It sounds like your uncle and your mother own the property as a tenancy in common. If that is the case, the uncle would have the right to rent to tenants, but he would have to split the rents with your mom. Obviously he can't force her to pay for utilities and take the rents for himself. However, we would first need to nail down exactly what form of ownership exists here.
You should bring the following documents:
Your sister's Birth Certificate
Form 6-3, “Preference of a Minor over 14 years of age”. This form should be signed and notarized.
Also, bring proof of identification, preferably a picture ID, and proof of residence.
The loan is unenforceable in regard to the personal loan. It might be legal in regard to the corporation.
I have read the relevant provisions of the General Obligation Law but they are complex and hard to remember, so I am quoting from a blog from Attorney David Rich who states the law quite well.
In New York State, the rate of interest upon the loan or forbearance of any money, goods, or things in action may not exceed 16% per year. N.Y. Gen. Oblig. Law § 5-501(1); N.Y. Banking Law §...
In New York State which is the only state that I practice, the New York Secretary of State's Office does not do any inquiry as to your status in regard to setting up an LLC. So you could set one up -- however, that doesn't mean that the activity would necessarily be in harmony with the conditions of your visa.
There are not enough facts here to answer this question. To analyse the relationship between your mother and her husband would require a Family Law analysis. There's not enough information to understand who owns the property or what your relationship as a tenant or licensee is with the Ownership interest (also called the Fee) of the Property. You would certainly have some rights under the New York Administrative Code but that would only give you some time to move. A munch more thorough...
If you don't want a judgment against your record you will have to defend this lawsuit -- it seems like classic bullying. No real chance of winning and yet the guy is coming after you. Suits like this can be difficult because a lot of people don't take photos upon leaving. You need to gather whatever evidence you may have.
Were you ever served with a notice of entry of the decision?
An appeal must be filed within 30 days from the service of the order appealed from and written notice of entry. If neither side has served a copy of the decision and order with notice of entry, there is no time limitation on the filing of an appeal. For more information about appealing a decision, go to Appeals.
An oral contract is just as binding as a written contract, but this certainly doesn't end the matter. Legally the contract may be binding but an oral agreement with no witness and no voice recording can end up being problematic in terms of evidence. But again that is a question of evidence and not of law. Once of the attorneys who responded stated that you lack clean hands because you hid your ownership of the business. I'm not sure why that would indicate that you have unclean hands....
