  • A judgement of foreclousure was entered (case is pending ) last Monday. On the same day I got a contract(shortsale) price.

    What can I do now. Send contract to bank or nothing can be done now? Please help. Property is in Chicago.. Cook. Thanks

    Jason’s Answer

    Send it to the bank for approval immediately. The judgment just means that they can sell your home at a sheriff's sale, you are not yet at the point of no return. The sheriff's sale should not be for another 90 days. You still have time.

  • "Strike From Case Management Call - Allowed" means what re my Complaint to Foreclose Mortgage?

    On May 12th the last court docket entry was "Strike from Case Management Call - Allowed. I did not attend this court hearing and I don't know what it means.

    All it means is that the case was taken off the "Case Management Call" and
    will proceed to judgment. The Case Management Call is simply a way to make
    sure that plaintiffs are making progress with the lawsuit (that the
    complaint has been served, etc). The fact that the case was stricken from
    the call means that the judge was satisfied with the progress of the case.

    Most likely not. The test is whether you could have had a "reasonable expectation of privacy." In all likelihood, there isn't a judge or jury on earth who will find a reasonable expectation of privacy in texting your married boyfriend.

  • Can a bank foreclose on a home without a genuine copy of the promissory note?

    The note is forged. What defense should be applied in answer... fraud? fraud upon the court? No standing to foreclose?

    Jason’s Answer

    • Selected as best answer

    This is the most used, and least accepted defense that pro se defendants use.. I would not recommend using it unless the note truly was forged. If the note was forged, that should be an affirmative defense. Without passing judgment on your case, if the bank loaned you money and you signed the mortgage, your argument that the note is a forgery will not go very far.

  • Is there a limit as to how many pages an answer to a foreclosure complaint may contain?

    I found briefs, memoranda & oral arguments have 15 page cutoff without prior leave of court. Also, in an answer, can the written format match the same as in the complaint, i.e. single-spaced?

    Jason’s Answer

    There is no page limit, but do not go overboard. Simply admit or deny each allegation, there is no need to get into specifics at this point. You can get creative with your affirmative defenses, if you have any.

    As for the format, I always double space.

  • Im in default with my mortgage. ive been to court once. i go back in march to answer if i want to keep my home.

    of course i do but can not afford my current payment. what happens next? if my home is foreclosed on how long will i have to get out?

    Jason’s Answer

    • Selected as best answer

    If you play your cards right, you can be in your home for at least another year. There are many ways an attorney can help you with this. I would highly recommend NOT filing an answer without the help of an attorney. Also, please see a housing counselor ASAP through the court's mediation program and get a letter from them recommending mediation.
