We got our clear to close on 8/1 which was the last day for our contract. Unfortunately title couldn’t no accommodate us bc of there packed schedule. It was moved to the 8/3. Now the seller is asking for cash money in order for him to go sign at closing. We have signed on our schedule time but if... Read more »
It would be hard to give you a solid answer without having your sales agreement in front of me. Unless the seller agreement states that "time is of the essence" the closing dates are not real deadlines. Also, the Ernest money clause probably has some language in it about what will...Read more »
If the deceased people have children, does this entitle the children to part ownership of land, or do the living original owners now have all the remaining ownership? Example: 6 Original Owners, 5 are deceased but have all have children, one original owner is living. Will the 1/6 of ownership be... Read more »
It depends. Did the six original owners take title as joint tenants with right of survivorship? If so, then the entire property belongs to the survivor. It would be surprising if that were the case, but not unheard of. You need to sit down with an attorney who can examine the title to the...Read more »
Your question requires a bit of work for a complete answer. There are rules and laws that protect you from an unlawful HOA. I would need to see the original paperwork and filing which created the association and the neighborhood subdivision. You may be lucky and the HOA is now null, but there is a...Read more »
Flyer laying on ground outside apartment (dated 7/29/22 advising tenants that their rent for 8/1/22, must be paid by: cashiers check, money order or personal check and brought directly to the leasing office. No online payments accepted. Doesn’t this require 30 days written notice? It is a burden... Read more »
The good news is that your lease probably has the answers to your question. There is a written notice requirement for any change in a written lease. However, I would need to see your lease to advise you better. I believe you are good for this month, but next month you will probably need to comply...Read more »
Hired our car salesman (also a realtor) to sell our property and our home. Right away we signed what we thought was contract for representation. What we actually signed was a contract for his LLC to purchase. Found out afterward that he had planned a sale, then he sold same day to an investor,... Read more »
A contract to purchase real property is not a conveyance. You hopefully have not signed a Deed yet, so don't. Hire a competent TX attorney first. There should be several causes of actions, and you should not have lost "millions" yet. From your knowledge of what is going on,...Read more »
The best way to handle this issue is to try to talk it out with your neighbor before the fence goes up. It would be great if you had a survey that shows the lines, etc. If that will not help, then you may need to file for an injunction in Court to prevent the fence from going up. I'm not sure...Read more »
I live in a complex that is owned by an LLC. The registered agent for the LLC is also the on-site property manager. When filing evictions instead of paying the filing fees she submits an Affidavit of Inability to Pay. She is not included as a plaintiff in the suit. Only the LLC is listed as... Read more »
You have raised a serious question. I woould like to see the Affidavit filed requesting a waiver of the filing fee. If the LLC is owned by the person filing for the fee waiver, it might be allowed. But if the LLC is not a little mom & pop business, and they have many units, it might be fraud....Read more »
We closed on our home in April 2022. Have made two payments already! Still not living in it. Our general contractor hired a sub contractor to do our floor. Has attempted 3 times, left a razor blade in my daughters closet in the epoxy! Now is not answering calls or texts. And our general contractor... Read more »
We signed a contract for deed with my aunt on my residence on Dec 2013 she then conveyed her interest to her ex husband (my uncle) in June 2014 which in return he purchased the home from her with Rocket Mortgage for $55,000. In the same month 6/2014 she had a promissory note of $70,000 stating... Read more »
I just saw this question this evening. What a mess!
The good news is that there is a way to achieve your goal. The bad news is you will need to go to at least one court to resolve it. You may have to go to two different courts because it has to deal with an Estate now.
As you may know, when you buy into a development with a Home Owner's Association ("HOA"), you move-in agreeing to the terms of the HOA. The terms may change over time. But that is only done by the HOA board or other managing body.
Thus, you are stuck with the HOA rules by...Read more »
Absolutely! The deed, when filed with the County Clerk, is the first and only proof of your "title" to the land. The whole idea of having Title to land is that Title grants you status. That status gives you all the rights of ownership to the land. Most importantly it gives you the right...Read more »

You need to act fast. You should go get a copy of the Estate Paperwork, etc. They may have been required to serve you, and didn't, or created some other legal issue. However, if you do not get it all straight, you may lose anything you should have received. It sounds like you had at least 1/2...Read more »
My dads friend has been letting him live in a lease to own property for last 10 years. They have NO written agreement, only a Verbal agreement. His friend’s ex-wife’s name is on the mortgage and they are selling the property as part of mediation and offering to only give him a FRACTION of... Read more »
The statute of frauds requires that all contracts for the sale of land be reduced to writing. It sounds like your dad would have to file suit to quiet title to the property, and allege an unjust enrichment cause of action, which is probably the only claim in equity he can prove that payments came...Read more »
Hire a competent TX attorney to draft a Deed from him to you creating a Tenancy In Common, unless he is willing to give you a recorded Mortgage. Do not transfer money without one of the instruments being executed and recorded.
I can provide psychological and medical documentation that it is no longer needed. My wife will not comply. Is divorce necessary. Is it the only way. I have a paid for house and some land. She wants it evidently. She has me in a nursing home. I want out of the nursing home and guardianship and... Read more »
When we first told them we have mold, they said it wasn’t mold but sprayed mold killer. We told them again and they are still saying it’s not mold but my kids have seen multiple doctors who all say that they are being affected by mold. I’ve shown pictures to them and everyone says that it is... Read more »
