We have a condo in Culver City, CA, the tenant who was

Good Morning. We have a condo in Culver City, CA, the tenant who was living there recently moved out. After we paid the full deposit back to her, our agent found 5 important letters sent from tax collector, which addressed to us. The tenant did not forward important letters to us,nor informed our property manager. Simply she neglected them. The letters were property tax bills and since we were never aware of them, now we have a significant penalty to pay.A USPS forwarding service was actually established but these letters were for some reason not forwarded to our new address.Any legal action we could take against the tenant for not informing us about these letters???

I owned my home free and clear until 2008 when I put my son

I owned my home free and clear until 2008 when I put my son on the deed so he could take out a $125,000 line of credit to finance a new business venture. Since then he has become a millionaire. He still has the line of credit with B of A, but he refuses to pay off the loan so that I can secure a line of credit in order to pay off my property taxes, which are 4 years delinquent, and put a new roof on the house. Can I sue him to regain full ownership of my home?

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 am a us citizen separated since 2007 from my filipino

I am a us citizen separated since 2007 from my filipino husband who has never lived or worked here.We were married in Reno Nevada. I bought a house here in mInnesota in 2010 and my husband's name is ***** ***** the deed. I am selling the house and the title company insists that they are going to withhold taxes from the 50% of my husband's share even though he is not on the deed. They are basing it because i had to declare on the homestead property taxes that i was married but separated and that my husband did not live in the house. I have always filed as head of household here in the states. Is this true and legal?
