Foreclosure

FORECLOSURE PROCESS EXPLAINED

 

Foreclosure is the process that allows a lender to recover the amount owed on a defaulted loan by selling or taking ownership (repossesion) of the property securing the loan. The foreclosure process begins when a borrower defaults on mortgage payments and the lender files a public default notice, called a Notice of Default or Lis Pendes. If the borrower is unable to get up to date on his or hers mortgage payments there are four ways the foreclosure process can end.

 

Pre-foreclosure

 

The borrower sells the property to a third party before the pre-foreclosure period ends (90 days). With pre-foreclosure the owner of the property can sometimes walk away with something to show for his equity on the property depending on the loan to value ratio. But more importantly the quick sale of the property can allow the borrower to pay off the amount owed on the loan and avoid having a foreclosure on his or her credit history. Buying a property in pre-foreclosure involves submitting an offer to buy the property outright from the borrower. The buyer has time to research the title and condition of the property and purchases the property 20% to 40% below market value.

 

Auction

 

If the loan is not reinstated by the end of the pre-foreclosure period, potential buyers can then bid on the property at a public auction and may not have time to research the property condition and title. Buyers are often required to pay in cash for the property.

 

Bank Owned (REO)

 

If the lender takes ownership of the property, either through an agreement with the owner during the pre-foreclosure process or by going through foreclosure, the lender will want to liquidate the property to recover some or all of the unpaid loan amount. The lender will then typically clear the title and perform needed maintenance and repair. Bank foreclosures can become government foreclosures if the loan is backed by a government agency such as the Development of Housing and Urban Development (HUD) or the Department of Veteran Affairs (VA). Bankowned property is discounted heavily and needs to be liquidated, sometimes bringing savings of as much as 60% from the original purchase price.

 

Short Sales

 

In some cases the lender chooses to accept less than the amount of the loan due to avoid the foreclosure process. The foreclosure process can be time consuming and expensive as it involves attorney fees, eviction process, delays from borrower bankruptcy, damage to the property and any other costs associated with resale. The lender wants to make sure the seller of the property with the mortgage in default does not walk away with any cash from the deal so that the net cash to the seller is exactly the short sale pay to the lender. Lenders usually require a preliminary HUD-1 settlement statement for a short sale.
