Foreclosure & Alternatives Law

What Public Notice Requirements are There for a Real Estate Foreclosure in Florida?

Florida follows a judicial foreclosure system. Therefore, all aspects of the foreclosure are governed by the court system. The public is put on notice of an intended foreclosure sale when the lender files a complaint in state court. A judge may require that additional public notice be provided in individual cases. Typically, the additional public notice includes publishing a notice of sale in the local newspaper according to the time frame set by the court.
