Search the essex county registry of deeds and follow the chain of title. If this to much for you or you are not sure how to do it contact a local real attorney and they can do a title search if needed and tell you what your best course of action is if there is any. if you need an attorney feel free to call me and I will be happy to refer you to one.
Thank you,
Gene Clements

Lorrie, First things first. Go to and see who is the current deed holder. Try to contact them. Once the bank takes over a property they sometimes sell them immediately to another lender. Good luck with your endeavor! ... more

Dear Louie - If you can prove they never served you they have to start the process again. I agree with the others that you really need an attorney who is expert in foreclosures. Alternatively, you could try talking to the bank--they know that if you were not properly served they need to start over and, since you are up-to-date, they may be willing to reconsider. Good luck--I hope you get to keep your house. Ellen

Hello Emmitt- I have some experience in this kind of thing, and own a couple 3 families. If you'd like to talk a little, please contact me directly.
What kind of financing do you have in place? Do you have the $10K or so that they will need at the day of the auction? Then you usually have only 30 days for the rest. That is tough in today's mortgage world.

Thanks, and good luck,

Ken L.

It keeps getting postponed most likely due to the efforts by the current owner to save the property. The lender is asserting their right to foreclose as they should in the eventuality that the work out doesn't come through.

I don't have any specific knowledge of this property, the lender or attorney involved. When in doubt you should consult with the attorney or auctioneer handling the auction.
