The former owner of a foreclosed rental property called asking to be let in the property to remove "items" from it. Do they have any legal right to personal property after the place has been foreclosed and auctioned off back to the 1st lien holder?
Authority to enter and ownership of the property are two separate issue. I suggest you refer them to the new owner to obtain authorization and confirm ownership of the property in question.See question
Found out that foreclosure had been initiated while going through the loan modification process.
A deed in/of foreclosure is generally registered showing the new ownership. The purchasing party just be delaying the registration. You should check to make sure a foreclosure sale did go through and contact the new owner.See question

Without any income you have zero ability to pay. Unfortunately, while a temporary delay in foreclosure may be possible, without regular income a modification is a dead end. Focus on recovering your income as quickly as possible.See question
my siblings do not talk to me at all, mom passed in mar 2011. do i have any rights to her belongings, house, property, if it is auctioned where does the money go??
You would have to go to the city or county records and search under your mother's name or the property address to get the information on any foreclosure process.
With regards to any rights to your mother's property this would depend on whether she left a will. If she left the will, the terms of the will would dictate. If she did not leave a will, state law provides how her property would be divided.
You should contact an attorney immediately considering a foreclosure auction is pending If there is equity in her house the sale will deplete a large some of money that potentially would go to the heirs.See question

The easiest answer is "you do not need an attorney to trigger a foreclosure. You just need to stop making the payments." You should, however, consult an attorney regarding your options and the impact of the foreclosure. Several issues that should be addressed: Will you have a deficiency obligation to the mortgage company? Will you be liable to the tenant? The effect on your credit? Options to avoid these potential problems?
At the same time an attorney could address how to use the legal system to pressure your ex-husband into becoming current on his support.See question

I agree with my colleagues. You will have the 90 days. While as a non-owner you do not have any ability to postpone the sale their are options to delay your departure/eviction. These options come at a price and many not be worth the cost or consideration.See question
Is it best to have a lawyer research the liens or can one easily do this by researching public records? We are also concerned about the current homeowners causing harm to the property prior to leaving. Does this happen routinely? Thank you.
From the questions you are asking I would suspect you are a potential investor in foreclosed properties instead of a homeowner facing foreclosures.
The foreclosing party generally is seeking to recover the amount due on their loan. The price can be set higher if market conditions warrant it. However, a sale at a higher price in many instances is a result of the price being bid up. The property can be sold for less than the amount owed to the lender. However, in most instances the lender will take the property as an REO at foreclosure because a bid is not place for an amount higher than the balance due on their loan.
Homeowner damage to the property depends on the homeowner. I am aware of instances where the houses have be stripped of their trim and copper piping. On the other hand, if the tenant still occupies the property the chances are better that malicious damage has not occurred. The cash-for-keys program, which most mortgage companies now employ, is an attempt to decrease damage. Be aware, however, that is common that a property that has gone through a long foreclosure process is generally neglected in some regard.
Your other alternative to talking the risks including unknown liens is to purchase REO properties directly from the bank. This would allow you to view the property in advance. You could also consider looking for short sale opportunities.
Lien research is relatively uncomplicated and can be learned. However, you may want a lawyer or title companies assistance with your first effort.See question

In most states inexpensive or free legal assistance is based on income not on disability. If your income qualifies you for free legal assistance you could contact the state bar or the local legal aid society. The notice your state in your question would be improper.See question
