Will I need an attorney to stop the NOD process, or can I deal with the bank directly to bring loan to current? Will my personal home be in jeapordy of sale if I backed up the investment property loan with a personal guarantee?
In Florida, if you receive a Notice of Default (NOD) for a property in New Mexico, the time before an auction varies, often taking several months, as New Mexico uses a judicial foreclosure process. You can directly negotiate with the bank to make the loan current; they often prefer resolving issues...View More

He has been implicated in South Africa and has asked me to pay his bills and send him money through his own bank. Can this have legal ramifications for me and if so how can I keep myself safe or offer safe/legal alternatives to him.
You are right to be concerned about it. Your father's request may or may not have legal ramifications for you, depending on exactly what legal trouble he's in. Also, even if it's not a legal problem for you, you'd likely need a power of attorney executed by your father to...View More
I suspect that the statement they want you to sign is to protect the lender from your later claiming the property as your homestead. If you default and they have to sue you and get a judgment against you, a claim of homestead would make it difficult to levy upon the property in order to collect...View More

This is not the forum where you can type up specific legal questions, and receive free legal advice. As a lawyer, I may provide some direction, however. For instance, why are you asking these questions? Have your accounts been closed? Have the US banks cite to any laws pursuant to which they closed...View More

I'm asking this for my girlfriend (It's a distant relationship, she is from the US and I'm from Germany ) because we need the inheritance money that she got from her father to pay for medical expenses (a lawyer already handled the money, she just needs to open the account).
One option is to execute (sign with formalities) a Power of Attorney giving your girlfriend the power to open an account in your name. It's unclear from your post whether you are currently in Germany. If you are, and the account needs to be opened in Florida, you'd need to have the...View More

I don't know what "dss" means, but in any case, a question on a NC limitations period must be asked of a NC attorney. Since your inquiry is indicated to be from Sebring, Fla., mostly Fla. attorneys (like me) will see your post. Also, legal advice on the filing deadline specific to...View More
So far all the banks I've asked denied financing. I've asked USBank, Bank of America, Regions, Wells F, etc for a loan to help in finding a job, move to a different state, or for personal things and they have all denied. It's a bit surprising because I thought that was the point of a... View More
No, a lawyer cannot sue private institutions to force them to establish you credit. As long as the lenders are not denying you based on a protected class such as race, religion, national origin, sex, or one of the other few protected classes, they are not breaking any laws. Not having a job or a...View More
I have a friend who is currently a jail inmate in Hillsborough County. He asked that I have access to a bank account so he can make legal payments to his new attorney. After some research and discussion with others I found out a power of attorney will be necessary.
1) You can do it. Find a form online, or get help from his attorney, and check with the bank before you get your friend to sign it to see if it will be accepted. The bank may have its own form it prefers.
3) Aren't you going to mail it to him care of the jail?...View More

There are a few distinct issues involved in your inquiry: the recognition of a Brazilian Arbitration Award and the attachment of US Company assets. (In order to answer, I will of course assume all the facts you stated are true unless they are contradictory.)

You have no obligation to pay anything to the mortgage company, merely an obligation to hold the funds you received from the "family member". You should pay those funds to whomever the "family member" tells you to pay. And, by the way, if the "family member"...View More
