How Long Can the Foreclosure Process Take?Return to Videos
The foreclosure process takes as long as it needs to. What does that mean? It means that it can happen very quickly if you don’t do anything to stop it. The banks can have your foreclosure done and over with in a matter of months and you’ll be out of the house. But if you fight, if you raise defenses, if you propound discovery and demand responses and fight about objections and do all the things that gives the bank a reason to come to the table settle, then the process takes a much longer time.
And years can go by. I still have some of my clients from 2008 so there’s no end to some of these cases. But it’s important to recognize the amount of work that you put in in preparing your defense is gonna be very, very important if you’re expecting to have this take any significant amount of time.
