My question involves a foreclosure in the State of: Ohio
I bought a bank owned property off a Realtor that had a outstanding water bill, that was to be paid at closing by Fannie Mae. Several months later I found out that the bill was not paid, and it was in the thousands of dollars and the small town it is in is charging 10% compounding monthly. I tried several lawyers in the area to help out but not one of them wanted to make the real estate agents mad in the area. A few took my money then said there was nothing they could do unless I wanted to sue Fannie Mae. The last lawyer advised me to stop making payments on it after the town turn the water bill to the county to put on property tax...over $25,000 tax bill on a property worth 45,000. Bank did a title search but they claim they are not liable. Recieved summons today for forclosure. Is any of this behavior illegal? can the town do this? 25,000 for water I never had turned on??
