Q. Hi, actually my parked car got hit and I got the accident report from the officer and it’s shown the person who’s hit my
A: Unfortunately, you are going to be stuck. You can sue the driver who hit you, but it is probable that any lawyer who would take the case will charge you on an hourly basis, which will cost several thousand dollars. Further, if you win against the other driver, if he has no insurance, he is unlikely to have other assets to pay you. This is why you should have collision coverage.
Q. If I own a parcel of ground with 2 other people can I sign a lease agreement on the ground without one of the parties.
A: Not unless you have a Power of Attorney that authorizes you to sign for the other person.
Q. Re. PA real estate, joint tenancy with the right of survivorship, or simply joint tenancy:
A: If the deed does not specify that it is to be a joint tenancy with right of survivorship, the property is owned a a tenancy in common. Under those circumstances, the boyfriend can bequeath his half interest by Will or can convey it during lifetime.
Q. 1) Three names on the house deed. Are we all equal owners ? 2) Can "two out of three" agree to sell the house ?
A: 1. If the deed does not specify otherwise, yes. 2. No.
Q. How do I find out if my Pennsylvania dentist ever had any malpractice cases against him?
A: You would have to check the indices of the Prothonotary/Clerk of Courts/Clerk of Judicial Records for the County where the dentist is located. Since you are not a lawyer and would not have access to the electronic records, you would probably have to go to the office personally and request assistance to do the search.
Q. My mother and girlfriend own a house together. I slipped on ice and broke me ankle requiring surgery. Can I sue
A: Yes, you can sue. However, you need to meet with a lawyer to evaluate the case to determine if the case would have merit.
Q. My General Durable POA and my Living Will Declaration show my spouse as my attorney-in-fact/surrogate; secondary is my
A: You will require new documents.
Q. I am a sole heir administering an estate with no will. Do I need to transfer a home into my name before selling it?
A: You need not transfer real estate to your name, personally, before selling, as Administrator/Administrtrix, to a third party.
Q. How do I have a deed put into the estate's name, in order to sell it and have it transferred to the buyer?
A: Property does not get put into the estate’s name in order to be sold. It is simply conveyed by a deed from the Executor/Administrator to the purchasing party. However, a deed like that is a special deed and must be prepared by the lawyer representing the estate.
