Question:

While I understand that money found after a regular purchase has to be returned to the vendor, does this halachah change if the money found was in a house that the bank foreclosed on and which was sold “as is” under Power of Sale?

Answer:

You may keep the money and you don’t have to return it. This is since the house was taken away from the person, we assume that they were miyayesh on it and there isn’t a need to return it.
