    I do not disagree with Mr. Bianchi, but wish to point out that you'd better be sure your apartment is no legal before relying on it. A court will not look well upon someone who thinks he can live somewhere for free. Of course, if you had the money for a lawyer, you would be able to pay the rent, but you you will need one when the landlord commences the eviction. Maybe consult with a local attorney now?

    If you are a beneficiary and not the Executor, it is true the attorney does not represent you. If you want representation, you need to retain your own counsel. Have you spoken to the Executor to see what he thinks the timeframe is? He may be speaking with his attorney regularly.

    You need a Lawyer for this. Hopefully, you have an attorney representing you in the purchase. Too many things can go wrong, and too much to list here. Creating a landlord /tenant relationship with the prior owner is not a good idea. It may also be a violation of your mortgage agreement for you to not live in the house.. Your lawyer can better guide you.

    If your judgment (and necessarily your petition) is silent on the issue of damage to the unit, you have an uphill battle. As has been said, "costs" refers to your filing fees. Did you have an attorney representing you? Based on the relatively small amount you are talking about, you might consider small claims court, but be aware that to prove your case, you will need to establish not only that you spent the $250, but that the apartment was not in that state when the tenant first got...

    Did you co-sign on the note only or are you on the mortgage, and necessarily the deed? In other words, you're just a co- borrower or also an owner? Your reply will affect our answers.

    When you eat out, do you prefer fast food or a real restaurant? Do you prefer a one-size fits all, order by number, you stand in line, seat yourself, and clean-up after yourself in a cafeteria atmosphere where nobody cares if you ever come back? Nobody knows what's in the food and forget about "special" requests. (You might leave feeling temporarily satisfied but you'll probably have a stomach ache later.) Or, do you prefer to be seated, waited upon, and eat something that's been...

    If the PWA was filed with the Clerk's office, it runs with the land. Assuming you are correct in that it covered (and was filed against) all 12 units, each subsequent owner took with notice and is subject to it.

    Sometimes what you don't know can't hurt you... but this is one of those times where what your lawyer doesn't know *CAN* and probably will hurt you. Tell your lawyer EVERYTHING.

    As a month-to-month tenant, you never had much security anyway. Hopefully the new owner will want to keep you on as a tenant. Best bet is to continue paying your rent and be cooperative as the foreclosure commences. Good luck.

    If you are his sole heir at law, why do you need to put the title into your name? You should not need to probate his will unless there are other assets, aside from this house.
