The new house in FL may close before I have the proceeds from the sale of my present home in NC which I was going to use for payment. I would repay the retirement acct. immediately with the proceeds. As of yet I have not withdrawn any monies from either my retirement or 401K
We bought a home for cash in NC 7 years ago with proceeds from sale of home in VA, paid off by my husband’s parents estate. Separated since January when I left for a job across the country. He listed the house in late July and we have a buyer and contract, which he just decided not to honor.... Read more »
I would need to review the deed to the house to give a definite answer.
However, it is likely that the house is in both your names and you and he own it as tenants in common. He is allowed to live there rent-free, but he is responsible for 50% of all expenses, taxes, utilities, hoa fees,...Read more »

We purchased a house. We were told of an organic material in the crawlspace on the beams for the foundation of the house. The appraiser took a single picture of the crawl space(Yes, I know the appraiser is not a mold expert). We had someone give us cost to fix the moisture issues. They said it... Read more »
Lender wants proof of ownership of road and none exists. I am told that road is owned by the residents on it. Now they say I must get statements from all on the road saying this, and then get it recorded by the county. I do not want this invasion of my privacy. What else can I do? Thanks
The ownership depends on the language located in the deed, the language in any wills, and the order in which your family members passed. Without all that information, a lawyer will not be able to give you specific answers to your questions.

You need a NC attorney to search the title and determine ownership. The 20 @ Tract must have a description, which may require a Survey. Then a Deed can be drafted with a proper derivation of title clause and a legal description. It must be executed by the owners to you, then recorded.
Unless she has your Power of Attorney, she cannot sell your property. But are you sure you are the owner? A title search by a NC attorney might be needed, along with letters to interested parties. A complaint against the real estate agent might be in order.
The area in question was purposely covered by a piece of furniture that fit exactly inside a closet. The end of month we'll be here 1 yr. We just moved this furniture and saw a nightmare. We had an inspection done and he never even checked. The home was built in 2019. We are 3rd owners. DR... Read more »
Get your entire contract and as much information in front of a local lawyer as soon as possible. While it is likely too late to utilize the home warranty, if it exists, you can likely still file a lawsuit against some party to the matter.
Without reading your contract, no lawyer is going to be able to give you advice on what your options are. My guess is that they had a clause in the contract that allows them to do this, but I don't know.
