Foreclosure Process

Welcome to the Foreclosure Process section of FindLaw's Real Estate Law Center. The foreclosure process is slightly different in every state, but certain aspects of the process are universal. If you are facing foreclosure because of missed mortgage payments, or just need help understand the laws and processes that may occur in your state, you've come to the right place. This section addresses both federal and state laws affecting foreclosure, including foreclosure by judicial or power of sale; affidavits and "robo-signing;" foreclosure tax relief; and regaining ownership after foreclosure. This section also includes state-specific information on foreclosure and what you can do to stop or slow down the foreclosure process.
