You will never see it......untill you get some answers from the GOV or the landlords lawyers...
: Two US marshals just showed up and apparently my apartment building has been seized by the US government! I'm really scared about what this could mean to me.
: The court order that they gave me is completely unhelpful. It does state that the case is "US v. Scott M. H____" who is not my landlord. I think he owns the units on the first floor (this is a coop) and I know he's in jail. I thought the govt. actually seized his portion of the property a long time ago, but the marshals said that this seizure is for whole building.
: I called the phone number listed on the court order, but got a machine. I also called my landlord (who had no idea about the seizure and asked me to fax him a copy of the court order). I just am concerned about the implications of this situation for my family and wondered whether I should seek legal advice. The court order said that I should send my lease (I'm month-to-month, but have all cancelled checks), and my rent check to the govt. My landlord says I should still send it to him. It's due today, and I don't know what to do.
