He could reject the lease and get out of it if he files bankruptcy. A mortgage and ownership vested in you is a much safer plan.
I have provided multiple written notices to enter a week in advance. The tenant continuously wants to reschedule. I cannot keep rescheduling with the bank. Not sure what to do at this point.

Whatever proceeds you agree to share with him is your decision. But apparently he owns the exact estate that you do, and without his signature, there will be no conveyance. Your paying the Note is irrelevant.
structure on it. I have asked them to remove it and replace the wall. I am just ignored. What can I do. Vince Cleri
answered on Jul 26, 2021
You will need a boundary line survey to prove you own all or most of the wall, with the surveyor available as a witness. Then you sue the adjoining owner for trespass, tort damages and possible conversion of the stones. Hopefully you will not need a Boundary Dispute Action. All of this is... Read more »

The Boundary Line is probably established by Acquiesence. Hire a CT attorney to search both titles and determine the common boundary line of record. Be prepared to defend your title on Acquiesence if he sues you.
I have a residential tenant and their lease is expiring. If they want to go month to month and we don't sign a new lease- Do the terms of the expired lease carry over into a month-to-month tenancy?
answered on Jan 29, 2021
A standard clause of most written leases provides that the terms of the written lease continue if the tenant holds over as a month to month lease. Check your lease to look for this clause.

The attorney is signing in his capacity as trustee of the trust so he is not personally responsible the trust is. If you had to pursue the trust for payment you would name the attorney as trustee as defendant in a collection suit to obtain a judgment against the trust.
When purchasing a probate home in CT, is there a minimum deposit amount required? I believe some states require a 10% deposit, is this true for CT as well?
answered on Sep 28, 2020
No. There is no law regarding the size of a deposit. There are quite a few factors that go into buying a home and identifying the deposit amount. Speak with your realtor or speak with a real estate attorney. Many attorneys (my firm included) like to speak to real estate clients early in the process... Read more »

Your problem lies with filing for Probate. That was not required. Hire a competent attorney to see if the Probate Proceeding can be Dismissed, which is doubtful.

I’m buying a small plot of land for a very cheap price, I’m looking to see if there is some sort of catch that can cause me financial burden
answered on Apr 30, 2020
If the real property is just deeded to you, then you take the tract subject to whatever encumbrances are on it. But as long as you do not assume or guarantee any debts on the plot, then those encumbrances are only against the land and are not your personal obligation. However any liens, taxes,... Read more »

If you were awarded the home in the divorce, then you would be the sole owner. If she was awarded the home in the divorce, then her estate is now the sole owner. If the divorce ordered you two to own the home 50/50 after divorce, then yes. The home will need to be probated and the probate court... Read more »

I live in my fathers house. He moved to NC. I've been here 5 years+. He was paying the mortgage and insurance until he passed. Now, because I live here is it fully my responsibility to pay these funds during probate? There are 4 heirs.
answered on Mar 9, 2020
The answer depends on who is going to inherit the house. It is they who need to pay the carrying costs. If they don’t pay those expenses out of pocket the estate can advance them if the estate has the liquidity to do so, but eventually they get charged to whoever inherits the house.
