Explain the term "Removing Legal cloud from Title"

Harvey, IL |
Filed under: Foreclosure

My property went into forclosure in 2009. Lender dismissed the forclosure in 2012, but sent it to a collection agency. I was refused a modification because I didnt have enough income. I am still in the property.

  1. Removing a cloud from title means to remove negative notation to title. This might be removal of a lien but a dismissed foreclosure will not be a cloud to title.


  2. A fraudulent mortgage recorded on the property can, with the proper proofs, be removed from the chain of title.
