WHO PAYS FOR THE PARTITION FEES?

Lawyer's Assistant: Has any paperwork been drafted or filed?

Not yet to my knowledge but we did receive an attorneys letter stating we must respond with our one and only non negotiable offer for said property within 15 days or they will proceed to tile the requisite Partition Action.

Lawyer's Assistant: Where is the property located?

PA

Lawyer's Assistant: Anything else you want the lawyer to know before I connect you?

That we are willing to negotiate with the other parties involved but are still waiting for paperwork from our professional appraiser so that we have necessary information to make an offer on buying said property,

The filing of the action, would be paid by the moving party. As such, if another owner is trying to get the Judge to partition the property, they would have to incur the legal costs. Now, there is nothing unreasonable about asking for more time to perform your due diligence before making an offer and it would be foolish for them to simply refuse to allow this, if they want to settle this and are acting in good faith. If you need more time, tell them how much more and you can share you will have a proposed offer by _____ date.

Do I need to do this legally through our lawyer or can I just respond in letter form myself?
Lawyer: LegalKnowledge, Attorney replied 11 months ago

It is at your discretion. If you know the amount which you want to be bought out, you can certainly respond and do it on your own. If you can agree on a buy out price, their attorney would likely draft the agreement. It could be at that time, that you retain an attorney to review the language, just to make sure you are protected.

I meant I was thinking of drafting up my own letter, (verses an attorneys) asking for a time to gather our information and then set up a meeting with lawyers to negotiate a buy out price.
Lawyer: LegalKnowledge, Attorney replied 11 months ago

Yes, that is fine. There is nothing wrong with handling this on your own, if you are comfortable and saving the legal fees.

I do have an additional question. Can you tell me the difference between an an administrator or executor or an estate verses a power of attorney. Thank you in advance
Lawyer: LegalKnowledge, Attorney replied 11 months ago

Great to hear back from you.

I thank you for understanding and just ask that you rate my help at the top, so the site provides me with he credit for the help I provided above, earlier today.
