I am owner if few properties , all properties is managed by Separate LLC , one of our customers trying to sue me because of icy driveway , ? I am not involved in running properties , can they do this ?
You need to talk to a lawyer. The lawyer should review your lease, your management agreement, and confirm the nature of your ownership and the facts of the case. (I presume there was some sort of accident.) Normally the lease would put responsibility for this sort of thing on the renter. The property management agreement could put it on the manager. There are other considerations as well. You haven't given nearly enough fact to give you a reliable answer.See question

If she has no will then the property goes to her family by intestate succession, according to state statutes. If she wants you to have it after she dies there are a number of different ways to do that other than by will. These involve keeping a present ownership interest and giving your what is called a future interest, something that automatically conveys fee title to you upon her death.See question
Making payments on note. Holder accepted varied payment amounts. Not all payments were exact amount specified in note. Does that make the note invalid?
The note remains valid but the right to collect the full amount required to be paid each month might have been waived, depending on the circumstances.See question

You bought the right to acquire title to the property after the redemption period. There is no statutory means of shortening the redemption period after the sheriff's sale.See question
I own inherited property along with 5 other individuals. They do not wish to consider selling it at this time, but I would. Is it possible to have my share bought out in a situation such as this, and , if so, how would this be done?
Yes, you own a fractional interest in title, which can be conveyed away, just like you convey a 100% interest to title when you sell your home unless of course there is an agreement to the contrary. You can sell your 16.7% to anyone or as many others as you wish. At some point the owners should sign a tenancy in common agreement that outlines the parties' rights and the procedures to exercise their rights. Usually -- if the others are disinclined to buy you out -- your leverage is that you can bring a partition action and force the sale of the property.See question

A valid easement cannot be terminated by the owner of the land over which it runs unless the easement so provides. A valid easement attaches to title and exists until it is terminated no matter how many times the two parcels of land are sold or mortgaged. You have a number of theories by which to claim the easement is valid, including the language of the easement itself. From the facts that you have provided the neighbor is not entitled to block the driveway but a quick review by a lawyer would be appropriate. It would be prudent to notify your title insurance company; it is possible that this claim is covered so that the title company pays the lawyer but don't count on it.See question
My sister and I we're willed my mother's home which has a subsidy owed on it. I would like to give up my half of home inheritance to my sister. The property is in my mother's name. I spoke with the Washington state rural housing development, who t...
In order for the chain of title to be unbroken usually a probate of the will is opened and the personal representative conveys the title to the heir. There are tax implications that you should consult perhaps an accountant about. You could quit claim your one half interest to your sister or perhaps work with the personal representative to waive your inheritance right. If you record a quit claim deed now and it has an "after acquired title" provision title will shift to her if it is conveyed to you. I say these things without knowledge of the subsidy rules.See question
I am on the deed to the house and so is my ex husband. The mortgage is in his name. I want to sell the house. The house was awarded to me in the divorce, he never removed himself from the deed.
I recommend that you require your es to quit claim his interest to you before you list the property. This can be compelled by the Court if it comes to that. Most title companies will require that a deed from him be recorded before you close, so you risk delays and difficulty closing unless you take care of that first.See question
My mother/father-in-law own a property worth $1 million plus. My sister/brother- in-law cosigned for a refinance of the property for the parents in 2012. As a result, they were added to the deed of the property. My mother in law died 1/2/2016....
Some thoughts about your situation. If your sister-in-law helped refinanced the property, she may not be on the deed. If she is on the deed, then her ownership would not be affected by your mother-in-law's death. It sounds very much like the property needs to be probated. It is the job of the personal representative to administer the will. You can't very well analyze this without seeing what the title looks like. If the decedent is married, if the property is otherwise community property, then she cannot divest the surviving spouse of his interest.
It strikes me that this is probably a simple situation made confusing looking by you not having all the information you need.See question

Are you talking about an assignment of a purchase agreement? Customarily those are not assignable by the buyer to a third aprty. If this is a three way agreement, then you may be better off starting anew. Your use of a lawyer might be better put to beginning with a review of whatever it is that is being assigned. That is the usual first step before addressing the assignment.See question
