I sold a two family property in brooklyn, New york
12/22/2006. At the closing there was an equity loan that
was paid but the satisfaction letter was never submitted.
It was aggreed at the closing that upon the receipt of the
letter all paperwork would be transfered and remaining
funds(closing cost) released from the banks attorneys
escrow accounts .
Two weeks later the satisfaction letter was recorded.
Unfortunately the banks attorney for the lender escrow
account was seized by the AUSA. The ony money that was in
the escrow account from this transaction were the closing
fees in the amount of $24k. The title co. states that the
deed will not be transfered until all the fees are paid
all though the paperwork has been signed and dated.
NYC records show that I am still the the only person on
the deed with all leins an mortgage satisfied. My lawyer
at the time no longer returns my calls. The buyer states
its not her problem. The buyer's lender option one
mortgage stated just write us a letter and we will forward
it to the buyer? I recieving tax statements,and water
I even chnged the locks on the door. All they did was
change them back. It would take at least 3-6 moths to
attempt to get an eviction in nyc housing court mind the
transaction. The last two attorneys I spoke with stated
they ould not be sure where to begin? And suing cost is an
Q.Is the title company responsible and would it be
feasable to sue
Q. Can I legally sale this property again, this thing has
been going on close to two years.
