The Sequence of Foreclosure Events

Posted by Greg Moser on August 13, 2015

Foreclosures begin with the Trustor (borrower) not making the monthly payments to the Beneficiary (Lender).  The first missed payment is technically a default, but in practical terms, most Beneficiaries do not begin the actual Foreclosure process until the third or more payment is missed and when the market is down and Foreclosures are up, such as our current market  often lenders wait even longer before starting the process.  If the Beneficiary cannot resolve the defaulted payment amount with the Trustor through Forbearance or other remedies, the Beneficiary will instruct the Trustee to begin Foreclosure proceedings.
