To use your analogy, it’s the equivalent of the company who bought your mortgage debt from a bank for pennies on the dollar taking ownership of the house (you no longer owe the mortgage debt) but letting you live in it and instead pay them rent. They can keep the house and collect your rent or they can then sell the house and the new buyer can decide what to do with you as the tenant.
What makes this a kick in the plums…imagine you owe $300k on the mortgage and this company takes over the mortgage debt for $30k, forces you into bankruptcy, and then owns a $300k home for ~30k.
Sound like you either need a better sugar daddy/mama and/or better lawyers
Not sure either but I think it might be in the same secret bank account where my 10K in Avaya stock is hiding. Never to be seen again. Least not by me...
