My dad is disabled and unable to make the payments either. I have power of attorney, will they come after me if payments are not made?

I have a house I filed bankruptcy on. The bank never

I have a house I filed bankruptcy on. The bank never released me from the mortgage and the house is going in foreclosure. I am no long financially responsible but still listed with county assessor so my name is ***** ***** complaint file in the court. Someone has paid the back taxes but I have another company coming to me willing to pay me and my mom (also on the house) for us to sign over our rights so this company can pay our back taxes and then they foreclose on the house and make a profit. Is this legal for us to do? This company is a registered LLC and my bankruptcy attorney stated this has nothing to do with my bankruptcy and I should consult real estate attorney.

My mother put the house in a trust to my sons. Property tax

My mother put the house in a trust to my sons. Property tax has fallen back by about 12K. It is being sought after and by February will go into foreclosure if not paid in full by then. Of course we do not have the funds. Also the hospice wants 50K. Can you help advise me as to what I might expect if I vacate the property and put it up for sale?

I am Joseph, I have a real estate question. I am one of five siblings, our mom passed last month leaving a mortgage. The home may face foreclosure, because everyone is not willing to pay their share of expenses. I need to know if I pay off the mortgage balance am I obligated to divide the estate in equal shares if or when the home gets sold? I need to mention that I was her conservator for the pass two years.I now have an appointment next week with probate to become administrator for the estate.

I received a summons Domain that I have nothing to do with.

I received a summons for Eminent Domain for property that I have nothing to do with. The summons lists a business name of unknown entity that I once had as a fictitious business name for but I never used it and then let it expire about 15 years ago. I found a deed that listed the same business name (Not me) that had requested the recording. If I file a response the court fee is $435 plus attorneys fees for something I have nothing to do with. Since this is Eminent Domain If I don't respond can I be held liable for fees, judgments?

If a company deliberately attempts to sabotage my own legal

If a company deliberately attempts to sabotage my own legal protection of my home and equity from foreclosure auction sale do I have an recourse against them? My mortgage company called 1- 1/2 weeks prior to the foreclosure sale date of my home telling me they granted me 60 days extension on sale date and a Loan Modification. Then one day later called and said they retracted same. Then two (2) days later the company's foreclosure attorney contacted me and told me the Sale date was cancelled and I was to work with the company. He then wrote me the next day and said the foreclosure sale date was back on. TWICE this company sabotaged me from hiring counsel to protect my home through bankruptcy. I cancelled my legal representation because they did this to me twice. Isn't this against the law?

I am writing representing an HOA with 166 homes in rural

I am writing representing an HOA with 166 homes in rural Marion County, Oregon. We are a manufactured community and each member owners their own home and lot. Our question deals with members who are not paying their dues or fines. We have a couple of home owners who think that they can live here for nothing. They do not work or if they do it is paid under the table so our collection agency cannot get anything out of them. They flaunt that they do not have to obey the rules. We have legal counsel but they charge so much and we do not have much money. Our annual dues are around $60 a year. Can we evict members – even if they own the property? Can we take them to small claims court and have a judge order them to pay and force them to obey? What can we do? Thank you.
