CREDITOR FRAUD on short sale/lease back or USURY? - Posted by JDenney

Bill,
In that article you mention buying the property and allowing the former owner to stay on as a tenant. Does simply not allowing an option to buy avoid the potential usury and/or other equitable issues? Wouldn’t the investor still run into problems when he had to evict the former owner? Thanks in advance…

I am purchasing a pre-forclosure by short sale payoff. I am willing to do a 3 year lease purchase with the previous owner who will remain in the home. How risky is this from a legal standpoint? I heard from some local investers (they didn’t remember all the details) that this may be construed as creditor fraud or possibly a usurious rate loan? Am I paranoid or is there reason for caution? If so, what can I do to protect myself.

Thank You, Jeff

What state are you in? I know people from California have posted here in the past indicating you may have something to be concerned about.
