It depends on they type of bankruptcy you went through and what the plan included. If it was a Chapter 7, then the liability to you was discharged but the lien remains on the property. If you don't pay, there will be a foreclosure. The difference is if the judgment is greater than the sale...Read more »

The purpose of a closing is to make sure that everything is in order. If you had an attorney represent you at the closing, the attorney would be the one to be called to task; otherwise whoever handled the closing for you. The long and the short of it is that you should have reviewed the documents...Read more »
You hire an attorney. If she had an agreement to pay rent, whether she did or not, makes a big difference and you cannot afford to screw it up, because the consequences can be a bitter pill to swallow if you are the landlord.

It is homesteaded property if i just quitclaim him off the deed will it remove him and his judgments? He also has the same name as his father and his father judgement liens are attached to my property as well. Please advise. He is willing to sign quitclaim and transfer his rights to me.
The only way to remove someone off of a deed is to get them to sign the deed. Once the judgment liens are recorded they are not removed until they are satisfied. You could possibly resolve the judgment liens from his father with an affidavit, but that will not solve all of your problems. You...Read more »
You have not stated the exact estate of you and your Daughter. You all could be tenants in common, life estate/ remainder, etc. That should determine your share of the proceeds. Obviously there is no sale without all owners conveying, so if you are not satisfied, do not convey.
If the POA gives your attorney-in-fact (the person designated in the power of attorney) the power to sell the property, yes you can. An attorney-in-fact is not, however, entitled to practice law, so if there is litigation involved that person could not represent you in that.
