What are “NO POSSESSION” foreclosed properties?
Please take note that for a significant number of properties on the list, the bank has “NO POSSESSION” of said properties.
This means that the property either has illegal occupants/tenants, or it has been abandoned.
Please refer to our experience below when we purchased a “NO POSSESSION” foreclosed property from UCPB.
Our experience buying a UCPB Foreclosed Property tagged as “NO POSSESSION”
I remember our experience buying a UCPB foreclosed property that said “NO POSSESSION” on the list at that time. Yes, UCPB had no possession of the condo, but based on our inspection/due diligence, we found out that the unit was abandoned (it had no illegal occupants and was locked).
However, the property had unpaid condo dues, and because of this, the turnover to us got delayed (the arrears had to be paid before we can get authorization to have the unit unlocked).
Good thing we were prepared and had a backup plan (we urgently needed to move-in because school was about to start for our son).
Anyway, I’m glad that all issues were addressed in a professional and timely manner, and I’m so thankful to everyone from UCPB who assisted us. I’ll share more details about our experience in a separate article or video.
“NO POSSESSION” can also mean a foreclosed property has illegal occupants
In my experience I shared above, it turned out the property was abandoned even if UCPB had no possession.
However, you will definitely encounter “NO POSSESSION” properties that have illegal occupants. In this case, you will have to do the ejection.
If it has an ongoing court case (indicated under the column “Legal Case” in UCPB’s list of foreclosed properties), the buyer will also takeover and continue the court case.
Because of the reasons above, I highly advice against buying foreclosed properties that have illegal occupants and/or an ongoing court case, even if they are cheap. To learn more about this, check out the following article:
We have nothing to disclose. Even if we are licensed real estate brokers, we are not selling foreclosed properties from UCPB (you should contact/transact with UCPB directly).
We are just sharing this as a public service announcement for those interested in foreclosed properties from UCPB.
