Kathy Burgreen answered:
Attorney fees vary so nobody can advise you as to how much it will cost. Start contacting real estate attorneys (make sure they deal with real estate) and ask them how much their fee is. The issue also has to do with what type of lien you have. Is it a mechanics lien? An IRS lien? A property tax lien? A lender's lien? ... more

If you don't have a pre-nup then you're in trouble .. speak with your attorney. If you do end up having to sell, try to minimize your closing costs (see link below) at least and do a flat fee RLS or agent managed FSBO to avoid the traditional 6% broker fee.

Otherwise, if you get lazy and just call up a traditional broker to do it for 6%, you'll quickly eliminate roughly 1/3 of your home equity and any gains you accumulated over the years.

Good luck!

If you just want to put his name on the stock certificate yes you can do a transfer. Ask your real estate attorney it should be straightforward.

If you are asking because you are getting divorced without a pre-nup ... well definitely consult your attorney.

If you do need to sell, definitely make sure you cut down on your closing costs by doing a flat fee RLS listing or agent managed FSBO vs paying the standard 6% broker commission. The latter will quickly eliminate 1/3 of your home equity and much of your gains. I recommend working with a local FSBO company like Hauseit if you're in NYC. Good luck!

Steve Hanover, VA. answered:
If you included a mortgage in your bankruptcy that was secured by the house, the bank can foreclose on the house whenever they want. Period. End of story. The house was/is the bank’s security/collateral for the money (mortgage) that you borrower so they have the right to liquidate the collateral to cover their losses.

Sorry.

Sally Grenier answered:
Keep in mind that Trulia is really just a database that pulls info from various sources, such as MLSs (for sale listings) and public records from county assessor's websites. It's possible that your info is wrong at the county level. Usually this happens because work was done on the house that may not have been permitted. You might want to check your county records info and figure out why there is a discrepancy. But beware that this could open a can of worms! (if you or a previous owner had un-permitted work done). But...if it was permitted and it's just an error on their part, then you can get them to correct it....BUT then your taxes will go up!! So...I'd be careful about why you need this info corrected on this particular website. If your home isn't for sale, then it really shouldn't matter. I would just leave it as is. ... more

June Buerkle answered:
When we rent, we do some things to try and retain good tenants. When they renew their annual lease, we time an upgrade or tenant request with the renewal. One year it might be as new refrigerator, another time new carpet or Re-paint deck, etc. I usually keep it around $500 or so, but have gone higher for good tenants. The repair or item is always tax deductible so it helps me out, but also keeps the tenant happy.

In this case, I would buy the washer and dryer, that way I would own it and can write it off. If you let them buy it and lower the rent to accommodate it, you can't write that off.
