I recently bought a 1991 townhouse and the disclosure form

I recently bought a 1991 townhouse and the disclosure form said roof 2008 and the real estate listing had "newer roof" published. The home inspector estimated the roof to be older (12 -15 years), but when we questioned the age, the realtor called the seller who said yes, that is was put on in 2008. He seemed to accept this. Then, just two weeks after closing, several shingles came off of the roof.After I had them repaired, the roofing specialist said the roof was in very poor condition. I had another professional roofer come out and he said I would need a new roof within 1-2 years as the shingles looked inferior and it was not done in professional manner. I contacted my realtor about this issue and that I felt the roof was both misrepresented by the real estate agency and the seller. I contacted the township to find that no permit was issued for a new roof. My realtor contacted the seller who said her son had hired a roofer friend to do the job and he oversaw it. He provided a 2008 cancelled check that his mother wrote out to him, an email from him to his mother laying out the cost, and a signed statement from a neighbor that saw the new roof go on in 2008. My issue is not so much that it did or did not go on in 2008, but the condition of the roof. If I had known I would have to put on a new roof on a house that was represented as having a "newer roof" I would not have paid close to the asking price. What is my recourse in this matter? One last thing, my realtor and the seller have been friends for years. Does this play into this situation? Thank you for your advice!

Quick Question. red real estate agent, red a great

Quick Question. Hired real estate agent, hired a great photographer to take pictures. I don't remember who he was and I lost his business card. No way of finding him.We fired the real estate agent he wasn't doing his job. We offered the real estate agent money to for the pictures and he refused, we then offered him more money and he never responded.Can we use the pictures or is there a big penalty? I just want to use the "make me move" application on Zillow. I can get new pictures done but the ones we already have are great and we can avoid all hassle.Is this a huge issue? We were willing to pay.

To whom ever, I am selling a small motel here in New Mexico.

To whom ever,I am selling a small motel here in New Mexico. The closing date was set for the 25th.(Friday),however we have changed it to the 24th.(tomorrow). Myself as well as the Buyers knew that the closing could be anytime this week. Now that one of the parties so happens to be stuck in a snow storm in Denver,Co. and is unable to even leave the house in order to sign and fax her signature, I have to wait until Monday the 28th, to receive the funds due to me. I have already made promises to people that it will be paying them by Friday or if funds do not clear,possibly Monday. the buyers so far have gotten everything they wanted,now this. To me this is not fair. the wife who is stuck in Denver should have been here before the storm arrived. What can I do? I need the money now and I want to be finished with the motel.

Ill try to simplify without history behind the question. If a brother & sister gained ownership from a parent ie of a home via a quit claim deed. 9 years later, the sister signed a for sale of real estate contract AS IS. But the brother's signature was forged, & the brother was not in the US for months surrounding the sale activities . the brother did not see said contract , nor had the sisters Realtor communicate or give a copy of the contract to the brother. said Realtor did not leave a copy of the contract with the deaf disabled unsound person -sister. The Realtor faxed a copy of the sisters signature & forgery of the brothers signature immediately to GB Esq who the buyers attorney ( fax banner shows this) soon after, The buyers atty GB Esq via unclean hands, sued both brother & sister , naming both brother & sister as defendants on the one complaint filed from BG Esq ...the said petitioner / the buyers atty. . If the brother's attorney K Esq office, after 4months time passing , K Esq called the petitioner/buyers /opposition's attorney GB Esq ... asking for service of suit be delivered to K esq and K esq accepted service of the suit 4 months later .....ie only via the brothers atty. Ken Esq .& specifically to this question ... this atty Ken Esq did not represent the sister, and this Ken esq's office was the only place of the process service ... so then , was the sister served legally., within a reasonable time period?

Is this true or what parts are or are not: A quit claim deed

Is this true or what parts are or are not: A quit claim deed is discovered by B Eq via his title insurance co. pending the purchase of a home purchase by B esq's clients. B esq conspires wit the relator lying to me B esq client had a different realtorwhen Besq admitted 10 months into his lawsuit he was working & his client were represented by the sellers realtor When i realize i can't be an owner because B esq tlte company refused to give title insurance because of non- joinder of the grantors spouse (spouse did not sign said QCD) . so B esq brought suit, knowing this , I believed that i cant be party being sued, since B esq knew the QDC giving title to me was defective. I read the title must revert back to the grantor. B esq refused to hear of that. Soin other words did B esq bring a frivolous lawsuit v. me? even when my signature on the for sale of real estate had been forged by the relator, without my knowledge.

Nationwide Transfer has me trapped in a contract to transfer

Nationwide Transfer has me trapped in a contract to transfer my timeshare to keep my grandchildren from having to pay the the taxes and maintenance fees after I am gone. I am 89 years old. The timeshare I have at Vacation Village is clear of any debt or problems. Vacation Village says I must have a quit claim filed in Florida to rid myself of my timeshare. In March of 2015 I paid NWT over $6000 to release me of the in perpetuity portion of the original deed. When I called them to say I would like to withdraw from the contract as the sales person told me, I was told that I could not because it is not the policy of NWT to do so. I have not sent them the deed as requested and Vacation Village has sent me an invoice for taxes. Next year they will send me a bill for maintenance. How do I get out of this trap?
