Q: 

Need Advice-Renters or Buyers?

A:  You have created a real mess. Take the handwritten agreement and the lease to a real estate attorney right now. OR Even better, sell it to the renters!...

Q: 

PA Lease Renewal ? Pennsylvania

A:  Usually the tenant and the landlord are both aware of the term (length) of the lease. Was the lease you signed a 12 month lease agreement? If so, then you can reasonably assume that the lease period will end after 12 months and you''ll either need to renew your lease or give the landlord notice (30 days usually) that you''re not renewing. I''m confused as to how you can not know when your lease ends... it should say so right on the lease. Honestly, if the lease term isn''t listed on there, he really can''t do much in court should you decide to move in 30 days. Unless it specifically states the terms, 12 mo lease, 60 day notice for moving, etc., I can''t see the contract standing up in court. I would start looking for a place, and give 30-60 days notice when you...

Q: 

buying our first home - too good to be true ?

A:  Good heavens, don''t even think about closing on such a deal without both an updated title policy (and gap coverage, or closing in escrow) and a thorough property inspection PLUS reassurance from your municipality that no raze order is out there. Also check for work orders, arrearages on taxes, water & sewer. Use a real estate attorney. Inspect for structural defects, radon and toxic mold. I *KNEW* I came here for a reason thanks nextwife .. the guy told my husband that he wanted to give US a shot at the house before anyone else.. this all seems WAY too good to be true.. *STUPID QUESTION ALERT * will the attorney do/arrange all of the things you mentioned ? or do...

Q: 

Deceptive Easement Problem ?

A:  I doubt it. The language about the drainage easement put you on notice to inquire more closely into what exactly was there or could be placed there. You settled for a visual inspection rather that talking to the developers or city. On the other hand, if the drain pipe mouth was covered intentionally and turfed over, you might be able to argue that the developer intentionally concealed the pipe''s nature from you. Talk to a real estate attorney. Just to give some additional information, the drain pipe/mouth was completed buried (some 2 -3 feet under ground) and the entire back yard was hydroseeded. I will talk to a local real estate attorney...

Q: 

I was working thru my realator, I submitted a bid contract for 285k for home owned by a recent realator

A:  I''m sorry this happened to you Thomas. I know this can be a frustrating experience. As for legal recourse you should contact an attorney to see if you have a case. Did you have a contract or an offer? We probably need more info to be able to respond to you effectively, but my guess is that you don''t have legal recourse unless you had a signed contract, not just an offer. Sellers can consider many offers and don''t neccesarily have to respond to all. Typically there is no time limit that requires them to respond. Even if you add a time limit, all this does is limit your offer to a specific time period, but does not obligate the seller to respond by this time. This is not common in my experience, but

Q: 

Own AZ home for 2 yrs. I am sole on Mtg. Spouse and I on deed. Spouse wants to quit claim to me. does that trigger a "due on sale" with?

A:  If one spouse signs a Quit Claim Deed to remove their name from the Deed as the result of a divorce settlement? This is certainly a transfer in ownership. However, federal law prevents the Lender from demanding immediate repayment of their loan simply because two joint co-signors get a divorce. However, the spouse who signs the Quit Claim Deed still remains liable on the Mortgage, even though their name is no longer on the Deed. Lenders are entitled to know to whom they are loaning money, and to set terms and conditions. Moreover, the due-on-sale clause is now required by various federal agencies. While such a clause may hinder some real estate deals, they makes solid business sense. On this one I wont even...

Q: 

Need some advice on a complicated scenario

A:  ''1. Is it true I cannot sell my part of the inheritance and if so, why do I see all these companies willing to buy your inheritance for ‘cash now''.....etc.'' You can sell your interest in the estate to someone else if you choose. Typically they buy it at a very reduced price from its anticipated value. Then, whenever the estate distributes your share, it would go to whomever bought your interest. Note that there may be tax consequences to you for selling your interest. You cannot, however, force the estate to sell off property and make a distribution to you now, particularly if doing so means the property gets sold at a price substantially lower than its fair market value. Executors have a fiduciary...

Q: 

We purchased a pre-construction house in the outskirt of Orlando, and agreed to a 20% downpayment totaling

A:  Agi, I know it has been a while but if you still have the property I could be intersted. contact me on nugent.ted1@gmail.com. Thanks Hi, thank you all for your answers. I did contact an attorney, and as it turns out, the contract was extremely badly written... Good for me, things are looking good. Closing was set for Jan 31, and still haven''t heard from them.. Of course that 5% more changed to 10% more, which we still don''t have. And the mortgage is not moving, they want papers we don''t even have, but in the contract it doesn''t say that we lose our deposit if we don''t get the loan, it actually says that we will get our money back.. So thanks for the answers and let me know if...
