There were at least 14 lis pendens announcing commencement of foreclosure proceedings filed yesterday – I say at least 14, because I was only looking for properties that clients of mine might find of interest. I won’t say which those are – I take care of my clients first – but 29 Byfield Road, that huge spec project, seems to be under the gun before it’s even finished. There are a couple on Sunshine that aren’t doing well and we can probably guess why that poor bastard on Stanwich committed suicide a few weeks ago, too. Sad times.
One note to the owners of Druid Lane: if you want to delay things, have your lawyer check the notice of lis pendens. It recites that the property is “in the County of New London”. Probably not fatal, since they did manage to record it in the right place, but it’s probably worth a month of delay while your lawyer asserts the claim of improper service and loses.
