The management company has the right to charge for any work that it does, and that includes answering a foreclosure motion. HOwever, truth be told, if your house is really in foreclosure and you are going to lose it, there is not much they can do if you don't pay it. I never suggest that you jeapordize the association by not paying your fees, but this is an additional charge that is not part of the budget, and is probably between you and the management company, not you and the association.... more
Wow! What a disaster... sounds like you didn't have an attorney representing you in your divorce or he would have required your ex-wife to get you off of the mortgage by selling or refinancing.
You absolutely need competent legal representation to reverse everything. Hopefully you will be able to get your military clearance back. Your attorney can help with getting the Deed in Lieu accepted by WF.
Contact the Florida Bar Association and they may be able to find an attorney to work on your behalf pro bono (free).
Wish you the best of luck in this difficult situation.... more
Start contacting every REO (foreclosure) listing agent in town. A lot of them will ignore you at first because they're likely extremely busy, but keep letting them know you're around and when their current guy gets sick or drops the ball you'll get your shot. Also, google bank lists or asset mgr lists and hit up all of those folks. A lot of them are tech based and you'll likely need to register on their websites. Price low to get the business and raise prices over time always seems to work. As you get busy you can start to demand a little more money. Good Luck!... more
Sorry I haven't been to this blog in a while but to answer your question, Villa San Marco is probably one of the best kept secrets in St. Augustine. The Physical Therapy school is about a mile away and the students make up about 70-80% of the tenants. My 2-bed - 2-bath gets $900/month. The units sell quickly so you have to stay alert.
The foreclosure debacle is messing things up but if you are looking to invest be patient. Call Janaye Lowe of Century 21 St. Augustine Properties for an honest, sincere and hardworking agent if you need ssistance at (904) 806-2115.
Typically in Florida the lenders foreclose by judicial foreclosure. Was there a Lis Pendis filed in the courts? If so, then at the time the lender foreclosed through the courts they obtained a judgment against you. With this judgment they have some remedies for the money they are owed from you.
Here is a list of things that they can do.
Place liens on assets you have
Place a lien on your name if you have no assets.
What can you do?
You can negotiate a settlement with the lender or collection agency
You can file a bk if you qualify to shake the debt
There is a statue of limitations in your state. I think it's 5-7 years, check with the courts. Many folks laugh at the fact that their is a deficiency judgment against them because they say they have no assets. Once the creditor begins to garnish wages then the laughing stops. The creditor has years to go after you for assets until their statute of limitations expires. This is why a bk strategy is so popular in your state of Florida.
If you want to look for foreclosure and pre-foreclosure homes in the area and do not want to pay to joint RealtyTrac or similar sites, you can visit my website. I have a section for a FORECLOSURE SEARCH which I update on a weekly basis with new foreclosure and pre-foreclosure properties in St. Augustine, St. Johns County, and Jacksonville areas. Be warned, though, that purchasing pre-foreclosure properties can be a lengthy process. Some banks are taking anywhere from 4-12 weeks to approve short sales! The process is usually much quicker and easier purchased properties that have already been foreclosures upon.... more
