You are really going to have to think this through. After you are dead, it does not matter what you wanted, it matters what the children want. Leaving a home to 8 children with no rules for sharing expenses, no rules for when the house can be used, and no rules as to who can use the house, will insure one thing. Your children will have conflicts over the property and you will not be there to referee. Talk to the kids and find out what they want and don't let what you want take precedence.
Almost any time you own property jointly with your husband, you want to own it as tenants by the entireties. Think of this as though it is the two of you as a couple that owns the property and that neither of you individually owns anything. On death of one spouse, the property will be owned by the survivor.
Joint tenants with right of survivorship requires equal owners. You and you husband would own one half and your sister one half. If you sister dies, you and your husband are the...
Your question assumes that the decedent and siblings took title as tenants in common. Obviously, if title was taken as joint tenants with right of survivorship, all bets are off.
The heirs will receive deeds as tenants in common, each to a 12.5% interest in the whole. Because title will now be held by 5 people in uneven shares, there can be no joint tenancy. It must be tenants in common.
If there is a good legal description, no title issues, and the estate's bills have been identified...
Let me see if I can restate your question. You live on a farm property that has had animals for years. You have been re-zoned to R1 and the township is telling you that, because of the change you have 30 days to get rid of the animals. If the letter is a formal letter from the Zoning Officer, you need to immediately appeal to the Zoning Hearing Board. You have a pre-existing non-conforming use and you have the right to keep your ag use. They can trick you be giving you a cease and desist...
Take a look at your listing agreement. Most say this: If the real estate agent finds a buyer during the term of the contract, and the buyer makes a full price offer either within X days of the end of the listing or before a new listing with another agent is signed, the commission is due.
You want to sell the house, be glad that there is a buyer. You might want to tell the agent that you are about to re-list and that he or she has the next 5 days to bring in the contract.
You have asked this question in a public forum. As a result, your buyer may be able to read this answer and be guided by it.
When a buyer simply says "I want out" and does not deliver the deposit, the issue becomes: Is this a buyer default? The buyer can argue there is no consideration for the contract, and in some courts might win. You would argue that since consideration is not needed for a deed, why should it be important for an agreement of sale, since an agreement of sale conveys...
The talk of trusts is good. PA repealed the rule against perpetuities. ( if you can figure out what it used to be great for you. It was a full semester course in law school) You really want to sever the Oil and Gas before they are developed. If they are put into a trust or family Limited partnership, there will be transfer tax but you want to minimize it.
I am having trouble understanding your question. Here is what I think you are saying: 1) you sold a property and the title company did not give you a copy of the documents, 2) the deed was forged by someone signing your name, 3) you have not been paid for the property.
If all the above is correct, you need to hire a lawyer who can search the title and who can figure out who the insurance company is behind the title agent that closed your deal. We all smell the fish. Act Now!!!
Most people think bad result = malpractice. In most states it is extremely hard and expensive to bring a malpractice case. Your first step might be to see if the current doctor thinks the prior doctor made an error.
