1026 Closing Disclosure document asks the question "if your lender forecloses on this property and the foreclosure does not cover the amount of the unpaid balance on this loan, A. state law protects you from liability for the unpaid balance unless you refinance or take on any additional debt,...

That closing document has no legal effect. If you sign the Note, then you can be sued for the money owed, or after foreclosure, get sued for the deficiency. If sued, you might use the disclosure as a defense, but it is not going to work.
Read the recorded Deed of Trust, and a copy of the Note if available. Usually acceleration occurs, then default. Then three foreclosure notices in the paper before the Courthouse door sale. Usually anywhere from 45 days to 4 months.
Recently got a Tenncare request for release form and had fill out along with sent a death certificate by email for my mother that passed in nursing home with Tenncare Choices. They emailed me back since I am a disabled that they assert my estate when I pass. They will not let me know how much my... View More
You can try to get the lender to accept your payments on the note. Otherwise they will foreclose. If you are on the title, it will be difficult for the lender to remove you from possession. In that event hire a good lawyer to fight the Detainer.
We are also seeking loss mitigation but in the event that fails, I want to be sure that our right to redemption legal protections will apply. I have looked over the HELOC contract and I haven't seen a waiver in regards to our right to redemption protections. Thank you so much for reading this.
You will need an attorney to search the title and read the terms of all security instruments. Most likely you waived any redemption rights when you got a loan. Even if you did not, you will need to be ready to exercise such a redemption or it will be waived.
No notice of foreclosure new mortgage company just sent foreclosure papers we had that stopped now we go to court tomorrow for the foreclosure and the house has already been sold without us knowing got no papers or anything found out from my niece will we have time to get out after we go to court...

It sounds like it was foreclosed earlier and now you are in Sessions Court on a Detainer. Judge will give possession to the new owner and you will get 10 days to get out. Otherwise a Writ of Possession might be executed by the Sheriff. The foreclosure may have not been conducted correctly,...View More
After the Foreclosure the new owner will probably start taking possession. Those tenants get a free ride for awhile but will need to be looking for a new place. They can contact the lender directly and attempt to arrange a month to month lease, but I do not recommend it.
Home owner passed in summer of 2022. Orginal mortgage sold loan after notification of death. Executor didn't get appointed until 9 months later. New mortgage company was unknown. No bill sent. Orginal Mortgage company would not divulge loan company. New company sent 7 months of bills at once... View More
If actual payment in full was tendered to the creditor and refused, then arguably it was waived. And a suit to enjoin the foreclosure should have been filed with a bond being posted. Title has merged now, but it might be the basis of a cheaper, but harder, Chancery suit for wrongful foreclosure...View More
Working with lender and their foreclosure lawyer for loan modification or reinstatement when it was sold. Lender bought it back at sale but since a VA loan, the Secretary of VA took it before I could get cash together to pay reinstatement. Realtor apparently works for VRM, the current contractor...

It sounds like a Foreclosure has occurred, but you might hire an attorney to look into it. Until you are served or posted with a Detainer Warrant, the owner has done nothing to obtain possession. Suit must be filed, served and heard by the Court. Then you will have 10 days to leave after...View More
You might want an attorney to work out a compromise, so that no note deficiency is outstanding. The threat of Chapter 7 Bankruptcy might give you leverage. Also you might record and serve a Notice of Exempt Property.
Will has no effect until testator is dead and the Will is Probated. It can always be changed or the property disposed of prior to death. Apparently you had no rights except possession, which apparently you did not exercise.
Not at all unless your foreclosed Deed of Trust has such a term, which is almost never. New owner may have to file a Detainer Warrant against you, serve/post it, get a Judgment for Possession, then have a Writ executed by the Sheriff if you do not get out in 10 days from Judgment. Usually takes...View More

Tennessee law provides a right to reinstate and cure default before sale. You may be hitting a roadblock in that the bank is playing games by not recognizing the Power of Attorney, such that you may need to make a motion and bring the reinstatement before a judge.
My father-in-law has recently started showing signs of dementia, and the family is in the process of having him diagnosed. Apparently, his cognitive deficit has been going on much longer than we suspected. His homeowner's insurance policy lapsed, and the lender foreclosed and sold the home. No... View More
This happens alot and dementia is not a defense to a Trustee's Sale. Hire a competent attorney to search the Title and see if there was a Surplus. Setting aside the Sale for even irregularities is probably moot; it needs to be enjoined prior to the Sale.
The property was purchased on the greenbelt in the 90’s, last year while cutting timber on said property, police showed up and told me I need to stop cutting because I didn’t own the property. Apparently 7 years ago the property was taken off of the greenbelt clause making me delinquent on the... View More
There is a lot more to this than simply getting notice of Delinquent Taxes. Hire a competent attorney to search the Title. The Redemption period is probably past, but the alleged owner may only have a Bill of Sale, not a Deed. An Ejectment Action may be possible. The legal description should...View More
