Recent Redemption questions

J**** and I have numerous rental properties and

My name is********* and I have numerous rental properties and unfortunately this year I was not able to pay my taxes on all my properties. They were recently sold at a tax sale. It is my understanding that I have 1 year from the date of sale to redeem them. I also understand the interest goes up the longer it takes me to pay them. My question is, during this 12 month period who legally owns the property, me or the bidder who purchased it at the tax sale. They are in addition to the interest and fees they are charging "Rent" which they collect for the bidder. For example the homes that were sold at the tax sale are in my mobile home park which I have already paid property tax on. What government agency would I contact who could help me find out if this is acceptable practice in SC and legal.JA: What state is this in? And how old is the mobile home?Customer: Barnwell, SCJA: Has anything been filed or reported?Customer: All the homes range from 1980-1999 I have copies of tax bill I would like to send you a couple so you could see how it is stated. Can I scan or fax you the copies? Don't know what exactly you are referring to when you say has anything been filed or reported. I have received a notice stating that they have been sold at a tax sale and how much is owed to redeem them within the 12 months. Also, the court house has not answered any of our questions in over 2 weeks. We have emailed them specific questions and was given a verbal response when I visited and they said this is the first year they are charging "Rent". Obviously my concern is the titles are still in my name and I have 12 months to redeem them and they are saying I have to pay the monthly rent due to the bidder to the tax collector and this has to be paid at time of redemption, and then they forward the "Rent" money and interest due to the bidder. To me this seems as though the court house is acting as a property manager for the bidder which they are not licensed to do because they are not a property manager.JA: Anything else you want the lawyer to know before I connect you?Customer: I don't think so

We are looking into buying a former business that has a one

We are looking into buying a former business that has a one acre with building that is landlocked. This land was bought for back taxes. The other 29 acres surrounding is now for sale due to the owner passed away a couple months ago. This man never allowed the person that bought his one acre site access to the building and maintained all the equipment inside still belonged to him. If we can purchase the 29 we also want to have the one. We want to settle with the tax buyer. How strong of a leg does he have to the equipment inside and the land and building in this landlock?JA: What state are you in? It matters because laws vary by location.Customer: IllinoisJA: Has anything been filed or reported?Customer: As far as right a ways ? Not that we have been informed of.JA: Anything else you want the lawyer to know before I connect you?Customer: Not at this time

I've got some cream from Skin Nu and Eye Nu to try. When I got it I did'nt get any paper with a number on it to call them back to cancel these products. Was also not happy that I had to use a Magnifying glass to read how to use it . Not happy with this Company at all. If you could get a telephone number I would be so grateful.

This might be a sub-topic of "real estate law" as well. Here

Hello - this might be a sub-topic of "real estate law" as well. Here it is: I live in Minnesota. I'm in my 5th and final year of paying off a Chapter 13 bankruptcy. I had a mortgage through Wells Fargo on*****NE, Owatonna, MN 55060 that my now ex-wife and I resided in (she has to be moved out by month's end). The loan was in my name only, while the deed contained both our names. The home was foreclosed on (Sheriff sale completed). The bank is now selling / auctioning it off here: https://www.auction.com/details/355-ne-15th-street-owatonna-mn-55060-2130764-o_871/?utm_source=;digitalmarketing;&utm_medium=;listings;&utm_campaign=;zillow;redemption;co.steele_s.mn;aug16;&utm_term=;affiliates;fk59221;wro;o-871As you can see bidding ends tomorrow.Current pending situation (the issue): My parents are willing to pay cash for a home for me in Mankato, MN. The title / deed would be exclusively in my name. It would be my primary and only residence. My parents do not want their name on anything (they don't want to be a land-lord, or own a 2nd home, etc). I will be paying my parents monthly payments rather than a bank.My concern contains 2 points: 1) The foreclosed home & Wells Fargo, and 2) the CH 13 bankruptcy - Is there anything to be concerned about.....or any possibility that points 1 & 2 could put the new home in Mankato in jeopardy? Is there any way that anyone from points 1 & 2 could render any claims or liens against the Mankato home?Lastly - If I do get the Mankato home and I die or become incapacitated, who could the property go to? I have 2 kids (age 8 and 10) and 2 ex-wives (child w/ each). What type of document would be required to ensure that the property would legally go to my parents? Thank you.

I received correspondence from a collection agency regarding

Hello,I received correspondence from a collection agency regarding a $41,287.69 outstanding balance owed to a mortgage company. We settled for an $11,000 payment. The debt collector sent me the below letter regarding our agreement. I need a professional opinion."We are currently willing to accept a single payment of $11,000.00 as settlement on the above balance owed of $41,287.69,with no future liability/deficiency balance. This offer is good until end of business 08/31/2016, and thereafter thesettlement amount is subject to change. Your acceptance of and performance under this offer assumes that the underlyingdebt remains unsecured. To the extent that the lien previously attached to this property is revived under any redemptionpayment or by other operation of law all sums paid will be credited to the unpaid principal balance, but Veripro will beunder no obligation to release your lien."Thanks,Rogers

I am being pushed out of an LLC that I am a 30% partner in

Hello, I am being pushed out of an LLC that I am a 30% partner in (3 partners total including me). There was a dispute over a substantial amount of money in the business account being transferred into the majority partners personal account as well as another account for a business he owns 100% of with no discussion amoung partners. When I questioned him about it we had an arguement which led to me being given a securities redemption agreement in which the price for my shares is ridiculously low. I mutually want to resign from the company however have been threatened that if I don't take the low ball offer I will be voted out of the company by a 2/3's vote. I have not taken a draw from profits in a couple months and The fair value of my shares is far more than what is being offered. Here are my questions:Is it legal for the partner that owns 60% to move company profits into his personal accts?The scope of work is not defined in our operating agreement and I am not in breach of what the agreement does state as "cause" for removal. Are there any other legal grounds in which I can be voted out of the company without compensation or what is owed?FYI this business is based in GAAny advice that can be offered would be greatly appreciated!
