I cannot answer the question without an answer to the following:
1. When you say left money for grand kids and Dad used it to buy a house, it is critical what the Will said that left the grand kids the money. If it simply leaves money to Dad for the benefit of children, that is one thing....Read more »
I broke my lease at my last apartment to live with my now ex. He purchased a home and wanted me to come live with him, so I did. I legally changed my address and everything. I paid for utilities and calculated over 3 grand spent since I moved in, on renovations and appliances. A lot of verbal... Read more »
It doesn't sound like you had any contract regarding the money you chose to spend. You would have had to pay rent to live somewhere, so spending money on renovations while you were there is the same as paying rent.
That’s a good question. It sounds like the tax is an unconstitutional burden on interstate commerce because it unfairly discriminates against out of state taxpayers. It would seem fair if every owner of real GA property paid the tax because that’s where the property is. But to soak out of...Read more »
Probably--but not without agony--unless you agree to pay for some temporary shelter while the repairs are being made. Hiring some local person to keep an eye on thigs also makes sense--to landlords who have good tenants.
My mother and I are staying in a family home, which use to belong to my grandmother, along with my aunt (cousin’s mother) and uncle . We found out after an argument that the home belongs to my cousin now and it has since 2005 per me going to the courthouse to acquire the deed for more... Read more »
I'm not certain about your question. Since you are the executor of your husband's estate, I assume Letters Testamentary were issued to you. You are required to do whatever the will says do. If you are supposed to sell the home, then you simply sell the home. You do not need to be on the mortgage...Read more »
She has the key and alarm key fob for my home. Her belongings are taking up space. We have no written lease. She refuses to return phone calls or text messages. We have no way to communicate with her. How do we get her out of our home?
Verbal understandings regarding anything to do with real property--including rent--are unenforceable; neither she nor you is bound by whatever was agreed. However, to protect yourself I would change all the locks and start legal eviction proceedings.
We bought a house from a builder, he used a different company name to get our businesses but after we signed a contract we found that wasn't the real name. He also signed someone else's name on the contact, apparently the real owners name not his on the contract without noting it when he signed... Read more »
Your question is vague as to what real estate you're asking about.... his deceased mother's or real property your step-father and mother own jointly or separately. A competent attorney can answer your questions. Have all the pertinent facts readily available for the consultation.

My partner and I live together for 20 yrs and have 4 kids together. He has no job and income since 2002. I have been supporting his bills for 13 yrs. In 2014, I bought a land and built a house on it. I contributed 100% toward the purchase and added his name to the deed. After a year, I ended... Read more »
You cannot simply remove him from the deed. He would have to execute a deed in order to do this. Even if he did, the bankruptcy trustee may see this as a fraudulent conveyance and come after it for that purpose. He doesn't have to contribute anything to the asset to own it, which he apparently...Read more »
