    Did you provide any written notice to the landlord requesting repairs? The landlord can file an eviction lawsuit after the three days have elapsed. In the lawsuit, if you wish to stay in the property, you will have to pay the outstanding rent to the clerk of the court and request a hearing to determine the rent.

    You will be best served by having an attorney file a motion for relief from stay in the bankruptcy court. Do not take any action in the eviction case or send any letters to the tenant demanding payment. You may be found to have violated the bankruptcy stay and may have to pay money to the tenant as a sanction. I understand that landlords quite often file evictions on their own but dealing with the bankruptcy court is not something I recommend unless you are experienced in that area.

    If you own the property jointly with your ex, then he can probably file a partition action and force the sale of the house. If you have been served with a summons in a lawsuit, you should consult a real estate attorney immediately.

    Most of the questions you ask will be determined by the arbitration agreement. Review the arbitration agreement. It should state the arbitration administrator, the location where the arbitration would be held.

    HOAs can and will foreclose on your property. They can negotiate in that manner because they have the power to force the sale of your house. if you cannot work something out with the HOA, consult an attorney as soon as possible. Has a foreclosure action been filed? Has a lien been recorded?

    Who did the house belong to and was there a will? If you are one of the heirs then you can open an estate and have your-self appointed as PR. I think an unlawful detainer action is probably the better choice instead of eviction but it depends on whether the ex-husband was paying rent.

    The foreclosure law firm will keep moving ahead with the foreclosure unless yo take some action in the foreclosure lawsuit to stop them. You need a foreclosure defense attorney to help you immediately. The next step the foreclosure law firm will probably take is to set the motion for summary judgment for hearing approximately 30-60 days out. If you do not have an attorney, they are likely to get a sale date scheduled a month later and your house will be sold. Do not rely on the modification...

    A promissory note is what is normally used but you should have had the friend sign before giving them the money. If they have the money they can refuse to sign the note.
