I recently moved from Chester (monroe woodbury schools) to port jervis (minisink schools)

i miss Chester. the area was peaceful. i was off oxford road out there... nice area.

my commute to work is the same time as from chester, but was much more enjoyable coming from chester.
i def. prefer monroe woodbury schools over minisink.
i moved this way because minisink schools are "great" or "much better than monroe woodbury" they are NOT! i loved monroe woodbury CSD.

the taxes are high, but if you dont have 5 acres like some people (i had 3/4) and it was definitely affordable and worth it to have my children in an amazing school and good neighborhood.

i am moving back to chester after my lease is up.

This is a bit why did it take 3 1/2 months after an inspection to close and I have to ask was your agent with you when you did the walk through?

The question is who is "they"? If you have a mortgage "they" is probably your bank - the lien holder, but most likely the bank has paid your taxes since few banks want to lose the house to a tax sale. If you do not have a mortgage then "they" would be the county taking the house in lieu of taxes paid. Usually you can work out a payment schedule with the county. As Allan Erps says - if you have a mortgage trying to do a short sale may buy you time.

You can check with the county recorder's office; see if a default notice/lis pendens was filed, or simply ask any local agent...
