There was NO WAY my grandma was coherent to grant that. Then the day she died, I believe he went to the bank and cashed her 2cds from 1950 and emptied her checking and savings account out. The following day after he did that he told me I could have whatever I wanted out of the house. When I got... Read more »
If you're grandmother was incompetent when she signed the POA, then it wouldn't be valid. Proving that could be tough and expensive. However, the cost of the litigation, if you have a valid basis for bringing it, might be payable by your grandmother's estate.
We had a contractor help install sump pumps to divert rain water to the sidewalk to prevent potential house flooding a few months ago. In the contract, he mentioned the sump pump would be covered with a 10 year warranty. When the sump pumps stopped working a few months after the install, we reached... Read more »

This happened in Jersey City. I got a ticket for $ 110 for parking in a reserved space but there was no clear indication of reserved lots by way of sign board. There were 4 signboards (for reserved parking) for an entire row of approx 10 parking lots and the floor was not marked, no... Read more »
While you may have a case, the cost of the lawyer would certainly be much more than the ticket.
You could try proceeding on your own, but your time has value too. You may or may not be able to convince a judge. You need to weigh this in deciding whether to fight it or not. My feeling...Read more »
Gift tax is only paid on gifts made while the donor was alive. In this case, it sounds like you inherited it. There is an inheritance tax in New Jersey. The rate for class D beneficiaries (a niece or nephew falls into this class) pays a 15% tax. In addition, the estate may be liable for the NJ...Read more »
I have been spending SO MUCH on hotels versus enjoying my home. My kids have been sick and I just feel stuck in this far from what I call a home. Between rats, carpet beetles, flees, birds, and bird mites to say the least. I have reached out to EVERYONE involved in this purchasing process and all I... Read more »
Just contact the company. They will send you the correct forms to fill out. You will likely need to fill out an affidavit of residence and provide the death certificate and letters of administration. You will also likely need to have some of the forms authenticated with a "medallion...Read more »
I’ve been renting a condo in receivership for the last 2 years. My lease ends on 12/31/17. I have not received the lease renewal or any other notice. My rent is all paid. This past year I have been late with the rent however no notices or eviction letters were given. The property manager accepted... Read more »
Generally, unless you reside in an owner occupied building, you can only be evicted for one of the causes listed in the anti eviction act. Habitual late payment of rent is one of those causes. However, it appears that this is no longer an issue.
1. We accepted offer $15k less than asking if buyers would accept house “as is”.
2. Buyers were given copy of previous home inspection b4 signing “as is” contract. That inspection report stated it was recommended to replace electric box. Buyers signed with $5k deposit the... Read more »
Without looking at the contract, specifically any inspection provisions, it's hard to say. Often, when someone writes in "house being sold as is", they do not amend the inspection clauses. Therefore, a conflict between your intent and the actual written contract exists. You should...Read more »
I went into court because I was behind only a $100 for that month plus all the lawyer and court fees which brought it up to $500. I said that I will make a payment arrangement they refused and said that I was getting a letter of removal. They filed with the clerk and I was not able to or did I... Read more »
