    I need some help in writing an agreement between another landscaper who owes me money. He owes me $4000.00 and agreed to pay it back by the end of the summer but I want it in writing. Can some help me write something that would hold up in court if it ever came down to that.

    Yes. A competent attorney could hopefully write such a document for you. Good luck.

    Actually I was hoping someone on here could save me the time and money that it would cost me to go to a lawyer

    You are asking for members to practice law --- if we were lawyers, we probably wouldn't be here. Frankly, I wouldn't want the liablity of risking giving you inadequate advice. Best advice: Consult an attorney since laws vary by state and country.
     
  5. I agree consult a lawyer. Any fresh out of Law school lawyer should be able to help you out on this. And it shouldn't cost you and arm and leg either.
     
  6. I would be glad to help you pro bono.

    I just pasted the bar exam at Andy's Highway Tavern.

    Andy has a Sunday license.

    :D LOL Is there a difference between pasted and wasted?
     
  8. Hello Everybody:

    I can't give advise & anybody that listens to anything that anybody says on the Internet is a FOOL!

    First of all it is a Big NO NO to do Business with Family or Friends (Possibley Landscapers T00) because they will stick it to you real bad. A stranger in most cases would be scared to do this to you.

    A lawyer will probably ask you why are you doing it & can you afford to do it, if you never get paid back. If you trust this guy enough to loan him the Money, he should Trust you enough to put up good Collateral in case he decides not to pay. If he will not put up Collateral, he must not plan on paying you back?

    If he doesn't have Collateral why would you loan him money, do you have any clue to how many excuses is made daily why folks can't pay back money they owe to others? It's mind boggeling! :)

    LOL, Sounds like Stones Legal Services (has a nice ring to it?), Collateral or you ain't got it & you wish you did because if you had it you would give it to him is your best bet?

    Or you could come up with an excuse why you can't loan the money? Do you have any clue to how many excuses is made daily why folks can't loan others money? It's mind boggeling! :) LOL

    Delphi forum's www.delphi.com, where Stone had/has his forum and search for one. There is one for lawyers to give free legal advise. Maybe they can help.

    Have you ever tried a pre-paid legal service?
    I signed up for one late last year. Cost me about $20 per month, but they can help you out when you need it.
