11 Questions Answered
- Q. Can they put a lien on my moms house over my deceased dads debt that she didnt agree to?
- A: Yes they can. I agree with Robert. In short, the roofer did work on the house. You mother, living there, is benefiting from the work done. The roofer has a valid claim and can put a lien on the home.
- Q. I live in Illinois, Im turning 18 in 5 days, when i turn 18 im wanting to go live with my boyfriend in Pennsylvania.
- A: The car and the phone belong to your parents because they are titled under their name. Yes, your parents have total control over their use. These items were not "gifts" but things which your parents own and let you use. If you do take the car and phone and refuse to return them if asked, you could be charged with theft.
- Q. I recieved a check made out to my deceased brother. Can I cash it by signing it in his name and undersigning it in mine?
- A: Typically a bank will not accept that. Signing your brother's name is a forgery. Acting as though your brother has signed the check over to you is a fraud. More important is from whom or where is the check? Does your deceased brother deserve the money? If you take the money, and it turns out that the payment was made in error, you will be required to repay it. As to what you should do - there are too many variables and unknowns to properly answer that.
