Adverse possession is a defense, not a claim. If you have possessed the property openly adversely continuously and hostilely for 20 years in Maryland, the title owner may not maintain an action to eject you. There is no "adverse possessing a building." Until the 20 years passes, you own...Read more »
To give a clear answer an attorney would first need to verify the titling of the existing deed. Assuming the parents owned as "tenants by the entirety," title would legally be in the surviving father's name after his wife died. If the surviving parent owner wants to make sure...Read more »
The solution to your issue depends on your status as an occupier of the land. How did you enter the property? Are you a tenant with a lease? One without a lease? Did the owner invite you? Did you enter via trespass? What is your relation to the owner?
House was legally auctioned off at tax sale and the plaintiff is in the process of foreclosing the right to redemption. Current owner (defendant) of the house has no mortgage; the deed is in their name alone. This house/owner has a child support lien on it by the State of Maryland for over $30,000... Read more »
Property tax liens tend to have super priority, meaning they stand first in line before most other kinds of liens. This means that in most cases, if proper notice is given, a tax sale foreclosure case wipes out the other liens and transfers the property free and clear of lesser liens....Read more »
It depends on the facts, but one might look to the provenance of the signature using a handwriting expert or the circumstances of the signing. I had one case where the signature was attacked by investigating the notary seal, which turned out to be forged. There are many sets of facts, and it is the...Read more »

Your mom passed in 2015, and you never once in 5 years asked about her belongings? The house only sold this past October? I think any court would find you waited too long to assert your rights, and the property left in the house was abandoned. An estate should have been opened for your mother,...Read more »
My friend put in an offer on a house more than 60 days ago. When they asked the seller about it (seller became elusive) they came back and said they want to wait and see if more offers come in first. Is this allowed?
it says: " Within 45 days after the end of the tenancy, the landlord shall return the security deposit to the tenant together with simple interest which has accrued at the daily U.S. Treasury yield curve rate for 1 year, as of the first business day of each year, or 1.5% a year, whichever is...

For many years the statute required that landlords return at 3% interest, even if they were earning 1/10th of 1%. This law was changed in recent years to be somewhat more reflective of current interest rates and more favorable to landlords because it cut the minimum interest in 1/2....Read more »

Your question lacks basic facts. Unless you have a court order granting you a deed on the basis of "adverse Possession," you remain a trespasser. You have to go to court and prove the adverse possession claim.

Anybody can sue for anything. All it requires is a pen, a piece of paper, and the filing fee ... and, sometimes, a crayon has been substituted for the pen. What you are trying to ask is whether the listing agent can win, and that depends on what your listing agreement says and whether than...Read more »
I'm sorry. This question makes no sense at all. You need to retain someone to help you write a question. I do not understand how the concept of a work permit interconnects with the concept of adverse possession. You need a work permit to perform certain types of work on real estate, and you...Read more »
Thank you for answering my last question. The estate is currently closed and has gone through probate and was closed many years ago.The personal representative's lawyer sent a letter certified mail saying that if the heir living in the home does not willingly agree to sell the home as an heir...

My prior answer stands. The answer depends on whether the estate is open and who is in title on the home. If this is related to the other question I saw in which a probate was closed many years ago in PG County but the house was not transferred, then it may be necessary to reopen the probate to get...Read more »
An elderly disabled person is being forced out of his home that he lived in all of his life by the personal representative. The home had been closed with probate many years ago, and it's still closed, but the personal representative has now decided to sell the home after all this time. The... Read more »
Your posting does not provide sufficient information for a reliable response, and I suggest that you review all of the facts with counsel during a consult. If the house is titled to the decedent, and there is an open estate with a qualified PR, there is no need for a complaint for sale in lieu of...Read more »
By “campuses,” I’m going to assume you are referring to the common use of the word referring to the collected buildings of a university, college, or other openly used area of property in which a large community collects for an educational or other purpose. If that is so, then you are there...Read more »
Buyer wants to acquire property to use as an office in Oldtown, MD (Allegany County). The buyer wants to own the property in fee simple. I know that installment contracts give legal title to the seller (vendor) and equitable title to the buyer (vendee). But besides installment contracts, I could... Read more »
I'm not sure what you are asking. An installment sales contract -- or one of another half dozen or so types of documents -- is the contract describing the transfer. It does not transfer title. That is accomplished in a closing. The name of the title recipient is often specified in the...Read more »
Squatting is a slang term for the legal status of Adverse Possession. Anything to do with Trespassing is not Adverse Possession because the Defendant is cognizant that someone else is entitled to exclusive possession of the premises.
In 2008 my home had a lien put against it due to a credit card debt with Citibank. In 2017, I tried to show a bank that I paid off the debt but Citibank has no record of the account. I was still able to get a loan despite the lien but in the future this will still be a problem especially if I... Read more »
