Filing foreclosure on a home property
Foreclosing on a home can be complicated as there may be many steps to complete the process. Often, people will turn to an attorney to offer them legal advice on their foreclosure options.
The foreclosure process
The first step may be to go through a default. This default generally outlines the debtors inability to uphold the measures in the deed of trust.
Notice of Delinquency
This can be the written notice given to the junior deed of trust or mortgagor if the loan has been delinquent for a few months. You may want to check, however, if a notice of default has not already been recorded from the lender.
The trustee sale
Contacting a foreclosure trustee may also help you to get along with the trustee sale. Generally, this is the company that will be conducting the sale as mentioned in the deed of trust.
The notice of default
The notice of default can begin the foreclosure process. This notice will most likely need to be acknowledged by the beneficiary or trustee, assigned in the county and mailed to the successors, beneficiaries or junior deeds of the trust. This notice may also be given to any other persons involved who may request a copy.
A default is usually considered as a monetary object. You may, however, foreclose for non-monetary reasons such as not adhering to certain regulations.
Notice of sale
The notice of sale generally established the date of the foreclosure proceedings. Often the date is scheduled within 21 days of the notice of sale.
The notice of sale is also generally filed within 90 days of the notice of default.
The notice of sale may also be published in the local newspaper. Sometimes, the trustee may handle this, unless you have taken on the foreclosure on your own. You may also be able to switch trustees at any point during the foreclosure.
You may also put up the notice of sale on the property and send it to borrowers.
You might be able to postpone the date of sale, but generally the trustee is the only one who has the power to do this.
The property can be purchased by cash or cashier’s check to the highest bidder on the property.
