Eviction Notice, Part 3, Neptune Beach, FL

Real Estate Agent with Berkshire Hathaway Home Services Florida Network Realty BK 3030920

A buyer/ of mine, with a week old baby was served with eviction notices 3 weeks after closing on her new home.

As part of my assistance, I took photos of the notice, and emailed them to the title company to alert them we had an issue; after all, we could not have closed if there were any clouds on the title.

The title company responded to me that the file and notice had been elevated to the company president, and he reached out to the legal firm that generated the eviction notice.

This, combined with the homeowner having called the legal firm named on the eviction notice, as well as the attorney representing the buyer calling, served as a nice one-two punch to say "Hey, something's not right here!" move.

Now we just wait for Monday to start research to see what happened, and who will make the buyer whole with respect to her legal fees.

I'd get a title company involved NOW to see where the title situation is.....If there was a pay-off of any prior liens, those checks should have "cleared" after 3 weeks.
