13 Oct What is the difference between a nonjudicial foreclosure and a judicial foreclosure?
Nonjudicial foreclosures are conducted by the lender in accordance with the terms of the mortage and in accordance with state law. Nonjudicial foreclosures can be completed in a relatively short time, and are not heard by a judge, unlike judicial foreclosures.
Judicial foreclosures require the lender to file a lawsuit with the court and ask a judge to foreclose on the borrower. A judicial foreclosure is more costly and is much more time-consuming than a nonjudicial foreclosure.
Almost all mortgage loans in Texas are foreclosed upon nonjudicially. The exception is home equity loans which require a judicial hearing. A nonjudicial foreclosure in Texas can occur in less than 60 days if there are no problems.
