Legal Answers
15 Questions Answered

Q. My father sold his home. He is now being sued for taxes that were not found at the closing of the sale. Is he responsibl
A: If these are taxes which he should have paid, he probably owes them nonetheless. However, it is strange that they were not discovered at the closing (since it was done through a title company). Usually, if it was something the title company missed, they would take care of the taxes for the insured buyer, and possibly pursue your dad. It is not possible to give any solid advice without know all the details.
Q. A guest of Condo A causes water to flow into Condo B. Is Condo A owner responsible for guest actions?
A: Depending on the declaration, bylaws and rules of the UOA, the insurance company may be right. But there is also the possibility that you might recover against the guest, or even against the owner on the theory that the owner was negligent in entrusting the unit to this particular guest (something of a stretch). I don't know if you have your own insurance protecting you against damage to the interior of your unit. Most condominium owners do and should have such insurance and, if so, put the matter in the hands of your own insurer. You might also check to see what kind of coverage the Association of Unit Owners has.
Q. Quit claim deed to add wife
A: I think you would be well advised to consult an attorney. Probably a bargain and sale deed would better suit your intention, but the way you word the granting clause can make a difference as to what type of interest she acquires. This is a job for a lawyer.
