All that title insurance does for you in this situation is tell (by the commitment)what has to be cleared from the property in order to insure clear title in the purchaser at the auction sale. Whether or not the auction sale actually removes the defects (liens etc…) from the property is a technical legal question. You should get help from an experienced lawyer before bidding. Auction sales are often full of nasty surprises for the unwary.
