The dispute you describe sounds like it met an impasse between your assertion for a new foundation and the insurance carrier's position. One option may be to reach out to Louisiana attorneys to determine...Read more »
Maybe----I assume that you have associated paperwork when you provided the deposit. The paperwork probably details the conditions and how you can receive a full return of your deposit. If paperwork is confusing, then contact an attorney to review it for you and represent you.

If the judgment is over 10 years old and was not reinscribed then you can file an affidavit with the clerks office to have the judgment cancelled. Our office handles residential closings and have handled similar issues with no problem.
