Mr. James Parrish Coleman's answer You need some legal help here. You are charged with reading what you signed. You say you were tricked? How? If you did sign the documents under duress maybe you have an out here. You must get a lawyer and sue to overturn the conveyance.
Daniel Anthony Testa III's answer If the Deed is not in their names the Will must be probated through surrogates court. The cost and length of the probate process will depend on the complexity of the estate.
Leonard R. Boyer's answer There is an insufficient factual basis to answer your questions and address your concerns. You need to rewrite your statement in the form of a meaningful question for someone to be able to provide useful ideas. Good luck.
Mr. James Parrish Coleman's answer If you can "remove" her from the deed or not depends on the language of the deed and the nature of her ownership of the property. If she was a joint tenant with your siblings in the property and she died, her ownership of the property belongs to her heirs at law or her divisees in her Will. If there is survivor-ship language in the deed, then the property could already belong to the rest of you and then you don't have to do anything.
Mr. James Parrish Coleman's answer I assume that you are attempting to purchase property and the seller says it is waterfront property and you say it is not. First, look at the survey and legal description of the property It should be definitive on the question of "waterfront" property. Were you in a contract to purchase the property? If so, enforce it.
If not -- the seller can ask whatever he wants for the property for any reason -- good, bad, false or not.
Mr. James Parrish Coleman's answer If you built something that altered the natural flow of the water and made the water go onto the property of your neighbor, then you would be liable in trespass for diverting the water to your neighbor. This is an fact driven issue, and an expert would have to take a look at your shed and see if it has diverted the flow of the water. If it has, you may well be liable. Her option is to sue you, not to persist in calling you. Go see a lawyer and get him or her to address this with your neighbor,...
Mr. James Parrish Coleman's answer First question. Was the house new when you bought it or not? If it was new, you might have a lawsuit here. The questions of defective construction etc. would come into play.
If it was not new, did you ask specifically about settling or anything of the sort? If you did, and the seller lied to you, you may have a lawsuit. Otherwise, you have no legal recourse.
Julie A. Rice's answer Did you have a written contract with the buyer? If so, then you have 4 years in which you can sue the former potential damages. If there was no written contract, then the statute is 6 years. Most likely you are going to have to hire an attorney so I would be careful not to throw good money after bad.
Julie A. Rice's answer First, the relative has to own the land so a title search is in order. Second, the relative should have a warranty deed so use the legal description of the property from that warranty deed and create a new warranty deed and then file it with the clerk of court.
Julie A. Rice's answer Unfortunately, a bill of sale is not enough. You should have been given a deed and the deed should have been taken to the court house and filed. It sounds like this is now a criminal matter because the original "owner" took your money and ran. Report this activity to your local District Attorney.
Richard Samuel Price's answer Your issue seems to be with the management company, rather than the tenant. If the tenant is under a lease agreement, then you will not be able to terminate the lease, except as provided in the lease agreement. You'll probably have to wait for the lease term to terminate, or negotiate a shorter term with the tenants and pay their relocation costs.
However, your property manager has a fiduciary duty to act in your best interests. If they leased out the property without your consent...
Richard Samuel Price's answer It depends on the terms of the contract. You'll have to review your contract in detail and discuss with your real estate agent, if you have one. Usually, you will be able to terminate the purchase of the home and get your deposit back if you are within your contingency period.
Richard Samuel Price's answer You can go down to your local planning department and discuss the zoning of your property and requirements for a single family residence. A civil engineer would be a good resource to help with the process.
Richard Samuel Price's answer You have the right of lateral support from your neighbor and if your land subsides because of the excavation, then you will be entitled to damages. But until your land subsides, you don't have any damages. Your neighbor is entitled to develop his property according to his building permits.
Richard Samuel Price's answer It really depends on a lot of facts, however, generally a tenant can exclude someone else from entering the property unless there is a common area. A very practical solution is to ask your neighbor to not cross your backyard.
Thomas H. Roberts Esq's answer 1st - you should make the check payable to both. Assuming you failed to do so, what is the consequence? You would have to contend that making the check payable to only one was still compliant because the one was acting as an agent for the other as well. 2nd - hand delivery instead of mailing is not going to be considered a "material breach" as the party obviously received the money. The last question is not at all clear. It is advisable that a business or person retain records of loans...
Thomas H. Roberts Esq's answer Yes. But if I am correct, there is more to your question. In the event that your current marriage ends by divorce how will the house be treated? The equity in your house at the time of your marriage will be considered your sole and separate property. Taking that equity out and using it will of course result in the loss of the sole and separate property, unless it remains separate and traceable. Marital money (money acquired during the course of the marriage) used to pay the mortgage will be...
