the car. If you can pay for the car or if you can refinance the car and the loan company will work with you, then you can assume payments for the car, or in the event that you can own the car outright, then you can own the car outright. If nobody can assume the loan or pay outright for the car, then the car is just a liability of the estate and it will most likely go back to the lien holder.
Q. What can i do? Capitol one has my father as the purchaser and co-signer of my vehicle and it is under my ss#.
A: This is a mess. You need to contact all your credit agencies, the dealership, your father, and anyone else involved and get this straightened out before the vehicle gets repossessed and you and your father go to jail for fraud for allowing this to continue for long and knowing about it.
Q. A used car dealer sold me a car with a branded title. I just found out three years later. What are my options
A: What do you mean by branded tittle? Do you mean clear title? Meaning that there are other liens on the car. Then your recourse is against the person who sold you the car and in the worst scenario the car was stolen in which case you need to turn the car over to the authorities with all your paper work and you still might be arrested for theft by receiving. If there are just other liens on the car, you are no responsible for those liens. The best practice is to have a title search before buying a car by a reputable care dealer so you don't end up in these situations.
Q. Do I need a consumer lawyer?
A: If you don't want this company looking into everyone's credit report then send them a certified letter to cease and desist. Find another management company in the process. Also put your creditors (and have your father and sister put their creditors on alert in case of identity theft). If they authorized that their credit be pulled, then now you must stop it. You can also google the FTC for much free information on identity theft that you can do yourself with an attorney. If they not done anything wrong at this point, then there is not much an attorney can do to help you. If the do anything illegal, then file a police report immediately. Watch this closely until it is finally resolved.
