    To answer your question, anyone can do anything, but that does not mean they will prevail in doing so! Additionally, to further answer your question, if your Landlord is trying to terminate your tenancy, the Landlord is required to give you a 30 days notice prior to filing any legal action to terminate your tenancy. However, your Landlord would only be required to give you a 7 days notice prior to starting a legal action for unpaid rent, and thereafter, if it is determined by the court that you owe rent that has not been paid, the court is required to give you 10 days to come up with the money (a period of redemption) in order for you to be able to stay in possession of the Property. If you are unable to pay the judgment amount within a 10 days period following judgment of possession in favor of your Landlord, then the Landlord may petition the court for an Order to evict you.

  • I received a Notice of Foreclosure. Does the affidavits within need to be notarized?

    The affidavits are not notarized and everybody is Assissant Secretary. Seems like robo signing at it best! I can retype the same document and sign a person name, does that make it legal.

    Scott’s Answer

    An Affidavit implies a statement is sworn to under oath. Therefore, if it is not signed, it does not qualify as an Affidavit. Typically, Foreclosure statutes require a valid affidavit. If it is not signed under oath, then it will generally not meet the requirements of a foreclosure statute, and the entire foreclosure may be challenged in court.

  • If someone has taken money out of my checking account, and the amount is over $4000, can my son press charges

    even if he was not on the account at the time, but later added to the account? I live in Tennessee.

    Scott’s Answer

    Without a power of attorney, you would be the one that has to press charges. If any amount was taken out of your account without your authority, and you know who did it, and if it was done fraudulently, then yes, you can press charges.
