Problem with landowner
My sister committed suicide back in April. She left lots of debts – credit cards, mobile home, horse trailer and land. I know that we have to sell her assets (a truck and 4 horses) to pay these debts – but that won’t cover everything. The mobile home and horse trailer companies are going to ‘repose’ these to try and collect what is owed.
But the problem lies with the lady my sister was buying the land from. This was one of those private lease to own. She paid a montly amount and in a few years would own the property. Of course this means that she had no equity – that I know.
BUT my nephew has been paying the lease to own amount because the mobile home was still there (waiting on company to send out pick up people) and there were 4 horses of Carol’s on the land.
We just found out that the landowner has sold the land and taken the horses to another property that she owns. My nephew has never signed any waiver to the property nor was he given any kind of eviction notice. We were told that they are going to post these horses for sale as ‘Abandoned’ and keep the money.
Can they sell the land without giving him notice to vacate the property? Can they ‘steal’ the horses? What exactly are his options?
