Initial Client Questions
Why wasn't I notified about these funds?
In many cases, the holding agency will only mail a letter to the address they have on file, usually the previous owner's foreclosed address. Extreme measures to notify people with surplus due to them are not usually taken. Since the holding agency knows that after a certain time goes by and the rightful owner has not claimed the funds, the agency gets to keep the funds. It is not in their best interest that you as the previous owner should know about it.
Where are these funds coming from?
In the event of a tax deed or a mortgage foreclosure, the county holds a foreclosure auction on your property due to unpaid taxes or defaulted mortgage. The opening bid at this auction is for the amount of taxes or mortgage that is owed. Most people do not know that if these properties sell for an amount above the opening bid, any profit remaining is due to the previous owner minus liens.
Do I have to pay anything upfront?
Money Matters Asset Recovery will cover all the costs to process the claim. We work on contingency (in other words, you pay nothing unless we collect) and payment is due only AFTER we successfully collect your funds, as noted in your client agreement.
Can I redeem these funds on my own?
Collecting these funds in most cases require a motion or application to be filed with the court or government agency. Hiring an attorney on your own could also be costly. Attorneys typically charge an hourly rate which needs to be paid, upfront, whether or not they are successful in recovering your funds.
With Money Matters Asset Recovery, we will advance all attorney’s fees and any related expenses incurred during our investigation. Your only upfront investment is your signature. Most importantly, we know how to handle the claim efficiently and effectively.
