Legal Answers
48 Questions Answered

Q. I made a partial payment on a time barred loan but it had it reversed in less than 2 minutes. Can they still sue me?
A: If the debt is otherwise time-barred, the creditor would have to file suit against you and allege that your reversed payment was agreeing to pay the debt. Based on what you say, you do not appear to have agreed to repay the debt. Also, the creditor has to have informed you that the debt is or may be time-barred. Its failure to do so is a violation of the Massachusetts Attorney General's Fair Debt Collection Regulations and the Federal Fair Debt Collection Practices Act. If the creditor does sue you, in addition to claiming you did not intend to revive the debt by making the reversed payment, be sure to make it known that the creditor did not give you the required warnings about the debt being time-barred, if that be the case.
Q. In MA if you receive a notice to appear in court to mark docket satisfied is it important that I go?
A: I do not see why you have to go to court in order to have the debt marked satisfied in full.Normally my office just sends the paperwork to the court indicating the debt has been paid. I suggest you call the clerk's office to get clarification as to the necessity of your appearance. You could also cal the plaintiff or their attorney and ask that they send whatever is necessary to the court to indicate the debt is satisfied.
Q. I’m taking my seller to small claims over non disclosure. She also never disclosed she’s a realtor. Can I sue her lawyer
A: Why do you want to sue the lawyer? Did he/she make any false statements or refuse to disclose the faulty major appliance when he would have been expected to? If not, I do not see the basis for a suit against the lawyer. Also, if you had an inspection of the premises that would have disclosed the faulty major appliance, the seller can use that as a defense. Good luck.
