Im not sure if anything can be resolved in the situation

Im not sure if anything can be resolved in the situation that I am but maybe you can tell me if I can? I gave money to an llc in order for them to repair a house and give back the money once the house was sold. The only thing I have in writing is a promissary note for the amount that I invested. Unfortunately things went south when one of the members of the llc started to occupy the property as well as changing the locks on the property so no one else can enter. I hired people to start working on the property ss well and one of the owners from the llc would make it impossible for the people to work on the house. This has been an ongoing issuee for more then a year and rhe The house has been in progress of foreclosure and im not sure if we have lost the house yet. is there anything i can do to possibly take control of the house so i can retrieve my money back?

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.
