It’s approximately 20” around where the atv tires were rubbing and chewed it up.

Now they are talking about possibly contacting an... Read more »
I allowed a showing yesterday of the house I am renting. I am moving in January when my lease is up and I want to help out the owners. The listing agent has not disclosed in the listing that the home is currently rented so 75% of the showings so far are for people expecting to move in. Yesterday,... Read more »
Talk to your landlord and ask them to deal with the agent. It sounds like the agent considers you a bother. That you want to have privacy and enjoyment of your home is not unreasonable, you are paying rent and are entitled to it. Its possible that your lease covers this situation and that may...Read more »
Need some more information. But it sounds like you've been divorced but still have the house? If that's the case, an attorney would need to look at the deed. A divorce would sever the tenants by entirety status and make it tenants in common. An attorney would also need to review the...Read more »

My father-in-law has recently started showing signs of dementia, and the family is in the process of having him diagnosed. Apparently, his cognitive deficit has been going on much longer than we suspected. His homeowner's insurance policy lapsed, and the lender foreclosed and sold the home. No... Read more »
This happens alot and dementia is not a defense to a Trustee's Sale. Hire a competent attorney to search the Title and see if there was a Surplus. Setting aside the Sale for even irregularities is probably moot; it needs to be enjoined prior to the Sale.
I’m in Tennessee my lender is in California, just tried to repossess my car because I didn’t sign my title or title application. I have not defaulted on payments.

the husband and wife is a green card holder in USA . Death certificate of the husband is available. can you please advice what is the procedure in changing the share of the property in India to her(wife) name. Also,this couple has no children.
You will need to hire a competent attorney. Heirship determination will be according to the State of death. An interpreter may be needed. India's laws will control the Deed's terms and recordation if a Deed is needed.

Hire a very competent attorney to search the title. It sometimes clears the title to buy at a Tax Sale, but again you will need an attorney to draft a Deed. Determining Heirship might get you close to a purchase.
Apparently you do not know your boundaries at this point. Your allowing a house to be built on your land without protest will be used against you.

There is a lot more to this than simply getting notice of Delinquent Taxes. Hire a competent attorney to search the Title. The Redemption period is probably past, but the alleged owner may only have a Bill of Sale, not a Deed. An Ejectment Action may be possible. The legal description should...Read more »
Not sure of your question. But if they have no source of title, then the grantor cannot convey. There could be a felony involved for a totally wild deed. But worse they may claim some authority, and you will have to file a very difficult, expensive case in Chancery to set aside the fraudulent...Read more »
