Definitions:
    Foreclosure Auction
    The public sale of mortgaged property. It usually indicates a default in the repayment of a mortgage loan. Such a sale may result from a decree of a court, or from the lender's power of sale as contained in the mortgage; the proceeds from the sale are used to satisfy the debt owed to the mortgagee (the lending institution) by the mortgagor (the borrower). Prior to the sale, public notice stating the time and place of the sale must be published where the property is located.

    Petition to Foreclose
    Petitions to Foreclose are the first step in the foreclosure process in Massachusetts. The filing of this document is the first indication that the property is in distress. The petition to foreclose process serves to notify interested parties through the publication of legal notices in local newspapers that the lender has asked for authority to foreclose the mortgage it holds on the property. Only parties who are protected under the Service members Civil Relief Act of 2003, formerly the Soldiers' and Sailors' Civil Relief Act of 1940, may register objections to the proceedings. If the Land Court receives no objections, it will rule that the lender may proceed with the foreclosure processes described in the original mortgage deed.

    Lis Penden
    This status indicates a pending legal action against the property owner. It is NOT a guarantee of pre-foreclosure activity. However, lis pendens fileds between a property owner and a mortgage lender most often are the first step in the foreclosure process for properties in Connecticut.

    Sheriff Sales
    Sheriff Sales are abstracted from legal notices published in newspapers throughout the state. These give notice of public auction of real property in cases where the court has ordered the sale to satisfy a judgment in a lawsuit. The sale may occur at the property or in the office of the sheriff.

    REO Properties
    REO stands for Real Estate Owned. This is the term most often used to refer to properties that have been foreclosed upon and are currently owned by the lender. An REO is a property that has been acquired by a lender via a foreclosure deed.
