I am a Tenant and wth 3 kids I recently renewed my lease

I am a Tenant and wth 3 kids I recently renewed my lease 02/01/2017 the office called me the last day to renew because I forgot about it and we did with my partner. my partner moved out of my apartment more than a month ago 03/01/2017, I called my landlord to remove him but they refused. The Landlord found out I have 3 kids and so they send a letter saying we are over ocupants they gave me 21 days to solve the issue. I work part time my income is low so they asked me to get a co-signer because I'm not making enough income to stay in the 2 bedrooms apartment. Today is the 20th day of the notice they send to me and I have a co-signer now but they have made up a decision for me to vacate or move to a 3 bedroom apartment with my 3 kids, 7 years old twins and 23 Months oldToddler.

A real estate contract One to Four Single Family Residential

A real estate contract One to Four Single Family Residential Sales Contract. Their are 2 parties, Buyer and Seller. When the Sales Contract is signed, it is signed by the Buyer and the Seller. At closing, HUD is signed by Buyer and Seller. When the property is paid for, it is paid for by a S-Corporation owned by the Buyer. The monies comes from a corporate account and the check clearly states the corporation. The consideration of the contract from the Buyer to the Seller is from a Corporation. A week after the sale of the property, the S-Corporation puts within its file a Conveyance Memo, conveying the title from the Corporation to the Buyer for the sum of $1.00.1.) If the Buyer wishes to sue the Seller, who must be named in the suit? Only the Buyer vs. Seller, or must the Corporation be named as well since at the time of closing the Corporation made the consideration.2) If the corporation is party to the suit, under Texas Law, if I am correct, the corporation must be represented by an attorney (is this for "any" corporation)?

I closed on a house on March 10th but it turned out they

I closed on a house on March 10th but it turned out they tricked me into signing paperwork and then told me the funding wouldn't be released until March 17th. They called it a dry closing. I did not receive any paperwork because the seller didn't have a clear title due to probate issues. On March 17th, I was told that the funding was released but the documents still have not been recorded and I still do not have any paperwork. They sent me to this app called sure close where I can see the paperwork I signed but the recording documents are still showing as outstanding. Should I get a lawyer?JA: Because real estate law varies from place to place, can you tell me what state this is in?Customer: FloridaJA: Has any paperwork been filed?Customer: I do not know. My lender is vague. I asked him if the paperwork had been filed and he said he would ask?JA: Anything else you want the lawyer to know before I connect you?Customer: I was very specific with the realtor and the lender that I did not want to deal with any probate issues on this house. The day before the closing date of Feb. 24th they said the title company screwed up and asked for a two week extension. I said that if we could not close on March 10th, I was walking away from this house. They lied to me to get me to sign the paperwork on March 10th. Now I can't get anyone to give me a straight answer.

I live in Michigan, am weeks away from being 70 and am single. Due to financial and health issues in Oct of 2016 I sent a hardship packet to the bank, requested a deed in lieu of but had to do a short sale, one interested party has put down an offer on the home 3 weeks ago and still no word of approval or denial, last week I received a notice that on 4-12-17 the house will be foreclosed on, I received a letter from an attorney stating I owe $3,150 in arrears and $68.20 in late fees from March first when the letter did not arrive until 3-9-17. I want the bank to take responsibility for the home as I live soley on Social Security, I cannot afford any deficiencies or any other upkeep on the house. I moved out of the house Nov 7 2016 and into HUD low income apt. Will I end up owing the Gov taxes on this mess which I cannot afford either? How should I proceed? The bank is dragging their feet.

I moved to Rochester, NY and ended up buying a house with

I moved to Rochester, NY and ended up buying a house with the intention of settling in here for the long haul. Right after I moved into my house, I had terrible times at work. I started a job search out of fear of termination due to constant conflict after they bait-and-switched me out as staff augmentation for another company.I worked through two recruiters and could not find a suitable place to work in the area after a month of searching. There wasn't even an interview or a phone screen- nothing available. Using my connections, I found a job in 1 week and was given an offer letter for a position back in California where I moved from.I signed an affidavit of occupancy because this is an FHA loan. I have no intention of getting another loan anytime soon and I'm going to just rent for a time in CA. The thing is, I also wish to rent out my property here because I would have to sell it upside-down.What do I do? I am worried about this affidavit of occupancy, but I've also heard that my circumstance may be an exception. I've also heard I may have to document this somehow. Please help

I am in a condominium, I own my unit free & clear, and I

I am in a condominium, I own my unit free & clear, and I want to get a reverse morgage , but when I applied to a company, they submitted the condo's docs to HUD which came back saying the Board could not have the power to reject a proposal to sell. I went to the Board and they would not change the docs. Can they legally prevent me from getting a reverse by not changing the docs?JA: Because real estate law varies from place to place, can you tell me what state the association is in?Customer: FloridaJA: Has any paperwork been filed?Customer: Yes. The company that was going to process & give me the reverse, took all the condominium rules, docs, financial statements, etc. When they submitted them to HUD, I was told unless the docs were change they would not approve.JA: Anything else you want the lawyer to know before I connect you?Customer: Do I have any legal right to challenge the Board's decision?

I just purchased a home with an HOA. They do not allow dogs,

I just purchased a home with an HOA. They do not allow dogs, but do allow service animals. I have an emotional support animal prescribed by a psychologist. In my pre purchase interview with the board I reviewed their rules and regulations and checked off boxes on each line stating their rules. One of them said no pets. I signed the document and they gave me a purchase approval document to include in closing of property. I moved in two days ago on a Saturday. I had plannned to go today to give office my letter from my psychologist prescribing the ESA. The HOA members upon seeing my dog told me I lied to them in my interview. They never specially asked me if I had a dog. They say they did. I explained to them that I signed the screening document acknowledging the rules and explained that I did not consider a service animal a pet and thought that since they do allow service animals as required by federal law their was no problem with me doing anything counter to their rules and federal and state laws. They are now threatening me saying they will "review" the matter and determine if I can have my service animal live with me. They also stated that an emotional support dog is not recognized as a service animal under the law and they can decide if they allow me to have the dog live with me. My previous research found that an emotional support animal is absolutely equally recognized by federal law as a service animal just as is a service animal that helps a person with physical disabilities in matters of legal protection to have the animal live with you in any community; with the HOA or landlord not having any right to restrict breed or size. I feel I am being unfairly and illegally discriminated against because of my mental health status. What are you comments on my situation? I look forward to your reply. Eugene Bueno(###) ###-####

My parents died last year and they set up a trust of which

Hello. My parents died last year and they set up a trust of which my brother is executor. We are selling the house, which is on one parcel of land, (1.27 acres), and another vacant lot, (separate but adjacent and buildable .48 acres) and my brother signed a purchase agreement with an FHA buyer in order to get an appraisal. The appraisal came in about $15,000-$20,000 lower than expected, and in that appraisal it says that due to FHA regulation, no value is assigned "surplus" land. Are we now bound by this appraisal that gives no value to a piece of property that clearly has value?JA: Since estate law varies from place to place, can you tell me what state this is in?Customer: White Lake Township, Michigan, which is northeast of the Detroit area.JA: Has any paperwork been filed?Customer: Well, the purchase agreement my brother signed.JA: Anything else you want the lawyer to know before I connect you?Customer: The only other issue is that the purchase agreement does not have the correct name of my parents' trust, it is in my mother's name only.JA: Got it. I'm sure you'll come up with a good name.Customer: Will someone contact me?
