is the amount of time required to give tenants within FL statutes. I do not have anything in the lease about that. What is the procedure just to give them a letter?

I signed a quit claim deed as part of a divorce settlement with a clause that stated if ANY mortgage payment was 30 days late, the property would immediately be put up for sale. The first payment after signing ended up being 60 days late, but the ...
The settlement left you in the unfortunate position of remaining responsible on the loan while no longer owning the home. It would have been far preferable for the home to have been sold or for your ex to have refinanced so you would no longer be responsible for the loan. If you can't live with this situation contact your divorce attorney to inquire about the possibility of petitioning the court to amend your divorce settlement to require sale or refinance.See question
My mom and I jointly own the property outright. I reside at the residence and it's my primary residence
I agree with Mr. Bruckman. The conveyance by an individual into his trust typically continues to qualify for the homestead. Typically the grantor of the trust is both the trustee and the beneficiary so that provides the requisite beneficial ownership to qualify. The Property Appraiser will probably want to review the trust in order to confirm that you will continue to qualify. Talk to your attorney who is drafting the trust to be sure you will continue to qualify.See question

I agree with me colleague. I would also inquire as to whether your father had a will. If not, you and your sister will be the sole heirs. If he did have a will that may not be the case. Do contact a FL probate attorney.See question

If you alone signed the note, not your husband, then he has no liability. If you have been sued for foreclosure, contact an Alabama attorney right away. Also, contact a realtor and get a broker price opinion of value, if you have equity list it for sale immediately, if you are upside down you may be able to short sell it. You have options.See question
We bought a house in 2012 and the flaws that existed upon purchase are beyond our ability to repair. We hold the deed and pay the taxes, are not in default and all bills are current. While it would be great to get back our $10,000 down payment, we...
If this were FL real estate you would be referring to a deed in lieu (or instead) of foreclosure in which the borrower conveys the home back to the lender in full settlement of all claims. This can only be done by mutual agreement of lender and borrower, not by the borrower alone. Contact the lender to try to work out a settlement then be sure to hire an attorney to draft the deed and paperwork for you. If the seller will not work with you then other options include selling the home or, potentially, filing bankruptcy.See question
To get on her feet. (Not div yet). Land lord says I can't do this. It's a month to month lease. I did it anyway. Any advise?
You have provided proper notice for a month to month lease, just be sure it was by written notice to landlord within that time frame. For more information check out Chapter 83, Florida Statutes.See question
My 2 brothers and our sister inherited our Mom's home when she passed 12/2013. Our sister wanted to do buy the property and we told her she could if we come to a fair price. She also wanted us to rent the property to tenants because it was the b...
In my opinion it was improper to lease without all owners signing off on the lease. the proceeds should be split among all owners. It seems clearly that you and she have different objectives and it is time to move ahead with either having her buy you out or listing and selling the home.See question

I agree with Mr. Zies. Consult with an attorney right away in order to make an informed decision, which ultimately may mean having to work outside of the restricted area.See question
When the case involves a Mtg Bank and a Private lender as Jr mtg as plaiintiffs, if the case is dismissed with prejudice, can the Jr motgage without giving any notice start a new law suit
I would only add that no new foreclosure can be filed without notice to the owner. FL law requires the lender to attempt in good faith to personally serve the owner with the summons and complaint, that will be your notice of a new suit.See question
