Both my ex-wife and I are on papers sent by law firm. So both need to sign. However, since divorce we both have different last names than what is on paper work sent by law firm representing time share. Is this an issue? If we do quit claim are we still required to pay $1800.
I imagine that you already have this wrapped up, but just in case I would usually recommend signing if you don't want to be owners anymore. You should not have to pay the $1800 unless it is stipulated in the cancellation agreement.
Those are documents that: a) a purchaser would typically take subject to; and b) are readily available in the public records; and c) would be swiftly disclosed as part of the title search. So I would be quite surprised if a purchaser would have grounds to cancel the contact based upon same.
You should have a lawyer help you with the divorce. At first blush, I would say that it is unlikely you will have a stake in the house. If your mother-in-law transferred the husband to your soon to be ex and you paid for part of that bargain, you may be able to make the argument but I would not...Read more »

We signed a contract to sell our house 4 months ago. Our realtor has not been very helpful in selling our home (1 open house in 4 months).

Absent some recording of the agreement, likely not. Under certain circumstances, you may be able to exercise the right to buy this individual's share before any other seller - but this is case dependent.

It sounds like you have a year lease and you make monthly payments. Month-to-month means you or the landlord can terminate the lease with a month notice, but if you have a contractual right to the property for a year, then it doesn't sound like you have a month-to-month lease. The outcome...Read more »

Check the terms of the contract. Usually they have an "opt-out" or similar clause. You can also simply agree to cancel the contract. I suggest consulting with an attorney - a review of your particular facts and the contract will provide you with the best guidance.
Generally speaking, contracts for the sale of land must be in writing to be enforced. There are exceptions to this rule. You should consult with an attorney to get an answer specific to your situation.
