Legal Answers
27 Questions Answered
Q. What can I do about property owned by my dad forced to give to mother and mother giving it to her daughter after passing
A: You would have to first prove that his transfer to her was not voluntary (under undue influence, lack of capacity, or fraud) and it took place within the statute of limitations. The claim (if any) belongs to your father's estate and would have to be filed through probate court. Talk to your step-sister and explain the situation hoping for some compromise.
Q. if the owner of an easement is not diverting water from his property and washes out the road, what can neighbors do?
A: A review of more records will determine who is responsible for maintenance and for water diversion. Neighbors or landowners connected by agreements or easements may have a right to enforcement. Consult an attorney to send a demand and follow with suit including restraining order and injunction.
Q. My brother passed away in 2020; we were joint tenants on his house, I now own; Has his mortgage loan extinguished?
A: I assume the loan only had his name and was made prior to the bankruptcy. We would need to know how it was treated in the bankruptcy--even with a discharge, he may have re-affirmed the debt making his estate liable. Regardless, your title is subject to the lien--liens are not automatically discharged by bankruptcy and your title is only as good as what he had. So even if the personal obligation to pay the loan is gone, there is a lien on the house that needs to be satisfied. [This is more a bankruptcy question]
