My mother recently passed away. We transferred her home and car into my name a few months before her death, but the mortgage is still in her name which I have been paying. She did not have any estate. Am I responsible for paying her Medical bills prior to her passing and can they take the house... View More
Without seeing the actual bills and the deed transferring the property to you, I can't give you an answer. I suggest taking all the paperwork to a local attorney and having them give you specific advice.
The mortgage company will likely require you to get a new mortgage or, if you are...View More
You can likely do this as a private individual. However, I would highly recommend forming an LLC to give you some legal cover. You should also have an attorney draft a contract that makes it very clear you are disclaiming as many warranties as possible regarding the condition of the homes. There...View More
Especially when the technician was taking photos and videos of our belongings? The homeowner now wants us evicted and gone by the 29th and we were never given a chance to remedy the issue or a written notice of the eviction.
Depends on several factors if your prior lease was written then it was renewed on a month-to-month basis using the same terms as your prior lease and if it required 30 days then you would likely be bound by it. If it was oral then your 7-day notice was fine.
It took three months after I moved out to get the original check (supposedly due to change of management). After that check bounced, they claimed they were sending a replacement. It has now been another two months without my deposit.
I highly advise you to hire an attorney and have them assist you in probating the estate. The credit card debt can likely be wiped out by opening the estate. The medical debt will unfortunately likely follow you since spouses are normally liable for the medical debts incurred by their spouse.
I am reaching out to you in hopes that you can help me. I just found out that my house in NC got demolished. No one notified me. I found out about it due to HomeGo sending me something in the mail stating I could sell my house in as little as seven days. They included a picture of the property and... View More
First, you need to contact your insurance carrier, they will likely cover the costs for an attorney and pay off your mortgage. You also need to contact an attorney in the area near where the house was and get them to find out exactly what happened. You may have a substantial claim against whoever...View More
Mr. Avery is not entirely correct here. I would not be surprised to see either type of ownership. It is very common to have a joint tenancy created among family members to avoid probate. In joint tenancy, everything would have passed to your sister the second your mother passed. To confirm this,...View More
After the sheriff has evicted the person, the soonest that the personal possessions can be presumed to be abandoned is 10 days after a notice has been posted. Generally speaking, the tenant is allowed to come back onto the property under supervision and retrieve their belongings. The landlord...View More
Neighbor had paid a surveyor to locate property line after we installed a shop and he said it was on his property. After survey had proved we are not on his property. he planted bushes ( hedges) that are directly on the property line, these will grow and cross the line. What are my rights. and how... View More
When the hedges grow and cross your line technically, it is a trespass.
That being said, I would advise you to tell your neighbor that as long as they maintain the hedges, you don't care, but if they fail to do so, you will cut all the portions of the hedge that trespass on your...View More
In NC as long as the first will or estate was properly probated, the property passed to the now-deceased individual. If the second will or intestacy proceeding names the husband as the sole beneficiary of the property, it is now in his name.
Without reviewing both estates and the original...View More

I would have to check to make sure that your brother didn't add his wife to the deed before he passed, before giving my full legal opinion. But in the scenario you outlined, since the ownership was joint with the right of survivorship between you and your brother, once your brother passed,...View More

I purchased a home in NC with cash and had it titled JTROS with long term partner. At the time (about 6 years ago), it didn't seem like a QTIP was an option since we were not married. I have 2 adult children and she has one adult child from our prior marriages.
In the event that you die within 120 hours of your partner. Both of you are deemed to have survived the other and your respective interest in the property would pass to your respective beneficiaries. There are exceptions to this rule but that is the basic premise.
Your divorce proceedings should have included an agreement for her to refinance the property, but they may not have. If they didn't you can request the bank remove you but they will likely refuse to do so.
