Hi there-

Is this the listing you are referring to?

If so, you should work directly with an agent who can help you learn more about that specific property (and probably will know a lot about similar properties in the area). To find an agent, just click on the yellow button on the property's listing and you will be able to start a dialogue.

Please let me know if you have any questions or if I can help with anything else. I am happy to be a resource for you. Good luck with the search!

Hi Mayetta

B E Taylor was a bigger developer in the 1940's and 1950's. Most of the subdivision are located in the western part of Detroit and parts of Redford Township. Parts of Brightmoor are B E Taylor subdivisions.

It's not unusual for taxes to be delinquent if the owner is behind in mortgage payments. Call the City or the County Clerk and ask if there has been a "Lis Pendens" filing. This is public record so they will have to tell you. A word of caution, though. Letters from attorneys don't mean much. It's possible the owner has brought the loan current and they are just still on someone's mailing list. it is also possible they are negotiating with the bank to do a loan modification. Unless you get a notice directly from the Sheriff posted on your door I wouldn't panic. And even then, when banks are negotiating loan modifications, they often wait until the very last minute to put off the Sheriff's Sale. It is far more likely that, if the owner cannot negotiate a modification, they will put the house up for sale as a short sale.

And, even if ALL that happens, you may have rights as a renter. Contact your local office of Community Affairs or an attorney and find out what your rights and options are as a tenant. New Jersey has some of the best protections in the country for tenants. Here, if the owner is foreclosed on, the 'new owner', usually the bank, has to honor the lease as long as the tenant is in compliance, until the end of the lease term. Tenants here cannot be evicted or even offered cash for keys in these situations. It has a tendency to make the banks much more willing to negotiate modifications and short sales AND it protects tenants.

you must go to the city to find who actually has the "deed" to see, one if it's avalable for an individual to purchase, but to also see if it's been demolished for a specific zoninng. If it's titled to a bank, simply call the bank and ask who they have representing that address. It is most likely been demolished by the city for safety/liability purposes, but the city assesor will definately know who the home belongs to.

If you have further questions call us, we deal with bank foreclosures every day.
