Thanks for your question and good morning.My sympathy here for your situation and dilemma.
When a second mortgage holder forecloses as they have done here, the fist mortgage must be paid in full before clear title can pass to the buyer. However, title will still pass to the buyer---it will simply be subject to the first mortgage. If someone buys the property at the foreclosure sale, and then pays off the first mortgage, they will take good and complete title to the property. You will no longer be the legal owner, and you can then be evicted---just as you could if it were the first mortgage lender foreclosing. Here you being caught up with the first mortgage does not protect the property from being foreclosed on by the second lender. It is just that the second lender cannot keep any proceeds of the sale until the first mortgage lender has been paid in full. So, knowing this, if the second lender is foreclosing, they also likely intend to pay the first mortgage as well and then take title to the property and sell it.And again unfortunately they can file and evict you.The second lender here is responsible for making the payments on the first note or paying it off if they want to resell it here.But they can evict.
Second lenders don't always foreclose especially if the house is underwater but h ere apparently they decided to do so.You may respond to any eviction suit here and try to delay it a bit.But overall here you need to make plans for relocating because they can eventually evict you in all likelihood.
Here is reference to the eviction process--once they file suit here and serve you with suit you would have no more than a couple of weeks.So again make plans to be out around the date of the hearing.I truly wish I could give you better news here but I know you want honest information about your situation.
Reference to the process and time frames.
