Customer Question
I have a home in...
I have a home in Hammond Indiana , (7234 Jarnecke ) 46324, it has been wrongfully put on demolition list, I have a month left, my question would be are there any loopholes where if I quit claim the property to someone would buy me more time to renegotiate and coming to compliance? If not what is legitimate way to sell the property quickly? I'm open to auctions, finding the best investor, etc. There is a new train coming through call the west lake expansion of the South Shore and we are three blocks from it. Construction starts soon and property values are going through major increases. The house is worth $75,000 on Zillow and probably needs 15,000$ in repairs.

I am terribly sorry to hear this.
One can apply to the court seeking an injunction to stay any demolition orders and even to reverse it if it was made in error. It would be best to hire an attorney for assistance due to the complexity of inunction proceedings.
A quit claim can be voided if the court determined it had no true intent to transfer the property.A realtor should be able to discuss local options regarding quick sales or even possibly an investor that can arrange to make the required repairs.
