PDH Provides Information in These Areas of Law
A contract is a promise enforceable by law. A legally binding contract requires the mutual assent of two or more persons, one of them makes the offer and another accepts the offer.
We enter into contracts every day, some times we are not even aware of it. For example when an individual goes into a store to buy their groceries, they enter into a contract with the store agreeing to pay for the groceries they are getting.
PDH can provide access to the information that is needed to create contracts between parties such as Landlord and Tenants, Employee and Employer, and many others.
Most debt collection cases arise from the failure to pay what is owing on a contract for goods or services or for a loan of money, where the debt is based on a promise to pay.
When the debt on credit cards, a line of credit, or any other loans is not paid that debt can be sold to a collection agency.
It is important to understand what the collection agency can and cannot do to collect the money.
When you are not sure how to deal with collection agencies let PDH help you find the answers.
