I concur your best results will be with a local real estate attorney in your corner.
But be prepared to provide that lawyer with facts like a copy of the judgment, who 'they' are and why YOU can't just install the culvert and charge them the cost (I assume because they did...Read more »
I am on question 9. It states " I nominate _____ as personal representative, who is qualified and has the following priority for appointment _____. I am a only child and this news for my mom's estate. Do I just put then I am the only child
The 'priority' for appointment is based on the Michigan Probate statute. If there is a will, the person named in the will has priority. If there is no will a surviving spouse does. If there is no surviving spouse all surviving children have equal priority.
A man passed in Michigan where he and his wife were living at that time. He and his wife own land in SC worth $4,000. Does the land automatically go to her without filing probate in MI? His entire estate was less than $20,000.
The wife is trying to sell the land in SC but this issue arose... Read more »
Mr Geers is exactly correct, and I would add, if you don't know what your damages are, they likely won't 'stand up' in Court. The FIRST thing you need to think about when litigation is possible is 'what are my damages and how much might I expect to recover?'...Read more »

There are significant differences between land contracts and mortgages and before you do anything I’d confirm directly with the habitat attorney they won’t help if someone has equitable title instead of legal title and then consult with your own attorney before you do anything.
My girlfriend wants her name off the mortgage that we both share. She wants me to refinance and pay her half of equity that's in the house. If I can't afford to pay her half of equity can she force me to sell the home? I have already been approved to take over the mortgage loan by myself.... Read more »
This is essentially a 'divorce' and you need to approach it that way. PLEASE seek local legal representation so you can both get the answer to 'what can she do' (as Mr Harris has pointed out the answer will be different depending on how you own the house!) and what YOU should do...Read more »
Mr Morris is right, and further without seeing the actual contract it is unclear if you even have the ability to sue ... many contracts contain mandatory arbitration clauses which might preclude a lawsuit. It may also be more expensive to arbitrate or sue than you're out at this point so any...Read more »

I was scammed on a house I was paying someone who acted as the landlord later I found out it's the banks house so they came after me for the rent I already payed an have been taking it from me through taxes for years
Without seeing the judgment and any other documents like the garnishment orders etc., it is impossible to provide you any real legal guidance. Did you have an attorney? THAT is the first place you should turn to have this explained.
If not, you need to find a LOCAL (to the area where the...Read more »
