My neighbor has audio and video surveillance cameras pointed at my driveway and front door and pointed into my backyard straight to my back doors what can be done about this I won't even let my grandkids come to my house because of this..
In Pennsylvania, audio surveillance is illegal. How do you know the audio is on?
I had a case recently where my client put up cameras because the neighbor was coming over while she was at work and cutting down her trees. Because the cameras pointed toward the neighbor's house, the judge ordered them removed, even though the neighbors' house was so far away that it showed as 4 pixels in the camera.
My wife and I purchased a lot in the subdivision next to my business (Inc.) which owns one of the plots along a divided highway. The subdivision plan shows a street the length of the property which was never dedicated, but exists on the plan and ...
Let's start with this paper streets are created by the act of laying them out on a subdivision plan. For 21 years after the street is laid out.the municipality can make the street a public street if it wishes. After that, only private rights remain in the owners of the lots on the plan. ALL owners can use the street. NO ONE can move the street.
Here is where your problem begins. The developer will argue you sat on your rights and allowed money to be spent moving the road. As a result, the defense of laches will be available to defeat your claim. BUT, that presumes you knew the relocated street would end up being built as it has been. Every day you wait, laches makes your case weaker.
I signed a Standard Agreement for the Sale of Real Estate and closing is scheduled for 7/26. I suffer from major depression and I was also withdrawing from a prescription from my doctor. I do not believe I was of sound mind and capable of making...
You want to get out of a standard PAR agreement of sale for the purchase of a home. You want to use mental disability to help you out. You are looking at this from the wrong point of view. You will spend thousands in legal fees and expert witnesses and still may not prevail on this path.
Look at paragraph 22 G of the contract (line 537). Is the box checked? If it is and you notify everyone now that you do not intend to close, they can take your deposit and nothing more.
In March 2014, I purchased my in-laws home. I didn't have enough cash at the time for all of my closing, so sellers assist was increased. My in-laws want me to pay back this difference now. At the time, I was not as well-versed in real estate v...
Your question is about a sellers' assist. When you got your mortgage, you and the sellers represented the assist was not a loan. Further, I assume there was no note signed. That means we have two documents to control the situation: the deed and the settlement statement (in 2014 it was a HUD-1) By basic contract law all earlier agreements merge into the deed. If the deed does not say you are to repay the money (trust me, it won't), there is no right in the sellers to go to court and testify about any prior agreement. Even if there was such an agreement, if you object , they cannot testify about the agreement. Further the HUD-1 specifically treats the sellers' assist as an adjustment in the purchase price and not a loan.
In other words, I would not lose a lot of sleep over threats of court action.
You should hire a lawyer to look at your specific documents to see if they match my comments.
I moved into my house as a tenant/landlord situation. I recently found out that the lady renting to me is not the owner of the property. I stopped paying her immediately! Now the bank is sueing me for a civil action ejectment complaint. I am activ...
You have rented from a person who lost the house in foreclosure. The bank is now bringing an ejectment action against you. This will definitely go on your record as an eviction. You need to hire a lawyer and negotiate a cash for keys deal (tomorrow). Then have the suit dismissed.See question
Our lake HOA won a district court judgement against a cottage owner that has not paid Association dues for 5 yrs. The cottage owner appealed and we are awaiting an arbitration date for the appeal. We have reason to believe she may sell the lake pr...
You have asked about filing a lis pendens. A lis pendens is a notice of a pending suit impacting title to the real estate. If the intent is anything else, it is the commission by the HOA and the attorney, of the tort of slander of title. Slander of title is a nasty problem you do not want because, during the pendency of the suit, no one in the association may be able to refinance their homes and new buyers may have trouble getting mortgages.
Let's get back to your real issue: the risk of selling and escaping 5 years of dues. Almost every Homeowners' declaration makes the obligation to pay assessments a lien on the real estate. That means if there is a sale, the lien goes with the property. Your lawsuit is really a claim to foreclose the upaid lien on the property. Any title company, and any trained real estate agent will ask for what is called a 5407 certificate from the HOA. The real estate agent will ask for it because, the buyer may cancel the agreement of sale for up to 5 days after receipt of the 5407 certificate (for condos it is called a 3407 certificate, and for co-ops it is called a 4407 certificate). The title company will ask for it because the lien will get ahead of a new mortgage if the HOA fees are not paid through the day of closing. Your attorney knows all this....it is time to trust the lawyer.See question
My husband and I have lived in our new construction home for 7 months. We have a one year workmanship warranty which doesn't have information around what is covered with an on site septic system. We recently found out that our septic system has ...
First of all the septic system is something usually covered in express and implied warranties. Your problem is that you seem to be a step away from telling the builder that he is not doing the repair correctly. This could be a disaster. The person who should say what needs to be done to correct the system is the person who issued the permit. I think that would be the county health department, but it might be the township sewage enforcement officer. Let that person determine the remedy and get the builder to say in writing that that is what will be done, Then VERIFY VERIFY.See question
Gas and Oil companies say they want to place pipelines along property boundaries to avoid breaking up fields of landowners they contracted with. How do I know how wide the right-of-ways are and ensure they do not encroach onto my property, thereb...
Pipeline companies have to record their easement agreement. They are publicly available on the Recorder of Deeds site. Get a copy of the neighbors document and look at the drawing. Then, watch what is being done and ask questions.See question

Get an attorney. You will want to be sure the title is free of encumbrances and may also want to consider title insurance. In your part of the world there are attorney who also are title insurance agents.See question
