OLAKUNLE OYEBANJO v. LAKESIDE REO VENTURES, LLC

Real property — Foreclosure on right of redemption — Need for hearing

This case arises from the tax sale auction of a property, which was owned by Olankunle Oyebanjo, appellant, and located at 2008 Browns Lane (the “Property”). After purchasing the Property at the tax sale, Woods Cove LLC filed a complaint in the Circuit Court for Prince George’s County to foreclose Mr. Oyebanjo’s right of redemption. Lakeside REO Ventures LLC, appellee, was later substituted as a party in place of Woods Cove. On June 27, 2014, the circuit court entered an order foreclosing Mr. Oyebanjo’s right of redemption.

On appeal, Mr. Oyebanjo, an unrepresented litigant, asserts one issue for our review, which we have rephrased, as follows: Did the circuit court err in failing to hold a hearing on Lakeside’s motion for a final judgment foreclosing the right of redemption?
