Foreclosure in Georgia: What Homeowners Need to Know
Most Homeowners are Entitled to a 120 Pre-Foreclosure Period
With limited exceptions, federal law provides homeowners in Georgia with 120 days of pre-foreclosure protections. In other words, a mortgage lender cannot begin the foreclosure process until the borrower is delinquent by at least 120 days. During the pre-foreclosure process, homeowners generally have more options available.
Georgia is a Non-Judicial Foreclosure State
As Georgia is a non-judicial foreclosure, a mortgage lender (typically) does not need a court order to foreclose on a property. Instead, mortgage loans include a “power of sale” provision that pre-authorizes a non-judicial foreclosure sale. The effect of this is that the foreclosure process can move quickly once it gets started.
You Have a Right to Notice of Foreclosure
To be clear, all homeowners in Georgia have a right to notice of foreclosure. The mortgage lender must provide a Notice of Intent to Foreclose at least 30 days before any sale.
How to Stop Foreclosure in Georgia
If you believe that the lender is preparing to foreclose on your home or if you have already received a foreclosure notice, you need to take immediate action to protect your rights. The sooner you address this issue, the better your chances of halting the foreclosure process. Depending on the specific nature of your case, you may be able to cure the default, obtain a loan modification, or challenge the foreclosure.
