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?
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.
A brother who has recently passed was staying on property. There is a foreclosure on property due to neglect of paying a county property tax debt. What if any is the easiest way to obtain legal rights to pay off tax debt? And be the executor of property. Thank you.

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.

After an OSC, the court ordered the sale of a residence in October. The homestead granted was $75K.

the an order is already entered, no further order is necessary. the bankruptcy will only delay but not prevent the sale. You have to take the appropriate action in state court to reverse such an order.
It depends on who signed the mortgage note. If you both signed it, the mortgagee can come after either of you if the note isn't paid according to its terms. So if he dies AND the note isn't paid, the mortgagee could foreclose and seek a deficiency judgment against you. But in general,...Read more »
I’m in the business of locating people who are owed these funds. I track them down and inform them of the funds, and offer to connect them with an attorney that will help them recover the money once confirmed.
Usually the mortgagor makes a phone and written claim for the foreclosure surplus funds. If the the mortgagee will not pay, then you have to file suit for conversion, etc. I am not sure of what service you would provide to anyone or how you would get paid.
