Ask a Lawyer and Get Answers to Your Legal Questions
Hi and welcome to JA. Ray here to help you today.Please bear with me a few moments while I review your question and respond.
You would want to check the county deed records to verify the second was released--it would be on file under your property description.If that is true then nothing due on the second.It might be that they combined them at the time and release the second.Verify this by the county deed records a it would be on file, get a copy while you are there of the release.
I would not worry about the taxes here, if the lost went back then the taxes go with title whoever bought it or took it back is liable and the taxes go with the property here.The lawyer is just trying to convince you to pay, I don't see that you owe them if it was foreclosed.The tax assessor can foreclose on the current owner to get paid not you.
I appreciate the chance to help you today.Thanks again.
