My brother & s wife was living with daughter & husband in

My brother & his wife was living with daughter & husband in 1996 and were told to move; having no where to go my wife & I owned 10 acres and we gave them a nontransferable life estate for 1 1/4 acres where they could live for the rest of their lives; with a clause saying if they left and moved it would return to us or our kids... They moved, and signed a quick claim deed to anther daughter; she stayed awhile and signed a quick claim deed to me and my wife returning property back to us!!! Brothers moble home was still here, brother was told to leave daughters home again, so they came back and and moved into moble home; we never at any time charged them rent for the property; only $60 per mo. For water as we are on a well with full RO water; my. 2 daughters, and nephew + 3 neighbors each pay the same for up keep; well my bro. Came raising cane saying he bought the property and wanted the title; which was in both my name and my wife's name so to keep this from going crazier I signed a quick claim deed to them hoping it would do!!! My wife never signed the quick claim deed; my brother died; his wife went to the judge and had the property put in her name; then a couple months later she signed a quick claim deed to her daughter giving her the land; her mom died last year and daughter is trying to sell the land... Does my wife & I own the property or does the daughter??? Thanks... Jerry

I have been taking care of my neighbor's vacant lot adjacent

I have been taking care of my neighbor's vacant lot adjacent to my property (cutting lawn, trimming trees spring and fall clean-up etc...). Since my land has no parking, we have been using this area for guest parking without dispute since 1987. They have recently put up boundary's so that we cannot park on their property because they are upset due to several Summer parties this year where noise was load and many cars were packed into both of our properties. They stated that they were "Taking Back" their property. Do I have any recourse - I live in Massachusetts...?

We live in Carter county, TN. We bought our 12 acres in 2013. Our deed specifies several neighbors with an easement to use our road to access their properties. Shortly after we bought the property a man building a cabin on a parcel behind our property introduced himself. His property is not listed in our deed as having an easement. We have allowed him, including construction traffic to use our road. He has contributed some funding, though only half of his verbal promise toward repair of the road. Does he gain any rights to continued access because we have allowed him use?

I have a neighbor who built a tree house on our property.

I have a neighbor who built a tree house on our property. this was done 4 or 5 years ago and since it is hardly visible through the trees we did not realize it was encroaching until I looked at a plat map online and saw that it was just over the property line. When I e-mailed my neighbor, who is only here part time, she said she and her husband had thought it was probably on another neighbor's property, not mine. She apparently never notified the other neighbor when they built this thing. They have it connected to their house via a walkway, and there house, which was probably built in the 70's is not in compliance with current setback laws. i only care about the encroachment, which seems to have been done willfully. With Adverse possession laws in Colorado, I worry about them seizing the property.

I live in Santa Clara, CA and I won an unlawful detainer

I live in Santa Clara, CA and I won an unlawful detainer lawsuit yesterday. My attorney's office informed me that the Writ of Possession was obtained from the court and filed with the sheriff's office. They said the Date of Restoration was pending. Today, my neighbors informed me the tenant and two helpers were loading her possessions into a moving van. My question is this: Is it legal for me to re-enter my house before the Date of Restoration?

I'm a firefighter. I work a minimum of 2 days at a time and up to 3 weeks in the summer fighting fires throughout the state. It's garbage day falls while I'm at work, my trash cans are left on the curb until I return home. They say that's a violation of the rules. They're telling me to get a keypad for my garage so I neighbor can put them away for me, or face a fine if they are left out. Can they force me to buy a keypad, or find me if I'm unwilling to purchase the keypad out-of-pocket?
