I closed on a home I sold in Morgan Hill in July, signed all the escrow papers, turned over all the keys and property and received my disbursement check/EFT. I thought all was done. 3 months later the real estate agent emails that I owe $4000.00...
Your post does not indicate the nature of the item for which you were invoiced. If the item was indeed an item which by the purchase and sale contract was the seller's obligation, the mere fact that escrow neglected to pay out of the escrow funds would not excuse you from payment.See question
Do personal injury cases in California require a fee agreement with the attorney be in place for the attorney can represent me in my suit, or is it optional?
No, but because there are so many variables other than just the recovery percentage (such as gross versus net recovery, and who pays for costs), it is obviously prudent to have a contingency fee agreement in writing. California Business and Professions Code Section 6147 governs contingent fee agreements. If an attorney fails to comply with any provision of the statute, the fee agreement becomes voidable at the client’s option and the attorney is only entitled to a reasonable fee.See question

I recently received a notice of Demurrer on an request I made to vacate a binding arbitration. I'm a layman, but I think there may be an error in the Demurrer filing. I've notice that in the California Rule of Court 3.1320(c) provides, "A dem...
No, if you are the only petitioner, this lack of compliance with the California Rules of Court is not a big deal and you should not make it a big deal. Rather, focus on the merits of the arguments made in the memorandum of points and authorities.See question

In order to terminate a month to month agreement, you have to provide 30 days written notice, and you are also obligate to pay rent for those 30 days. If you just move out without giving 30 days written notice, the landlord has the right to sue you for unpaid rent in small claims court (but whether this will actually happen depends upon whether it is really worthwhile for the landlord to pursue this).See question
I recently moved to a house where I rent a room while I finish college. Since I moved, I've been experiencing a lot of issues including flea bites and allergies and disagreements with the owner of the house who also lives there. She's avoiding to ...
Yes, the entire lease is still binding even if you did not sign at the bottom of the house rules section. There may be a way to terminate the lease early by way of mutual agreement with the landlord. Otherwise, if you simply moved out, you are liable for payment of rent for the remaining duration of the lease, but the landlord has a duty to mitigate damages by finding a replacement tenant.See question
If I was given a quick claim deed and didn't file it right away is it still good ? My husband, my boyfriend when he gave it to me. But during that time he had an accident I put it away(the quick claim deed). Forgot about it. Time went by, we were ...
Assuming the quit claim deed is in proper format and acceptable for recording by your County Recorder's Office, there is no time limit to record the quit claim deed. Whether or not recording the quit claim deed now will effectively transfer title to you will depend upon whether there are any other prior conveyances of title.See question
what do you need to complete this?
If you are referring to real property, the answer depends upon how title to the property was held (e.g. joint tenancy, tenancy in common) as well as whether or not a probate is necessary.See question
property management wanted us out so they refused to take our rent,lied and harassed us until we got out just so they could up the rent 300 dollars more. thank you for your time
You will need an attorney to file a civil lawsuit for wrongful eviction. The specific causes of action to be alleged in the complaint will depend upon your individual facts and circumstances. The viability of your lawsuit will depend upon when you tried to pay rent. For example, if you tried to pay rent after the expiration of the 3 day notice, the landlord/property manager has no obligation to accept rent, and therefore, you would not have a winning case for wrongful eviction.See question
My brother name and 2 sisters. I just want to protect my self in case any of them try to swindle me out of my part of my moms house
If you desire to ascertain the status of the ownership of the house, you need a lawyer to research the title. It is not clear whether the "deed" to which you refer was recorded with the County prior to your mother's death.See question
