I want to buy a foreclosure in california? How do I buy a home, I got all cash, and have looked on foreclosure.com and zillow.com for homes, and picked a few. The house is located in sutter county. I don't even know where to start, and I know local real estate agents hide offers all the time so their client can get a house, etc. Any way I can work directly with the bank? Need an expert who has worked on foreclosures on this. Thanks!

I have retained an Attorney in Texas to foreclose on

I have retained an Attorney in Texas to foreclose on property that I am a note holder. I'm residing in Las Vegas, however I make frequient visits to Texas.He is asking me, after serving the first notice, to add himself as a "Substitute Trustee" to both properties I'm asking him to forclose on. He is refusing to give me an explation as to why this is necessary other than it will facilitate the Foreclosure.My question is this absolutely necessary? Why would he really want to be named an Substitute Trustee? I want to resele the properties in question and have never asked him to sell the foreclosed property. I suspect that he may be holding me hostage to filing the second notice until I sign and notorize the Trustee affidavits. I have prepaid him $2000.00 as a retainer.Can you advise.

I've been thinking about this private sale offer I'm about

I've been thinking about this private sale offer I'm about to make on a property in Montgomery County, PA...but the deal seems too good to be true if their is no mortgage payoff by me to the bank. Before I place my offer as I'm prepared to buy for past owed taxes and city/county liens...who can I contact to make sure the bank isn't asking for any money from me? ...I don't feel that the county person knows this answer before I place offer. Can I ask title company to find this out? Is there fee I can pay you to find this out?

I am starting the 4th month of a 2yr lease in a New York

I am starting the 4th month of a 2yr lease in a New York City apartment I leased with a private owner through a broker. I agreed to pay the first 3 months and the last 3 months of rent in advance. September 1 is the start of the 4th month but I have been unable to contact the owner through email or through the real estate broker regarding where to send the rent check. I am concerned that the owner may be in default and wonder#1 what is my status as a tenant if the mortgage lender takes back the property?#2 To whom if anyone should I be sending a rent check (no address is specified in the rental agreement)?#3 At what point would I be at risk for paying a $500 monthy late fee?#4 what will be the status of the final last 3 months of rent I paid in advance if the lender does indeed reposess the property?
