  • If my home got foreclosed on and sold is there anyway to still keep it

    Uea garnished my wages and it was modified

    Robinson’s Answer

    Beyond your question, does your post indicate that they garnished your wages AND your loan had been modified prior to foreclosure? Were you up to date on your modified payments? (if so, you have a serious potential lawsuit).

    Generally, if they foreclose, it doesn't necessarily mean that it has been sold. Often, the bank will purchase its own mortgage. If so, there may be a way to keep your house.

    Consult with an attorney asap. As you don't have much time to put things in order to stop any additional damage... or from this house being transferred beyond your ability to possibly retain it.

  • Can a court case be dismissed or transferred to another state if defendant is moving after court date?

    Am being sued by Capital One Bank for default on credit card at District Court in Maryland. I will be moving to another State after the Trial Date. Can I ask for the case to be dismissed in Maryland? Do I have to show up in Court in MD? Will Capit...

    Robinson’s Answer

    Once they have proper jurisdiction over you (as they do now), you cannot "dodge" the lawsuit by moving... or else one would continuously move to avoid trial. Have they called you or your family/friends in any way? Has there been any harassing or abusive action to collect? When did you make the last payment?

    Robinson’s Answer

    I agree with Mr. Welch, the Maryland Statute specifically excludes an expungement in this case and I believe it is also delineated in the expungement form itself.

    Do not acknowledge any information about your facts in a public forum. Collect all proof that you have (documentation about hiring, emails exchanged, checks received), and consult with an attorney - to develop you defense.

  • How would a judge view community service done BEFORE my court date?

    I was cited for an alleged shoplifting incident (I don't wish to discuss the specifics without first consulting with a lawyer). But I will say that I am 23 with a spotless record. The police officer on the scene made light of the situation sayi...

    Robinson’s Answer

    As many others have stated, DO NOT PERFORM THE SERVICE ahead of time. A lawyer can be vital to your interests here. First, you need the agreement with the prosecutor, or you've just done community service for no reason. Second, the SAO does not like to deal with Community Service outside of its current programs. Third, you may not have to do anything at all and still have your record expunged.

  • What is my next step for communicating with HOA & preventing them from assessing late fees and sending my acct. to collection?

    Sent the HOA a letter stating that I was no longer going to pay HOA fees and put the fees in escrow until they enforce the by-laws (someone was bringing their dog to poop on my property & the sales ppl coming to the door). They sent back a letter...

    This a huge losing battle, and you will probably end up paying for it in the end. Be very careful. The HOA should have a board, and it is up to those members of the elected board to enforce rules. You're complaint needs to be dealt with by the board. The elected members are typically held-harmless. So you either have to join the board to make this change, or vote for members who have your interests in mind.

  • Is there a statute of limitation on a payday loan in Maryland? can they come back after a debt from 2006?

    i recieved a call requesting payment form a loan I don't remember and I cannot get bank reciepts because the are no lnger on file? Can you give any advise? Thx.

    Robinson’s Answer

    The most important issue you may have is that payday lenders in Maryland rarely comply with the payday filing requirements. They may not have a legitimate claim to begin with.

    That said, the Statute of Limitations does expire in three years, but that is a general rule. The 3yr limit can be extended (tolled) if you make any payment or acknowledgement of debt. When was the last time you, or anyone representing you, spoke with the payday lender/collector?

  • If I owe my attorney fees but the other party was put in a judgement that they owed the majority of my fees, can the attorney

    Can my attorney try to get money paid from me from a judgement entered against the opposing party in the case for fees owed?

    Robinson’s Answer

    You have to pay your attorney any fees due. Because of the judgment, you are entitled to be reimbursed for any fees paid by you. Read your judgment award carefully. If it indicates "reasonable" fees, you will still have to determine what is included in this award. Hopefully, you have a specific amount awarded in the judgment.

  • Do we have to continue paying homeowner's fee and water bill on a house that is being foreclosed? Can Wells Fargo finish?

    Wells Fargo advised us that they intended to foreclose in 2010. We declared bankruptcy and moved. We have been threatened by lawyers for the homeowners organization that we still had to pay the HOA fee, so we did. The water company says we stil...

    • Selected as best answer

    Short Answer: After bankruptcy discharge, you are still responsible for the HOA fees (accrued after filing bankruptcy) because that is a new debt. If you continued using the water, any water bill is also a new debt incurred after filing bankruptcy so you will have to pay that as well.

    Long Answer: If you are letting this house go anyway, these problems are often manageable through a shortsale process, where you can often end up receiving money to sell the house. If your name is still on title, you should consult an attorney about a possible shortsale. Depending on the type of loan you have, there is often a sizeable chunk of money available to homeowners in your situation.
