Foreclosure

questions & answers

Question: I live in a condo complex. One of the other owners has been storing property in a storage bin which is not her own. She appropriated it when it went into foreclosure. The current owner wants that storage bin. What can we do? The lock is still on and the woman (a lawyer, by the way) refuses to remove it.

Answer: Is there a condominium association? That would be the first place I would start, by making a complaint to them and/or bringing it up at a meeting. The condominium rules likely can be invoked to stop her. Failing all else, I would probably call the police and tell them she put a lock on someone else's bin. They may tell you "it's a civil matter", but it is worth a shot. If they say that, go back to step 1. Worst-case scenario, she would have to be sued for trespass and/or conversion. Best of luck.
