Ask a lawyer about the mechanic's lean.  That sounds like a good start.  Really, anything that allows you to keep possession of the buses would be good.  Look for any way to delay them from having access to them until you can investigate all legal options.   As far as the politics goes, remember BofA is a corporation.  This is just another example of corporate psychopathic behavior which, for some reason, many believe should be protected as a right.  They feel that they have the right to act in any deceitful and ruthless way they want (it's not personal, it's just business, Vito), but try to make you adhere to the norms of fair play even though they think you are a fool for doing so.

When the first of the week comes around they will ask for the buses..   However, B of A most likely have there REPO hounds already on the case..    The Sheriff might come with the "hounds" to pick up the buses.    You need to get the meanest Pitbull Attorney that has pull with your local Sheriff.    This is a civil case..   To protect your rights you need to get in front of a Attorney as fast as possible. 

With most leases "it is up to you maintain the equipment"  Dollars already spent on the buses is pretty much water under the bridge.   

This is sad..   Setra send me a list of buses every month that are for sale.    You try to get a "leg up" and this happens..

Brian, I know the loans would not be forgiven, I just think they should have been allowed to fail!  (BOFA that is!)

Zero, as a rule the sheriff and any other cop folks will not get involved in a repo.  The ones that do are stupid!

Lin and Clifford always seem to beat me to the punch.

HIRE THE DAM LAWYER....do it now!  Maybe go to an attorney you know and trust and get a refferal to a lawyer that specializes in this sort of crap and make sure that he is described as the rottenest, most vile, deceitful and unscrupulous BASTARD on planet earth.....and make him your BASTARD.

Let the lawyer determine if the mechanics lean is the best way to go.  After all, he wouldn't try telling you how to maintain a SETRA....would he?  I do know that you are responsible for the care and protection of those buses even if you found them alongside the road.  I cringed when you said the "inspector"for the bank was out and you allowed him to inspect.  THE BANK IS THE ENEMY and you should let your attorney decide what and how you will coperate.  If that Puke says they all had brand new tires and will swear to it, and he will swear to anything, then you could find yourself installing brand new tires to avoid a law suit.

You might consider assigning a large portion of any tort settlement to the lawyer. Tort being a recovery of damages that you endured as a result of B of A's unnecessary legal actions against you.  Not just the repairs they tried to help themselves to and the interruption of revenue generating business where you EARN a living, but the sleepless nights and Tums etc.  You do stuff for two reasons....firstly because you can and that seems to be the guiding rule of their behavior and secondly, and most importantly, it teaches them a lesson should they be open to learning.

Now, without Tort law you are grasping at legal straws.  B of A, all banks actually, contribute a pile of cash to the cause of "Tort Law Reform".   All they seem to talk about is how unfair it is that an attorney gets rich and that they would save money and be able to pass the savings along to the consumer.  The law is the law....you don't want sued....then don't take out the wrong KIDNEY or amputate the wrong fracking LEG and don't take actions because you have a barn full of legal staff on retainer and can crush the little guy.   I wish to not sacrifice my right to sue your @$# off if you damage me or mine and that some creep might not be able to game the system is absolutely no consolation.  You think they are out of control now you just watch them if they get their way with the tort law rewrite/abolishment.....just watch.  Then all you will hear from the cretins that vote this stuff is "see Martha, the little guy just can't win".  And Bubba Billy Bob Jim Jack will be correct at that point.

My heart felt disappointment at your predicament, BK.  Hire the Prick and get some sleep knowing that all that can be done will be done in your behalf.

Your Friend,
John

Just to add something to what John said.  One of my daughters is a lawyer.  She was formerly with a large, expensive firm that thought a case with a $20,000. retainer was just too nickel and dime for them.  When someone she knew needed an attorney in a business matter, she once recommended a guy that had been her adversary.  She said that he was always on the edge of what he could get away with and was considered a real pest by the large firms.  He would cause them huge amounts of nuisance which they, of course, would bill to their client.  The reason she recommended him is that she said that it probably was the only way that a small, one man office could take on a large legal team.  Look for a pit bull here.

And further more.....99% of the "one man law firms" FAIL quickly.  If that guy was making it "alone" he was somebody special.  At least according to my law professor and the many lawyers I used to drink with a couple days a week.  Make sure she gives you his name.  I agree....almost.  Make it a rabid Pitt Bull with a track record.

Good luck again,

John

Any conclusion to this topic?  Did BOA repo the buses this week?

I don't understand why BOA wants to rent more space to park non-performing assets.  The payments were being made.  BOA could have just as easily adjusted the name on the agreement instead of taking back something they may lose money on selling.

come on BK.  Tell us the jerks got outdone and you still have the agreement that allows you all to make money and pay back BOA. 

You just clinched it for me.  i was about to open a BOA account and now i wouldn't touch it with a 10 foot pole.  and to think our money went to save their sorrys A$$es.

I wouldn't put all the blame on BOA those are probably recourse loans and Setra may want the buses back and telling BOA to call the loans anyway possible.
I hope it works out for BK and his family 

good luck

"Fred, I was not trying to take away your first amendment rights.  Just trying to make a point.  I will go bow out of the discussion.'

Jim, this certainly wasn't a shot at you. I was just suggesting that we, as observers, can say whatever we want because its only our opinion and we are not affected. I was more concerned that Bryce has to be careful what he says as he is the one involved.

As for my first amendment rights, I'm not sure I have any as I'm a Canadian. But I can still have an opinion (no matter how outrageous it might be)LOL
