The 'hard time' is not surprising since you don't own the house you're trying to 'refinance'. Yes, you need to reopen the probate in order to have authority to record a deed from the estate to the heirs.
Whether or not YOU have a will is not relevant, and this all leads me to an ultimate...Read more »
As to whether or not that is a good idea, well, that is a far more complicated question. PLEASE don't try to make this decision without a licensed professional helping, as there will likely be issues you're not thinking of that will matter.
Daughter shows up after 11 yrs, sells home, was POA, and puts me in a HOME! House appraised at $55.000 but conntract states $30,000. Other $25,000 got as unreported CASH which I never saw ANY of money. And didn't need put in a home! Finally moved me to a home in MI . I want back to Kersey and house... Read more »
You need to seek out local legal help not the TV news.
Acting under a Po A involves honoring the 'fiduciary duty' to act in the principal's best interest. It sounds like that may not have been what happened here, but without exploring facts that would not be appropriate in a public forum...Read more »
My landlord sold the house we are currently residing in while we still have 6 and a half montns left on our 2 year lease. He called me about 15 days ago stating that he sold the house and was waiting to see if the people were going to be approved. He called back about 3 days later stating they were... Read more »
If you have a lease that has not yet expired, and are current with rent, haven't violated any terms of the lease, etc. then no -- you can't be 'evicted'. You will note a lot of 'caveats' there -- the only way to be sure is to get local legal help.
On the OTHER hand, even if there are issues...Read more »
My dad passed first, then my aunt a few years later. They never transfered the deed after probate and neither had a will. She had no children or spouse. My dad was divorced with 4 children. We are at a loss as to how to deed the house in one or all of our names. We are in Indiana.
This is likely a 'multistep' process -- was Grandmother's estate probated? But the deed was never given during the probate? You will need to reopen the estate and get the deed from Grandmother's name to the appropriate parties. Likely that deed will need to be 'tenants in common' which means that...Read more »
My husband and i purchased a home together recently right before we were married. We have a mortgage on this home. Because I paid the down payment on the home, it is listed on the deed as me owning 60 % and husband owning 40%. I have 3 adult children and he has 2. All of theses adult children are... Read more »
ANY document can be challenged, and most (save an irrevocable trust) can be changed.
The actual planning, particularly when there is a mortgage, can be tricky. I would strongly urge you to consult with a local estate planning / real estate attorney to insure you do things in such a way to...Read more »
IF you sent them the correct form (it does not need to be sent certified mail by the way) and IF your lease allows for it, and IF they have not voluntarily moved out, then your next step is to file for eviction / damages.
The BEST way to do this is with the help of a local lawyer. It can...Read more »
All City taxes, water & sewage, and insurance have all been transferred over to the buyer. All that's left is the final payment and title delivery. Does any other important parties (notary, witness, attorneys) required to be present when signing the deed/title?
The process is not always the same, and depends much on what is being done. Is this the final payment on a land contract? A deed and property transfer affidavit are probably all that is needed. Was it a mortgage? Then you're talking something different. Some other sort of purchase agreement? What...Read more »
My father owns a water front lot next his sister in law, her lot has a house, my dad's is undeveloped, there are two trees which are leaning, she thinks they are going to fall and hit her house, my dad and several others that looked say they won't hit her house there are trees on her lot blocking...

Hard to say for sure without seeing ALL the facts, but the mere fact that a third party broke the law doesn't mean you can avoid a contract. Did YOU do something to encourage the break-in? Did you NEGLECT something basic that caused the problem? Did you KNOW of the risk and INTENTIONALLY do nothing...Read more »
We have not violated any of their rules and have been great renters. The management company has been avoiding us, hanging up on our calls, and threatening to file harassment but will not explain to us or show us in our lease how this is legal. Our lease states that no changes will be made unless in... Read more »
If the lease says there are no changes allowed except in writing agreed to by both parties, then you're pretty much covered. If it says this and then says 'but we can unilaterally make changes to x' the two parts of the lease are inconsistent.
Without seeing the WHOLE lease and the rules...Read more »
My dad left his home to three heirs and a devisee (I'm a heir/personal representative of the estate). One heir and the devisee got into a fight and the police had to be called. The police had the devisee leave the home. The next day, the devisee and her mother returned to the home and broke in,... Read more »
The detail is not relevant to the question, and no, because there was an altercation you can't change the terms of the will. You MAY be able to make a claim against the heir, and attach a portion of the inheritance to pay for that claim, but you need to do that properly and the BEST way to insure...Read more »
