Q: A FORECLOSURE NOTICE FOR MY MOTHER IN LAWS HOME, WAS SERVED TO HER NIECE WHO LIVES IN ANOTHER STATE(NY), IS THIS LEGAL?
A FORECLOSURE NOTICE FOR MY MOTHER IN LAWS HOME WAS SERVED TO HER NIECE IN ANOTHER STATE (NY).
MY MOTHER IN LAW SAYS SHE DID NOT RECEIVE ANY SUMMONS IN HER STATE OF NJ. SHE DID RECIEVE A LETTER FROM HER MORTGAGE COMPANY STATING HER REQUEST FORM FOR HER "AT RISK STATUS" WAS UNSIGNED SO SHE WAS DENIED AN AT RISK EXTENSION. SHE IS 81 YEARS OLD WITH HEALTH PROBLEMS AND LIVES ALONE. THE MORTGAGE PEOPLE WILL NOT FAX OR EMAIL ANOTHER FORM FOR HER TO FILL OUT. THEY TOLD HER THAT THEY WOULD MAIL A COPY OF THE FORM TO HER.
IT HAS BEEN 10 DAYS SINCE HER NIECE RECIEVED THE FORECLOSURE SUMMONS. WHAT CAN I ADVISE MY MOTHER IN LAW TO DO. THANK YOU FOR ASSISTANCE IN THIS MATTER.
A: Have your mother-in-law talk to an attorney. Attorneys cannot tell someone to tell someone else how to practice law. If you and she like you can be on the call.
