do i have a strong small claims case ?

Answered 7 months ago by attorney Bruce Robins   |   1 Answer
In order to form an enforceable contract, there must be consideration exchanged on both sides.  You haven't indicated that this third party, whoever he or she is, received any consideration, i.e. anthing of value in return, for paying for the repairs. Sometimes consideraiton is not required if you deterimentally and reasonably relied on a promise.  This is known as promissory estoppel.  If you only got the repairs done in reliance on this promise, you may have a claim.  However, it will be difficult to prove that you only had the repairs because of the third party's promise to pay.  Also, some judges may not think you suffered any loss, because you did get your property repaired, and it is now presumably worth $2,500 more than it would have been without repairs.. As far as any clqaim against the seller, you may have a claim, but since his/her agreement to pay for repairs was oral, it may be difficult to prove it.  Also, if you have a writtten contract, any alleged oral representation which contradicts it is likely to be barred.  This is known as the parole evidence rule....

I'm  not sure I understand your question.  Why wouldn't you be able to sue her for breach of your contract to repay the loan?  Thats' what courts are for.  Of course, there's no guarantee that you'll win.  She might claim that the money was supposed to be a gift, that she has already repaid you, that you caused the dental damage in the first place and so were responsible for payment, or some other defense, but you absolutely can sue....

Anyone can ASK anyone else to do anything.  If the other party refuses, regardless of whether that refusal is justified, there will be a legal battle.  As for who would win that legal battle, it is impossible to predict without knowing a lot more facts, especially how title is held, and if you ever had any agreement about ownership.  If you are the only title holder and had no agreement that he would co-own the house, I think it most likely (again, there may be many relevant circumstances of which I am unaware) that you would be granted sole possession of the house, but would have to repay him for his contributions to its value....
