The ins and outs of Florida foreclosure law

Although housing markets around the country continue to have their ups and downs, the foreclosure market is different for every city, including Tampa. At Timothy J. Sierra, we know that Florida continues to have the nation’s highest foreclosure rate and we understand that many people in our area are affected by this problem.

When it comes to foreclosures, there are many issues that are time-sensitive. In order to make sure your foreclosure process goes smoothly its important to know those issues and take care of them as quickly as you can. According to ForeclosureLaw.org, these are just a few of the important items you should be aware of about Florida foreclosure law. Judicial foreclosure is available in Florida, while non-judicial foreclosure is not an option in the state.

Meantime, it usually takes about 180 days for a foreclosure to be completed. How the foreclosure takes place will be determined by the court order of foreclosure, and the process must proceed under those terms. One other important thing to be aware of is that the Equitable Right of Redemption ends when the foreclosure sales.

Many people do not a have complete understanding of how foreclosure works. You may have heard a lot of different statements about foreclosure, but not everything you hear is true. Anyone who is facing foreclosure does have rights, which is why it’s a good idea for everyone to educate him or herself and be aware of those rights.
