Short Sale Processing Timelines are the same as Foreclosure Timelines

Understanding Short Sales in Sacramento Means Understanding Foreclosure in Sacramento:


Read on to understand California Foreclosure Timelines-
Foreclosure– how do you mean that?
Most of the time, Foreclosure means one of a couple of things; one is a process, as in “my Brother is in foreclosure”, or second, it can be an actual event: “that 4600 square foot home went for $243,000 at the foreclosure sale the other day…”
You see, foreclosure as a process means the three steps a bank or investor goes through to take a home or piece of property back; or it can be the actual trustee sale at Sacramento county trustee sale at 720 9TH ST  downtown Sacramento, held nearly every business day.
The legal Foreclosure Time-Lines in California have changed!
California added another 90 days
On February 20, 2009, Governor Schwarzenegger signed ABX2 7 and SBX27 that added  Section 2923.52-2923.55 to the Civil Code. These new laws providean additional 90 days  for borrowers who are presently facing foreclosure to work out loan modifications. This law went into effect June 15, 2009.
So an additional ninety (90) days have been added to the previous 90 day period that must pass after a Notice of Default has been recorded, before a Notice of Sale can be recorded. So instead of 90 days it is now 180 days, in order to allow all parties time to be contacted by the bank in  order to  pursue a loan modification. If a Notice of Trustee Sale had already been recorded prior to June 15, 2009, this provision will not apply. So the typical 90 day timeframe required between a Notice of Default and Notice of Sale has now been extended to 180 days in many cases.
So the timelines are now:

After you are 60 days past due on your mortgage payment, (or 90 days since your last payment), the bank can file a notice of default:
Then, 180 days (used to be 90 days) after that, the Notice of Trustee Sale can be filed. No earlier than 20 days later, the Trustee Sale can be held-
So; the Fastest the foreclosure process can proceed by law:
60 days late = Notice of default
180 days = Notice of Trustee Sale (Used to be 90 Days)

21 days= Trustee sale
Most banks and servicers are being very slow to file the initial Notice of Default– almost all wait over six months. The Notice of Trustee Sale may take up to a year after the Notice of Default is filed. Even after the Notice of Trustee Sale is filed, the banks/sevicers are now re-scheduling over 3/4 of the Trustee Sales, many for an additional 30, 60,or 90 days initially and then rescheduling again if they have made contact with the homeowner and there is any hope of a loan modification or short sale. They don’t want any more foreclosures unless it is clear there is no foreclosure solution. The writing is on the wall: Less foreclosures and more short sales for 2010 and beyond!
