Please let me know what question you have.

Customer: replied 8 months ago.
Can I fight the foreclose and maybe settle for a reduced amount?
Expert:  DrakeLAW replied 8 months ago.

Well tell me about what you are thinking as far as fighting it? Do you believe they have done something wrong?

Customer: replied 8 months ago.
The property originally had a home on it. But the home was condemned and torn down and removed by Hillsborough county in Florida.
Expert:  DrakeLAW replied 8 months ago.

Alright, that doesn't strike me as something the bank is responsible for though and something that would rise to the ability to fight the foreclosure. Is there anything else in terms of fighting it?

Sure you can contact them to see about settling it but usually they won't and want it to go through foreclosure because it wipes out all liens and for other reasons. You can purchase it at the foreclosure sale.
