You didn't ask a question. You should probably consult a lawyer with the trust to see if there's anything that can be done. We can't read your trust online, and these situations are very fact-based to the point that attempting to answer would be non-productive. Please see a lawyer.
SInce the house is located in New York, you should probably ask the question in the New York section of the forum to make certain that no New York law prohibits you transferring title. I can't imagine that there is - leases dont encumber titles.
UPDATE...LANDLORD SENT NEW LEASE INCLUDING OUR PETS. THANKS FOR THE ADVISE GIVEN! Can the new owner force us to sign a lease stating no pets after we have been here for 3 years with the pets and paid the pet deposit back then? We have always paid our rent on time and the new owner just visited the... Read more »
It doesn't matter that your old lease allowed pets - apparently the new one doesn't. You apparently have a difficult choice - stay where you are and lose the turtle and the gecko; or move. (I'm not really sure a gecko and a turtle even qualify as pets, but I'm not the landlord)
I am a landlord on a month to month lease agreement with a tenant that states she or I have to give 30 days notice to terminate the lease. She recently painted my home without my approval. I expressed my dismay to her, and told her she should have received my permission, first. She promptly cursed... Read more »
Yes, but you must give her proper notice. You should probably consult with a lawyer to make certain things are done correctly. Screw this up, and you could be looking at paying her attorney's fees as well as not being able to get rid of her. If you are in the business of renting property,...Read more »
My dad, who was a lifelong resident of GA, had a small trucking company in Savannah that he liquidated and closed in January of 2015. He was diagnosed with terminal cancer and passed a year and a half later on 6/17/2016. As his executor, and a resident of Florida since 1983, I honchoed his meager... Read more »
I cannot see how you could be held personally liable for this alleged debt. You were not a personal guarantor of the company's obligations to Comcast. However, it is possible that if he guaranteed the obligations, that his obligations were binding on his heirs.
Call the creditor, ask to speak to a manager. BE NICE. The minimum wage 20 year old who answers the phone is not responsible for the issue and probably nothing on his or her information screen would tell him or her why your account is in collection. Calmly explain that to the best of your...Read more »
I was never contacted. I know he had family up there that probably handled his things. I don't have contact with them. I'm wondering if too much time is passed to find out exactly what happened. I know that he had a will. When he got my personal information from me to a fix me as his... Read more »
So I got an evaluation in the city of where I was charged for minor possesion and it's hard for me to commute there from the city I currently live in. Is there any way I can start at a new program closer to where I live and not get hit with failure on first attempt?
Your issue is a criminal defense issue, not probate. Probate concerns the settling of the affairs of a person who has died. Talk to the person or office to whom you are supposed to report for your therapy.
We've tried since July to get them to send us a signed Lease, but they never answer. They're never available for phone calls and claim were holdover tenants now. They posted an eviction notice this month and said our CDC Declaration doesn't apply. We've called, emailed &... Read more »
Now that you know that they don't want you as a tenant, why would you want to stay? I'd give them notice and move. Its going to cost you more to fight this with an attorney; although consulting a LL/tenant attorney may not be a bad idea.
I would say yes. If the utility is included in the rent payment, the landlord is responsible for paying the utility company. If the tenant fails to pay rent and the landlord fails to pay the utility company thus depriving the tenant of utilities,; that could easily be construed as a self-help...Read more »
My father lived in Maryland, was not married, did not own a home, and has no debt nor retirement accounts. His only registered assets are a boat ($5k value), Md commercial fishing license, furniture and older firearms. He leaves behind myself (next of Kin), significant other, and my half brother...

Our landlord has recently sold the property where the house that my family rents is located. At first, the new landlord said he would let us stay but just last week informed us that he's changed his mind and is going to tear the house down instead. Possession of the property doesn't... Read more »
