I need someone to advise me on what liens I am responsible for if I purchase a property,at Sheriff's Sale. I realize that I must do a title search prior, but if the mortgage is owed far more than the home is worth, am I reponsible for the original mortgage, or is it released from the liens? Any advice will be greatly appreciated.
