You can look at the county public trustee site to see if the property is in foreclosure

I did a quick look and did not see that unit listed on the public trustee website (but 747 WEST 96TH AVENUE #3-10 THORNTON, CO 80260 was listed a past foreclosure).

Even if there is no filed foreclosure it is possible there is a distressed sale. You could ask your landlord why she is selling and if the new owners would consider honoring the lease.

Regarding your options, you really would need to talk to an attorney (at your expense or perhaps find free legal resources) and look at the specifics of your situation and lease.

FYI -- this property isn't for sale. IF it does go to foreclosure the bank will want "Fair Market Value" -- what a ready, willing and able buyer is willing to pay in this market. Keep in mind we are in a very HOT seller's market right now. Most homes are selling way above list price with multiple offers. Don't plan on getting a "deal". If you're interested in buying in the Denver metro area, I'd be happy to create a search for you in the MLS. ... more

Why is my property listed on your website as a foreclosure? Because my full address is listed there almost every day people are coming over to the house bothering my parents and myself, taken pictures and as far as asking if they can come in, is there a back yard, is there room to do an extension in the back of the house. Very rude people who get mad and say nasty things because we tell them to go away. The property is not foreclosed nor is it for sale. Please move it from your website, it's causing so much problems. 208 Minerva street, San Francisco, Ca 94112 - We use Nationstar to pay are monthly mortgage. I spoke with someone at Nationstar to report this problem and they said that this listening is illegal. Please take it down. ... more

Dan Tabit answered:
Since your question is regarding Foreclosures, my best guess is that you are looking at a RealtyTrac lisitng, which probably isn't actually for sale. A local agent can research what may be found about the property, but most of these usually have only partial addresses.
RealtyTrac doesn't sell homes, they sell information which a great agent can provide for free. The value of the information is greater if you are a full time cash investor who attends foreclosure auctions. For the personal buyer, requiring a mortgage, the value is very little.

Tracy Shaffer answered:
HOA is always the loose cannon. I've had clients who have done a deed in lieu and not paid HOA dues and it became a big mess. My recommendation would be to stay current with them until the property is no longer in your name. It will save you so much headache later because it's not like a bk where everything just gets wiped out.
Good luck!
And if you decide you'd like to sell your condo before foreclosure or deed in lieu, I'd be glad to help.

Robert McGuire answered:

Are you referring to an inspection or an appraisal. Either way, you need to make arrangements for the utilities to be turned on to get the information you need. An FHA appraiser will require that the utilities are on so he can appraise the property according to FHA guidelines.

Fred Herman answered:
I'm sorry your having a problem, but REO properties are purchased "as is." You stated that the HOA was contacted. and they said they would review the damages. that's a very long way from a commitment to make the repairs.

The HOA only cover some items, not everything. In general everything from the walls/ceiling inward is your responsibility.
you didn't specify the source of the leak: roof, unit above yours, pipe in the ceiling???

anyway drywall is not an expensive item. Please consider that your time, efforts and aggravation to get someone else to pay to fix the ceiling for you are not worth the cost of fixing the ceiling yourself.

If you feel strongly about the HOA paying for the repair, have the ceiling fixed. Then send the bill certified to the HOA. If you don't get a response or if you get a response refusing to reimburse you, you may be able to file a claim against the HOA in small claims court. BUT CHECK WITH YOUR ATTORNEY ABOUT FILING A CLAIM IN SMALL CLAIMS.

Keep in mind that a claim filed against the HOA, while not specifically filed against any individual, may ruffle the feathers of some/all board officials and reg members as well. This is yet another reason why it my not be worth it.

good luck

Yes, Oliver is best, but not cheap. have your agent contact the Realtor hot line (no charge). Also, HindmanSanchez would be less costly if they're not the attorney of record for your building. ... more

This is a complicated question with no standard answer that a Realtor could answer correctly or with certainty for you. We as Realtors are really not authorized to give legal advice, and expecially in a sensitive and complicated case such as this. I wish you all the best in getting this resolved.
