Power of Sales and Bank Foreclosure Question

I had a question from a reader and thought I would share my answer:

Question: My understanding is that the bank must list the property for what is owed,
including any seconds and thirds. Is this true?

Answer: The mortgagee processing the POS is under no obligation and owes no duty to
subsequent mortgagees. This is why you will occasionally see a 2nd or 3rd
mortgagee bring the first mortgage into good standing and stall or stop the
POS to protect their interests.

I hope this finds you Happy and Healthy!

All the Best!
