We are using the owners attorney to draft The contract. Is it normal for there to be buyers protection for fire, foundation falls in or any other uninhabitable disaster?

I was going to build a garage on back of the property hire company got permits pour the 24'x40' concrete slab two day after that neighbor came over and told me that we have restrictive covenants so i stop the project.
Initially you need to hire a competent KY attorney to search your Title. Carefully review any Restrictive Covenants, and determine what can be built without violating them. Remember it is up to others with a legitimate interest (and thus Standing) to sue you for an injunction. You might...Read more »
My wife and I had a piece of property in both of our names. If she died without a will, can I immediately deed it to someone or does it have to go through probate. If it didn't go through probate, will the deed be legal if I did it anyway?
You really need to speak with a probate attorney before you transfer anything. If the deed was held as joint tenants with right of survivorship, you probably can but you need to make sure there are no adverse ramifications if you do.
You must search your title first, then the tower's. If no conveyances or easements are found benefitting the cell people, then hire a very competent KY attorney to sue for Ejectment, Trespass, Breach of Warranties, amongst other causes of actions. The road may be a Prescriptive Easement...Read more »

I want to know who gets the house? I paid the down payment and every mortgage payment since we bought the house. I put her on the deed in case anything happened to me. So now that we are splitting up does she own any equity in the house that I have paid for?
She is apparently a titled owner of some type. If there is not sufficient equity, a Sale for Partition Action will not work. So you might want to offer her a few thousand for her Quit Claim Deed to you now. Have KY lawyer draft the proposed QCD.
Me and my wife are going through a divorce. She moved out of the house that we lived in about 3 1/2 four years ago. I still reside in the house and I have been keeping up with the upkeep and maintenance this entire time. She has not made a mortgage payment which is in her name only for the past... Read more »
