Hi Worcesterrealtor,

The second frequently has little to say in the matter of a foreclosure from the first and often gets nothing in either a short sale or a foreclosure. So to answer your question - not much - it's still foreclosed.

Does that help?

It does not appear to be. According to the registry of deeds it was last sold 06/22/2000.

Why do you ask?

Please call to discuss.

Hi Liljoe429,

I'm not sure about MA, but in CA since you have no lease and haven't paid rent technically you're trespassing. You would receive a 3 day to quit notice. You should have seen some type of notices placed at the property before the auction. Contact the company on them to find out your 'options'. You might also want to contact a Real Estate attorney.

Good luck.

You are, unfortunately between a rock and a hard place. As a Realtor and a Paralegal, I can tell you that you can try to draw up a quick document and submit it to the attorney for the bank -- asking permission to remove the snow and that you thereby absolving the bank of any liability. With a statement like that in writing in the hands of an attorney -- they may, on some occasions, allow you onto the property to clean the snow off the roof. But note this: should you be injured or should you cause, yourself, any damage to the property, you've already agreed to waive any rights you may have had.
In some cases, this may be warranted and in others it should be avoided (if indeed the attorneys for the bank were to accept you "DISCLAIMER" -- that's why they call it a disclaimer.
Other than that, you have no legal recourse should damages occur from now to the closing. That would be your only avenue, it is tentative, and carries substantial personal liabilities to you.

Yes, those so-called tax foreclosures are too good to be true. However, for tax foreclosures, call your local city or county government. Most jurisdictions put tax foreclosures up for sale once or twice a year. Your locality can tell you what the schedule is. The notices will also be published, generally in a newspaper serving the area. And probably posted on the jurisdiction's web site.

Without going into all the details, generally the tax foreclosure is only one small slice of the entire "pie" of debt on the propetry. And often the property has been allowed to go to tax foreclosure because it isn't worth anything--a landlocked sliver of land, or a chunk of land on an unbuildable flood plain.
