Well there isn't a quote unquote "statute of limitations" to foreclose. Technically, once you have defaulted under the terms of the contract (i.e. loan), the mortgage company can start the foreclosure proceedings. Of course, they have to go through the legal process, which could take several...Read more »
That is a great question. The answer is that it depends. Really depends on the mortgage company, your income, your credit score, etc. I know that when you file for chapter 7 bankruptcy and wipe out the foreclosure, you can purchase a home after 2 years.
You can try to cure the default by paying the arrears and foreclosure fees. If the grandchild is subject to inheriting the home and actually lives in the home, the grand child can file for chapter 13 bankruptcy to save the home.
Property was left to two grandson and Will has not been probated. Mortgage company will not discussed with me, the daughter, citing Will not probated. Property located in Hayneville AL. BALANCE IS AROUND 24,000. Grandmother died July 18, 2017.
Office. I had to go through some nasty people to be given 3 hours to remove what was left in the home. The home sold for $10,000 more than was owed. The bank refuses to talk to me. What is my recourse?
Is the home in your name or just your deceased husband's? I'm assuming they foreclosed some time ago and filed some sort of ejectment action against you and him because you did not get out of the home immediately. Unfortunately, the time for you to file for chapter 13 bankruptcy and save your...Read more »
No, the bank cannot take the vehicle in the foreclosure. They may file something in court with regards to an abandoned vehicle. But the foreclosure in and of itself will not give them the right to the car.
If the collections account is past the statute of limitations, it's non collectible. Next time they call tell them that pursuant to the Fair Debt Collections Practices Act, they cannot continue to contact you. This is the buzz word.....you say that and POOF!! They will stop calling you....hope...Read more »
My father has accumulated tons of debt over the past 2 years due to poor financial decisions, my mother owns property which is in her name only, she's terrified that she will lose it if my fathers debt collectors decide that they want their money, is it possible for her to lose it?
I recently received notice from a local bank that they have an old judgement against me and my late husband but I do not believe that I owe it and do not recall signing the papers. I have repeatedly requested all documentation supporting the balance and judgement. But they simply ignore me and... Read more »
I would go by the county courthouse in the county that you live or in the county where that bank is located (where you signed the loan/contract) and they can look up the case and whether or not there is a judgment on the case.
Yes, if you owe money to a creditor AND they obtain a judgment they can place it on any and all property you own in your name....this is regardless of whether or not you own it jointly with someone else! If they do not have a judgment, they can't arbitrarily place a lien on the land. Exceptions...Read more »
I have a money judgment against my ex daughter-in-law. She told my son that she will nullify the writ of garnishment because I, as the creditor, did not send her proper notification. I have not contacted her because she takes it out on my son by reducing the time he has with my grandson. It is... Read more »
No, she cannot. As long as you have a writ of garnishment, you can levy her bank accounts and/or garnish her wages. Notice is not required. Just serve her employer or bank. Notice would make it impossible to execute the writ.....they would simply empty out the bank account before you levied...Read more »
