Judgments of Foreclosure
Once signed by a judge, the judgment of foreclosure gives the lender permission to move ahead with the foreclosure and sell the property through a referee. The judge assigns a referee (usually an attorney) who computes the final judgment amount (the total amount owed by the borrower to the lender) associated with the court action.
The Judgment of Foreclosure occurs after the Lis Pendens filing and prior to the Notice of Sale. It is the last step in the foreclosure process, preceding the sale of the property at public auction. The time between our Judgments of Foreclosure Edition and the advertised Notice of Sale can be from weeks to months.
