I want out of my lease, I found someone who wants to take over the entire remaining term (11 months). My landlord is refusing to let them apply and offered them a different apartment. Lease says no subleasing or transferring but does say you can add roommates and modify yourself off the lease for a... Read more »
I'm attempting to refinance the mortgage on a jointly owned property and the party whose name is on the bank note and deed has left the state and I'm unable to locate them to have a quit claim signed. Is there a default process in place in the state of Michigan?
You would likely need to file a ‘quiet title’ action with the circuit court in the county where the land is located but that may or may not be possible and also may or may not be the only method available.
I’d urge you to bring all the facts and the documents (particularly the deed...Read more »
Without seeing the offer to purchase it is hard to know what you can do or even how to proceed for that matter. It sounds like you have already closed, but many of the conditions of an offer survive the closing if done properly and it is often your best avenue to proceed with.
I concur don't try to do this without a licensed attorney 'on board'. There are lots of title companies and even real estate agents who will try to sell you 'blank deeds' and tell you 'it is easy to fill in the blanks and avoid the legal expense'. What they don't tell you is that while it will cost...Read more »
The law is pretty specific that if the tenants do not provide a forwarding address within 4 days of moving out you are not required to provide them written documentation about the security deposit, but you SHOULD still go through the steps,

My father recently passed in August. He had a total of 5 children including myself. He left one of my sisters as his executor. I have received a copy of his will but I do not really understand it. It seems very broad just states everything he has is to be equally divided between the 5 of us. Well I... Read more »
Mr Harris is correct you have options, but BEFORE you decide what you do, it is critical to discuss this with a local estate planning and probate attorney to insure you're not causing more problems than you are solving. Petitioning for supervision can be expensive and add a great deal of time to...Read more »
I have a one year lease at the Michigan senior living apartment complex (Carrington Place - Farmington Hills) and plan to move to the same type of senior place in California. I believe there is a law for seniors that you can break a lease with no penalty but want to be certain. Thank you!
Probably not. MCL §554.601a, provides that tenants who have occupied their rental unit for more than 13 months may terminate the lease by a 60-day written notice if the tenant (age 62 or greater) has become eligible for subsidized senior citizen housing, or because the tenant is incapable of...Read more »
I movedout of the apartment in Lansing in Jan 2019 breaking the lease. As per lease agreement, I keep paying rent until the leasing office leased it to someone else. They leased to another rentee in Match 11 2019. I had paid rent of March and I was told over phone that if some one takes over the... Read more »
No -- your landlord has no 'connection' to Iowa, and the 'nexus' of the lawsuit -- if justified -- is in Lansing. Ingham County is where any lawsuit needs to be filed, but before you do that it is important to insure you've got a legal basis to do so. Did you provide all the written notices...Read more »

Will she have to continue to pay her monthly rent? She pays her utilities and water, also. She lives in a high area of properties that are selling at an astronomical price. Will she need proof of a deed that the house is in bankruptcy?
Houses don't go into bankruptcy. The 'short' answer from Mr Geers is correct as far as it goes, but your daughter needs to be taking steps NOW to protect herself, starting with getting a local real estate lawyer to provide real advice and at the same time, getting ready to move once her lease term...Read more »
My son passed away, there is no will and no estate other than this one account valued at $4000. He was not married and has no kids. I would like to close out the account that does not have any beneficiaries listed on and transfer the money to me to cover funeral costs.
That affidavit *may* work, but if the bank won't accept it you may be forced to do a 'small estate' Petition and Order. This is still pretty simple but would require Probate Court approval and copies of the paid funeral bill, etc.
Without seeing the terms of the offer it is hard to say what you can or should do. Possible remedies range from getting your deposit back and declaring the deal ‘dead’ to forcing the sale, or something in between.
You need to consult with a local attorney in the area where the house is...Read more »
He did a quit claim after the closing, but still at the title office. A new deed was transferred to both our names at that time.We received a notice from the county that his quit claim on the deed had been transferred and recorded to reflect both of our names. Recently, we have found... Read more »
There is no 'one way' to do this, although Mr Harris' suggestions are good places to start. You can also look at his recent tax returns as they should disclose investments and property you may not already know of. His girlfriend may also be of assistance.
