I have a signed lease in Pennsylvania. A man and women (not married) were living together. The woman only signed the lease. They have been with me for about 3 years. The last 4 months, they have not paid the rent. I filed a landlord tenant complaint, and won the complaint. Unfortunately, I did not use the woman (leaseholder) name. I filed in the cohabitant male name. He appeared and did not contest paying a partial amount. He has not paid the balance. He told me the woman comes and goes and is not living there at all times. Should I go through the complaint again in the actual leaseholder's name, or can I evict based on the judgement that I won?

My father died last August and in his will my brother and I

My father died last August and in his will my brother and I split his possessions 50/50. He left a home with a small mortgage. My brother and I have agreed that I can have the house. I contacted the bank with the mortgage to inform them I would be taking over mortgage. They say I cannot assume it and must get a new mortgage myself. I thought under federal law I was allowed to assume mortgage. The state is Illinois

I am trying establish ownership of minerals underlying 6 lots

I am trying establish ownership of minerals underlying 6 lots in Oklahoma County, Oklahoma inherited by my wife. When we contacted the oil company producing the wells that included these minerals, they told my wife that after reviewing the deed, she did not have ownership of the minerals. Knowing that my father-in-law (now deceased) never sold minerals, I decided to investigate further. I obtained a copy of the lease and after a description of the property, the deed read:"LESS and EXCEPT all of the oil, gas, and other minerals in and under said property which have been heretofore reserved or conveyed. SUBJECT to rights-of-way, easements and restrictive covenants of record."This is all very confusing since land deeds on agricultural land containingthe wording "Less and except oil, gas, and other minerals" has always reserved the minerals to the person selling said property.My questions are these:(1) Does my wife have ownership of the minerals?(2) If not, do leases signed by my father-in-law prior to the sale of the property grant my wife the revenue produced by these wells until they are re-leased?The wells on this property are very, very old and produced a very small amount. I just need to get the situation resolved.
