My gut tells me it's Bull but has anyone else been through a similar situation?</p><p>Title objections:</p><p><strong>#1 The last shown owner of the mortgage foreclosed upon was BAC Home Loan LP it is believed BAC Home Loan is a subsidiary of Bank of America but a showing of record will have to be made indicating Bank of America's right to bring this action.</strong></p><p>if BAC Home Loan is owned by Bank of America why would this be a problem?</p><p><strong>#2 There was a deed recorded in 1958 but the person really died in 1950 and the record will need to be amended.</strong></p><p>busy work for the lawyer?? and how the heck did the lawyer find out when the guy died??? LOL</p><p><strong>#3 Land Patent from 1854 shows original deed had a clerical error and indicated the wrong township (township 89 instead of 90)</strong></p><p>I think the statute of limitations has run........</p><p>Anyhow BOFA does not want to pay and I want to buy as-is BUT my realtor is upset now and doesn't even return emails/calls and I just want to know can I buy the house as-is? My realtor is saying it's against their ethics??? LOL</p><br \><br \>0 replies Sun, 19 Oct 2014 22:07:00 GMT http://www.zillow.com/advice-thread/Does-Title-Abstract-Have-to-be-Corrected/563506/ 2014-10-19T22:07:00Z forgot user name and password http://www.zillow.com/advice-thread/forgot-user-name-and-password/562904/ I created an account and have lost user id and password.... home is posted but I'm unable to change or edit or claim or cancel anything...How can I retrieve my info ?<br \><br \>1 reply Wed, 15 Oct 2014 01:45:00 GMT http://www.zillow.com/advice-thread/forgot-user-name-and-password/562904/ 2014-10-15T01:45:00Z How do I change the order of my photos? http://www.zillow.com/advice-thread/How-do-I-change-the-order-of-my-photos/556201/ 6 replies Sat, 23 Aug 2014 20:59:00 GMT http://www.zillow.com/advice-thread/How-do-I-change-the-order-of-my-photos/556201/ 2014-08-23T20:59:00Z how to edit a listing? http://www.zillow.com/advice-thread/how-to-edit-a-listing/562641/ i can't seem to edit or claim my my listing.<br \><br \>2 replies Mon, 13 Oct 2014 01:39:00 GMT http://www.zillow.com/advice-thread/how-to-edit-a-listing/562641/ 2014-10-13T01:39:00Z Why is my home estimated less than others on same street? http://www.zillow.com/advice-thread/Why-is-my-home-estimated-less-than-others-on-same-street/555612/ I live on Hammontree Cir.
