I just bought a foreclosure in MI. The previous owners have a year to redeem themselves under MI law. But I heard they secretly sold 2 of the 5 acres and are saying they will trash the house before I get it. Is this legal? Can you sell some of the land that is in foreclosure and can you destroy the property before the new owner actually gets it? Also am I allowed to hire an appraiser to look at the property and assess it before the damage occurs? I am totally lost as to what my rights are. Thanks for anything you can give me.
