Your post is confusing. If the attorney did the forcl on the 1st, he’s got nothing to do with the 2nd. The 2nd should have been wiped out, no? Or hasn’t this gone to sale yet?
If it hasn’t gone to sale the title company missed it, yes, but since nothing has closed, they have now found it, and you are dealing with it.
Yes, negotiate a small pittance for the 2nd and then they sign a release of lien and they get their money. Title company should be able to tell you the steps involved. Don’t pay before they sign the release, which should satisfy the title company.
