Who owns the house? My son thought he purchased a house on

Who owns the house? My son thought he purchased a house on Friday 8/19/16 in Bakersfield, Ca. He was told by the escrow co. that escrow had closed, the deed had been recorded and that he could pick up the keys and move in. Over the weekend, the family cleaned the yard and the inside of the residence. Today, Tues 8/23/16 they received a knock on the door. A man showed up and said "what are you doing in my house?". He further stated that yesterday, Mon 8/22/16 he attended a foreclosure sale "on the steps of the county courthouse" and purchased the property in question for cash. He went on to say that the deed had been recorded and that he will take legal action (eviction??) if my son did not vacate the house. He bought the property that was in foreclosure. My son knew the seller was behind in his payments but nothing was ever mentioned of an imminent foreclosure sale. Needless to say my son is upset and confused. Have you ever heard of the county forgetting to take a foreclosure sale off the market? My son loves the house and just wants to live their in peace and quiet. I am a retired attorney that needs some help on the subject. Please help.

My xboyfriend and i own a ct condo on the market for sale 2

My xboyfriend and i own a ct condo on the market for sale 2 yrs now. We assume high fees are reason for not selling along w/ yrly assessments, many rentals. We want to leave the property as no money will be made if sold and we will owe bal of mortgage. Unit appraised at $119k i believe, mortgage is currently $110k. On the market for $99k now. What is the best way for us to back out re tax ramifications? Short sale, foreclosure, deed in lieu? And do we just leave and the bank notifies us separately?

I have an HOA property case. I will use fictitious names. I

I have an HOA property case. I will use fictitious names. I am living at a Village Vacation resort. I purchased a piece of property from the Blum Family Trust. The Blums are on the HOA Board. The exact relationship hasn't been fully investigated yet. During closing I was told that all my HOA submissions, structures, etc. were approved. I submitted a formal package. Shortly after closing they changed their tune and the HOA is trying to fine me and even "repossess" the property. I didn't go through a conventional mortgage company so that is very difficult for them to do. I think it is deceptive sale. I am going to finalize a contract with an attorney to represent me in the case on Thursday but want another opinion. I think it is deceptive sale, but I would have to prove their financial relationship. My attorney said that you can't sue an HOA for a tort.

I inherited a condo in a gated community in 1989. However, I

I inherited a condo in a gated community in 1989. However, I was not 55 years of age, and passed it over to my father, who put both our names on the deed. I have been there every week, in and out having owned 3 other houses in different areas. My father passed over a year ago. I intend to keep the condo and use it as I have been. I will not rent it as it has been in my family since 1971.JA: Because real estate law varies from place to place, can you tell me what state this is in?Customer: Recently, I went to get the new barcode for opening the gate and they advised me that because I was NOT a full time resident (I was too honest !) I could not enjoy the amenities of the village, even though I am paying full maintenance (for 2, and I am only 1) and have been there longer than most, even the administration.JA: Well, we require $5.Customer: Can they do this ? Leisure Village Original, Lakewood, NJJA: Have you talked to a lawyer yet?Customer: noJA: Anything else you think the lawyer should know?Customer: that's basically it. Although, I asked them about "the SnowBirds" that are up only for the summer and they have their amenities. They said that they are temporary residents, so I said then put me as a Temporary if that is required. "NO, you are not full time !"

I own a deeded timeshare in Kauai at the Point in Poipu. We

I own a deeded timeshare in Kauai at the Point in Poipu. We bought the timeshare outright over 10 years ago, but have continued to pay the annual maintenance fee. 2 years ago our timeshare also added an assessment for repairs over a three yr period. This year due to some financial hardships we did not pay our annual fee/ assessment on time. We never received any notices until last week. We just received a "Notice of default an intent to foreclose buy power of sale under association lien."The auction is set for 8/25/16.We are now in a position to pay our maintenance fees as well as the assessments however diamond resorts has tacked on an additional $2000+ for 6 months in late fees and legal fees.These additional fees are impossible for us to pay now. Is there a way to pay our bill not including the fees and retain our ownership?

Looking for an attorney experienced with selling timeshares. Ebay shows a few completed sales at $1 for similar units. Annual fee is $900+. Have questions about the best way to selland things to look out for. Also, after the sale, is the former owner obligated in any way if a subsequent owner does not pay the annual fees. Thanks.
