Foreclosure

questions & answers

Question: What is the actual process for evicting a homeowner after the property has been foreclosed, including timeframes?

Answer: After a house has been foreclosed, the creditor is free to sell the home. Once the home has been sold, if the old owner is still occupying the home, the new owner must give five days notice to vacate the property. After the five days, if the old owner is still occupying the property, the new owner can file a forcible detainer suit to have the old owner physically removed by the Sheriff. Also, the old owner may be charged with criminal trespassing. See A.R.S. 12-1171 to 1183
