Legally, so long as your actions are within the scope of a valid power of attorney, and you’re acting in your mom’s best interest, I do not think you need to get your family’s permission. What preserves the peace in your family is a for more complex topic.
Sadly, the answer is yes. While health comes first, contact an attorney asap. There might be certain steps that should to be taken to preserve evidence. Also, make a police report. Sorry to hear about you misfortune, good luck.
I am in agreement with the answers that you have received. One note, I usually send a denial letter within 30 days for the purpose of preserving your credit report. Otherwise, the odds of you getting sued are less than 1%.
Please see an attorney asap. I don't see how you will ever be personally liable for property taxes, but if they go to sale, the title will be transfer to the winning bid. If you cannot pay the taxes, maybe you have enough time to pay them from the closing, if you decide to go that route. Either way, please seek legal help. Good luck.
You have received great advice. You might have some options, but what path you take will really depend on what you like to accomplish. What are the realistic goals: loan modification, no judgment against you, extra time to relocate, eliminate other debts, etc? I would definitely see a foreclosure/bankruptcy attorney asap. You will certainly benefit from understanding you realistic legal options, both in short term and long term. Good luck.
Generally, there is a notice requirement to break (or attempt to break) a lease. From the information you provided, it seems like that didn't happen. I suggest you start with the non-legal route, and have a civil conversation with your tenant. Perhaps you can come to an agreement. Good luck.
I agree. The banks will very rarely accept a deed in lieu. However, you probably have more options than you are aware of. I strongly suggest you sit down with an attorney and find out what option is best for you and your family. Good luck.
If you have a six month written lease executed by the landlord, you have a right to live there for six months, unless you are in violation of the lease. If you are in violation of the lease, you should receive a proper notice and time to cure any violation (5 days for non-payment of rent and 10 days for other alleged defaults) In short, your landlord can’t kick you out in without cause. Illinois is not a self-help state. If the landlord wants to kick you out, that will require a valid court...
This is a simple civil demand, a negotiation, and not a matter for the state attorneys office. Personally, I think offering $150 seems too generous, but that’s your call. While they have a right to initiate a civil lawsuit, based on the circumstances, I don’t think that will be the case here. While ultimately it is your decision, but I would not pay them anything.
