My question involves real estate located in the State of: Texas
A year ago we bought a forclosured trailer house and approximately .40 of an acre of land from a mortgage company. Land was sold to us as one piece of .15 acres and another as .25 acres. Was advertised at this amount of land. We questioned the fact that the tax office showed land was 70 x 90 lot. There were 2 lots listed in closing papers as two lots no sizes mentioned. The mortgage wanted to waiver survey but have a title policy which we agreed to. This last week we were approached by a person claiming that a portion of the land we occupied actually belonged to them and there were several years of back taxes due. This person discovered that this was the case when she renewed her drivers license and the tax office contacted her about taxes. She had sold the land to the people that had the trailer that was forclosed upon. She indicated that she had been paid for the property during a refinance happen on the trailer and property. However the deed nor lein was filled at the courthouse and therefore she was responsible for the back taxes. I have contacted the title company and they have contacted the mortgage company and are researching the problem. There was actually supposed to be 3 lots involved in the sale instead of 2. A portion of the house actually sits on this third lot. I am at a lose as to what to do. They are still looking at the matter but I am concerned of what the outcome will be. Any guidelines for something like this? I have printouts of e-mails from the mortgage company and the sales agent discussing the size of lots and they reinterate what was advertised.
