Q. My house sold back to lender at auction, the clerk of courts told me I have until June 4th to file for redemption.
A: If your house sold and certificate of sale issued then you have no redemption rights. Right of redemption ends when the certificate of sale issues (usually same day as or day after the auction) per the below statute; it is very likely too late now. 45.0315 Right of redemption.—At any time before the later of the filing of a certificate of sale by the clerk of the court or the time specified in the judgment, order, or decree of foreclosure, the mortgagor or the holder of any subordinate interest may cure the mortgagor’s indebtedness and prevent a foreclosure sale by paying the amount of moneys specified in the judgment, order, or decree of foreclosure, or if no judgment, order, or decree of foreclosure has been rendered, by tendering the performance due under the security agreement, including any amounts due because of the exercise of a right to accelerate, plus the reasonable expenses of proceeding to foreclosure incurred to the time of tender, including reasonable attorney’s fees of the creditor. Otherwise, there is no right of redemption.
Q. I want to break my lease. I have tried to be reasonable, 60 day notice to move out 7/31/18.
A: You aren't entitled to a termination fee if you signed a waiver of liquidated damages though, only to pay the full rent still owed if you breach. Landlord does not have to rerent the property at all to reduce what you owe per statute 83.595. It is one option there, IF landlord retakes possession, but not the only option there. Landlord can also "[s]tand by and do nothing, holding the lessee liable for the rent as it comes due." I would not risk it if you cannot reach an agreement
Q. I win a final judgement for $3000. How much would it cost to put a lis pendens on a property of the losing party.
A: All you need to do is record the judgment against the property; as long as your judgment conforms to the requirements and has the property address for Defendant in the judgment. It costs a few dollars to record the judgment. But if it is the homestead of Defendant the lien doesn't attach anyway and likely a waste of time.
Q. Does Notice of Hearing need to state purpose of the hearing?
A: Generally, a notice of hearing is supposed to state what is being heard, just the title of the motion; unless the court set it and it is a case management/status conference with no specific item being heard. You need to reach out to the county for each hearing you need assistance at per the below. for Citrus County: AMERICANS WITH DISABILITIES ACT. If you are a person with a disability who needs any accommodation in order to participate in this proceeding, you are entitled, at no cost to you, to the provision of certain assistance. Please contact the ADA Coordinator for Citrus County, John Sullivan, at (352) 341-6700 at least 7 days before your scheduled court appearance, or immediately upon receiving this notification if the time before the scheduled appearance is less than 7 days; if you are hearing or voice impaired, call 711. There is also an online form here
A: Writ of possession. You may want/need a lawyer to do this, but it should not be expensive at all.
Q. I am an agent and have a listing that is expired but now have a buyer for the home who wants to put in an offer.
A: Depends on what your listing agreement said about protection periods. While you can sign an agreement with buyer and communicate buyer's offer, sellers have no duty to do anything with it. Just like any other sale. But if expired most protection periods only require the seller to pay a commission if you introduced the buyer during the listing period. More than likely seller owes you nothing at this point. At most you could get commission on buyer side if seller is offering it to buyer agents
Q. I have a real-estate question.
A: You need to hire a lawyer to review your contract, no one can say from one sentence without reviewing the docs
Q. I have a real-estate question.
A: Hire a lawyer to review your contract, no one can say on here without the docs
Q. The owner of a property is in default of mortgage payments: can she deed the property to a third person and what are the
A: In theory yes, but third party is buying subject to the mortgage; meaning if 3rd party wants to keep the house he/she would need to pay off the mortgage. Third party and owner should hire a lawyer.
