Legal Answers
243 Questions Answered

Q. Buyer failed to provide earnest money or close per contract. What recourse is available?
A: If you initiate litigation, you may be prevented from selling the house to another person during the tenure of the lawsuit, since the real estate is the focal point of the lawsuit. Since there was no deposit given, you have a failure of consideration and you most likely have the opportunity to move on from that purchaser.
Q. If buyer has a friend do the inspection on house and the repairs and cost are inflated, what are your options as seller?
A: Then don’t sell them the house.
Q. If a mortgage to a lender says " less and except" a parcel that has been surveyed out, is that parcel NOT a lien?
A: Likely, the mortgage is not a lien on the property if it is precisely as you so stated.
Q. I bought a house with my dad and step mom. They are now getting divorced and she is claiming she is entitled to a third
A: If you examine the recorded deed you will get the answer.
Q. If mother and daughter own house together. If mother passes does the sibling have rights to that home
A: A thorough examination of the deed will disclose the answer.
Q. Is it a conflict of interest to use the same attorney as the owner for an exchange of a small undeveloped property?
A: Why don’t you suggest that you both use your attorney, and see how they respond.
Q. I am buying the house I rent and currently live in, should security dep be returned to me?
A: It should be, provided that when you close you don’t raise issues as to the condition of the house that you may have created.
Q. I bough a land on 2017 and now they said half of the land I bough isn't mine, what do I need to do on this?
A: It would be wise to file a claim under your title insurance policy.
Q. My Daughters name is on the deed to a house of her ex husband. Is she libel for anything in regards to that home?
A: If the mortgage isn’t paid and the lender forecloses she could lose her interest in the house. Further, if someone is injured at the house and she is sued and loses she could have a judgment filed against her.
