Answers to frequently asked questions..
What is foreclosure?
A foreclosure is a lawsuit. It is the formal process a lender has to go through to take
possession of a home after there has been a default on a mortgage.
How will I know if a foreclosure has started?
Just like with any other lawsuit, the mortgage company has to give you notice. When a
foreclosure starts, you will be served with Summons, usually by a sheriff. However, if
the sheriff is unable to serve you, the mortgage company could also serve notice by
publication. If you are uncertain as to whether a foreclosure has started, you should
consult with an attorney immediately to confirm.
