update my house is being foreclosed and I didn't even know!
Tonight I come home from work to papers taped to my front door. Theyre stating that in March of 2013 the house was taken by the city for failure to pay taxes in 2011. We had no clue of this. Its stating we have until Court on January 14th 2014 to pay almost $9000 or move out.
We called his uncle amd all he said was "well, its your problem now"
Wtf!?!? I'm so mad I'm in tears! I didn't even want to move in this house. Dh swore he just wanted to help his uncle and blah blah blah. And now this?
*thanks everyone for the advice and listening to me complain. Its 2 in the morning and 6am comes awful early. I'm going to try and get some sleep. I'll check into everything everyone has suggested tonight. Thanks again.
*update* I've been on the phone all morning. I've been sent from the treasurer, to an equity loan place, to the county clerk, to different divisions of the county clerk.
Come to find out my home isn't even in my landlords name. Its in the name of a woman from another state. Taxes bills are sent her her and everything.
Found out theres 3 years worth of taxes that havent been paid. The only thing in my landlords name is the license to rent the property.
I have an appointment with a lawyer friday at 1:30.
To answer some questions
We signed a contract for lease. Apparently that never got turned in which even if it did I'm sure wouldn't matter considering its not in his name anyways.
No, my dh does not work. Why? He's lazy. He got ssi for a while but no longer does. I know he can work. Yes I'm aware that I should of left a long time ago.
Talked to the uncle again, he says "oh don't worry I'll fix it." I'm nit waiting. I'm not paying him another penny. Why pay money to the perwon who doesn't even own the house?
I didn't expect so many replies so I'll start trying to answer those now. Thanks to everyone with advice. I appreciate it.
