My dad has a lawyer that has practiced in Oregon, though he is in Washington now. He has informed me that they can only begin the eviction process when they discover I’m still here on Thursday. So, I need to pack — but perhaps I don’t have to pull all-nighters to get ‘er’ done.

Moreover, I did a little research myself and noticed that the trustee’s letter claims the sale took place. I looked at the foreclosure laws and read this:

The sale itself is required to be at the location specified in the notice of default, and must be sold to the highest bidder who has cash or cash equivalency on hand to give the trustee. The sale is required to take place between the hours of 9 a.m. and 4 p.m.

When I told the lawyer that I was present at the sale and no one showed, he was amazed. He made sure that I was at the right spot — which I was. I checked with the people inside the courthouse to make sure this is where foreclosures took place. He double-checked that I was there on time — which I was. I arrived at 10:45. Tomorrow, I need to find witnesses to verify I was there. I hope the County Clerk remembers me. He told me to construct a letter stating this right away — to send it to the trustee and the bank. I’ll quote him:

The bank is going to sh— when they find out the sale never took place.

I better get busy.
