Hello and welcome! My name is ***** ***** I am a licensed attorney who will try my very best to help with your situation or get you to someone who can. There may be a slight delay in my responses as I research statutes or ordinances and type out an answer or reply, but rest assured, I am working on your question.
I have read your comments, but I don't understand what it is that you are asking as they appear to be statements, not a question..
Did some of your question or comments get cut off?
This is what you posted...
""The landlord doesn't want to sell, but refused to fix anything.""
If the landlord won't agree to sell to you, then there is not a way that you can legally force them to do so..
So if there are big problems with the house, then your recourse here is to contact the local Code Enforcement or Housing Inspector and request that they conduct an inspection and cite the owner to force them to make repairs.
Ok, the way you find out is to go to the local Recorder of Deeds office in the county where the property is located...not the Secretary of State. Deed are local, not statewide, so whoever the local Recorder of Deeds office says is the legal owner is who it is..
The Secretary of State has nothing to do with this...
Ok, did you have another legal question that I can help with?
What is it that you are trying to accomplish here?
If you are trying to buy the house and the landlord won't sell, then as I said earlier, there is not a way to force them to sell to you..
