So i just want make sure i own the house now
Real Estate Lawyer: Attyadvisor, Attorney replied 5 months ago

Perfect. You purchased a condo foreclosure. There may be other liens on the property such as a mortgage. Once you have the title we could see if there are any liens that you would be taking the property subject to.

You purchased the Ortiz property that was foreclosed by the HOA/Lennar.

The title changed to Lennar after they were successful in foreclosing Ortiz.

i own the house? and how should i know about mortgage if their is any?
Real Estate Lawyer: Attyadvisor, Attorney replied 5 months ago

You will want to get a copy of title from a title company. You would order the title based on the fact that you are the purchaser of the HOA foreclosure.

If there is a mortgage that was recorded prior to the HOA lien you purchased the property subject to that mortgage. http://www.primerus.com/business-law-articles/a-warning-to-investors-in-florida-superior-liens-survive-foreclosure-sales.htm

Real Estate Lawyer: Attyadvisor, Attorney replied 5 months ago

"Two Florida laws speak to lien priority. According to changes in 2008 to the HOA law and changes in 1992 to the COA law, for purposes of lien priority, you use the date that the HOA or COA recorded its Declaration of Covenants, Conditions, and Restrictions (CC&Rs) or Declaration of Condominium (Fla. Stat. Ann. §(###) ###-####1), § 718.116(5)(a)). This is advantageous to the HOA or COA because its lien might get priority over another lien recorded before you became delinquent on the assessments if the association's declaration was recorded even earlier.

There’s a wrinkle though. In some cases the association cannot use the earlier lien priority date. Here’s why.

  • If a lender or other entity recorded a lien against your home beforethe laws were enacted (July 1, 2008 for HOAs and April 1, 1992 for COAs), then the HOA or COA lien priority date does not go all the way back to the recordation of the CC&Rs or Declaration of Condo unless something in the HOA or COA declaration allows the association to use the earlier lien priority date.
    • Even if the declaration provides language allowing the association to use the earlier date, some courts have ruled otherwise – that the lien priority position does not go all the way back to the recordation of the declaration.

    Needless to say, the law in Florida on lien priority of HOA and COA liens is complicated. If you have questions about how this will impact you if your home or condo is foreclosed, talk to a Florida attorney specializing in foreclosures.

    When it comes to first mortgages of record, the lien is effective from and after the date the HOA or COA records the lien in the public records in the county where the property is located (Fla. Stat. Ann. §(###) ###-####1), § 718.116(5)(a))." https://www.nolo.com/legal-encyclopedia/florida-hoa-coa-foreclosures.html

    If the HOA lien came first you are not taking subject to any mortgages.

    That is correct way the title would show after a foreclosure.
