I personally would not pay anything up front to anyone.
Why would you think the foreclosure was faulty?
Did you pay every mortgage payment on time and in full?
Robo signing or not, I think that's what most judges are going to ask.
Go to the Justice of the Peace courts one day to observe eviction cases.
They happen so fast it will make your head spin. Often 100 or more in one day and
may 1 to 2 mins each.
Tenants may win a few on some cases, but when it comes to non-payment
the judges I've seen dont seem to have much sympathy other than a "I'm sorry, I
can't help you if you didn't pay". Next....
I am not an attorney and don't know much about the courts or laws, but I also
wonder if you file a lawsuit that is deemed to be frivolous if you might not have to
pay court costs and BofAs attorney fees. That would hurt.
Most attorneys I know have a free initial consultation period.
Where did you find this attorney?
