  • California Foreclosure Process

    The foreclosure process begins when the borrower is in default, which is usually triggered by failure to make payments. When a borrower is in default, the lender files and records a document called, appropriately, a Notice of Default (NOD). At this stage of the process, the borrower typically has 90 days to pay the balance of the loan.

    If the borrower is unable to pay the remaining balance, the lender then takes the next step in the process, and files a Notice of Trustee Sale (NTS). Once the notice of trustee sale is filed and recorded, the lender is typically required to wait at least 21 days before selling the property at auction, where it is either sold back to the bank, or to a third party. If the property is sold to a third party, it is very difficult for a borrower to regain title to the home. The earlier you are in this foreclosure timeline, the more options you have. Therefore, it is essential that you contact an experienced foreclosure lawyer in Fresno as soon as possible, ideally before you get to the auction stage.

    What JT Legal Can Do For You

    As a borrower, you are entitled to certain protections under state and federal law. A lender must follow the state and federal procedure to the letter if they are attempting to foreclose, and they must provide you with a single point of contact who gives you a clear understanding of the nature of your loan. If a lender fails to provide these and other basic protections, they cannot foreclose and may be liable for damages. At JT Legal Group, we have successfully prevented foreclosure and have won damages against every major lender, all across California.

    MAIN GOAL: Settlement!

    In general terms, fewer than 1% of lawsuits ever actually see a trial. In most cases, lawsuits are settled when the parties can agree to reach a resolution that is mutually satisfactory. Parties are free to settle a lawsuit at any time, and between any of the steps previously listed. In many cases, settlements can be reached even before a preliminary injunction hearing is held.
