    In accordance with my research, after a the foreclosure home is sold at a sale, it is common to the borrower to still have any remaining balance on the loan. There are many creditors who make an effort to have all costs and liens repaid by the up coming buyer. On the other hand, depending on selected programs, legislation, and state laws there may be some loans that aren’t easily sorted out through the shift of loans. Therefore, the obligation still remains on the client that has received his or her property in foreclosure process. Thank you sharing your ideas on this site.
