    Its possible that you have something that is marketable. There are secondary markets for such things a tax liens, contracts, loans and judgments. Its unclear from your question exactly what you have to sell. They are many types of liens relating to property. They usually accompany a some obligation (contract) to pay money, eg. promissory notes, contracts for goods or services. Are you selling the contractual rights to collect plus whatever collateral you might have to secure the...

    Couple points about renovation quotes / contracts; 1) they all tend to be unique and 2) the final contract is often never fully negotiated until the job is done. Its important to keep a thorough written record of communications, material selections, etc... Disputes often arise over allowances - how much labor and materials is included or extra. Let me give you a few points to consider. You say the contractor was to provide down lights because they are shown in the design. What about the...

    I would start by getting a few more facts. Do two things first; 1) Call your title company and ask them to determine if a lien is now actually recorded against your property and 2) Call your builder and ask for more details. I don't know the circumstances about how / when your home was built or how payments were made to pay for the construction. If you had a construction loan and draws were administered by your bank and/or a qualified disbursing agent, then call them to resolve this. If,...

    Your question can not be answered without a much more detailed summary of your specific circumstances. However, let me provide some general statements about deed-in-lieus. First, your borrower must agree to transfer ownership. Second, you must review the title to the property very carefully. If you acquire the property via a deed from your borrower, you own it subject to every lien your borrower may have allowed to be recorded after your mortgage in connection with other debts, second...

    You've given limited facts about your specific contract. Let me add a few things to what the other lawyers advised. Many people may ask to see a copy of a contract you have with someone else. They may or may not have a right to see it. Also, you may have certain restrictions in the contract which limit or prohibit your disclosure of confidential information which may be inside.

    A bankruptcy filing imposes an immediate stay to all proceeding against the owner, which may include completing the foreclosure sale and issuing the certificate of title you are looking for. You might be able to seek a return of whatever monies you paid to acquire the property or you might eventually be able complete the sale. You are best advised to retain a lawyer to review all the facts and protect whatever interests you now have from the foreclosure auction and if necessary, to file the...

    The bankruptcy of your contractor might impact your loan closing to the extent that your title company may require additional documentation before issuing a policy insuring over possible claims the contractor may have against the property in bankruptcy. Talk to your title company and ask your lender exactly what additional items they might require to close. There is a whole new legal process for you to complete BEFORE you can try to collect from a bankrupt company. To start with, your $...

    You've got a complicated situation to try to negotiate with multiple creditors and your landlord on a property worth significantly less than all the outstanding mortgages. You're best bet would be to bid at the foreclosure and allow the legal forelcosure process to clear these junior liens. Whatever you do, make sure you understand fully the status of title to the property at the point you would acquire it.

    You should have three immediate concerns; 1) determine the status of the foreclosure. Did the bank just file the lawsuit, has it been on-hold waiting to complete the short sale, is the bank close to scheduling an auction sale date. There may be filing requirements, motions or hearing where you need to be represented, 2) what's the status of your prospective buyer? Are you still in-contract subject to lender approval, would the buyer still be willing to stay / return to contract and wait a...

    Its sounds like you and / or brothers were sued over the sale of some property all of you own. Your first priority should be to consult with a lawyer to protect and preserve your rights in this case. If you don't, you could risk a money judgment and you could lose the property regardless of what you think is right or wrong.
