If I had the address, I might be able to assist you. In cases of distressed sales, banks usually don't allow related to parties to purchase the property. However, if the deed has already been recorded and switched over to the bank, they may be willing to do so. But, above all, you would certainly need to disclose to the bank that you were a relative. I would consult a real estate attorney just to make sure about your potential legal impllcations. If I can be of further assistance, please feel free to contact me.
