How Long Does Foreclosure Take in Florida?

The short answer is it depends. Many factors determine how long a foreclosure takes in Florida.  This answer may be different depending on which county the lender filed the foreclosure suit and the steps you take within the first 20 days of being served. For example, how long a foreclosure takes in Pasco County tells us nothing about how long a foreclosure takes in Hillsborough County, even when the facts of the case are identical.

The good news is that you have some control over how long the foreclosure process takes in your case.  No matter what your ultimate goal, our foreclosure defense attorneys will help you reach that goal. 

If you need more time in the property, or to explore a strategic default,  a loan modificaion, or even to strip a second mortgage via a bankruptcy we can help.  No matter what you situation you owe it to yourself and your family to make an informed decision that not only addresses your foreclosure case, but also protects your future.  Our foreclosure attorneys utilize a Four Step Debt Relief analysis to identify the best foreclosure defense strategy for you.

I wish there was a crystal ball that could give you the exact amount of time your foreclosure will take, but we know that doesn't exist.  In much the same way, you should be leary of foreclosure defense attorneys that "guarantee" a specific amount of time before they have taken your case.  Often times this is a sign of an attorney that is not familiar with the foreclosure process in Florida, and is more interested in your money.  The same thing goes double for any non attorney that guarantees you extra time in your foreclosure case. Not only are they lying to you, their actions are illegal.


However, with proper representation from an experienced foreclosure attorney you can extend how long the foreclosure process takes.  Although affecting the amount of time the foreclosure takes is a major benefit of using our foreclosure defense strategies, you also get an overall debt relief analyis and suggested strategies completely free of charge.
