How long does a foreclosure take in Florida?

There’s really no set answer to this question.   Foreclosures in Florida move much quicker than they did five years ago as the numbers of Foreclosures have decreased.  If a homeowner that is served with a foreclosure complaint does not defend the foreclosure or obtain an attorney to defend the foreclosure, the foreclosure process can likely take between six to eight months.    If a Homeowner hires an attorney to defend the foreclosure, it can take much longer.   During this time, the homeowner can attempt to obtain a loan modification or sell their property through a short sale.  The advantage of defending the foreclosure is that it allows you time to learn about your options  If you have been served with a foreclosure complaint in Florida, contact the Law Office of Brian P.
