Reynaldo Maestas didn’t realize there was a problem with the title to his home until a neighbor casually mentioned it to him in February of 2015.
“My neighbor who was the caretaker for my place, he alerted me to it,” Maestas said Friday. “He said, ‘Hey, do you know we don’t have clear title to our houses?”
“I said, ‘No. It can’t be. I have a title policy. I’ve been paying on the house,” Maestas recalled.
That’s when Maestas’ nightmare began.
