Just open the letter Rich

By
Real Estate Agent with Coldwell Banker Residential Brokerage 531132

What is it about certified letters from Attorneys that give us pause before we open them? Maybe it's just the profession we work in.

I got one today, and of course all the worse things go through your mind immediately. I guess it's just human nature to put off what we think is bad news.

I tried to think of any transaction that didn't go well, and nothing came to mind. You never know though, since buyers and sellers can stew a long time before taking any action.

As it turns out, it was nothing. A short sale listing that never sold is now being foreclosed. The attorney was just letting me know that if I had any liens on the property...they just went poof with the foreclosure.

Now, if I get a letter from the IRS...I'm really not opening that one.

I agree, certified letters are generally not something we look forward to getting.

I received a similar letter from an attorney.  They want me to be a witness.  Not such a bad thing however the case is 500 miles from where I live.  I wonder if they can Skype me?

Rich,

Well, it is a good thing that it was nothing of consequence. On the upside, you have a relationship with an attorney that thought enough of you, to let you know what was going on with the property.

Rich, certified letters do get our attention. Glad this one was just a formality. Have relaxing and tasty Thanksgiving.

I am always amazed how many people send important data and info unregistered. They can't prove you got it which means they must owe you money...
