Facts to know regarding foreclosure in Florida

When a Florida property owner fails to make mortgage payments, it can sometimes prompt a lender to take steps to obtain possession of the property in question. Under federal law, however, the lender cannot start foreclosure proceedings unless the mortgage loan is more than 120 days past due. If the mortgagor has no means of doing so, the foreclosure may proceed and the property can be sold at auction pursuant to a judgment of foreclosure.

West Coast Indian tribe wins victory in real estate disputes

When Florida land buyers and real estate developers sign agreements, it sometimes takes years for the project or projects at hand to reach completion.

On the West Coast, an arbitration panel recently ruled on real estate disputes between a developer and an Indian tribe.

Some people know what it's like to face legal problems associated with their identities. In fact, more than a few people in Florida have been wrongly accused of crimes because of mistaken identity.

Deceased pastor's wife involved in real estate disputes

A rather contentious situation has arisen in another state that involves a widow and the church for which her now deceased husband had served as pastor.

Popular Florida restaurant facing foreclosure

Were US immigration law officials negligent re medical care?

A woman in another state says her 5-year-old daughter almost died while they were being held in an immigration detention center.
