Legal Answers
454 Questions Answered

Q. Does a final judgement amount include all liens on a short sale/ foreclosure?
A: no just the amount of the one lien suing.
Q. Can i be forced into foreclosure if no note or non payment has been filled thru the court?
A: The mortgage is recorded as its the lien on the property; the note does not need to be recorded. If you are behind on payments the agreement says what happens; but there is no minimum amount needed to foreclose and it will cost you many many times $300 just to hire a lawyer to defend it so better to pay the money ASAP.
Q. If a short sale property is listed at $169,000 but has a final judgement amount of $295,000, how much would you pay?
A: Short sales work the same everywhere. You find a property and make an offer to the bank who will tell you what price they are looking for (based on net funds to bank) and you can counter or match that. There is no formula what % they will take.
Q. I want to purchase my own Home Owner ins. can i be force to accept the Escrow acct set by my mortgage co?
A: Generally, if the mortgage you signed says that, which is common especially upon lapse, then yes.
Q. Can my real estate agent sell me a property he may own/affiliated with llc which owned property previously? Legal?
A: I dont see why it's an ethical issue to own an interest in real estate and then sell it to you. I assume the only ethical issue would be making disclosure to you of such interest in the LLC; if it is true. If agent is not on sunbiz for the company as an officer of the company, you will have a tough time proving that. If agent was merely an agent for the LLC previously there really is not conflict.
Q. I have leased a property over the last 4 years, my lease ends 9/30/18. After several weeks and attempts to contact
A: None other than to be out by out by Sept 30th if no new lease was signed. Landlord cannot possibly honor the lease after losing the property at auction in October anyway
Q. What is the aprox time and cost to resolve 10 plus years on unfiled taxes , do I need a lawyer or a CPA ?
A: CPA do taxes.
Q. can a family member participate in a short sale?
A: Generally no. You sign a federal law "arm's length affidavit" that you are not selling to a related person.
Q. Update. Manager said they have 30 days to provide us w/a written response after we faxed PROOF of pymnts. Is that legal
A: Yes its a huge corporation moving around millions of dollars, they can't just go look at the register like local mom and pop shop. 30 days is also the reply timely to verify a debt per the FDCPA. Best tip is simply pay what is due to bring the account current RATHER than paying a lawyer. It's only 2 months, not 20 here. At WORST you have credits on your mortgage and paid it down by 2 payments. But if you let it get too far behind interest and late fees will pile on. Simply pay the amount due today and THEN argue about it when you are not in danger of foreclosure.
