I listed a property for my seller. The other seller had his

I listed a property for my seller. The other seller had his own listing agent.My and my seller went to a real estate attorney after I took the listing.The attorney advised my seller he can put the home on the market as long as we stipulate that the home is owned 50/50 and we do not have full cooperation of the other seller. So we put it on the market received four very good offers. the other seller accepted an offer and we just closed escrow.Now the other seller filed a complaint that I could not put the home on the market. Will I get fined if I do not have the other sellers signature on my listing agreement. The other sellers attorney told me the home was going into default and it has foreclosure pending. So I put that on MLS and now the other seller is telling me that information was wrong also, that is part of the complaint..Does the other seller have a good case against me even thought my sellers attorney told us to put it on the market?

I own a park model mobile home in a campround at the shore

I own a park model mobile home in a campround at the shore where I pay rent for the land. I now want to sell and was told I can either use one company which the campground approves to list my place or sell it for sale by owner. I decided to use the company they told me because I have three children and it is difficult to come down for showings. When I went to list it, the manager told me he would not take my listing at the price I was asking. I wanted to list for $70,000. He said he would only take the listing if I sold for $35000. My place is worth much more than this and I didn't think the price for something I own could be dictated by a listing agent. Now I'm in a pickle because my only other option is for sale by owne . Is all of this legal?

My brother took over a business 1 and half years ago. The

My brother took over a business 1 and half years ago. The previous owner said everything in the restaurant belongs to him and will sell them all to my brother. The landlord had signed lease assignment agreement with my brother and previous owner.Now the lease was expired last month. And the landlord didn't send the notice to inform my brother to renew contract or not. But this month August, we pay the rent late for 6 days, the landlord locked up our door and said all equiment inside belongs to her not the previous owner so he did not have the right to sell.But the landlord does not list the equipment on the original contract. The landlord said my brother bought the business not the property.So what can we do now?

My ex is on a deed to my property in New Jersey, USA. I had

My ex is on a deed to my property in New Jersey, USA. I had a quit claim deed transfer drawn up, to transfer the deed in solely my name. She has little to no equity in the house and owes 2/3 of the mortgage, I owe 1/3. The mortgage is solely in my name with a divorce decree that states she is liable for her amount owed. She has a business that has a tax lien, and a pending case for federal taxes owed on another business. She states the quit claim document can't be processed because it would be fraud, to transfer the property, while a lien is on her business. There is no lien on the house/property. Can she transfer the deed to me, without breaking the law or committing fraud?

My brother's divorce papers awarded two properties that he

My brother's divorce papers awarded two properties that he and ex-wife owned to the ex-wife December 3, 2014. The divorce papers stipulate that "The husband is ordered to sign any deeds or documents needed to transfer any property listed below to the Wife. Wife is responsible for preparing the documents."The ex-wife had my brother sign over 2 properties; one which she put in her will that he would get back should something happen to her. I have since discovered that she has changed the will to leave the property to her granddaughter. Needless to say, she is not to be trusted and she has only her self-interest in mind.Now after 1-1/2 years, the ex-wife sent a "SPECIAL WARRANTY DEED" for my brother to sign. ( I have his POA because he cannot take care of his financial and other responsibilities.)The following wording on the Special Warranty Deed concerns me. "Grantor binds Grantor and Grantor's heirs and successors to warrant and forever defend all and singular the property to Grantee and Grantee's heirs, successors and assigns against every person whomsoever lawfully claiming or to claim the same or any part thereof when the claim is by, through, or under Grantor but not otherwise, except as to the reservations from conveyance and exceptions to conveyance and warranty".First, I think a Quit Claim Deed may be all that's needed.Second, I don't think my brother should be warranting or forever defending the property or commit his heirs to the same.Please advise.
