Answer: Yes, there was a firm commitment from First Premium Funding out of Holbrook, New York and Elite Financial.

Question: Is it true that M&F did not list all addresses on the foreclosure sale?

Answer: Yes. M&F did not list all addresses. In fact they only listed one address(545 N. Trade St.) when in actuality the property consists of 2 separate buildings(545 N. Trade St and 550 N. Liberty) and a parking lot(538 N. Liberty). Totally 3 separate addresses. The incorrect listing of the property by M&F has raised numerous legal and ethical questions.
