No. They don't have to record a lien release. If they are junior to the foreclosing lender, they are wiped out. Plain and simple.

To update this answer I am seeing the average days on market for a home in promontory is 35 days on the market. There were 2 special circumstance escrows in the region that radically change the numbers if included. There are always going to be one property out there with a 200 days on market because of court issues, bank issues or whatever. I conclude that as a whole if you look at all of 2014 the days on market in this very desirable area is 35 when its not a traditional sale. ... more

Jill BERNI- Realtor answered:
While trying the FSBO route is tempting, please keep in mind that this is a
very difficult profession and you should strongly consider hiring an agent
who has been selling homes for many years and has seen the changes
the market has gone through and understands this is not a 40 hour, 5 day
per week job.
I live in Lake Hills and we are sort of "off the usual track" as far as
buyers go. Its great living back in here amongst the wildlife but you need
a professional to bring the buyers in.
I urge you to reconsider.

My experience: My PG&E bill is 500% more on average, yes I said 500%. HOA definitely more expensive, add on Melaroos, just be prepared that while you might be saving on the mortgage payments, you will more than make up for it in Melaroos and utility bills. ... more

Realtor in El Dorado Hills answered:
You can change anything about a Home, except where it is at.
People have chose to build mufti-million dollar homes there since the last millennium. The magnificent sunsets, are only exceeded by the copious amounts of peace and quiet.
Consider the Full-Spectrum.of tenability and livability in these Stone-quiet Neighborhoods.
Lake View, of no Lake view ?
Ask yourself these questions to help you decide whether you’re ready for a home that’s larger or in a more desirable location. If you answer yes to most of the questions, it’s a sign that you may be ready to move.
1. Have you built substantial equity in your current home? Look at your annual mortgage statement or call your lender to find out. Usually, you don’t build up much equity in the first few years of your mortgage, as monthly payments are mostly interest, but if you’ve owned your home for five or more years, you may have significant, unrealized gains.
2. Has your income or financial situation improved? If you’re making more money, you may be able to afford higher mortgage payments.
3. Have you outgrown your neighborhood? The neighborhood you pick for your first home might not be the same neighborhood you want to settle down in for good. For example, you may have realized that you’d like to be closer to your job or live in a better school district.
4. Are there reasons why you can’t remodel or add on? Sometimes you can create a bigger home by adding a new room or building up. If you’re simply not interested in remodeling, then moving to a bigger home may be your best option.
5. Are you comfortable moving in the current housing market? If your market is slow, finding a buyer may take longer, but you’ll have more selection and better pricing as you seek your new home.
6. Are interest rates attractive? A low rate not only helps you buy a larger home, but also makes it easier to find a buyer. There are still down payment assistance programs available to help First Time buyers buy your home.
7. Can you afford a Higher Mortgage Payment? The fact is with housing prices and interests dropping, you may be able to have a larger home with a similar payment to what you have now.
If you've answered Yes to the majority of these questions, your next step is to talk to a lender and find out what you can qualify for. A Realtor typically has Mortgage lenders they can refer you to. After a Pre-qualification, talk to a Realtor about what larger homes in your desired area are selling for to determine if you can make a move up now. This information is usually offered Free.

Not sure if you've found your answer but I would recommend pulling a title report for both houses/lots. It will show on there any easements that the property may have tied to it.

John Arendsen answered:
I would borrow the money from a friend or a relative. If they are concerned about security offer them a position on the property as collateral until and pay them off once you've settled with your Trustee and have possession of the property. This is not a difficult situation and you certainly shouldn't let it threaten your position on the property unless it is upside down or underwater. ... more
