Legal Answers
Q. My father passed and I believe he left everything to my sister. He had a small policy for his grandchildren and I was in
A: If I understand your question, your father named you the beneficiary on a life insurance policy, but left everything to you sister in his will. A life insurance policy is not an asset of the estate and instead is a contract between the Insurance company, the owner of the policy and the beneficiary of the policy. As long as the beneficiary provides the information requested by the insurance company the insurance proceeds should be delivered to the benficiary according to the terms of the insurance policy.
Q. Auditor had wrong info on property record
A: I agree with the suggested course of action to file a complaint or appeal for the re-valuation of your property. Concerns about past valuations and past real property taxes paid are unavailable after the time to file a complaint for re-valuation lapses each year. A recent appraisal and the information regarding the incorrect measurements might make a difference, but some County websites state that a new appraisal alone will be insufficient.
Q. Bought a lot that advertised utilities in place and Found out that no utilities are in place
A: Based solely upon the information provided, you may have a claim for fraudulent misrepresentation. However, the contract could have language in it negating any representation made by the seller, or the lack of utilities may have been open and obvious or readily detectable upon a reasonable inspection, which may alter your ability to recover.
