I ve been in a battle over a house i bought from a homeowner
i ve been in a battle over a house i bought from a homeowner with equity loan. he was dying and want to travel the house needed a face lift to increase value so i agreed to buy the house so he could travel by paying loan payments and doing the remodel as down payment agreeing to a two max to buy and the purchase price being loan payout. he didn't want to not pay a debt he was old school. he was told 4-6 years but died 3 months. the home equity people were not old school and snuck in a foreclosure buy using notices sent to his S.C. address but not residence they opened probate there and notice was sent to loan servicer by probate clerk. i found out about the foreclosure 48 hrs before trustee sale and could nt stop it.i found out then about how risky it was to foreclose on deceased in texas i probate hasn't been open. i now a have more than enough reason reasons to open an independent administration in texas with a hand full of unpaid bills open checking and credit account a lawsuit by creditor was filed on him last month in tarrant county and the lawyer for the foreclosing bank using a writ filed in jp last month on him to illegally evict me with a pending lawsuit and injunction in place. after i was able to get the first eviction dismissed by defective delivery of notice to evict being how can give notice to deceased . and for over a year they have file on me until last month, so a constable knowing he was delivering writ to a dead then used warrants for tickets to arrest me literally to stop me from calling court clerk so his identity was now used to commit a crime.so i need to be guided through filing a emergency independent administration with no will no beneficiary or heirs besides me with financial interest pro se
This is in California. I am the buyer in a real estate transaction
This is in California. I am the buyer in a real estate transaction for which the seller is the executor for the owner who passed away. The executor has signed the sale contract as the seller on behalf of the seller's trust. We are about 7 days into contract. Yesterday, the executor passed away. What are the implications to the home sale transaction, if any? Once a new executor is determined, can the new executor change the course of the real estate contract already in progress?
