A limited liability company has members and membership interests. Yes, you can purchase 99% of the interest in the LLC - but if you are leaving one percent- is that for the old owner- so they would be one percent equity owner? This sounds like a structure of membership issue. It may be...View More
We own a house. Unfortunately a tenant committed suicide there.Then it was on rent for 8 years.Now we want to sell the house .is it a offense, not telling the fact about suicide happened before to the buyer?
In Tennessee, the law does not typically require sellers to disclose deaths, including suicides, that occurred on a property. The state's real estate disclosure laws focus mainly on material defects affecting the property's physical condition or value.
The land I crossed to get to mine she left it to my cousins who are now trying to sale it can I keep my easement when they sale the land I have to cross about 25 feet of there land its the only way I can get to my land.
That is probably an Easement By Implication. But unless Grandmother put down an express easement in the others' chains of titles, or there is a recorded subdivision plat, you will have to go to Chancery to have it declared in force if the other adjoining landowners cut you off.
Did seller give you a residential disclosure statement? Read it verbatim and see what it says about the foundation. 1 year SOL from fraudulent execution of statement. Hopefully agent signed it also, for an additional defendant. But you will need to track down seller: location; bank; job....View More

Physical attack by another tenant is not a release from financial obligation on a note secured by a deed of trust. CH 7 Bankruptcy might be an option. Why did you give a deed without payment therefor? Usually the lender will foreclose on the home first, then possibly come after the...View More

This is what we are being told. This property is less then 2 acres. There was previously a house on it which caught fire and is not salvageable. At one point we were told the grandmother left the property and all on it to a grandchild. The power of attorney is trying to selling it as an individual,... View More
That conveyance would not be enforceable. Hire an attorney to search the title and determine ownership. Seller needs their own attorney to get Court authorization for sale of property of a minor. POA means nothing.
The opposing party in a Probate case claims they have made contributions to property taxes for the last 20 years. I was able to provide a recorded conversation between myself and the party, in which the party admitted that they withdrew their help/contributions 27 years ago. I always thought that... View More

You set yourself up for this to happen, and as always, it did. A good lawyer might file an equitable action in Chancery for a lien for the benefit conferred. If there was any kind of contract, then a mechanic's lien might be filed, but you must also be ready to sue for enforcement a few...View More
Buyer and seller reached a written agreement. Financing and all other contingencies had been removed. The day before closing, buyer said he had simply changed his mind and refused to close. Property went back on the market. Had selling agent earned his fee?
Typically, the terms of the listing agreement between the seller and the agent dictate when a commission is earned. Many listing agreements state that a commission is earned if the agent produces a ready, willing, and able buyer, even if the sale doesn't close due to no fault of the agent. If...View More
