Not sure of your question. But twenty years of continuous use over your land gives them an easement by prescription. You need to search both yours and their titles, as there may be an express easement of record possibly specifying maintenance.
Read your listing contract. There is usually a term requiring the commission to be paid if there is a sale within the contract period. Even then the agent must sue you for the commission. Hire a competent attorney to read the contract and advise you of the possible consequences.
I thought the closing lawyer was supposed to research taxes and liens on the property and make sure everything was pd. The new owner got a real estate tax bill in his name for the taxes that weren't pd. I didn't realize that all taxes due on the property were deducted from my settlement at closing... Read more »
Read your contract for sale and your deed. Those instruments may or may not require you to convey free of any tax encumbrances. If it is a warranty deed, you might be liable for taxes up to the sale date. But ultimately I hope you took your money from the closing. If not , you should not...Read more »
You probably need to file either a Quiet Title Action, Complaint to Determine a Boundary or some other Declaratory Judgment Action. You will need to hire a competent attorney to search your title, the adjacent titles, and decide what type of legal proceeding is needed. It will not be easy nor...Read more »
If you are referring to your insurance coverage you may be right. You can check your policy. But have you made a claim against the delivery company. If they were negligent, and you didn't sign a release, then the delivery company may be responsible and their liability is not limited...Read more »
It is not common, but it does occur. Restructuring, changing the tax basis, recording a new legal description, etc. could be the reason. What is your question, and what difference does it make to you? A careful title search might suggest the reason.
First you need to perform a title search and also check where the tax assessor is sending tax notices to. That should disclose where any code letters were sent. You may possibly be able to sue the city for a tort , but it would probably be a government tort liability act case, which few lawyers...Read more »
What is your question? It appears that you lost the Divorce, and your only alternative is to file a timely Appeal. There was nothing wrong with the Deed as you describe it. And I would presume the Daughter has the Remainder still subject to the Wife's Life Estate.
I’m sole heir of a house in Tennessee. It’s not part of probate. Creditor notices have been published, 4 month waiting periods ends soon. We’re pay two attorneys now and still can’t get a firm answer. The buyers closing atty states it is ‘TN law’ that he cannot release the proceeds... Read more »
Why did you file Probate? You may have needed to, or you may have wasted alot of money and time. But any creditor can actually claim against the Estate up to one year from death of the decedent. You should have considered this initially, and may have instead sold it to a cash purchaser. If...Read more »
My wife and her friend, who lives in Kenya, created an LLC to purchase a rental property in Memphis. The LLC is listed as the owner on the title document. The friend paid the initial deposit and has been collecting all of the revenue from payments made by tenants. My wife agreed to partner with... Read more »
If the property is owned by the LLC, the "operating agreement" of the LLC controls resolution of any dispute among the owners/members of the LLC. If there is no "operating agreement," there are state statutes which control the dissolution of the LLC. It is unclear what you mean when you say the...Read more »
Has it been at least a year since your mother passed? They might be waiting for all potential claims against your mother to expire. In the meantime, those proceeds must be kept available to pay claims. You will probably need to provide a TennCare release too.
Strictly speaking, you should not have to go- they are seeking "possession only" ( that language is VERY important, so double check) and if you agree or have already surrendered possession, then there is no dispute and no need for you to appear. HOWEVER, as the saying goes - "better safe than...Read more »
Usually the Statute controls. But as a practical matter what counts is removing the lien. Why did you pay it off without getting it released at the same time? They may take a year or never release it. Your only recourse is to file an expensive suit, hopefully in the same Court that rendered...Read more »
Mobile Homes usually have a Document of Title, and are considered personal property usually. Unless they are a permanent fixture to the land, they are still mobile. Whoever has the Title Certificate has the best claim to ownership of the Mobile Home. Your paying property taxes on the Mobile...Read more »
It is not a lien but a right of redemption for a certain period. You could wait to see if the mortgagee exercises its right of redemption, which is paying you money. After the period, and the right is not exercised, the property is probably yours. But you need a competent attorney who will...Read more »
Mississippi Law controls where the real property is. But I am sure there are Partition Statutes there like Tennessee. If possible you could have a surveyor divide it up, and four owners convey their interest to one until five deeds are executed with five individual owners. But more than likely...Read more »
My job is moving me to Dallas for a promotion. There is nothing in the lease about what to pay in case of breaking the lease. At first, he said that I wasn’t allowed to break it and there was nothing that could be done. Then he talked to the owner and they said 3 months but now changed their mind... Read more »
The lease break penalty should be specified in the lease. If it is not specified then default rules of the TN Uniform Landlord Tenant Act should apply. (in counties with over 75,000 residents) See T.C.A. Section 66-28-101. Unfortunately, the default rules state that the tenant is responsible for...Read more »
The HOA that I am a member of has restrictive covenants, and no expiration date is listed on the document. The covenants appear to run with the land, as most of the subdivision is still just land, and not many homes are built yet. Are the covenants permanent, or does Tennessee code have something... Read more »
Generally speaking covenants running with the land are perpetual. The Master Deed may have some limitations or the HOA may fall into disarray. They may become unenforceable, but are not rescinded per se, as once they are out there, it is forever. You might try to transfer in violation of them...Read more »
