We purchased a timeshare in CA back in 1983, which we paid

We purchased a timeshare in CA back in 1983, which we paid in full already. In 2012 we filed for C7 and the timeshare was dismissed. We thought that was the end of it but now we have received a Notice of Delinquent Assessment and Claim of Lien asking us to pay $4,798 plus $425 for foreclosure fees.We had our home here in TN foreclosed upon three years after our C7, and have had to wait until 2017 to purchase another home. Will this timeshare foreclosure add time to this waiting period and injure our credit which we have worked hard to build? Is there anything we can do? We currently live in TN and the timeshare is in CA.

What can be done in this situation... My friend has his name

What can be done in this situation...My friend has his name on a deed with a rental property he used to own with his ex-wife (10 years since divorce) and he wants to have his name removed. He is listed as the contact for tax purposes and has had his tax returns garnished by the IRS because she didn't pay the tax bill on the rental property income. The property is not mentioned in their divorce decree/MSA however she has possession of a handwritten note of him giving her the property. Is there anyway for him to recover the $3k-$4k that he has already paid? If so, how?Thank you!

Myself and 5 other students are supposed to be renting a house in Indianapolis, IN starting Aug 1, 2016 thru July 2017. We have been trying to contact the landlord for awhile with little or no success as Aug 1 is quickly approaching. Last night we found out that in June 2013 the house we will be renting went into foreclosure and in Dec 2014 the courts show "amended dismissed without prejudice" with a monetary award going to the plantiff and against our landlord. Two times prior to the judgement in Dec 2014 the property went up to sherriff's sale. Also found out that she filed bankruptcy Nov. 2015. Not sure where bankruptcy stands. Landlord is supposed to call us on Friday, July 29 to set up a time to meet with her and get $4800 from us that is due Aug 1. Not sure what we should do and we have a case # ***** the above court decision if that would be helpful

We have rented a property in Avon, Indiana last 4 years. I

We have rented a property in Avon, Indiana for the last 4 years. I was told that the property needs to be recorded if you are in the leased home for more than 3 years. If not, it voids the agreement. Does that mean that the lease agreement has to be for more than 3 years, or does it count if it's consecutive? There is a holdover clause in the agreement that we signed in 2011 but we haven't signed an agreement since that time. Please advise.

Does Chapter 22 of the Texas Business Organizations Code

Does Chapter 22 of the Texas Business Organizations Code override the existing HOA bY-Laws?Example: The By-Laws state that," The power to alter, amend, repeal or adopt new by-laws shall be vested in the members ( homeowners ) but such power may be delegated to the members of the Board of Directors if so empowered by a vote of a majority of the membership or Board of Directors if so empowered, present in person or by proxy before such a vote shall be valid, notification that said vote is to be taken must have been included in the notification required by Article IV, section 3 for the regular, special, or annual meeting at which the vote is being taken."My HOA has been amending the By-Laws in "pursuant to Chapter 22 of the Texas Business Organizations Code" and having them submitted to their lawyers who have them submitted to have them notarized by the county.No notices were sent out about a vote to provide them the authority to amend the By-Laws and no vote was held. They contend Chapter 22 overrides the amendment process stated in out HOA By-Laws.Are they correct?Thank you,M. Kelley

In COLORADO, is there a final judgement of sale on a foreclosure or is the authorization of sale considered the final judgement? I have a suit filed against the alleged lender but the sale has already gone through. I am planning on filing an amended complaint to add vacating or setting aside the sale (defendant hasn't answered the original complaint yet) but not sure if I have to wait until the sale is finalized before I try to vacate the sale
