Real property — Foreclosure — Equitable abatement
A1A Properties, LLC (“A1A”), appellant, purchased a residential property in Baltimore County at a foreclosure sale. The Substitute Trustees,
appellees, timely reported the sale to the Circuit Court for Baltimore County. Before the sale was ratified, the Governor declared a State of Emergency due to the COVID-19 pandemic. Soon after, residential foreclosure cases were stayed subject to an administrative order issued by the Chief Judge of the Supreme Court of Maryland, and then, in some cases, due to federal moratoria. More than 20 months after the report of sale was filed, the court ratified the sale.
