Legal Question

Asked on: 8/18/12, 7:32 am

The Maryland State Highway Administration has scheduled a project which will require a temporary easement on our property. The most recent appraisal of the landscaping impacted by the easement is just above $10,000.00. The SHA representative advised us to accept just under $10K because our mortgage bank will seize any compensation above that $10k. I called the bank, and they told me that the bank never lays claim to such compensations. The SHA rep then insisted that banks, "were not to be trusted," and that we should still accept a lower offer from the state to insure that we can, "keep it all." What's the truth, and where should we go from here?
