She's not on any bills or the rental agreement however we have lived together for a year now. She refused to move continues to tell me to "evict her" do I have to go through an official eviction processor is there another way?
If she is holding over after a 'legal' lease (whether or not her name is on anything the facts you present make her a 'legal' tenant on a month to month basis at the very least) you DO need to go through an eviction process if she refuses to move out voluntarily.

The building code sets forth the minimum standard for construction. There must be something in the engineering report that causes their concern. A stamped report from structural engineer should be enough.
When I bought the house in 2000 I closed had a title company paid for title insurance and the owner either committed fraud or just try to get over. The person I bought the house from has adjoining land ,that he said was the easement and I have being using it every since. But I just tried to... Read more »
An experienced real estate attorney will have to see your purchase documents, the title work and the title abstract at the time you purchased the home. These type of cases take time to develop and unwind. To use the term "fraud" is to imply that the seller had a 'willful and knowing...Read more »
Without looking at the actual documents, I'm speculating, but you probably can't stop it. And yes, they most likely do have full rights to use the easement and build a house. That is the POINT of the easement.
You BOUGHT the land with the easement in place, and should have...Read more »
Wife and I are living in our daughters and son in laws basement in Gainesville, GA. Son in law has taken a new job in Michigan. Daughter, wife, and I are planning to follow him as soon as Gainesville house is sold. Many of the Michigan houses we’ve looked at online have a basement that a) has or... Read more »
I moved my family into a new house in Quincy, Michigan. A day after moving in, our water stops working. It turns out the well is dry, and the whole area is just bad for water. We spoke with multiple well contractors and learned that we can install a good well about 100 yards from the house at the... Read more »
Without seeing the closing paperwork and disclosures it is hard to say for sure. You need to have a local attorney look at the paperwork (did you use an attorney to review the closing? You SHOULD have!) to determine if anything like this can survive the closing.
I expect that the lease provides the landlord with the authority to maintain the property. If the lease does not permit you to post a sign on the property, I expect that the lease would permit the landlord to enforce the lease by removing a sign. Without reviewing the lease, I cannot determine...Read more »

She has stated that she has sold this property with out another signature on it and has filed a eviction notice well the gentle man that she sold it to is evicting us. We also have signed paperwork from his mother stating that we have all rights to... Read more »
It depends on what the trust document says about the house. Does it specifically say that the house is not to be sold? Ordinarily, your mother-in-law would be the trustee - and if she is the sole trustee, she would have the right to sell the house, and the new owner would be allowed to evict you....Read more »
he decided to sell said property to my half brother no taxes have been paid I don't even think my father has the title I have lived in my uncles house with my wife for 3 months anyway I can fight this and stay and own my uncles property
If your father had title and made a completed gift to you, then you owned the property and your father cannot take it back. However, was there any paper work; any deed signed by your father? You have raised a lot of issues with your question. As a matter of law, you may own the property, but you...Read more »
I was watching the sunset, with my friend, in my school parking lot days after school had ended. A man who we assume lives next to the school approached us and started threatening to call the cops saying we looked suspicious. We were simply sitting in the back of her car watching the sunset. Would... Read more »
The police might have just told you to move along. Of course, a lot depends on what information they have at the time, including what the person who calls tells them, as well as whether there have been other reports of suspicious activity or crime in the area.
Townline Lake, Belvidere Township, Lakeview MI. The lakeshore in Belvidere township has been public use since the 20s. A few lake front property owners went to a judge and got granted riparian rights up to the lakeshore even though it’s public property and is recorded as a park in the plat. How... Read more »
I planted them in the alley, it has since been condemned and the trees are now on the half that my neighbor gained by less than 2 feet. I have offered to buy the land and he refuses. Is there a way I can legally remove the trees? Or anything at all?
A tree, once planted, becomes part of the land. It belongs to the landowner. That’s the simple answer, but there are possible exceptions. For example, rights to timber can be owned separately. I think that your neighbor owns the trees.
We own a house with a neighbor who we share a driveway with. We also have woods behind us. The property line is a little uneven, but splits the property in half for the most part. Unfortunately, part of the neighbors property is the edge of the start of our driveway. In our deed, when we bought the... Read more »
Is there a private road agreement between you? Usually when homeowners share a driveway there is a private road agreement. You may have pull a title abstract to verify this. This will determine the parties rights, BEFORE you have to go to court without any legal guidance.
I bought 37 acres - in March 2020 -made up of 4 parcels. 2 of them have home sites/ platted subdivision. I do not plan on developing the land. I want to dissolve the plat and have it combined as 1 37 acre parcel
The way you've worded this is a bit confusing to me. There is a FORMAL platted 'subdivision' of 37 acres with 4 lots? That doesn't sound right. It sounds more like it was simply a 'lot split'. If the later is the case, you can simply ask the municipality and taxing...Read more »
A platted subdivison, in the form of a Summer Resort containing 10 lots, created a right-of-way "foot path" easement. The Summer Resort sold each lot and the Summer Resort no longer exists. Therefore, does the foot path still exist despite there not being a Summer Resort?
Because all the lots have been sold doesn't mean the "Summer Resort" no longer exists. If there was an easement reserved the dominant tenant (people who have the right to use the easement) likely still has that right. No matter what other access may exist. However, there is no...Read more »

Quieting a claim to title is a legal action and challenge that needs to be answered with solid supporting documentation. You should have a real estate attorney review your title work, deeds and related surveys. Your issue with your neighbor would need to be adjudicated by a court. The...Read more »
You would need to distinguish between impermissible land use (i.e. the scrap yard being located there against zoning rules) and operating illegally (i.e. being cited for violations). You as an adjacent landowner would likely not have a claim for illegally operating.
I purchased my home back in March this year and I wish to put up an additional garage/pole barn (following all local permit rules). Some of the neighbors have mentioned that this cul-de-sac was a part of a HOA years ago. This was never disclosed to me and I was never given any information during... Read more »
