Structured Asset Mortgage investments II Inc. is filed suit against me, my wife and Countrywide Home Loans for the Deed of trust, and to establish a lien on my property, I don't have much money and can't afford a attorney. I have not made a payment on the property for over 7 years and now that the property value is going back up in Las Vegas, they are coming after my property. according to the papers I was served they do not have the deed of trust, and they have owned the loan since 2006. Do I have a chance to keep my home?JA: Since estate law varies from place to place, can you tell me what state this is in?Customer: NevadaJA: Has any paperwork been filed?Customer: I was served paperwork from the district court, and I replied that there was not enough information for me to answer their statements, now they are waiting to setup a early case conference.JA: Anything else you want the lawyer to know before I connect you?Customer: only that seven years ago the lawyer I spoke to said that if Countrywide didn't pass the deed of trust, with the mortgage contract that they could not foreclose, and that if I paid the loan off that they could not give me clear title once paid. so he said I should not make anymore payments until they filed. that was over seven years ago.

I am a resident of Fla. and have a NYS sales Tax lien on me

I am a resident of Fla. and have a NYS sales Tax lien on me from a business I ran years ago in NY. I recently got married and want to add my wife to my property deed in NYS. I understand the lien is against me and not the property. Can I legally add her name to my deed as a wedding gift? There is no bank or mortgage on the property a no liens on the property that I am aware of at this time! Can something like a Quick claim deed be used and how legal would that be, and could the property eventually be transferred to someone else should either one of us die

I recently made steps to purchase my late mom's home which

I recently made steps to purchase my late mom's home which is in probate. the mortgage company finally told me after I had summited my application, that I need to go to court to have her name removed from the title. I need to change it to name the list of heirs. I do have one sibling that never agrees with anything.( 1 of 8 people ) What do I tell the court in order to secure a place on the docket. Once we're there how shall I ask the judge to address the problem sibling. I was conservator for the estate prior to mom passing. I now share estate rep. along with the problem sister who is not a law bidding person with a history. What to do ?

My brother and I are planning to buy a home together. It

My brother and I are planning to buy a home together. It would be a joint residence. We are looking at home in the range of 800K. I have around 150K for a downpayment. He doesn't have anything to put toward the downpayment. However, he would be able to pay roughly half of the mortgage payment and would like to have some equity as opposed to just paying rent. Do you have any suggestions on how we might structure the deal so that it takes into account the sizeable down payment I am making while also giving him credit for half the mortgage payment each month. This is so that in the end if one of us wants out we have an understanding ahead of time.
