Diane Christner answered:
You left out some details, but it sounds like you purchased the property in 2016 and your lender escrowed taxes based on the 2015 tax bill of the previous owner. Because the homestead exemption was voided as of January 1, 2016, the property was reassessed for tax purposes and the taxes went up, which caught you by surprise.

Unfortunately you will be responsible for paying the balance of the tax bill to your lender.

Every county property appraiser's office that I know of has at least one web page dedicated to explaining the homestead exemption process, including the fact that you cannot rely on the current owners tax bill as a reflection of what you will pay as a buyer because a sale triggers a new assessment of the property.

It's just another tax that some communities have instituted when you sell (or transfer) your property. The fee varies, but is usually a fairly small percentage of the sale price.

Lis Pendens is Latin for "Suit Pending." Lis Pendens is a notice filed in the public record that a lawsuit has been filed against the property. Most likely the lawsuit filed is a foreclosure. So you can either approach the owner and payoff the outstanding loan to the bank or wait for the proeprty to emerge as an REO.

I am not an attorney and this is just my personal opinion based on what I have experienced. You will probably not be evicted in 4 weeks. If they do file for eviction ANSWER it. Don't merely let them get a default judgement against you (in which case you would in fact be evicted within 4 weeks). If you answer the complaint you may get an opportunity to go in front of the judge and explain the situation to him, along with an attorney for the bank who will more than likely be of more help with your situation then a Realtor who can not negotiate directly with you regarding cash for keys. I'm not sure that a 2 year lease will hold up against an eviction, and if you have been paying no rent to anyone I would expect that the eviction would be upheld. Another risk of waiting for eviction to be filed is that with an eviction on your record it very difficult to rent another property.

If I can help you find a new rental please let me know

Diana,
You didn't include an address. If you did, I'd just plug it into Google or Bing Maps and then request directions to the airport. You'll see the time and mileage.
