Maverick. A neighbor built about 8 inches over our 20 foot

Hi maverick. A neighbor built about 8 inches over our 20 foot wide property line in brooklyn. We wish to demand that they remove the breach or pay x amount of dollars.How long do we have to give them to cure and since their breach was with concrete and brick ( and they will probably wish to use such again) , can they be granted an extension for after the winter time to cure if we inform them in December? Concrete workers have many problems doing concrete work in freezing temps, snow and can be impossible. Or does the their liability remain, forcing them to cure and if necessary, make a porch out of metal or implement a basic ramp to their door until they are able to do their work.Furthermore, is there a statutory penalty for building over the property line? Or in other words, do we have a right for x in damages even if they cure?In addition, I believe you have to contest within 10 years in new York, the building upon your property.

We have a house for sales in Florida under Florida probate. One of the two owners is missing in action. He may have been arrested for some reason or may be on the streets in California again. Regardless, we can't find him to sign the sales agreement. He 's been homeless from time to time and is not responsible. How can we move forward with the sale without his signature?

My father passed away in 1999 in a nursing home in Arizona on state aid and left no will, that we have ever found. He inherited interest in an oil lease from property in Wilmington, California from my grandfather in the early 1960's. Recently, I was contacted by a "California Unclaimed Assets" finder company about Royalties from that property.I have been in contact with the Asset Management company and they require an Affidavit of Heirship (executed by two disinterested parties, properly completed, notarized and recored in the couty and state where the property is located).I need someone that can help with this.

I was next of kin to a relative who was a part owner of an

Hi. I was next of kin to a relative who was a part owner of an HDFC building in NYC. She was an original tenant at the time of the co-op formation. She passed away 11 years ago, and at the time I did not want to deal with the other tenants and made no claim. There was no will. Do I still potentially have a claim to pursue?

A friend left s vintage drum set at my house about ten years

A friend left his vintage drum set at my house about ten years ago. I don't expect to hear from him. I have attempted to text and call. He is out of state. He has a son that lives nearby who has made verbal claims of the property over the years and has continually neglected any effort to recover it or claim it even after informal requests. I don't wish to have responsibility for the property anymore and I also don't wish to have any further contact with the son. I do respect my old friends property, but I am tired of storing it and being responsible for it. I want to do the right thing. My fear is that if I get rid of the drums, or even put time into refurbishing them and using them, that it will somehow be held over my head in the future in a negative way. This would be entirely consistent behavior for the son. What can I do? Thanks.

I was the manager/secretary of an unincorporated business trust

I was the manager/secretary of an unincorporated business trust in 1992. It had a little money, my parents home and a small property. I sold the home, used the money and let the small piece of land go to the washoe county treasurer in Nevada. I was notified that the property was sold at auction for $10,000 and there is $8,343 left in excess funds. I applied for the funds but was denied because, even though I am the heir to my parents, the property was in the name of the trust and my father. I sent death certificates, birth certificates and several affidavits stating I was the manager of the trust. The problems is that in 2011 all of the trust papers were destroyed in a flood and I have no way of proving I was the manager. I sent sworn affidavits stating that I am, but was still denied. I want to appeal and I can't afford to get an attorney in Nevada. Is there any way I can appeal and hopefully convince them that I am the rightful heir?
