Step one is to communicate with this person regarding what they expect to receive in a sale of the home. Any value gained since the purchase, will be funds in question. (A court may find that the increase in value must be divided, you won't know until you receive a final judgment from the...Read more »
The answer depends on what you have listed on the deed. If the deed says two people own the house "as Joint Tenants" this means that when one dies, the other will own the full house. If the deed only lists both of your names, then when one dies, their half of the house will be a part of...Read more »
As I have not reviewed your lease or the text and email from the landlord's management company, I can't tell you how likely you are to win if you were to fight this out in court. The theory you suggest is valid and may be true. Your relationship with the landlord is based on your lease...Read more »

Based on rights, you have a right to stay as long as contracted, and Landlord is has the right to do business with whomever he pleases. If he accepts payment for a new month, he must let you stay for that new month. Some landlords will change their plans if you give them an extra month's rent...Read more »
Title is legal ownership of a piece of real estate. Unless he was placed on title in error, or through fraud, your boyfriend currently owns a portion of the real estate. The only way to remove him in that case would be to get his signature on a deed releasing his interest to you, or if he refuses,...Read more »
There is no limit to the number of homes you can rent and buy at the same time. One important thing to remember is that many home loan agreements require you to personally live in the home you get the loan on for a specific period of time. Some as much as a year or more.
Other complaints against us since my wife upset him have been universal throughout the park, Bikes near but not in garage, etc. We lived here for 2 years largely left alone, I believe this is antagonistic retaliation.
I am sorry to hear that things aren't going well with your landlord. Your relationship is legally defined by state law and the contract. If the contract says you must paint, or if you are being required to do anything else that is in the contract, you normally will have to do it or you will be...Read more »
We are being sued buy the buyers of our home for an HOA assessment that took place 5 or 6 months after the sell of the home. We knew there were issues with the moisture barrier of some of the homes in the neighborhood but our home had no such issues (this was disclosed). Apparently the HOA sent out... Read more »
Whether or not you are liable is a judgment call. A judge might determine that since the email was issued by the HOA and it arrived in your email box, you had opportunity to review the email and warn the buyer.
OR, a judge might decide that the email had no specific meaning as you had no...Read more »
I’m trying to prove that the termination of my 12 year lease because i informed the landlord about a mold concern, was illegal because of landlord retaliation laws protecting tenants in Utah. They are now trying to sue us for a large sum of money that is exaggerated and fabricated. They have no... Read more »
There are many things that might be put in a lease but they can't be pursued in court because they are inappropriate. It would be a waste of time and energy to try to list them all here. You cannot be taught how to defend yourself in a short note like this. Having an attorney review your lease...Read more »
When you add someone to the title of your home, you have given them partial ownership. If you did not specify how much ownership on the deed, then everyone listed on the deed has an equal share. In a lawsuit started by either party, the home could be forced to be sold and the proceeds divided...Read more »
I have raw land I’m selling without the help of a real estate agent. I have not placed the land on market, the seller approached me asking to buy. We agreed on a price and want to move forward as easily as possible. I’m using a Utah REPC and plan to take the contract to a title company and have... Read more »
Earnest money invites only serious buyers to get involved in a transaction. The earnest money does not force the buyer to buy your property, so no, the earnest money is not necessary for the REPC to be effective.
I was under contract (standard UT REPC) with seller for property. I went to close on the property (prior to require closing date) and find out the seller has sold the property to someone else. I paid $2K earnest money and also hired people to inspect and consult on the land. Now, like properties... Read more »
I am sorry to hear about your situation. That is rough. Sounds like the seller made a calculation about the risk of being sued and damages and thought that selling it to another at a higher price was worth it. Unfortunately situations such as this are not uncommon, thought typically it has to do...Read more »
Section 50. HOLDOVER: Holdover shall be in accordance with the provisions of Section 2. LEASE DATE AND TERM.

Your willingness to type the entire clause in your question for review is admirable. Unfortunately, no contract is limited to just one clause. Frequently, poorly written contracts can even have competing clauses. When you ask "or just in the event of a Holdover" it is impossible to say...Read more »

I was told I'd be able to use the private hot tub on property. Being denied access. Hot tub not mentioned in lease. Lease not signed by anyone but myself. Can I move out without penalty and get my deposit back?
If you sign the lease, and give the landlord a copy, he is in control of whether the lease is valid. If you sue to enforce the lease, the landlord can argue he never signed it and that you are on a month to month tenancy. If the landlord wants to enforce the lease, he can hand you a signed copy and...Read more »
Sold our house in Utah 2 months ago. Just received email from title company asking for us to send $7,000+ to cover the tax bill that the new owner is responsible to pay. If there was no mention of prorated taxes on the final statement that we all signed the day of closing, isn't that in itself... Read more »
I suppose in unusual cases, this could go either way. The Real Estate Purchase Contract almost surely covered this even when the Settlement Statement did not. It can be argued that the final Deed replaced the REPC.
Without reviewing all of the documents, it's difficult to be sure what...Read more »
