    Reese’s Answer

    An attorney would need to review the foreclosure notices to advise you what to do. I recommend that you consult with a local real estate attorney ASAP as your redemption period may expire if you do not.

    I have a written agreement that he sign he owes me 20k. Wen I go to court am I going to win easy becouse I have a written agreement that he signd? Please answer team thank

    Reese’s Answer

    You might "win easy", but it's hard to say what defenses the defendant might raise. Questions to ask yourself:

    1) how much will it cost to win the case?

    2) if you win, can the defendant actually pay you?
