    Florida land trusts are one of several types of real estate ownership that provide certain types of protection to owners of real property. However, neither a land trust nor any other type of real estate ownership is a "magic bullet" that will protect the owner from all problems. If you want to buy real estate in Florida, you should not rely on information you find on the internet. You should consult an experienced real estate lawyer in your area to help you find the type of ownership vehicle...

    A quit claim deed, like a warranty deed or a special warranty deed, conveys all of the interest that your ex-husband had to the property. Rather than being concerned about the type of deed, you should be concerned about what the wording of the deed said was being conveyed. You should have this reviewed by an experienced lawyer in Missouri to determine what steps your son needs to take with respect to the property.

    When you bought the condo at the condo lien foreclosure sale, you bought it subject to a first mortgage. This mortgage is probably in foreclosure. If you do not pay off the first mortgage, you will own the property only until that foreclosure is completed. That being said, the listing agreement that the previous owner signed cannot be enforced against you - it was voided when you bought the property. You have the legal right to rent the property while you own it to your brother. This is a...

    Life tenants have an obligation to pay the current real estate taxes. If the property is lost at a tax sale, you will have to move off the property - both the life estate and the remainder will be destroyed. In addition, the remainderman may sue you for breach of fiduciary duty for your failure to pay the taxes. If you are unsure of your rights and responsibilities as a life tenant, you should consult an experienced real estate lawyer in your area.

    The answer to your question depends on the way in which the three of you held title to the property. Were you tenants in common, joint tenants with the right of survivorship, or did you have some other type of ownership? The answer may also depend on which two names were put on the check. You should consult an experienced real estate lawyer in your area about this situation. Your lawyer can review your documents and give you a more complete answer to your question.

    The fact that the property is in foreclosure does not alter your obligation to pay rent to the owner. You must continue to pay rent to the record owner for the full term of your lease. If you do not pay rent, you can be evicted. If you are unsure of your rights as a tenant, you should consult an experienced real estate lawyer in your area.

  9. Is eviction process necessary in Orange County, FL for trespassers who moved into vacant home without owner's consent?

    Because the family moved into the house without the owners permission and do not pay rent, they are not tenants and cannot be removed by eviction. The owner needs to have them removed by bringing an action either for ejectment or for unlawful detainer. To get compensation for their use of the property, the owner needs to also bring an action against them for trespass. The owner should consult an experienced real estate lawyer in the county in which the property is located to help with this.

    The answer to your question depends on the wording of the declaration of covenants and restrictions for your father's subdivision. While there is a presumption that amendments to the declaration are enforeceable, this presumption can be rebutted in some cases. You should consult an experienced real estate lawyer in your area about your right and responsibilities as the owner of the home you inherited.
