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?

The Manufactured Housing Division of NV is wanting me to

The Manufactured Housing Division of NV is wanting me to leave the Mobile Home I'm living in because it has no paper trail to say it's currently up to code, i.e., no permits were applied for to show how it ended up on this lot, in this park, completely remodeled. Am I eligible for a hardship variance as I have no other place to live and no way to afford to do everything they're asking?

I signed an offer on a condominium with total of 16 steps

I signed an offer on a condominium with total of 16 steps based on my receiving a knee operation which would allow me to walk up the stairs. Within 4 days I canceled the agreement after discovering my heart problems may prevent me from having the knee operation. The seller refuses to return my deposit based on my changed medical circumstances and has relished the property. What can I do?

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.

I bought a townhouse in what I was told was an up and coming

I bought a townhouse in what I was told was an up and coming neighborhood, intending to live in it forever. 3 years later I found myself on permanent disability and needing to move out of state to care for my elderly mother. I kept paying the mortgage, even taking an interest only loan for 2 years. Since property values had dropped dastically, I rented out the house to cover payments, at the same time going in debt to rent a place near mom. Finally I had to move in with her. Now I cannot get/keep renters as the neighborhood has deteriorated severely. It was never my intention or desire to be a landlord - this is not investment property. Now I owe 75K on a place I will never return to and cannot rent. If I could sell it, it would only go for 25-30K, with no improvement expected. The bank will not consider reducing the loan and is very resistant to a short sale. Since my disabilities affect my ability to interact and reason, I looked for a lawyer to deal with the bank, Lawyers in my state say they don't know the other state's laws. Lawyers in that state don't return my emails. I know I need to let the house go, but I hate to walk away without a word. What can I do and where can I find someone to represent me?
