Unless they are in breach of some contractual obligation, a company may generally decline service for any legitimate business reason or for no reason at all.See question
Does a buyer NEED a closing attorney? My friend is buying a home and is scraping $ together!
Is your friend obtaining a loan to purchase the property? If so, a lawyer will be required to act as title counsel. In theory, if your friend is paying cash for the home then he or she could handle the transaction on his or her own - - but that would be such a terrible idea. A buyer's attorney or title counsel will examine title, certify title, obtain a plot plan, provide title insurance, act as escrow agent, make sure taxes are paid, mortgages are paid off, etc. Your friend really doesn't want to make the largest purchase of his or her life without a lawyer.See question

It isn't clear from your question how the building is owned or what you are trying to accomplish, but you would obtain a trustee certificate from the trustee of the trust. Are you an owner of the building or are you an owner of a condo in the building? Perhaps post more information or reach out to a real estate attorney to get things squared away.See question
My tenant paid 1st ,last and security . On May 22 they gave 30 day notice telling me that they will be out by June 22. I recieved a letter telling me that i will owe them 8 days of rent since they are leaving early. Rent is based on a monthly paym...
For a month-to-month tenancy, termination notice given on May 22, terminates the tenancy as of July 1. Your tenant owes you rent through the entire month of June. Assuming they pay their rent monthly, there is no requirement that you prorate their rent on a weekly or daily basis, although you certainly may if you wish. Based only on the limited facts presented, your tenants' last month rent may be applied to the month of June.See question

Thank you for your question.
The problem is that you can't sell the property without the assent of both owners. The law does provide you with an out - called a partition action.
The first step would be to make a formal demand for a buyout or sale and express your intention to file a partition in the event that agreement is not promptly reached.
Going to court is not as scary as it sounds. Partitions are relatively simple legal matters, and the court is charged with (1) forcing the sale of the property, and (2) equitably allocating proceeds if any.
The most common resolution is one in which the recalcitrant owner eventually realizes that a voluntary sale or buyout is better than a forced court sale and the parties are able to come to agreement.See question
My father has a Life Estate Deed on his property, which transfers to adult children when he dies. He is still alive. Once he dies, the transfer is supposed to take place with the death certificate and keep the property out of probate. I read ...
I agree with the others that a properly drafted deed reserving a life estate will not be superseded by a will. A will can only dispose of probate property. If you still have specific questions, speak with an attorney about your situation.See question

As the others have said, you want to get it in writing and enter it with the court once you have come to an agreement.
Generally, I would speak with a lawyer and try to find out how much they can actually garnish from your wages. Offer them a little less than that. Also, if you are going to agree to a payment plan, don't let them charge interest - or your balance will go up with each payment you make.
You might consider bankruptcy, but there are a number of factors to consider there.
As always, you will get a better deal for yourself and avoid future complications and stress if you have an attorney working on your side.See question

You don't want to say any more on a public forum. You might expect a lawsuit from the injured parties. Because you do not have automobile insurance, you will need to retain counsel to defense yourself. If you are contacted by the other drivers' insurance companies or attorneys, you should not say anything and retain counsel. Best of luck.See question

First, I'm very sorry for your loss.
The method and timeline of selling a house following the death of its owner depends somewhat on the specific finances of the estate itself, whether there was a will, and the beneficiaries. One thing is for certain, do not allow the house to be sold quickly to a family member who has an interest in getting a 'good deal' from the estate. The personal representative has an obligation to get the highest and best offer and maximize the financial return for the estate. Our office practices both in the area of real estate conveyancing and in probate and real estate litigation. It may help to have an attorney who can flex both of those muscles. My guess is that the trust's attorney is the same attorney working on your sister's behalf and he or she owes a primary allegiance to your sister and the estate.
To answer your question directly, assuming the assets and debts of the estate have been more or less ascertained, the house can sell at any time. There are good reasons and bad reasons for delaying a sale, and it may take an attorney to assist you in determining which situation you have here.See question

Thank you for your question.
A name change will not confer any of the rights and responsibilities of legal parenthood. The biological father doesn't sound like the cooperative type, but you will need to file a Petition for Adoption together with your spouse. Notice will need to be provided to the biological father - either actual or by publication at the instruction of the Court - and the adoption will proceed either with the biological father's consent or over his objection, if any. Because she is 14, your daughter will also be required to consent to the adoption. Best of luck.See question
