This isn’t particularly new, but they rubbed my nose in it, so I wanted to be sure you are aware & register with them. (Doesn’t that word just send a warm glow directly to your heart)
You need to register properties that have been issued a notice of default every calendar year. If you registered it in 2011, it needs to be reregistered in 2012 or pay $250 PER DAY AS A FINE.
If you had a NOD filed last year, the property reverted to you (& was sold or not) or reinstated you have until January 31, 2012 to upload supporting documentation so the staff can confirm/deny the status change through a verification process. (I promise I am not making this up!)
