There is a will and a trust. The trust states it is not responsible for any mortgage debt. The estate has no value other than the house which is mortgaged at higher than valuation. Will the bank sell the surviving spouse the house at fair market v...
I agree with my colleagues. Upon the spouse's death, the ownership of the house passed to the estate. It will pass from the estate to the beneficiary in accordance with the will. It is unclear how the trust may fit into the picture. The terms of the mortgage loan should also be reviewed to determine if the loan is payable on the death of the former owner. You need an attorney to review all the relevant documents, gather all the facts, and advise you.See question

You have the right to have your tenant leave if you give written notice 30 days before the end of any month. If the tenant refuses to vacate, you will need to file a complaint in landlord-tenant court in the county where the property is located. This can be done without an attorney, but it is always a good idea to consult an attorney familiar with landlord-tenant matters, so that no mistakes are made.See question

One encounter does not amount to harassment. Also, the actions need to be motivated by an improper purpose, such as the intent to annoy or create fear; if the encounter involves a legitimate complaint (or what the other person thinks is a legitimate complaint), it may not be harassment.
IN short, you need more than this to claim harrassment.See question
So there is this one particular realtor who has a few homes with for sale signs on it but when you search that property it does not show as being for sale. I believe this is segregation of certain races and should not be condoned.

If your husband passed away in New Jersey, contact the Office of the Surrogate in the country where he was resident at the time. You will need to administer his estate - this is the legal process of passing the property of a person who died without a will. In that process, you can apply for an affidavit of next of kin that will be issued and sealed by the Surrogate.See question

I agree with my esteemed colleague. Whether the coop board has the right to make the coop residents replace the windows is a matter of how the coop documents are written. These documents need to be reviewed by an experienced real estate attorney familiar with cooperative formation.See question

My neighbor lake property wants to charge easement fees for lake access that I do not want. Can I release myself from the easement?
From the facts you have stated, it is not possible to give you a reliable answer. Your property can be burdened with fees for lake use in several ways, and you have not given enough facts to show exactly how the private lake property might (or might not) have a right to charge you a fee.
