State Bar of Texas
Cody works on the following:
Problems with title: We have the cure (curative)
A person died and now you need to transfer title out of their name. Depending on the facts, you may need a court order to give you the authority to transfer or sell the property (Probate);
only an Affidavit of Heirship with General Warranty Deed is needed.
But If any of the heirs do not easily agree to sign over their interest to you or someone else, then you’ll likely need a Family Settlement Agreement to move the transaction forward.
Avoiding the above Probate problem:
Estate Planning with Pour-Over Wills and Revocable Trusts
Medical Power of Attorney and Financial Power of Attorney
Declaration of Guardian before the need arises.
Private or Commercial Real Estate Loan documentation:
Deed of Trust
GWD with Vendor’s Lien
When the above occupant doesn’t pay:
Foreclosure or Deed in lieu of Foreclosure
Notice of Trustee Sale
Physical presence at courthouse auction on your behalf
Tenant Eviction proceedings
Notice to Vacate/ Filing Eviction suit
Writ of Possession to physically remove tenant if necessary/ Landlord regain property
Business Structuring for future growth:
Complete package to form LLC or Series LLC for multiple entities (properties)
Company Agreement and Bylaws
Assignment of your LLC’s interest to your Trust so your business avoids probate if you pass away.
Contract Reviews and disputes:
Breach of Contract Demand for Payment
Demand to Cease & Desist/ Non-Compete Agreement Violation
Abstract of Judgement
Mechanic’s liens/ Release of liens
