What is a mortgage foreclosure a/k/a sheriff certificate of sale?
This legal document is recorded in the recorder's office to show that the Sheriff sold land for which the mortgagor/owner in a Mortgage had not made the payments so that the mortgagee/bank could get their money out of the property. Usually the mortgagee/bank is the one to buy the property, but anyone can buy in at the sale. The Sheriff's Certificate is recorded in the Recorder's office once the sale takes place at the Wright County Sheriff's office. Questions contact the attorney that handled the foreclosure on behalf of the bank or consult with a real estate attorney.
