Question I own a $490,000 recorded 2nd Trust Deed on an

QuestionI own a $490,000 recorded 2nd Trust Deed on an apartment building that was due and payable in full April, 2007. It was not paid. I just recently became aware of there being a recorded 1st Trust Deed on the same property. 1st Trust Deed holder is threatening foreclosure on apartment building. The owner of the apartment building has a buyer. An estimated closing statement was prepared and forwarded to me - Sale of building $895,000. Pay Off of 1st Trust Deed $700,000. Real Estate Commission $4425.00. Repair of Apartment Building $48,000. Closing Costs and Real Estate Taxes in arrers $48,000.00. Remainder to me $94,000.00 - this is what the owner wants to pay me (in full) to surrender the 2nd Trust Recorded Deed. Can the owner sell the property if I do not sign any papers? If the property is foreclosed upon by 1st Trust Deed holder, do I have any recourse in recovering any monies toward the 2nd Trust Deed I hold? Funny that the owner of the building is involved in real estate, as well as the 1st Trust Deed holder. He is a mortgage banker and 1st Trust Deed Holder is a real estate agent.

The association of my rental property has sued me

The association of my rental property has sued me for past due association dues and proceeded with foreclosure proceedings which they were granted as a result of my failure to pay my past due obligation. The association is now listed as the owner in Title. Over the course of the last two years and several tenant evictions over this course I was unable to pay the mortgage. The tenants were eventually evicted by the association and were forced out by the sheriffs. The property remained unattended and occupied by squatters for about 6-months. During this course of time I finally had the nerve and drive to find out what my legal stand was. In cooperation with the mortgage company and the insurance claim that was filed had given me hope that I would be able to rent the property in the previous habitable condition it had previously been. As a result the insurance claim was honored for Malicious Vandalism with about $40,000 in damages. The contractor hired by me and approved by the mortgage company have been working on the property on and off for the last 6-weeks. Last week the General Contractor was asked to leave the property or law enforcement would be called. The contractor identified that they were contracted by both myself the owner and the mortgage company. The association replied that I was not the owener and had no say on what could or would happen to the property. The mortgage company has reassured me that the property remains mine and in conjunction with the rehab work and the intention the rent the property again have offered and approved a loan modification which are suitable for both interested parties. My question is "Does the association have the right to have any control of the property at this time during the construction and rehabilitation of the home? They have been awarded a lien against the property is my understanding not ownership. Can I proceed with the rehab work weather or not the association and I have come to any justifiable terms for repayment. It is my intention to repay the association the past due amount to settle the lien over the course of time. How should address the matter and what position should I take at this time?
