If you purchase a property at auction from an owner that is going through a bankrupcy are there any problems with evicting them from the property after you have won the auction?
IT CAN BE VERY DIFFICULT TO EVICT SOMEONE THAT IS GOING THROUGH A BANKRUPTCY WHEN THE PROPERTY IS SOLD AT AUCTION. THESE OWNERS HAVE TRIED EVERYTHING TO HOLD ON ( BANKRUPTCY BEING THE FINAL CHAPTER) AND THEY ARE VERY HEART BROKEN. I WOULD LET EVERYONE KNOW THAT BIDS ON A PROP IN BK( HAVE THE FULL STORY ) MAKE SURE THAT ITS OWNER OCCUPIED AND NOT OCCUPIED BY A TENANT. NEW LAW ALLOWS FOR THE TENANT TO KEEP OCCUPANCY FOR A YEAR ( MINIMUM) IN A TRUSTEE SALE. AND ALSO BE CAREFUL HOW U PURCHASE PROPERTY , RATHER YOU ARE A BONAFIDE PURCHASER OR A INVESTOR MAKES A WORLD OF DIFFERENCE.

No issue in my experience. Declaring bankruptcy automatically stays debt collection, including foreclosures and eviction proceedings. As such the only way the home could have been sold during a bankruptcy is if the lender received a motion for relief from the bankruptcy stay clearing the home for sale, and as I understand it, eviction.
The only time I’ve had an issue with eviction and bankruptcy was when the prior owner declared bankruptcy during the eviction, which happened a couple of times. In one particular case the prior owner really worked the system delaying the eviction by 9 months. Fortunately the market was rapidly rising then, so in the end he did me a big favor.
