For example they get evicted in March. The company that controls the mortgage evicts them, cleans up and refurbishes the house for sale. Is it possible for the person who was evicted to make an offer several months later to repurchase the house? Would they have to pay the mortgage payments they... View More
When my mother died in 2019, I unwittingly inherited a $100K Wells Fargo home equity loan from 2011 that it's my understanding was never paid back, either by her or by my late father. She had been claiming to pay off the loan using my SSI funds, and only in 2022 did I find out that was not... View More
While an estate can owe funds for debt of a decedent which can be deducted from the distribution of their assets, you would not be liable on a loan you did not sign (in other words, you cannot “inherit” a loan). You can, however, inherit real estate and that real estate may be encumbered by a...View More

I need to look at the case. It depends how the stip to withdraw was worded. there is caselaw that suggests that since the loan was accelerated, then once the matter is withdrawn or dismissed, he statute of limitation applies.
Your question presents a complicated factual scenario; it is unclear for example, when the case you are asking about was filed. You indicate that the second case was filed in 2011, but also that a lis pendens was filed in 2016. Was that LP filed in connection with a third case? Statutes of...View More
I spoke to an attorney a few years back who advised if I wanted to pursue the property I should be prepared to spend thousands & thousands of dollars which I'm not prepared to do. My question is do I just wait for everything to play out and be contacted by the courts on the outcome.... View More
If the property is in foreclosure and you have an interest in the property (not clear from your fact pattern, since you said your mother's husband owned the property) you most certainly do not want to wait to see how everything plays out.
The court will only contact you for things...View More
In the absence of an unusual circumstance such as where there has been a guardian appointed to represent the best interests of the principal, an attorney cannot represent someone without the principal's knowledge and consent to do so.
I don’t know where you are seeing that, but it would mean that it was purchased by the lender at the auction rather than by a third-party buyer. Because the lender can bid with credit (i.e. the amount they are owed), it is most common that the lender takes title at the sale auction.
If you did not sign a note, you would not be personally liable. However, if the note is secured by a mortgage, the ownership interest of whoever executed the mortgage would be encumbered by the mortgage lien.
Based on the facts you indicated, your mother’s share would be subject to the...View More

I personally would not opine on the fees and fee structure of an attorney your are considering to represent you, especially in a legal Q&A forum like this where we would not have all of the facts surrounding your case and the firm. If you are not comfortable with the fees, you could speak to...View More
After your default for 120 days, your lender or the lender's servicer may elect to send you a default notice or a letter of acceleration. Accelerating the loan means that they are calling it as fully due and payable now instead of over the regular loan term. They may also send you a 90-day...View More

If the state court issued a judgment of foreclosure, even if you believe that the note and mortgage were somehow void, your remedy would be to challenge that judgment in that court with a motion to reargue or an appeal to the higher state court. If you try to collaterally attack it in a bankruptcy...View More
