Title and Liens

Most liens are removed after a foreclosure property sale, but certain liens may remain.
Here are some examples:
  • Any lien recorded on title prior in time to the foreclosing mortgage.
  • First Mortgage (if the foreclosing mortgage is a second or third mortgage)
  • HOA or COA assessment liens (in certain states)
  • Mechanic’s Liens (in some states)
  • Government liens such as state and federal tax liens, city or county liens, US Government liens.
  • IRS liens (IRS may buy the property within 120 days after the sale at the price paid at the foreclosure sale)
  • Code Enforcement Liens, Environmental Liens, and Utility Liens
  • Child Support Liens
