3 Questions Answered
- Q. Do I have to pay on a residential lot the past due HOA dues that were prior to me inheriting the property?
- A: This is a complicated issue that should be handled by an attorney who is familiar with HOA law. There are many potential facts that the answer to your question depends upon. When you say there were no lien holders, do you mean that the HOA had not recorded an affidavit claiming delinquent assessments before the deed into your name was recorded? If there was not such an affidavit filed, this is a fact in your favor. Next, does the association require resale certificates for property that is transferred, and did you obtain one that stated that there were no delinquent dues owing? If yes to both, this is another fact in your favor. An attorney probably needs to review the Declaration for the association to give a definitive answer to your question. One thing is for certain, you are liable for any assessments that came due from the effective date of the deed into you.
- Q. Does a text message serve as a 3 day notice in the state of Texas?
- A: Assuming you are entitled to 3 days notice because a shorter period is not set forth in a written lease or agreement, before a landlord may file an eviction in Texas, it must provide a written notice that is delivered in person to tenant, left with someone 16 or over at the premises, affixed to the inside of the main entry door (or outside in some cases), or mailed to the tenant. Caution: while you may be successful at an eviction hearing on this point and get to remain in the premises longer, the landlord will most likely send a new notice and file a new eviction in which you may be ultimately liable for more rent and additional attorney's fees.
- Q. Me and my brother are heirs to my parents house. He does not want anything. What happens
- A: You will need some type of probate proceeding. This can include probating the will, a muniment of title if the house is the only assest, an heirship proceeding if there is no will, or perhaps an affidavit of heirship, if appropriate. Your brother, in conjunction with the appropriate procedure for your situation, can file a disclaimer of his interest in house.
