My grandparents died 5 years ago and had a house out of state that hasn’t sold. It is listed online as “off market” and we still have not received the inheritance from the executor. Do they have a time limit on when this needs to be paid out? It’s been 5 years and it still is not settled.
There is no set time for an estate to be wound up and paid out; it depends on the size of the estate and other factors. The executor (or personal representative) of a last will has a fiduciary responsibility to protect the assets entrusted to them and to insure that everything is done legally so as...Read more »

I am not licensed to practice law in Colorado, but after 41+ years of practicing law in Florida my gut instinct is to answer your question with a definite no.

The rent WAS paid on time and can be shown in my banking records.

I was wondering if it’s illegal to create an app that gives people dating advice, as well as help people get their online profiles up to date and make them more presentable for the type of person that they’re looking for. I would state that I’m not a therapist or anything like that. But was... Read more »
If you undertake this plan without having the input of at least two lawyers you will probably regret it. This situation is one that brings to mind the ancient warning: "If it looks too good to be true, it probably isn't."
We took a jeep to a mechanic to get it modified. We agreed on price and completion date. We paid him. The completion date was two weeks.

But if one or more original owners quitclaims their portion to others within the original group of joint tenants, does the right of... Read more »
First off you can be sued for pretty much anything so I'd answer that with a yes. Whether there's a viable claim is another story. The fact that the potential plaintiff doesn't really have a case won't stop them from filing suit and forcing you to go through the legal process of proving they don't...Read more »
