5 Questions Answered
- Q. If homestead property is inherited by a son, does the homestead rights get transferred as well.
- A: The California statutory homestead exemption applies to any owner of property; Once title is in your name, it applies to you.
- Q. The seller, and the buyer have signed a counter offer. The purchase agreement seller didn't sign can seller back out?
- A: Your question is incomplete- you state that the seller signed the counter - did they accept the counter, or just acknowledge receipt of it? Also, what is the difference between the "seller," and the "purchase agreement seller?"
- Q. Can a lender record a deed of trust vested differently from the title to the property?
- A: Such a document can be recorded, but it may cause issues for the lender in the future if they want to conduct a foreclosure. However this should not be a concern to the owner, though; if they sell the property, the loan would be paid off. If the buyer assumes the old loan instead, however, their title insurer may list the issue as an exception.

- Q. Are there any precedents in California regarding prescriptive easement?
- A: What the judge probably meant was that you cannot normally get a prescriptive easement for exclusive use of the property. An explanation can be found in my blog located here: http://tinyurl.com/4yoy3wc
- Q. What is the difference between a deed and a grant deed?
- A: Any deed that is not a 'Grant" Deed is probably a "quitclaim" deed. A Grant deed includes some guaranties, as described im my blog posting here: http://tinyurl.com/3boroqq
