QUESTIONS

  • I'm going through a very ugly separation from an abussive husband.I'm currently out of the job and can not pay my utility bills and I have 2 kids. Can I get any assistance with paying my utility bills??
  • The home I'm renting (leased through August 2015) was foreclosed on and there's a new owner. Do I have to pay rent to the new owner if I'm leaving in 6 weeks? Or do they have to give me an eviction notice? The new owner is demanding rent, but she doesn't have the deed yet, just a proof of purchase receipt.
  • Will my beneficiaries’ inheritance be taxed?
  • I bought land in September from Mortgage. There is a mobile home on the land. We didnt buy this home only the land. So we talk to the lady give her an eviction notice to move the house from our property in 30 days. She leaves the home and the home is still on our property. So we take her to court to move the home. She doesn't come. So the judge rendered on our favor. Does that give me the okay to sell?
