Contact your realtor and he can pull the ownership records for you. You can also visit your local assessor's office to check on the ownership. The information should be public.

You can also call the foreclosure attorney that was assigned to carry out the foreclosure. They can confirm if the foreclosure took place. Was it your home? Or are you interested in the home. With an address I can probably find that information out for you.

If the auction date has passed you can count on the property having been sold....either to a new independent buyer or the lender that held the note. Generally, if the property is uncontested, the bank will purchase the property and then clear the title and sell it as a "foreclosure."

If you had interest in this home, all is not lost because it will likely resurface as a foreclosure. So it would be advisable to identify a realtor to monitor the market for you and inform you when it becomes available.

Hope this information is helpful.

Good luck,
