Before Covid, a case the Court would have struck this old. You need to check with the Clerk of Court to see if the case is still active. If you bring it to the attention of the Clerk of Court, the case may get struck.
If the case is struck, that does not mean that the issue is over. The...Read more »
The devil is in the details, of course, but as a general rule, yes, a lender may foreclose its lien without having to go through probate court. The promissory note may no longer be enforceable against the decedent’s estate, depending on the statute of limitation for claims of decedents in your...Read more »
A South Carolina attorney could best advise, but your post remains open for five weeks. It's possible something inadvertently got left off in uploading your post - a case is not mentioned. Not every question is picked up, but you could try reposting, including the name of the case. Good luck...Read more »
If you are the person entitled to the surplus funds you must contact the Court or have an attorney do so on your behalf. A person that has your power of attorney is not going to be able to do this on your behalf.
My parents died intestate with their home in foreclosure status. I have been told I am not responsible for the loan itself, however, I was served with an Owner for Joiner as Defendant because I am listed on the deed. When I went to inquire about purchasing my home, this came back against me. Is... Read more »
Unless South Carolina is different from other states the deed was created on the day you closed on the purchase. There is no specific time-period for the lender to send you the deed. Call the local county clerk's office and ask if they can help you find a copy of the new deed in their official...Read more »
The real issue is whether you are on the note or guaranteed the loan. If you did agree to be liable for the debt, then, you would be liable. Usually, if a spouse is not on the mortgage they are not on the note or otherwise guaranteed the loan.
Of course, in any foreclosure, the lender...Read more »
Yes, lender sent me a letter on 25th of February that I was in default for past due paymens and to call them about reinstate amount. I knew what I was past due so I sent a check for 6,437 06 and mailed in on February 28th. I figured once got payment they would send me another letter letting me... Read more »
First, since your check never cleared it would appear that the check was not received. Simply putting a check in the mail is not enough when you are behind this much on your mortgage. You needed to call the lender and make sure that money was received. You also needed to make sure that you sent...Read more »
A letter for non-judicial judgement. It says, Notice of default and intent to sell. I need to know what my options are if I can’t pay. It says I am not subject to deficiency, but I need to know what actually happens if foreclosure happens. Do I still owe?
Your question is unclear about the status of the foreclosure. If the property has been sold at a foreclosure sale and the lender has purchased the property, the lender can agree to any terms it wishes to accept. On the other hand, if the property is going to be sold at foreclosure sale, the...Read more »
The foreclosure is a collection activity on the debt he owes (the mortgage), so filing a bankruptcy case will PAUSE the foreclosure, but not necessarily stop it. The bank cannot collect a debt from someone while they are in bankruptcy (this is called the automatic stay). However, the stay is...Read more »
I believe that this would be possible. I don't have much info here, so I will say that if you have an attorney, I would recommend that you show him or her this article: https://www.targheelaw.com/article
It's something I wrote for attorneys to better understand options when it...Read more »
If you are the heir and now the owner, the bank has to allow you to bring the loan current. You will also be responsible for all reasonable costs and expenses incurred by the lender. Once the sale is held, you will no longer be able to do this. Also, be sure that they amount owed does not make...Read more »
Tenants have certain rights under SC Law. A tenant is supposed to be given notice of the foreclosure proceedings. It is likely that mail was sent to the property address with the name tenant on it. You should contact the Master in Equity for the County that that property is located in who will...Read more »
The mortgage was gotten about 20 years ago. He passed away 7 years ago and I continued to live in the house for 2 years before allowing someone to move in and take over the payments. The company never allowed me to put the mortgage in my name and the person has since defaulted on the payments and... Read more »
The issue is whether you were liable for the repayment of the money. This is done in most instances by a separate note so that a lender can go after someone, even if the property becomes worthless. Simply inheriting the interest of your deceased spouse does not make you liable for repayment of...Read more »
They have to foreclose on the ESTATE, but their lien is not 'invalid' simply because of the death of the debtor. If the heirs believe there is value to the asset, then they need to take steps to protect the property including paying the debt!
