I'm interested in a parcel being offered "free and
Hi. I'm interested in a parcel being offered "free and clear" by a county in PA. Problem is that the property has no prior deed found by the county's title search although they have the metes and bounds. They also have the name of the previous owner and the amount he paid for it but no further information. Since the free and clear sale indicates that a court has removed all liens and the prior owners have been notified of the pending sale, can this sale even be legal if they don't know the whereabouts of the owner? Also, most importantly, can this property be "cured" so that it can be used. All I would have is a tax deed, or is that all I would need?

I recently closed on a house (got the key and everything), started to move into the house and then found out that there was a substantial lien against the house submitted before the title company could get to the court house. What protections do I have in case the Sellers can't settle the lien?
A friend is about to sell s plane and an old Security
A friend is about to sell his plane and an old Security Agreement dated February 7, 1983 in favor of Security Pacific National Bank in CA has surfaced in the FAA title search. That Bank has since been bought by Bank of America in 1999. We believe that the appropriate Satisfaction was never filed with the FAA to release this encumbrance. Is there a California statute of limitations that would effectively release this 33 year old encumbrance?

My home is in Los Angeles County. My neighbor and I share
My home is in Los Angeles County. My neighbor and I share adjacent driveways. Both driveways begin perpendicular to the street but then curve in opposite directions ending up in garages that are parallel to the street. There are numerous homes like this. Currently, there is no wall or hedge along the property line where the driveways begin (just flat driveway) until the driveways start to curve away from each other. To the best of my knowledge, it has been this way since the homes were built decades ago.The problem is that my neighbor now wants to build either a hedge or a wall just on the inside of his property line. He does not intend to use his driveway . . . as a driveway. When complete, it will make ingress/egress very difficult for me. They are not receptive to my concern. I believe that there is a reason why there is no wall or hedge along the initial portion of the driveways – perhaps some kind of minimum radius of opposing driveways such that where they cross over, no obstruction is permitted. I could not find anything in the LAC municipal code. What legal arguments can I use to stop them?
