Taking over payments is not a possibility. However, you can definitely purchase a "foreclosure" or any other type of sale. To accomplish this you will need to make your own loan arrangements. At this time, today's foreign buyers are being required to provide a deposit of between 30 and 40 percent of the sale price.
Most banks involved with foreclosures will require the deposit identified above and proof of funds by your bank or lending institution.
