Douglas Lee Bryan's answer If the bank is attempting to foreclose on your house, you need to get an attorney as soon as possible. Let the lawyer know that what the bank has filed is not a complete copy of the agreement, and they will address that issue for you. if you can't afford an attorney, contact your local Legal Services office.
Peter N. Munsing's answer You haven't given enough information to advise you. However if you were in any way involved do not give any facts on this website or any public website. Contact a criminal defense attorney.
David Alan Wolf's answer You should consult with an attorney. It is odd that the insurance company is cancelling the policy for failure to maintain the building. Typically, policies are challenged by the carrier if there is a misrepresentation or a failure to pay the premium. There may be a way to force the insurance company to cover the claim.
Christie Tournet's answer First, I am very sorry to hear of your circumstances. My condolences to your family during such a difficult time.

Douglas Lee Bryan's answer A lawyer has the right to charge what is a fair fee. If he promises a full refund, however, you have the right to enforce that promise.

Good luck.
Robert Martin Louque Jr's answer I am not sure if Louisiana law requires it but I am willing to bet the rental car agency requires it as a condition of renting their $15,000+ vehicles, in case you wreck it. Most people do not have $15,000+ lying around and the rental car agency is within its rights to protect itself and its investments.
Robert Martin Louque Jr's answer I am assuming you do not have a license as a vehicle storage facility nor a business license so no they do not owe you storage fees, especially if this is your vehicle they are repossessing.
Samuel John Ford's answer You likely can still dispute the bill and may have defenses to collection of the alleged debt. If you are being contacted by debt collectors, there are federal and state laws that provide dispute rights and protection from unfair collection practices.
I recommend speaking to a Louisiana consumer attorney regarding the details of your situation so you can fully understand your rights.
