If your home is listed for Sheriff’s Sale, then what are your options? You may be eligible to file for bankruptcy to stop the sale. Also, if you decide to sell your property and get an Agreement of Sale prior to the Sheriff’s Sale, we can file an emergency petition with the court to stay or stop the sale. It is strongly recommended that you consult with our attorneys as soon as possible to discuss all options.
If your home was sold at Sheriff’s Sale, you do not have to move out immediately. The new owner of your home (in most case, your mortgage company) must file a Complaint in Ejectment with the court if you are unwilling to leave your house. In some circumstances, you may remain in the home for as long as twelve (12) months. It is strongly recommended that you consult with our attorneys as soon as possible to discuss your options.
