Is there any legal recourse? The bank has been dishonest multiple times, I have by mail requested the application which they approved in my name (spelled incorrectly and wrong mothers maiden name etc) and they are refusing to send me the application. According to government websites they cannot... Read more »
The bank is right. If the card was canceled you have no damages. If you made a police report, then the police investigate the account, not you. The bank records are not yours, by your own allegation. You can sue and do a subpoena, but I am not sure what the suit would be claiming.
The short answer is no. But, there are tax issues in each state, and the matter will turn on the manner of payment. The most famous case on this involved the State of New Jersey against Lawrence Taylor the football player. The state sought to recover taxes for each game day in NJ based on his...Read more »

What I cannot understand from your post is whether you are on the mortgage or not. You could be named as a tenant, in which case you can ignore it. But if you are obligated on the mortgage debt, then you need to get involved.
He was told it would only take a year to take him out of contract. It was done as a favor for his cousin. It’s been more than 6 years and it’s affecting his credit because the mortgage is not always paid on time by his cousin. My husband does not live on the house or contribute in any kind. He...

Your friend is wrong. He is suggesting a "quitclaim" deed. That deed will screw up title, and make it harder for your kids to sell or refinance. Also, is it a gift or a real sale? The cheapest way is not always the best way. You can do it is a gift, but there might be tax issues. Again, it...Read more »

Land contracts are generally scams. To answer this question I would need to see the deed document. While other documents not recorded cannot bind third parties, you could still be bound if they sued you.
