I'm trying to help out my friend of twenty plus years who is in foreclosure.
I went to the town hall and researched the land records. In 2005, he took out an Option One mortgage. In that mortgage there was reference to an assignment that cannot be found in public records. Additionally, public records do not indicate an assignment to Deutsche Bank ever.
Furthermore, I googled Option One Mortgage assignments. A plethora of links come up talking about fraudulent assignments and foreclosure paper work. These links mainly refer to robo signed documents.
Having found no assignment to Deutsche, I believe there may be more "less than perfect" paper work to be uncovered.
At this point, what should my neighbor do with regard to having Deutsche proving standing to foreclose and what, if any paperwork should he request. Any other advice is certainly welcome.
The property is in CT. The lis pendens filed in 3/11 and there was an "inspector" at the house a couple of days ago. What should be done next?
