Q. Can a realtor collect rental commission, without HOA approval?
A: the realtors ability to collect rent is likely only governed by the rental contract. If rent is transfer to the home owner then the realtors commission on the rent is typically paid at the same time.
Q. Did you have 30 days or 60 days to inform a tenant weather a least we'll be we renewed or not
A: Typically the lease agreement will reference the time period on a tenant electing to renew a lease or the landlord electing to not renew the lease. If the lease is silent typically the court will interpret it to be a reasonable time and there is not a hard and fast rule but it would likely be closer to 30 days.
Q. I cosigned on a car that someone else damage .can i file a small claim in court?
A: Yes. If the amount of damages are less than $5,0000.00. You will need to be able to prove that the other person did the damages and you will need the testimony of a body shop person to prove up the amount of damages.
Q. Can family members get access to an estate before an inventory of the assets is done?
A: Personal property of a decedent can be taken by family or anyone who can get physical access to the decedenta home or where the property is located. ie: jewelry, furniture ect. Unfortunately all to often family can swarm in and take property that they are not entitled to. It does not make it legal.
Q. Can I be sued along with the corporation?
A: Typically the only way that you can be sued on a business debt is if you were a personal guarantor on the loan originally. If you did not ever personally guarantee the loan, then you need to seek an attorney to respond to the lawsuit. If you did sign the personal guarantee, then it appears that you are a proper party to the lawsuit. Just FYI - The divorce court does not have the power to take your name off the loan paperwork. Also the fact that you have been out of the business since 10/2015 also will not take your name off of the loan. You may need to seek to have your ex-husband seek to refinance the business loan and have your name removed.
Q. Have realtor as listing agent, refused to do open house. We did ourselves. 2 buyers/offers have come through.
A: Your real estate contract will control whether you have to pay a commission. I suggest that you talk with an attorney and have the attorney review your real estate contract and then advise you on how to proceed.
Q. Who's in the right when rent money comes up missing?
A: Ultimately, it is the tenants responsiblity to deliver the rent to the landlord. Although it will not be what you will like to hear I think that you will have to make up that missing rent payment and likely pay the fees. Unless you have some type of proof the landlord lost or is attempting to keep the check and not give you credit I think you are obligated to to pay the rent and keep seeking to get the money order back and prosecute the person who stole it if you can find them.
Q. Am selling mobile home in Pennsylvania tho I now live in Florida.What need to do with title and do I need to be THERE?
A: I suggest that you repost this question under Pennsylvania contracts section. You need a Pennsylvania attorney to answer this question.
Q. Lease will terminate in 5 days. I haven't received new lease or notice to vacate. Rights if new lease isn't agreeable?
A: Yes. The management company should follow the terms of the lease agreement. I have no idea why the rental agency has not produced a new lease. Ultimately all that you can do is follow the terms of the lease and hope that they do the same. I suggest that you may want to go to their business in person to see if you can get better answers.
