In Oregon you will find that when a NOD is issued a homeowner is notified in writing that the property will be foreclosed and an auction date is set. That date is part of the public record. The notice attached to the property will note the amount of arrears as of the foreclosure date and I believe the auction date is listed on that document. However, you don't always see that notice on properties...especially if the resident is still in the home....they rarely keep it posted on the building.
