I met with the buyer at her house to see the eviction notice, and confirm who had served it. I took photos as well, to have copies for my files. (LOVE the iPad!)
I had already emailed the local assocation's legal counsel with a thumbnail sketch of the situation to get his input. (See? Being involved in the local association has major bennies!)
I reiterated to her again to not worry, we would at the very least accomplish two things:
- Get a stay (extension) on the writ of possession.
- Find our next steps once the legal counsel had replied to me.
The attorney got back to me and gave me three names & phone numbers, and I managed to secure an attorney for her. She had just had a C-section, so she can't drive, and we did a conference call to discuss the situation.
A motion was drafted, signed, notarized, and returned to the attorney, who filed it with the Foreclosure division of Jacksonville, where the eviction notice originated.
The dogs have been called off, and the impending eviction for Tuesday has been put on hold - we still have to figure out what happened where, but at least, she knows she does not have to worry.
