The Statutory Right of Redemption. About half of all states have laws that give homeowners the right to redeem their mortgages for a period of time after the foreclosure sale, typically by paying the foreclosure sale price, plus interest and other allowable fees, to the foreclosure sale purchaser.

The laws vary in each state. But the general right you have after a foreclosure sale is the right to redeem the sold property. So Contact the lender who made the sale and ask for information on the right of redemption of the property

Lis Pendens is Latin for "Suit Pending." Lis Pendens is a notice filed in the public record that a lawsuit has been filed against the property. Most likely the lawsuit filed is a foreclosure?

If the owner exercises the right of redemption and pays a portion of the purchase price, then the property can go back to the owner.

A loan modification is an offer made by the mortgage company once a person Is in economic hardship. No lawsuit is filed for a loan modification. If a person defaults on the loan modification, then the lender will file a foreclosure lawsuit.

Once the lawsuit is filed, a lis pendens is also filed. Then the auction happens only after a foreclosure is granted. Even after the auction though, you have the right of redemption by law to reclaim the property from the lender simply by asking for the right to redeem from the company that held the auction
