No, no, NO!!! Paying the bill will NOT automatically make you the owner. Your friend received a Notice of Trustee's Sale because SHE is the owner and has all rights of ownership. Consult an attorney if you wish you to obtain ownership or an equitable interest in the property which your friend must agree to give. An attorney can also help ensure repayment of your funds by promissory note and deed of trust she you decide you simply want your money back.

Yes, the days are dwindling and the knee-jerk reaction is to step in and help. You should. But you need a plan to "keep the business as business" so you can maintain your friendship.

Again, you need an attorney. There is much more to the story than I have written.

Good luck to both of you!!

If you are attempting mediation, your mediator is the person best able to answer your question. The mediator, or an attorney.

Karen Peyton answered:
Generally no, but not in all cases. It depends. It depends on the writing of the contract which may give the Seller the right to cancel the sale. Ask your agent's advice or seek the advice of an attorney. The rights and responsibilities of both the Buyer and Seller are contained in the purchase contract.

Good luck!

Since there is really no "local authorities" to really speak of (Maricopa Co sheriff presence off I-10 is very rare, fire dept is about it) who can you ask questions from...and the stats below don't really show all info either. Here's my view as 3-yr resident: There is plenty of wildlife in Tonopah area; snakes, scorpions, foxes, coyotes, lizards, hawks, vultures, wild burros, etc. not to mention all the dogs running around unleashed. My son is three and I'd never let him play unsupervised in our fenced back yard. All well water needs to be filtered. Without any street lights, it's really dark outside at night. It limits chances to go out for a walk, bike riding, etc when it's cooler early morning and late evening. There is no community parks, playgrounds, libraries etc in Tonopah, the nearest ones are 20+ miles west in Buckeye. So I'd not recommend this area for families with young kids. ... more
