Reminding the police there is a PPO in place might also help them tailor...Read more »

Setting aside statutes from 150 years ago (that are still enforceable today) for a moment. You could also think about it in practical terms, there is no "finders keepers" law. The concept, rather, if the true owner of the property either "lost or mislaid" the property, legal...Read more »
Adding to the other two layers above, it really depends on the bank. If another person owns a property, and only one tries to refinance and mortgage, it's not really conceivable that a bank would allow the mortgage without the other owners signature.
