Alabama Foreclosure Process

In Alabama foreclosure homes can undergo both Judicial as well as Non-Judicial foreclosure process according to the laws of foreclosures in the state. Judicial foreclosure is applied when the deed of trust or mortgage does not have the clause of selling the property. In this case a lawsuit is filed by the lender to sell the property. Then the notice containing time, place, purpose and terms is published in the newspaper where the real estate/property is situated. After waiting for 4 consecutive weeks the auction of the property is done and given to the highest bidder.

In the case of non-judicial foreclosure, the deed of trust or mortgage contains all the specifications of the foreclosure home in Alabama. But if this type of foreclosure is there in the deed with no time, place, terms etc then the notice of 30 days is served in the newspaper and then the property is foreclosed. Both types of Alabama home foreclosure take place at the front or main door of the courthouse, where the property is located. At the time of foreclosure auction in Alabama, the first bid is usually done by the foreclosing lender and in most of the cases it is equal to the remaining balance of the loan amount. But if the home is not sold then the lender or bank doing foreclosure will keep it as Real Estate Owned (REO).
