Q. My name is on house I built in '84'. Added daughter & son in law in 2005. I moved out in 2006, what rights do I have?
A: If you added your daughter and son and law and kept your name on title, you have rights as an owner of the home. If you Quitclaimed to them and took your name off the deed you are no longer an owner. But you can force them to refinance because your mortgage agreement provides that you cannot transfer title without triggering the loan's "due on sale" clause. This will have repercussions to your credit as well, so you really need to consult a lawyer, with all your documentation, to be sure what to do next.
Q. Is it aginst the law for a non profit church to rent the parsonage out for 8 years
A: It is not illegal for a nonprofit organization to rent property.
Q. Who is responsible if a tenant leaves utilities past due before moving out in MO if all utilities are in tenants name?
A: Between the landlord and tenant, the tenant is responsible. But the utility companies will usually go after whomever they can get to pay and they will not turn utilities on until they are paid, so the burden often falls on the landlord. The landlord is then stuck trying to go after the tenant for the costs.
Q. If I lived in a house for 13 years and it was three years behind on taxes and the owner decided he didn't want it and it

Q. If I have a Missouri collector’s deed and want to give the property to my father, what do I need to do to make it happen
