Q: Real Estate valuation:My parents, deceased, are 1/3 owners of a vacation house with two of my brothers. How is it valued

1 Answer | Asked in Estate Planning and Real Estate Law for Florida on
Answered on Apr 20, 2018
Andy Wayne Williamson's answer
The person selling his or her interest would get a value equal to 1/3 of the agreed or appraised value in exchange for giving a deed for his 1/3 share.

If an owner wants or agrees to sell his 1/3 share for less than appraised value that person is free to do so.

Answered on Apr 20, 2018
Andy Wayne Williamson's answer
Yes you have legal rights. Do you have sufficient legal damages to justify the pursuit of a case against the dealer is the better question to ask. I suggest that likely no, as a lawyer will cost anywhere from $250.00 per hour to potentially $450.00 per hour or more.

Hope this helps.

If you bought the property via a loan from a mortgage company and then you deeded the property to your son then he is the owner of the property. However he is most likely not on the loan. Therefore he has no legal right or ability to do anything with the loan. He cannot modify it. He can send payments in that the mortgage company will most Likely accept.

Hope this helps. Good luck.

No way to say without reviewing the contract documents which cannot be done here online. You selling the car does not relieve you of the obligations of the contract. Now that you don’t have the car it will be hard to show that they will not honor their part and do an alignment.
