    Unhappy got bad news today ...

    Well I'm certainly glad I have EBN to brighten my mood ... I got some bad news that is putting a damper on my spirits!! I relocated almost 3 years ago to where I'm living now to be closer to my son, well as I've mentioned on here already he has joined the Marines and leaves for boot camp on January 28th (which isn't the bad news LOL) ... We have been renting this great little house for the 3 years that I've been over here and I absolutely love this little house but today I got a call from my landlady and she said that the bank isn't willing to work with her and the house will be going into foreclosure, she has done all she can to help me and because of a lease etc. the bank will have to do a cash for keys settlement with me, which is going to help a lot, they have to buy me out of my lease so will give me a nest egg to get into another place ... it's just finding another place that will accept my 3 dogs that will be difficult ... I've applied for a job in the pharmacy I used to work for before I moved over here ... keep me in your prayers that I am able to get it, if I can find work over there at least when my son leaves me in January I will be back over where all my family and friends live. So stressful I just hate moving and I'm so worried about finding work and a new place to live ... I just want to crawl into a hole and cry!!!

    If the house is going into foreclosure can you buy it at a reduced price should you want to stay put?

    If you are in a financial situation to buy, that would be great - another thing to look at, the Bank probably doesnt want the house to sit empty - I'm not sure if they are set up for 'renters' or not, but it might be something to investigate, and lastly, the foreclosure/sheriff sales process, takes almost 2 years (In Delaware) I'm not sure how far into the process your landlady is.

    Good luck, we are thinking of you !

    I've considered that and have actually talked to her about it but I am having trouble finding work over here, pharmacy technician jobs are few and far between in this area so that is the only thing keeping me from trying to purchase the house ... I don't know maybe it's a hidden blessing, maybe I am meant to move back closer to my family and not stay over here when my son leaves. I guess I will just have to ride the tide and see where it takes me !?!

    Where is your home? Maybe your family can start looking for a place for you to live, as well as keep their eye out for jobs in your field in the paper. I hope and pray you are successful in getting your old job back. That would definetly be one less thing to worry about. Moving is very stressful as it is , without having to worry about finding a place that accepts pets. I know here in Canada where I live , there are very many landlords that don't accept pets, ones that do are far and few before. If you end up moving back home, is there a family member you could stay with until you find a place? You could take an add in the paper to look for a landlord who is willing to take pets, sometimes if you go out a little out of the city, you might find a little house in the country with a bit of property, and the owners might not mind animals. Also have you tried negotiating with the bank, or new owners to see if they would be willing to keep you on as a tenant? Just some options to think about. I hope you find a solution soon . Good luck Hun, try not to worry too much, sometimes things just work out. Sending positive thoughts and prayers to you and your gang.

    So sorry for your bad news! I agree that foreclosures are not a quick thing and maybe the bank will be ok with you staying there. If not, they may have to help you find a rental that allows dogs. I would start talking this up right away! And pleeeeease tell your son THANKYOU for his service. All service men and women are my heroes!! I will say extra prayers tonight and every night for you both!!HUGS

    I would cut my losses and take it as a sign that you should try to get your old job back and move near where you have family as before. In my experience, banks do not care about foreclosed properties and are not smart enough to accept offers that are in both your best interests. If you make the effort I am sure everything will work out for the best. I actually offered for a house I thought was in pre-foreclosure. The bank did not even consider my offer. They had moved forward with the foreclosure and were working with a special broker. The house wound up selling for $55,000 less than my offer! Look for something free and clear!

    My husband and I are Realtors here in Florida and are Foreclosures agents for a number of banks. If you want to PM me I can try to give you the best information possible on what the process is in your areas and how long you might be able to stay in your house. it sounds like the foreclosure is in the latter stages if they are offering "cash for keys" Any addtitional information you can provide ( example, bank that is involved in the forclosure etc) will help me with giving you the best "advice" possible. You can be assured that anything you provide to me will be strictly confidential. I just want to help out a fellow EBN member. Ann

    I'm so sorry to hear what you are going through, but I too agree maybe it is a sign you need to move back home and then you will have company while your son is away. Moving is really not a nice thing to do exspecially when you are settled, I am sure in time you will come to the right decision for you. I will keep you in my prayers and hope everythings works our well for you and your furbabies.

    My heart goes out to you. So many things at once. You seem like such a wise and thoughtful person and I wish you all the very best at coming to the right decision for you and your Bullies. Be extra gentle with yourself for the next little while. My thoughts are with you.
    Big hugs.
