I'm a bit confused... if she hasn't bought you out yet, you're still an owner of the property. She can't pay you off with tenants money... you're entitled to one third of that already as a current owner. Unless she's paying you 1/3 of the rental income PLUS one additional tenants money.
Unless there's some agreement to the contrary?
I feel like something is missing here and you might need to retain an attorney - or at least discuss options with one.
Patent searching is not an easy thing. You can start on the USPTO's website (USPTO.gov), but patents are very complex. Remember also that there are strict rules for what is patentable.
If you're looking to patent something you need to talk to an IP attorney, and it can be extremely expensive.
In addition to what was previously said, I highly recommend against avoiding companies such as this that are based in either Florida or California, the home of fly by night debt negotiation companies.
Up-front fees are also highly frowned upon (and depending on the specifics may be illegal).
That being said, I know nothing about this particular company.
Why were you unable to refinance? Who did you try to refinance with?
