Bought a house and closed last Friday. Started renovating the master bath and found extensive termite damge and plain as day visible signs that they had termites. It's obvious someone knew about this issue at some point becaust they had the house treated and the termites aren't in the house... Read more »
Although I have not had a chance to review all the documents involved in the purchase and sale referred too it appears to me that you may be miss-interpreting the contract with respect to the existence--vel non--of termites. Unless the
contract(s) specifically say there is no termite...Read more »
I live in a Florida Condominium Association (+300 units and +$1 million budget) under the authority of Fla. Sta. 718. Does a contract entered between the Association and the Management Company (CAM) have to be in writing?
No, not legally--but if I was the association's part-time lawyer I would strongly advise the HOA not ever to hire any person or corporation to perform any of the regulated activities incumbent upon them as a CAM. All the written CAM agreements I have prepared for Condo associations and HOAs all...Read more »

On April 27, 2019 the neighbor was sent a registered letter requesting the removal of structure, she secretly sold property to someone else who is refusing to honor our request. We are looking for legal assistance.
The sale is unlikely to have affected your rights. This is not a situation which can be solved in a question and answer forum such as this. You will need to have an attorney review the specifics of the encroachment. A lawsuit may be required.
I was out of the state temporarily and at which I missed 2 quarter HOA payment for January and April 2019 fees at $90 each for a total of $180. Upon returning in June, I found out I have mails about my delinquent account. I immediately tried to resolved it following up with the HOA management... Read more »
Currently I'm the buyer in an owner finance agreement and have missed my August payment. This is the only payment I have missed. I informed the sellers that I would be making a late payment, including my late fees as soon as my check from my new job comes in on the 28th. The sellers then told me... Read more »
The mortgage bank (Wells Fargo)will not allow any modified (smaller) payments, will not work out any forbearance plan until the total amount past due is paid first. The home just went into foreclosure. As homeowners can we still put the house for sale and pay off the bank loan before the house is... Read more »
You need to get it sold before the foreclosure sale, and a lawyer can often get the bank to wait for a sale. If the mortgage is greater than the sale price, it is called a short sale, and that is also possible. You need to move on it responsibly now, but you do not need bank consent unless they...Read more »
I am not able to pay the mortgage due to waiting for opers benefits and for his family's attorney to get everything put into my name. i need to know what i can do before our house is taken from us. Was planning on paying off mortgage once i received his opers benefits.
I live in Carbon County I was put on a payment plan for my 2017 taxes and I lost my job I called up and tax Bureau and Jim Thorpe and told them the situation and they said if I don't make that $312 payment that I need to come up with $2,500 to pay my 2018 and the 312 that I owe if somebody can...

They shouldn't but they do. Your remedy is to bring a small claims action to contest this. Due to the time and expense and the likelihood that you will not find an attorney willing to take a case like this landlords get away with it.
I would have to examine the instruments to really know. But it sounds like it is just sale contract terms which incorporate the note and deed of trust terms (obligations), which of course exist after the closing (final execution) of the sale contract. Apparently this is an owner financed land...Read more »
We have been living here since 1993 but our home is on my in laws property. We have been paying a portion of their land taxes and our property taxes and maintaining the property since then. Family is feuding and land possibly being sold or foreclosed on, we don’t know what to do and need to know... Read more »
I am sorry, but you are asking a very broad question and there aren’t enough facts provided to answer it. This is potentially a very complex situation. I would suggest you consult with a qualified real estate attorney to obtain some advice specific to your situation.
I signed a lease to rent a home with my mother approx. 5 years ago. The lease was up after one year and we did not renew. We stayed in the home paying rent on a month to month basis. I moved out 2 years ago. Recently my mother fell behind on the rent and the landlord issued a summons against the... Read more »
At a minimum, you should update the mailing address on file with the county assessor's office, assuming address to which you would like tax statements mailed has changed since your mother died. If the trust document states that title to the house must be transferred out of the trust you will want...Read more »
How much time we have to give our landlord before we can move out? Our lease says nothing about what happens at the end of the lease or if it expires. It also says nothing about a set amount of time we need to give her before we move out. It’s very barebones it seems.
Assuming your rent was due every month (e.g., on the first day of each month) you would have a month-to-month tenancy following the expiration of the agreed upon lease term. Because nothing is mentioned in your lease regarding notice, the default rule is that you may terminate your tenancy by...Read more »
