Hoping someone can help me understand how I can help my mother. Mother has two parcels of property. Parcel 1 is property paid off and clear. Parcel 2 has home and paid through bank loan. County bought parcel 1, judge released funds on parcel 1 to mother/attorney. Attorney would not release funds,trying to get her to pay off parcel 2. No documents from bank requiring that as she still lives on parcel 2. No orders/motions from bank asking for payment from parcel 1. I cannot understand why the attorney would hold the money w/stip to pay off parcel 2. What reason could there be to refuse her money when funds have been released by the judge & sent to atty (his name and my mothers name). My mother completely confused, seen emails from the attorney with mother asking for an explanation/ help understanding. They send her calls to vm and attorney send her a letter stating he is withdrawing as her attorney and returning funds to the court. The attorney did already motion for an appeal. felt she could get more. Something about her questioning this caused him to withdraw/return funds. Court clerk said that has never happened. Something seems really off to me. What am I missing here?
You and your mother should be speaking with the attorney ...it may make sense....or not....but there is no way to tell from here.
