Also, go to the local post office and ask for the forwarding address the deadbeats left behind. Be really nice about it and act like you’re interested in finding your ‘friends’ and the clerk will probably tell you what you need to know.

I take it your mom sold them the house and took back the mortgage...

The recourse for defaulting on the mortgage is taking back the property, and there’s little else she can do.

They probably skipped because they had no money.

Do you have their SSNs? You could go online and run their credit report. That will surely reveal where they ‘landed’ eventually.

“worthless swine”

They’re probably `judgment-proof.’ I’m guessing she sold using a conditional sale contract/land sale contract.

Try this: http://www.courtreference.com/North-Carolina-Courts.htm

Maybe you can find another creditor, see if they have any information to share. You may be near the end of a long line.

Even if you find them it will probably cost more to pursue then its worth. Been there done that.

Ended up having person after person stop by the house because they were also owed money.

People like this know the system well, the time to do the background check is before they move in.

Did they steal anything? Make a police report.

Since they were technically the “owners” I don’t think they could be charged with theft.

ALWAYS ask for references- the bad ones will not even come back to give you any - the good ones will, but you dont even need to check them

also - send a certifed letter marked for them to return the letter to you WITH a forwarding address ( marked “return service requeted” ) it costs 75 cents extra I think

If they are running from the law though, I doubt they filed a forwarding address with the post office

Similar thing happened to me …

Sold a property … 2005 Palm Harbor triple-wide on 3+ acres … I held the mortgage.

Received a hefty down payment and several months of mortgage payments.

Then payments stopped.

Hired a real estate attorney. After third missing mortgage payment, we filed for foreclosure.

The day before the foreclosure hearing, the guy filed for bankruptcy.

The civil proceeding (foreclosure) was immediately halted. Hired a bankruptcy attorney. Waited nine months until the guy failed to abide to the payment schedule that was set up for him by the bankruptcy court, resulting in his case being dismissed.

Back to civil court … then, the day before the 2nd scheduled hearing, he filed for bankruptcy again! Another nine months of waiting, until they dismissed it for his failure to abide to payment schedule.

For the third time the foreclosure hearing was scheduled … and true to form, for the 3rd time, he filed for bankruptcy! This time the bankruptcy court refused him!

Foreclosure hearing was held and foreclosure sale was set. I was allowed by the court to bid up to the amount that was owed to me. No one bid higher and I got ownership back.

Meanwhile, the guy and his family were living in the house all this time! Over time I watched as they dismantled and removed a shed from the property and there was nothing I could do about it. I watched the 4-board fencing disappear and I could do nothing about it. Of course, he was also trashing the inside of the house during this period of time.

On the day he finally moved out (almost three years from the beginning of my actions against him) he loaded my 5-ton A/C unit and my refrigerator onto his trailer! I called the sheriff … there was nothing they could do … I’d have to take him to civil court (lol).

That night, although the power was turned off, there was a mysterious fire near the power box. Luckily the house didn’t burn down. I had to replace the wiring and make other repairs.

I also had to pay three years’ worth of back taxes. He had several code violations that I had to correct, and he had two liens. The lien holders tried to come after me without success.

My advice is: forget about finding the deadbeats … file for foreclosure and get the property back asap.

If there’s just junk laying around, why tear it down? floors and walls can be resurfaced a lot cheaper than new construction and the old construction is better anyway.

Yeah...that seemed to work out so well for you.

Charlespg stated the house is now vacant. I doubt that the former owners/tenants will appear in court for a foreclosure hearing. Thus, he would automatically win the case.

It took a while but I got my property back. I fixed it up, and sold it at a profit last year.

Are you suggesting that I should have handled the situation differently?

What would you have done?

No...it just struck me as ironic that you would advise him to get his property back asap after just telling the hair-raising tale of what you went through and how it took three years to get it done. Sorry.

The laws (and loopholes) are all geared toward the lowest common denominator. It's very difficult for land lords to kick someone out. It's against the law here in Missouri, to shut off the utilities. I was surprised to see that you had done that with no repercussions.

I don't believe 40-45 years ago landlords had any problems. You didn't pay?....you didn't stay and you would be removed one way or the other.

Congratulations though on finally getting things lined out and selling at a profit. You deserved it after what you went through!

btw...never heard of a triple wide.?

I didn't turn off his power, the utility company did for non-payment. He was running an extension cord to a neighboring property for electricity and a hose to their well for water.

He now resides in the hoosegow:

*OBTAINING OR ATTEMPTING TO OBTAIN A CONTROLLED SUBSTANCE BY FRAUD * TAMPERING WITH A WITNESS, VICTIM OR INFORMANT * BATTERY ON ELDERLY PERSON * BURGLARY OF CONVEYANCE * FIRST DEGREE PETIT THEFT * THIRD DEGREE GRAND THEFT
