No, you have to pay the interest, attorneys' fees and costs. These are provided for by Florida law. If you cannot afford to pay in full you should 1) ask the law firm representing the HOA if the HOA will consider a payment plan or 2) consult with a bankruptcy attorney to see if you qualify...Read more »

Wills do not get filed in Florida until the person passes away. This is why what the will says today is not relevant since it can be changed at any time prior to the person passing away. Once a person dies and their will is deposited with the clerk it is public record and you can get a copy from...Read more »
If a foreclosure is called off for some reason, and it appears that such is the case with you, the mortgagee (the mortgage company) rightfully wants to have possession of the original mortgage and note. It will need them if your modified mortgage goes into default and must be foreclosed again. So...Read more »
If you think you want to do this yourself, be aware that foreclosure is complicated; and since prevailing party attorney fees are normally awarded, it would be best to at least search for an attorney to do it for you. If you insist on doing it yourself, I suggest that you look at other foreclosure...Read more »

A debt collection lawyer has sent me a paper in regards to the mortgage debt trying to claim me to it and this property is in ohio where he lived and I live in... Read more »
You should ask in Justia > Ask a Lawyer > Ohio, but if Ohio mortgage law is anything like most places, simply ignore the paper you received; the mortgage company can't get a personal judgment against you, the best it can hope for is a judgment giving them the right to sell the property.

Last November my dad passed away. His only "asset" in Florida was a promissory note and mortgage he did to my brother on 2008 to help him buy a house. My brother is the mortgagor and my dad the mortgagee. We have initiated the probate process. My brother never made a single payment on... Read more »
Yes, the estate can probably foreclose the mortgage. Each failure to make a payment would be a default, so a failure to pay 4 years and 11 months ago would be a default not barred by the statute of limitations.
My dad passed away and we have started the probate process. The only "asset" my dad had was a mortgage made out to my brother. My brother never made a single payment. Now he says he has an affidavit signed by my dad a year before he died statting that my brother paid the mortgage and... Read more »

Was facing foreclosure TWICE with them now and because of their errors, looks as if I will face it again! Can not avoid all their ""fees" added to everything after they say they were removed etc.. its crazy
It appears from your question that you are a pro se DIY foreclosure "specialist". You need the lawyer you should have hired at the outset: a lawyer who does foreclosures, creditors rights and bankruptcy.
You need to visit with a foreclosure defense/bankruptcy lawyer TODAY. From you question I cannot understand if your home mortgage is in foreclosure, or you are being sued on a student loan. In either case, run, do not walk to a good bankruptcy lawyer in your community.
