I am looking for a retail property for an office. There is

I am looking for a retail property for an office. There is one store that I found that is very reasonable. However it seemed that the previous occupant a barber left rather inadvertently leaving his expensive brand new chairs behind. The store is on a great location. Lots of vehicle traffic and my sign would get tons of exposure. However the rest of the shopping center is in decline. A store in the next center is about 150sq ft bigger and over twice the price $3000 mo compared to $1385 per month. Although the property is in a great spot these question don't add up. Why all the vacancies? Why all the quick departure of the previous tenant? Why the man I speak to on the phone number on the sign, turns out to be an agent and not the complex owner? I don't want make a huge mistake. The other property Im looking at across town in $1100 but the owner will not allow me to put a sign up. What gives? Need advice in this shark filled world. Im in the Hamptons in NY

I bought a one bedroom condo in Marietta, Ga about 18 years

I bought a one bedroom condo in Marietta, Ga about 18 years ago. I put the condo and mortgage in my daughter's name. I have paid everything. I now want to sell. But if my sale is in my daughter's name I'd have to pay about $13000 in her taxes. Can I legally avoid these taxes by getting a quitclaim deed? And if I can how would that affect the existing mortgage? Could I simply pay the existing mortgage off from the sale proceeds? Thank you.

Here is my issue: 4 years ago I had to refinance my mobile

Hi. Here is my issue: 4 years ago I had to refinance my mobile home because of a tax lien from a previously owned business. I am in college, only working part time, and my boyfriend (at the time) took out a loan in his own name because I wouldn't have qualified. I still make the payments and I am current. The title is in both of our names, but he is the only one on the loan. Well, he has decided to go bankrupt, and his attorney has advised him not to sign a reaffirmation of the loan. What will happen then? Will the bank just immediately foreclose when they receive his bankruptcy filing, or can I just continue to make the payments? My ex's attorney told me that the bank won't do anything if the payments continue to be made and are current. I find that hard to believe. In addition, I still had about $17,000 in equity when it was refinanced. Will I just lose it all, or do I have options? Thank you.JA: Since laws vary from place to place, what state is this in? And has any paperwork been filed?Customer: This is in Minnesota, and no, papers have not been filed yet.JA: Has anything been filed or reported?Customer: Not yet. He has the packet from his lawyer, but hasn't sent anything in yet.JA: Anything else you want the lawyer to know before I connect you?Customer: I think that's it. I just don't want to lose my place, and I know I still won't qualify for a loan on my own.

I've been thinking about this private sale offer I'm about

I've been thinking about this private sale offer I'm about to make on a property in Montgomery County, PA...but the deal seems too good to be true if their is no mortgage payoff by me to the bank. Before I place my offer as I'm prepared to buy for past owed taxes and city/county liens...who can I contact to make sure the bank isn't asking for any money from me? ...I don't feel that the county person knows this answer before I place offer. Can I ask title company to find this out? Is there fee I can pay you to find this out?

Lauren, I am reaching out to you regarding the same matter,

Hi Lauren,I am reaching out to you regarding the same matter, that is the purchase of a property (residence) when the seller is in bank ruptcy. I had my attorney call the Trustee of the Court and they referred him back to her attorney who apparently is handling things.The seller goes to court tomorrow with her attorney for a "confirmation hearing". The attorney will dismiss the bankruptcy. The seller will have the paperwork to show she has a buyer for her property (me). If the bankruptcy is dismissed, is the seller in a vulnerable position if she up-to-date on the trustee and mortgage payments? They cannot foreclose on her, correct? The escrow has been extended until the end of October. I assume once we have the judge's approval and her attorney dismisses the bankruptcy, I am in the clear to purchase the home once the liens are paid off and title is clear, correct? Can you provide an estimate of how long you think it takes for title to clear? She has two mortgages, one tax lien, one car lien and one other small amount. Thanks, Rose
