I have a property in NC. The house is paid in full. I purchased the house with my sister on some family land. I found out several years ago that the land was not divided when we built the house. There is another house on the land that belongs to another sister and her husband.Problem my sister wants me to take my name off of the house with her and let her have it so that she can do a reverse mortgage. I will not. The house is deeded so that the house ends up with the person that lives the longest.Question-Hypothetically, what happens if I out live my sister which means that I would have the house and would be sharing the land with the other sister and husband. This sister does not want me to have the house. She thinks that my sister's share should be divided even though legally it would be all mine. Will I be able to stay in the house regardless of the land being undivided. There are boundaries that separate the two houses. There are lines that have been developed by yard usage. That is there are definite lines where we cut grass for each house.Would I have to go to court t to get the land divided if they do not agree to divide the land?

Hi. I sold a property in Jesup, GA in December of 2013 using seller financing. The purchaser just finishing paying for the property a couple of months ago. But I also discovered around the same time that the appropriate filings of the deed were never executed.A representative for the seller "handled" our closing. As far as the Tax Commission is concerned, I am still the owner or record and thus, still responsible for property taxes owed.What should I do?Thank you.

If I use the money that is in my mothers bank account( for which I am the power of attorney) (she is 94 years old and is in a facility for Alzheimers patients), would there a gift tax involved. We are buying a house and need "seasoned funds" to be in our account for 60 days. After that time, we would put the money back into her account. We do not really need the money, we can come up with the down payment of $140,000 on our own, but the loan broker said the underwriters will want us to have 6 months reserve for mortgage payments, property tax and insurance on our other houses, (1 is in a lease-option), one is listed for sale and the one we live in now will be rented out, but she said that is what is required, which will be about $85,000 more($225,000) than we have to "season" before she can submit the package.
