Should/can we hire an attorney to help push a house (we are interested in) through foreclosure more quickly?

Asked almost 2 years ago - Anderson, IN

This home has been sitting for over 2 years. We have spoken with the existing owners at their new residence (buying on contract) about a possible short sale (not interested and filing bancruptcy for the second time). The foreclosure process was filed in 12/11, all parties were summons. Motion for default judgement was filed 3/12. Which was then followed with Plaintiffs motion for default denied due to Insufficient service. Third party service is insufficient. Hardy vs Maldonado (ind app. 1994)
Nothing has happened since 3/12. Would hiring our own attorney help push it through to the sherriff sale?

    Answered . Your best bet might be to contact the attorney that represents the mortgagee and let her or him know you're interested in the property to determine a course of action. His or her name will be on the Court record.
