Michael David Siegel's answer Your real estate attorney is right. However, the lien is only on the part of the property belonging to that child, not the whole property. The proceeds for that child must go to pay the judgments. There are work arounds as long as the child is cooperative, and the attorney should have discussed these before talking to the title company.
Elaine Shay's answer Your best bet is to move forward expeditiously with the eviction process. In the meantime, you should consult with the attorney handling your landlord/tenant matter regarding obtaining access.
Elaine Shay's answer The rights of the landlord to access an occupied apartment can be impacted by the provisions in a lease as well as the purpose for desired access. More information would be useful to provide a relevant response.
Elaine Shay's answer It isn't clear from your question what type of situation you are referring to by reference to a court appointed transactional attorney. Was the property in receivership? Was a guardian appointed? Was there a foreclosure sale? Was an administrator or executor appointed by Surrogate's Court? In most cases, the court order making the appointment will provide the answer you are looking for.
Elaine Shay's answer Federal laws do not generally set occupancy limits on real property in the various states. Instead the more relevant question would be what are the local laws pertaining to the issue... many may be found in local building code laws and regulations.
Michael David Siegel's answer You owe it, or there will be a tax foreclosure. The bank might pay it, but if they have not yet, the bank is not likely to do so in the future. The tax foreclosure goes like a regular foreclosure.
Jonathan David Warner's answer No, not generally, but sometimes a Judge will grant some *limited* timeline (a few weeks, maybe) for you to vacate the property.
For what it's worth, and with all due respect, this is almost definitely not the first notice you've received. If you want to protect your children, it's best not to ignore these Court notices and to move out of your home quickly. While moving is not always easy, it's better to do so on your own terms - and without the Sheriff's deputies forcibly evicting you...
Kelli Y Allen's answer From an immigration law standpoint, as long as you are not doing anything to earn the income, you're fine. So you can own property, invest in stocks, etc. but you can't be "working".
Peter Klose's answer I am sorry your deal did not occur. Although it is difficult to tell from your post, it sounds as though you were the "buyer" of real property in New York. As your attorney likely told you, New York is a caveat emptor (buyer beware) state. That means, between you, your inspectors, your title company, your attorney, and your other "advisers" you MUST find out whether the house is marketable, safe, comes in the condition you expected, and has the correct municipal approvals. If it does not,...
Peter Klose's answer In my view, the issue is not what the bank thinks, but whether there is a Certificate of Occupancy or other governmental approval for the bathroom "improvement." You should check with the building department of the local municipality to be sure that there are sufficient C/Os for the improvements made to this 1/2 bath.
