One of my favorite parts about being a foreclosure surplus lawyer is the strategy. When I sit down and have a consultation with a former homeowner regarding their surplus funds, I formulate a plan to put them in the best position possible to win their foreclosure surplus money.
The first thing I advise homeowners on is to never assign away their rights to an asset recovery company. Simply put, “Why assign all of your rights away when you can hire a lawyer to actually represent your rights!” Second, I pull up the case docket and look through a variety of factors, including: 1) when did the “sale” occur? 2) how many, and what kind, of subordinate lien holders exist? and 3) are there any other parties that may make a claim (other owners/Plaintiff)? These factors help determine the course of strategy in a surplus case.
Most lawyers and/or third party companies will simply have you sign an agreement and then they will file a boiler plate motion. That’s not how we work here at Haynes & de Paz. We make sure to put homeowners in the best position possible to collect the full amount of their funds.
For example, I had a case last week in Hillsborough County where a subordinate lien holder held a $50,000.00 mortgage. However, they filed a motion for surplus funds that I deemed to be procedurally inaccurate. I was able to keep the second mortgage from collecting and my clients won their surplus funds.
Another example, I had a homeowner association foreclosure surplus case in Pasco County a few weeks ago. Within a week of the sale, I was able to get the former homeowners an order giving them the entire amount of the surplus funds! Even though there were no other subordinate lien holders, getting the money 2-3 months faster for the homeowners was a big win!
