Q. My gf and I bought a house last July. We are both on the deed. I pay everything else and the only one on the mortgage.
A: You are both owners of the property, however, it sounds like you are no longer in the relationship. If neither party can agree to who gets the house then you will have to file a partition motion and ask that the property be sold. I would talk to a local attorney who specializes in real property or just a general practice attorney.
Q. is it legal for my landlord to give me 30 days to find another place to live because she refuses t repair water damage
A: Unless your lease contains a very unusual renewal provision they are absolutely within their rights to decline to renew the lease. Even with the facts you laid out, I would be very surprised if they would be required to renew your lease.
Q. We purchased our home in NC in 1996. At the time of purchase, the entire backyard was fenced in with a 6 ft stockade
A: You would have to file an action for adverse possession, you would likely succeed given the facts that you stated. I recommend finding a local lawyer to assist you in this as it is a complicated matter.
