I have a question regarding a home that the mortgage is in

I have a question regarding a home that the mortgage is in my name. I purchased the home about 9 years ago for my mother when she was in a bad financial situation. Her credit was very poor. I purchased the home as a foreclosure at a good price and the deed was in my name. The home was completely remodeled, and I quitclaim the deed to my mother a few years later. Now, we are in a situation because I have told her over and over that I want to sell the home because I don't want to be financially responsible for the home. She is paying the note, and a family member is living there because she moved into another home. I don't want this liability on my credit. My question is, can I take her to civil court and request we sell the home. I want none of the eqity in the home, if there is any. The home is paid down enough that selling will clear the current mortgage and possibly have equity remaining. Would a judge agree with making her sell it since the deed is in her name, and the mortgage is in my name since all I'm requesting is release from the financial obligation and she can have the equity if there is any.

My parents who are elderly was supposed to have sold some

My parents who are elderly was supposed to have sold some property in 2015 but they signed quitclaim deeds to an LLC group who have not given them anything from my understanding because my parents allowed the group who ask for permission to do repairs to the property BEFORE they bought it from my parents in March 2015. The LLC group asked me how much my parents wanted for the property and I wrote them saying $21,000. The spokesperson for the group wrote back many months later with a rejection letter stating that it was their understanding that the properties would be transferred free and clear in exchange for the repairs done and the back taxes due at that time. A voluntary gift of three to four thousand dollars was considered for a token of appreciation which was not given as of Jan. 2017. The spokesperson of the LLC group had a comparative market analysis done and I contacted the Real Estate agent who did the comparative market analysis. The Real Estate agent said the properties 2 homes that I wanted my parents to sell the properties for $21,000 were only worth $15,000 according to the analysis. My question is if this LLC group who allegedly made repairs and paid back taxes on the properties totaling $11,000. Should my parents have received anything for the transfer of the properties even if the LLC group did repairs to the properties or the difference in the market price and the repairs? The LLC group asked for permission to do repairs and pay back taxes and my parents said yes as they trusted that the LLC would still purchase or give them something for the properties. Incidentally, my parents signed quitclaim deeds in March 2015, and have not received anything in return as of Jan. 2017.

We live in, Nevada ( County) and own a condo. There was a

We live in Henderson, Nevada (Clark County) and own a condo. There was a detached garage for sale in the same complex by the owner who lives above us and we offered to purchase the detached garage. It was sold to us by a bill of sale, but nothing further. We know and trust the seller, but want to legally transfer the garage over to our deed.A few notes. The HOA CCR's do allow for the sale of the garage and we have received confirmation of this from the management. The garage doesn't have a separate parcel number from the unit.The question is how do we do two things 1) Amend the deed of the current owner to remove the garage from his deed 2) Add the garage to our deed. As well, what forms are needed to make this happen? Lastly, who do ask to assist us in this process to make sure it's done right. Title companies won't touch it because it doesn't have a parcel number, and the local recorder's office won't offer any advice.Thanks in advance

If you buy a property at a county tax sale, can the original

If you buy a property at a county tax sale, can the original owner who has the right of redemption sign a quit claim deed over to a third party and that third party sell the property and then pay you - as the tax sale buyer - from the proceeds of that sale before the redemption period expires, and is it legal to do a real estate closing with the third party buyer (bypassing the original owner with the right of redemption) at the closing? I am the tax sale buyer and have been told that a third party had the owner sign a quit claim deed on a promise of helping her improve her credit score ( no money to her and they have sold the property, had a closing without me, and sent me a check without the original owner ever redeeming it from me.) Is this legal?JA: Because real estate law varies from place to place, can you tell me what state this is in?Customer: Georgia, RomeJA: Has any paperwork been filed?Customer: The closing took place on the 29th, while I was out of state, and I was express mailed a personal check from the buyer for the amount of money I paid plus 30% mandated fee. I doubt any paper work has been filed at the court house yet, because at this point I have not yet signed the quit claim deed they are insisting I sign. I have refused to sign anything at this point, and the attorney's office has sent me an email stating that if I do not sign the email I could be in legal trouble. This doesn't sound right to me. I thought only the original owner had the right of redemption and to pay me before she could do anything with the property.JA: Anything else you want the lawyer to know before I connect you?Customer: No, thanks.

Riddle. My wife's mother is wanting to transfer her 2

John riddle. My wife's mother is wanting to transfer her 2 properties to us using quitclaim deeds here in Pickens SC. Both properties have Leins on them that are in her mother's name, but we are paying. I know that the mortgagor holds "ownership" to the property, but is she allowed by law to use the quitclaim deeds to transfer her rights and interest in the property to us with the mortgages in place. And if she does, as long as the mortgages are eventually paid in full, then we will be considered full and rightful owners. Am I correct? Assistant: Thanks. Can you give me any more details about your issue? Customer: What do you need to know
