Burt Reynolds faces foreclosure lawsuit

Judge Gavel, Scales of Justice and legal books on the desk

A foreclosure lawsuit has been filed against veteran actor Burt Reynolds, alleging that he has not made a mortgage payment on his Florida vacation home in almost one year. The threat of foreclosure comes just a few years after Reynolds placed the mansion up for sale and subsequently removed it from the housing market due to the troubled economy.

Reynolds and his then-wife, Loni Anderson, purchased the waterfront property in 1994, receiving a $1.5 million mortgage for the home from Merrill Lynch Credit Corp. The 12,500 square-foot home is located in Hobe Sound, Florida, approximately 600 miles south of Atlanta. It is currently valued at $2.4 million.

In 2009, Reynolds placed the home, which is nicknamed ‘Valhalla,’ on the market for $8.9 million, but soon removed it after realizing that the home would be difficult to sell in the current economy. At that time, he said that he still planned to sell the home when the housing market improved.

However, Reynolds may no longer have that option. Recently, Merrill Lynch Credit Corp. filed a foreclosure lawsuit against Reynolds, alleging that Reynolds has not made a mortgage payment since September of 2010. Two other lenders, BankAtlantic and Great Eastern Mortgage, were also named in the lawsuit. According to court documents, BankAtlantic also holds a $750,000 mortgage on the property. It is unknown whether or how much Great Eastern Mortgage is owed.

The Florida property is not Reynolds’ primary home. He also owns a home in Little Rock, Arkansas, which is his homesteaded residence.

    They did an excellent job with my case. Jamie took the time to really listen and understand things. She delved into the details and was extremely knowledgeable and non judgmental. Very professional and they know what they are doing. Would definitely recommend!

    Dear Mr Gingold, There are so many reasons to be thankful for all you have done and will do. Anyone who has ever had unfavorable experiences with an attorney or the legal system will feel the trepidation that I experienced once I realized that my situation seemed hopeless. It was by chance and happily good luck that I decided to put my future and sanity into your hands. I was mortified at having to deal with my debts by claiming bankruptcy. I remember in our first meeting how you assured me that I was not alone and should not feel ashamed. And, anyone in this position obviously does not have money to spare and you were clear about all the costs and allowing me to pay according to my own ability to do so. You advised me in all aspects of the law, but also, you were at each meeting incredibly supportive and complementary of my personal and professional plans. Anyone else in this situation should feel blessed to have access to your expertise and support.

    I thought the process of filing bankruptcy was going to be a difficult one. However, Gingold & Gingold treated me with respect and dignity from the moment I walked through their door. I had the pleasure of working with Jamie. She is very responsive, professional, and knowledgeable. She took the time and listened to my every concern and handled each and every one of them to my satisfaction. My experience with filing bankruptcy under Gingold & Gingold's representation exceeded my expectations in a major way. They gave me such a peace of mind. I am very pleased with my decision of going with Gingold & Gingold to represent me when I filed Chapter 13 bankruptcy.

    Wow! I am finally out of debt and can say that I am debt free after completing my chapter 7 bankruptcy case with Gingold and Gingold. Mr dangled was very knowledgeable and direct with regard to my debt situation. there were no surprises and the case went as I was advised. The staff was also very helpful whenever I had a question. I will definitely recommend them in the future to my friends.

    I contacted getting old and getting old regarding some old tax debt and credit card debt that I needed to address and had been putting off. miss Irving in the office was very very nice and put me at ease. I met with Jaime Gingold. She was very nice and explained the procedure to me and what would be left owing to the Internal Revenue Service and the State of Georgia after my case was done. My case has now been completed and I am on my way to a new start. Thank you Gingold and Gingold for all of your help.
