Bankruptcy Can Stop Foreclosure

Las Vegas Nevada Real Estate Attorneys discuss how Bankruptcy Can Stop Foreclosure.

Typically, if the home is foreclosed, the owner loses everything. 


Nonjudicial foreclosure is the primary type of foreclosure process in Nevada. This process involves several essential steps that occur outside of the court system. Here is a comprehensive explanation of how nonjudicial foreclosure works in Nevada: 


  1. Preforeclosure Notice: The process begins with the lender providing the borrower with a pre-foreclosure notice. This notice serves as an initial warning, informing the borrower that they have defaulted on the mortgage terms and that foreclosure proceedings may commence. 

  2. Notice of Default (NOD) and Election to Sell: Following the preforeclosure notice, the lender will issue a Notice of Default (NOD) and Election to Sell. This document states the amount owed by the borrower and provides them with a specified period to cure the default by paying the outstanding amount. 

  3. Foreclosure Mediation: In Nevada, there is an opportunity for foreclosure mediation, which is available to homeowners who meet certain criteria. Mediation is a process in which the borrower and lender attempt to reach a mutually agreeable resolution to avoid foreclosure. However, participation in mediation does not halt the foreclosure process.

  4. Danger Notice: If the borrower does not cure the default or reach an agreement through mediation, the lender will issue a Danger Notice. This notice informs the borrower that the property is facing imminent foreclosure and that certain rights will be lost if action is not taken promptly. 

  5. Notice of Sale: Once all the necessary notifications have been issued, the lender will provide a Notice of Sale. This notice includes information about the date, time, and location of the foreclosure sale. It must be recorded and published for a specified period, typically three consecutive weeks, prior to the sale date. 

  6. Foreclosure Sale: The final stage of the nonjudicial foreclosure process is the actual foreclosure sale. 


The property is auctioned off to the highest bidder at a public sale conducted by either the trustee or another authorized party. The winning bidder will typically be required to pay the purchase amount in cash or with an appropriate certified check. 


It is important to note that throughout the nonjudicial foreclosure process, the borrower has certain rights and protections, such as the opportunity for mediation and the ability to redeem the property under certain circumstances. 


However, if the borrower does not exercise these options, the lender proceeds with the foreclosure sale, and upon completion, ownership of the property transfers to the successful bidder.
