Can I remove a storage shed, prior to my house being foreclosed? 3 Answers as of October 21, 2013

I have a 8' x 12' storage shed on blocks, no Foundation, that was on my property when I purchased it. My house is now being foreclosed on. Can I legally remove the shed? It's not listed in any contracts or deeds that I have seen.

That's a close question. It may constitute a fixture, in which case it should remain. But it may constitute personal property if it is not affixed to the land or connected by pipes or electrical wires. If you do remove it and the come after you, your exposure is limited to the difference in the fair market value of the property with and without the shed.
