Removal from Mortgage How do I get removed from the liability of a mortgage…

Removal from Mortgage
How do I get removed from the liability of a mortgage with my ex spouse? In our divorce I was ordered to quit claim over my interest in our home to her which I did 5 years ago. She was ordered to hold harmless me from the libility of the loan. Well in 5 years she hasn’t refinanced the home in her own name so I am still liable for the loan for the house she lives in and I have no interest in. Is there any way to file a document with the court to have them force her to either sell or refinance? I am unable to move forward with my new spouse in purchasing homes or obtaining credit since my credit reports all show me liable for her loan.

Rented property not ready for tenants – tenants refund was denied
Property rented for $2,000 for one week via on-line viewing and mail sight unseen from real estate company. Property rented for 9 people from CA. Tenants, owners are from CA. Property in South Dakota. Tenants notified real estate company of expected arrival time. Property found unsanitary, notified RE company. RE agent came to property, agreed with unsanitary conditions. Tenants took video tape of dead bugs on bedding. RE agent indicated that didn’t have the owners permission to hire cleaning person. Tenants left property and rented motels rooms for 5 days 40 miles away. Tenants met with RE agent next day and asked for refund. RE agent contacted owner in CA who refused to give refund. Owner refused to speak to tenants. RE agent wrote letter and gave to tenant explaining unsanitary conditions and said she ”assumed the property weould be ready for tenants”. RE company advertised property for rent while our rental agreement was still in effect.

Do we have a case for small claims court? What are our chances of winning? Do we have to file in South Dakota or can we file in CA? Do we have to go to South Dakota for the court date?

1/2 sale of Joint Tennancy
I own a home deeded ” Joint tenancy w/ right of survivorship” w/a FORMER girlfriend. I wish to sell, she either does not, or is dragging her heels while the housing market implodes and the possible selling price drops. Several questions. #1) As a Joint tenant, may I sell MY half interest in the home?? #2) The ”X” has been making noise about going after the assets of my new wife to compensate her for losses on the house. Are any of my new spouse’s assets in jeopardy as a result of this house acquired long before our marriage?. #3) The ”X” has moved in a new boyfriend and his kids, to the home in question. It was MY intent to rent out some of the spare bedrooms to try to offset rent. A I within legal rights, as 1/2 owner of the property, to send invoices to the ”new occupant” for rent. demand for payment, notice to quit???

What are my Options with a Car I Owe Money on?

What are my Options with a Car I Owe Money on?
Please advise me on the best way to handle the following situation:

I bought a car in Florida not knowing a couple of months later I would be living in Germany for an undefinate amount of time (married a German and employed in Germany). Because I wasn’t sure of how long I would be here (employment reasons) I decided it would not be wise to get rid of the new car right away. It has been a year of me making payments and insurance payments on something that is sitting in my sisters garage. I am ready to eliminate the problem and realize I will be losing a good chunk of money. I realize I can’t sell the car privately because I don’t own it. I just sent the Power of Attorney to my sister to be able to sell my car. What are my options to end this whole ordeal with my car? No one seems to know and I can’t find any answers. I thought possibly of selling it back to the place I purchase it for. They will offer about half of what I owe so I am a bit reluctant. Please help.

Is it possible to file 498a in this following?

Is it possible to file 498a in this following?
Sir/Madam,
Iam 48 years old female. married for 30 years now. My husband was always abusive. He used really filthy words about me and my entire family. Last year he demanded a land which my mother gave me. I refused to give it. Based my in-laws advice he left me. He is living somewhere in the same city. When my brother met him, he asked for Rs.5 lakhs to come and run the family. My brother gave it to him for my well being. But he took that money also and ran away. We waited patiently for around 1 year now but nothing good happened. Since iam 48 yrs old, Is it possible for me to file a criminal case on him through 498a under the fact that he has cruelly deserted me? One more thing…The day he left the house, he kicked me in the lower abdomen and forcefully obtained my signature on a blank check which he later used to withdraw Rs.10 lakhs from my sons account. My son is a NRI and I was the power of attorney holder of my sons bank account. So he made it appear as if I took the money out of my sons bank account. Can I file using sections 498a + 406 + 420? Iam planning to apply for divorce also since I cannot bear this atrocity anymore from my husband and my inlaws. Please advise me thinking me as one of your sisters.

contingency contract by parent for a minor and minor rights as an adult
When my so was 9 we were involved in an auto accident. the other driver was at fault and was insured. I settled my claim with ins co directly my ex husband hired an attorney for his and asked that he be allowed to do likewise for my son. My son is now 20 years old and the attorney has finally received an acceptable settlement offer. However the paperwork he has sent my son claims a settlement of $10.000 and includes with it a power of attorney form and a release form which states that the attorney is to receive $4,900.00. The agreement we had was 33 1/3%. He states he will not file this case with the court and that my sons Statute of limitations runs out on 4/19/2004. What can my son do ? Is he bound by the contract We signed? the attorney has been asked for a copy of the contract but has declined to produce it. I feel he is taking advantage of my sons inexperience and placing unfair pressure on him to settle this in this way. What are my sons rights and responsibilities? What can he do?

I have sold my mobile home, but in order for the buyer to move it, he will have to pull it across my neighbors’ land. My question is, if he does damage to their property, whose responsibility is it? Mine as the landowner or the new owner of the trailer? My property is only accessible by an easement on one neighbors land, but the mover will have to venture out in one of the neighbors hay fields and they both are already upset about the potential damage. Thank you! Jan
