We got a reconciliation with amounts withheld much higher than expected, and the numbers are all even and round. We do not feel like this is the actual amount paid for any damages that he claims are beyond “normal wear and tear”
There are very strict requirements around security deposits. I encourage you to reach out to an attorney. If a security deposit is wrongfully withheld if may subject the landlord to treble damages plus attorney fees and cost. Like I said, it does not hurt to talk to an attorney.
After closing on the condo the HOA levied a special assessment for $6,000 for roof repairs. The seller provided HOA meeting minutes that mentioned the hail damage but said it would be repaired by the end of the month prior to closing. The seller did not disclose anything relating to roof damage... Read more »
If you have stayed on the property as a guest, it is considered a license. A license can be revoked meaning that you can be evicted. Due to the duration of time, you may even be a tenant. But a tenant without a written lease that is provided with a notice to quit may also be evicted. I would...Read more »
The house that I am saying is a affordable unit through housing authority that I have owned for over 20 years there is a deed Rider that I do not understand but I thought I would get to see the purchase and sales first
You should talk to your lawyer about your questions and find out from them why you did not see the P & S before the purchaser and if you are not comfortable with your counsel you should seek other counsel ASAP as in the real estate sphere "time is of the essence".
I really enjoy questions like this because I champion the rights of home owners in an HOA. An HOA is kind of like being in the mafia, but instead of being a "soldier," treated with some respect, you're treated with disrespect and ridicule. You should get a copy of the HOA's...Read more »

In 2002, my brother and I bought a house. A few years later, after getting married, my wife and I wanted to buy him out, take his name off the deed, and add her name to the deed. Through a lawyer, we filed (what I believed to be) the appropriate paperwork, but I am now realizing that he is still... Read more »
I am trying to secure title insurance on a Florida parcel of land I purchased in 2008 from the heirs of a deceased resident of Puerto Rico. He deceased in 2000. I have the declaration of heirs and each of the heirs signed my deed. The title insurance company is requesting either a Florida mini... Read more »
The certificates you require are not provided by the court. They're provided by different government agencies in Puerto Rico, as described below. The cancellation of stamps & tariffs on the certificates designate them as originals, and are, thus, not notarized (sworn).
Without more information on the location of your property, if you have any agreements on whose responsibility it is to maintain the bushes, where the bushes are located, if you have any or need any easements, it is hard to say what your next step could be. However, if you have not spoken with a...Read more »
The park is paying to put in concrete and sheds for people buying their home, with a small fee added to their lot rent. But if I, a renter, want a shed, I have to pay for the concrete, and the shed. And the shed has to be approved by them. This just seems backwards to me. As I would have to pay for... Read more »
If the developer chooses not to mail the report, and not to publish it in a publication regularly distributed within the subdivision, can they "limit" the amount of time the report is "posted"? I requested a copy of last years report, but was told that was not possible because... Read more »
The statute doesn't provide a time period it has to be posted and only provides it has to be posted within 60 days of the end of the fiscal year. Don't confuse this with Section 720.303(7), which requires a HOA to either mail you a copy or send you a notice it is available upon request....Read more »
You need a competent GA attorney today. Title co will claim it does not represent you, so very weak causes of actions apply. Seller may be liable on covenants of title, but maybe not. Also someone should have looked at survey, and you do have some responsibility. You have bought a lawsuit.
I purchased 85 acres in February of 2022. I did not have it surveyed. My 73yo neighbor (in declining health) has lived on his property for over 40 years. He tells me he has no idea where our property line is located. But if you were to look at the map of the real estate listing, and you were to... Read more »
You and your predecessors in title have probably already acquiesced to the boundary. Survey at least the boundary line and get a KY lawyer to draft/execute a boundary line agreement to be recorded. You might go after your buyer on a warranty deed, but it would be expensive and doubtful. Tax...Read more »
If you had a written lease with your parents, the new owner must honor that. If there was no lease, then you are a month to month tenant, and the new owner can offer you a new lease, or terminate your occupancy by giving you 30 days' written notice.
If your father had other assets, you will need to file for an Administration in Surrogate's Court. However, if the property is the only asset, title to the property vests in the heirs by operation of law. Your interst in the property is determined based upon the other surviving relatives of...Read more »
