As a junior lienholder the mortgage will be cut off (extinguished) by the foreclosure sale. (make sure you are talking about a sale of the deed versus the sale of a tax sale certificate) most mortgage holders will step up and pay the lien off before it goes this far
unless there is far too much senior debt to make it worthwhile. To find out if there is amortgage you can use First American Real Estate Services (fares)information or get a title report or look it up yourself at the courthouse.
