You will probably have to file a lawsuit. Depending on the relevant facts, however, you may be entitled to a mechanic’s lien. Maine law provides that “[w]hoever performs labor or furnishes labor or materials, . . . or performs services as a[n] . . . owner-supplier of equipment used in erecting,... Read more »

I cannot answer your question without more information. For starters, what do you mean by "with no lien holder on it"?
answered on Nov 26, 2021
Your question does not contain sufficient facts to provide a complete answer. That said, it sounds like the seller may have breached his or her contract with you and you would be entitled, at least, to a refund of what you paid to the seller. In a conventional breach of contract situation, the most... Read more »
Do the new owners have to honor my lease if I stay within the lease agreement?
answered on Oct 12, 2021
As a general matter, unless your lease contains a provision stating that, upon a sale of the property, the lease can be terminated and you can be evicted, your lease would still be in effect after the sale and the new owners would step in as your new landlord. Yes, the new owners have to honor your... Read more »
want out of it. Do I have a "grace period" in which to retract the offer?
answered on Jun 28, 2021
The answer will depend on the terms of the purchase and sale agreement. Does it allow for the retraction of your offer? Also, there should be a section concerning termination of the agreement, which should list the allowable circumstances for termination. Assuming it does, then you would need to be... Read more »

We closed on the sale of our house August 3, 2020. I called the utility company to find out what the final utility payment would be and was told the payment amount would be given to the realtor to be deducted from the proceeds of the house. The bank only deducted $100.00, not the total amount of... Read more »

Did you receive an extra $374.50 in sale proceeds because the bank only deducted $100.00, not the total amount of $474.50, from the sale proceeds? If so, then you have to pay the $374.50. That puts all parties where they should have been. Plus, your closing documents probably contain language... Read more »
Closing date. Is the contract null and void. Can I legally chose not to move forward with the purchase of the home and look for another property?
answered on Aug 4, 2020
The answer will depend primarily, if not entirely, on the terms of your contract with the seller. What does it say about the consequences of the failure of the seller to deliver title on the closing date? That may give you the right to cancel the contract. If you have a broker, you should be...

I did agree to pay 875 in text
answered on Jun 27, 2020
You likely owe the amount of $875, even without a written lease, because leases can be oral and, as you say, you agreed to pay that amount in a text. It is difficult for me to respond on the plane ticket. What was your and her understanding at the time she bought the ticket? Was the ticket a gift... Read more »

Although I realize this is not a landlord-tenant situation, I would think if you followed the procedure outlined under Maine law for personal property that is abandoned or unclaimed by a tenant following the tenant’s vacating a rental unit, which can be found at 14 M.R.S. § 6013, you should be...

Assuming you have a written contract with the seller of the modular home, typically the terms of that contract would govern your available rights and remedies under the circumstances.
Or the bank just gave him a loan and then he told me that the bank sold it to a brokerage company and he will continue paying to the company and then the company asked for higher price for the house and I don’t think it’s a true story

Based on the facts as you have stated them, yes, if they start the eviction process before that 30 days + 7-day notice period is up, then they would be in breach of your contract.
