I found out that my brother is renting the house to a friend. He claims the renter can only afford to pay $500.00 and It only covers utilities. Am I entitled to half the rent and we decide what to pay?. Also he has the utilities in my deceased mothers name 3 years after her death. Shouldn't the renter put the utilities in his own name?
Do I file a suit in small claims court to force a sale of assets or do I need to call a lawyer to represent me in another court?
What is a title search and how do I conduct one?
How is buying a house on auction different from a foreclosure?
