As housing prices have appreciated, we have seen less foreclosures and short sales - they're not gone, but clearly reduced in number recently.

The trend we've seen in an increase in other types of lawsuits with the increase in property values.

In particular, I have many more partition lawsuits in the office than I did a year or even six months ago. In a partition lawsuit, two co-owners are fighting over whether to sell a jointly owned home, and when sold how much does each owner receive from the sale. Typically, partition lawsuits arise between unmarried individuals that own property - siblings or extended family, non-married individuals that co-own a home, and people who acquire a home jointly as heirs of a deceased person.

Along with partition lawsuits, we have also seen a rise in quiet title lawsuits. The purpose of a quiet title lawsuit is to have the Court determine whether someone's interest in a house is legitimate - maybe an heir omitted from probate, or maybe a "wild deed" in the title.

On this week's episode of the Crushing Debt Podcast, George and Shawn talk about real estate, partition and quiet title lawsuits.

The Personal Finance Education Bill (HB 1054) became law in Florida as of July 1, 2022.  The new law requires a financial literacy course as a prerequisite to high school graduation.

George and I were thinking, if we designed the course, or if Governor DeSantis consulted with us to design the course, what are the top five things we would include (and then we thought up a few more).

  • How to balance a checking account
  • Understanding spending behaviors
  • Budgeting
  • Understanding Credit Score
  • and more ...

After listening to the episode, do you agree?  What would you include? Can you connect us with Governor DeSantis?

When should we teach financial literacy lessons to our kids, and what should we teach them?

What does "financial literacy" really mean?

What are the common financial problems people are facing today?

Why do so few states teach personal finance in public schools?

Today's guest on the Crushing Debt Podcast is Vince Shorb, one of the country's leading advocates for promoting financial wellness and a thought leader in teaching and scaling financial education programming. Vince founded the National Financial Educators Council, an organization dedicated to combating the financial literacy epidemic. Vince's mission is to create a world where people are informed to make qualified financial decisions and confidently take effective financial action that best helps them meet their basic human needs while moving towards fulfilling their personal, family and global community needs.

George and I talk to Vince about his financial journey and the lessons he learned along the way. We answer all of the questions above. Also we talk about the Florida Personal Finance Education Bill, which took effect July 1, 2022.

If someone owes you money and files bankruptcy, how do you get paid?

What is the role of the bankruptcy trustee?

How does the bankruptcy trustee value assets?

This week's episode is great question by one of our listeners, and former guests Mechiel Kopaska, who sent us a question about how the bankruptcy trustee pays out creditors in a bankruptcy case.

You can hear Mechiel's episode here: https://yesnerlawpodcast.libsyn.com/stuck-in-a-job-episode-263

You can find her podcast here: Episodes - Mechiel Kopaska

George and I also talk about how to keep down the cost and expense of a move (something George recently experienced), and George's Money & Kids Seminar.

We would love more listener feedback! Are there any questions we can answer on the show? What more can we provide to you to add value - a summit, a course, a webinar?
