My question involves real estate located in the State of: Washington
My dad died September 2007 in the VA hospital from complications from cancer. I have guardianship of my mother who is in a nursing home and suffers from alzheimer's disease.
My parent's only assets were their home which they had a first and second mortgage on. I could not afford to pay off the mortgage so the home went into forclosure and was sold at a Trustee's sale in April. The home sold for $127,800, after the mortgage payoff and fees ($83,055) the proceeds that we expected to go to my mother are about $44,745.
Today I was informed by the mortgage company (HFC) that the title had been transferred to HFC and they would not be distributing any proceeds to my mother.
I asked the legal department for something in writing that would explain this, I am very confused, they said it was not their policy to send out anything in writing.
What the heck is going on? I can not believe that they can get away with this. Please advise.
