What Happens After the Sale of My Home?

daOnce your home is sold, your ownership gets transferred to the lender or the bank. Usually, you cannot live in your property any longer after this procedure. But if you have a good relationship with your lender and if you can convince them, you can live in your property on rent.

As soon as the procedure gets over in the court, you will get a written notice for your eviction and you will be informed to vacant your property. You can take help through a loan modification restoration to get your property back. How fast you’re expected to have the notice to vacant the property depends on who is going to take your property after the sale. It could be a new purchaser or the same lender.

After the sale of your property, your ownership will be transferred to the new buyer and obviously they will want the possession of their new home as early as possible.

  • It also depends on how easy it is for your lender to resell your property in the market. If they get new buyers easily, you may get termination notice in a very short period.
  • In some cases, your lender may bring real estate agencies if they have no expertise in reselling your property in the market. If this happens, it could take a considerable amount of time.
