Gasgangrene, Home Buyer in 27517

What is likely to happen to the apparently abandoned home at 312 Nottingham Drive, Chapel Hill?

Asked by Gasgangrene, 27517 Tue May 25, 2010

This home is just down the street from our current rental and the yard is overgrown with the house quite obviously vacant and unmaintained. People are using the yard as a cut-through from the nearby golf course. I note that the owners filed for bankrupcy sometime last year. What sort of timeframe is typical for a home to go on the market in this type of situation, and is there usually anyone to contact if we wanted to make an offer?

Bankruptcy is a different animal and much more complicated than a foreclosure or even a short sale. You could check the Durham County tax records and try to contact the owner, but make sure you have the tax bill mailing address which may not be the same as the Nottingham Dr location. It probably won't do much good to send mail to the address of the home, but you could try. Most likely, the owner has a bankruptcy attorney and communications may need to go through them. Getting in touch with someone in bankruptcy can be challenging.
