Q: The person I bought a property from agreed to make major repairs before I acquired the property, but they failed to fulfill their responsibilities- what should I do?
A: First you should contact the person you bought the property from to see if they have made plans for the repairs to be completed. If they did not make plans for the repairs to be made, did not make plans for the repairs to be made in a timely fashion, or do not intend to uphold their part of the bargain, you may need to file a lawsuit. Contact our real estate attorney for a consultation on your specific situation.
Q: What is a property lien?
A: A lien is a legal claim to a piece of property to secure a debt. You cannot refinance or sell property if you do not have clear title. You must pay off the lien to have clear title. A property lien is generally public record.
Q: What is a junior lien?
A: A lien on a property, by time or agreement, that is subordinate to another lien. In other terms – you have two property liens, the one that is second in priority is your junior lien.
Q: How much notice do I have to give my landlord before moving out?
A: The notice you must give a landlord before moving out is entirely dependent on the agreement you have with your landlord. If you break your lease early, you may be responsible for paying the rent until the lease has been filled by a new tenant (with your landlord actively seeking a preplacement tenant in an appropriate amount of time). A consultation with our real estate lawyer will help you understand the specifics of your unique case.
Q: What is a foreclosure?
A: A foreclosure is a legal process by which a creditor gains control of a mortgaged property, after the property owner has defaulted on payments. The creditor then has the right to sell the property and pay off the defaulted mortgage with the proceeds of the sale.

Talk to a lawyer to see how to further proceed with any breach of these rules.
Q: How can I find out if the property I want to buy has any liens against it?
A: If you’re borrowing money from a lender, they will find out for you. If you’re not borrowing money, you will have to go through a title company or contact a lawyer.
Q: I have violated a small part of my rental agreement – is this ground for eviction?
A: Yes. It can be. However, you do have options. Eviction differs depending on your lease agreement. If you are unsure about your options once given an eviction notice of any sort, contact us, and we will help you determine your best option.
Q: How do I find out who owns a foreclosed property?
