  1. Transfer of rental property into an LLC for asset protection under PA LLC law

    I would look at the wisdom of doing this. What would be the point of transferring rental property into the LLC? The point of asset protection is to keep as few assets in the LLC as possible (if you are concerned about creditors of the LLC). You should keep the property in your own name and use the LLC as a property management business that leases the properties. That is what CPA's and attorneys usually recommend. Do not do any of these transfers without first discussing the tax and legal...

  2. Foreclosure and deficiency judgment under NV foreclosure law and procedures

    Answered about 6 years ago.

    1 lawyer answer

    Generally, a non-judicial forclosure in most states extinguishes the rights to seek a deficiency judgement. This is because lien forclosures constitute an election to forclose on the property rather than proceeding on the promissory note. However, it would depend on the documents that you signed and the law of your jurisdiction. You need to see a lawyer regarding the legal consequences and laws in Nevada. I will tell you that it is EXTREMELY rare for banks to proceed on deficiency...

    I agree with the other attorneys. You should be comfortable with your attorney. Additionally, your trust should be simple to understand and you should be comfortable with your attorney. I do estate planning for clients around the state and I try to make sure that clients understand all aspects of their documents and that they are comfortable with what they are signing. Additionally, you should understand that sometimes trusts need so many amendments that they need to be "restated". This means...

    It sounds like you were ordered to pay attorney fees to the opposing party. They should have filed an attorney fee petition and the court would have set the amount you would have had to pay. Then, a supplemental judgment would have been entered. If you have not paid the amount set by the court, you probably would have gotten a demand to pay the fees and/or some collection letters. Additionally, you would have potentially had wages or accounts garnished. I would contact your attorney and find...

    It is possible that the daughter will try to apply for gaurdianship/conservatorship of both parents in this kind of a situation. However, if the daughter has little contact and if the dad is competent, it will likely not be approved by the court. I find that many people simply do not understand the legal jargon and will sometime threaten family members with legal terms in order to get their way. This is why people need to get informed and get their legal affairs in order before they become...

    The established law in oregon is that a ring in contemplation of marriage is not a gift and the recipient can be forced to return it or pay the value to the giver. However..a ring that is simply a gift is not a contract and the recipient does not have to return it or pay it back. I was arbitrator for a case directly on point..

    I would need to know more of the facts concerning this issue. Generally, in order for you to be able to sue an attorney for malpractice, you have to have "privity" with that attorney. There is a great deal of case law that makes it very difficult for adverse parties to sue an attorney. However, if beneficiaries can prove that an attorney breached a duty of care to the estate or the decedent, it may be possible to maintain a suit against an attorney. These are difficult cases and requires an...

    If it is a commercial lease, you just need to follow the notice requirements of the lease agreement. If they fail to pay rent within the time required in your notice, you can file an FED in the court in your jurisdiction.

    Under Oregon law, she has died "intestate", meaning that she has died without a will. Our laws provide an order in which her estate is handled. If no member of her family steps up to file a petition to probate her estate, a creditor can file a petition to probate her estate. It is possible that the state Department of Human Services has a medical lien on her property. If this is the case, then the state will start a probate on her property. I would hold off rent payments until a probate has...

    Your question makes no sense because you would have been able to occupy the property all the way until the foreclosure sale. Also, I would need to know what kind of foreclosure it was (judicial or non-judicial) to know whether or not there is a deficiency judgment. It looks to me that you are concerned about the bank going after you for more money. I need to know more facts. I can arrange a consultation with you if you contact my office by phone or email. 541-476-8825
