Hi, In Alabama, I invested in a tax lien tax eventually became a tax deed. I found that the deed had past due excessive HOA fees and liens, and the mortgage is more than the value of the condo.

I am an active licensed real estate agent in Georgia. My

I am an active licensed real estate agent in Georgia. My broker suggested I contact a real estate lawyer. I bought a Georgia tax lien on a piece of land from the city of Dahlonega. It was a small lien only $34.20. The property is for sale and I would like to make an offer. Is it legal for me to ask for a lesser sales price with my offer? Please do not respond unless you are licensed in the state of Georgia to practice law. No paralegals or non-licensees in Georgia etc.

I bought and paid for a house 13 years ago ( 143 Willetta

I bought and paid for a house 13 years ago (***** with my girlfriend ( paid cash). I put in her name and fixed up the house. We signed a 10 year balloon loan contract and got it notarized. The contract expired Aug 2014, and I then took steps to transfer back to me since she did not have the money for the balloon payment. Nov 5th she transferred to me via general warranty deed and 3 months later I transferred into a LLC and into my trust. I bought another house with my girlfriend 10 years ago(*****. I paid for the closing fees, and all upgrades and repairs ( about 50K) over the 10 years. I put it in her name as I had 1 rental already and wanted to reduce my liability in case of any legal issues and it was easier to get a 30 year loan ( was a 100K home). Basically I was the owner (or private lender), and she paid the mortgage sometimes to help out. I did not sign any written agreements this time as I was in love and I assumed we would be together forever( haha).Unbeknownst to me on Nov 8th 2014 ( just after the 143 house transfer) the IRS paced a Lien on Ms. Wilson due to Tax audit. Jan 2015 we separated, and signed a separation agreement, and I gave her 40K for*****home( tax value 105K)( to compensate for any mortgage and tax payments she made)...not knowing still that there was any liens on the house.IRS wants to foreclose on both properties claiming fraud...??!!IRS Say their lien on 138 was before the notarized separation agreement and I paid her no considerations.Do I have a Equitable position in #138 house to trump their tax lien? As the house we bought before ( 143) has a paper trail showing our "relationship" with me being private lender and equitable position long before IRS debts. I have receipts of repairs that I paid also.

My son (David) bought a home in Bertram, TX for $125,000

My son (David) bought a home in Bertram, TX for $125,000 with a $23,000 down payment and $102,000 financed by the seller on July 15, 2015. David has title subject to the seller's mortgage/loan although I gave him the $23,000 for the down payment which he made in his name. Now the seller needs cash so he wants me (David's father) to buy the mortgage at a discount ($99,536 for $75,000). A title search was done when David purchased the house. Since this is a very good deal, I want to buy the mortgage/note even though I know my son will be less diligent in paying me. My questions:1) Do I need to do another title search? I assume that I do not; hence, no title company involvement only a real estate attorney. 1a) Is there a need to check if the mortgage/loan have been encumbered in some way by the seller/mortgagor?2) Do I just have the original mortgage/note assigned to me and notify my son of the change? I assume this means my son continues to make payments based on the amortization of $102,000.3) Can I buy the mortgage/note using a DBA; for example, My Name dba/XYZ Mortgage Service Co. Then, when I notify my son of the change, I'll do it under the letterhead of XYZ Mortgage Service Co and have the payments mailed to a PO Box.4) Can I require my son to escrow property taxes and home insurance even though the original seller/mortgagor did not require it?5) Can you handle the legal work involved in assigning the documents to me? Can I do this myself with your help? How much would you charge?
