My mortgage company foreclosed on my home on December 10,1999 and I was served a ”Notice to Quit” (I was not informed my loan was in default prior to Dec.10, 1999). I hired an attorney and he contacted the mortgage company attorney’s. I was then served with an Unlawful Detainer-Eviction Summons. I went to court several times and finally on April 6, 2000 the court ruled in my favor and awarded me attorney fees and court costs. Outside the court house on April 6 my attorney told me that we now needed to take the mortgage co. back into court to have the house put back into my name, again in May he told me the same
and he wanted $4000.00 to start this process.
Yesterday I went to the Recorder Dept. and found the house was put back into my name on April 7, 2000. I no longer want my attorney to work for me and I have requested my files (all my original checks and other paper work to support my case is in that file), he told me my file was in archive’s and it would take two weeks to get my file. Is there a time frame he has to give me my files? Also I want to sue the mortage company for damages, is there a time limit that I need to file?
