  • Has the bank filed a Notice of Default yet (a certified letter would have arrived)?
  • Is there a Sherrif Sale/Auction date? If so, when is it?
  • How many mortgages are there?  What are the approximate balances owed on each?
  • Who are the mortgage company(s)?
  • Are taxes being paid with the mortgage payment (escrowed) or is the homeowner responsible for them separate?  Are they current or delinquent?
  • Are there any other judgments or liens that the seller is aware of (child support/alimony, credit cards, back taxes owed, homeowner association dues, etc.)?
  • Is the house currently listed on the market with a Realtor?  (If so, what is the list price, when was it listed, and how has the showing activity been?)
  • Have any offers/contracts been presented the bank yet? (If so, how much was the offer and what was the bank’s response?
  • Who is on title(deed)? And who is on the actual mortgage?  Who signed the note?
  • Was this a primary residence or an investment property (or 2nd/vacation home)?
