    "Ryan & Keith genuinely care about their clients."

    Ryan McCreay genuinely cares about his clients. He patiently outlined the timeline in obtaining this overage, along with ...

    - Gerard P.
    "Ryan and team were very professional and empathetic regarding probating my sister's estate."

    They were caring and kind all the way through the process. I highly recommend them to anyone entitled to claim leftover funds from foreclosure or who need to probate an estate for a loved one. Here is a picture of myself and my lovely sister, Karen!

    - Shirley H.
    "After my Mom passed away and her house was foreclosed on, Ryan of Conscious Dealz helped me get the excess funds from the foreclosure."

    He told me the amount I would receive at the beginning of the process. He also told me that I would never have to step inside of a court room, which I didn't want to due to the complex challenges of probate court. Ryan and his team worked very hard for me.

What Are Excess Proceeds?

Excess proceeds, also known as surplus funds, are the amount of money left over when a property is sold at a foreclosure auction for more than the total amount owed to the creditor or lender. These funds belong to the former property owner. However, claiming these funds involves navigating through legal complexities, which is where we come in.

Our Expertise

Our firm boasts a team of seasoned attorneys with extensive experience in excess proceeds law in Texas as well as Texas Probate Law. We understand that after a foreclosure, times can be challenging, and the prospect of accessing additional funds can provide much-needed financial relief. Our network of lawyers across the U.S. specializes in helping people reclaim money lost in foreclosure and tax sales, or left unclaimed with government agencies. They work with property owners, creditors, and locators. The world of reclaiming lost or unclaimed money can be complicated and overwhelming, but our lawyers are here to recover what is rightfully theirs. 

Our expertise includes:

  • Identifying Eligibility: Not all foreclosed properties will result in excess proceeds. We start by determining if your case is eligible.
  • Filing Claims: We guide you through the entire process of filing a claim for excess proceeds, ensuring all legal requirements are met.
  • Negotiating with Creditors: Often, securing excess proceeds involves negotiations with creditors or other claimants. Our attorneys are skilled negotiators who protect your interests.
  • Court Representation: If your claim for excess proceeds goes to court, our team will represent you, advocating for your right to the funds.
  • Probate Services: When a borrower is deceased, then the family may claim the excess proceeds on behalf of the Deceased relative.  Our extensive knowledge in estate and probate law is also an asset and provided to you at no cost.
