Am I at risk of fraud with the bankruptcy? I honestly thought I had listed everything.
Also - now the bank is trying to say that they should have all the land as well as the house. What are their chances of proving this? Was it their mistake or mine? I just read the refinance mortgage prior to theirs and I received enough money cash out at the time of that loan to pay the contract for deed off in cash. The land was not included with the home on that mortgage, I am assuming it was not needed for the last one either. Please help. This is getting complicated!
