If I were you, I would go ahead and pay it with a thank you note to the management. The last time I had a snake job done in my house cost me $1,200.00 and until today, have problems with the pipes. Best of luck!
My brother inherited a home from our late parents (both passed away in 2018). The home was originally in my parents' revocable trust. We hired a trust company to handle the transfer. The company filed the appropriate grant deed documents and the transfer went from my parents' trust, to my brother,... Read more »
Your brother must be a current income and/or principal beneficiary of the trust to avoid reassessment under Prop. 13, and all other current income and/or principal beneficiaries must also qualify for an exemption for the transfer to the trust to be considered an exempt transfer. The county...Read more »
Escrow interpleaded buyer's deposit of amount $50,000 from California Vacant Land Purchase Agreement (CAR form VLPA). I am a seller and believe I am entitled to this deposit due to both: 1) buyer breach of contract and 2) escrow negligence to ensure conditions are met. I need a local lawyer to... Read more »
The house is in California and owned by both of my parents, both are California residents. I am not aware if there is any form from the superior court resource that deals with this issue (closest being the spousal transfer form) directly.
Assuming the deed says "in joint tenancy" or "as joint tenants"then you would just need to record an "affidavit of death of joint tenant" form. Can probably get that online somewhere. I believe a preliminary change of ownership form is also required which can be be obtained from the county...Read more »
I have a revocable trust, i have a home co-owned with an ex girlfriend that I've paid off myself. I want to remove her name from the title without triggering a reassessment by placing it into my Trust. She is not a trustee on my trust, & the house is not in my trust. Can I file a PCOR form & use... Read more »
No. Once you have bought out your ex-girlfriend’s 50% interest in the house, you will be reassessed for the 50% interest which you purchased. If you try to do as you suggest, you will be caught when the assessor asks to see a copy of your trust and sees that your ex has no beneficial interest...Read more »
I recently purchased a, fully furnished, mobile home, in the Roadrunner Mobile Home Park, and turned in my application for space rental, along with a money order for their, required, background check. While waiting for their decision, they went in to my home, and removed all furnishings, barred me... Read more »
Did you get a bill of sale when you purchased the mobile home so you can prove title?
If so, I would go to the local police station and report a breaking and entering and grand theft complaint. This is not a civil dispute at this point, it is a criminal matter. I would also go to the local...Read more »
The wood almost fell into my Daughter's bedroom window. They sent someone to fix the wood that fell, now something else is hanging off a few feet away.

Our million dollar estate was distributed while it is still in the bankruptcy trustees control and I do not believe a relief of stay was granted to distribute the estate. In any case I was awarded one of the homes while my X got everything else . My home is encumbered 100% and is to be sold since... Read more »
Your question presents a very complicated case and issues; I believe, much more than can be responded to in this forum. I urge you to contact an experienced bankruptcy attorney in your area to arrange a consultation to go over in detail what has occurred and what your options might be.
One option would be to discuss what you want to do with a local title company and open an escrow with the title company. You deposit the purchase price and your siblings signed a deed to you and deposit it into escrow, and the escrow agent records the deed and disburses the funds to them. It is a...Read more »

It's the lender who signs off on a deed of reconveyance when a loan secured by real property has been paid in full. If the decedent and/or the decedent's estate loaned money to someone and received payment in full, yes, the executor of the estate would sign off on the deed of reconveyance. No...Read more »
It’s possible that this gives you a very broad easement.
But to give you a firm opinion an attorney would need to look at the subsequent title history of all the properties involved as well as any recorded court history as it is possible the easement was lessened or revised or cancelled...Read more »
If it can be established that their home was held as community property, then the adjusted basis of their home would have been stepped up to its full fair market value at the time of your father’s death for income tax purposes, meaning there would be no capital gain as of your father’s date of...Read more »
