I just purchased a home with clear inclusion of two sheds on the RPR and the Contract. Upon moving in, paperwork was found in a cabinet in a pile left by the owner disclosing that one of the sheds is a rent to own with around 20 payments left. I have already loaded the shed with my personal... Read more »
This is something that an experienced real estate attorney should advise on, but your post remains open for three weeks.

Our by-laws dictate that the board must have an annual election meeting to elect board members. Because no new candidates announced their candidacy, the board decided not to hold the elections at the meeting and the current Board will remain until the next year.
In order to give an accurate answer, the By-Laws would have to be reviewed. Some By-Laws will allow the current board to remain in place until a meeting with the proper quorum is present to hold elections or other variations that could make your Board's actions go either way.
HOI is Home Owners Insurance. PIF could be paid in full. It sounds like they are asking for you to provide an invoice showing that your homeowner's insurance is paid in full. The simplest way to verify is to ask the bank to explain the acronyms to be sure.

How long has your spouse been there? etc. You should speak to a lawyer and provide more detail, before an...Read more »
I'm sorry for the loss of your mother. This would be governed by Puerto Rico law if the property is situated there. You could repost under Puerto Rico (click the linked text "Show More States"). Good luck
You will need to carefully review the terms and conditions of the contract.

Mortgage has 8 years left and the mortgage holder says, I have to pay all the interest on it, as if, I were to take the 8 years left to pay? I believe this is wrong and possibly illegal? Please advise.
Very likely yes. It's not about whether the landlord/owner is living in the building or space. It's about whether you are lawfully occupying the dwelling unit, has a valid lease, etc. If you are a lawful occupant, then any attempt by the owner/landlord to evict you for not-legally...Read more »
I don't see a question here, but the clause is not unique in commercial lease in NY. That's among the terms and conditions where lawyers for the parties involved negotiate vigorously for their clients.
The estate, citizen in the US, my brother and mother have no permanent residency. My brother signed a contract with a real estate behind my back. Does that contract is even valid provided I’m the one with Letters of Administration issued by the Queens Court. Also, when completing possible sale,... Read more »
