I am involved in a foreclosure action in NYS. The bank added a person who lived in my home, but had nothing to do with the mortgage, deed, or title, as a co-defendant in the foreclosure action. Can this person be removed from the lawsuit?
Much more information is needed to answer your question. Did your mother leave a surviving spouse? What does her will say? How much debt does she owe? Did she obtain any MediCal benefits before she passed?
Dear California Homeowner: If your contractor is licensed in the state of California, then you have three steps to take, in my opinion: (1) send a "legal demand letter" to the Contractor demanding they pay the supplier and any other suppliers/subs owed money within the next 72 hours (copy the...Read more »
with the neighbor next door that moved here in 2014. She put up a short chain link fence on the property line and says her property extends 2 feet into my rental property. There are 2 dead small pine trees 2 living pines about 40 feet tall and 1 foot circumstance. She says I planted the trees so I... Read more »
You are not responsible. If anybody is responsible, it would be your landlady. but I don't see why she would be responsible either. If the trees are on her property she should remove them, if she desires.
Should the homeowners speak with attorney? This is violation of Georgia privacy act seeings as none of the homeowners gave consent to release personal account information, to include name and delinquent amounts. The next day HOA sent an email to apologize but the damage is done.
House is in Pa. No will can be found. House Owned jointly by deceased and two surviving children. Third child died many years ago, never on the deed. Do the deceased daughter's children inherit anything?
Check the Vacant Land Disclosure Report provided to you by the Seller and see if they listed sewer and septic available in the Seller's Vacant Land Disclosure Report. It should be listed on page 5, under item F(6) of the new Vacant Land Disclosure Report that went into use last year. If they listed...Read more »
I bid as an owner occupant, through the listing agent, on a HUD property. I chose to be the back up offer and should have had my offer accepted. I was never informed as I should have been by HUD rules. An investor's bid (lower than mine) was then immediately accepted. I only discovered this 2... Read more »

You need to find member of final board of directors to sign a deed. You should consult with a title attorney as to requirements for your circumstances, otherwise you are probably looking at quiet title like lawsuit to gain full title
Yes. There is no legal requirement that you need to be a licensed real estate agent in order to use the term "real estate" in your company name. There are other restrictions against non agents, but this is not one of them.
She’s responsible for all costs associated with the home per the divorce decree. I have a perfect credit score and I really don’t want this to screw things up. She hasn’t paid it in 2 months. I’m really not sure how to go about this.
Short answer: Yes, it will hurt your credit. If your name is on the mortgage and it is being reported to the credit agencies, then as soon as that mortgage is reported as late that will be a ding on your credit. You can dispute your responsibility for the expenses with the agencies, but until...Read more »
My father passed away last year and in his will he left his house to his brother. Now his brother has passed away and the house is still in my father's name. I have 2 sisters and we are trying to figure out if the house is now our responsibility since the house hasn't been put in our decreased... Read more »
There is no way to answer your question without reviewing your father's will and knowing how much time passed between your father's death and your uncle's death. The will might or might not contain a survivorship requirement and, if your uncle survived long enough, then the house vested in him...Read more »
Although I am not up to speed on the current requirements as to when a Realtor can lawfully share commissions with another Realtor without actually being involved in the specific transactions I recommend taking the high road, like that required of Florida lawyers sharing legal fees with associates...Read more »

If I purchase a house after a legal separation in Maine, does my spouse have claim to it if it is in my name and I'm paying the mortgage. I am buying the house for her and my children to live in, as I am active duty military and she refuses to leave the state. I am doing this mostly to provide... Read more »
Under Maine law, the general rule is all property acquired by either spouse after the marriage and before a decree of legal separation is considered to be marital property regardless of whether title is held individually. Accordingly, one key question will be did you obtain a decree of legal...Read more »
You can ask t he lender to remove his name from the Note, but they are not going to do that without a payoff or a refinance (which is a payoff to them). You all are probably Tenants In Common, but you need to ascertain your exact estate. Read the Deed. There are also taxes and insurance, so...Read more »
My brother and a woman he was living with purchased a home together. The woman was however still legally married to her first husband at the time of purchase.

You did not disclose what State the land is in. And you did not state the exact estate created in the Deed. But most States Intestate Succession laws are similar. It sounds like your Brother was the surviving spouse and took the Fee. At his death, his Heirs-At-Law probably take as Tenants In...Read more »
I bought land from an individual who never went and filed the easement I actually didn't even know what an easement was until I put the land up for sale on the market and the realtor needed a copy of it I had to worry the original seller for four months just to get it and the original easement was...

I doubt the seller can get owners of other properties to execute a Deed of Easement for the benefit of your land. Suing for breach of warranties will be useless also. You probably have no choice but to either file suit in
Chancery Court to have an Easement Declared (which will be...Read more »
