I have 2 separate Abstract of Judgements placing liens on property my ex husband owned for back child support in El Paso County, Colorado. I recently discovered that a couple years ago the home on the property was destroyed in a wildfire. He collected 130 thousand dollars in insurance money is what... Read more »
I am not sure what you mean be "Abstract of Judgment". Usually you record a "Transcript of Judgment" in order to effect a lien on real estate. That needs to be renewed every 6 years. If you had a valid lien on the property, it may still be in effect. If not, you may be still...Read more »
Dear Recipient of Fraud Lawsuit by HOA: The general legal premise is that a FRAUD claim (or termed "cause of action", once a lawsuit is filed) is PERSONAL in nature. That means the cause of action survives the transfer of property, and a Quitclaim Deed transfer of the underlying property...Read more »
Our farm is in Garfield County Colorado. We have crossed the fence for years but I'm afraid neighbors may try and claim our land as theirs. I keep opening the gate for passage but now there's a lot of stuff wired over the gate opening from the far side of the fence, but still on our... Read more »
You either move the fence or acquiesce to the present fence being the boundary. You need an attorney to conduct title searches on both properties, and possibly file a Boundary Line Dispute. You will probably need a survey by a Surveyor who can testify in Court. You seem to know that the other...Read more »
The new owner got a bill and wants me to pay half. I did not know the roof was damaged when I sold the townhouse. The HOA sent out correspondence saying they recommend we change our insurance coverage when I still owned the townhouse, but I don't think they ever said there was damage to the... Read more »
Based on your facts you should not be responsible, but you may want to retain an attorney to deal with the attorney hired by the buyer. A little expense now could save a lot of hassle and expense in the future.
This depends on exactly what the divorce decree says. Do you get half of the profit or does she just need to refi/sell? You should consult with an attorney to review your paperwork and advise you how best to proceed.
Water leak & it’s under the laminate. Leak has been fixed but seller refuses to pull up flooring to allow subfloor to properly dry out to prevent mold then credit us for the resinstall so that property is in the same shape as when we signed the contract.
A Buyer has a right to receive the property in substantially the same condition as when the initial contract was created. If the property has been damaged between the contract and close dates, Buyer has a few options, i.e. close or not, and close and bring suit for damages after closing. Whether...Read more »
A contract is a contract...Nevertheless, if you wish to terminate the contract or anticipate that you will likely not be willing to perform, you should contact an attorney to fully explore your rights, remedies, and risks. That needs to be a conversation which will explore various facts so it is...Read more »
I have land for sale in Colorado and a very interested buyer from Oklahoma. They have seen a video of the property but they can't travel to see it themselves until May or June because of COVID-19. What is the best agreement to make to sell the property and accommodate them? A Right of First... Read more »
Contract Request: if I understand your question, you need a Purchase Contract (?) for real estate (?) with two buyers, and then a subsequent assignment of that contract (?). We offer Fixed Fee for transactional work of this nature. It would be less than $1000.00. But I'd really need to get a...Read more »
This is dependent upon the specific language in the Covenants. Generally, an HOA would have the right to demand the owner spray and to enter and spray if the owner fails or refuses and to fine owner and assess costs to owner. But, you should get a specific reading of your documents before you...Read more »
Can you postpone the closing without penalty? If you can get the Seller to agree to an extension, yes. However, if Seller will not agree then you can refuse to close and will likely suffer the loss of your earnest money and any other penalties which the contract contemplated.
I am under contract to sell my condo, and the Buyer is sending a notice to terminate the contract because they don't like the HOA interaction they have had with some questions. Is that grounds for them to terminate in Colorado? Seems like a weak argument.
They talked me into selling my timeshare as they had a buyer already for it. I had to send a fee (I never should have done this I know!) of $6,000, then I sent money 2 more times for a total of $22,628 to a title closer at Colorado Title. This is a legitimate business and they stole all of my money... Read more »
I've had run-ins with this same company. I found that it is not a legitimate company and doesn't even exist other than virtually. Please shoot me an email or give me a call if you'd like more information. I'm teaching much of the day today, but will get back to you as soon as possible.
I purchased land on October 29th, 2018 and on the memo line I wrote "purchase of 40 acres balance approximately 41,000". The total price was 121,000.00 and I put 80,000.00 down and rest to be paid at closing. Seller hears that I have an enormous offer and begins figuring a way to... Read more »
Is it good enough? It is certainly better than nothing. It is likely that the check along with testimony will be sufficient to prevail. You have an an issue that all contracts for the purchase and sell of real estate in CO must be in writing, as such if the opposing smells a big profit you need...Read more »
