My wife recently inherited our home that her mother owned for the past 14 years. Today I measured the boundaries from known points and found on one side a neighbor has a hedge growing 3 ft inside our side of line. whats more a driven pipe marke...
Thanks for your question. You should reach out to a real estate firm like ours and get set up with a land surveyor. Once you know where the boundary is, you can discuss options with how to deal with it. There are friendly things you can do to at least preserve your property rights.See question
As stated B4,I'm 85% disabled,& I ONLY rec'v <<$520.per.no.SSDI,how much will it cost me in total for court fees & a legal rep.to file for this judgement...??
Nobody is legally judgment proof. Individuals may be judgment proof as a practical matter if there simply is nothing for a creditor to lien, attach, or garnish. There is nothing preventing a creditor from trying to collect.See question

No, even if you agreed. Speak to a lawyer immediately. You may be entitled to 3x the amount deducted plus your attorney's fees.See question

Please reach out to a lawyer IMMEDIATELY. Payment of funds owed MAY stop the forced eviction. Forced eviction can cost your landlord money and they may be amenable to an agreement. If you don't do something, you will be thrown out. I wish you the best. Some attorneys may respond to e-mails and phone calls over the weekend - please don't delay.See question
My soon to be husband and I own a home out of state (we were both on the deed and there is no mortgage). The judge gave me that home in the divorce. The ruling reads "the Wife shall be entitled to all rents received." I am confused about this phra...
Without reading the divorce judgment, it is impossible to say for sure. However, it sounds like the home is to be yours along and any rents collected on the property. Assigning any leases means that your ex is to transfer his rights as landlord in any leases over to you and he is to turn over any rent he might receive over to you. Again only guessing, since it is not currently rented it appears you can go ahead and rent the home and keep all rental income. Have an attorney review the document with you and move forward with confidence.See question
Patrick and I bought a condo 12 years ago. Now we have split up. How do I get him off the mortgage without having to refinance?
Thank you for your question.
Assuming Patrick is cooperative, you can contact your bank and see if they will allow you to assume the mortgage. In order for you to assume the mortgage, you will need to be able to afford the loan payment on your own. In this way, it is akin to a refinance but may be cheaper. I say you will need Patrick's cooperation because he will likely have to relinquish ownership of the property.
Also assuming you have his cooperation, you could attempt to refinance and remove his name from the deed at the same time.
If he will not cooperate, you have the right to force the sale of the property by filing a petition for partition. That will ordinarily prompt a discussion over buyouts. Again, you would still need to be able to refinance in order to buy Patrick out.
Failing all of that, my advice would be to enter into an agreement with Patrick as to who will make payments, who is entitled to the equity when the property sells, etc. If you are going to be paying down the loan and taking care of the property, you should at least have something in writing to prevent Patrick from taking HALF of everything when the property sells someday.
I recommend you speak with an attorney. Our office drafts property ownership agreements but also handles refinances and real estate closings. Are you sure you can't refinance?See question
I am in Massachusetts and being sued by a creditor. I am "defending" myself. I have a motion for judgment appearance scheduled for next week. However, the plaintiff's lawyer sent me a summary judgment agreement and I agreed to it. Do I still have...
Show up and make sure that the agreement you negotiated is filed. See if you can get no interest or an agreement to take $x per month to avoid wage garnishment, etc. If you don't show up, default judgment will enter for base amount plus court costs plus interest, etc. Hiring a lawyer in these matters can pay for itself.See question
So this is the situation. I am planning to purchase this property ( Link- https://www.redfin.com/MA/Leominster/163-Tisdale-St-01453/home/16541785 ). Now on paper this is a 2 unit property (a duplex with an attached inlaw suite). In reality this is...
Do yourself a favor and retain counsel to assist you in this purchase. You can only rent the property in compliance with the town's zoning. You may have a preexisting noncomforming use.See question

We had a very standard MA lease agreement, the lease was actually transferred to me and my roommate by 2 people living in the apartment before us. Since they had already paid the deposit, we sent them the deposit amount when we took over the apart...
If your landlord followed the law (based on the limited information provided, it appears they may have) then your claim is against your roommate. You can file a small claims action. If you ever hope to see that money, you should probably start that process. Even if they don't show up or pay right away, your judgment will earn 12% judgment interest per year and you will have preserved your rights. Good luck.See question
