Hello,My name is***** am a two time veteran.I and my wife has both disabled.We are being forced to give up our house of 17 years for non payment of taxes.WE have finally stopped paying the mortgage payments which we never missed.WE are being closed on $5000.in county taxes.WE have moved out and going to shut off utilities on monday the 6th of June.MY problem is they are saying they want to start working on the property asap. THE only paperwork they have provided is a right to cure default from the the bank, nothing from the court can they force us to turn over the property without legal paper work because we moved out? We are in contact with them and will continue to be. Do i need to give it to them without legal paperwork? Should i tell them no?..... James Hickrod. Thanks

I just got a small house in a County Tax Deed Sale here in

I just got a small house in a County Tax Deed Sale here in So.California. The former owner is still living in the house and is a bit of a horder. The property is 5 acres and filled with old cars, RV's and tons of crap. The county will transfer the deed into my name within the next 30-45 days. I know I can't do much until then but after the deed has been transfered into my name, do I give him a 3 day "Get Out Notice" then show up with a Sherif? Also, what can I do with all his stuff if he can't or won't move it out? Should I go to him now and try "Cash For Keys? I just dont want this guy to trash my new place. He has lived there for many... many... years and simply felt he shouldn't have to pay property taxes. Thanks...Larry

I am currently renting a condominium in Las Vegas, Nevada. I

I am currently renting a condominium in Las Vegas, Nevada. I moved in mid April on a lease set to expire end of October. My lease is between myself and a property management company acting on behalf of the owner of the property. Yesterday, I get a call from management stating that the owner has short sold the property. They are inquiring if I could possibly vacated by July 1st and offer to pay moving expenses. They sent me forms to fill out which looks like some federal foreclosure prevention program that wants my social number and consent to do a credit check on myself. I see no reason for this as I am not applying for anything and don't need any inquiries on my credit especially since a new landlord will likely want to do credit as well. Is this a legitimate program and what rights do I have if I can't find a suitable property to move to before July 1st?

I am looking into starting to buy homes at Sheriff Sales.

I am looking into starting to buy homes at Sheriff Sales. There seem to be many legal curve balls. I know that I will receive the deed at auction if I am the highest bidder and if the property is occupied they have 180 days to come up with the money.However, how do you get a tenant out? What if they are paying the mortgage just not the taxes? I have many questions like this.Thank you in advance.DavinnaDallas, TX

We are tenants of a property that has gone into foreclosure.

We are tenants of a property that has gone into foreclosure. We were told the process would be: Open House, Auction & Confirmation hearing then either vacate or redo lease. The loaning bank was the only bidder and advised the court appointed commissioner after the auction that they wanted the property vacated. Previously the commissioner stated that we wouldn't receive the 45 day notice until the confirmation hearing was over, but was issued the notice to vacate 3 days after auction. Can we be issued the notice to vacate prior to the Confirmation hearing? Auction was in Feb,. hearing is scheduled for May 24th. We are in Hawaii.

Cash . Is there anything illegal about offering a

"Cash for Keys". Is there anything illegal about offering a non-paying, uncooperative and undesirable tenant on a month-to-month rental agreement a sum of money, ( as well as forgiveness of the sum owed in arrears - which, realistically, will never see anyway and she doesn't care about her credit rating), if and when she will leave by a specified date? Conditions to include removing all of her possessions and garbage; verification by a third-party and photographs that this is been completed; and the signing of an acknowledgment that the rental agreement has been terminated; and written acceptance of the offer by a specific date only. Payment of offered sum to be made upon completion of above only .) I could explain why this seems to our advantage but I'm not sure it's relevant. We intend to pursue the UD in the meantime, since we can always drop it if it is no longer necessary to use that means to get her out...
