Legal Answers
160 Questions Answered

Q. How much of a warranty do home builders have to provide on newly constructed homes?
A: It will depend on the original contract between the homeowner and the builder as to what warranties exist. Any issues that arise that are a result of faulty construction could potentially be brought against the builder within six years of the original work. Your contractor is probably thinking of the three year statute of limitations on breach of contract.
Q. I am a co leesee on an automobile. Do I have any rights? I'm in North Carolina
A: As a co lessee you have all the the same rights as the other lessee.
Q. How do I sue for unpaid wages
A: At this point, you should consult with an attorney for your options in pursuing the balances that you claim are due to you. An attorney will need more detail and will need to review any documentation that you have.
Q. Company wants me to sign a non compete. Can they hold this against me if i never start with them?
A: In order for a non-compete to be valid, there must be some consideration. Usually, the consideration is in conjunction with the employment itself. Unless they provided you with some consideration other than the employment, it would not be valid.
Q. Can a business avoid paying a debt by giving assets to someone else? (Debt was a mortgage for an investment property).
A: It depends on the transaction and how it is structured. Generally you can't avoid debts by transferring property and assets to insiders, particularly for no payment. The creditor can file an action to avoid the transfer based on several factors. Thus, if you are tranferring assets, it has to be for a legitimate business purpose and for the value of the asset. Since your questions are fairly detailed, you will need to discuss the transactions with an attorney for complete assistance.
Q. What if tenant in retail space declares bankruptcy and is being evicted? How do you evict them? (
A: You will need to seek relief in the bankruptcy court. Once the bankruptcy is filed, there is an automatice stay on all actions against the debtor.
Q. No contract with employer can he block me from doing business with a company after I leave his company?
A: Non-compete clauses are valid in North Carolina. However, they must be in writing and have other requirements. If you don't have a written non-compete clause, then there is no prohibition against competition.
Q. Non Compete Agreements are they enforcable in NC
A: Yes, non-competes are generally enforceable in North Carolina. However, there are certain requirements and it is also a fact-specific analysis. You should certainly have an attorney review the non-compete before taking any action.
Q. With Lien notice, how much time before sale of home in NC?
A: The creditor will have to have a Writ of Execution issued. Then the sheriff will have the authority to seize the house to satisfy the judgment. The timing depends on how soon the clerk can issue the writ and how fast the creditor gets it into the hands of the sheriff. The creditor may also object to your exemptions which will then require a court hearing on the exemptions.
