I am a realtor trying to help my parents sell a property in

Hi, I am a realtor trying to help my parents sell a property in Washington State they brought in 1985. They had a real estate contract written up by the sellers attorney, They took out a personal bank loan to pay for the property but have never received a deed/fulfillment deed. They previous seller is now deceased (2003). And apparently the law firm no longer in exists. The loan was paid in full, buyers don't have payment records back that far they only retain 7 years. What could you suggest to clear title and have the now deceased sellers name removed from title, we find no heirs alive. The owner's since 1985 are currently trying to sell this property. Thank you.JA: Because real estate law varies from place to place, can you tell me what state this is in?Customer: WashingtonJA: Has any paperwork been filed?Customer: no, not as of yet.

I purchased a property behind another one 28 yrs ago, my

I purchased a property behind another one 28 yrs ago, my property has a 20 X 100 ft long easement from the St to my property. With the original owner no problem, however, with the present owner the 20 ft was transformed into a 16 ft. He places his trash cans and built a patio that is 4 ft into the easement. With the original owner I paid for half of the fence, the new owner denies even thou I have the receipt and it is signed by the original owner stating my contribution. I can not even hang signs on the fence to stop people from entering my long drive way. The sign reads "PRIVATE ROAD RESIDENTS ONLY". The people from the other side of the drive way park cars close to their property, but, they use my driveway to get in and out and refused to respect my rights. They park 1,2, and even 3 cars and half of their cars are on my driveway easement.The zip for the property is 91977

In January we purchased a condominium at a foreclosure sale

In January we purchased a condominium at a foreclosure sale in California, and subsequently recorded the Trustees Deed upon Sale in our names. In doing our due diligence prior to the sale, we had found that the prior owner had substantial delinquent HOA dues, and that the Association had filed a lien back in July. The first mortgage was foreclosed when we were high bidders, and we subsequently recorded the Trustees Deed upon Sale. My understanding is that since California is not a "super lien" state, The HOA lien as well as the small second mortgage were cleared from title, and the only recourse for the HOA to recover the debt would be to go after the prior owner.JA: Since laws vary from place to place, what state is this in? And has any paperwork been filed?Customer: CaliforniaJA: Has any paperwork been filed?Customer: what kind of paperwork?JA: Anything else you want the lawyer to know before I connect you?Customer: we think the HOA is under the impression that we are responsible for almost five years of past dues.Our understanding is that we owe from the day we took title only
