My son is purchasing a home from me on a 30 year loan. His payments are always up to date. Right now he needs some startup cash for a computer business and has asked if I can "loan" him money, by way of not making payments to my account for the next six months. He will get a notarized statement to the effect that he will pick up the payments as they are now after the gap. He will then stick to the original 30 year loan documents. This would continue the loan for an extra six months.JA: Because real estate law varies from place to place, can you tell me what state this is in?Customer: The house is in California and I am a Washington state resident. The loan was contracted in California.JA: Has any paperwork been filed?Customer: Not yet. He is waiting for my reply.JA: Anything else you want the lawyer to know before I connect you?Customer: No,

Florida HOA. My board just sent a covenant amendment to the

Florida HOA. My board just sent a covenant amendment to the board attorney telling him exactly what they want stated for renter applications and terms, including annual rentals and monthly. The board attorney sent back an entirely different amendment completely ignoring what they sent him. I say they wasted their money, and he acted improperly in writing a different amendment. Also, I am on the rental committee. Should I not be able to request a copy of the rental amendment when the board gets it for review?
