The property owners (your mother and aunt) both have rights to use the property, which include the right to lease it out. If there's a written lease, that will govern who can evict you and why. If there's not, you're a month to month tenant, and the oral lease agreement can be...Read more »
We lived in an apartment on a lease that ended 4/23. We renewed on 2/31 for 6 months, which starts on 4/24. We decided that we were moving out on 4/20 and canceled the renewed lease in writing on 4/20. We also informed them in writing that we were going on MTM lease and this is our 30 day notice...

Sorry, but it sounds like you Did terminate early. After the renewal, the lease was supposed to run through October, and you terminated in May. Changing your mind after you sign the renewal, doesn't get you out of the renewal, even if you tell them before the renewal term was to start.

However, an entity that is created for the sole purpose of owning real estate may not need to be registered in TX even though the property is located in TX. While the entity that conducts the...Read more »
this rock was part of some kind of thing that was built on the ground to make a platform. I did not build this it was already built. Can i file under the homeowners insurance policy because i was badly injured?
Can a company do that legally? I noticed that I have been paying for years and I noticed that the balance owed on the house was not going down. After the interest was paid they doubled my note, I am about to lose the house because I can't afford the payment of $1586.29.
It sounds like you and the lender agreed to a modification that would allow you to pay interest only for a period of time, and now that the period is over, they want you to make up the payments, which is why the monthly payment is increased.
It's not at all clear what you originally...Read more »
We do not want our private road made a public street. Can the city override our desires when we homeowners on the road have titles/deeds saying we each own 1/4 interest in the road and easement and no changes, alterations or modifications can be done to the road or easement without our written...

Yes, absolutely. If Dad had no will, then Dad's "heirs" inherit Dad's assets. Most surviving spouses just assume that they automatically inherit the deceased spouse's estate, but that's not actually correct.
Keep in mind, though, Mom will likely be the...Read more »

Definitely consult a probate attorney. I do think you'll need to involve the probate court so that your inheritance rights are protected. Many probate attorneys offer free or inexpensive consultation meetings.

A Texas attorney could advise best, but your post remains open for a week, and it sounds like you are under pressure to make a decision. There's no guarantee all posts are picked up, but you could repost your question under the Landlord-Tenant category. You'd have better chances of a...Read more »
If you have a Life Estate, then you enjoy vested possession of the property until you die. However I think you mean someone else had a LE and you have the Remainder. If so, have a knowledgeable Affiant make an Affidavit and record it, stating the death of the Life Tenant. You would be advised...Read more »
My neighbor has a driveway with access to part of my land which they let me use anytime I want, but I want to make them a cash offer so that it gets permanently written into the city land records that these two properties equally share the driveway no matter who owns the properties.
