Q: Can I use a quick claim deed to remove a name from the title of my home?

Andy Wayne Williamson answered on May 8, 2018

Short answer yes. However, is it a good idea, no way to say as you do not state the facts and circumstances surrounding your reason for wanting to remove your name. You really should consult with a real estate attorney to get specific advice first.

Good luck,

Q: Repo guy came to "repossess" my 21 y/o Harley which has never had a note on it. I've owned it since 2002.

I wasn't home so I didn't see the repo "paperwork" so I have NO idea who is looking for me. A VIN search shows my title as clear (no liens) and I am in possession of the title; I have never used the Harley or anything I own as collateral against another loan. Back in 2008 my ex-husband and I had... Read more »

On the facts stated, that is no way to answer your question. I suggest that you consult with a consumer rights attorney in your area, and keep the bike under lock and key as best your can.

Sorry for your situation. Short answer is that if all the stuff is either gone or destroyed you likely do not have much you can really do. It will be incredibly hard to prove who did what and in the end it will cost a lot of time and money to chase assets that are long gone.

Hope this...

Q: My year lease expired at the end of April. Am I required to give thirty days written notice to terminate this agreement?

Property manager never notified me of any renewal offers prior to lease end and I moved out end of the lease. Being told I lost my security deposit

Andy Wayne Williamson answered on May 2, 2018

Simply put. You need to consult with a tenant attorney in your area to have your lease reviewed. Security deposit claims require very specific actions by the landlord or they forfeit the claim on the security deposit.

Good luck.

Your son has no power to stop or prevent her threats. Sounds like he needs to stay away from her.

She has no right to enter your property to remove anything. She would be trespassing. You can call the police on her.

A case starts with an allegation or series of allegations. Proof is the ultimate issue and thus the Plaintiff will have to prove its case. The plaintiff does not have to prove its case from the start only make the proper allegations to form the basis of a valid cause of action.
