“When will I receive a foreclosure action?”
If you missed three to four mortgage payments, your mortgage lender will probably initiate the foreclosure process. The foreclosure process begins when the lender sends you a Notice of Default, a formal notice that the mortgage holder (you) are late on your payments. This notification will include vital information about your home loan, such has how much you owe and how to make your payments current. If you do not bring your payment sup to date, the lender will file the next document, Lis Pendens, which states the lender’s intentions to pursue litigation.
Notice of Action & Foreclosure Action
If the mortgage remains unpaid, the lender will initiate a Notice of Action to further indicate an impending lawsuit. The formal foreclosure process begins when this notice is posted. After the Notice of Action, the lender will file a Foreclosure Action, which is a formal lawsuit against the mortgage holder. This notice will indicate when the house will be sold (typically three to six weeks in the future).
The mortgage holder can update payments on the home at any time during the foreclosure process. If the homeowner is able to become current on the loan payments, the lender may decide to stop the foreclosure process. Once the payments are current and the lender decides to forego legal action, the mortgage holder will resume ownership of the property.
