I don't do matrimonial law, but I don't understand how you could be "divorced" without a Judgment of Divorce and Decree that adjudicates the sale of the house. You should be enforcing your rights through the divorce decree. Go to the attorneys and start an action to enforce the agreement.

I am sorry your deal did not occur. Although it is difficult to tell from your post, it sounds as though you were the "buyer" of real property in New York. As your attorney likely told you, New York is a caveat emptor (buyer beware) state. That means, between you, your inspectors,...Read more »
In my view, the issue is not what the bank thinks, but whether there is a Certificate of Occupancy or other governmental approval for the bathroom "improvement." You should check with the building department of the local municipality to be sure that there are sufficient C/Os for the...Read more »

There are two layers to this question, the legal and the practical. From a legal perspective, I am unaware of any rule, regulation, or other law that prohibits your camera's view. From a practical point of view, do you really want to pick this fight with your neighbors? We all have to...Read more »

You are likely being asked to consent to probate of the will, or if no will, to the administration. If the will actually left everything to the step mom, and there are no grounds to contest the execution or validity of the will, then you likely will have no right to share in the proceeds of the...Read more »
