I got a letter asking me to sign and have notarized a “Receipt, Release and Waiver” saying I received distribution from my mom’s estate. If I’m reading the legalese correctly, it also releases the executor from any liability. The letter instructs me to send this to the lawyer’s office to... Read more »
My elderly father signed a contract that had no closing date. His lawyer did not tell him either. He signed the contract then instructed the lawyer to NOT send it to the buyer yet. He did so both verbally and through text. Is there any legal recourse? Is the contract valid if the lawyer went... Read more »
My brother is a friend of the CFP but has no legal authority for my estate - living trust. The CFP is in Georgia. I think he breached client confindentiality at the very least and likely violated a code of ethics. What recourse do I have? Is there a Board where I can lodge a complaint? Thank... Read more »

You are getting bad information. If you are administrator, you are entitled to information. If a foreclosure has not started you have time. However, you will have to reinstate the mortgage by paying all arrears to avoid foreclosure. The bank will not take partial payment. Hire a lawyer to deal...Read more »

I have not seen the Will but according to court documents, the property was named the Mourhess Family Trust and my brother was named as the Trustee. Before my mother died (she was in ill health) she sold both properties to my brother for $1 total, without me knowing about it. After she died, my... Read more »

Yes and no on the ownership. If you write to them and tell them to stop, that cuts off any ownership issues. You can legalize the driveway through your land by doing what it called an easement. It is a recorded document, like a deed, that states that the driveway is for access but subject to...Read more »
He emptied her bank account. Paid taxes late making fines, harassed beneficiaries, no record of accounting may 2021 house sold 1/3 value he never has assessor come in., what can husband and daughter do now ?
Based on your post, you are clearly confused about the case. An executor is in a will by definition. Thus, the statement there is "no will" and the brother is "executor" is legally inconsistent. I am not sure what happened here by your post. Is an "assessor" an...Read more »
The deed reads the husbands name and wife’s name and wife’s daughters name as the owners. What does ux mean in terms of wife’s ownership. The Deed doesn’t have ux in it. I was asking because I ran in to the term. On the deed/ mortgage itself says John Doe and Jane doe and Mary doe.
"UX" is an old style abbreviation in Latin for "husband and wife". I would need to see the deed, but it sounds like it is 50% the parents, and 50% the daughter. The parents have survivorship rights between them, but as to the daughter it is tenants in common.
