List of Sales Foreclosure by Advertisement Foreclosure by Action Sale Procedure

These sales are conducted pursuant to a direct Order from a District Court Judge for the Sheriff to sell a specific parcel of real property.

The notices are prepared by the plaintiff’s attorney, similar to the Mortgage Foreclosure by Advertisement, or may be prepared by the Sheriff.  However, the Sheriff or a Deputy will sign the Notice of Sale.  Service of the Notice of Sale is usually done by the Sheriff’s Office by posting in the courthouse as well as publication in a legal newspaper as required by law.
