What is the name of your state? Nevada.
This is a real dogs breakfast which I can't afford an attorney for so any help will be greatly appreciated. We received a property from a LA philanthropist. There was a 3 yr stipulation that we would take care of the ranch for 3 after which it would be deeded to us. After 3 years the amn decided to take it back. We took him to court the judge ruled in his favor but awarded us a settlement fee of $28,000. for the improvements we made to the property. He didn't pay, our attorney foreclosed, the property sold back to us at a public auction. Unbeknownst to us, his wife obtained a judgement against him because he borrowed $40,000. from her to invest in a business which he liquadated and sold out from underneath her without paying her back the loan. The judgement was filed at the recorders office against the property in 1993. We have tried to find his wife and settle with her but suspect she has gone back to South America. In the meantime a title company has offered us no advice other than to say that the judgement would transfer with the property if not removed. I want to know if there is a statute of limitations for the judgement, how do I go about getting it removed? If there is not statute that runs out how do I remove the judgement as it is clouding the title?
