The Power of Sale and Foreclosure Process

A lender can start a power of sale if a loan has been in default for more than 15 days. Once they receive a Notice of Sale Under Mortgage the homeowner has only about 35 days to pay listed fees and correct the situation. Failure to do so will result in a statement of claim’ issued to show the homeowner all the many charges to be paid with the mortgage settlement. The extra fees may include legal fees, land rates due and other fees unique to the region. If you fail to pay the statement of claim, you will receive a writ of possession closely followed by eviction. The power of sale does not give a lender title to the property meaning that equity in the home still belongs to you. Therefore, any money remaining from the sale of your home will be refunded. This is different from a foreclosure where all is lost including equity remaining in a home.

Methods of Stopping a Power of Sale or Foreclosure

When a bank or other lender uses a power of sale or foreclosure on a property, the owner has two options. You can allow them to sell off your home or try to stop the processes if you have enough equity. The only way to avert a power of sale or foreclosure on your property is to pay off a mortgage holder. With sufficient equity, you can be able to negotiate another loan to use as a mortgage payment. It is also possible to sell off a property but if you have more debts on the home than its value, trying to stop a power of sale is a complex matter that needs professional help. Most residents of Cambridge have average equity and that will require specialist advice to make a proper judgement.

Buying a Cambridge Foreclosure or Power of Sale House
