Q. I have a question regarding real estate
A: Responsibility for fence maintenance should be in the documentation that created the easement. You can usually get these types of documents from a title company.
Q. Me and my family made a verbal agreement with our private landlord.
A: If you do not have a written agreement your “landlord” has nothing to enforce if you move out. Just make sure there are no emails or texts that, if taken together, can show the terms of your rental. If there are, you should consult an attorney.
Q. In MO Landlord passed away 6 months ago. House is in foreclosure or probate.Idk which. Who is responsible for repairs?
A: Missouri law provides a specific procedure for making repairs and deducting the cost from the rent. At the very least, you should notify both the bank and the lawyer IN WRITING of the habitability issues that need to be addressed and your intention to repair and deduct. For detailed information on the process, you should consult an attorney.
Q. My daughter has a mobile home on my land in Missouri. How do i evict her and her trailer.
A: There are statutes that regulate eviction of mobile homes that you will need to follow. You really need to consult an attorney to make sure you follow the law so you can get them and their trailer out legally and permanently.
Q. Is there a specific type of lawyer to work with to draft a contract to give to someone to that owes you a large sum of $
A: Any contract attorney should be able to help you with this type of agreement. If the debtors breach the agreement you will still have to go through the court process but you can put in provisions that will give them incentive not to breach.
Q. Legally, can I do anything in Missouri to get her out ASAP if rent is already 5 days late? What's the process?
A: A properly worded and lawfully prepared notice can give her three days to either pay in full or move out. If she fails to do either you still have to go through the eviction process. You should consult an attorney
Q. Is my title company my advocate if it is holding monies paid by the seller before closing?
A: Generally speaking, a title company does not act as an advocate at all. It is a neutral third party to a transaction. If there is a disagreement about funds held in escrow, you should talk to an attorney about how best to reach an agreement on disbursement.
Q. My nephew lives with my mother in a house I purchased. He pays for nothing. What will it take to get him out?
A: This situation may be more involved than you would think. There are legal procedures in place to evict tenants, but it can be more difficult to evict squatters. You may want to get your nephew paying some nominal amount now, so he can be considered a tenant when the time comes. You should consult an attorney to help make sure you do it by the book.
Q. I am trying to catch up on my rent and have paid alot to it my question is can she add my balance even higher tocatch-up
A: The terms of your lease will control this situation. If your lease provides that there are late fees or administrative fees charged for late rent, the landlord may accrue those fees.
