they can ask, and you would have to assert the proper objections. it doesn't sound like you have an attorney and if they do have an attorney and you do not then you need to hire one because the procedural aspects and specifics of a lawsuit can affect the overall outcome of a case.
My parents have passed on this last August and my sister is now the trustor. If I were to buy her out and take ownership of the house prior to February 15, 2021 would I qualify for a reassessment exclusion? It would not be our primary residence.
you need to speak to a trust administration attorney. if your parents already passed, the trust itself governs the transfer of properties and given your stated dates, you may not be subject to prop 19 but you need to speak to an attorney regarding the specifics to know your options.
My bank paid a $50,000 auto loan to a fraudulent dealer. The money was misdirected to a different business name that I did not authorize. My bank has told me that no fraud occurred and that I should pay the loan anyway. I believe that the bank has mishandled the transaction and did not perform the... Read more »
This is not a quick answer by any means. This would require that you consult with and likely hire the lawyer to review all the documents and facts to determine your legal rights and options. Feel free to schedule an appointment to discuss in detail.
purchased a car at Stead Hilltop Ford with $7000 down, $10,000 on credit. Have had the car a month, then a letter from Wells Fargo came and denied my loan because of a 612 credit score. Does Stead get the car back, and I get all my money back, or does Stead carry the note?
Generally, the dealer has 10 days from the date of purchase to inform you whether financing went through or not, and if they don't tell you within those 10 days, then the dealer becomes your finance company. If the dealer does tell you within 10 days of signing the contract, then the dealer...Read more »
I'm in default but have learned that the contractor needed a separate permit to perform the work so that the work would be reviewed by the city and signed off accordingly. That was part of the contract, that I would have to pay them once the city signed off the permit. Since they didn't... Read more »
if there is a default against you, it means you failed to appear and the judge entered judgment. there are only limited circumstances where that default could be lifted and you will need a lawyer to go over those options and do the work which means you will need to pay a lawyer to do this. it is...Read more »
there is not enough information to answer your question. did you sign an agreement with them that would give them that right? do they hold the note or title? you will need to speak to an attorney to review the specific facts and legal options.
We bought our Mothers house together. I wanted to fix it up but she didn't so we ended up having to demolish it. She told me she wanted to build aa retirement home for her and her husband when they retire. But I want to recoup the money I put into it! I don't want to be left with nothing... Read more »
not sure what the question here is. also not clear if you purchased a new house or are renting one. different laws apply and therefore lawyers don't always practice in both arears of law. maybe rewrite and report your post and question with more information and details.
After an OSC, the court ordered the sale of a residence in October. The homestead granted was $75K. If a BK is filed in December and later dismissed in January/February, does the Judgment Creditor need to file a new OSC in order to get another court order - or is the original OSC restated? The...

the an order is already entered, no further order is necessary. the bankruptcy will only delay but not prevent the sale. You have to take the appropriate action in state court to reverse such an order.

Her license or lack of license is separate and apart from whether or not your relatives can recover from her. If they paid for a product and didn't receive the product (assuming it was under $10,000) they can sue her in small claims to recover the money.
Have you tried asking your attorney? It sounds like you are questioning a billing entry. If you filed a complaint, the other side can file a demurrer (a type of motion to dismiss). Your attorney then needs to read, review, and research the law used within the demurrer to be able to prepare and...Read more »

I do not think the contract package is legit, because during the process, the broker always mess up the docu sign contracts and I worry if there is something shady in the contract. Especially during the Covid time eviction is impossible I am really worried.

If there is no agreement by the owners regarding payments or selling the property, than partition is the appropriate action to take. It will either force a sale of the property or a buy out of the party asking for a partition.
Sellers did not disclose an upcoming construction next door - even though they received an official notice from the city planning department. We as buyers and sellers have signed the purchase contract; but we have NOT put down the deposit money yet (it's been 2 business days since signatures).... Read more »
It doesn't sound like you have much of a case. You could be in breach if you back out.
