Legal Answers
Q. R.I. law that allows a tenant in common owner of property to sell its share w/o permission from the other cotenants.
A: Yes, there is a Rhode Island that allows a common owner to sell the property, by bringing a civil action called a petition for partition and sale. The court will first review whether the property can be divided (partitioned) into a separate parcel of land for the petitioner. If so, then that is the remedy, and the petitioner can then sell that separate parcel. If the property cannot be divided into separate parcels of land because it is too small or there is not enough road access, then the court will decide that the whole property should be sold and the proceeds divided between the common owners. The property is then listed on the open market and sold by an agent. The proceeds of the sale are divided according to the common owners's percentage of ownership. If two joint owners, then 50/50 (after costs).
Q. What is a universal appointment bond. If the bond says $300,000 what does that mean and why. Thank you for your help
A: It means that if the executor or administrator were to fail in his duties to the beneficiaries of the probate estate, then the beneficiaries can claim against the bond up to the amount of $300,000. Often the bond is a personal bond with no surety, meaning it is given by the executor or administrator personally. Sometimes the bond is given with surety, which is similar to an insurance policy.
Q. I own 2 lots in Narragansett RI. There is a paper road between the two properties. Does the town own the paper road.
A: A paper road remains the town's property even if the town does nothing with it. The town does not have to build a road on it in order to keep it as a paper road. The town retains the option to build a road on the area of the paper road at any time in the future. As for whether or not the land is buildable as a roadway, you will have to assume that it is. It might be expensive to do it, but it can be done. Sorry I don't have any good news for you.
