It is not a legal requirement. But if you want that outfit to loan you money, then you have to abide by their rules. You apparently are the fee simple owner, but they probably want the husband own the title, and most certainly the Deed of Trust, to expedite a potential Foreclosure due to...Read more »
This occurred in my office where I needed to restrain my brother who is not well mentally and has been going through a very difficult time over the last 3 years (divorce, loss of kids, loss of job, depression, recovering addict, self medicating, anger issues, etc..). I was worries about him... Read more »
Not sure of your question. But if the surviving grandparent died intestate, then you are probably one of the Heirs At Law. Hire a competent attorney to perform a title search, and possibly execute and record an Affidavit of Heirship. If you are an Heir, then either intercede in the proposed...Read more »
Usually the Note SOL is ten years from the last non-payment due date. But there may be some contract that modifies that, or the creditor may have got a Judgment on the Debt. If they sued upon the Note Deficiency, then they probably have until 2023 to collect, by levy, garnishment, etc.
We have been renting month to month for 10 years with no lease. Two years ago I paid to get the roof re-shingled and got reimbursed by the landlord because she didn't have the money on hand. This year, a tree fell on the house and the landlord still didn't have insurance, even after raising the... Read more »
Owner can sell the real property subject to your possessory rights. The grantee would then file the Detainer Warrant. You can sue for unjust enrichment, but it does not look good. Most competent lawyers would decline representing you.
I am a 57yr old female. I have to move out of my apartment that I have been in for over a year due to the fact that I lost my job over a month ago and have had no income to pain next months rent. I will start a new job on monday so I would only be two weeks late. Can I ask them to let me stay if I... Read more »
Have no idea what a dwell law is. But contact your landlord and promise the exact day you will pay rent. They may wait, especially if you wind up being a good tenant. If no agreement, then the landlord must file a Detainer Warrant, serve/post it, get a Judgment of Possession, then either you...Read more »
Hire a competent attorney to perform a title search, then draft, execute and record an Affidavit of Heirship. That will be your source of Title, then you are able to execute a deed as the grantor, with the Affidavit shown in the Derivation of Title Clause.
Hire a competent attorney to perform a title search, then draft, execute and record an Affidavit of Heirship. If there are Liens, then they must be addressed, or you might not own the real property very long. Any money owed would be against the property, not you personally.
The Judgment is for Possession, not for money against you. So I would not worry about it too much. I suggest calling the Sheriff of the County that issued the Writ and inform him of the location of the car and key, if you do not wish to take the car to her home. You do not want to be accused...Read more »
If the Will is not Probated, it has no effect. Apparently the vehicle was intestate property, and goes to the spouse, and issue if any. They could file for Probate several years from now, but it does not sound like there is enough property to pursue such a proceeding against a surviving spouse....Read more »
That Conviction is probably permanent. If somehow the Defendant was convicted of an E Felony, then it might be possible. Check the Judgment of Conviction. There could also be a problem with a Lesser Included Offense. Diversion and Expungement are not exactly applied the same way on every...Read more »
Having a Handgun Carry Permit is irrelevant, unless procuring one is required by the DA to work out the Charge. But getting the weapon and ammunition returned can be difficult, at best. You need a competent attorney to represent you on the criminal charge, which if there is a conviction, will...Read more »
If he is found guilty, possibly 25 years at 85%. But unless there were bodily injuries, the Conviction(s) will be for lesser included offenses at 30 or 35 %, concurrently. That is much less jail or prison time, with parole thereafter. With your stated facts, it is just speculation at this...Read more »
A friend of mine was driving my truck and she went in the gas station and stole candy bars and paid for gas. While pumping gas she was confronted by store employees who said that they had her on camera stealing candy bars. And that the law was on the way and she should stay put until the police...

Either of you may be charged with Theft of Property. Usually a LEO will hunt you down with the Tag, then ask you if you stole property. If nothing happens, do not worry about it. If you are charged, you will need to convince the LEO you did nothing but loan your vehicle. It would help if your...Read more »
I do not know what that drug is, but the State can claim anything in your system influences your driving. And there is a threshold amount for Sentencing purposes for Alcohol only, with no particular amounts making a difference for drugs. So TN can probably charge you with DUI with that in your...Read more »
You probably will have to sue his Estate, if there is one. There is probably a large problem here. There is also a Real Estate Education Trust Fund to notify upon institution of Suit. You cannot sue the Insurance Co. directly.
The person collecting is not the original creditor but a default judgment was received. It is still within the statute of limitations and apparently a the person sold the judgment. Now my roommate has gotten a letter saying they may file for a lien or wage garnishment.
If they own the Judgment, then they can try to collect it. Whatever license you think they do not have, has nothing to do with collecting against the debtor. You would only be able to file a complaint with the State.
And then this person said that this was actually a 16 year old and he is going to press charges. If this ended up with him asking for money. I realize that this would most likely be a scam but if it was real, can I actually be arrested amd prosecuted for this? This is deeply troubling.
