Customer Question
informed him of moving, started...
I am in a land contract in Michigan and the investor after I informed him of moving, started marketing my house for much more than what he told me he I owed. He put an ad on craigslist for house for sale using a different street address in our neighborhood to field calls for a new land contract purchaser, left boxes at my home , and posted days for potential open house without discussing any of the details with me. I have since contacted a realtor who told me all of these actions are illegal. Do I have any recourse in this situation. I feel he is trying to harass us and he will do anything to try to make us break the contract so he can get another buyer in our house to make a profit. What should I do.

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.
