Theres a house on my block which has been for sale for many months.
There was a For Sale sign up but now its down.
I heard from the tentant who lives there (the house is a rental)
that she received a letter saying the house was in foreclosure and than someone else told me it was being Acution off.

I know someone who is a REA and she told me its not in foreclousure
and the listing ended. How can I find out if its in foreclousure or Acution and how much.
I wont ask the REA I know because she asked me to get her the owners name so she could list it for him and I wont do that for her (dont like her much to do that favor)

But I just wanna know is there a web site or something I can go on and look up the info?

Thanks!

Most foreclosure web sites charge a fee. If you really want to check out a particular property, take a couple of hours and head to the Suffolk County Clerk's office in Riverhead. You will want to see if any "Lis Penden" has been filed against the property. This is a public notice that is recorded in order to put people on notice that a foreclosure action is about to begin. While you're there, you can look up their mortgage to see who the lender is and how much they owe.

Lis Penden: Latin for "a suit pending." The term may refer to any pending lawsuit. (2) A written notice that a lawsuit has been filed concerning real estate, involving either the title to the property or a claimed ownership interest in it. The notice is usually filed in the county land records office. Recording a lis pendens against a piece of property alerts a potential purchaser or lender that the property’s title is in question, which makes the property less attractive to a buyer or lender. After the notice is filed, anyone who nevertheless purchases the land or property described in the notice takes subject to the ultimate decision of the lawsuit.

Good morning, I'm trying to find out the same information myself. :-) I'll try a google search & see if that turns up anything & if it does I'll let you know.

Yes, you're correct - that would be in Mineola

BTW, the proper term is "lis pendens" (sorry, Tom)

Ask a local Realtor to check Public Records for you or go to your County Courthouse.
