My girlfriend and I have lived in a home together for 7 years in Iowa. We recently split up and I am living in the home. I am on home title/deed, but I am not on the mortgage. My ex is the sole mortgage holder. I am paying her the monthly mortgage. We have a written agreement that is notarized that... View More
Girlfriend is not the mortgage holder. That is the lender and whoever signed the note is personally liable to them. Whoever signed the mortgage is the mortgagee. The mortgage probably has a due on sales clause which might be violated by executing your agreement. Then foreclosure might occur....View More
I'm a Singapore citizen who owns a boarding house in Jefferson County, IA. The property was being managed by a local friend while I left the country for an overseas job. Last year, my friend had to move to Chicago and chose one tenant to take care of the property, which was the start of a lot... View More
Hire someone local to the property such as an attorney to act as the property manager/landlord. Have him file suit for eviction of the occupants. It can be difficult, may require your appearance in Court, or will involve the Sheriff removing them. Then have the manager sell the property or rent...View More
Hello, My daughter has a house that she bought with an ex-boyfriend (never married). When they split up, they signed a contract saying she had 100% posession to the house for 5 years (until Mar 2023 - when the grant for 1st time home buyer ends). After that, she has 1st chance on refinancing/buying... View More
It’s a VA loan and I’m the qualifying veteran. The loan requires the property to be my primary residence but she refuses to refinance and take me off the loan. Also I signed a quit claim during the divorce
All notemakers will have to agree to the modification. However what did the Divorce order? If it required a conveyance and a refinance, then file an action to hold her in contempt. If the VA discovers any breach of the security instrument it might get the lender to foreclose, so be careful.
The property is in Iowa and it is owned by two family members. We just need clarification if permission is needed from both owners before anyone can hunt, fish, or ride four wheelers on the property. Thank you.
Either Tenant In Common can prohibit you from hunting on the property. So it would be much better to get written permission from all owners. One owner might not know about the other giving permission and put you in jail. You want to keep both owners happy. Game Wardens will also want permission...View More
You certainly can demand consideration for your conveyance. But you have not stated the exact estate you have. If the agreed monies are not provided to you, do not sign. The other owner could file a Partition Action against you to sell the property.
Not sure of your question. But it sounds like you are trying to convey your interest by Quit Claim Deed to the grantee subject to the mortgage. Unless the grantee assumes the mortgage, he is not personally obligated on the note debt, but the property is the collateral subject to foreclosure. And...View More
We recently had to move cities due to a new job but are still paying on our apartment in the old location because our lease is not up yet. Our apartment company notified us that they are changing ownership and that all rent needs to be paid to the new owners starting immediately. Because our lease... View More
I was purchasing the home from my landlord on contract I’m fine with losing that money it’s not worth it especially since he’s filing bankruptcy. The auction is coming up soon. I would like to know how much time I have (if any) after the auction?
I did not find any emails from them until I looked at my spam so it looked like I was avoiding them. I informed them by email that I was waiting for my tax return because I saw that there was a one-time Maintenance increase for an owner agreed on repairs. I have asked them to work with me but...

If they never sent you paper bills, you may have an argument that they did not give you notice. If that does not work, you may have an attorney negotiate with the collection agency. Most timeshare companies use the same collection companies. I've found that they'll typically negotiate on...View More
You owed no duty to warn a trespasser but you do owe them reasonable warnings when you are aware people use a path across your land. The answer to your question lies in the details. As the saying goes, the devil lies in the details. Your question doesn't really provide much detail and so...View More
This question can't be answered through this service. The contract would have to be reviewed. Details of the underlying situation would have to be gathered. To get competent, useful advice, you'll likely need to schedule a meeting with an attorney.
