Hi - my name is ***** ***** I'll be glad to assist.
It's hard to say exactly what the status of the property is without checking the land records.......but it is possible that the lender hasn't foreclosed on the property yet (under Florida foreclosure law, the statute of limitations for a bank to file foreclosure is 5 years. Florida Statute 95.11).
So, it could be possible that this property has escheated to the state as unclaimed.......but the lender's lien would still be intact/enforceable so long as the statute of limitations hasn't expired.
