i sold my property on a land contract last year and now the buyer is filing chapter 13 and is saying that he can file on my property and keep said property without paying for it
The Buyer is incorrect, but you will have to work on getting your money. Chapter 13 is a repayment plan. But rarely is it 100%. You need to consult a bankruptcy attorney ASAP and file a proof of claim, maybe even an adversary proceeding. Remember, you need a bankruptcy attorney, one that does creditor work, not the debtor side. Good Luck.See question
My uncle is executor and I am alternative. He had failed to do anything. I've kept up property and paid off debts
You can put a lien on it but you own a 1/2 interest in it. Not sure putting a lien on your won property is the best way to handle this issue. The easiest thing to do is sell the property. Either you buy your brother out, or he buys you out or you sell it to some one else and split the money. If your brother won't agree you can force the sale thru a Partition action. This should only be a last resort as it means having to sue your brother.
With regard to your uncle not performing his duties as executor ask the court to allow you to take over. You will need to talk to an attorney there in London to see if there is sufficient basis. Good luck with both issues
I bought my home off of my father last February. We never got around to transferring it into my name due to not being in a hurry.. Well he passed away the first of October very unexpectedly, & now I need to figure out how to get it into my name...
Not sure what you mean when you say you bought the property last February but did not get around to transferring it. To "buy" the property there has to be a closing , a transfer of funds and a transfer of title. If that did not happen then you did not buy the property. Now that your father has passed the only way to transfer the property is to A) open an estate in probate court and B) ask the court to enforce a written contract for sale. If you don't have a written contract your chances are slim to none. My suggestion is that you consult with a probate attorney there in Glasgow to see what your rights/options are going forward. Check Avvo first for qualified lawyers and if needed go to the courthouse and ask to see the probate docket. The clerks can't suggest attorneys but you can look at the docket and see the 2 or 3 that have the most cases. They are more likely than not the 2 or 3 with the most probate experience. Call them, talk to them and pick the one that best suits your needs. Good Luck.See question
Came home Saturday morning to a note on my door saying my water heater was leaking and that they would fix it Monday. They shut off my water till then.
Hopefully you have your water on again. While the landlord may be able to turnoff you water for an emergency you should ask a)why it took so long, and b)what kind of reduction you will receive for the inconvenience. ( assuming you did not cause the problem). Check your lease and contact a local AVVO atty.. Good LuckSee question
Good afternoon. My court date was last week on the 18th October. However my ex said she was going to attend so I didn't. She go. So now I have to reschedule. We have no children together. No money factors. Could you tell me how I make another co...
You don't identify what kind of case this was so its very hard to give you any advice. Generally speaking. in order to reschedule a motion or hearing you need to file a motion with the court. All motions in Kentucky are subject to local rules regarding when the motion must be filed and when it will be heard. My suggestion is that you go to the courthouse or get online and figure out when your court has motion hour. Circuit Court is different than District Court is different than Family Court is Different from Small Claims. The clerks can't refer you to specific attorneys but if you go to the right clerk and ask to see the docket sheet you can ID the attorneys that do a lot of work in that court. Call 2 or 3 and see if any of them cam represent you. Be sure to check on Avvo to see if there is someone local. Good luck.See question
My lease is up at the end of next month,in the lease it says that at the end of the lease we will surrender the property unless we decide to hold over,in that case it will convert to a month to month tenancy.three properties next to me have been ...
Louisville/Jefferson County Metro has adopted the the Landlord Tenant Act and as a result you as a tenant have more rights than tenants in other counties. Specifically, if you file a claim with any government agency and your landlord subsequently tries to evict you it is prime facia retaliation. In other words, they have to prove that the termination of the lease is not related to your turning them in. This is not an easy thing to prove for them, especially if you have made all of your lease payments on time. If they try to evict you, you can ask for a jury trial and if they decide it was retaliation you can get up to 3 months rent and your attorney fees. Check Avvo for local attorneys (I'm not the only one who does this kind of case), but I would be happy to discuss this with you. Good LuckSee question
My brother in law has placed our mother's house and property in his son and daughter's name against us saying he will take all the property an and funds our mother has. He has promise to leave us nothing when our mother dies. He has already put ...
If I understand correctly, the lady in question is actually your mother- in- law, not your mother. Your brother -in-law and your spouse are siblings. So the real party in interest here is your spouse. If any action is going to be taken against your brother-in-law it will have to be taken by your spouse, not you. That being said a parent has no obligation to leave anything to their children and can treat children differently. If you believe the will was signed under duress then you have to prove it. The best chance to do that is now, while mom is alive. Sit down with her and find out what's going on. Is she competent? Does she need to have a fiduciary appointed to take care of her.? Is your brother-in-law hiding her from the rest of the family? Start keeping a diary of your interactions with her. Keep in contact. Text and email if she's up to it. If you feel like she is at physical or emotional risk or is being defrauded talk to your county attorney. Hire a good probate attorney there in Owensboro and see what they can do to help preserve her estate. Understand that just because your preserve it does not mean she has any obligation to give you any of it. She could give it to a church, a friend or her cat. What's important for you to figure out is 1- does she know what she s doing and 2- are HER wishes being carried out. Good luckSee question
I am going through eviction and today i had court and missed it how long do i have to move out the apartment
Since you live in Louisville your case would have been heard in Jefferson District Court. If you did not appear the judge probably signed the eviction order. You have 7 days to either appeal or be out. If you appeal you have to deposit all past due rent with the court clerk and you have to make your monthly payments to the clerk while the appeal is pending. If you do not appeal and are still there the landlord will go back to court and ask for a set out order and will get it in a day or two. Once they get that order they coordinate with the sheriff and set your stuff out. They have no duty to safeguard or protect your property. If its raining it will get wet. If people walking by like what they see they walk off with it. I strongly recommend that if you are not going to appeal that you have your stuff out by day 7. Anything after that and you risk having it set out, which could lead to damage and theft. Good LuckSee question
Hello, I worked for a real estate company where the owner and supervisor would have shady business practices. They would go to homes.com, homepath.com, zillow.com and would copy all of the information including the pictures and then paste it on cr...
If these individuals are licensed real estate agents/brokers then they were probably breaking the law. Most states require that real estate licensees can only advertise properties they have listings for. If NY law has this requirement than they were in violation. Now that you don't work there what are you going to do with this information? You could turn them in to the Real Estate Commission but that will only affect their license and won't help any of the people who were damaged. Another option is contacting the NY attorney General's office of consumer affairs. They may be willing to pursue the real estate company and get some recovery for all the people who were taken advantage of. Neither option will put any money in your pocket but helping others, knowing you are not going to get anything out of it , can be very rewarding in other ways. Best of luckSee question
My neighbor across the street has his mailbox on my property directly across from his house.His mailbox is inside the county easement.I told him I wanted it moved immediately.He called the county police on me.The Livingston county police told me I...
The placement of mailboxes is regulated by the US Postal Service. Are all the mailboxes on your street on the same side? This often happens in rural areas to make delivery easier and faster. I suggest you go down to your local post office and find out if the mailbox has to be on your side of the street. If it does, maybe you and your neighbor can agree on a location, (it will still have to meet all USPS rules). If it does not have to be on your side of the street then contact a local lawyer to discuss your options. Those same USPS regulations make it a federal crime to mess with the mailbox so don't do anything to interfere with your neighbors mail/mailbox. Its not worth the trouble and it makes you look like the bad guy. Talk to the Postmaster and a lawyer. Good luck.See question
