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

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?

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.

It may be more effective to have an attorney contact the firm (lawyer) for you.
