My dad sold his gas station about a year ago (as it was in bankruptcy). He had to go through the court system to negotiate a deal with the buyer and was asked to pay a portion of the funds to lenders to pay off debt owed. He would still be left over with a good amount of money (close to $70k+). To... Read more »

It sounds like you were renting month to month and the new owner of the house, your dad's estate, has served you will a 60-day notice to quit in order to prepare the house for sale. You must move within that 60 day period. If you do not move, they can get a local sheriff to bodily drag you out...Read more »

You can bring litigation against the caretaker for the wrongdoing of taking the decedent's property. A power of attorney terminates at death. The question is, will you collect any money from the caretaker?
After the owner died the caretaker stayed living in the house. Caretaker changed all locks and changed phone number. After the house got sold by bank the caretaker received money to move out and she took decendants personal belongings, valuables and all furniture with no accountability. Caretaker... Read more »
Few things happen automatically, without someone putting things in motion. Most likely, Wells Fargo did everything required of them by the law and the Trust Deed under which the home was sold. It is up to an heir, a friend, or even a creditor to open a probate if they have some interest is doing...Read more »
When you say he "lost the house" do you mean the bank foreclosed on him? If so then don't pay him. Wait for the bank to contact you most likely through a real estate agent. Unless someone bought the house through a foreclosure sale - then they should contact you. But if the owner/landlord still...Read more »

We learned that the house was in contract phase with a new individual. Now the sale is final and that woman is demanding $ but refuses to turn water on which was part of our initial lease with the initial woman we rented from. What are our options ??
Assuming you have already sent her a letter telling her to turn the water and she has refused. Call the City inspectors and tell them to cite her for depriving you of water and sewage. Once the city inspects your house and cites her, talk to a Tenant lawyer to advise your further. Best of luck:
You have not given enough facts for me to answer the question. Assuming we are talking about a deed that has been properly recorded on real property, then the answer would probably be this: The grantor is the person granting another party the right to own an interest in the grantee's property....Read more »

Send me a copy of the loan docs and the notices. I had almost exact issue with BoA couple years ago. The bank was really slow to respond and we had to bring a lawsuit. It took a year to get rid of the loans.
First thing to do is to negotiate with the lender to delay the foreclosure. As a last resort, you can file a TRO to stop the foreclosure. In the meantime, sell the house and pay them off. You need an attorney.
I would think that if the depo went forward without the video, that would not make a difference. Sometimes the party demanding a deposition specifies different modes of recording the deposition, and then chooses to use other means. If the depo has already been taken, it is a moot point. If it is...Read more »
The mortgage is still attached to the dirt and needs to be paid to avoid foreclosure. You can communicate with the mortgage company if you remind them of a new (in 2017) law California Civil code 2920.7. It allows a successor in interest to communicate with the mortgage company. Possibly they will...Read more »
we have a buyer n started escrow but title company said that house is still n grandmas name n we need permission to sell it, can we do this without probate by just recording my mom owner or permission ? what or how do we do this ?
If at all possible, you should make the monthly mortgage payments. The expenses of the probate matter are expenses of the estate. Once you have letters, you can negotiate with the lender for an extension of time to sell the house so it doesn't get sold in foreclosure. Your attorney fee agreement...Read more »

I'm sorry, but I'm confused by the facts of what has happened. If you are an heir to the decedent's estate, then you can file a probate petition to settle the estate and possibly distribute the house to you. Contact a probate attorney in your area for a full consultation.
