Family is searching for the latest Will. Nobody remembers the attorney's name to try to find her to get a copy of the Will. Can the lender call the loan due and/or foreclose on the house before the estate goes through probate? Can anyone else who lived in the house taking care of my... Read more »
My best response is that you have raised many important issues that require extensive responses which are beyond the scope of the platform. The best thing to do is retain the services of an attorney who is familiar both with real estate law and probate law.
In NJ, by law, the Landlord can only take a month and a half security deposit, must deposit the money into a tenant interest bearing trust account, and provide with name of bank, account number and bank address.

At one of the HOA meetings I attended (virtually) I asked if I could display the American Flag that had the thin blue and red line honoring firefighters and police officers (I have both of these heroes in my family) and one the members of the ARB barely let me finish my sentence before saying no...

This is a complicated question which requires an examination of the organic documents of the HOA as well as a review of the history of the HOA in permitting outside displays. Are front door or outdoor terrace railing displays permitted by the HOA? Are flags permitted to be displayed for Flag Day?

My father is 71, he visits PR every year and recently told me he wants to put his home under both our names. I do have siblings, but they never want to return to that area of PR. What should I do? He is still alive. We live in NJ, but he visits every summer to PR. I also have gone to PR since i was... Read more »
The answer to your question requires knowledge of PR law. Therefore, I wouldsuggest you retain a NJ attorney who is either admitted to the PR Bar orhsas working experience with PR law. In NJ a simple deed is all that would be required assuming clear title.
All the papers have been signed, only thing left to do is deposit and inspection. But now they are saying they received a better offer (all cash) and are going to get a lawyer back out of our agreement. But isn't it illegal to go into a new contract with a new buyer as a seller after you are... Read more »

I moved into an apartment knowing that the vinyl flooring was already discolored and worn out. Soon after, the flooring began expelling noxious fumes and black dots were appearing all over the floor. I bought two expensive electrostatic air purifiers towers to help me breath better at first, and... Read more »
If there is a written lease, review the lease to see what provisions are included in the lease concerning repairs. If there is no written lease, you have a valid argument that the floor repair is the landlord's responsibilty.
If there is a written lease, the obligation to repair should be governed by the terms of the lease. If no written lease, I believe since the flooring is part of the structure, the obligation to repair is on the landlord.
They are now threatening to auction off the property! What are my rights? What is NJ law under these circumstances? This all came about due to request for vacation in order to build new house up to property line. Don’t we own the lot along with neighbour due to abandonment?
I transfered the title of a condo I owned in NJ to an irrevocable trust. Upon notifying the Community Association of the transfer, they advised Closing Contribution fees are due to the Community Association and Membership fees are due the Section Association because of the transfer and they...

The right to charge Transfer Fees are provided for in the By Laws. The By Laws description of what is a transfer is controlling.

Sending the certified letter you suggested would not violate the “no contact” directive of the restraining order? He won’t pay for removal, I’m sure, so can My sister take him to small claims court without violating no contact directive?
I was unaware of the "No Contact" order. So file a complaint in small claims for cost of removal. You can fo this pro se. Go to www.NJCourts.gov. The Claims Division may decide not to hear the matter as the appropriate Court would be the one that issued the 'No Contact' order...Read more »
