Angle, Rupp & Rupp can help you obtain any surplus funds.

When financial troubles arise, homeowners can lose their property to foreclosure. The bank can foreclose on the property when a homeowner is unable to make mortgage payments, or the local government can foreclose for failure to pay property taxes. Most homeowners are unaware that the foreclosure process can result in extra money being deposited with the clerk of court that belongs to the homeowner. In order to obtain this extra money, the homeowner must file a petition for surplus funds. The process is complicated and typically requires the assistance of an attorney.

Homeowners in this situation are entitled to the surplus funds generated by the foreclosure process. The attorneys of Angle, Rupp and Rupp can help you obtain what is rightfully yours.
