Thank you! The settlement was actually done without me going to court at all. It was done through the Federal Foreclosure Board originally... and further by Rust Consulting. So I guess you are saying to follow up with them first of all, which I had planned to, but if they do not follow through then I try to take them to court myself?
Another question I have is. In regards XXXXX XXXXX same home, I was renting to people under a personal contract/lease. For 1 full yr before the house was foreclosed on they stopped and did not pay me rent. Is there away of filing against them? Is the only choice to go to small claims court? How long after they stopped paying to have have recourse to file against them?
Is there a way of filing a brief of any sort or do I have to go directly the small claims court route in regards XXXXX XXXXX renter?
Since the house was foreclosed and I do not own anymore, will that be a problem to pursue the previous non-payment of rent prior to the foreclosure and transfer of ownership back to the bank?
In regards to our previous conversation. I was able to reach Rust Consulting, who were in charge of issuing the settlement checks. They will not give me any information as to how they calculated what to issue me a check for. They said that I was basically given whatever amount was sent to me. I have no recourse, it is a final payment. I did not give up my rights to anything by depositing the check, but there is nothing else they will do for me. I cannot appeal the error to them in anyway.
I am at a loss for how to proceed. I was given the wrong settlement amount, plus I lost my home, plus it has ruined my credit. I do not know what I can do?
What are your suggestions?
How do I find that information out. There is nothing written on the letter with check that was sent and Rust Consulting won't tell me anything.
