Hi Linda,
What block are you referring too? Can you reference a nearby street off Broadway?

There is a dog park across the bridge in Portland, about 3 miles away and Hinckley Park is at the end of the Street. Willard Beach is about 2 miles away.

Contact the bank that owns the home. If they plan on putting it on the market they need to be aware of the fact that you are the tenant.

Since no local answers yet--any agent can help you--contact any realty office(s) and inquire or contact any local Trulia contributor(s) directly and ask.

Trulia does not list lease properties. your best ooption is to contact a local agent to explore this for you. You might also check out craigslist for this type of property.

Hi Susan,

First and foremost I hope you are enjoying your first Holiday Weekend in your new home! Your question is not uncommon. I am assuming you escrowed your taxes and if so all you simply need to do is contact your lender and find out where to mail the tax bill so they can pay it. Many lenders have an area on their website that provides this information because it is so common. Also, the person that handled your loan should be able to help as well. If you want to email me the name of your lender I can probably get that information for you.

Again, enjoy your new home and if you have any other questions don't hesitate to email me or visit my website. Our branch office is located right in Waterboro.

Hi Irina,

I'd be happy to check for you, however, I don't see a reference to the property you are inquiring about. Can you provide an MLS number or address?
