My ex lied to my landlord and told them that I gave him the deposit to move it to his next lease starting August 1st. Since I paid the original deposit and he is starting a new lease, shouldn’t I be the one that receives it back?
If your ex is lying to your landlord, there is a good chance they may also be lying to you. If you have the same landlord and you are now trying to convince them to return your deposit, this may have to be resolved in court if the landlord refuses to return your deposit. I suspect there are...Read more »

Negotiate that term with the seller. You will not be the owner until after the consummation of the sale. If the seller refuses to deliver unoccupied, you may well have to engage an attorney to assist you with the eviction.
If the value is such that it is not in your interest to consummate the deal, one of your options may be to cancel the sale. This will depend on the conditions you wrote in the P&S agreement. Consult with an attorney to evaluate your position.

Speak to an attorney to discuss the impact of what you are considering. It may turn out that what you need is a will. There are tax implications you should consider as well. There are ways to achieve what you desire without having to give the house to him all at once.
The deed states tenancy in its entirety with both out names listed. When we divorced he was to remortgage within a year, that was 2008. He did not until 2016. Also he never pushed me to do a quit claim because he said he did not plan to marry again. I am not listed on the new mortgage only the deed.
