  • Foreclosure docs state single family when it is a 3 unit. can this be a legal glitch?

    There is a sale date should i challenge

    Troy’s Answer

    If there is already a sale date, chances are slim you will prevail. You haven't really given enough information to give you a proper answer. First, if you have not yet entered an appearance, then you might be able (depending on the jurisdiction) to hire an attorney to file an appearance and a motion for leave to answer out of time, and to stay sale pending the same. Then that attorney could file a rule 615 motion to dismiss plaintiff's claim (which would cite that the complaint is deficient on its face based on the fact that it mis-states the nature of the property), at which time, plaintiff would have to re-file the complaint and start all over again. AGAIN... YOU HAVE NOT GIVEN ENOUGH INFORMATION for a comprehensive matter.

    I would suggest that you contact a Foreclosure Defense Attorney and bring all documentation you have. You most likely won't prevail on the case ultimately, but you might be able to buy some time to put your affairs in order before having to move.

    Although counter-intuitive, all real-estate agents technically represent the buyer. In most states, even the listing agent technically represents the buyer. However, if you signed a "broker agreement" with the agent, then she would owe a fiduciary duty to you.

    Please be advised that the laws differ from state to state, so it would benefit you to locate a local real estate attorney on AVVO... Many offer free consultations.
