my lease expired on march 23rd 2021. Originally I had given a 30 day notice (what’s required per my lease) and was planning on moving to a new complex, but decided to retract my notice and just transfer units (switch from 1 to 2 bed). I have been waiting for over a month for my transfer request... Read more »
Your old lease expired, and you haven't signed a new one. For most leases, this means you're a month to month tenant. Check your lease to be sure. If that's the case, you must give a 30 day notice to terminate the lease.
I'm not sure why this is labeled Criminal Law but a lawsuit to recover money is always some flavor of civil law... consult an attorney with experience suing the government to find out about the immunity issues.
The most important thing is to get a lawyer to review every part of this deal before you do it, and I'd be suspicious from the start. It's telling that he can get "us" a $2 million loan. Sounds like trouble already, because he's using your credit to do his business. This...Read more »
I’m currently in the process of buying a house. We’ve gone through all inspections as well as the appraisal, and the seller has signed their end of the contract agreeing to the sell price. Yesterday their realtor called and said they are no longer comfortable selling the house for the agreed... Read more »
Probably not, but you may want to take the contract to an attorney for review to be sure. Don't sign any more extensions, and you will want to go ahead and have your financing ready, and you may want to appear at closing as well.
There are 2 buildings in the association, 4 homes in each. There are different issues for each building although the owners of one building have taken control to their advantage. What has been recorded in minutes is now “lost” although I can substantiate what happened through emails and... Read more »
A Texas attorney could advise best, but your post remains open for three weeks. If you consulted with attorneys who handle civil litigation, they should be able to advise. They could also identify necessary measures to be taken, such as notifying banks and other financial institutions. Good luck...Read more »
We were in a verbal agreement and I changed what he wanted changed on contract and he cashes the down payment check, but now he says he has a better offer and he dont want to sell to me he wants to accept the other offer. Can he do that
Local insurance agent put a coworker's address in my account when we were enrolling (along with at least one other typo; birthday is/was wrong). Been going back and forth with him and the corporate customer support team. I can't get a refund and terminate my account, because I cant verify... Read more »
If there is still a tax lien on the property after it is sold, and the seller provided a warranty of title, or the contract provided for such a warranty, then the lien would be evidence of a breach of the contract, not a defense.
This is a question coming across a lot of lawyer's desks, but there doesn't seem to be a strict answer yet. Maybe you and your landlord can agree to only do virtual showings. Check your contract to see if it says how and when they can show the house.
Setting aside the ROW in Court is not an option if it is your chain of title. However contact a competent Texas attorney that has actually engaged in real property litigation, not a title company. He should be able to advise about physically blocking, and thus terminating, the Easement. It...Read more »
Typically, no. That's in part because HOAs are expected to last over many years, and they will want to be able to adjust the dues to account for inflation, or additional or increased expenses of maintaining the common areas.
They are requesting a "contribution" in a contract agreement to abandon the easement. Do I have to pay any "contribution" requested from the easement holder to abandon the easement? What are my options to terminate the easement that has not been in use for over 40 years and is no longer be needed.
It sounds like the developer is trying to make arrangements for an agreement to abandon the easement. If they're asking for a "contribution" that sounds like a voluntary thing, but it's not clear where the easement runs. If you are one of the property owners across which the...Read more »
The deceased person never fulfilled their obligation, and we signed a contract. She was the sole owner of the business and the probate process has just been initiated by her husband. The administrator has been assigned yet either. Could I still sue her business and her estate in small claims court?
The short answer is no - because there's no one alive to sue, and until someone is appointed to represent her estate, there is no one with authority to act for her. Once some one is appointed as executor or administrator, you can make a claim against the estate, and sue the executor or...Read more »
We are financing our home through an estate trust. The deceased previous owner signed a shared well agreement with the previously owned neighbors lot. Under this agreement the neighbors have to pay a monthly fee for water and share in any repair bills for the well. It also says if the neighbors... Read more »
Without looking at the agreement, it's hard to tell, but this sounds like an agreement that runs with the land, so you're bound even if you did not sign it. I suggest you start sending your neighbors bills for the water usage, and negotiating an appropriate rate for their usage, rather...Read more »
If the Seller dies before the extension is signed or the sale closes, then you won't be able to close until someone is appointed by the Probate Court to act for the Seller - either an executor of the will, or administrator of the estate.
If the closing date has already passed, and...Read more »

Sorry, there's nothing in your post that suggests that the foreclosure or eviction were done improperly. You can't sue for damages due to the loss of the house unless the foreclosure was done improperly. In addition, such a suit must be brought within a maximum of 4 years (the time...Read more »
