This candidate's excuse is a '5 year statute of limitations for enforcing Deed restrictions' b/c his wife was on the Board for years, & used 'selective enforcement" of restrictions on some while they refused to comply.
It depends on who signed the mortgage note. If you both signed it, the mortgagee can come after either of you if the note isn't paid according to its terms. So if he dies AND the note isn't paid, the mortgagee could foreclose and seek a deficiency judgment against you. But in general,...Read more »
HOAs do not have a statutory duty to answer questions from homeowners, but in the case of simple questions like this, it sends up a red flag for me that the HOA is not being transparent. Who do you pay assessments to? Usually assessments are sent to and processed by the management company. Is it...Read more »

My dad owns a lot in Ocala FL and was sent an unsolicited offer to buy from a firm. He reluctantly agreed to a ridiculously low offer but haven't heard anything in months. Since it's been so long, we consider it no longer valid even though there's no sell by date, and instead would... Read more »
the roots from that tree to encroach onto property, damaging our chain link fence and yard. I have been trying since September to resolve the issue with the apartment manager, but to no avail. We were told by an arborist that it is not safe to remove the roots of a tree because the tree itself will... Read more »
Your insurance company's obligations are spelled out in your policy. The company apparently is relying on policy language to deny the claim. When denying a claim, more often than not, the insurer is correct about the exclusion language, sometimes it's incorrect, and sometimes, the...Read more »

Guy was a state attorney and landed himself in trouble with the fed. Disappeared and no way to continue paying for this property. We did the contract through a local title company, so it's all legit.

and the roots from that tree encroach on our property damaging our fence. 21 feet (.0744 acres) is landlocked property, which we do not own, however, we do own the fence, that is located on the landlocked property. The apartment manager has repeatedly ignored our emails since September. What rights... Read more »
It is unclear what you mean when you write that it's your fence, but it is on the "landlocked property" which you don't own. If someone else owns the land upon which the fence is located, the fence is probably theirs too.
It's always a good idea to have an attorney review real property transactions. If you ask this in Justia > Ask a Lawyer > North Carolina, it's more likely that you will get an answer from someone who knows more about the laws in that state. For example, I'm not sure what you...Read more »

A mortgage and a note are two different things, but they must both be signed by the borrower to get a mortgage. If the co-owner is not on the mortgage the co-owner still needs to sign the mortgage to acknowledge the property has a mortgage because the co-owner stands to lose their interest if there...Read more »

He left in November of 2019 and now that I am trying to sell my property - he... Read more »
Although you indicate that the down payment (and mortgage payments, if I understand you correctly) will be your money, that money will be considered marital property, so the rental property (as well as the LLC) will also be marital property. So it will be part of the property to be divided in the...Read more »

Hello! Not super important, but the HOA (to be clear, NOT our landlords landscapers) came and dug up all of the ground plants against the home we are renting, and trimmed all of the fauna and trees, without our permission. All growing areas were covered with mulch as well. I loved the plants in our... Read more »
It's impossible to answer this question without reading the HOA documents, but it is entirely possible they could if they gave the landlord notice to cure a violation and the landlord ignored it. You as a renter do not have very many rights when it comes to the HOA. The HOA documents are a...Read more »
