You need to seek out local legal help not the TV news.
Acting under a Po A involves honoring the 'fiduciary duty' to act in the principal's best interest. It sounds like that may not have been what happened here, but without exploring facts that would not be appropriate in a public forum...Read more »

Yes, the attorney can obtain a writ of eviction. Your appeal was dismissed, and so the judgment issued in January remains valid. The original date to obtain a writ of eviction is simply a waiting period; in other words, the landlord must wait until that date to obtain a writ of eviction, but he or...Read more »
Without knowing why you are being evicted, it's hard to say what your defense may be. If you are in a special housing situation (e.g. "Section 8"), you may have some additional protections. Best thing you can do - especially since you say you have limited income - is to take your Notice to Quit to...Read more »
It's in a seasonal campground and the park owner wants it renovated, removed or demolished. I want nothing to do with it. Also, the park owner misplaced my mother's lease. Can I take the belongings and walk away?
Yes. Even if mom’s will says the house is supposed to go to husband and brother, assuming she’s mentally competent she can still sell it to you and husband. If she does, then the house would no longer be part of her estate; instead her right to receive land contract payments as land contract...Read more »

I'm in the process of acquiring my parents home. They remortgaged it in 2004. Now I'm being contacted by someone who is threatening me saying that the title company wants the additional plot of land added with the house. Do I have to listen to him or can I just leave it as is? I've been talking... Read more »
If the additional parcel and it's legal description was included in valuation of the property for the mortgage lender, then it should be included in the mortgage and encumbered by the same. If the title company 'missed" this parcel and this description initially, you may still have to correct this...Read more »
You should contact the realtor's broker to register you complaint. That's where you should start. The board of real estate has a grievance procedure as well. If all else fails, you might want to file a complaint with the Michigan's professional licensing division - LARA.
She was told she had to sign paperwork in January even though she leases August to August. Now that she has found a house to buy, they said she can’t get out of the lease agreement even though it doesn’t begin until August 2019. She’s been there for many years and she goes through this...

The written lease should specify exactly when it will come up for renewal, as well as what happens if the tenant does not renew at the time designated. Most leases come up for renewal about 60 days before the end date; and some leases will allow tenants to "holdover" after the end date--but only at...Read more »

My husband and I met a Realitor who helped us find a house. We gave her a deposit and app fee. We never heard back from the Agent with an approval or denial. We found out that the money order was cashed, and we still have not received keys, approval, or a denial. Is this illegal? Do we have a... Read more »
It sounds like you're talking about a Realtor who helped you to find a rental home, as opposed to buying. It may not be illegal for the Realtor to cash the check. The Realtor, whether an agent for the landlord or for you, holds the funds in escrow/trust. But if you have not been approved for the...Read more »

The divorce decree is binding between you and your ex-spouse, and isn’t binding on the mortgage company. So they have the right to continue reporting the loan as yours, until it’s paid in full. That’s the first part.
But the second part is whether the loan documents you signed...Read more »
You must first determine how the home was sold into someone else's name if your dad owned it (by a recorded deed) on the day he passed. Is it possible that someone else's name was also on that deed? If so, the house would pass to that person or persons regardless of what the will says.
She says to find a house within $65k budget. We did, and there was cash to spare. So she gave us the rest of the money. During the process she kept saying she didn’t want to be part of it because it’s our house and as long as we stay within budget it’s not her business.
