Lake Austin Properties I, Ltd. – Third Update

Fuel USA/Fuel Wealth Management and Affiliated Attorneys and Solicitors 

Lake Austin Reserve purchasers (in Grande Palisades, Avalon and Magnolia Woods) continue to receive emails from Fuel USA/Fuel Wealth Management Limited seeking to solicit clients for US solicitors and/or UK solicitors. As most Lake Austin Reserve purchasers are aware, Fuel USA worked directly with IAP/IAP Global and Lake Austin Properties I, Ltd., in an effort to profit from the mortgage business associated with the Lake Austin Reserve development. It appears that the Jim Moore related Inside Track entity, which is now in liquidation/bankruptcy, was a parent company for, or affiliate of, Fuel/Fuel USA and IAP/IAP Global.

Lake Austin Reserve purchasers can rest assured that other than with The Affinity Partnership, Ltd., Urban Thier & Federer, P.A., has absolutely no connection whatsoever, and has never had any contact with, Fuel USA, Fuel Wealth Management Limited, Leighton Hall Properties, LLC, Inside Track, Instant Access Properties/IAP, IAP Global, or International Progressions, or any of their officers or affiliates. Furthermore, Lake Austin Reserve purchasers who wish to exercise or learn of their legal rights and options should ensure that they are in contact with an attorney/U.S. solicitor who is truly independent and not affiliated with Lake Austin Properties I, Ltd., or with any entity associated with Lake Austin Properties I, Ltd. Urban Thier & Federer, P.A., has now represented well over 300 units (over 200 in Grande Palisades and over 100 in Avalon and Magnolia Woods) and has already fully and finally resolved 317 units.

Increasingly, Lake Austin Reserve purchasers are contacting Urban Thier & Federer, P.A., to inquire whether they can still enforce their legal rights under their respective Agreement for Sale/contract once they have signed the Lake Austin Properties I, Ltd./Leighton Hall Properties, LLC, Reaffirmation Agreement. This issue is partially addressed in one of our previous posts. In further answer, although signing the Reaffirmation Agreement certainly is not helpful to purchasers’ legal rights and may be argued by Lake Austin Properties I, Ltd., and/or Leighton Hall Properties, LLC, to constitute a waiver of certain rights, Urban Thier & Federer, P.A., is confident that it can assist most Lake Austin Reserve purchasers (in Grande Palisades, Avalon and Magnolia Woods) who signed the Reaffirmation Agreement. However, it is important to take prompt legal action in order to prevent the further loss (or potential loss) of legal rights due to the passage of time/expiration of the applicable statutes of limitations.

Urban Thier & Federer, P.A. encourages all purchasers to do their own independent due diligence and research. You can also learn more about Lake Austin Properties I, Ltd.’s Lake Austin Reserve Grande Palisades, The Avalon and Magnolia Woods Resort phases via these previous articles and updates:
