  1. In line with my research, after a foreclosures home is sold at an auction, it is common to the borrower to still have any remaining unpaid debt on the mortgage loan. There are many loan companies who attempt to have all service fees and liens paid off by the up coming buyer. Having said that, depending on particular programs, laws, and state laws there may be several loans that aren’t easily sorted out through the exchange of lending options. Therefore, the duty still rests on the client that has got his or her property in foreclosure process. Thank you for sharing your ideas on this site.
