Typically the landlord will have a preexisting clause in the lease that says the landlord may choose to amend the lease at a later date. While that may be in contracts, I don't see that holding up in court. You can't unilaterally amend contracts to add new terms without acceptance on part of the lessee. Any clause in the contract like that will require ...

It is unlikely that you could successfully sue the bank for breach of contract, but of course the first thing you should do is carefully read the agreement and see exactly what they promised. It is understandable that you would like to get your money right now, but that isn't necessarily guaranteed under the agreement. Assuming there is no statement in the ...

They are probably not required to provide online access at all. They are probably required to provide some sort of written statement, unless you have waived that in favor of online or electronic versions. The exact requirements will vary in different jurisdictions.

Is there a way to specifically reach out to these card providers and opt-out of the binding arbitration? Sure, you can write and ask. But you've signed a binding contract to open an account (or accepted new terms for an existing account) that has a binding arbitration clause in it. Both parties have to agree to renegotiate a contract. Why would a bank ...

It would be unproductive to file a regular lawsuit for so small an amount, but you might want to consider small claims court, assuming that's available where you are. $600 should be well within the limit, and it's relatively inexpensive to file. You will have to show up on your assigned date or automatically lose, so make sure you can take any arbitrary ...

Does the person who is given permission to sign as the "Authorized Signature" (at the bottom of the bank check) have to sign exactly as the real Authorized Signer or just use one's own style to sign as the Authorized Signature? The bigger question is whether a signature on a check made with the permission of someone who is allowed by the bank to sign ...

Under federal law, an employer may impose direct deposit as a condition of employment. The Electronic Funds Transfer Act at 15 USC 1693k only says that employers may not require an employee to have a bank account at a particular bank: No person may— (1) condition the extension of credit to a consumer on such consumer’s repayment by means of ...

Ultimately, it would be possible to bring suit against the trustee of the plan or the bank managing it to demand access and such a suit would be unlikely to go to trial. This is governed by federal law, so either party could remove it from state court to federal court if it was not brought initially in federal court. Once it got to that stage, the trustee ...

Who authorized the transfers? Banks don't transfer money without someone telling them to do so. Assuming it was your son there are several possibilities: You didn't log off from a banking session allowing him to access it. Legally, you authorized the transfers. You stored your sign-in credentials on the computer allowing your son to access them. Legally, ...

The manager is basically right. An at will employee can have their job terminated or relocated, and can have title's changed, for no reason. If the company knew that you would be relocated at the time of hiring, there is arguably a misrepresentation issue although proving damages would be hard. Failing to accept the relocation might be grounds to be ...

Your last paragraph asks for legal advice which is off topic here; you should talk to a lawyer. Having said that: You may not be able to prove you owned the BTC when they were only worth 250 USD, but how far back can you prove you owned them? If you can show you have held them for a while it strengthens your claim. Can you get your friend to testify about ...

This site on Ohio landlord/tenant law says: Ohio’s landlord/tenant code does not include detailed rules when it comes to rental terms, but it does require that a landlord must include certain terms in the lease agreement. A tenant legally agrees to follow these rules when she signs the lease agreement. ... The lease should state when rent is due and ...

Make a written contract. Lay out in it things like access to your room and financial situation. By having a contract, any action against it is a breach of this contract and could have consequences laid out in said contract as long as these are reasonable.

Articles 66, 67 and 115 of the "General Taxes Law" of Spain demand you are able to prove those earnings' source, and legality, and that taxation has been performed for them; for 4 years (theoretically, in practice from 4 and a half to almost 5 and a half, depending on the month when they were earned). Otherwise, nothing else than that ohwilleke had already ...
