ORLANDO, Florida — OLG attorney Sophia Dean earned a positive ruling following a recent highly-contested hearing, in which an Orange County judge ruled in favor of Dean’s client, and subsequently awarded $42,000 to them.
Following a tedious and extensive legal process, the judge ruled that 63 days is three days too late for a second mortgage to claim surplus funds.
“Our client’s home was foreclosed on, and the property sold for more than the home was worth, leaving a surplus of funds in the court registry,” Dean explained. “The homeowners had a second creditor which claimed it was owed the money. Well, they were three days past the required statue to ask for the money. They argued to claim the monies, but, after a contested hearing, the judge ruled in my favor and awarded the money to our clients.”
