I've got a couple of specific questions on the document i

Richard,I've got a couple of specific questions on the document i shard with you earlier(attached here). In my Buyer's further response section, i am agreeing to decide the closing date later but asking the Seller to have till 15th Nov, 2016 to resolve the liens. I am trying to understand from a legal perspective how much of a leverage would i hold if the seller doesn't comply with 15th Nov deadline. Would i still be able to penalize them because of poor performance in their pursuing of the IRS case, staying within the contract and not resorting to litigation?

Again. Following up from our conversation yesterday, by law,

Hi Richard again. Following up from our conversation yesterday, by law, is the seller obligated to disclose all liens at the time of purchase contract signing? And in my case they didn't, so i can ask for compensation related to that as well, right? If so, can you tell me how to word asking for that compensation? Thnx

I have been contacted by the apartment manager recently and

I have been contacted by the apartment manager recently and was told that my check was returned due to my checking account being a closed account; as a result, I was instructed to pay late fees and a returned check fee. I contacted my bank for further investigation because I knew my checking account was not closed. After investigation by the bank's accounting department, it was discovered that the apartment's bank entered the wrong bank account number. My bank wrote a letter on company letterhead and provided me a copy. I contacted the managing company and was told that I will still have to pay the fees and my payment would still be considered late even though this incident was beyond my control. What are my rights?

I own a deeded timeshare here in Reno NV. I recently

I own a deeded timeshare here in Reno NV. I recently received a letter from them stating that due to foreclosures and owners just giving back their timeshares the property(Plaza Resort Club) would be bankrupt and out of business at years end. They want me to either sign the deed over or I do have the option to transfer to another property for a fee ($375) plus the maintenance fee will be quite a bit higher( not interested in that). I don't mind signing the deed over but something sounds fishy to me. The Resort is large and full of millions of $ in antiques and they are going to sell it. They claim that they were loaned 1 million for operating expenses and would cost $600,000.00 to convert the deeds back to them. These two issues mean that (they claim) there will be nothing left after the sale of the property to distribute to owners in good standing. It is hard for me to believe they would not reap millions from the sale of this property given location and the condition of the property. Should I continue to keep an eye on this issue or just get rid of the timeshare. I have wanted to dispose of this timeshare anyway. I just don't want them to sell this property turn it into a hotel and make a bunch of money.

Who owns the house? My son thought he purchased a house on

Who owns the house? My son thought he purchased a house on Friday 8/19/16 in Bakersfield, Ca. He was told by the escrow co. that escrow had closed, the deed had been recorded and that he could pick up the keys and move in. Over the weekend, the family cleaned the yard and the inside of the residence. Today, Tues 8/23/16 they received a knock on the door. A man showed up and said "what are you doing in my house?". He further stated that yesterday, Mon 8/22/16 he attended a foreclosure sale "on the steps of the county courthouse" and purchased the property in question for cash. He went on to say that the deed had been recorded and that he will take legal action (eviction??) if my son did not vacate the house. He bought the property that was in foreclosure. My son knew the seller was behind in his payments but nothing was ever mentioned of an imminent foreclosure sale. Needless to say my son is upset and confused. Have you ever heard of the county forgetting to take a foreclosure sale off the market? My son loves the house and just wants to live their in peace and quiet. I am a retired attorney that needs some help on the subject. Please help.
