I was paying my car insurance thinking it would take around $200 for my car but it took around $400 because my agent added my son and daughter to my insurance without informing me first so now I have $-200 in my account
My daughter is looking to rent a house in FL. During a chat with the person, the story changed a little. He indicated that the security deposit was going to be held by his attorney, then changed his mind when pressed for the attorney name. He has now provided a number and a name of a person...

I have experience with similar transactions but for luxury time shares.
While Zillow is a legitimate website, you may want to hire a lawyer to vet this particular transaction for its legitimacy. Sometimes, scam artists are pretty sophisticated using real business names and real people...Read more »
It is unusual to be financially responsible for the property and have no equitable interest in it. But sounds like that's what you've got. Usually, during divorce, the husband receiving the property would also be required to refi...Read more »
To start, you'd need to be more protective and discrete about your business ideas without disseminating them on the internet. And if you believe in your idea, you'd need to include legal costs as part of your start-up costs.

Last month it's discovered that the easements require a 100' setback, not the 50' that shows up on the survey we were given by the seller which makes it impossible to build anything without a variance. Got the meeting for that, all is well, hearing set for mid Sep. Friday my... Read more »

We had a virtual walkthrough on Tuesday, and they sent an inspector to view the outside of the house yesterday, sending their offer last night via email. I'm skeptical, as I feel the offer was a good one. I have signed nothing, and accepted nothing so far. What are my caveats?

My mother inherited a paid off home in Florida that she now rents out. She added me to the deed several years ago, but I just found out tonight that she doesn’t have insurance on the house (which is not required if the house is paid off, but doesn’t make any sense to me to be uninsured). I am... Read more »
