JA: Has any paperwork been filed?
Customer: not yet, I filed bankruptcy, but we dismissed in order to sale first, forclosure not filed yet

The title company can fix this.They can hold funds and pay off the Condo Association as part of closing.Your realtor should work with them to resolve.This should not stop closing if you have realtor give title company a heads up and resolve it here.Please do not despair this can be fixed if there are sufficient funds to pay it off from closing here in Texas.I did several of these as a title company lawyer.Realtor and you should go talk to title company and resolve this.

I appreciate the chance to help you tonight.Thanks.

If you can positive rate 5 stars it is much appreciated.

Hello what if they file foreclosure while in option period

I would hope the title company lawyer can resolve this.Foreclosures are first Tuesday of each month, you would be good at least until Sept here.

they had previously filed the emergency hearing on foreclosure then I filed bankruptcy but we had court today my lawyer dismissed it so we could sale it catch up dues verses surrendering it with our dismissal did that make that foreclosure go through or do they have to re file

You would be noticed here of any hearing on the foreclosure.You will know at that point how much time you have.

Good luck here I think you have right idea and real good chance to sell and close prior to foreclosure.
