What's my recourse?

I hired a marine contractor in Rhode Island to build a pair of centerboards for my boat ($12k). They were delivered 3 months late and didn't fit. I was very clear about the dimensions, yet the builder's designer altered the shape without consulting me. They've admitted fault in emails and in person, apologized, yet won't make the situation better. They offered a refund if I pay shipping charges to/from, customs and excise, and any damages. I don't feel I should pay $2k out of pocket and end up with nothing. What do I do to get justice? Report them to the Better Business Bureau? Hire a lawyer? Go to court or arbitration? Say mean things about them and buy a voodoo doll? Am I entitled to damages beyond the $12k? Any advice welcome.

Who knew accounting could be so dramatic?

I am so very aware of the robust good health of my credit score, thanks to having refinanced our mortgage in October. But last month, I was declined for a credit card. Turns out my former mortgage servicing company has wrongly reported late payments to the credit bureaus, and disputing this efficiently is slightly complicated, because my former mortgage servicing company is insane.

Should I look for a lawyer?

Fellow MeFi's, I am debating whether I should dispute the outcome of a marine insurance claim. Any input from someone that has dealt with insurance companies would be greatly appreciated. However, as I realise that my opinion on the matter is obviously biased, any independent assesment of the situation would also be very useful. [more inside]

eFax Ripped Me Off, Mastercard Won't Help

Efax notified me that they'd billed me hundreds of dollars to auto-renew my totally sucky membership. I called and asked to cancel, and they said no problem, they'd cancel me and refund my credit card. Then....nothing. Repeat. Same result. Seems to be the scam where they hope X% of customers don't notice refund hasn't gone through. So....I disupted charge with Mastercard. And they refuse to do anything. [more inside]

How to handle a goober for a landlord?

I've got eleven months to go on a lease, and a whole slew of problems with a new (to me) apartment, and a cheap, possibly negligent landlord. How do I remedy them? LOTS of details inside. But if you don't want to read the whole kit-and-caboodle inside here are the Cliff notes: (a) Landlord took more than weeks to fix the unusable bathroom sink; blamed the repairman. (b) Landlord expects me to find/select/transport the washer/dryer he’s obligated by lease to provide, and was missing on our move-in, and for less than $200. (c) Landlord flat-out refused to clean disgustingly smelly carpets we encountered on moving day (d) Landlord reneged on verbal agreement to replace crappy kitchen linoleum (e) Landlord made repeated, guilt-trippy and borderline abusive calls about first month's rent, and (bonus) (f) makes (super odd) references to lesbians.

Unreasonable/crazy landlord question -- I accepted a job in a new city, and he's being VERY difficult.

Here's my situation: I live in Washington, DC. I notified my landlord about a month ago that I was offered a job in another city, and would want to either assign my lease to someone new, or sublet. This is allowed with his consent. I have one roommate who wants to stay in the 2 bedroom condo we live in. We presented a prospective tenant to the landlord with a rental application, and now the landlord is accusing us of all sorts of things... [more inside]
