As a former "big Bank" real estate and contracts attorney, I love to demystify complicated real estate and financial legal concepts and problems for people who are frustrated, "spinning their wheels" with incompetent or dismissive real estate or banking "professionals."

I hate when someone finds themselves at a legal disadvantage - they're "stuck" when they unknowingly relying on outdated or impractical information and forms off of the "internet." People often get in trouble when they base their legal decisions off of "outside chatter." They rely on the opinion of someone they hardly know, (or worse, friends or family members) who is NOT a licensed and experienced real estate or finance attorney, and frankly, has no "skin in the game."

For the above reasons, I actively write, publish and create books, articles, podcasts, slide presentations and newsletters -all designed to simplify complicated legal concepts related to real estate and finance. These resources are user -friendly and practical.

Legal Answers
143 Questions Answered

Q. Can a lawyer charge double just because theres two of us?
A: Your question raises more questions. However, generally speaking, representing multiple parties requires more work, so it will really depend on whether your legal interests are in line with each other or not.
Q. Do I have to group a house and additional lot together when remortgaging?
A: If the additional parcel and it's legal description was included in valuation of the property for the mortgage lender, then it should be included in the mortgage and encumbered by the same. If the title company 'missed" this parcel and this description initially, you may still have to correct this oversight under your 'compliance agreement" with the title company. The lender can take action against you as well, if indeed their loan was based in part on the additional security.
Q. Realtor failed to send my signed acceptance of offer b4 deadline and buyer walked. What is my recourse vs the realtor?
A: You should contact the realtor's broker to register you complaint. That's where you should start. The board of real estate has a grievance procedure as well. If all else fails, you might want to file a complaint with the Michigan's professional licensing division - LARA. Good luck, David
Q. Decease Step Mother Left no will, son name listed as one of the owners. Is my Father liable for the property still?
A: The question becomes "HOW" was your step mother's son left the home? What type of interest did he have on the deed? If your father's name is not listed on the property, what liability are your referring to, that he should have any concern about? Contact a real estate attorney who can review your documents. See also:
Q. Where can i find forms for quiet title?
A: There are no forms to quiet title to real estate. A quiet title action is performed by real estate attorneys. To quiet title is to litigate. If you have the time and experience to litigate a matter, and you are a licensed attorney, then you should feel right at home with the courts. Otherwise, check out this slide presentation: Five Reasons You May Not Even Need An Attorney Good luck! Remember, nothing of value is free.
Q. My mother in law bought us a house. Now she wants us to pay her back...
A: How unfortunate. If the intent was to give the money a gift, then generally speaking it will be considered a gift. Absent any documentation to the contrary - any promises or contracts as they relate to real estate must be in writing (Statute of Frauds).
Q. I just found out that in my dads will he said i would get his house, but now someone else owns it. Could i still get it?
A: You are missing some facts in between here. How long ago did your father leave the home to you in his will? What happened to the home from the date of death until now that there is a third party now owning the home? Your question begets more questions.
Q. Ex wife did not refinance loan for house from divorce and mortgage just increased $10,000 w/o my sig. Is this legal
A: You should not be held responsible for the additional monies that your wife took from the mortgage company after the divorce decree was entered. It is most likely that you will be held responsible for the debt prior to the new advances.
Q. My land contract owner will not let me pay it off early. I have the ability to do it now she refuses. What can I do?
A: The land contract provisions control however, generally speaking, Michigan law as well as federal law has certain restrictions concerning land contracts and pre-payment. Have a competent real estate attorney review your contract.
