Part 14 California Residents: What the Transfer Company Can’t Make You Do
The Transfer Company Can’t Ignore Any of These Instructions, Nor Can YOU.
- 10138(b) “The provisions in this section may not be waived by agreement of the parties.”
This is the last article of our series, “California Residents: What the Transfer Company Can’t Make You Do”. In the last twelve articles, we’ve outlined the following provisions that are NOT allowed in the transfer agreement or related documents:
- a provision that waives your right to sue
- a provision that indemnify, holds harmless and defends the transfer company
- a provision that waives your benefits to wage garnishments
- a provision that makes the Agreement confidential or “owned” by the transfer company
- a provision that makes you agree to do a confession of judgment
- a provision that makes you pay for the transfer company’s attorney fees and costs if the transfer is not completed
- a provision that makes you pay for the transfer company’s tax liability
- a provision that makes you pay for additional brokerage fees for the transfer company
- a provision that takes your Hearing out of the state of California
- a provision that orders a different “choice-of-law” even though your from California, but the situation was not in California and other parties are not from California
- a provision that provides for a security interest that exceeds the transfer amount
- a provision that makes you do business with that particular transfer company in the future if you want to sell future payments
- 10138(b) simply states that none of these rules can be ignored or waived by the transfer company or you.
