Any realator Commisions Due?

A:  Originally posted by hunter.bob What is the name of your state? California We have been looking for a vaction property with several realtors for three years now. There are no written Buyer''s Broker Agreements with any of the realtors. (When they here of a prospective property they contact us and show us the property.)

Q: 

Do you need a real estate license For Partnership Sales

A:  You would need to check with the specific state licensing agency to determine if you need a real estate license to sell the partnership interests. I suspect in most states the answer will be no. However, the sale of a partership interest is the sale of a security, and you may thus need a securities license and, in particular, will need to ensure that you comply with federal and state securities laws. I highly encourage you to see a lawyer that practices the in the area of securities law to ensure that you don't run into problems. The liability can be absolutely huge if you violate the...

Q: 

Who is better to create sales contract in a private party transaction?

A:  Why not spend a few dollars to have a real estate attorney write a proper contract that would be suitable for your area? Always better to spend a few dollars to have the transaction go smoothly and limit your liability and avoid problems. Hello Furrycoral and thanks for your post. In the State of California, escrow companies and title companies are not licensed to do the work you are requesting, so they will not be able to assist you. Further, the only work that the mortgage company will do will be limited to the tasks necessary to complete a loan, and without a proper, executed contract, the lender will not even begin to open the file to process the home loan. Since this is a...

Q: 

Courts of law or a JOKE?

A:  "SRS" <Stanley_Siler...comcast.net> wrote in message news:EIydnaqXUdOpYMLfRVn-1A...comcast.com... Is courts a forum that conforms to the law, that have Judges that help attorneys? Or are Judges supposed to remain impartial? Do courts make there own law as a trial proceeds to find facts or the truth? Do courts have a Crystal Ball to make a futuristic "General Judgment of Dismisall", this would be similar to an "Eight Ball".

Q: 

Leaving work for the day

A:  "Is there a law, that says an employee can count a full day of work as long as that person shows up at all, even if it's just to tell everyone they are going home and not count it as a company sick day?" No.  Employment law leaves sick days, PTO, vacation however the employer defines it up to the employer.  If the manager wants to have a policy like that and the owners don't mind then it's legal.  Now if they want to enforce the use of PTO, sick days they can.  Even if they are an exempt employee they can deduct from their PTO or sick days in the increments they were absent.  i.e. if they show up and take a half day off sick they can deduct a...

Q: 

Question about Part Time Employment laws

A:  "Does a Part Time employee get paid if they report to work for their shift of 3 hours and the employer says sorry no working today due to weather conditions IE power outage?" Not in New York. "Is there not some type of law that states they must pay a minimum of hours wages?" Again, not in NY and I believe the one or two States that do have a "minimum hours pay" requirement exempt employers for paying for things beyond the control of the employer, such as power outages. "I was told that Full Time Employee's are paid by law for a minimum of 4 hours so my question is: are there any laws protecting the part time employee?" The

Q: 

Rip off Rent to own company. How to sue, how much would it cost- who to use?

A:  Lori- we contacted Wavy before we thought about pursuing legal action. They never responded. I may have to write them again now that I know more about the situation. Scott- thanks for the links. Unfortunately he''s not a real estate agent though, just a lawyer who owns a company most likely ripping multiple people off. Is contacting the BBB a good option? I know their website says they "resolve complaints within 30 days" but i''m not sure if this is way out of their reach. It''s definitely a company that needs at least an infraction, but I don''t know what other than an infraction if there''s anything they could specifically do to help us I would...

Q: 

In the news

A:  You were in public and part of a news story. The news station didn't need your permission as it was not being filmed for profit. You don't have a basis to sue. Why would you care if people know you bought lottery tickets? It's not a crime. What did you plan to do if you'd have won? You have no basis for suing the news station. You were in a public place and the TV station was filming for a news story, not to sell in an advertisement other commercial venture. When you are out in public, you may be videotaped by any number of cameras, and most don''t need your permission to do so. Furthermore, you suffered no legal damages. From your post, you''ve suffered no financial loss, simply embarrassment. You cannot get damages simply for embarrassment....

Q: 

How to separate two properties on a deed

A:  You're referring to them as separate lots, ergo it seems they are already legally separate properties. You'd want to confirm that with the local government records folks. "I want to separate these two properties on this deed so that I can sell it." If they are already separate lots, you don't need to "separate [them] ... on [the] deed". You just need to get your lender to release its security interest in that other lot. "Can I separate the two without going through my current mortgage company?" Not if that lot is partial security for your current loan. You'd have to ask lender to release their mortgage-deed of trust as to that lot to effect a good transfer to the buyers. I don't see an issue with that if you only...
