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.
