I am taking my ex GF/Real Estate partner to small claims
Hello,I am taking my ex GF/Real Estate partner to small claims court in January 25, 2017. I invested in a CA property we purchased for cash. We paid $145,000 my ex had me kicked out and then sold the property for $325,000. The agreement we had is that she would pay me back for my part of the money I put into escrow with her and invested once the property was sold. I was not put on title because I was going through a divorce at the time. But I have a perfect paper trial all the way back to escrow from my bank account and copies of the checks from my account going to the escrow company.Although I put in much more than I can get in small claims court, its better than a long drawn out legal fight where the costs could exceed the money I put into the investment.Is there any case law that I could use to support my claim? I have witnesses who also saw all the work I did on the property plus receipts too. What could really help my case?

M a Realtor, and Real Estate Investor. I assigned a contract
m a Realtor, and Real Estate Investor. I assigned a contract to an End User. I was busy, so I didn't get a copy of the purchase agreement over to the end buyer. They signed the assignment anyway, and didn't request a copy from me. They've done business with me before, so they know what my contract looks like. The title company didn't send out the HUD until the day of closing. The buyers did not request any documents and did not contact title. Failed to close. They're threatening me. Can I get in trouble for this?

Thought I had an oral agreement with a NOCO representative
Thought I had an oral agreement with a NOCO representative regarding the sale of our property adjacent to their gas station and convenience store. Started when I told him I wanted to put the house up for sale and he said his company would buy it and that's what he did whenever he could with any property adjacent to their station. He asked me to get an appraisal sent to him which I did promptly. He then asked for another appraiser of his choice and they came to my property and gave him their appraisal too which was very close to mine. He then said he was going to check any restrictions with the city but said not to worry because he was sure they would approve it since he was not asking to install more pumps. It's been several months now and although he said it might take more than a couple of months, it seems much longer then necessary. I left him a message on his cell asking what the progress was on our agreement. He has not answered yet and I'm afraid he is not going to honor it. What can I do? Read that in property sale an oral agreement will not do. So what else can I do?

My father entered into a verbal agreement with my cousin 16
my father entered into a verbal agreement with my cousin 16 months ago (approx.). My father would put up the money to purchase a property and fix it up and my cousin would sell another property and give my father the equity from the proceeds (there's a mortgage involved on that property) and pay the difference off monthly afterwards. It was stated that the expected equity of the property to be sold was to be 100,000 and the total amount owed to my father from my cousin is disputed - somewhere between $131 - $145K. My father gave my cousin the money via bank deposits and their is no current paperwork on the transaction other than bank records. my cousin purchased the property via online auction and payed for it via funds transferred from my dads account. my cousin now refuses to sell the property (his mom is living in it) and is telling my dad the only paperwork he will sign is a promissory note for the lesser amount and agree to a "note" that amounts to only the interest on a normal 100,000 mortgage. My dad is 70 years old and the property my cousin bought with his money is in St Tammany Parish, Louisiana. and the property he agreed to sell is is Jefferson Parish La. What legal recourse does my father have and what is a reasonable amount to expect to spend to see a situation like this satisfied through a legal process if that is the path to take?
