I apologize we have false foreclosure information listed on our home details page. This data is provided to us from Zillow foreclosures and we currently do not have the ability to edit or remove the information that they are sending us.

Upon checking your property on Zillow, the foreclosure status is already removed. Once the status is removed from Zillow, it will automatically update to Trulia after 24-48 hours.

Thank you for using Trulia!

Most likely you do npt get access until you close and you own it. If it is occupied, then you may not get access until you evict the occupant.

If there is a written, executed contract then no. They can't cancel. If it's just a verbal acceptance - yes. Everything needs to be reduced to writing in order to create a binding contract.

It's been pretty darn cold, over the last several weeks, here in greater Chicagoland. I'm going to assume that since you left your house in August... you probably didn't continue paying the heating bill, and that resulted in burst pipes (a foreseeable consequence in this region).

I'm also going to guess that the bank is going to be none too happy to hand over a deed in lieu, only to discover a seriously damaged home... when they were anticipating a 'move in condition' home.

I also have to question whether your insurance will even cover the damage, if you didn't keep the heat on ... or lowered it so that it caused the pipes to burst.
