Have Legal Questions? Ask a Lawyer Now.
Hello, and thank you for contacting Just Answer. I am an expert here and and I look forward to assisting you today.
Did you lie about anything or do anything other than buy the house and allow them to live there?
I signed a paper saying that i did not know them
Who gave you that paper?
The banks lawyer, from the closing 3 years ago
I did them a favor, and unfortunatley it bit me back, now im selling the house and they wont leave so i want to make sure i have no problems
Did you sign that before or after the closing? And was this the bank that you were buying it from or the bank that was financing it?
During the closing, the bank who owned the house
I am trying to find the paper now to confirm, didnt realize how quick this would be
is it possible to pause this session
until i find it so i can give all details
Sure. You can leave it and then come back to it.
ok give me 5 mins i am finding it now
thanks so mcuh
Just don't respond to this and I think it will send you an email so you can come back to it. Just to be sure when I see you exit I'll post something else.
I'll be online most of the night so just post when you find it and I'll come back to it as soon as I can. Wait in chat after you post.
ok so i think its the bank of the short sale
i cant find the document anywhere
worst case scenario what is my exposure?
Ok the agreeement i signed from the short sale bank said that i agree that i have no connection, relation, association with the current owners.
Which i did, and are still there.
There was no consequences stated
So basically looking to understand what NY state laws are on this
Thanks alot for your help. Appreciate it.
