Charter Bank Case

Superior Essays
Register to read the introduction… Holly Hill issued a promissory note for the mortgage to Rogers and Blythe, a couple of months later Rogers and Blythe took out a loan from Charter Bank of Gainesville. In order for Rogers and Blythe to secure the loan they took out from Charter Bank they had to transfer the promissory note they had created with Holly Hill. Sometime later Rogers and Blythe defaulted on the loan. Charter Bank sued in order to recover on the Holly Hill’s promissory note.
From that information the mortgage in the note is nonnegotiable. Some of the reasons why Charter Bank doesn’t have a negotiable contract are because of the initial contract from Holly Hill to Rogers and Blythe was a conditional promise to pay. Upon Rogers and Blythe transferring the rights to Charter Bank promise became unconditional and isn’t negotiable because of the risk with Holly Hill not paying full or at all would fall on Rogers and Blythe who held the contract originally. Another reason is that Charter Bank isn’t the right enforcer of the promissory note and cannot force Holly Hill from not making the payment. Also the promissory note doesn’t have Charter Bank as the ones to pay as the party which will also make the promissory note

Answer:
When Anthony and Dolores Angelini entered into a contract with Lustro Aluminum Products Inc. they had signed a promissory note with a security of $5,363.40. The key point in the note’s language stated that the promissory note wouldn’t mature for 60 days after the certificate of completion was signed.
Lustro, assigned General Investment Corporation after 10 days for consideration of the promissory note. The job was never completed at the Angelini’s home by Lustro, which meant that the note had never become due, nor can a certificate of completion be issued or any legal certificate for that matter. General isn’t able to collect from the Angelini’s because the work was never completed and General isn’t considered a holder of the note. Therefore the Angelini’s would win the case.

The Mahaffey’s signed a promissory note with Mortgage Finance Corporation. After the job was completed, Five Star failed to complete certain parts of the agreement; because of the defects the Mahaffey’s refused to make the payments due on the note. Mortgage finance instituted foreclosure proceedings to collect the money owed.

The Federal Trade Commission rule can possibly protect the Mahaffey’s because the rule prevents separating the consumer’s duty to pay the credit and the seller’s duty to perform. However, the Mahaffey’s have to pay the note regardless and shouldn’t stop paying it. Five Star would be held liable for the repairs and completion of the job. The Mahaffey’s can also raise the defense that there was a breach of contract with Five Star and seek to recover any damages; at this point Mortgage Finance would be able to also seek to recover any financial losses as well as Five Star.

    As a law student that NBC has no valid case against Ms. Seashell in pursuit of the $200,000.00, given that she did not sign the charge to give the Bank legal hold over the property, thereby relinquishing the NBC's power of sale. The Contract is also not binding under the Contract Law of Capacity to make contract, as Ms. Seashell is mentally unsound to enter into a legally binding contract. There was also undertones of undue influence by her then husband making the contract invalid under contract law section 12.12 undue influence. However I would advise the Bank to pursue charges against the solicitor Mr. Sharkface for negligence and the resulting damages under the laws of fiduciary duty. The bank is also entitled to the promissory note of $100,000.00 signed by the couple under the law of bill of exchange & negotiable instrument.…

    The investor would have to prove that they relied on the information but they don’t have to prove that it was the defendants fault. The defense for this would be good faith (acting without scienter)that I had no knowledge that the statement was false or misleading.

    $3,500 is not the full amount of the installation because she had defaulted on paying Hilton the remaining balance of $902. The case was heard by magistrate that didn’t include a jury and because Pittsley didn’t provide evidence of damages so the only awarded her $250 with an additional $150 but also, they rewarded Hilton with the remain balance of $902. Pittsley appealed with the argument that UCC applies because she entered the contract with the sole purpose of obtaining carpet that was of good quality. On the other hand, it’s hard to tell if the contract is actually governed by the UCC because it contains both a good and a service which is the carpet and installation. The final ruling of the court the initial ruling was vacated because the magistrate didn’t consider the UCC when they made their…

    Avoid Debt In The Bible

    Debt Most do not consider the Bible to be the applicable source and it is overlooked for its useful information. On the topic of accounting and debt the Bible makes it clear that we should avoid debt, “The rich rule over the poor, and the borrower is slave to the lender.” (Proverbs 22:7 NIV) In our previous accounting course we learned that when taking out a loan, or borrowing money, you have to repay that principle plus whatever interest has occurred based on the rate applied. While it may seem like a quick fix when in need of funding you are a slave to your lender until your debt is paid off whether you have the money or not. With a high debt-to-equity ratio your company will appear to be risky (Wild & Shaw 2010 p525). The Bible also heeds…

    The issue at hand here, is that the key tenants are leaving, and this was not made known to William Byrd and his partners before the contract was signed. Ultimately, this resulted in the judge deeming Putnam Construction & Realty Co.’s conduct fraudulent. The reason being, once these major tenants left, the USBC no longer possesses the profit potential Byrd and the partners bargained for. More importantly, the requirements of restitution state, “that it commonly remedies parties that suffer from fraud, misrepresentation, mistake and duress”(Beatty & Samuelson,2015, p. 414).This tells us that based upon the definition alone that the buyers should at least be made whole. In other words, they should be entitled to at least…

    David did not convey to Lisa that he knew there would be a stationery store opening very soon can be seen as an example of silence as misrepresentation since there is a partial non-disclosure fact. But the most important thing is this case cannot fulfill all four legal elements of misrepresentation. It fulfilled two legal elements only, they are a statement of fact by conduct which is false since David did not convey the true to Lisa, also for made by one contracting party to the other before the contract is made since the contract is made on July and this event is happened in April. But this case cannot fulfil the other two legal elements of misrepresentation and it can be proved by the difference between these two cases. First, there are no inducement in this case, Lisa knows the fact that a new stationery store would be opening soon in May, which is before the contract is made but she still made the contract with David in July, while the plaintiff of Dorku Ltd. v Green Park Properties Ltd. (2002) did not know the fact that the yard was not included in the property before the contract is made.…
