There has not been any easements recorded but when you look at the text information it shows a shared well. The water was on when I was looking at the property but has since been turned off. I'm wondering the cost of having to get an easement. And are there any damages I can recover because... Read more »
My aunt and I own a home together. I live there. She never even goes there. She gave the police permission to search inside without my permission and opened the door for them when i wasnt there. Is this legal in virginia? This is my mailing address, I reside there. Not her. Was this illegal at all?... Read more »
You say she is a part owner of the home, so it sounds like it is probably a good search. If you have a signed lease entitling you to sole possession and she has no right to possess/enter/inspect then maybe you have something to base that claim on but it seems unlikely.
Both parties signed. After the inspection we requested repairs and a pool inspection. The seller received the pool inspection and it was good and asked to not pay anything in closing. Can he go back to the agreed upon payments to get out of the sale if we don’t agree.
Long story short, I have lived in my condo since 2006, wherein I installed security cameras with permission of the then current management. In 2019, the new management began to send letters that the cameras were in violation. I responded several times, it would stop for 3 months at a time, no... Read more »

At least the seller, and probably his agent, knew he was looking at a murder charge, so he decided to sell and run. You might want to walk away from this as the victim's next of kin might file a wrongful death action and set aside any transfer of assets. Consult with a VA attorney for...Read more »
She said that she would give us a little over a week to leave and that we can come back after renovations are done, however we don't have enough money to leave because we still have to pay for staying another week and she refuses to put us into another room. We do not have a lease, we pay week... Read more »
We were all served paperwork stating that the property would be auctioned off to pay what's owed and we would receive the difference. A couple weeks after the auction date I contacted the law office in charge of the sale to see how much the property sold for. I was told it didnt go to auction... Read more »
Wow. You probably did a very stupid thing by not stepping in. In a foreclosure, the secured and foreclosing party will bid as much but not more than what is called the upset price. That is the amount they are owed after fees and expenses. In a very hot market, especially with all the many varieties...Read more »
I have 2 siblings, both of which had separate judgements paid off by the estate when we sold the family farm. The siblings along with myself were listed as co-owners of the estate when my dad passed, so the judgements had to be paid before any funds from the sale were released. I shouldn't... Read more »
Take the net proceeds of the sale and add back the amounts of the judgements that were paid, then divide that sum by the number of equal shares. Each beneficiary’s share is that quantity less the amount of judgements paid on his or her behalf.

Can he use pictures taken by the owners before the changes? Doesn't this mean he... Read more »
You need to consult counsel before anyone signs an offer on a home. Depending on the circumstances, it might be possible to contribute funds to the purchase, but I don't know what "brother dad" means; I can't determine from your question who is on the deed and who is on the...Read more »
My parents told me they wanted to leave me their house when they both past away. I sold my house and moved in with them. One year later my father pasted away and not even 2 months later my mom said that she wasn't going to leave me the house because she had 3 other kids to think about. Is this... Read more »
Almost all contracts are verbal, either oral (spoken) or written. A last will and testament requires certain formalities, as does a revocable or irrevocable trust. Both must be in writing and signed. In spite of the absence of a written will, trust, or contract, in some instances a court can...Read more »

I am sorry to hear what you just learned and the possible consequences. You might have a recourse against the seller, the seller's agent, your agent, or ask the title insurance underwriter for help. But, without a lawyer reviewing all the relevant documents who can then provide proper advice,...Read more »
You need to see a lawyer who will learn more about the arrangements and understanding between you and your girlfriend, then advice, counsel and provide options. Or, it could be as simple as a memo on the check "for rent only".
