Yes, absolutely! You are obligated to pay your rent, and you haven't done so yet. Since this was your landlord's issue and not your own, if your bank charges you a stop payment fee, it would be reasonable for you to request that the landlord allows you to discount the rent by that amount when you rewrite the check.

Your obligation wasn't to write a check...it was to pay your landlord. And you haven't actually paid until money has gone from you to the landlord. So you're still obligated to pay. (You might not have to write another check. Any method of payment the landlord accepts will work. But if they will only accept a check, then check it is.)

Yes, you are still obligated to pay the rent. I don't know Canadian law, but in the US, your obligation to pay a debt is generally relieved when control of the money passes to the other person. In a simple case, suppose you paid the landlord with cash. If you gave him the cash, and then as he was on his way to the bank to deposit it, or on his way to the ...

The Régie du Logement is the government agency responsible for setting regulations regarding leases in Québec. They are very clear that paying the rent in full is your #1 obligation as a tenant. When paying by cheque, the rent is generally deemed paid when it has been honoured by the tenant’s financial institution, according to the Régie link above. In your ...

Some landlords do this and others don't. You could always try pushing back but don't necessarily expect to get anywhere; if I were you I would focus on removing the 3% collar because the RPI and CPI are both below that - at the moment CPI is 0.6% and RPI is 1.9%. There are some interesting comments from landlords here including the point that repairs and ...

You've essentially made an "as-is" condition. You're letting it be known that you're inflexible on that item; they shouldn't bother trying to negotiate money back at closing or repairs prior to closing. If they try anyway and you decline, they don't forfeit earnest money; they're still within their rights to terminate based on inspection results so long as ...

I think your broker is correct. Item 2 is to clarify expectations and prevent any perception that discounts or repairs are being offered. It does not say that the buyer forfeits the earnest money just by asking for a change in terms. The contract has been accepted by both parties; either of you is free to propose changes (attempt to renegotiate), and unless ...

You voided the check, so now you still need to pay the rent. This is an area of law called "Mitigation of damages" -- everyone has a duty to prevent loss. Mainly, this shows up when you break a lease. You lease to December but on March 1, give notice for April 1. If you tell him ASAP, and he must make fair effort to find a new tenant ASAP. Once the ...

Here's a good link that can answer your question: How to take delivery of a futures contract The relevant part states: Prior to delivery day, they inform customers who have open long positions that they must either close out the position or prepare to take delivery and pay the full value of the underlying contract. By the same token traders with short ...

Is it an unattractive offer many buyers would shy away from? Buyer who have specific plan may skip getting into such deals as this would be an hindrance to resell the business. Others who are not sure, may buy it for to make money in future. Does it seem like a justifiably fair way to sell a domain, while keeping a stake in it? This is preview of ...

Not all futures contracts are deliverable. Some futures are specified as cash settlement only. In the case of deliverable contracts, part of the specification of a futures contract will be the delivery locations. As per my answer to your previous question, please see the CME Rulebook for details of delivery points for the deliverable futures contracts ...

You can complain to the property ombudsman, but before they can look at your complaint, you must complain directly to the Agent and complete their in-house complaints procedure https://www.tpos.co.uk/consumers/how-to-make-a-complaint

Unless the loan provider is pretty darned directly attached to the course provider, the loan is an independent transaction. It isn't the bank's fault the other company went into receivership; it isn't reasonable to expect them to cover your loss. Your best bet is to either try to get some of your money back from the course provider (which may take years for ...

By their agreements with the central counterparty - in the US, the exchange or the Options Clearing Corporation, which interposes itself between the counterparties of each trade and guarantees that they settle. From the CCP article: A clearing house stands between two clearing firms (also known as member firms or participants). Its purpose is to reduce ...

You put a stop payment on the check. At your landlords request true, but that is really irrelevant. You have made that payment null and void. You haven't paid your rent. If the money had already been taken out of your account, you might justifiably say that you paid, and the fact that they lost the check was their problem. But that's not what happened. ...

