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

Ohio,Texas,Nebraska

Lawyer's Assistant: Has anything been filed or reported?

No -I just found it yesterday.

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

I'm thinking this was money from a escrow account on a house I sold in Ohio.

Thank you for your question. I look forward to working with you to provide you the information you are seeking for educational purposes only.

Unfortunately, if the account is closed and the business is now out of business, you have a unenforceable check. If the parent company still exists, then you need to send the parent company copies of the check and if they still refuse to pay, then you would have to file a small claims lawsuit against them where the parent company is located. So, this is not quite an easy fix I am afraid as you may thing since the original company is out of business.

Could the money have been turned over to the Secretary of State here in Texas
Lawyer: Law Educator, Esq., Attorney replied 4 months ago

Thank you for your reply.

It could have been turned over to the Secretary of State in the state where it was issued, but you said you checked into that I thought. It would be in the secretary of state's office in the state where you lived when it was issued if it was turned over to them.

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.
