Legal Answers
Q. I purchased used carbut I want to return it. Called me to resign contract. Can I return at this point
A: You cannot buy a car and then decide you want to return it. However, the dealer can sell you a car and if they cannot find you financing within 10 days, then they can ask for the car back and cancel the contract. The dealer cannot make you sign a new contract. So if you are in this position, (i.e. the dealer cannot find financing), then you give the dealer 2 options: 1) you return the car and the contract is cancelled; or 2) the dealer becomes your finance company. Make these offers in writing and get a written response from the dealer.
Q. In 2018 i was hit with a bankruptcy on my credit report that is not mine . How can I remove it
A: you need to send a dispute letter to each credit bureau, identifying yourself clearly, and disputing the entry on your credit. The credit bureaus will then need to investigate and remove the entry. If they do not, you may have a case against them and at that point you will want to contact a lawyer that practices consumer protection law. For the dispute, go to annualcreditreport.com and follow the steps. Do not dispute online... always send a written dispute by mail.
Q. I sold a house by owner. I have no real estate agent but the buyers have. Closing was on 4/21 but buyer failed because
A: it depends. more facts are needed and you need to speak directly with an attorney that handles real estate transactions law. you may end up having to pay more (to an attorney, court fees, and in you are in break then damages to the other side) to fight the sale over a 5 day difference so the real question is what is your reason for wanting to cancel the sale since it is now complete? you may have to consult with an attorney directly before you do anything else.
