8 years ago we sold a home. Fox wax the closing lawyer. The house needed permits. Before we could get the permits people (and I use that word lightly) wanted a rate before a certain month and we did them a favor by putting $25,000.00 in escrow until we got the permits. A lot of BS from the town of Hempstead and we still have no permits. The people moved out and the house was sold for cash. We still have not gotten out money nor does my lawyer provide me with any information. A month ago we were told a letter was being sent out but we have received nothing. They don't answer out calls at all. Phone number 516-222-0505.
