Why do they get served? What does it matter?
If you are referring to the entry in the docket, this would typically mean that the government was named in the lawsuit because a tax levy or similar lien was placed against the property being foreclosed upon and the foreclosing bank or homeowner’s association identified them as potentially having a claim on the property. I would recommend that you consult with an experienced foreclosure defense attorney that would be able to review the filing and respond more completely as to any impact it would have in the current matter.

Without knowing more, I would presume that this response was filed because an IRS or similar lien was placed against the property being foreclosed upon. I would suggest that you consult with an experienced foreclosure defense attorney who should be able to fully analyze your case.

If you miss too many mortgage payments, your lender can start foreclosure proceedings to take ownership of the property, but it has to follow your state's laws.
The term real estate means land and items permanently attached to it, like buildings. This area of law deals with who has the right to own and use these items.
