Lawyer's Assistant: What steps have you taken so far? Have you prepared or filed any paperwork?

No paperwork. Numerous phone calls and emails and messages and texts. Only response was email and occasionally text with promises they were going to make deposits and never did.

Lawyer's Assistant: Where is the property located?

I live in Ny This property was just for rentals. Didn’t know if I need NY or FL lawyer

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

I got a foreclosure notice that I had to cure myself with legal fees added on. I couldn’t make the mortgage payments because VIR management hasn’t paid me my rent
