Customer Question
I had a mortgage...

I had a mortgage modification done and now HUD is saying that I owe them money for a lien that they placed on the mortgage I don't know how this was never explained to me, is this legal?

Lawyer's Assistant: Because real estate law varies from place to place, can you tell me what state this is in?

Florida

Lawyer's Assistant: Has any paperwork been filed?

The modification was done online mostly and HUD has sent me letters stating that I owe them and they sent a copy of a form with my signature on it but I don't recall signing it nor was it explained to me that I would owe HUD money

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

No I cant think of anything else at this time

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.

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.
