What is a XOME auction in a short sale? We've tried to become pretty educated about the short sale process and we've never run across the teamWhy would a lender participate in one if there's a reasonable offer on the table from a very interested potential buyer--why wouldn't the lender/servicer just negotiate with the person very interested in the house who has the offer on the table? Is there a way for us to learn the lender's short sale qualifications to know why the offer was rejected? Given current market values and the repairs the house needs, the offer is very fair.

My girlfriend owns a house that has her ex-mother-in-law as a co-signer and on the title. The Ex-Mother-in-law, has no money into the house, down-payment\mortgage payments have all been from my girlfriend. The agreement between her/ex-husband/ex-mother-in-law had always been that she would get the house in the divorce. The ex-husband signed a quit-claim at the time of the divorce for the house. Now that the divorce is done with the relationship has soured and her ex-husband has convinced his mother not to sign her quit-claim deed unless they are given half of the current equity in the house. What are our options? They are threatening to sue and force the sale of the house so they can have half the equity.JA: Because real estate law varies from place to place, can you tell me what state this is in?Customer: MNJA: Has any paperwork been filed?Customer: Which paperwork?JA: Anything else you want the lawyer to know before I connect you?Customer: In the divorce decree, it states that my girlfriend is to receive the house.

I have a life estate that was valued at 70% at the time the trust was written and at the time of my partners death. My lawyer tells me that the life estate was devalued by the federal govt to 26% in Feb., 2016. The house was sold June, 2016. Is the federal govt statute or mandate retroactive? Our trust was written in 2006 and my partner died in 2014. I appreciate your help as I don't believe my lawyer is acting in my best interest.

My home is separated by a fence from my neighbor. On his
My home is separated by a fence from my neighbor. On his side of the fence a garage sits 2 feet away from the fence near the back of the lots. 20 Years ago the lady that owned the property allowed me to fence the 2foot wide strip of land along the garage wall into my property. I built two small pieces of fence and attached them from the fence to the garage corners. Now my neighbor wants to paint his garage grey and wants to paint my wall as well. I don't want it painted as my house is white. I believe I own the strip of land and thus the wall through accession. Do I? Also their property has changed hands twice without anyone questioning the property lines.
I have a video/audio surveillance camera that i pointed out
i have a video/audio surveillance camera that i pointed out my front window and back door to protect my property.damage has been done to my car out front as well as out back. my neighbor says I'm in violation of pa law bc the scope of the cam catches a bit of her fenced yard and I'm invading her privacy bc she has a child. we live in a row of townhouses on a public road out front and have a public street to our left that can easily view all of our backyards so i dont think I'm in violation. also can i have audio on my camera its placed in my window sill? window open or closed? or do i have to turn audio completely off.
My tenants in Maryland have contacted my Property Management
Hello,My tenants in Maryland have contacted my Property Management and let us know that the front door handle has broken off. They sent a picture of it to show that they put on another handle and deadbolt.I know as being a tenant myself that if something like this happens to tell the landlord and to work things out with either paying for the door knob through deducting it from next months rent or the landlord just buys a new one and puts it on.Since I am out of state, I can not physically be there to do this. My Property Management would probably hire someone to do it which will cost more than the door knob! I'm doing what I can to fix every nook and cranny for our tenants. I do care that things need fixing and I am trying to do it asap but also to where it is not costing me major money. (In honesty, our tenants would just like us to build them a new house with all new fixtures if it were up to them! - My opinion) The door knob the tenants chose is awful. It doesn't match to where the older version was. The first one was a $100 or more door knob that is in the main entry way of the house. I am going to try to sell this house next year and I want it to be presentable and not trashy or uncared for.Can I just buy a door knob, ask my PM to get my tenants to install it? Can the tenants refuse? I've read so much for tenant vs landlord dealings, this is one that is confusing on what to do. I know these things are deductible but honestly, I just don't have the $160 for a new door knob AND paying someone to install it!! Last time we had our PM get someone to fix a kitchen drawer and it cost us $200 out of pocket!!!!!! That's insane!!!I've heard that if the landlord is TRYING to fix the problem that the tenant(s) can't do much except maybe complain. What are our rights as landlords? Obviously, we can not make our tenants do this. How do we get our PM to work BETTER for us in a legal way? I never know what to say to these people!First time landlord,Sarah
