When you finance a home, the Lender keep some money in your escrow account for property taxes and insurance of that property. And yes, even when the homeowner stop making the mortgage payment the Bank still have to pay the property taxes and homeowners insurance.

Yes, in most cases, when a mortgage is involved the bank is paying the taxes. They will also pay, or implement a homeowners insurance property, in case there is a problem that arises. If you need assistance in the foreclosure process and purchasing a home, please contact me.

As they want to prevent the property from becoming a tax seizure, they will often become the taxpayer even when they do not yet have title to the property.

Most cases yes. Tax leins can subordinate a first mortgage, Thereby placing the mortgage company in a inferior position
