I live in a row home in Reading, PA. It is on the side of a

I live in a row home in Reading, PA. It is on the side of a hill so that my home is higher than the home below me. There is a common wall which, in effect, is a retaining wall because it keeps my backyard from falling into their backyard. When the wall last rebuilt, my in-laws asked the neighbor if they would share the cost. They refused. My in-laws rebuilt the wall and paid for it completely. My wife and I inherited the house and the wall when my in-laws passed away. Since then, we have paid for all maintenance to the wall. No owner of the house next door has contributed a cent to building or maintaining that wall. There is a dispute between the current neighbor and ourselves over the ownership of the wall. We claim complete ownership as it is a retaining wall, it was built by our in-laws, and we have been maintaining it exclusively. Do we own the wall or not? Can we forbid the neighbor's kids from climbing all over the wall and possibly falling off injuring themselves and possibly opening us up to a lawsuit. We have had trouble with their kids in the past coming uninvited on our property and had to put up a No Trespassing sign to keep them off our property. Do we, in view of the foregoing, have exclusive ownership to the wall or is it still considered a common wall?JA: Because real estate law varies from place to place, can you tell me what state this is in?Customer: Reading, PernnsylvaniaJA: Have you talked to a lawyer yet?Customer: NoJA: Anything else you think the lawyer should know?Customer: The neighbor's kids have been harassing us for over two years and we have had to call the police numerous times.

I purchased a home almost 3 months ago, and unfortunately

Hello,I purchased a home almost 3 months ago, and unfortunately things took a turn for the worse when business slowed dramatically. With loans and credit cards going to fall into delinquency in a few months, im considering chapter 7 if i cannot turn things around.I Currently owe roughly 100k between credit cards and unsecured loans. For my mortgage i owe around 298k and my house is worth ~350k. i understand CA (the state where my home is) has a homestead exemption in chapter 7 that protects up to 75k in equity, but it appears there is a time frame in which you must own the house. Since i have only lived here for a few months, does that mean my equity in the house will be gone and ill be forced to sell if i do a chapter 7? Do i have any other options? Is chapter 13 worth considering?

I have a dilemma. My uncle died quickly after being

I have a dilemma. My uncle died quickly after being diagnosed with lung cancer. He had a collection of guns which could not be left for his children to sell on the streets, so he asked me to help sell the guns and give the money to his 3 kids. He was in the process (spoke with a living trust lawyer but died two days before signing it) of writing this in his living trust. I followed through with his wishes and sold the guns legally. I signed all the DOJ paperwork. Will I be the one responsible for any taxes? Will there be taxes? How much would I have to pay on $12,000? Is there anything else I should be concerned about?Thank YouEric

A friend gave my son a boat with the agreement that my son

A friend gave my son a boat with the agreement that my son would pay him $7500, $300/month until paid off. There was no transfer of title or registration and no paperwork. It was strictly a verbal agreement. My son secured boat insurance but failed to get comprehensive insurance. The first time he took the boat out, the depth finder failed, it ran aground and the boat was damaged. The previous owner is demanding that my son pay the $8000 damages. Who is actually liable for the damage to the boat.
