My husband and I are in the process of having a home built in an adult community in Ontario, Canada. When we went to the property yesterday we found an elementary school being built in our back yard. Did the sales person have an obligation to advise us of this. We only started the procedure three months ago so they definetely knew about this at that time. A school takes years to get approval.

Hi, I live in California. I've signed a contract to remodel my bathrooms for a month. Now I'm about to move and want to cancel the contract. The contract paper doesn't say anything about penalty on cancellation. I've deposite $1000 and I accept to loss that deposit. However, the contractor want me to pay 20% of the overall cost and that's the penalty for cancellation. If the contract doesn't say anything about penalty, can I refuse to pay it? thanks, ****

I financed a vehicle at a dealership the contract i signed for . is different finance company then what is calling me for payments is my contract still valid? Does the dealership have the right to write up a new contract without my signature?

BBB's Answer:

You would have to refer to the original contract and see if the finance company can sell your loan to another finance company. You may also want to verify that the loan is not in collections.

I signed a contract with a security company two years ago because the salesman who came to my house explicitly sold us on the fact that this wasn't a multi-year contract and we could cancel at any time. (Would that make the contract illegal?) Looking at the contract, it says it if for three years and if we want to cancel we have to provide written notice — but it doesn't say anything about us having to pay the remainder of the contract (as the company claims). Are we on the hook for the remaining balance of the three year contract if it isn't specified in the contract?

BBB's Answer:

I would contact the business and ask them directly where in the contract it states that you can't cancel without oaying the remainder of the term. I would also check with your state Attorney General's office as well.

I have a contract with a company in NJ that fabricates aluminum railings. I left the usual half payment. The contract states the job will be completed and installed in 3 to 5 weeks. Its now going on ten weeks. Can I cancel the contract for breach? Or would it be best to file a dispute with the credit card company for the deposit and see if that motivates the company.

What if someone offered to look at your product but you told them you couldnt afford it right now and did not authorize the work but he does it anyway and uses intimidation to get his way. There was no contract signed or agreed to he just gave me a quote. Now hes giving me 14 days to pay the 128.00cost or he will sell my sewing machine. He claims he can get alit of money for it. He also told me to only pay in cash no checks .he also stated that he doesnt make his clients pay taxes but threaten to charge me if i didnt pay him . Im tired of being intimidated and my sewing machine held for ransom. Ive got the paperwork and owners manual that proves its mine.im reluctant to pay him but if i dont i wont get my machine back.i did not see a licence or other info at hus home claiming it was a legit business . Im not sure what to do.

I have been made an offer to purchase a beauty supply store. However, the concern Im having is that the seller wants me to put a deposit now, and pay the balance April 2015. How soon should I give a deposit I think that is too long. Besides that the seller has a contract to lease the space until 2016, she wants me to continue the lease until then. Help please, little bit confused

A friend bought a used car from a dealer. After haggling over price the dealer agreed to sell at 10,000 and total price would be 11,000 for fees and tax included. When the buyer signed the price actually stated 12,500 and he did not see this price because the dealer said sign this and he did. He also speaks limited English as this is not his first language. Does he have any rights to negate this contract?? He feels he was taken advantage because of his limited understanding of English, which the dealer was aware of. He does have one witness that was with him when this occurred. Does the car dealer have a responsibility to explain the terms and cost being agreed upon? If the verbal agreement was one price and the contract was not the same is this fraud?
