Question on Legal Notices

by @ 5:44 am. Filed under FAQs

A website visitor sent this question by email:

Is the Lowell Sun the newspaper of record for Middlesex North? Is it always
the Saturday edition? Are legal notices (foreclosure, lis pendens) available
online? It seems they can be found at www.masslandrecords.com after the
fact. Is there some kind of syndication service (RSS) or mailing list for
such notices?

Here’s my reply:

Legal notices are published pursuant to a court order in each particular case. I’m not sure how the courts determine which newspaper is to carry the publication. Certainly the Lowell Sun carries many of them, but certainly not all. And legal notices appear in the Sun every day.

I know of no RSS or similar technology to feed that type of info to interested parties.

The “foreclosure reports” we put on www.lowelldeeds.com each month have a limited use. If you read the explanatory information at this location - http://www.lowelldeeds.com/2004fc.htm - it might help you follow the process.

You can go into the “search land records” portion of our database, set a particular date range (the smaller the better, usually) and then select a document type from the drop down menu and click search. That will yield all instances of that type of document being recorded within the indicated date range. Using that method, you can only search for one document type at a time, but if you’re interested and willing to put some time into it, you can get the information in a very timely manner.
