    Run, do not walk, to a criminal defense attorney in West Pasco County. Get a consultation and ask these questions. This is a bad forum in a case like this.

  • Am I responsible for foreclosure attorney fees after chapter 7 bankruptcy?

    The condo was included in the bankruptcy, and it was over 2 years ago. The foreclosure process has now ended and I am being ordered to pay for the plaintiff's attorney fees. This was agreed to in my mortgage, but I didn't have a foreclosure attorn...

    Christopher’s Answer

    Attorneys fees may be ordered in the foreclosure judgment, but the bank, and or whatever party that the judgment is assigned to shouldn't be able to collect any actual money because it was likely discharged. Have an attorney look at your bankruptcy case as well as the order you are talking about and you should have a more clear picture. If they are actively trying to collect, Attorney Golant is right, and your BK attorney should look for violations of the discharge and maybe debt collection violations. Best of luck to you,

  • I have retained a bankruptcy attorney but wont file till 2015 Can I put him on hold if I try to negotiate settlements on my own

    Christopher’s Answer

    Really a question for your bankruptcy counsel. He may be able to help you in the debt settlement instead. Whether you can put him on hold and then re-up his services later, if your debt settlement fails is really dependent on your contract with him. Talk to him. You've stated that you did a short sale and a deed in lieu, those are usually exclusive of each other- so this tells me there are certainly several issues you should figure out before moving forward on your own with the debt settlement.

  • Which is the appropriate route to take in this situation? I hold a mortgage on a property I sold in 2006.

    The borrow defaulted on the loan and abandoned the property in 2008. I've been in possession of the property ever since. I've been weighing my options to go through the entire foreclosure process or have the borrower sign either a Quit Claim D...

    Christopher’s Answer

    If the house has decent value in relation to the amount owed, and the debtor is willing to sign a deed in lieu, you may be better off going that route. It will be easier on everyone, including the debtor. Courts in Tampa Bay are clogged with foreclosures, and although it is running much more smooth than it had in previous years, you will need to invest a lot of time and money into the foreclosure process.

  • Foreclouse meaning: 07/21/2014 40 NOTICE OF ISSUE AND REQUEST TO DOCKET Comments: by Gmac Mortgage LLC.,10mins no env

    I am trying to figure out what is happening with my foreclosure case here: The bank tried to take the house earlier this year but the city answered the summons with defend. I am wondering if they are trying to finally get the house back: here are...

    Christopher’s Answer

    GMAC is telling the Court that the case is ready for trial and requesting a trial date. They are advising that they estimate it will be a 10 minute trial and that it is a non- jury trial. It appears they also did not provide the court with envelopes. If you are on the Note and Mortgage, you may want to look into hiring a foreclosure defense attorney to try to negotiate your liability away and/ or make the bank actually prove that they are entitled to foreclosure and a sale of the house.

    Good luck,

  • Can I sell a house in Florida after an order of default?

    Defaulted mortgage is 300 but home value is 500 (miami beach condo) Realtor says I can sell and keep the difference even if there is an order of default.

    Christopher’s Answer

    You can sell it any time before it is sold at a foreclosure Auction. Even if there is a Default or a Default judgment entered. And you can keep all proceeds over and above what the pay off of the mortgage is- assuming there are no other liens to satisfy.

    Christopher’s Answer

    Sit down with a local attorney to look at your judgment and sentence- you may have to pay him or her for that hour or so, but it will be worth it. There are many attorneys in Citrus- Hernando-Pasco that are capable. Feel free to call my office and set something up as well.

    Best of luck.
