We were about to submit an offer on a property but then we googled the sellers’ names and found a court document from a couple years ago. Apparently the sellers were not making mortgage payments and had requested for the lender to re-negotiate their terms. According to the public court document, they claimed that they didn’t receive a packet of documents that was supposed to be delivered to them, and therefore they couldn’t re-negotiate the terms and couldn’t make the payments. They subsequently claimed that the bankruptcy could have been avoided if they had received this packet. They went to court suing the lender because they claimed that not receiving the packet caused them to go into bankruptcy. Three of their four claims were dismissed as frivolous. We saw that the house had been planned to go to auction as a foreclosure, but apparently they somehow managed to hang onto it. We are apprehensive about entering into a contract with sellers who perhaps filed a frivolous lawsuit while not making a good faith effort to meet their financial obligations. We are concerned that they may be litigious and might take unjustified legal action against us for various reasons, and we’re nervous about any unforeseen issues that may come up dealing with this situation. The house is in great shape otherwise and doesn’t seem like it’s a distress sale. Any advice as far as things to look out for or to consider in this situation if we decide to go forward with the offer?
