From your limited facts, I don't see why not. If she's solely on the deed, she could convey it. If there's a pending divorce, the situation would be different. Consult local counsel to address any concerns you may have.
My tenant signed a lease until January 14, 2023, but she moved out on December 31, 2022. She paid first and last month's rent, plus a security deposit when she moved in. Is she entitled to any money back since she didn't live there in January?
My siblings and I inherited riverfront property which I don't use. My siblings, who along with their kids use the property, won't buy me out. I don't want my kids to inherit the 'problem' and am looking for a way to solve the situation. Can I trigger a market sell? Or some other action?
She lives in her parents basement with her now boyfriend and her parents won't let me see her either. I did nothing to her or her parents for this to happen. Her boyfriend has brain washed her. Whats my rights
We are filing a no-contest divorce and he is supposed to obtain the house and split the equity with me, but the documents only say he will refinance and I will sign a quitclaim deed. Does the paperwork need to specify that he will give me these monies and at what percent or is that implied given it... View More
Based on the reply I received, I need to add more details. There is no clause in the 2-year lease that says the lease is voided if the property is sold. The new owners are buying the house as an investment with full understanding and agreement as part of the purchase that there is a current tenant... View More
Their was a Warrant deed in place to my father in law and it is now our Tract 2 on our deed. The county’s tax accessor graph picture was wrong and he used that picture to have a deed made and for the 1st time called it an easement. The property he bought did belong to an uncle that passed away.... View More
The best way to determine where boundary lines are is to use a proper survey - not a tax map online. If his deed shows encroachment, even if an easement, then you run the risk of a future adverse possession claim. Consult an attorney to review the deeds to determine your options. You may need to...View More
My wife and I were in the process of divorcing when she passed away last week. She lived in Illinois, I live in Tennessee. We had been separated for nearly 25 years. I initiated the divorce. We have no property to divide, nor did she have power of attorney or a will to my knowledge. She had no... View More
You should discuss all this with your attorney. But if she passed during the divorce proceeding, then there's no more divorce. Depending on her estate, you may and likely are entitled to some, if not all, of her assets. The issue would need to go to probate in Illinois since that's where...View More
More facts would be needed. If they had an arrest warrant for someone and were otherwise let into the house then there's probably not an issue. Plus there are many exceptions to the warrant requirement regarding searches, seizures, etc. Consult counsel to determine whether any rights were violated.
To my stomach.. I listened to him and let him coerce me about the marriage. He retired and said we had to get married by may 31 on may 25 or I wouldn’t be able to be on ins. He’s looked at my private texts while I slept on the way home from... View More
I was mailed a Civil Summons to appear in Tennessee in a few months, which is about 1800 miles from where I live now. Is mailing even a legitimate form of serving, and what were to happen if I can't/don't make it to my Civil Summons?
Regular mail for a summons is not valid. It needs to be certified where the post office will deliver it and make you sign for it. If you fail to appear the court may grant a judgment of default, even if it is bad service. Hire local counsel to review the summons and help you make a determination...View More
