My home was foreclosed on. It sits on 5 acres around another 100 that I own free and clear on 3 sides. If I put a cow feed lot on my land to prevent a future sale and possibly buy back my house for cheap, does the lender have any sort of legal avenue to prevent me from "sabotauging" the future sale? The utilities and driveway also run on my other property..... I've been trying to mod the mortgage for 4 years and they wouldn't take any payments, and also multiple bk filings trying to get back on my feet, I am finally back on my feet but not fast enough to get caught back up on the mortgage and prevent the foreclosure sale.Also, the bank ( National Home Loan servicing) bought the property back and has started the eviction process, I am willing to lease the property until I can buy it back. Any advise on how to offer to lease it? Contact the sale trustee? Hire an attorny to facilitate the lease? I have an active Ch 13 Bankrupcy case but the automatic stay didn't go into effect because of previous filings and they continued on with the foreclosure sale. I filed Pro Se with the help of a advisory company that has been helping but I think I need a little more muscle than what they are offering.
Your questions really require the attention of a retained attorney, not a public Q&A forum. Good luck.
This is a general Q&A Forum for discussion purposes only. Anything read here should be considered marginal information at best. It would be foolish to make important decisions based on this information. Real-life legal decisions are important and should not be trusted to the free-flow of thoughts on the internet. If you need assistance, hire a professional who can listen to all of the facts and help you make informed decisions.
Post-foreclosure situations are always the toughest. In theory, you can do anything you want on your 100-acres so long as it doesn't violate any laws (common, statutory, or regulatory). With that being said, nuisance is a law, although it is unlikely anyone would make that claim that wasn't living in the house. You certainly shouldn't go around bragging about your intentions, though. That could cause more problems for you, such as tortious interference.
You may want to hire an attorney to discuss leasing the house, but I'm not sure of the normal post-foreclosure procedures of your lender. Each one of them are a different. Some may lease. Other's don't.
