I would advise having an attorney draw up the deed just to make sure everything is done properly but yes you can draw up the deed and it should be signed in front of a notary. All spouses will have to sign as well.
My mother left 63 acres to my sister and I but failed to divide it. What steps do i take to secure my share of acres in my name and how do I request the acres I prefer. Do I need a attorney to represent me in this matter?
Hire a NC attorney to search the title and determine ownership. It may be easy to draft two legal descriptions, but you will probably need to survey it for two tracts. Then each heir conveys the applicable tract to the other, in two Deeds.

I have a property in NC that was managed by a property manager. The previous tenant had to be evicted, and has a debt of $10,000. I'm no longer working with that property manager, and would like to send the debt for collections. The property manager refuses to disclose with me any personal... Read more »
Generally speaking, most of your tenant's information should have been in the eviction file at the courthouse, which is public record. If your tenant was a business then their information should be on the NC secretary of states webpage. I would advise hiring an attorney in the county where the...Read more »
Without seeing the entire contract, I could not speculate on the legality of the non-refundable clause. It will also depend on whether or not the dance studio is alleging that you breached one of their terms. I would advise sitting down with a local attorney and seeing what they think of the case...Read more »
Had contact to build fence. Made payment. Contractor died. Wife said she would include our claim. Numerous text messages. Finally I called courts. No probate case filed in his county of residence. Inform wife and now she isn’t responding. Can I sue his unfurled estate for my deposit?
Once 90 days since the death has passed, any interested party can open the estate and apply to be the administrator. However, you will likely have to post a bond, and the wife can claim the first $60,000 in the estate before any creditors get paid. I don't know how much your deposit was, but...Read more »
Long story short: He sexually abused my daughter, threatened to kill me over a misunderstanding, has been convicted (juvenile), is on probation in a sex-offender treatment facility for the last year and a half, and will turn 18 March 24th of this year. He already told me he will most likely... Read more »
If you think he will harm your daughter again if he returns, you CANNOT let him back in the home. You may need to contact Child Protective Services, and let them know the situation. Perhaps they can find a foster home for him. Financially, you and his father are still responsible for him. CPS may...Read more »
You can leave the house anytime you want. You will still be liable to pay the loan, however. If there is a substance abuse issue, there are other ways to force him to leave (if the right facts apply). Consult with a family law attorney about your options, and take that opportunity to have a...Read more »
Generally speaking, when a company is bought, the buyer assumes all debts and liabilities of the selling company. I would advise contacting the new company and seeing if they will honor the warranty; if not, you should contact your homeowners insurance and they will hire an attorney on your behalf.
It depends on what breach of the lease they are using as a basis for the eviction. If you paid fully and timely, then your landlord likely cannot evict you for failing to pay rent. However, they can still evict you for other breaches of the lease.
Hired a contractor and he advised me there is a structural issue. The previous owner removed 3/4 structural poles from basement to make it one large room and never reinforced the structure.

I cannot advise you on what your insurance may cover, and you will have to call them and ask that question. However, it sounds like you have a valid lawsuit against the home inspector. I advise contacting a local lawyer and have them give you a complete assessment of your situation. Be aware that...Read more »
The short answer is YES. It is perfectly fine and common for authors to be identified by pseudonyms (for instance, Dr. Seuss was actually Theodor Seuss Geisel). The copyright in the book by a pseudonymous author is registered in the author's real name, and legal transactions such as...Read more »
A North Carolina attorney could advise best, but your question remains open for two weeks. Your post did not include a question, but it is clear you are wondering what to do. An attorney in any jurisdiction would probably want to know more before offering any input. Are you represented by an...Read more »
Without seeing the actual order, I cant tell you how to access it. Generally speaking, you would take a certified copy of the order to the bank or other entity and that would allow her to withdraw the money or transfer the interest. But once she has the money it is her money.
You are describing what sounds like a pour-over will. It means that the testator wants all of his property to be administered by the terms of his (or their) trust. The best practice is to transfer all property to the trust during lifetime. The pour over will is only there to catch things that...Read more »
