  • If the seller fails to perform the repairs she agreed to do prior to closing,is she liable to reimburse me for costs?

    She agreed in writing.My expenses include: bank charges;legal fees;inspection fees, etc

    Robin’s Answer

    I agree that you should consult with your current real estate attorney. He should be advising you that you can refuse to close until the repairs are made and the seller agrees to reimburse you for your out-of-pocket costs, you can agree to close with an escrow agreement whereby the seller agrees to make the agreed-to repairs and reimburse you for your expenses with a generous amount set aside in escrow until the repairs are made, or you can ask the seller to give you a credit against the balance of the purchase price due and you will take care of making the repairs after the closing.

    My son asked me to cosigned the purchased of his house, which I did, I only signed the papers but did not contributed with any money at all. I just learned that my name is in the Deed of the house. How can I remove my name from this Deed?

    Robin’s Answer

    If the papers that you signed were mortgage documents, you would need to review the mortgage documents and possibly obtain the lender's approval to learn whether you can remove your name from the Deed.

    You should consult with a real estate lawyer to review the papers that you signed so that you can learn exactly what your rights and responsibilities with respect to this property are. accurate

    Did you sign a contract with the dealer to buy a car? Was your purchase of a car contingent on your getting a loan? You should consult with a lawyer and have all written agreements that you and the dealer signed for your lawyer to review.

    From the facts that you have presented, it does not appear that you have a legally enforceable contract. Even if you had, they do not seem to be perofrming their end of the agreement. You should find another contractor.

    From the NJ Real Estate Commission FAQs website: Persons and firms who broker loans secured by mortgages on commercial real estate for compensation must be licensed as New Jersey real estate brokers.

    Robin’s Answer

    There's needs to be an Operating Agreement between the LLC, the two existing members and the new member to be added. Each of the members should have his own lawyer review the Operating Agreement before everyone signs it. And yes, it is important that it discusses how profits and losses will be split, who is contributing what, and how to deal with death, disability and if one member wants to leave or the others want one member to leave involuntarily.
