I can't answer this, but I was wondering the same thing. I still live in the house, and the two "owners" abandoned the house. Since the roof is leaking all into the house, down to the first floor, I stopped paying the mortgage. Anyway, I basically got scammed into moving into this house. I was made an offer from the owner that she would pay half the mortgage every month, and fix any major repairs that need to be done.
I had to pay the other half, and all the rest of the bills, and pay for/do all the smaller repairs.
Well, she lied. She left before I moved in. The other owner left like 10 months ago or something like that. So I haven't been paying their mortgage, and it's up for auction October 10th. I been looking for a new place all this time, and didn't find anything I liked enough to move out of this free house. But now it's going up, so from why I'm seeing is I should even still have time after the auction?
My main question is, if the house is already going up for auction in less than 2 months from now, does that first owners name still have anything to do with the property? She is telling her daughter that she is going to come and take my fridge and some other stuff this weekend. She's been out of this house for over 4 years, and abandoned all the stuff she left here, which is all pretty much JUNK.
Can I change the locks and board up the windows, and deny her access, and if need be call the police?
Because I know she thinks she can just do whatever she wants, but I don't know if she is aware that the house is going up for auction yet.
That does mean that the mortgage is dissolved right, and she has no rights to the house or anything in it?
The fridge in question, actually broke down a couple times and I repaired it myself, and paid for all new parts. That's my fridge, even her daughter says so. I mean I keep food and juice in there for her granddaughter.
