Is it possible for property to transfer this way, yes. Can owners be responsible for injuries occurring on property they own, yes. Liability to trespassers is narrow though.
If you have been sued, you need to see if any of your insurance policies offer coverage (and defense) contact your insurer. If you do not have coverage, you need to consult with a lawyer.
If this is hypothetical and you simply want to dispose of your interest, this can be accomplished. Consult with a probate lawyer for guidance.See question
Have paid 1 yr rent but behind 1 yr if evicted what rights do we have ?
The right to have your case heard in court and to be evicted by the sheriff. The landlord cannot resort to self-help evictions (like cutting utilities or changing the locks).
You'll probably also end up with a money judgment against you.See question

Generally, your liability for the rent depends on whether the landlord is able to find a replacement tenant. The landlord has a duty to make reasonable efforts to find a replacement tenant and the original tenant is only liable for the rent lost.
In Chicago the rental market is very bad in the winter, I assume this is also the case in Moline. I wouldn't be surprised if it took the landlord until May to find a new tenant.
Many landlords will not go through the trouble to sue a tenant for unpaid rent, especially if the tenant is of limited means. You have to make the decision whether to either negotiate a settlement, pay the full amount, or wait to see if the landlord actually sues you. There are pluses and minuses to each course.See question
I have lived in a basement illegal basement unit for 3 yrs. I lapsed on my rent by about 1 month....can he through me out? No lease
If you are behind on rent the landlord can take you to court and evict you. You may have counter-claims related to the legality of the unit. You should contact a lawyer.See question

Roommate situations are among the hardest to handle.
Most leases limit who can reside in the unit and how many nights/consecutive nights a guest can stay. This would violated most leases I have seen.
You aren't going to have a right to evict your roommate (though your landlord might) and even removing the boyfriend could be tricky.
If there is still a lot of time left on the lease, consider hiring a lawyer to review the case for lease termination. If the lease is nearing completion, give proper written notice of non-renewal and move out on time.See question
My mother passed away and on her will left everything to me I have 1 sister and 2 brothers and now one brother and sister wants to be money hungry saying I need to give them thousands of my mothers money but I'm still making sure the house and eve...
I agree with Mr. Gottlieb.
Just because your mother had multiple children does not mean that they are all entitled to money from the estate. If your mom properly made a will leaving everything to you, they aren't entitled to anything.
Successfully contesting the will is a challenge and the result of a successful contest will depend on whether or not there were earlier wills. If this is the only will and they successfully contest then they would be entitled to an intestate share (probably an equal split among children, assuming no spouse). They would have to get this share one way or another, whether the house has to be sold would depend on many case specific factors.
Bottom line, you need a probate attorney. Use the "find a lawyer" tab above to find one you feel comfortable working with.See question

Your problem is convoluted. Assuming that the original owner did not sign an agreement with you, the person who provided you with your lease option to purchase can only pass the rights he or she has. If the person you have a contract with does not have rights anymore, you likely don't either.
This reminds me of some real estate investing schemes that float around. Unless you are very savvy, it is best not to enter into complicated real estate agreements (as opposed to a basic tenancy or purchase).
Take all your documents to a local real estate attorney so they can help figure out what is going on and advise you of what remedies, if any, you have.See question
Looking to rent apt 3 adult self 2 college age children can't see required to present 3x or 2.7x income to rent, cost of 3 credit report before seeing rental unit any having to disclose all information on line. What is fastest way around this, in ...
It is common for landlords to require three times rent in monthly income. It is also common for landlords to require a background/credit check fee of around $50 per adult. It is uncommon for a landlord to require these things before you see the apartment.
Anytime you are asked to turn over money or personal information before seeing an apartment it is a red flag for a scam or at least a less-than-ideal landlord. In fact, many landlords will not even consider renting to people before they see the apartment.
I would suggest you look elsewhere.See question

This is going to depend on your carrier's policies and their own actuarial processes. If they give you a quote that you don't like, talk to other carriers. Keep in mind that there are many sub-par carriers out there and that choosing the cheapest isn't always the best plan.See question
