I own a house that was previously used as rental property that I am no longer interested in. The house does need some repairs nothing major. I want to use this as a tax write off. I know I need an appraisal what I don't know is what type of charity would this donation benefit the both of us. I don't mean to sound cold but I am not a rich person so I want to make sure we both come out ahead.9 AnswersRenting & Real Estate2 years ago
My mom has a rental house and she had a tenant on a month to month basis with no lease. The tenant has abounded the property and never said a word. The electric has been turned off by whom we have no idea. She left drug dealers in the house and the house is trashed in a bad way. The legals are we have to evict her how can you evict someone who no longer lives there and we have no idea where she is. I hate for my mom to have to go to court over this to gain custody of her house back. She had to call the police to get one drug dealer out of the house and the house is full of junk and what I suspect is stolen property. The cops never went in the house but they did haul him away. The house is really old and now it is a mess. I don't understand why we have to go to court over this.if the house sits empty too long the druggies will come in and finish demolishing it. Is there another way to spend this out?4 AnswersRenting & Real Estate4 years ago

I am the administrator of my Aunt and
Uncle's estate,they had no children and the estate fell to our Uncle who has 8 heir's.We agreed to have an estate sale and hire someone to conduct that.We asked for recommendations and got and experienced estate seller who priced everything in the house had a person stationed in every room to make sure nothing was stolen.
He also had a police officer outside checking everyone's receipt to make sure they paid for what they got. We were all pleased with the outcome of the sale.
We fixed up the house and hired a realtor and had the house sold. We are all in agreement with how the sales have gone. One of the heirs died during this time and the judge insisted his will had to go into probate his widow did not want to do that and we tried to show the judge how he could have named her his legal representative yes we have a lawyer who did this. The judge refused he insisted on the probate so she did that.6 AnswersRenting & Real Estate6 years ago
My husband told me today he was at work, he works construction anyway he did something that was a no,no like not using safety equipment when he was suppose to. Yes I know he should have anyway he said several others had been doing the same exact thing all week he just got caught and told to leave the job immediately. He says they will fine his company and they in turn would take it out of his check like $500. He said the fine started like at $150 and every offense make it go up. So he will be paying for others mistakes as well. Hmmm I kinda thinking unless he signed something saying he would be responsible for said fine it would be illegal for them to take this out of his check. BTW he has worked for this same company for 30 years. This has NEVER happened before.4 AnswersLaw & Ethics6 years ago
I have a friend who is 53 her family tricked her into going into a nursing home because she is disabled. They told her she was going into rehab while she was there they had her declared incompetent and sold her house. She is not incompetent. She wants to buy her house back and return home. I am not sure she can live by herself but she is telling me she can get someone to live with her in exchange for free rent and board and helping her. I don't know how dependable that would be for her. She is also diabetic. I know she really does need this kind of care in the nursing home but they have placed her in one that is not very good. Does anyone know of any options she could look at? Let me mention she is on disability and she has medicaid that is the extent of her income.4 AnswersHealth Care6 years ago
About two years ago my husbands brother died it was a lengthy illness and he was very close to him. We spent many days at the hospital and I went with every time. I was there the day he died. When the funeral was over he told me he was going to take another day off his brothers told me they were going back to work the next day. I asked why he was not going back to work and he exploded and told me I was a cold hearted bit*%. Mind you I did not insist he go back or fuss about it I just asked him and got cussed out. He assured me when someone close to me died he was going to make sure to raise he**. Well that day arose today two years later. I am a only child and a male cousin I am extremely close to that is like a brother to me died unexpectedly I was devastated.
My husband was in out scuba diving in another state but he planned to come home today and did and went with me to my cousins house to be with our family. They were discussing music and he wants to play his guitar and sing a song that is non religious. We are a very religious family and I told him if your going to play something can't it be one of your songs you know that would fit with our religion. He came home proceeded to get drunk told me I might as well said he did not sing good enough to sing at my cousins funeral that is not true and it is not how I feel. He does sing well enough but the family was discussing hymns not some country song that has nothing to do with someone dying. Then he started on me about how I told him to go to work when his brother died screamed at me told me I was a bit** and a liar and he wants a divorce right after Christmas. We are having a family get together tomorrow and some of these people only see each other once a year in person and he wants to play his guitar and sing there as well at somebody else's house that he was not invited to sing at for this event. Due to the circumstances I just think it is the right thing I know the people there are going to want to visit and it will be a time to fill everyone in on what is going on with the funeral and to remember my cousin not a held audience for him to preform.
I have been so upset today I couldn't bring myself to eat until late this afternoon. I think I have been drug down the street and stomped on properly. He told me he is going to find him somebody else I am thinking promise. He is tire of my crap. Really?6 AnswersMarriage & Divorce7 years ago

My friends sister has stage 4 cancer and her prognosis is not good. I am going to condense this question. The parents of these grown women divorced when they were teenagers and never spoke to them again. The father in his older years suffered a serious of strokes and the younger sister stepped in and took it upon herself to take care of him in her own home she was told he did not have long to live. He ended up living 12 more years he left the younger sister everything he had which included 100 acres and a 25,000 life insurance policy he left his older daughter nothing. Now the older sister is dying the mother thinks the younger sister should sell that 100 acres and divide it with her sister the younger sister disagrees and her Mom is resentful she won't comply. I am torn the sisters are married but neither husband will work IKR. The younger sisters kids are grown and on their own the older sister still has one in private school. I'm thinking family is family she desperately needs the help the sick one is dragging herself to work it's sad to watch I think God would say put her before money she is not being asked for all of it just half and she is well enough to work I hope that is what I would do.

My question is about the scripture in Matthew where it talks about how everyone will be held accountable for every idle word spoken.

I am the executor of an estate there are eight heirs. Everything has been done for this estate and we are ready to close it but we had one of the heirs to die unexpectedly The judge is refusing to close the estate because this dead heir does not have a legal representative to sign for him because his widow refuses to probate his will. The widow is refusing to probate his will because she says he left no assets and there is no reason to. Her lawyer is telling her not to probate this will.
Yes I do know I can patrician the court to become the executor of that will as well but I would rather shoot myself. I heard we could have her portion of the money put into a court account and close the estate and give everyone else their money and let her worry about how to get her money out. But the judge is refusing to do that as well. We are not talking about millions of dollars this is a small amount of money. I was under the impression if it were possible to put her money in a court account we have that option but apparently the judges here can do as they please. Now I understand we may have to move this to a civil court which means we have to pay out a lot more money to do this to get this stupid thing closed. I don't understand why the probate judge is being so difficult. I understand he follows the law and that is all I am asking him to do. Yes we do have a lawyer and he is working on it slowly this has been going on for almost two years. Not the closing part the whole thing. I just wish I had more insight to the legal system and how it works. Any advice would be greatly appreciated. This in Montgomery Alabama.2 AnswersLaw & Ethics7 years ago
