Thank you for the advice offered to my earlier question. We have contacted the bank to ask for a contact number in case any issues arise. They denied the home was in foreclosure and were frankly very rude. That's okay because that was my answer. I know this is false because they sent someone out to winterize and change the locks. The lawyer's office handling the case was very receptive until I listed two issues with the house. No response from them after that. Again, that is fine. Code Control is on the case! I had a long discussion with their representative and we will make sure the home does not deteriorate and/or become a hazard.

It sounds like it is NOT in foreclosure - it may have been at one time but now, from what you say about the locks, etc., it sounds like bank owned property.

Thank you, Chuck Steak. I am not totally up on the correct terms. I called the house a foreclosure because that is what my original questions was concerning and the fact that it is listed as such in county court records. Not sure if the bank actually owns it yet because the tax records have not reflected a change in ownership. All we know is that it is empty and has not been maintained for well over a year at the time the owner vacated and was poorly maintained for years prior to that.
