36 Questions Answered

Q. What percentage of owners must agree to dissolve a condo association?
A: the answer to your question is in the condo bylaws or other association documents.
Q. I have been asked to sign my daughters lease with her. She will get renters insurance,. Am I protected?
A: Renters insurance doesn't protect your personal liability to the landlord, only if she names you on the policy will you be protected if someone is injured on the property or items are stolen, or flood/fire etc depending on the extent of the policy.. If she doesn't pay the rent, you are likely the guarantor and the landlord will come after you for payment and you are liable since you signed. Read the lease, the terms she is held to are the same terms you're likely held to.
Q. Is it legal for a Bank to not allow you to review documents prior to closing?
A: This question should be directed to your closing attorney. I'm sure by now you have.
Q. My mortgage company is telling me that I still have to pay PMI and in my PMI disclosure states when I reach 78% why
A: How did you determine that you are below 78%? Based on the original appraised value of the home? If not, then that may be why. Also sometimes there are conditions which state another event must occur before PMI will be released. Look to your mortgage documents for that. Sometimes you just need to call or write to notify your lender that you've reached the threshold to effectuate the release of PMI. You often must also have a good payment record and be up to date on all payments or even get an appraisal. There are a lot of things that you may not be doing which could be the reason. Another question: is this PMI or is it Federal Housing Administration Insurance? PMI can be cancelled but FHA insurance cannot. If you want to get rid of PMI you can always look to refinance if your loan allows for it.
Q. How can I force an ex-partner to leave my home? He pays nothing and we are no longer a couple.
A: If he does not own the property and he has no lease with you and has not paid or contributed to household expenses evidencing some sort of agreement that he stay, then I would call the police as he is trespassing.
Q. I want to stop the sale of my aunt's home. She passed away and didn't have a will house is paid for what can I do?
A: You can go to the probate court where the estate is being probated and state your case to the judge. If you are not an heir and have no right to assets of the estate, then i'd say you're likely out of luck. If you live there without a lease agreement then the estate administrator likely has the right to evict you in order to sell the property. You can try to ask to purchase the property from the estate, which might be the best option. Consult a local probate attorney for assistance.
Q. ow do I get rid of an abandoned truck on my property? My daughters bf parked it there and i don't know who owns it
A: Have it towed.
Q. Buyer never responded to our response after inspection report and now its past the dead line.
A: seek the help of the real estate attorney you hired for the closing. They should be assisting you with this issue.
Q. Looking to start LLC to finance other business ventures down the road. How should we set it up given situation?
