Legal Answers
9 Questions Answered
Q. Can I get my 21k back from my friend that I transferred to for business?
A: It is possible under a claim for unjust enrichment, which I will post below. The difficult part is where there is no written contract (besides text messages) there is no attorney's fees provisions. Meaning you would likely have to go pay an attorney to go after the 21k and not be able to record that money back. You can see if you can get an attorney to do it on contingency (meaning they take a portion if they recover the money) but it is hard to find an attorney to do that for this type of case because even if you get a judgement for the money, it could be uncollectable if they have no money/assets in their name or hide them. In Florida, a claim for unjust enrichment requires a showing that: The plaintiff has conferred a benefit on the defendant; The defendant has knowledge of the benefit; The defendant has accepted or retained the benefit; and The circumstances are such that it would be inequitable for the defendant to retain the benefit without paying fair market value for it. Contracts aside, in the court of equity unjust enrichment is a serious claim. A claim for unjust enrichment is a great option where there is no written contract or where the contract was not reduced to writing. The court will consider all the facts and circumstances of the matter and determine whether it would be fair to award the plaintiff restitution for the benefit conferred to the defendant.
Q. Hello, I have been paying my daughter's quinceanera for a year and it was supposed to be in May 29, 2020. They won't
A: Take a look at the contract with them to see if there there is any termination/cancellation provision that speaks to this first. For example, they may take a small cancellation fee instead of the whole amount since you are giving them more than 30 days' notice. It seems to me that many places have been willing to negotiate and waive the fees given the situation. I would recommend calling them and explaining that although restrictions may be lifted, you have family members who still cannot travel, etc. It also isn't recommended to have large gatherings even if restrictions are lifted. If that does not work then you may want to hire a lawyer to draft a letter to them demanding the return of your deposit depending on the amount at issue. Hope this helps!
Q. If A contract is signed on April 16, 2016 and is told that it last up to 3 years is it safe to say that my contract has
A: Yes according to that section. But I would recommend reading the entire contract to make sure for example there wasn't an automatic renewal or anything you needed to do on your end to cancel/terminate the contract.
