My house was foreclosed and I am still receiving bills, why?

Per Massachusetts General Laws we must mail all real estate bills to the assessed property owner as of January 1st. Since we use a real estate file to create disposal bills, the same would apply. Please contact the Bristol County Registry of Deeds at 508-822-0502 to inquire if a deed has been recorded with the bank as the new owners. If a deed has not yet been recorded, please contact the mortgage company that has foreclosed upon your property to inquire when such deed will be recorded.
