Ask a landlord-tenant lawyer and get answers ASAP
Good morning. My name is ***** ***** I look forward to helping you.
Can you provide me a bit more information? In what state are you located? Is there any evidence that she advanced money in some way? And, if so, is there any evidence that this was a loan rather than a gift? Thanks.
Yes, I'm typing your response. Thanks for your patience!
Thanks so much for your quick reply. She's going to have a hard time with this. One, before she can do anything, she would have to file suit against you and be awarded a judgment. Two, if she were to file such a suit, she would have the burden of proving that this was a loan intended to be repaid and not a gift. In personal relationships, courts are not amused that when a relationship ends, one of the parties tries to recharacterize what was intended as a gift as a loan. It becomes a he said/she said situation and since she has the burden of proof by bring the suit, she's not likely to win the suit.
