OHIO CONSUMER SALES PRACTICES ACT (CSPA): violations by County

 Do you believe that our County Auditor, Board of Revisions, and the County Treasurer participated in violations of the Consumer Sales Practices Act????? 

SEE BELOW! 

 The Ohio Consumer Sales Practices Act (“CSPA”) is designed to protect consumers from unfair, deceptive and unconscionable acts or practices by suppliers.  R.C. 1345.02-1345.03.  To achieve this goal, the Ohio legislature broadly defines consumer transactions as “a sale, lease, assignment, award by chance, or other transfer of an item of goods, a service, franchise, or an intangible, to an individual for purposes that are primarily personal, family, or household, or solicitation to supply any of these things.”  R.C. 1345.01.[1]  Or, in the words of one notable Court, “it gives protection to consumers from “unscrupulous suppliers” in a more expedient and affordable manner than a tort or contract action under the common law.”  Walker v. Dominion Homes, Inc. (2005), 164 Ohio App.3d 385, 2005-Ohio-6055, quoting Eihnhorn v. Ford Motor Co. (1990), 48 Ohio St.3d 27, 29.  It is simply remedial legislation to be liberally interpreted in favor of the consumer. 

     The consequences of being found liable under the CSPA can be severe.  R.C. 1345.09.  Where an act is declared “deceptive or unconscionable” by the trier of fact, or to violate section 1345.02 and 1345.03 of the Ohio Revised Code, the consumer may elect to “to rescind the transaction or recover, but not in a class action, three times the amount of his actual damages, or two hundred dollars, which ever is greater, or recover other appropriate relief under Civil Rule 23, ***.

      Notwithstanding, the consumer bears the burden of demonstrating the alleged violation satisfies the criteria of R.C. 1345.09(B).  Consequently, a court may find a defendant committed an unconscionable act under the CSPA, but elect to deny treble damages.  Sinkfield v. Strong (1987), 34 Ohio Misc. 2d 19, 21.   

     A prevailing party may also be awarded reasonable attorneys’ fees if:

(1)  The consumer complaining of the act or practice that violated this chapter has brought or maintained an action that is groundless, and the consumer filed and maintained the action in bad faith;

(2)  The supplier has knowingly committed an act or practice that violates this chapter.

R.C. 1345.09(F)

     In order to meet the criteria for “knowingly” committing an act or practice in violation, the supplier need only to commit the act that violates the CSPA.  The supplier does not have to have the knowledge that the act violates the statute to allow for the granting of attorneys’ fees.  Einhorn, supra.

The answer is YES

Can I save my home after sheriff's sale? YES....

Once the sheriff's sale occurs, can I still save my property?

Yes. You may redeem your property after sheriff’s sale by paying in full all of the liens on the property and all of the costs of the case within eight days of the date of sale. The Magistrates Department has sample motions to redeem. To complete a redemption, a motion to redeem must be prepared, all of the lien holders must be contacted for payoff amounts, the Sheriff’s Department and the Clerk of Court must be contacted to determine the costs of the case, and a journal entry must be prepared ordering the redemption and ordering the distribution of the funds to the various parties. A sample of this order is available from the Magistrate’s Department. The amount of Sheriff’s costs may be obtained by calling 216-443-6037. Clerk’s costs may be obtained by calling 216-443-7979.

The purchaser must be paid interest on his or her deposit at the rate of 8% per annum the Clerk of Court must be paid poundage at the rate of 2% of the first $10,000.00 of the total redemption amount and at the rate of 1% for the remainder of the total redemption amount.

When the necessary information has been obtained and the necessary documents prepared, the documents must be filed with the Clerk of Courts and submitted to the magistrate assigned to your case. After the magistrate has approved the submitted documents, a certified check in the verified redemption amount must be submitted to the magistrate. Once the magistrate confirms that the check is for the proper amount, the judge will sign the order of redemption. After, the judge signs the redemption entry, the check and a certified copy of the entry must be taken to the Cashiers Window in the Clerk of Court’s office to complete the redemption.

As you may have determined from this brief summary of the redemption process, it is a very complicated procedure involving numerous calculations. You are strongly advised to seek the assistance of a lawyer for your redemption.

The redemption process may take longer than the eight days granted by law. While you do not have an absolute right to additional time to redeem, you may seek additional time to redeem by filing a motion to stay confirmation. Whether you are granted additional time to redeem is in the sole discretion of the judge assigned to the case.

If I am unable to save my house from foreclosure, when do I have to move out of my house?

As part of the decree of foreclosure, the purchaser at sheriff’s sale is awarded a “writ of possession”. This allows the purchaser to evict the former owners of the home without the need to file a separate eviction case. The purchaser must notify the Sheriff’s Department that he or she desires to have the previous owner evicted. At this point a representative of the Sheriff’s Department will notify the previous owners of the house in question of the date by which they must vacate the premises, usually within two weeks of the notification.

If there is money left over after a sheriff's sale, who is entitled to this money?

       Once the plaintiff and any other parties who have claimed a lien on the property have been paid out of the sheriff’s sale proceeds, the party who owned the property at the time of sheriff’s sale is entitled to any remaining funds. In order to receive these funds, the owner of the property at the time of sheriff’s sale must file a motion to distribute balance of funds with the Clerk of Court. A sample motion to distribute balance of funds can be obtained by visiting the Magistrates’ Department.
