SC is a judicial foreclosure state. That means that the bank must have court approval to foreclose and even if the sale (auction) has taken place an interested party can object to the sale and delay the process. If no interested party objects the sheriff can order the deed transfer. It sounds as if some interested party, perhaps another lender, mortgage insurer, bankruptcy judge even a mechanic or HOA lien could be holding up the process. The title will eventually clear, but it is probably not a high priority for the bank. There is probably nothing as a buyer you can do but wait. A lot depends on your contract and what options you have regarding cancellation.

I guess it depends on your time constraints. As you mentioned if the property degrades it make cost you more in repairs than it is worth. If you can find another property that you like as well maybe moving on will be best.

It will take as long to repair your credit dear, as you have to obtain your report.

**Dispute what is wrong, and then call each debtor and make a deal with them, they will accept a lessor amount to pay it off and be very happy to hear from you. (Deal with the debtor, and not a collector.)

** Or start to pay on them each month. A little to each will raise your score too.

**You can also enter into a contract with one of those "credit repair agencies" but beware they are going to do the same thing you can do yourself, depending on the damage on your credit report..

They are supposed to be professionals, but read the fine print, sometimes the interest rate you pay these companies, and the time length that they promise to improve your credit is ridicules, so beware..

Best of Luck to you, and God Bless you.

Be sure to talk with several builders. Since you are coming from out of town you will want to make sure that you have gotten the right builder and price before signing on the dotted line. I would try to connect with people/business' in the area and ask them for their recommendations on who to use. ... more

Congratulations on deciding to make the move to the Upstate! As a local real estate professional the first question I have for you is why are you looking for a rental, as opposed to purchasing, especially in today's buyer friendly market. I'm sure however you have your reasons and I would love to put you in touch with my company's property management division as they may be to help. If you have any questions or would like for me to send you any literature on the area I would be more than happy to help. Please feel free to call or email me!

Thank you,
Steve Gardner
