Foreclosure Law Rules and Regulations

  • When the loan borrower fails to pay the amount or the installment of the amount, the lender may opt for foreclosure of the property and start the foreclosure process. The foreclosure process is one in which the lender has the responsibility and power to seize the property and resale it to a third party in order to recover the amount of money lent to the borrower. The foreclosure sale usually takes place in the form of a public auction of the property- the process in which the lender sells the land property to the highest bidder.
  • In the foreclosure sale process, the prime aim of the lender is to make sale of the property to recover the amount that is still owed, but in the situation that the borrower is not personally liable to repay the difference amount of the loan and the sale price. Typically, a lender gives prior notice of sale as aforementioned in the mortgage foreclosure law, and gives the borrower a chance to repay the loan amount along with the money taken before auctioning the property.
