Well that depends. Did you and other owner(s) have an agreement when you bought the place and it was determined that your percentage was 20% of the ownership interest as to how to divide other expenses or attributes of ownership of the property. Partnerships can be someone complicated and even...Read more »
I purchased a small townhouse in 2012 and made it my homestead. I later purchased a home but I kept the townhouse and rented it. I sold the home and purchased another and then another. Each time I moved into the home and lived there from 1 to 4 years. The mistake I made was never canceling and... Read more »
Unfortunately, ignorance is not an excuse to the law. You were rightfully tagged for your mistake. I have been through this before with clients and, indeed the ignorance argument is always used and always loses. You have no choice but to pay up and file homestead (hopefully with portability) on...Read more »
This is definitely a tricky planning area. The starting point for this type of question typically is whether the money would pass through a will, trust, IRA, joint bank account, etc. A trust may be best to handle this situation depending on the state law where you are domiciled at death. You...Read more »

Unfortunately there is no easy or inexpensive way to solve this problem. The easiest way to do this is to open a probate with the assistance of his children, since without a will and not be married to your mother the property passes to the children, who can then transfer their interest to your...Read more »

Now 3 years later the IRS is demanding taxes on the "payout". The money was actually rolled over into a different account but unfortunately UBS did not do what we requested and it was sent as a payout (we paid taxes on it) and coded as a payout instead of a rollover. We have re-sent the original... Read more »
It is very difficult to analyze your situation and give you guidance without seeing all the underlying documents--including every statement from UBS received by you--both BEFORE the "mistake" and ever since--plus every other document with facts and numbers related to this SNAFU. Moreover, no...Read more »
A real estate attorney or an estate planning attorney who prepared these types of deeds would have to review your deed to answer this question for you. There is specific language which must be included for it to be a "ladybird deed" or "enhanced life estate deed."
I boarded dogs at a kennel. After 5 months of payments the owner offered me a part-time job. It progressed from a 3-4 hour morning/evening to 24 hours (10 hrs in the kennel & 14 hrs in their home taking care of their 8 pets) over 3, 5, 7, or 10 day periods. On lunch, I was required to answer phones... Read more »
Apparently for a debt write off over $10,000, the lender reports SS# of both the borrower and cosigner. The IRS is trying to modify my 2016 tax return to include the 1099 income from the debt write off. I had no part in the settlement, and we weren't married at the time the loan was settled. The...

My grandmother bought a house last year and I signed as 0% on the deed. House is paid for. I just found out that she did not pay the property taxes this year. She is currently being accessed to see if she needs to be placed in assisted living due to her health. Can I be held responsible for... Read more »
What document did you sign "as 0%"? A grantee (person acquiring the property) doesn't usually sign a deed, and owning 0% doesn't make any sense (It's like saying that you own no interest in the property; so why name you at all?). In any event, if taxes are not paid, the local government's option...Read more »
Generally, Realtors are not required to inform buyers that they may have some gift or benefit coming in the future; they are only required to tell buyers about negative aspects of the house or property, like the roof leaks or the property is in a flood zone, or where sink holes open up frequently....Read more »

I assume it's a tax foreclosure rather than a mortgage foreclosure. In any event, it depends upon the terms of your lease if you have one. If you still have, pursuant to the terms of the lease (or at-will tenancy), the right to occupy the premises when the foreclosure is complete and the landlord...Read more »
Is small such as I mentioned will the IRS always work with me (extra time to pay or a payment plan?) or does this depend on how they view my financial situation? Also if I just don’t file on April 15 and don’t pay since I am a “small fish” I owed nothing last year and don’t expect to owe... Read more »
