Michael Hales' answer Small timeshare resorts are often purchased by larger companies that seek to bring the new owners into compliance with their general policies. They can typically do this so long as the new ownership terms are not seriously different than those accepted when you signed your original document. Of the changes you listed, I think your first (changing how you are charged) may be the biggest issue and may allow you to cancel or find other relief. However, it will be impossible to know without...
Aimee Hess' answer If an oil company has violated its agreement with you, it is possible that you can get a court order requiring them to fulfill their obligations under the contract. They may also be liable to you for damages. You will first need to have an oil and gas attorney review the contract and the facts that you believe show the oil company has violated the contract. The oil and gas attorney can then review with you your options to enforce the contract.
Tammy Lyn Wincott's answer The name a tax office has for the owner of property is not controlling as to who "actually" owns the property. An owner of real property is determined in the Deed records where the property is located.
Tammy Lyn Wincott's answer If a new lease was never signed (even month to month), you will be required to give the notice from your original lease. There may be extenuating circumstances that allow for shorter notice; however, there aren't many.
Tammy Lyn Wincott's answer As I have not read your contract, I cannot answer specifically. Generally a 30 day notice given on October 2nd would mean the person has to be out by midnight November 1st.
As the unit has been vacant, I would expect they would want to release it for an extended period as soon as possible; therefore, I don't understand their argument over the one day (if turned in on October 1st, it would be a 30 day notice).
I wonder if the lease says a "30 day" notice or by the last day of...
Peter Munsing's answer Classic problem with any rental institution. You are on the hook so it's easiest to keep busting your chops. As they are involved with lyft you may want to look for an attorney who handles employment cases and insurance "bad faith" cases and is a member of the Texas Trial Lawyers Association
Terry Lynn Garrett's answer Hire a local probate attorney to file an Application to Determine Heirship and Issue Letters of Independent Administration. The woman must prove that she and your father had an informal marriage (recognized in only seven states). This usually involves filing taxes jointly as a married couple, naming one another as spouse on employment and insurance records, holding out as a married couple and intending to be married. If the court finds an informal marriage ("common law marriage" does not...
Terry Lynn Garrett's answer If the deed properly stated who owned the property (which may have been the RLT or may have been your uncle), correctly described it and was properly recorded, the deed governs. All too many people create RLTs and do not properly fund them by recording a deed into an RLT. On the other hand, your uncle may have recorded a deed from him to the RLT and then a deed from him to you. Without seeing the documents, it is impossible to tell.
Terry Lynn Garrett's answer If your father left no more than a home, $60,000 in personal goods and household effects and $75,000 in other assets (such as a car or bank accounts) you can file an Affidavit of Small Estate. The court filing fee ranges from about $300-350, varying with the county. If you file an Affidavit of Inability to Pay Court Costs and that is accepted, the filing fee will be waived. An Affidavit of Small Estate must be signed before a notary by all the heirs at law and by two people who will not...
