Customer Question
Good morning I'm Mr...

Good morning I'm Mr. Stevens my home was sold last year at a tax sale I made all the payments to the person that won the bid in the time allowed to get the house back from them now I'm not able to reach the person by phone to meet with me to sign over the transfer title deed back to me. I heave sent them a certified letter out lining all the monies paid and asked to meet so we can sign. have not gotten any response.

Lawyer's Assistant: What steps have you taken so far? Have you prepared or filed any paperwork?

I was told that the other party has to start the title transfer I did show them all the monies owed to them were paid to them.

Lawyer's Assistant: Where is the home located?

Customer:***** Augusta, GA. 30904

Lawyer's Assistant: Anything else you want the lawyer to know before I connect you?

If I can do the title transfer myself I want to do it asap.

Unfortunately, you cannot do the title transfer yourself if the deed is in the other person's name. By the way, do you live in the home? Who is paying the current taxes on it?

Anne was extremely helpful. Her information put me in the right direction for action that kept me legal, possible saving me a ton of money in the future. Thank you again, Anne!!

ElaineAtlanta, GA

It worked great. I had the facts and I presented them to my ex-landlord and she folded and returned my deposit. The 50 bucks I spent with you solved my problem.

TonyApopka, FL

Not only did he answer my Michigan divorce question but was also able to help me out with it, too. I have since won my legal case on this matter and thank you so much for it.
