The house is currently in the foreclosure process but the attorney for the mortgage company said I should still have time to try and sell. How do I get the house put in my name? What documents will I need? Should I get a lawyer?
First and foremost, I am very sorry for your loss.
As for the house, even though your parents did not have wills, you can start a probate action to be appointed the personal representative of each of their estates. As personal representative, you will have authority to offer their home for...View More
My house was getting foreclosed on. My dad and brother came together and got me enough money to not lose it. I am in the process now of getting my ex to sign the deed papers to get his name of it so I can make sure he is not entitled to anything nor has any say so. My kids father has not lived... View More
There are a lot of moving parts here and a lot at stake. Respectfully, with all the people and assets involved this is not an issue that can be resolved in an online forum. I strongly advise you to seek the advice of an attorney to sort it all out.
I have been in a billing dispute with my hoa. They will not allow access to records or books as afforded in the bylaws. A previous tenant gave me a copy of the cleared check for a debt the hoa claimed had not paid. I requested access to the records they denied. They hired an attorney and racked up... View More

You would “have a case” if you sue and a case number is assigned. If you don’t pay the disputed charge then I don’t know what damages you’ve suffered. If you do pay the disputed charge and then sue, you’ll...View More
My ex husband passed away, we had 2 kids, we actually never get separated, the divorce was only on the paper. the lawyer said not to make payments on the house. The house went foreclosed. We still live in this house.
If the house has been sold in foreclosure it belongs to someone else now. If the sale has not yet taken place you may still have a chance to stop the foreclosure. Bring every bit of the paperwork you have received to an attorney right away to find out where you stand.
I received a letter from an attorney telling me to pay the rent to a local bank instead of the landlords son, which I had been doing. I contacted the bank about the heater needing repair. They told me that since they don’t own the property they are limited in what they can do. Should I pay for... View More
Missouri law provides a specific procedure for making repairs and deducting the cost from the rent. At the very least, you should notify both the bank and the lawyer IN WRITING of the habitability issues that need to be addressed and your intention to repair and deduct. For detailed information on...View More

They have joint custody of their son, but my son has him 5 days or more out of the week! Their bank forclosed on... View More
If the divorce degree required her to help him with the mortgage, or to reimburse him for the outstanding debt, then your son can seek a motion for contempt, and demonstrate to the court that she has not paid what she has owed. Have your son speak to an attorney.
My Bankruptcy was discharged in late August. I would like for the bank to take my house ASAP. They had started foreclosure proceedings before I filed, so I know they probably will not sit on it forever, but it is December now and I want to move on. Are there any dangers in trying to do a deed... View More
Depends. Is it rural and does not have a street address? Does the notice give a legal description, a plat number, or something? Does the notice give sufficient information to identify the property in question? You should talk to an attorney about either getting an injunction, or setting aside the...View More
Part of the time depends on how quickly the lawfirm moves on the case, how quickly the sheriff can serve your summons, or if they use a private investigator, and the jurisdiction and how quickly they manage their landlord/tenant cases.
Something to consider. If you already have a...View More
