In saying "it went back to the bank", it sounds as though the mortgage company did in fact purchase the home at the Sheriff sale. As noted below, the bank may postpone it, but if they already scheduled the sale, the only reason I can foresee the sale being postponed would be due to you being in a loan modification or short sale process that was not yet complete, or if you filed a bankruptcy thereby postponing the sale. If you are not currently in the process of a loan mod/short sale and have not recently filed a BK, then my assumption would be that the bank did in fact purchase it at Sheriff sale. The bank will not actually own the property or be in title in the State of MN for 6 months if it is a residential home that you currently occupy and is not agricultural. If the home is abandoned, the redemption period can be reduced to 5 weeks by the bank. At the expiration of the redemption, (i.e. end of 6 months from the Sheriff sale date) the bank will then own the home and be in title. You have the redemption period to redeem the home, i.e. pay the bank what you owe them which might include the option of selling the home if you can successfully sell AND close on the home receiving enough money to pay the bank what you owe them before the end of your redemption period. The best point of contact to confirm the status of the sale, as also mentioned below, will be the foreclosing attorney who handled the foreclosure sale for the bank. If you don't have documentation with such contact information, the county should be able to provide you with the attorney who handled the foreclosure if you cannot locate a record of your sale via the link offered in prior posts, assuming the property is in fact located in Hennepin county. You would need to contact the county where the property is located. Good luck! Let me know if I can be of further assistance to you.
