Real Estate Law
Have Real Estate Law Questions? Ask a Real Estate Lawyer.
Thanks for the chance to help. I am an attorney with over 12 years experience. Hopefully I can help you with your legal question.
I am sorry for this dilemma. But not sure I understand your specific question. What do you mean "is what she doing legal"? Are you asking if it is legal for her to request the items back?
She can say what she likes. It is not a violation of any law for her to claim she lent them to you.But at the end of the day, the issue will be "was this a gift, or did she lend them to you"
If it was a gift? Then they (the prints and artwork) belong to you.
If she loaned them to you? She can demand them back...and if you refuse she could go to court and if she can prove this was a loan, they court can order they be returned.
Please let me know if you have more questions. I am happy to help if I can. Otherwise, please rate the answer so I may get credit for my work.
