Generally: The proceeds of the sale are used to pay outstanding liens that must be paid. Liens that must be paid are local, state and federal taxes, municipal services liens, the subject mortgage and any liens that were recorded prior to the recording of the foreclosed mortgage. Any liens that were recorded after the subject mortgage are wiped out as to the record title. They would no longer be liens against the real estate but could be pursued as against the owner who acquired them.
