    Matthew’s Answer

    You potentially have significant claims for breach of duties of loyalty, good faith and fair dealing, as well as conversion related claims. The biggest question will probably be determining the value of your claims, and of course collectability is always a wildcard. If you'd like to chat, let me know as I regularly handle matters in Modesto.

    Matthew’s Answer

    I agree with Mr. Sette. Do NOT speak with the insurance company. The injuries are significant, and you should hire a competent attorney immediately!

  • If I homestead my house will that prevent/slow a foreclosure ?

    I owe 150 k and the property is worth about 100k. There is about 500 in equity from the second LOC.

    Matthew’s Answer

    A homestead does not slow a foreclosure.

    Your question however is a little confusing. If you owe $150K on the first, and the property is worth $100K, then there would be no "equity" in the property. Do you mean that you owe $500K on the LOC?

    If you are that far upside down, you may want to seriously consider a bankruptcy. It would very likely stall the foreclosure, and discharge any potential debt on the 2nd. If you'd like to talk, let me know.

    Matthew’s Answer

    I apologize if this sounds curt and self-serving, but "get a lawyer!" You shouldn't be making business decisions with over $600,000 at stake based on a blog.

    I'd be happy to speak with you, as would a dozen other lawyers on this site. Please take advantage of someone's offer, and get proper formal counseling.

  • After a foreclosure, am i liable for the 2nd mortgage. What can they do to me legally.

    The 1st was $174,000. and the 2nd $32,000. The company holding the 2nd told me that would report me to the IRS for wage garnishment.

    Matthew’s Answer

    Generally speaking, you are liable for the 2nd Deed of trust. An exception applies if it was purchase money (part of the original purchase). If you'd like to chat about options, let me know.
