Legal Answers
30 Questions Answered
Q. If an unmarried couple owns a house together and then the relationship ends, can you get the other owner out somehow?
A: A lawyer may advice you to file a partition claim in which the lawyer may further suggest to ask the court to buy her out. But, all of these depends on how you both own currently own the property, how long you lived, who paid for down payment, who pays for mortgage, utilities, other expenses, etc. The answer then will depend on a variety of information and documents you provide to a lawyer to guide you properly.

This is not a legal advice nor any attorney-client relationship established.
Q. Under contract to buy a property in Virginia. The property has deed restrictions. Can I forfeit earnest money to get out
A: It is a bit unclear as to what it means to be "approved" and by whom. There is also the matter of whether you told anyone/seller, your agent that you want to add more bedrooms and if you cannot, you do not want it. As Mr. Wilson explained below, it is also depends on the contracts and other factors. See a lawyer.
Q. Is a listing agreement that doesn't include the names of all the owners of a property valid?
A: A dead person does not own anything. He/she is gone. Anything that deceased person owned now belongs to someone else. That someone else is determined by a variety of methods including how title/ownership was held by the dead person and what Mr. Sternberg explains in his answer. You need to determine who owns the property now and those are the people that should be part of the contract to make this a smooth transfer of ownership to the new buyer.
