my mom & I bought a house together. The deed states 50/50. She paid it off. Her will is now worded to make it sound like she is sole owner and that she has all the rights to make the decisions on the property, after she dies. The attorney led her to believe that since she paid if off that its... View More
If the contract for the property sale did not explicitly state that the buyers are required to maintain the property in good condition, your options for legal recourse may be limited. Alaska property law generally leans on the written agreements between parties. However, some general principles of...View More
We bought it together, money may have come from both accounts, but it all originated from my paychecks, as she made next to nothing during that time, and continued to make next to nothing until very recently. We don’t want to live together, and neither of us are willing to leave. Obviously this... View More
A friend of mine is watching my house, and was waiting on a new tire to fix their truck. I had mentioned to her that I had gotten an email from HOA to fix these issues, I had reached back out to the HOA after the fact to let them know what was going on. 10 days later, they fined me for both the...

Assuming that your land is in an organized borough or municipality, yes, there are many factors that might make it difficult to develop the land. Check with the code enforcement office of your borough or municipality to see what you might need to do.
I was evicted without opa or lawyer present . I was told I abandoned my apt and locked out n things thrown in dump . Opa aware I'm dying and trafficked but no help. How can I better advocate or get my funds to live . I'm disabled with speech impediment
An Alaska attorney could advise best, but your question remains open for two weeks and your situation is a difficult and heartbreaking one. Under the posted categories, personal injury, real estate attorneys aren't going to know about this - the eviction issue is something for a...View More
Most real estate attorneys and all title companies can do a search for land in your father's name or in your name (if already transferred). If the land is still in your father's name, you need a probate attorney to help you get it retitled.
In short we have a newly formed HOA of 3 years in an area that had a lease that was never enforced and now those same rules are the HOA rules and are only heavily enforced on a very small few. Refuse to address it and discuss it. Allow different rules and exceptions for certain members. Enforce a... View More
Many homeowner associations are incorporated. Look to their Articles of Incorporation and Bylaws to determine available procedures for voicing complaints. If you follow the proper "administrative" procedures and obtain no substantive review or response then you have a procedural cause...View More
Hire a competent Alaska attorney to draft a Deed. You can have a life estate/remainder deed, tenants in common, joint tenancy with right of survivorship, or many other types of future interest deeds. It may need a title search besides just examining to last Deed.
Foreclosed with Deed of trust and promissory note thru divorce. Ex still owes alot to original owners. Should have been paid in full in 2015. All involved avoid/ignore me. Am I responsible for his payment contract?
You are not personally responsible for the priority Note. But if someone does not pay it, at some time in the future the first Deed of Trust will be foreclosed. If there is no surplus, then your Deed is extinguished. But if there is a surplus, and the trustee is honest, you as the second...View More
You do not say the capacity in which you "jointly own" but typically in Alaska a husband and wife acquire real estate "by the entirety" meaning 'as husband and wife.' Given that you are apparently divorced I'm presuming your ownership was converted to...View More
Can I stop them from selling the house since Ive lived here for almost 6 yrs taking care of my grandparents they won't let me buy it they have a power struggle issue and won't even give it another thought and I have the means to pay it off alztimers disease is horrible
My grandpa is 88 suffering of alztimers ive had no help from any family what rights do I have when he dies concerning his house can I pay off the morguage and stay here if my family wants to kick me out
If your grandparents had validly executed (while they were still mentally competent) wills, their estate passes by the terms of the wills. If not, by the intestacy statutes. I don't believe there is anything that would compensate you for taking care of them.
Is this for Dillingham? It may be that the city banned liquor stores under another power than its planning and zoning power. Or one would have to look at the zoning code and see what the code says about "unzoned" areas (or perhaps called an "unrestricted use zone")....View More
The choice is yours, but you should accept the best offer, obviously. You would only accept the backup offer if the acceptance is contingent upon the other sale not happening. It looks like you really need the services of a realtor or attorney on this.
9 years ago I turned the deed over to an individual on a real estate deal that has gone bad. The current owner wants too much money in return for the deed but the mortgage note is still in my name. The note is NOT assume able and his payments are very low (under my name). How do I either get my... View More
