Asked in Contracts for California

Q: Both parties in separate counties and a signed contract was signed in one of those counties, which would be legal action

 A mortgage delay service was used to delay the trustee sale and a contract was signed in Sacramento County but the delay service is located in Monrova, CA, LA County. If the delay service were to take the customer to court, which county would that be?

The issue is was the delay granted by the delay service or the real estate agent? If the trustee sale was delayed by the real estate agent and NOT the delay service, is the delay service obligated to be paid their fee? And the contract signed states if THEY don't delay, you don't pay.

A: There is probably a term in the contract which dictates. If not it is where the property is or either county where the contract was signed.

The above is not legal advice. It is an illustration of options that can be used in certain situations. I have not examined all of your facts, if I did I might provide a different response.
