    My home is being sold on the courthouse steps on November 5th. How many days after that do I have to move.

      I am so sorry to hear that , your bank won't allow a forebearance or anyway to save it? Both of my sister's went through it and it is 30 days and the norm right now is they get you a check to move so long as you do not destroy the property. This came from my little sister who's husband lost his job and JP gave them $2500.00 don't worry as they won't slam the gavel down and say get out in 24 hours as many are going through it and it is actually against the law to push people out when they don't have anywhere to go. I will keep you in my prayers , do keep your faith and the next one get will be better then the one before. smile

      Hello cntrybumpkin,

      I don't know much about but i have heard that it is 30 day. And the bank will keep an eye that you do not destroy the property.

    (I'm assuming you're in the United States.  If not, please let us know.  Perhaps someone knoledgeable about your country can help.)

    Procedures vary somewhat by state.  Here is list of links for each state's foreclosure procedures:

    It sounds like you're going through this all alone -- that should not be necessary.  Your city/town, county or state offices may have an office to help distressed homeowners.

    You could also try calling 1-888-995-HOPE (1-888-995-4673).  These are HUD-certified housing counselors who may be able to refer you to other helpful resources.

    If you have access to legal services, you may also want to consider filing for bankruptcy ... though that would need to happen almost instantly.

    You're in my thoughts.
