Barely Got Out With Our Lives
My daughter/boyfriend and toddler were renting a mobile home with inadequate safety standards. Due to the fact that they were young and hadn’t any credit, they moved into this home with the stipulation that the landlord would make the necessary repairs. Hey…what can I say, they were young and the place was across the street from the beach in Newport. Any kids fantasy. Well, in this case…it turned into their nightmare. The landlord ignored any requests to have the electricity repaired. After their first week there, the electricity blew out in the back half of the home. A couple of months later the electricity still was not repaired, a circuit overloaded in the front of the mobile home burning it to the ground, destroying everything the family owned: including, the car and two cats. They literally ran out of the house naked, with the baby. The landlord offered them nothing for reimbursement…not even a hotel room for the night. What recourse do we have??? And what type of attorney would handle this? They are still having difficulty trying to cope with the trauma and get back on their feet. The incident happened in the middle of June 2006. Any suggestions? Please advise.

Refinancing a property
When my late husband passed away 10 years ago, the ground we owned was in his name and the mobile home that we lived in was in mine. When we were all finished with the estate, ect. I ended up with a property of 31 acres that is owned by my children (one is now 19 and the other is 16). I am trying to refinance and the day before closing I am told that I need to have the children taken off of the deed. How do I go about doing this in a rather quick manner.

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.

New Owners Will Change Records at Courthouse
We previously owned a mobile home in Illinois. This was sold to a young couple in 2003. We have received the mobile home tax bill every year since. The new owners have always paid the tax, but have not yet bothered to change the records at the courthouse. I know that they need to take the title there in order to get the records changed. I called the manager of the mobile home park and had her relay this information to them. I was told by the courthouse that unless someone brings the title there showing that they are the owners then it will remain in my husband’s name. What can I do about this? We no longer live in the state of Illinois which makes the problem a little more complicated. Thanks
