Foreclosure: Nuts and Bolts

5. Banks attorney files foreclosure action with the county clerk or recorders office.
6. Notice of default lets people know the foreclosure is pending.

Three Basic Types of Foreclosure

    lender can exercise the power of sale clause and take the property
2. In a judicial foreclosure, the courts oversee the process.
3. In a strict foreclosure, the lender dictates the terms.

2. Check the laws in your state.
