In order for a lawyer to know what is going on, whether it can be fixed, and how much it might cost, she will need to see the lien and the court documents. Sometimes fathers and sons have the same name or similar names. Sometimes a person who is sued will transfer a home to a friend or family member in order to try to avoid paying the judgment. The courts and the law are not fooled by this strategy. On the other hand, sometimes an unscrupulous creditor will try to extort a partial payment out of a family member by recording a false lien. And there are lots of other possibilities.

Reviewing the file might take an hour or more. You should plan on spending $200.00-$500.00, to find out what is going on and what a lawyer might be able to do for you.

Do you have a revocable living trust to protect your heirs against probate? Probate takes forever, is expensive, and is annoying. Do your family a favor. Set up a trust, and put all your property, especially any real property, into the trust. Since it is revocable, you can change it, add to it, take property out of it, or even cancel it completely, at any time. We set up such trusts, provide a pour-over will as a back-up for any property that does not make it into the trust, provide you with blank durable powers of attorney for health care and financial decisions, in case you become incapable of making such decisions while still alive, and convey one piece of real property to the trust, usually the family home, for $1500.00. If you would like to hire me to do this, let me know, and I'll send you a list of the information I need.

Real estate attorneys can help individuals, families and small business with all property-related legal issues. Buyers and sellers of residential and commercial real estate should work with an attorney to negotiate the terms of agreement; draft and review the contract; review related paperwork (such as loan agreements); clear existing liens on a property; and attend the closing. Lawyers can also assist property owners with addressing zoning/rezoning issues and appealing property tax assessment. Landlords and tenants should work with real estate law firms to draft and review lease agreement, handle eviction proceedings and resolve landlord-tenant disputes.
