do we get the keys to the property?
The sale is not final until the Judge signs a “Confirmation”.
The Defendant can redeem his property until the “Confirmation” is
signed. If this happens, you will get your deposit returned.
We must receive
a “Judgment Entry” that the sale is set aside, and to return
You are not the owners until you file your deed. When we receive the “Confirmation” we
will call you. The “Terms of Sale” usually give you 30 days
from the Confirmation to pay the balance and pick up your deed.
The Plaintiff’s Attorney prepares the ‘Confirmation” and
submits it to the Judge for review and signing.
This process has taken between 30 to 60 days or longer. If you are in a
hurry, you may be disappointed.
We do not get keys for the houses. You are encouraged to get a locksmith
to enter the house and change the locks.
It is unknown how many, or who
might have keys to the house. This is for your security.
Again you should consult an attorney.
