My mother died two years ago. Her 2nd husband (not my father, died ten years before her). I was executor of mom's estate and distributed the proceeds to all her listed beneficiaries per the legal instructions in her living trust. I still have many...
If the funds were properly titled and the trust was properly administered, I'm not sure what claim these individuals would have over the trust. However, without knowing more about the trust documents and the estate administration, there's not much that can be said about your risks and best course of action other than to talk with your own probate attorney in private.See question
I was a tenant living in a single room of a house with other room mates in other rooms. I have an allergy to marijuana and the landlord continued to allow other tenants to smoke in the common areas. On top of that another tenant purposely exposed ...
Your landlord is probably right, there's probably not much a landlord can do about it and even if there is, your landlord might not want to get involved in the internal disputes of his tenants and ordinarily doesn't have to. I'm not sure what "purposely exposed me to it without my knowledge in attempt to experiment on me" means, but that might be a crime, which you might want to discuss with law enforcement. If you and your housemates and landlord can't resolve this dispute, you may have some serious problems, as you probably cannot unilaterally break the rental agreement. But if you can't live in this situation further you should review your rental agreement carefully, perhaps with the assistance of your own attorney.See question

Courts do not make decisions about whether you have to move out of a domicile without your knowledge, so either Larry is lying or you are leaving out some important facts. Either way, you should have talked with an attorney before moving out. You might still have some claims worth pursuing, but you need to talk with your own attorney about the details.See question
I was recently contacted by an attorney asking me if I would release my child support lien so that a property formerly owned by my son's father could be sold. The amount I am owed is over $14,000, and he said the bank would give me $2,000 to relea...
Without knowing any of the facts or your goals, it's pretty impossible to say whether this is a good idea. You should consult with your own attorney about the specifics. Also, this is definitely not a construction law question, so I'm changing the topic area to child support, where you might get better answers.See question
My ex was arrested for domestic harassment. No one filed charges (stupid, stupid mistake on my part). After he got out of being detained but not charged he came home and peacefully agreed to move out. After he moved out of state for about a month,...
It's not clear whether there ever was a restraining order, but it sounds like you may be able to seek a restraining order against him now. http://courts.oregon.gov/OJD/OSCA/JFCPD/Pages/FLP/FAPA.aspx If you prevail, you can have your landlord change the locks and have law enforcement arrest him if he comes on the property again or otherwise violates the restraining order. ORS 90.459. http://www.oregonlaws.org/ors/90.459 Or you could get yourself off the rental agreement and leave him there, if he can pay for it. ORS 90.453 http://www.oregonlaws.org/ors/90.453
You might want to consult with your own attorney to help you figure out other options or look around for other domestic violence resources in your area. Good luck,See question
a tenant has been causing alot of trouble ,,they are not obeying park rules ,,and doing drugs and have had alot of traffic going in and out. we want them out of here, ,,can the cops be called to get them out,, ?
Law enforcement won't respond until the court tells them to or a crime is being committed. The cops won't enforce park rules and it's not clear what you mean by "a lot of trouble." If there's no crime being committed, the only way to get them out is through the eviction process. You should contact your own attorney to assist.See question

None of what you're telling us the renter and friend told you makes any sense, legally. But if neighbors are pulling up survey stakes, trespassing, and threatening you, then it might be time to talk to your own attorney. Alternatively/additionally, you might just want to leave your neighbors and the fence plans alone or contact the property owner to let him know that his tenants are crazy and you need some intervention. As for whether this is a zoning issue, you'd need to talk to the governing city or county or your own attorney for some guidance.See question
My friend and I recently bought a house, but he passed away. He did get to make a payment the first payment. I would like to assume the loan. I do have the death certificate. can you help with that? my number 562 754 0699
A couple of issues:
First, sorry for the loss of your friend.
Second, If you're looking for a lawyer, use the "Find a Lawyer" feature above. You shouldn't put personal information including your phone number on this forum.
You cannot get a power of attorney over someone who is deceased.
Assuming you are also named on the loan, you don't need to do anything to "assume" it. You just need to make sure the mortgage bills get paid. You should notify the lender about the death.
Your friend, if he or she had heirs, likely want to contact a probate the friend's estate. If there aren't heirs willing to do so, perhaps you could do it. You'll need to talk to your own attorney about the specifics and what should happen with title to the property. Without looking at the deed and any agreement the two of you had with each other and the goals of any heirs or beneficiaries, it's hard to predict a path.
Good luck,See question

Your landlords are responsible for keeping the property habitable, which it sounds like they're not doing. Paying rent and putting notices in writing to them to fix the issues with the house is probably the safest route to avoid being evicted. If you can't get them to fix the place, then you might need to talk to your own attorney before withholding rent or it might make better sense to look for somewhere else to rent where you won't have to deal with them further.
As for your past expenses, ordinarily landlords aren't required to reimburse you for improvements to the property without some agreement. What the agreement was and whether you can prove it is something you'd need to discuss with an attorney. If you get a termination notice or a notice to appear in court on an eviction, you should definitely talk to your own attorney. Good luck,See question
My ex-husband and I opened an escrow according to the written, signed sales contract to sell our commercial property: $20,000 would be deposited at the Title Company. While I was out of the country, my ex convinced the buyer (a friend of his) to...
It sounds like your ex-husband caused you to breach the sales contract (which you agree that you signed). And it sounds like that if husband received the payment, then you should be able to defend yourself personally from liability from the buyer's $19,500 suit (it's not clear where that litigation is currently). I don't see any obvious liability on the title company's part. It sounds like something that you need to clear up with husband through the filed litigation or within your own divorce proceeding. Regardless, you should consult with your own attorney about the situation, the buyer's claims, and your claims. Good luck.See question
