When a borrower has become what the lender deems as habitually delinquent in their mortgage payments, the lender may legally seek to foreclose on the home or property.
The lender begins this process by be petitioning the court in a judicial foreclosure proceeding where the court will issue a ruling and final judgment of a foreclosure legal claim.
The mortgage documents are filed to evidence the underlying debt and terms of repayment, which is set forth in the note.
A complaint is usually filed in circuit court along with what is known as a lis pendens, which is a recorded document that provides public notice that the property is being foreclosed upon. After the court has ruled in favor of the lender, the property may then be sold as part of a publicly noticed sale or auction.
In the State Florida, the law gives you 20 days from the date that you are served with a foreclosure notice to file an answer and fight a foreclosure of your home.
