My question involves real estate located in the State of: WA
- I have a judgment lien on an undeveloped property owned by Person A (as well, there are multiple other liens attached to the same property including a lien by the local County)
-Person B owns the undeveloped property adjacent to Person A's property
-Person A and B are friends and Person A is the builder/contractor for Person B's property development (early on, it is a known fact they are partners in the development of both properties)
-Person A borrows $30k from Lender X (a small amount relative to the property's value)....a few months pass and Person A doesn't pay back Lender X...
-Lender X forecloses on their $30k loan and takes ownership of Person A's property
-then Lender X appears to have sold Person A's property to Person B?! (though there's nothing recorded with the local recorder's office)
-Person B had signed a Deed of Trust on Person A's property though it seems no money changed hands
-Person B now seems to own Person A's property and is developing both properties (which to me seemed to be the plan from the start)
To me, this seems like a manipulation by an insider (ie. Person B) to fraudulently convey the property to Person B and to extinguish my judgment lien as well as other liens from Person A's real property.
-You may ask why would Person A and B go through this elaborate fraud to develop the two properties...both properties have significant defects and Person A needed to violate many County regulations to get both properties to the point they could be developed by Person B (ie. Bad Cop (Person A), Good Cop (Person B)
