I just received notice of legal action being taken against
I just received notice of legal action being taken against me (and my three brothers) for unpaid municipal taxes on a house we inherited when my father passed away. On the surface this sounds easy to resolve, that is, pay the taxes. Unfortunately, two of my brothers are financially stressed (i.e., one unemployed and the other in the middle of personal bankruptcy). Since my financial interest in the property is only 1/4, I have no desired to be responsible for any more that 1/4 of this lien debt. Given the complexities due to multiple owners and their financial stability (or lack thereof), I am seeking guidance as to how I should proceed on this matter.
I bought a house with my husband in CA and his parents
I bought a house with my husband in CA and his parents helped us financially. They took loan and only their name are on loan. We all are on house title. His parents paid half of downpayment. We had verbal agreement that we will keep paying back to parents for downpayment and we pays mortgage every months.I and husband are getting divorce and there is TRO that also orders him to pay mortgage until hearing date.He has not paid any, so has his parents and their credit got damaged.They don't want to sell the house, offering buyout but they also going to sue me if I don't agree with buyout.My question is that is there any chance for parents to win for their damage? Legally do I have to pay mortgage and property tax even they are also on the title? On deed, its written parents are entitle only for 1% of interest.I think all their damage was caused by their son who did not follow court order.

I am divorced years now, and in the divorce I stated
I am divorced for 5 years now, and in the divorce I stated that I did not want rights to the property we owned together. I did not want to see my ex not have a place to live. In the past month I have discovered that my name is ***** ***** the mortgage and he rents the property. I am having a difficult time moving forward as long as my name is ***** ***** this mortgage. I cant even get a car loan. I need to know where I stand as far as forcing sale or a buy out on the property and getting my name off of the mortgage. I have asked him several times to take care of this and he says he cant do it.
