Three of us lived in a house together. only one of us are on

three of us lived in a house together. only one of us are on the mortgage. the house was split three ways at closing. one person voluntarily moved out in may 2016, the move was documented, and he said he would not be returning for any property. as of yesterday, he has been barred verbally from the property for escalating a situation in which he tried to take property out of the house. he is claiming that the paperwork, signed only by the mortgage holder, entitles him to occupancy of the house. as far as we can see, the house was split three ways in case of a sale, which would entitle this person to part of the sale. he has also signed a property release document, but it has not been notarized, and he refuses to sign anything or make time to get it notarized.does he have legal rights to occupy the house? how do we go about removing him from any document giving him any rights whatsoever to the house?

We live in California. Our next-door neighbors have

We live in California. Our next-door neighbors have non-permitted dwellings in their house and non permitted steps. There are active complaints from us with our County of Ventura regarding this. We hear that they are going to sell this house. My question is can they complete a sale with these active violations without "curing" them, or can they sell and disclose these violations- thus passing on these violations to the new buyers.

Last year I purchased a condo in Edina, MN It was built in

Last year I purchased a condo in Edina, MNIt was built in 1974 and is a mature, well-maintained building with 123 units.Unit sizes are 1 br – 956 sq. ft; 2 br – 1367 sq. ft.; 3 br – 1912 sq. ft; penthouse – 2972 sq. ft.SITUATION/PROBLEMMy unit was advertised for sale as 1900 sq. ft. with 1 garage stall.No where and by noone were we made aware that a unit our size was assigned 2 parking spaces in the original construction configuration and the association covenants.On the day of closing, we had to wait for the delivery of a “document” before we could proceed. It was all very hush-hush, no explanation except that the document had to be processed at the time of our purchase. Apparently it was a quit-claim on one of our parking spaces which then was deeded to the revocable trust of the seller, who also owns two smaller units (2 br) in the building. This now reassigned one of our parking spaces to one of his other units.We move in with 2 cars and went to the office to see if we could rent another parking space.Office person said, “Where is your other parking space? There have always been two assigned to your unit. Two spaces are allocated to the penthouses and to the 3 br units.”The previous owner has a collection of vintage cars and rents other spaces in the garage.SITUATION/PROBLEMBy removing one garage stall from my 3 br unit and reassigning to a 2 br unit the first problem is that the resale value of my property is reduced.Secondly, my association fee covers one 1912 sq ft condo living area and two garage stalls.The previous owner's association fee is understated as he is paying for one 2 br condo unit living area and one garage stall, NOT the extra stall.Taxes are billed on condo size and each garage stall, so that is not at issue here. He did register with the County and paid the taxes.Essentially, I am over-paying my association fee; he is under-paying.

I am the owner of a Time Share in Fla. At the time of

I am the owner of a Time Share in Fla. At the time of purchase, an ex-friend wanted to be co-owner so I added the name. Since that time, we have gone our separate ways and I wish to have her name removed. I thought it would be a simple matter since she wants no parts of it, is not responsible for the payments....nor has she ever paid anything. I am the only one making payments. I would like to keep the property but only if her name is removed. I contacted the time share to proceed with proper process and was told that her name has to remain on the contract until it's been paid off in full. I find this to be very odd as she's not paying anything but still has rights to use the property whenever she wants without my knowledge??? I'm confused, since she has agreed to take her name off and no longer wants to be connected. She has also agreed to signing a Quick Claim. I'm not sure what I should do at this point. What are my options? Please advise.

I recently closed on a real estate transaction where I was the seller of a house my dad transferred to me and my sister was the buyer. After closing I received a call from the escrow attorney that the property had a judgement lien. If I would have known, I would not have closed. What should we do or what should the buyer do?
