Could a board of a Co-op Housing Association refuse to

Could a board of a Co-op Housing Association refuse to change/or add my son's name on the ownership shareholder certificate because I have a judgement? I want to highlight the fact that I just paid off the mortgage on it and got the release paperwork fromthe lender, and I don't owe anything to the Co-op as I have always paid my monthly fees. Does the board have the power to alert the private party who obtain a judgement against me and oppose the transfer of the ownership?

I am getting a divorce from my husband. My family attorney

I am getting a divorce from my husband. My family attorney says I can get our home and spousal support but I have concerns. We have a mortgage on the home and my income and credit score is not as high as my husband. I assume I would have to refi it under my name only. Is it possible to have another relative as a co-signer? I am the sole heir to my mother's estate. I wonder if the ownership could be together? I need to know my options.

Hello, I am a real estate agent. I have had two different homeowners tell me recently that a judge (same judge in both cases) make them use a specific realtor to list their house (same realtor). Both homeowners were intending to hire me to represent the home sale until the judge said otherwise. What can I do about this?

I am moving to Cary, NC. Back in May, my wife and I

Hello,I am moving to Cary, NC. Back in May, my wife and I purchased a pre-construction home in a neighborhood that has at least 2 phases, we are the early part of phase 2. We went through the process of picking our lot, the home model and all the upgrades. To date, the builder has $25k of deposit, 12K for the home 13k for the interior upgrades. We were awaiting our pre-construction meeting with the builder where he walks us through the process. Well, today we were notified that there is some sort of town ordinance that requires some sidewalks be connected. What we learned is that the side walk that is planned to be in the front of our house, is going to run along the side of our home and connect to the cul de sac in the back our home. The sidewalk will impede on our property for the length 75 feet and width of 2.5 feet and the home will be 10.5 feet from the edge of the property line. Had we known about this sidewalk at the time of purchase we would not have never purchased the lot. We expressed our displeasure with the realtor for the builder and asked to find out what our options are, like having the builder put up a fence at his cost... My question is do we have an recourse to get out of our contract and get our deposit back if we cannot come to some agreement with the builder?

I'm replacing a front door, side panels and transom. We

Hello,I'm replacing a front door, side panels and transom. We ordered through Lowes on 06/24/16. It was a custom order and Lowe's had indicated would take about 45 days and then they would contact to have it installed. The new panels and door are more decorative. The original door is black, the one we ordered is white. At some point, I don't remember the exact date I sent a request to the HOA for approval. I estimating the installation date as either 08/12/16 or 08/19/16 (I didn't keep a copy of what I sent them). We never heard anything. In the meantime, Lowe's called about a week ago to schedule the installation and the date is set for 8/29/16 this monday. I finally received a response from the HOA today 08/26/16 denying the request on the basis that the door has to match the shutters. Our shutters are black and the replacement door is white. Their denial letter is actually dated 08/03/16 but not postmarked until 08/25/16. Obviously, its too late to cancel the order or change the color of the door. Would I be able to fight this if it becomes an issue?
