Foreclosure & Alternatives Law

What Public Notice Requirements Are There For a Real Estate Foreclosure in Arkansas?

In the absence of specific language in the loan documents that would indicate otherwise, the lender is required to provide the following notice to the public of a non judicial foreclosure sale. The lender is required to file a Notice of Sale in the County Recorder / Land Records Office. Then, for at least 4 consecutive weeks, the lender must advertise the foreclosure sale in a newspaper of general circulation in the county where the property is being foreclosed. The final publication concerning the foreclosure sale must be at least 10 days prior to the actual sale. 
The court action initiated by a lender in a judicial foreclosure is considered public notice for that type of foreclosure action.
