Ex wife's aunt and uncle passed on with no will or children. They have custody papers for my ex as they raised her. But they never adopted her. After she left I continued to live on the property for nearly 2 years until they passed away. It's been 1 year since both passed and I still live on the... Read more »
We are interested in a new home, but need to sell our current home 1st. Builder offered us 100k to pay off our home(we owe 83k) so that we can get the loan to buy the house he’s building.

Her name is on the deed under my father's for the condo. He purchased the condo directly from his retirement account so he did pay for it himself. She is under the impression that it's hers now and she wants to sell it and leave us with nothing from the condo.
As it stands right now, you are both owners and both are therefore liable for the ongoing maintenance fees. If you don't want it, you could offer it to your ex-wife. In many cases I've had, I usually help communicate with the ex-spouse to determine who will take ownership. In the alternative, I've...Read more »
but because my credentials were not good enough to get the loan, she wanted to help me out. So I gave her ALL FEES and paid the full mortgage on time religously, with the agreement that once I got my credit score up and stabilized my job I would take possession of the house by either assuming the...

Who is on the mortgage is irrelevant, if she is on the deed and you are not and there is no formal written agreement in place - it is likely her house not your house. You need to consult with a local attorney but there is likely not much you can do. This is a prime example of why this type of...Read more »

I currently owe 150k on my house. I have an interested buyer at 500k. At closing the buyer will put down 150k to pay off existing mortgage and I will carry the loan of 350k@4% for 30 years. My question is if for some reason the buyer at some point gets a second mortgage/equity loan from a separate... Read more »
I own some land. I know someone that has promised to buy it. Is there any type of document that could be drawn up that allows me an advance of the price the buyer has promised before time of sale so that at time of sale the amount would be less en bloc. E.g. promised 30,000. I ask to have 5,000... Read more »
Probably. Have you already entered into a written sales contract? You state that the potential buyer "promised to buy it." In North Carolina, all contracts or agreements to sell or convey land must be in writing to be enforceable.
There are a few ways to accomplish your goal and...Read more »
With no will, the spouse will receive the first $30,000.00 of personal property, one-third of the remaining personal property and one-third of all real property. Her children will evenly split the remaining two-thirds (2/3) of personal property and real estate. So if the estate is small enough,...Read more »

If the limbs crossed over into your neighbors property she can likely cut them as long as it doesn't kill the tree. Your best bet is to consult with a local attorney and start costing her money as well. Usually after getting spanked in the wallet a couple of times, neighbors start keeping to...Read more »
My husband and I can't agree on several important issues, including income requirements for our family, and I'm planning to file for divorce, giving up the home to him in the decree. Given the possibility of a lengthy divorce, I'd like to remove my name from the deed before filing so that I can... Read more »
You can certainly file a quit claim deed releasing you from the property. However, you'd likely be giving up a major source of leverage against him in the divorce if you plan to do this before filing. Also, it seems you are likely still living together in the house. If so, you will not be...Read more »
If a person who is no longer married dies, then that person's natural or adopted children would inherit the person's property in equal shares. If any of those children are no longer living, the children of that deceased child would inherit their deceased parent's share. See Subsection (A) of...Read more »
My wife and I divorced 2 years ago. We both signed a quit claim deed in front a notary, "giving her the house" which was never filed in court or anything, she still has possession of it. She has still not sold the house, or taken my name off of the loan. I am still paying the mortgage. We made... Read more »
I assume you did not have an attorney, as no attorney worth their salt would have allowed you to sign a quit claim deed while still on the mortgage. Hopefully there is something in the divorce judgment that addresses this issue or you are for lack of a better word very likely screwed....Read more »
You may be able to sue to enforce the clear terms of the contract. If the roof repairs were described in that contract, you should contact a local real estate attorney to learn what action you may be able to take to seek relief.