(Disclaimer: I work for a company that does housing contract negotiations daily, but IANAL.) Are we basically writing a contract with no teeth in regard to the inspection - no money back clause? Sorta. The contract is a "point in time" negotiation: it says, at the time it was written, you will not be making any repairs (under the assumption no repairs ...

In the event that payment is not made by the due date on the invoice then the transaction is essentially null and void and you can sell the work to another client. For your particular situation I would strongly suggest that you implement a sales contract and agreement of original transfer of work of art for any and all future sales of your original works of ...

The contract should address this issue. It will specify the types of remedies and damages that would result if either side tries to back out of the deal. There can be monetary penalties, and the courts can force the seller to complete the deal. Where I have experienced this it generally takes only a gentle reminder from the agent regarding the consequences....

Of course you are, since the rent cheque wasn't cashed. (Even if it was cashed by the thief, you still might owe him rent, but in that case I'd talk to a lawyer.) What you can/should do is tell the landlord that you're going to deduct the cost of stopping payment from this month's rent cheque.

It is actually more funny. 1: you likely get money back. See, the withhold ASSUMES the same income every month, but your HIWI income is lower. So, you acutally more likely OVERPAY than underpay. IF you underpay, then you have to pay (nachzahlen). It is extremely likely you get money back. 2: Yes, as in your tax return will result in a letter from tax ...

Prorated generally means a proportional amount based on the number of days. Considering a 30 day month. If tenant moves in on the 14th, tenant will reside there for 17 days. 17 divided by 30 is 56%. 56% of $1,200 is $680. Tenant will owe $680 for the month. EDIT: I see the ambiguity now. If $1,200 is the normally monthly stated rent then it stands to ...

This is part of the purchase contract, and you should talk to your realtor and/or attorney about what the specific conditions that are in your contract. My experience in Northern California (which may be different from Southern as there are two different "boiler plate" contracts used in these areas) is that you indeed have to file a notice to perform and ...

In the United States you can't setup your own charity matching site unless you are willing to go though state and federal regulations. If you aren't a charity then peoples donations to your site would not be counted as being a charitable gift, unless the you are regulated by the state a federal taxing authorities. If you want your money to be matched: find ...

IANAL, but I have read many times that oral contracts are just as legally binding as written contracts, the only difference being that it is difficult to prove exactly what was promised by each party. Again, I'm not a lawyer, but I can't see any logical reason why an "email contract" would not be at least as binding as an oral contract. I've visited plenty ...

The forms and notifications are not a condition for the cooling off period, they're part of the cooling-off compliance requirement. If the purchase qualifies, the seller must comply with all the cooling off requirements, including providing you with the cancellation forms. But if the seller didn't give you cancellation forms - it doesn't mean that you lose ...

Speaking as a Landlord (only of one property but it counts :) ) I don't have a clause like that in the contract, however each year my agency looks at the state of the local rental market and recommends whether (and if so by how much) the rent should be increased. I normally take a quick look at the market myself to sanity check their figures. When we know ...

As mentioned in other answers, you find out by reading the Rulebook for that commodity and exchange. I'll quote a couple of random passages to show how they vary: For CME (Chicago Mercantile Exchange) Random Length Lumber Futures, the delivery is ornate: Seller shall give his Notice of Intent to Deliver to the Clearing House prior to 12:00 noon (on ...

It seems like someone copied the language wrong. As written, this should say something less than the monthly rate unless the move-in date is the first of the month. A standard language would say something like "the prorated portion of the monthly rent of $1200." I'd change it to the correct number before signing the agreement. If the landlord wants to ...

Keep in mind, if the name is trademarked, you might have it taken away from you. If it's generic, there's a good chance the potential buyer would just move on and set up another domain name. Consider web names such as Stockpickr. The proper spelling is there, and remains unused, "This domain may be for sale" at the top of the page. I'm guessing they asked ...
