A: Answer this Double NO. Homeowner obligations of maintenance and taxes end on issuance of the certificate of title usually at least 10 days after the auction.

Mortgage and Note obligations don't end until after the lender is paid in full. And it depends also what obligation is being foreclosed and the auction price and how those monies get applied.
