Yes. You can file your own response to the trustee but you are pretty much protected either way.

If the roofing contractor has properly fixed a lien against the homestead as provided in Chapter 53 of the Texas Property Code, yes the roofer can judicially foreclose on the lien.
From an auction bidder's perspective, do each of these types of real estate tax foreclosure types (for example EOS, EXE, Sale, resale, PLURIES) have the same redemption period?
I'm referring to the auctions from the Tax Code from Chapter 34. TAX SALES AND REDEMPTION, from the... Read more »

If your question is looking for a "redemption" period after a f/c sale. There is none! Once it is sold at foreclosure, it is the property of the buyer, 100% in fee simple. While there may be some other legal issues of the property you buy at a f/c sale, it is a different legal process,... Read more »

If you still have possession of the house/property, you can file in court for an injunction and stop the foreclosure. If you have left, you would have a very hard time getting back possession. Notice is a key part of any foreclosure. This would also be helped if you had the property put through... Read more »

I am not sure what the question is.
If you want to reverse the transaction, you will have to sue, and fast. Fraud usually has a one-year statute of limitations within which you must sue the offending person or company.
Please go see a lawyer ASAP!

The bank likely received an order from the court lifting the automatic stay to proceed with the foreclosure. This is not uncommon and they can do this for various reasons - no equity, no adequate assurance, you haven't been paying the mortgage post petition... etc. Take a look at your... Read more »

It sounds like you are having difficulty paying the mortgage and are trying to avoid foreclosure. A quit claim deed won't help in that situation (it doesn't even convey the land in Texas, and should virtually never be used).
An adverse possession claim is a way of acquiring... Read more »
I recently discovered my single dad, whom has a mortgage, deeded the house to me and his name is no longer on the deed. He is still paying the mortgage. If he defaults on his loan can the bank foreclose on the house, or will any of this ruin my credit in any way? Would he be able to refinance or... Read more »

You have taken title subject to the mortgage. It is his debt as the notemaker, but the real property stands as secured collateral. The lender can always foreclose if the note is not paid or other terms are not met. It is not your debt.

Hire a local probate attorney to file an application for succession.
Are those agencies reputable? I'm her only surviving family member, both our parents are deceased. I find nothing noted in our County's surplus listings, nor state listings. How can I verify if there is actual funds? And, do I need to go through the agency who contacted me, or an attorney?
answered on Dec 24, 2020
This is most likely a scam. If there were surplus funds from any source (even a utility deposit) they would, in good time, be deposited with the state comptroller. They could not be accessed until then.

It appears that you need a competent Texas attorney to conduct a title search. Then with your belated Release, he should be able to discern how to properly clear your Title. The Release probably only affects some of your recorded instruments, and you may need more Releases.
