Legal Answers
8 Questions Answered
Q. In Real Estate law, is the Settlement Company liable for damages as a result of recording errors?
A: You may have a claim that is actionable. The problem, however, is that you may not be able to prove your case without investing substantially more than you lost for attorneys fees, court costs, discovery costs, and associated other costs. I suggest going to the settlement company directly and finding out what happened in your case. You may be able to ask for a refund to cover some of your costs. The costs for litigating would be substantial compared to the loss and a reasonable owner of the settlement company might be able to come up with a settlement that mitigates some or all of your loss. Good luck in this endeavor.
Q. Am I or my assets liable if add fiance to bank acct OR credit card, if a past Collections comes after her? Thanks.
A: The simple answer with this fact pattern is that you have liability for your cash in a bank account as it will be presumed that she owns half of the money prior to your marriage. This fact pattern is only presumed if the creditor comes after your jointly owned account. Adding your fiance to your credit cards is not an issue as the credit cards of an individual are not used to collect against a party. This action may increase the credit score of your fiance. After your marriage, a judgment against one party of the marriage is not a judgment against the marriage-owned assets. The legal principle here is referred to tenancy by the entireties. Good luck to you.
Q. I Have A Wrongful Detainer Case I Filed A Motion - - Motion Of Reconsideration
A: While you may have cited the correct code section dealing with reconsideration motions, the Judge does not have to find for you just because of that code section cite. You must provide a legal basis with additional facts to show the judge that the initial ruling was wrong.
