Save Your Home From A Sheriff Sale
At Goering & Goering, LLC, our experienced bankruptcy attorneys understand the thought of losing your home in foreclosure is one of the most stressful debt problems imaginable. Many people try to get loan modifications or believe they will find another way to catch up, only to have time run out. In some cases, they start considering bankruptcy only weeks or days before the sheriff is scheduled to sell their property. Don’t take on your financial burdens alone. We have extensive experience and knowledge that we will leverage to create a strategic plan and find a viable solution.
What Is A Sheriff Sale?
A sheriff’s sale is a public auction where buyers can bid on foreclosed properties. They take place in the sheriff’s office or the county courthouse. They are distinct from foreclosure auctions in that the foreclosed property was repossessed through a court order.
The state of Ohio is a judicial foreclosure state, meaning the court will oversee all foreclosures and therefor all efforts to sell foreclosed property in Ohio will be sheriff’s sales.
How To Stop A Sheriff Sale
If you are facing foreclosure and a sheriff sale of your Ohio home, we can help you explore your options to stop the sheriff sale, including:
- Obtaining a Stay of Sale Motion from the state court judge
- Filing a Chapter 7 or Chapter 13 bankruptcy
- Applying for a Loan Modification
At Goering & Goering, LLC, in Cincinnati, we have successfully stopped sheriff sales for clients by filing their bankruptcy cases as late as the morning of the sheriff sale. While we encourage you to get qualified counsel and learn options for stopping foreclosure as early in the mortgage foreclosure process as you can, please do not assume that all is lost once a sale has been scheduled. If you qualify, an “emergency” bankruptcy may be the answer.
