Legal Answers
7 Questions Answered

Q. Roofer put wrong shingles on my roof. What can I do?
A: Yes. You may certainly ask that the issue be remedied; however, whether the roofer will agree is unlikely. Unfortunately for you, Texas courts strictly enforce the "four corners" of a contract - meaning the parties are held to the actual words and their plain meaning contained in the contract.
Q. Good Afternoon, I am a Texas subcontractor, I recently got a letter with lienholder can you help ?
A: More information is needed; clarification of the facts would better help me analyze your case. In general, a dispute with a subcontractor on job "A" needs to be dealt with separate and apart from a subsequent dispute with same subcontract on job "B". In general, you cannot withhold money due on job "B" for failure in performance of Job "A". Our firm assists many clients with contractor and subcontractor payment and breach of contract claims.

Q. My boyfriend lived with me for a month during my lease of 1 year. Can i get in trouble with this after my lease is up?
A: Most likely - No, you aren't in trouble. However, some lease agreement state that a guest can only stay for a specific amount of time before they must be added to the lease. Check the lease agreement to be sure. I would do what I could to prevent the roommate from "telling" the landlord until you receive your security deposit and or 30 days have expired from the time you moved out. Good Luck!
