Time Limit for Suit: Damages caused by a lawyer.?
In VA, is there a limited period of time when one can sue a lawyer for damages related to their negligence in a case?
My mother filed bankruptcy in 2006, and her lawyer mistakenly included one of my student loans in her case. She had explicitly told him not to do this, and he had agreed this would not be touched.
In the end, he did it anyway, and I have been stuck with a mark against me on my credit (more than 100 points) for what the bank called my default on the loan.
Is there any remedy possible? Can I demand this wrong be corrected? This has cost me higher interest rates on my mortgage and auto loan, etc.
I just purchased a home four months ago with 20% down on a convention (non FHA or VA)loan…My wife is joining the Army and we will obviously be moving to where ever they decide to put us in about six months, I don’t want to sell our home we just bought but at the same time I don’t want to move back into a rental after spending so long trying to get out of one. Can a guy in my situation qualify for a second mortgage with only 20% equity in my first home and having only about 10% for a down payment for a second home. My credit is only in the high 600s at this point as well. And if it only has to do with my debt to income ratio, what are the percentages that I will be limited to, both for the total house payments and also for everything together like my car payment? As far as my first home goes, I would like to rent it out while we are away but how do banks feel about that since I am sure I signed a contract saying I would not be renting it out when I bought it four months ago?
Thanks for the help.
