An Order for Restitution and Abstract of Judgment was filed

An Order for Restitution and Abstract of Judgment was filed on myself and property in Los Angeles County in April, 2008. This derives from a criminal case dating back to 2007 and prior. The victim/judgment creditor and I have agreed to a final payout amount and would like to move forward to settle financially and have the abstract of judgment and/or lien removed. On the abstract of judgment there is language that reads "the victim shall file a satisfaction of judgment with the court whenever an order to pay restitution is satisfied, pursuant to penal code section 1214(d).Probation was ended about 3-4 years ago, and this was turned into a civil matter as far as I understand. I'd like to know if we have to get approved or anything with the court / probation dept since a restitution matter.The judgment creditor believes that all we need is a settlement agreement, satisfaction of judgment and release of lien. However, with the abstract of judgment and order for restitution I'm not so sure.We have agreed to use an escrow company so I can deposit the funds while the creditor files their necessary paperwork. This is holding up a refi on our property. How long will it take once the satisfaction of judgment (or whatever is required) for the lien or abstract to be removed?

I own a condo in Century Village, Florida, I also own a

I own a condo in Century Village, Florida, I also own a private home in New Jersey. The condo in Florida was originally mom's and transferred to me via a Quit Claim Deed. It became a huge burden, as Medicaid forced me to pay for it for 4 yrs while my mom was on Medicaid. They told me if we foreclosed on it or did not sell it for what they felt it was worth they would drop my mom from Medicaid. The condo is in bad condition and needs costly repairs, it has not been updated since 1972 with electric, plumbing, and more.*** Problem Now: My mom passed away and Medicaid Recovery now put a Lien on the condo. If I stop paying the Taxes, Association fees, Maintenance fees, because my name is ***** ***** on the deed, can they lien my New Jersey home? I heard that the tax dept can only put a Lien on the Florida Condo, is this correct? Can the Association and Maintenance Firm go after me personally and Lien my New Jersey Home or personal bank account.

My husband has a sublease of commercial space where he

My husband has a sublease of commercial space where he believed as was told by the lesser that the air conditioning unit worked but he did not use it. As it turns out the AC unit is not in great repair. And is hot is unmanageable for him to conduct business. The lesser does not want to fix the unit and put in portable units which would be not professional looking fir my husband business. My husband does not want to continue the lease as its unacceptable. The solution the lesser has provided is not what he expected.There is a section on his lease that says under Care and Maintenance. Of Real Property that lessee acknowledges real property in good order and repair. And that at lessee's own expense maintain the real property in good and safe condition and surrender property in good condition normal wear and tear excepted.Does that mean he is responsible for replacing the unit? It is basically needing replacement as its on its last leg. My husband is pretty much done with the lessor as he stated that my husband is responsible for fixing it even though he knows it never worked properly. As mentioned, at this point my husband wants out of the lease.
