Indiana Supreme Court
Neu, Elizabeth A. Neu, Wells Fargo Bank, N.A. v. Brett Gibson
Civil. Affirms trial court’s finding that the Neus were not entitled to interest, attorney fees, and costs and that
they could not foreclose on their own home or force a sheriff’s sale of the property. When the Neus purchased their
home from John Nowak, the title search did not reveal a mortgage held by Gibson. The Supreme Court also finds the Neus had
other options than foreclosing on the home or forcing a sheriff’s sale: they could have sold the house without court
action, or taken the matter up with the title insurance company that didn’t find the Gibson mortgage when they bought
