Florida is a Judicial Foreclosure State
In the state of Florida, the government requires banks to go through judicial foreclosure. This means the bank who holds your mortgage has to file a lawsuit against you in order to foreclose on your house. When a bank decides to foreclose, a few things will happen in succession:
- First, you will receive a 30-day notice to warn you that the bank plans to foreclose on you
- Then, you will be notified (or “served”) the legal action being taken against you, as in any other lawsuit.
- The court gives you 30 days to respond and, if you wish to do so, contest the foreclosure action. (If you contest your case, a hearing or hearings will be necessary, which would extend the amount of time you have left before your home is sold, assuming you do not prevail.)
Facing foreclosure is intimidating, no matter how you slice it. Every state has a different timeline for handling such cases, and it can be very challenging to figure out exactly what you are supposed to, how to do it, and when to do it. However, when armed with the right information and the right support, you can move forward with confidence and begin working toward a positive solution.
