California Nonjudicial Foreclosure Process

Foreclosure Timeline—California

The timeline displayed here is typical in a California non-judicial foreclosure. The foreclosure timeline does not begin until the lender feels they have exhausted all avenues for curing the payment deliquency. Normally, this happens after the borrower has missed three monthly mortgage payments and the Notice of Intent to Foreclose has expired. The borrower has probably been contacted by the lender several times prior to beginning the foreclosure process. The offi cial foreclosure process then begins by the lender contacting a Trustee and instructing them to file a Notice of Default.
