I was a home owner and fell behind on payments. I submitted

i was a home owner and fell behind on payments. I submitted 4 requests to the lender for mortgage relief and was denied. during that time I had to file a protective order to keep my husband away. I eventually left in 2013 the home because I didn't feel safe. I filed bankruptcy in 2014 which included the house. The house has been unoccupied since 2013. The bank transferred the debt to a company called Rushmore Loans. The were nice and worked with me to complete a deed in lieu of. In June of 2015, they told me they paid the tax lien that was on the property, yet my Maryland tax return was taken. They also told me the paperwork was submitted to the assessment and recording office to remove my name from the property and were waiting for it to be signed. Then July 1 I get a notice from Rushmore that my account was transferred to another company. Essentially, starting the whole process over. This new company is asking for tax papers, save my home papers, etc. What is going on? Should i just tell them to file foreclosure since Bank of America never did? I divorced my husband in 2014 and his name isn't on the property. He died this month.

Father died July 20. Title on the mobile home is joint

Father died July 20. Title on the mobile home is joint tenancy with right of survivorship with me. I thought that means I become sole owner after death and home is not part of probate (if probate even occurs, likely insolvent due to medical bills). HCD wants me to send in death cert and "transfer without probate" form HCD475.2, which has statements that don't pertain (no will, less than 40 days have elapsed, may be creditors against his estate). I am in process of selling unit (filled out paperwork and exchanged funds/keys yesterday) as I cannot afford monthly space rent of unit but was cosigner on his space rent. Do not know yet if any previous tax liens...if so would be under $1,000 likely. Hope to pay off with any proceeds.

Here is my question-is there a way for my current residence

Here is my question-is there a way for my current residence in IL can be affected by a foreclosure of a property I co-own in MO? Here is the background-I co-owned a home with a live-in boyfriend, we broke up, I remained in the home and paid the mortgage alone. I ran into difficult times and fell behind on mortgage payments and decided to sell home-I was not able to ever qualify to re-fi the home and get his name off. I was almost successful in selling the home as a short sale, but at the 11th hour it was discovered that there were over $25,000 in tax liens owed by the former boyfriend! I contacted him and advised that this will go to foreclosure as the only other option, unless he wants to moves back in and I move out. This all occurred over 4 years ago. I have since married and living in a home w/my husband in which his name only on the home loan, but my name is ***** ***** home title. The former boyfriend is stating he has married and they are not sure how long they can pay on both mortgages, and I guess there has not been an attempt to rent out that property. If they let that property foreclose is the home with my husband in jeopardy? sorry for the long explanation!

My ex is on a deed to my property in New Jersey, USA. I had

My ex is on a deed to my property in New Jersey, USA. I had a quit claim deed transfer drawn up, to transfer the deed in solely my name. She has little to no equity in the house and owes 2/3 of the mortgage, I owe 1/3. The mortgage is solely in my name with a divorce decree that states she is liable for her amount owed. She has a business that has a tax lien, and a pending case for federal taxes owed on another business. She states the quit claim document can't be processed because it would be fraud, to transfer the property, while a lien is on her business. There is no lien on the house/property. Can she transfer the deed to me, without breaking the law or committing fraud?

This is a real estate question: I Live in New Jersey. I want

This is a real estate question:I Live in New Jersey.I want to sell my house that I bought a few years ago in cash for $220,000. I titled the house only in my name, my husband was not On the title. However They said my husband has to come to the closing to sign for selling the house. That part is fine.I have a $10,000 federal tax lien against me only. My husband has a $60k federal tax lien against him only(remember, his name is ***** ***** the house title).My question is when I sell the house and they do the title search, I'm sure they will see my lien and also my husbands lien. Im sure they will take the $10,000 that I am responsible for. However, will they also try to take the 60k for my husbands lien?
