Via public records I can see that the foreclosure process began in June of 2012. I can see that not much else has happened since then and I am 99% sure my landlord has written the building off and walked away.
Looking at the public records I saw something that perplexes me and I'm hoping someone can help me understand what it means. There is a "Date of Sale" listed as January 24, 2013 (two weeks from now) and an auction company listed. Is this the date that the building will be auctioned and either sold or reverted back to the lender?
I've called the lender and can't get information because they can't pull up anything without the mortgage loan number because it was a loan purchased from another bank so the name and address won't pull it up in their system. The lender was very helpful and I faxed in paperwork so that they know there are official tenants living in this building so they can proceed accordingly (ie: not serve notice to the landlord and then change the locks - because I'm not confident he will tell us if the bank serves him an eviction and I don't think our lease, though legal, is listed anywhere but on the paper copies each of us holds).
I can't seem to locate any court cases with my landlord and the foreclosing bank, the best information I can get is from the Recorder of Deeds web site and that is vague, when I called their office and asked what the "Date of Sale 1/24/12" meant the woman (who clearly had trouble having enough energy to exist as a person) said to me, "I don't know." When I asked, "Is there someone else who may know?" She said, "I don't know."
I've also called the auction company (*****) but there is no way to speak to a person there, it's all automated information that basically tells people to show up for the auction on the date listed and have a cashier's check.
I also posted this over in the foreclosure forum, but I'm hoping maybe some fresh eyes might have that bit of information I'm looking for, or a tip for how to get it!
