How do i "convey" the 1%. do i need a lawyer to draw up a sale of 1% of the unit. Does this have a name? What would be the best way to word the right to repurchase or right of first refusal? can you give me an example of a document. As i am unemployed and looking for work having my roommate live there helps me not loose the condo. the condo president has always discriminated against me. for example, other unit owners have rented for longer periods of time. He has also placed a lein on my condo in the past for having a friend live with me for free. this cost me over 5000 to settle while he himself has a live in girlfriend and others have had friend live in their units for years. I am afraid of going through that again and would like to get this done as soon and as safely as possible. I do not want my roommate to own the unit and if she decides to leave i want to be able to reverse this easily too. i have recieved a letter from the president that states he wants me to pay the rental fee of $200 and then he states " we are asking you to terminate their stay here. if you do not want to follow our rules, by-laws or amendments i'll simply tun the matter over to the lawyer to start eviction proceedings at your expense " Is this possible? i am willing to pay the 200 but can he make a lawyer evict my roommate at my expense?
thank you so much. I would like a form of the deed and a document for the other part if you can aswell for the agreement stateing i have the right to purchase the 1% interest for a price and right of first refusal. Can i make the purchase price low like $1 or does it have to be something else. When that happens and she no longer lives there do i go through the same process of of taking a new deed to the city and submitting it? whould she then be the grantor? As far as the other part about discrimination. I would like to be able to do that but do not know how. since the last time when he had given me all the trouble about my unemployed best friend staying with me i had to pay 5000 to have the lawyer drop it. my friends father who was a lawyer advised me to do it because in order to defend myself in court he said it would cost me more. How could i prove he is decriminating against me? My neighbor for example has had is girlfriend and her child live in his unit for over a year while he was living in africa and he stated that all he did was warn the president not to interfere. is it just easier to do the deed. Is there any way that i won't be able to get the 1% back? is it very risky to do this. sorry about all these questions. this is just very stressful for me and i want to be able to get this taken care of correctly and safely. thanks again.
thanks again, i'm just want to be clear. do you think i should notify him in writing first of having spoken to a lawyer and that he is unable to selectively enforce? or should i go head with the deed right away? In the mean time should i pay the rental fee? In the past he put a lein on my condo for not paying the rental fee because it states somewhere in the laws that guests over 3 weeks are considered renters. That is why i had all those fees. he for sure has not paid a rental fee for his girlfriend nor has anyone else living with someone. Will he be able to go to the condo lawyer and make me pay fees for an eviction from my unit without my permission? if i do the deed to my roommate can she somehow later refuse to sign a deed giving the 1% back to me? can a make a document up stating that she will deed it back once she moves out and or the terms of her payments to me for the 1%? should i have her make a deed up giving it back to me at the same time? how would this look?
that sounds doable! thanks so much. i will do the deed but what type of document do i need to have with her in order to be able to get that 1% back?
