So in essence they sold you something they didn't own ....
Under what authority would YOU have to apply for a lost title? That sounds like something the HEIRS of the previous owner could do, and if the park took an assignment from those heirs something IT might be able to do, but the...Read more »
Yes, but you don’t ‘obtain’ it, you file it with the state’s corporation bureau.
The form is pretty self explanatory, but if you’re going to be renting property in Michigan it makes sense to hire and retain a lawyer in the area of that property to insure you comply with...Read more »
I'm sorry to hear of your loss. Your wife's ESTATE is responsible for the medical bills she incurred, but unless you've signed something that would say otherwise YOU are not. This has several different ways it could play out, but you'd be well advised to seek the advice of a...Read more »
Wisconsin is a 'community property' state so it would be best if you got advice from a Wisconsin lawyer to be sure of ALL the ramifications, however, in MOST states owning as 'husband and wife' implies a survivorship interest that does not require probate.
I just did a search online and found that I'm listed as a resident at an address in Michigan. But - here's the fly in the ointment - I've never lived in Michigan. I've never even lived in the USA (I was born in and have been a citizen/resident of another country for my entire... Read more »
Your facts don't lead to an answer to your question. The question "Can I challenge the will" doesn't hinge on whether or not your brother died before you or if he left his estate to someone else in a will.
Challenging a will is only proper for very specific reasons like...Read more »
My father suffered a major heart attack on March 16 and passed. No will. Nothing discussed. There are 6 of us children. We all agreed, that everything should go to my mother. Is there an easier way, other than probate. He had no major creditors
There is much mis-information about probate, but while the 'easier' ship sailed when your father passed without planning (a Will alone would not have helped...) the process of probate need not be 'difficult'.
Please consult with a local estate planning and probate...Read more »
Mom has manufactured home in a park owes about 8,000 on it and the value is about 45,000. The car is worth just about what she owes 19,000 with no co-signer. Her bank account is joint with one of my siblings. She has no other debt. From what we have read there would be no probate. We can... Read more »
This forum is not an appropriate one to get legal advice but is meant to answer general legal questions.

He actually changed the will about a month ago. My mother insisted on separate trust because she does not trust him to do the right thing. Could you please tell me how he legally did this. Thank you for your help in this matter.
It is unclear what you are asking, but I gather you are talking about a certificate of affixture of a mobile home? There is a state approved form that should be filed with the register of deeds, and it should have been recorded either before or at the time you bought the land. Did you get the...Read more »
The person who died without a will, so I was told, was the mother and guardian of one of a sibling. The other sibling is now the guardian and wants to continue renting the deceased property to the first. Isn't that dealing to themselves?
There is nothing that 'jumps up and down' and screams this is inappropriate in the facts you present, BUT the individual needs to have some authority to do this, be that as a court appointed Personal Representative or as the new owner under some other mechanism like a Ladybird or Quit...Read more »
This depends on how the occupancy arrangements are defined. GENERALLY speaking the life tenant is responsible for the current expenses like utilities, taxes and insurance but PRINCIPAL improvements are not required. A new roof could be seen as increasing the value rather than merely maintaining it...Read more »
