When selling a house as a lease option, is the option fee,

When selling a house as a lease option, is the option fee, or any portion of it, Required to be applied toward the purchase price of the property or a down payment towards the property when opening escrow? Is it Required for the option fee to be considered and treated as a deposit or down payment on the property?If it is required, where can I find the actual law or regulation that says so and does this then somehow give the buyers equitable rights or any form of ownership during their lease term before they exercise the option to purchase?

Foreclosure action in Prince George's County, Maryland. I am

Foreclosure action in Prince George's County, Maryland. I am planning on disputing a foreclosure with a lawsuit of my own. I have filed a motion to dismiss in the circuit court already with that decision still pending. I now want to file my own lawsuit for TILA, RESPA, FDCRA, predatory lending, among other claims. I was wondering if I could file that claim directly in Federal court as opposed to the state court? I was also wondering if I could remove the foreclosure action itself from state to federal court and join it with the federal lawsuit?

We are in michigan and we received a 1099 tax form stating

We are in michigan and we received a 1099 tax form stating the forgave $38000 in debt from our foreclosure. The register of Deeds says there is no record of the sale and we are still the registered owners of the home. The bank says they sold it to a 3rd party at the sheriff sale for $12000 under what we owed the bank. So they only had to forgive $12000 of debt. It is a large bank and although people have agreed that the 1099 should be fixed every department says it's not their problem. Additionally, we are not out of our 6 month redemption period yet so how could the house have been sold and a 1099 issued? Our question is legally how can we either get the records of what they did or get them to correct the 1099 or issue it next year when our redemption period is up?
