My mortgage company admitted years later they... Read more »
I bought my house 2/2020 and put it up for sale 10/2020 not knowing this was not allowed as I have a RD loan- I used a Realtor and she wrote a bad land contract for the sale. The buyer does not pay as agreed and I want to do a forfeiture but don't trust myself to try alone and really... Read more »
The real estate agent and their broker may be responsible for writing a legal document as non -attorneys. With regards to your land contract being called due, lenders and banks usually have provisions in their mortgage that call a note due upon the conveyance of title. The issue is whether or not,...Read more »
We own a parcel of land across the state. We're part of a HOA, although our lot is separated by a half mile from the main grouping of homes that are on a cul-de-sac. The main grouping has voting rights on rules changes, but we do not. The HOA wants to change the Home Rental clause (think Air... Read more »
Next door neighbor owns a car (junk, not running); the car sits in the back yard between our houses. The car straddles the property line. It's been there for years. I want to clean up my back yard, get landscaping, and put up a fence. The car must be moved. But, my neighbor won't move... Read more »
IF (and that is a HUGE unknown!) the car is on your land, the neighbor is trespassing.
Are you 100% Absolutely Positively Undeniably CERTAIN of us on your land? You can have it removed but not necessarily onto the neighbor’s land — unless they neighbor consents to that. (You don’t...Read more »
You need to be in contact with your own attorney pronto. Whether it's necessary or insane isn't the question; is it legal? People lose houses for unpaid water bills and taxes that equate to a fraction of the home value. Likely, one of the remedies available for breach of contract for...Read more »
Currently, the general contractor on my residential project is filing an invalid lien on my property but he is not licensed. The subcontractor who performed the work is licensed but he is not filing the lien. Can he do this?
It was agreed I pay month to month after March as I was in the process of looking and buying a home, which I found in April and was moved in by May 2018. I moved out at the end of May notified the complex like agreed and left the keys, four years later I'm being sued for June and July rent,... Read more »
Did you sign a lease that obligated you to pay rent for a period of time that extended past the date on which you moved out? I suspect that there was a lease, and it went through July 2018. If so, the fact that you notified the landlord of your intention to move probably makes no difference.
One cannot determine in the abstract whether that’s sufficient. I would want to look at the whole document and entire transaction. One example of a phrase that would clarify that it runs with the land is “the easement runs with the land”.
On our mortgage paperwork at closing showed our principal/interest payment was $1,100. They said they miscalculated and said it’s now $1,500. They offered to pay $800 for the 2 months that were miscalculated. Just want to know if we are legally obligated to sign a new closing disclosure with new... Read more »
Without reviewing your whole closing package it is impossible to know what your situation is. Did you sign an ‘errors and Omissions’ addendum? What exactly is the ‘error’? Something with your escrow? Did you have an attorney review the paperwork before you closed? They might have caught the...Read more »
I need some advice. 19 months ago I had a house fire. The company hired to complete the repairs has been a nightmare. Many jobs were done without any input from us on material, improperly, and things are non-functioning. The project was supposed to be completed in 8 month and here we... Read more »
It sounds as if you may be concerned about the spouse's dower rights. Dower has been recognized as one of several legal protections provided to women. This was so that she would not be alienated from her primary residence. However, in 2017, Michigan ended dower. So it will depend when the...Read more »
Your question got cut off and isn't really a question.
HOWEVER, I can answer.
You need to take your lease and that notice to quit and records showing whether or not you have paid the lease as agreed to a local attorney ASAP. We can't provide an answer here because the...Read more »
My mother wants to pass the house on to me when she passes, but she also has the potential to be in long term care in the couple years. Will medicare take our house if she goes into long term care (or do they even currently have a lien due to my deceased father being in a nursing home)? How can we... Read more »
There are several ways to do this and MANY wrong ways.
A Quit claim deed is one but you need to appropriately record transfer affidavits and report the gift properly. There probably won’t be tax due but depending on how you structure things a return may be due. The rules are complicated...Read more »
winning in the courts. Our attorney filed a motion to enforce a mediation agreement without our permission and has other small missteps because he appears to want to be done yet we don't know if another attorney will take us. Our case is good.
We maintain the land and have only six feet easement beyond the road at that point in the easement. She shares the easement in that area. Since she benefits and there is no other place to put the snow, if the land I push over the embankment lands on her land is it illegal?
The simplest way is to execute a quit-claim deed to your daughter as grantee. However, you should consult with an attorney to explore the options available. Do you intend that she own the property outright, immediately? Do you intend to co-own it with her until your death so that she takes title...Read more »
