A property management company purchase my home during a

A property management company purchase my home during a foreclosure sale. I spoke to about retrieving my property from the residence on the 16th of Jun . He told me they had already cleaned the place out and that he had left me a message on my phone for me to come and get my property on the 12th of Jun. I have no such message on my phone. This person never tried to contact me. The person I had staying at the time says they were rushed out and was he told he was going to sell my belongings. I don't think this was the proper procedure. Was it legal for him to sell my property with no notification.

My question has to do about moving out of a rental property.

Hello and good morning. My question has to do about moving out of a rental property. I moved out a month ago out of a rental town home and left everything clean, I patched the holes that where made by my family and I. Although with all my efforts we got charged for general cleaning and for patching holes on the wall. What are the rules and regulations on this? and is it even worth it to legally do something when they took 80% of the deposit I was entitled to receive back. This is the state of North Carolina in the city of Charlotte. Thank you and have an amazing day.

We need to have a person to lease our rental properties in

We need to have a person to lease our rental properties in Michigan. Does a person need to have a real estate license to lease our rental properties in the state of Michigan? Could we hire someone as an independent contractor to show people the units? Could they sign them up or would a broker/salesperson need to sign the lease? My understanding is that a property manager needs a license as they collect ongoing percentages for the leases. Correct?

My rental property manager just gave us threatening messages

My rental property manager just gave us threatening messages saying he will sue us for damages to property because we spread a few moth balls in the apartment. He said that because we left a few moth balls in the living room thinking it will keep the insects out but it filled the room with moth ball stench. As soon as he notified us, we got someone to remove the moth balls. He has been harrasing us for the last 3 months, he accused us of breaking the property when we said the garbage disposal was broken. He accused us of intentinally stalling showings because we asked for 2 more days to spruce up the house. I am pretty sure I can sue him for landlord harrasment but I am worried about a clause he inserted into the contract"In the event Landlord institutes a legal actionagainst the Tenant to enforce the lease or to recover any sums due hereunder, Tenant agrees to pay Landlord reasonable attorney's feesin addition to all other damages."does this mean I have to pay his attorney fees as well even if I am being harrassed?

I bought 4 rental properties some years ago and it was

i bought 4 rental properties some years ago and it was strictly an interest only loan. rents and cost of repairs and maintenance were insufficient to fully pay interest on loan monthly. For the last 2 and half years, I asked the mortgage servicer to take them back but they simply turned around and sold the note off time and time again. A couple of months ago, they went to court to ask for foreclosure and all accrued interest on the loans and other fees and charges which were in the $200,000 range for each of the houses. I did not receive a letter to come to court on that date and the judge granted them all that was requested.It is totally impossible to repay them and I cannot afford to even pay a lawyer and I am looking for a pro bono lawyer that can represent me. Please let me know what to do, thanks.
