The auction is held and a report of sale is filed with the court. You normally have 30 days to object to the sale, otherwise the court will approved the sale. If you still living in the house, the new owner (usually the bank) will ask the court for a writ of possession, you them have another 30 days to respond to the writ and explain why you should not have to move out. The court will then issue an order giving the new owner possession of the property. Only then, the new owners need to take this order to the sheriff and ask him to sets a day for the eviction.

Best of Luck,

I would have to agree with Joan, this is on a case by case scenario. On the other hand you should not let this ome into foreclosure and do a short sale. There is time to still stop it depending where you are in the process. A foreclosure has detrimental consequences for your near future if you want to buy another home again. Needless to say the banks are now giving on a case by case money for you to move out and do a short sale. Call me for more details.

You should call your bank and ask them. They should tell you.

However, you may have other options. We have postponed many auctions to proceed with the short sale of a house. A short sale would keep foreclosure off your credit. Furthermore, we may be able to get you relocation money, if you qualify. We are a professional short sale service and would be happy to explain the process to you. Please call us directly to discuss your specific situation. Our services are FREE for homeowners.

thats a hard question, depending on the bank and the situation. In order to answer it, need more info, like who is the lender and what has been going on etc
