Legal Answers
41 Questions Answered

Q. Mom left house to 3 siblings.Probated deed to Estate of Mom.Taxes are still owed.1 lives in house. who respn for what?
A: As of now, all three heirs are responsible for the house since it is in your name I assume after probate. You can sign over the house but I would at least have him buy it from you. Totally your call.
Q. What legally qualifies as an event beyond my control?
A: Please hire an attorney. No way he should ever keep that money if those are all the facts
Q. How many days late is standard to send a pay or quit letter?
A: Whenever they are late on their payments you can send a pay or quit and then they have 5 days to pay from that point forward. After that you should file an unlawful detainer action to have them evicted and to recoup damages.
Q. If I now reside in VA and I need to provide a certified true copy of revocation of POA that was filed in South Carolina
A: It depends. You need to speak to an estate planning attorney like myself about this it could be a simple fix but it also could require a bit more
Q. My Mother recently died. My sister is executor of the estate. She is refusing to let the heirs even see the will.
A: You need an estate attorney which is something I handle. Would love to talk to you more about it. If your sister did in fact abuse her power of attorney then she could be liable.
Q. My house isn't paid off yet, and I want to know can I put the house in children name. How long is the process?
A: Yes you absolutely can you just need an attorney to draft a deed of gift for you. If you are no longer an owner your kids would likely then have to handle the mortgage
Q. Is it legal to modify or destroy property while it's under contract
A: Most likely no. I would definitely advise against that
Q. Can I provide independent services to a former client based on this agreement?
A: This is definitely a situation to be wary about and I would definitely avoid handling this matter privately.
Q. How can I collect on a 1/5/10 judgment for past rent on someone who moved out of VA, but will be in VA on a known date?
A: If you did not get a proper judgment against the defendant the first time you may be out of luck due to statute of limitations problems but speak to an attorney as they will need the whole story
