  • Judgment Lien

    Warren’s Answer

    Your proceeds are safe for six months after the sale. You have until after that time to reinvest them into another home, or some other exemption, or spend the money. Good luck!

    Warren’s Answer

    You should visit with an attorney to look at it in detail. It is possible that, if you were actually not served, then you can fight back. It may be possible to appeal, or not, but you'd have to move quickly, even if the time to appeal hasn't run. It may even be possible to reopen the case. But move fast.

    Warren’s Answer

    You really should get an attorney to discuss this in detail. If you actually owe the money, you should make a deal to pay it. If you don't, then you need to fight properly.

  • Do I need to charge sales tax on web app creation?

    Texas charges sales tax on " web site creation and maintenance" - this is called data processing. However if I create a computer program for a company and transfer the copyright to them, that is not taxed. My question is this: if I create a web ...

    Warren’s Answer

    When you call the comptroller's office, that office will probably either say 'yes', and give you an explanation. I'd start there. Then if the office has an opinion from the Attorney General on the matter, or can cite case law, then ask the office for that case, and then bring everything to a local attorney and we'll figure it out.

  • Liability over hacked email account.

    I am buying a house. My realtor's email was hacked and used to send me the wrong information which I unfortunately used to send the money. Now, the bank is trying to get the money back but chances are some or all of it is missing. Does the realtor...

    Warren’s Answer

    I would think so. If there were very obvious clues that it was not correct, then the realtor would probably attempt to argue that you should have known, and thereby you are the problem. But I would certainly send the realtor a demand letter and make the attempt.

    This is also a real estate question more than Internet.

    Warren’s Answer

    If you are attempting to get out of the purchase using this fact, I think it will be a struggle, however....some connection between the lack of disclosure and the problem you have with the house.

  • What are my options as a primary borrower/buyer for a truck that is in the cosigners possession?

    In March of 2015 my significant other asked if I would cosign for a vehicle for him. He was unable to qualify for a loan, and I became the primary borrower. Our original plan was for him to refinance the truck in his name after three months. Wh...

    Warren’s Answer

    In other words, if you know where the truck is, and have keys, then go get it when you can, if you can do so without causing a fight. Whether that is at a job site where you know he works, or something else. Depending on the resources you have, you might just get a boot put on it, and wait for him to contact you.

    Unless you know that you can do this peacefully, however, I would not go that route. There are plenty of attorneys in the area, and this is a pretty easy deal. If the truck is worth real money, then you should just file suit. To me, it looks like you have a breach of contract claim, so you can try to recoup your attorney fees.

    my son is not divorce he's separated and he wants to visit his son, what does he do? And us as grandparents wants visitation.

    Warren’s Answer

    He needs a court's authority to force the wife to work with him, if she's not doing so. You need to file suit.

    Warren’s Answer

    You can probably have this discharged in bankruptcy, but there are other details that may come up, such as whether you really expected to be able to pay the funds. I'd visit with an attorney and have the exact time frame mapped out accurately.
