- Q. My son maybe subject to have a timeshare willed to him. Can he decline acceptance and avoid expences of a timeshare?
- A: I agree with Mr. Hales. In addition, I will note that time share companies can be difficult to deal with. So, I would reiterate that seeking a North Carolina attorney's assistance would be prudent.
- Q. Is there a way to legally terminate a fencing contract when they didn't complete the work?
- A: I am sorry to hear that this happened to you. It is good that you asked prior to doing anything. It is always important to look to the contract first. Basically, look at your contract and see if there are provisions governing when the fence must be installed, when your payments must be made, and what happens in the event that one or the other is not completed. If there is a provision governing this situation, carefully review it. In fact, I suggest using a local North Carolina attorney to advise you on your rights per the contract. You can also ask the fencing company for assurances that it plans to finish the fence and when it will be finished. All of this helps your case that the fencing company abandoned its promised obligations and breached the contract. At some point, if the fence is not completed, and a North Carolina attorney has reviewed your contract and the situation, you may want to finish the fence and sue for damages. This is called mitigation. You should have a local attorney read the contract and listen to your situation. Then he/she can advise you for your next steps.
- Q. Is there an option to cancel a purchase contract when dealing with a used car at a used car dealership?
- A: The first place you should look is your purchase contract with the dealership. See what rights and obligations you have regarding the purchase. If you have an option to return the truck, or have the dealership repair it, the purchase contract should outline your rights. If the contract is not specific or completely negates all rights to have the truck replaced, returned, or repaired, you have fewer options. If the dealership mislead you about the truck's condition, whether fraudulent or negligent, your options are more open. In any event, you should contact a North Carolina attorney that deals with the automobile industry or contracts generally. Keep in mind the following questions: Have you looked at the contract? Have you had the truck looked at by a mechanic shop? What representations did the dealership make in connection with the vehicle? What type of damage is the vehicle suffering from? Did you, or another on your behalf, inspect the vehicle prior to purchase?
