Adverse possession is a civil legal concept. In Maryland, it is an inchoate claim that must be brought in court. Once all elements are proven, a court may grant possession and authorize recording of an instrument that includes the possessed property.
I have been told I need to put a deed restriction on requiring the new owner to maintain the system. Wont this have a negative effect on selling my property? Do you know of other alternatives? This seems very unfair to me.
The posed questions fails to state who is imposing the restriction. It also fails to state whether the system is being installed on property not owned the the poser of this question. If the question were rephrased, perhaps a better response could be given.
Hi, I live in Washington State and I am formalizing a small business LLC from my home. The main purpose of my LLC is to purchase real estate property in Texas (residential homes), and put them up for rental. I will utilize a Texas based real estate company to purchase the home(s), and utilize a... Read more »
Yes - a foreign entity doing business in Texas needs to be registered with the Texas Secretary of State. However, an entity that is created for the sole purpose of owning real estate may not need to be registered in TX even though the property is located in TX. While the entity that conducts the...Read more »

If a neighboring property deed from 1908 has reference to bearings in an original survey in 1863, should any surveys performed thereafter be performed using the magnetic north declination in that same year? If a new survey was performed in 2011 using 1983 bearings and caused a defect in my new... Read more »
Declination is always a problem that is rarely addressed until a surveyor gets cross examined. Apparently it is the adjoining property's calls with the 1863 bearings, not yours. You and your predecessors have probably acquiesced to a ascertainable boundary over the years, and you probably...Read more »
The guests smoke marijuana, even though they have a no smoking rule that the owner doesn't enforce, resident/son is rarely onsite to monitor, I have high risk, serious asthma and respiratory complications. They are just ignoring the problem or saying they know nothing about and say it must be... Read more »
Your question is unclear. If there is only one tract, then apparently the alleged owner is actually only a tenant in common and the Probate will need to be closed prior to sale. If more than one tract, then the alleged owner may be able to convey the tract he owns. The Probate may only be...Read more »
this rock was part of some kind of thing that was built on the ground to make a platform. I did not build this it was already built. Can i file under the homeowners insurance policy because i was badly injured?
Can a company do that legally? I noticed that I have been paying for years and I noticed that the balance owed on the house was not going down. After the interest was paid they doubled my note, I am about to lose the house because I can't afford the payment of $1586.29.
It sounds like you and the lender agreed to a modification that would allow you to pay interest only for a period of time, and now that the period is over, they want you to make up the payments, which is why the monthly payment is increased.
It's not at all clear what you originally...Read more »
I checked with the county records and there is definitely no HAO for my property. These people got together and just decided it's within their rights to create one. What can I do so I don't end up with issues when I go to sell?
If there is no written agreement and no legal marriage then you are in a difficult position. You may have an "equitable" remedy but it could be hard to prove. You should speak to a local real estate attorney who handles litigation to get more specific advice.
The law’s view of condo governance is that the condo documents control, except where they don’t. There is no statute on BBQ on the balcony unless it violates fire code, but the condo association MIGHT be able to regulate it… if they did it correctly… which they often don’t.
We got a 90 day notice to leave because they sold the property . But no papers were added showing proof of it being sold ...I lease ended in march ..they never renewed it but we have till this day payed rent every month...what should we do...there is nothing open for rent here
Much depends upon the exact details - what the 90 day notice said; what, if any, other papers were served; what, if anything, was said about relocation assistance; etc. You are correct that the seller/landlord is obligated to show you a copy of the offer that he accepted, along with a declaration...Read more »
I bought the house from the ex-wife; the ex-husband apparently owned the two small barns on the small adjoining lot; with shared utilities from the house. I've been told by a realtor that the small lots cannot be separated from the main property in this way by the previous owner divorcees. I... Read more »
The law doesn’t “stand” anywhere. Your presumably discount purchase and closing resolves who owns what. Get a lawyer to read and interpret your deed and then look to the title insurance to defend your deed. If you have neither a recorded deed nor title insurance, your payment of taxes is...Read more »

You need to review your condo Decalstions, Bylaws, and Rules & Regulations and then evaluate whether there was compliance with those governing documents in creating whatever rule you are challenging. There may be local fire prevention laws, but the analysis starts at the condo governing...Read more »
When I insisted I want to see my actual unit prior to move in, the leasing agent indicated I can’t view the apartment until move in day. I was informed in writing that if the apartment doesn’t need my standards I have the option to decline to move in. But that option will place my family at... Read more »
I have a written lease with prior owner until March 2021. The new owners want me to stay but the HOA board is telling her she is in violation of the rule that prohibits rentals for 1 year after purchasing a unit.
