I purchased a condo at the Jersey shore (vacation property) 10 years ago and just noticed (while refinancing) that my middle initial on the deed is incorrect. I called the Cape May County clerk's office, who stated I need to go through an attorne...

How are dates for Sheriff's sales assigned? There are some that are listed for months from now (June August, etc).
I agree with my colleagues. The average time between the sheriff listing the sale and the sale occurring will vary from county to county depending on several factors - the number of sales per month, the number of properties in each sale and of course the number of properties for which the sheriff's office receives notice to be posted for sale.See question
I think tort law but not sure?
That's a pretty broad question.
Generally, tort law governs that actions of one person that may cause harm (personal injury or property damage) to another. But there are many situations that may be governed by statute as well, such as the liability of airlines, government agencies and actions relating to consumer fraud or automobile accidents.
To really answer your question (if the above did not) you should provide more facts about the specific situation.See question
selling a rental home. For tax purposes I rather close this year. But it looks like it won't close to very early January. Can the deed be dated this year if the closing doesn't happen until the first or second week of the year? and can I claim...
Let me begin by saying that I do not practice federal tax law, so my answer comes from only general knowledge of the Internal Revenue Code.
I believe the rule is that the "taxable event" relating to a sale of real estate occurs only when the seller has unrestricted access to the sale proceeds. You can certainly date the deed this year, but I would guess that the buyer will not release the purchase funds to you on an unrestricted basis until the deed is delivered to the buyer, which sounds like next year. Also, there are likely to be many other documents dated on the date of delivery of the deed, so it would be hard to convince the IRS that the taxable event occurred in this year.
But don't despair! The code also provides for many situations in which tax losses may be "carried over" into future tax years. The determination whether you are eligible for that is beyond the scope of this website's purpose. Consult you tax advisor about those issues.
Since your question is more one of tax than real estate, I changed the practice area to "Tax" so that more relevant advice might be given.See question
I agree with my colleague. However, the circumstances of the situation may influence the answer, and as pointed out, you provided very few facts.
From the realtor's perspective, one signature may be enough even if two or more people are named in the deed. However, if you sell, the signatory may be solely liable for the commission under the listing agreement. So, for example, if two spouses are splitting up and selling the house and only one signs the listing agreement, there could be an argument by the other spouse that the commission should come out of the share of only the spouse who signed.
This is why it is helpful to have more facts.

The house was located in the Toll Bros Development, in Stewartsville, NJ (Warren County)
I agree with the other attorney on this. Your statement of the facts of your situation is so sparse that an answer cannot be given. Either revise or re-ask your question with more detail, or seek an attorney on the Find a Lawyer utility on Avvo.See question
I hired an agent to make an offer on a short sale that was in not such great shape. It wouldn't have gotten a CO. So the real estate office has allowed me to make very expensive repairs to this home and I have had access many times to do so. Now ...
Your situation raises many questions. Were you advised by an attorney? Did the real estate agent suggest or advise you to make the repairs? Has the seller's bank approved the sale? If the CO is the issue stopping the purchase, have you talked with the local official who would issue the CO, to see if you can repair the plumbing after the sale? Can you get your mortgage loan without a CO?
It sounds like you may have invested this money without taking proper precautions. I hope that is not the case.
As the earlier attorney said, you need to look up a lawyer on the Find a Lawyer utility on Avvo and get some advice and representation.See question
It was rented without my signature or approval.
Several more questions come to mind about your situation.
1. Are you getting any rent from the lease?
2. Are you paying any of the upkeep on the house?
3. Are you paying any taxes on the rental income?
4. Do you have any agreement between you and the co-owner as to management of the property, right to lease, division of net income, etc?
Unless you have an agreement that says otherwise, as a co-owner you have the right to approve the lease before it is signed, a right to half of the net proceeds of the lease and perhaps other rights. You should consult an attorney about these issues.See question
I am concern more so of his blatant disregard and feel he may forge my signature on other documents if I do not take action.

Can you look at the court file for a home in foreclosure or has been foreclosed? If so, are the records in Trenton or are the files else where? Home is listed for a sheriff's sale. Does it matter what county property is located?
You can use the Civil Case Access system to access these records. You will need the docket number and county of the property, or the name of the foreclosed owner. The system is not easy to navigate, but it should give you the information you seek. Access the system through the link I have posted with the response. Good luck.See question
