Legal Answers
Q. A new owner for a gas station behind me has surveyed the land and has declared that my shed and cement pad are on his
A: Attorney Greb was mostly correct, but as a NY attorney, I'd suggest that the required time period for a claim of adverse possession is at least 10 (not 20) years. A survey is absolutely necessary, and you should not rely on theirs. You should consult with an attorney in person and not here on the Internet. If you need to find one, start your search here:
Q. How do I add my mother to the deed of my home? I want to buyout my ex-husband's interest in the home & need her on there
A: Why does the bank need your mother to become an owner of your house so that she can co-sign your loan? There can be tax (costs and ramifications) and liability issues when adding someone to the title of your home, and this should not be done lightly - and certainly not at the request of someone at the bank who owes no duty to you. You need to retain an attorney to represent you in the refinance - maybe the attorney representing you in the divorce - to discuss and make sure it makes sense to add your mother to your deed. And to ensure it's done properly, assume that's what you decide.
Q. How is this legal ?? I went to court for eviction with a legal aid the pension is agree to amend petition to include
A: Adding to attorney Colatosti's answer, I want to suggest that your legal aid attorney is really the only person who can answer any questions about the agreement you entered into. Those legal aid attorneys are generally quite good at navigating optimum agreements for tenants and I would trust and follow their guidance.
