This means that the mortgage company has included your taxes as part of your monthly payment. They take a portion of your payment every month, hold it in an account called an escrow account, and then disburse it according to the requirements of the county that your property resides in.

Should you sue a title company for not paying your mortgage balance at closing which caused your house to go into foreclosure?

Notice should have been given to the homeowner by the mortgageholder letting them know that the balance on the mortgage had not been paid. At that point the title company could have been contacted and the matter should have been cleared up before the mortgage holder could finalize foreclosure proceedings. Therefore, I do not believe that the title company could have caused a mortgage foreclosure.

How do you get a letter from your previous mortgage company stating you no longer hold responsibility of property due to foreclosure?

You should receive a letter from the mortgage company stating that mortgage lien is released when the house is sold or auctioned off. This does not mean that you no longer have an obligation unless the mortgage company sold the house for an amount that would cover your total balance including all collection costs and any other costs, like real estate taxes, utilities etc. that were incurred. If the mortgage company did not have a deficit balance left, you should have no trouble getting such a letter, but if there is a balance due, the letter may state something to the effect that the property has been sold but a deficit balance of a certain amount of money is due.

Where do you go to get your car back?

Your car has obviously been towed away and impounded so you are going to have to find out what towing company took it. If you have been in an accident then it's in a police impound. May not be in a police impound unless they are doing an investigation which requires it to be impounded. It depends on where it is. Was it repossessed? Was it left on the side of the road? Was it parked in a no parking zone? Was it parked in a reserved spot?

How do you deduct property tax payments in the year you bought property?

Like anything else, you apply the appropriate amount on the appropriate schedule when you file your tax return.There are four types of deductible nonbusiness taxes:State, local and foreign income taxes;Real estate taxes;Personal property taxes; andState and local sales taxes.To be deductible, the tax must be imposed on you and must have been paid during your tax year. However, tables are available to determine your state and local general sales tax amount. Refer to Form 1040 Instructions for more information. Taxes may be claimed only as an itemized deduction on Form 1040, Schedule A.Note it is the amount paid...not the amount that may have been charged. If your taxes are part of your mortgage, the amount the mortgage company estimates and charges monthly is different than the amount actually paid in that year. However, all you need to know about any taxes or interest charges will be provided by the mortgage company at the end of the year. Just use those values on your return. (If you use any of the popular tax return softwares, just follow the questions and answers....and if not...this is a great time to start)!.
