Your first course of action is to know what are the real estate foreclosures regulations in FL. Proceed from there. If you have received any notice from your mortgage company regarding any late notice or foreclosure they will provide you with the information you are inquiring about free of charge. They are required to provide said information.

Hi John,

The foreclosure time frames here in South Florida can range from 6 months to a year or more; it depends on a number of criteria. Have you tried either a loan modification or a Short Sale? I would be glad to talk with you on your options so you won't have to fight foreclosure but can have a chance at avoiding foreclosure. I do specialize in Short Sales having helped many a homeowner avoid foreclosure.Please email me or call me do discuss this further. Please don't just move out as you have options.

Once you receive your Notice of Default by posting on your residence, usps mail and registered mail you will have 90 days to cure your default or you will be served with a Notice of Trustee Sale which notified you that you have no less than 20 days before your home will be sold at auction. Unless you were to contest the foreclosure sale you typically have 120 days from your first notice until the sale date. Once the sale has occured then you have only a week or so to vacate.

This is how it is in California. Each state varies in their foreclosure proceedings. Check with your state to verify timeframes and anything else you should expect. Your lender will offer you this information as well as the trustee who is authorized to hold the auction.

Good luck. Sorry to hear about your situation. But you are not alone, that's for sure.

Hi John,

Usually you'll have 30 days from when you are actually served with a writ of eviction. This will be served directly to you by a peace officer (typical) - or if you are not around, taped to your front door.

If you merely received the first notice of foreclosure then it can still be quite a while before your home goes to sheriff's auction. Only after the auction is over will you be served a writ of eviction.

Even if you don't think that you want to fight this at all - please have a free consult with a foreclosure real estate lawyer - just to know your options.

What notice have you been served? Eviction or foreclosure transfer of title back to bank?
