A friend and I purchased a home together as joint tenants. Recently, my friend asked if her daughter could move in with us temporarily and I agreed. Now, she said that her boyfriend is also moving in with us and that there is nothing I can do to stop it. I'm trying to find out what my rights are here. Thank you.
JA: The Estate
Lawyer will need to help you with this. Have you consulted a lawyer yet?
Customer: No, I just had the conversation with her and was researching about it.
JA: Please tell me everything you can about this issue so the Estate Lawyer can help you best. Is there anything else the Estate Lawyer should be aware of?
Customer: There are no agreements in writing in regards ***** ***** people moving in, or not. I originally was purchasing the property alone but we added her to the deed at closing. I paid the $954 in legal fees for closing and $10,000 down payment, the rest is owner financed $30,000 for ten years. My partner gave me her portion of the down payment at a later date $5,000 but did not share in the legal fees.
JA: OK. Got it. I'm sending you to a secure page on JustAnswer so you can place the $5 fully-refundable deposit now. While you're filling out that form, I'll tell the Estate Lawyer about your situation and then connect you two.
