With the current pandemic, if your loan is an FHA or FNMA loan, there is an adjournment of foreclosures for 60 days right now.

You are right to be scared. Do not do this without the assistance of an attorney. In addition, do not do this without the assurance of title insurance. An attorney or a title insurance company can tell you what steps will be required in order for you to obtain clear title in your particular case.
Foreclosure notice on the door do we have to pay rent? Is it a fraudulent lease since he didn’t tell us the house was in foreclosure? And is it true that the law change that you only have to pay one month security?
In 35 years of practice, I've never seen this issue. Interesting. Plainly, you need to file some equivalent action to a Quiet Title action, and you'd probably name that a Complaint for Declaratory Judgment. But, I'd need to hit the library as to how to clear title to a residential trailer. I though...Read more »
