Customer Question
We recently purchased a...

We recently purchased a home in Coram. We bought this home in May of this year, The home was classified as a "Double wide" even though it was on a permanent foundation with a two car Heated garage attached , the previous owners never had the title changed to real property, so we did it. Now when we closed that was a question I asked several times "was the title fixed", this was gravely important to me because I was going to apply for a mortage rate decrease thru my bank in San Antonio , well, they couldn't do anything because its still listed as a Double wide. I did some checking and at the property assessor's office they had the same document as I had, but they didn't have the original document , Insured Titles hadn't delivered that one.

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

Montata

Lawyer's Assistant: Has any paperwork been filed?

Everything is how it should be except that certified copy

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

We had my Mother in Law live in with us for the past 6 years, she's wheelchair bound and quite a chore.

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.
