An attorney does not have the wherewithal to counsel you as to Building Department violations. You should, however, have sought out the advice of a Professional Engineer or a Registered Architect, both of whom would be better able to have guided you as to such issues.See question
My son owes a mortgage on a house we live in and pay the monthly mortgage. Can he use a quit claim deed to transfer his interest in the property to us? My intent is to pay off the remainder of the mortgage and assume ownership of the property.
Yes he can but check with the lender to see if that conveyance triggers an acceleration of the mortgage.See question
My boyfriend and I bought the house four years ago and now he wants me out. He says I have no right to any equity. What are my rights? We have been together for 13 years.
Your rights are precisely the same as his, without the personal burden as to the obligation under the Note.See question

Three owners can force a sale with the intercession of the court, but if an appointed receiver finds that a third party outside purchaser is willing to offer more for the property than the family member is offering, then unless the family lay member either matches or exceeds the offer made by the outside party,then the family member may not end up with the house.See question

We recently bought a house. I know now that we should have had an attorney through the process but it's too late now. Had an inspection done and it said one window was cracked and water system could use updating but optional. Once we move in, have...
You retained an inspector to thoroughly examine the premises so as to ensure that you wouldn't have the problems that you are now having. Firstly, you should examine your written report thoroughly so ensure that your inspector actually did "miss" those deficiencies that you are complaining of and if so, you may have recourse against the inspector for breaching the contract that you had with the inspector.
Some reports contain an exculpatory clause which limits the inspector's liability to the cost of the inspection but on my experience such language has proven to be unenforceable.
I will bet that next time you will have an attorney represent you, eh?See question

My husband owes a mortgage that isn't in my name If he should pass away am I responsible for that debt .I own my own property we time in my home that's paid for
You would not owe the debt personally or directly. However, if the house subject to the mortgage is in his name alone, then whoever inherits the house, will do so subject to the cloud of that mortgage.See question
