Q: 

foclosed not in the same condition as when i made the offer on it what do i do

A:  Kristin''s answer is correct! When purchasing foreclosures you need to make sure you have a buyers agent to assist you through these type of transactions. Foreclosures are normal transaction and it is important that you have someone to assist you through the decision and negotiation process. The other thing to bring up is that this damage is vandism and ask if the bank has filed a insurance claim with the forced place carrier and what is happening to those proceeds. I would still push back with the bank to indicate that it is not in the same condition and at least the proceeds from the insurance should be given to you. The other question is how much earnest money you have deposited and your williness to walk away from those funds. The likelyhood of the bank sueing you for specific...

Q: 

What''s the time frame in which doctors must refund any overpayment ..

A:  There may be no set rule, but my nurse wife says no longer than 30 days. they knew they had the surplus money and was just drawing interest off your money. i would deman the $233 as a refund, then you can pay whatever you owe, they may juggle the figures in order to keep your $233 dollars, so keep a watchful eye. Good point… I will be sure to inspect the statement my insurance sends. I''ll have to check with my wife, she takes care of the small details. It''s logistically easier to return the owed money in the fashion they did, versus writing and mailing a check, but the risk is it might not be repaid, or paid timely. I don''t think it''s a scam. I think its sloppy management of billing service. You could ask the doc''s manager....
